Hero of the Month - Senator Chuck Grassley

Chuck Grassley is receiving the first True Conservative of the Month award because of his bravery in facing down the very-well-connected televangelist industry.

Thanks to our Constitution, Americans have the right to worship, or not, as we see fit. We DON'T have the right to enrich ourselves in the name of religion and build criminal organizations masquerading as churches and try to protect ourselves from the fallout by buying politicians. Fortunately for us, Grassley is the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee. The likes of Creflo Dollar and Kenneth Copeland damage the legitimacy of the honest small-town community churches that make up the vast majority of American religious establishments.

The most laughable thing about these guys is that they're accusing GRASSLEY of breaking down the walls between church and state. Got a bad case of psychological projection there, guys? Actually, the most laughable thing is Creflo Dollar's name. Seriously. That's really what he goes around calling himself.

Here's a big "thank you" to Chuck. As much as Americans complain about the damage these snake-oil-selling characters do to the fabric of our society, we should honor the people who try to keep them honest - like Senator Chuck Grassley.

How's my favorite West Coast blogger? I agree--good for him. He's like Jesus overturning the money changer tables at the temple. Nothing worse than a person who commits a crime in the name of God--there is a special place in hell for those people--right next to people that steal from churches and the Atlanta Braves.
