Texas Governor Mobilizes Evangelicals

Texas Governor Mobilizes Evangelicals: "'One of the great myths of our time is that you can't legislate morality,' the governor told the ministers, according to a transcript provided to The Associated Press by his campaign.

'If you can't legislate morality, then you can neither lock criminals up nor let them go free. If you can't legislate morality, you can neither recognize gay marriage nor prohibit it. If you can't legislate morality, you can neither allow for prayer in school nor prevent it,' he said. 'It is a ridiculous notion to say you can't legislate morality. I say you can't NOT legislate morality.' "

Jeez, this is from the governor of Texas. And double negatives aside...the obvious question becomes.."and just who's morality are you planning on making the law of the land?" Which, of course, is where the who idea crumbles and those that don't believe in the governor's brand of morality end up in prison.
