No Room for WHINOS:
by Mass Resistance
Rev. Scott Lively answers back!
As the establishment's screeds against the rally raced over the Internet, on the radio, and elsewhere, Rev. Scott Lively answered back with this hard-hitting message on Friday. It was quickly embraced by the supporters of the rally and has been widely linked to and re-posted:
No Room for WHINOS in the Tea Party Movement
First we got RINOs, now it's WHINOS, so-called conservatives who whine about being criticized by the leftist media on social issues. There's a handful of WHINOs making a stink about my participation in the upcoming April 15th rally on the Boston Common, because they're afraid my Biblical views on homosexuality will "taint the movement." Well I have news for these WHINOs. I haven't backed down from the liberals. I'm certainly not going to back down from you.
My family's roots in this region go back to the 1600s, and my ancestors were among those who pledged "their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor" for the cause of freedom. If this movement which takes its name from those men of true courage allows itself to be stampeded by an increasingly toothless "mainstream media," it might as well give up and go home.
As for me, I will stand firmly on ALL the values of the Founding Fathers, not just the ones the Boston will tolerate. And like the Founders, I will be true to those values whether I win or lose political battles, because without them there is nothing left worth fighting for.
Pastor Scott Lively
The response by Tea Party leaders was overwhelmingly positive.
