Monica Goodling's Idea of Christian Values

Monica Goodling is the fast moving, high-powered lawyer in the Department of Justice who according to her friends lives a life that reflects her religious values. Idealistic and with strong beliefs "against abortion and for equality and justice," she set her sights on Washington after learning her craft under the direction of Barbara Comstock who was responsible for opposition research against Al Gore (best known for painting an honorable public servant a congential liar) and while reporting to Tim Griffin, who has a record of voter suppression because obviously, if you let just anyone the vote, the wrong people might win.

"She lives a very faithful and religious life," says Johnson, who later served as White House liaison under Ashcroft, an unapologetic Christian who has taught at Regent. "She doesn't necessarily talk about it. She just lives it."

Ms. Monica Goodling believes that her Christian values and a strong belief in "equality and justice" commits her to smearing Democratic opponents, suppressing the votes, stripping the rights of citizens under the patriot act and enforcing a cultish devotion to Bush. One wonders what Jesus would think of her Christian values.

Well, that's not hard to figure out. From the book of Matthew:

"You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said: 'This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me; in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.'"
