Worldnutdaily: Dems Talk to Ghosts!

Set your irony meters for stun, kids. The Worldnutdaily reports on a new Pew survey that shows that Democrats are more likely than Republicans to visit psychics and believe they can talk to the dead.

Democrats are far more in touch with the dead than Republicans and they also visit fortune-tellers more often, a new study reveals…

The results also show that Democrats are far more likely to believe in supernatural phenomena than Republicans.


Now here’s the punchline: The very next paragraph is a link to a book about the Bible and such things:

The Bible has plenty to say about communicating with the dead and dabbling with mediums, psychics, fortune-tellers, witchcraft, astrology and characters such as the devil and his wicked demons. Find out specifics in this autographed, No. 1 best-seller that champions the truth of God!

As if believing in God was not believing in the supernatural? There are a couple of fairly obvious differences between talking to psychics and talking to God. First, psychics actually exist even if their claims of supernatural powers are nonsense. Second, I don’t know of any Democrat who pushes policy positions based on the “word of Sylvia Browne” (no, that was Nancy Reagan’s problem).
