You got it girl…
Christine O’Donnell, the Tea Party’s surprise winner in last night’s Delaware primaries, is a dead cert as a target for any number of silly and salacious articles in the upcoming run to the November polls.
At least one hopes to God she will be.
Put bluntly, Christine has form. And how! Her brand of Christianity is bound to raise eyebrows and perhaps even more.
For years her TV appearances as a Christian activist have provided a body of material certain to be trawled through for embarrassing tit bits. Here are just two for starters.
“Well, creationism, in essence is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24 hour periods. And there is just as much, if not more evidence supporting that”
But she has a fun side too. In the 1990’s she was an anti-masturbation crusader. Only in America could you have TV anti-masturbators. She appeared in MTV’s series “Sex in the Nineties” where she represented the “Saviour’s Alliance for Lifting the Truth Ministry” (SALT) warning the kids off masturbation as a form of adultery. Um yes. In case you think this was a youthful misjudgement – and I am with you there – she was still listed as SALT’s contact person in their web directory as late as 2009.
Now this is going to be one to watch.
