Christian Right Leader Argues for Religious Liberty While Denouncing Wiccan Invocation Since That Mocks God

A few days ago, at the invitation of Iowa State Rep. Liz Bennett, Wiccan priestess Deborah Maynard delivered the opening invocation in the State House.

It was an excellent invocation, as far as those go, even though it was met with a silent protest by at least one lawmaker and complete dismissal of it by many others who instead attended an alternative prayer service arranged by Family Leader’s Bob Vander Plaats.

Later that evening, Vander Plaats hosted a forum on religious liberty featuring several potential GOP Presidential candidates, and he took the opportunity to denounce the Wiccan invocation.

Just this morning, in the Iowa capitol, which is totally within the religious liberty right, but you had a state representative invite someone to deliver a Wiccan prayer. Now, you may say that’s religious liberty, but I’d say you’d better be careful if you want to start mocking the God that you’re asking to bless this country. That’s a huge concern.

Because religious liberties must be protected at all costs… unless we’re talking about a non-Christian religion, in which case someone needs to sound the alarms.

How’s that for hypocrisy?
