Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Robin Hayes: Iraq Needs Jesus

Remember Robin Hayes, the North Carolina congressman who said while introducing John McCain recently that “liberals hate real Americans that work and achieve and believe in God”? Here’s another recent statement by him that you’ll love:

First there’s the usual talk of how we’re “winning” over there: “The war in Iraq has got to be won; it’s being won” (A couple of months ago Hayes said that the rise in violence in Iraq was an indication that we’re winning.)

Then comes the real kicker: “Stability in Iraq ultimately depends on spreading the message of Jesus Christ, the message of peace on earth, good will towards men. Everything depends on everyone learning about the birth of the Savior.”
