Gerry Connolly has been trying to attack Keith Fimian as a religious nut for practicing the same faith as Connolly, who earlier in his life attended seminary with the intent of becoming a Catholic priest before he developed a relationship with a nun and left. Fast forward to the present, and Connolly is attacking Fimian’s acceptance of the Holy Bible, of all things. This rather appalling attack against Fiminan’s christianity is hardly unprecedented, but it is utterly bizarre to see this coming from someone who studied for the priesthood.
Too Conservative sums this up pretty well:
Gerry Connolly is a corrupt and cutthroat man who has driven Fairfax County to a massive budget deficit and is now attacking his election opponent for being a faithful Catholic. Men like this don’t deserve elected office, especially in one of the most educated districts in the country. It is a shameful display, and you would have to be a complete fool or a complete hack to be proud of it.
If you’re in the Eleventh District and believe what the Bible says, this shouldn’t be the only factor that weighs on who you intend to vote for, but I’m pretty sure it would be a pretty significant one for you. Those that would claim that a candidate is disqualified for office because he believes the Bible demonstrate that they themselves are unlikely to posess adequate qualifications for office not because of their religious beliefs, but because they have shown that they are significantly out of touch with our political heritage and the ideals that founded our nation.
What kind of fool starts attacking his opponent in an election because of their belief in the Bible?
