Jerry Burris: “Abercrombie is one of just a handful of members of Congress who do not declare a religious affiliation”
By Andrew Walden @ 12:35 PM :: 9254 Views :: Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

With Hawaii media in full lie mode spreading the ridiculous and unfounded assertion that Abercrombie is an Episcopalian, we thought we’d treat our readers to a short trip down memory lane.  The date: March 12, 2008.  The publication: something called the Honolulu Advertiser. 

Here is what Burris wrote:

Abercrombie is one of just a handful of members of Congress who do not declare a religious affiliation. Inspired by a recent Vatican statement that said such things as genetic manipulation and the gap between rich and poor can be looked upon as mortal sins, Abercrombie was moved to ask: What about torture?

It's a matter of some importance to Abercrombie and others in Congress who are trying to push through a ban on torture by federal agents. An intelligence bill that contains such a ban has been vetoed by President Bush.

It's interesting. While Abercrombie may be among the few people in public life who officially do not have a religious affiliation, he clearly understands the moral power of the Church.

When will the media stop torturing us with their lies?
