Living in a State that has basically said it is okay to hate Jewish people and drive them away from your towns and schools through intimidation is bad enough, but to have that level of hate and stupidity sanctioned and supported by your elected officials is just sickening.
While at least one state legislator spoke in "support of prayer" and warned board members that "the people" would replace them if they "faltered" on the issue, thereby actively
driving the Dobriches out of Sussex County, we also have Michael Newbold Castle and his inaction. Mr. Castle who is the leader of Delaware Republicans was complicit in the Dobrich intimidation through his silence.
For simple political advantage Mr. Castle and his party have nurtured this oxymoronic Christian hate. They have nursed the haters and emboldened them to their anti-American sectarianism. As Karmic Jay
has stated, There is also a larger issue here, that of some people thinking that the religious conservatives on the right are merely concerned about abortion. The Christian rightwing is not just interested in taking away the right to choose from women, they also want a nation based on biblical laws.
Where does Castle come off supporting a person like George Bush for President, and people like Roberts and Alito for the Supreme Court then washing his hands of the hateful and twisted fruit that falls from that tree? Where was Michael Castle when Sussex County Republicans, who are so openly contemptuous of traditional American values of religious toleration and diversity were being courted? Where is the accountability for Castle's lack of leadership within his party and within the State of Delaware ?
