Alabama Lawmaker Tells Christian Coalition To "Go Straight To Hell"
Lawmaker rebukes Christian Coalition
Tuesday, August 15, 2006
KIM CHANDLER
News staff writer

MONTGOMERY - The Christian Coalition of Alabama claims allegiance with heaven, but a Montgomery lawmaker on Monday told the group's leader to go some place warm and fiery.

Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery, responding to the group's annual political questionnaire, asked the Coalition President John Giles to first answer questions about casino-interest money the group received and other matters.

"Until you answer these three questions, Go straight to hell," Holmes wrote.

Reveal its sources of income.

Disclose if it received any money from Ralph Reed or convicted lobbyist Michael Scanlon to lobby against gambling in Alabama.

Explain why the group opposed a bill that would require nonprofits to reveal sources of income if they do election advertising.


Holmes signed the letter "Peace be with you."

7. The black lawmakers standing up to the RW establishment in the South
are always attacked, very viciously in fact. I hope he survives this!

10. I second that sentiment...
The CC can not go to hell fast enough in my mind.
How DARE they hijack my faith, the tali-born-agains...
They shame the words of scripture.
Jesus weeps at such hypocrites.
