    The Right-Wing Christian Dictionary

    In an effort to help communication between right and left wing people, it behooves us to make some reference to The Right-Wing Christian Dictionary. Yes, it's more in the vein of The Devil's Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce than a more scholarly tome but still worth a look. I guess it's made the rounds as a bit of internet flotsam but this is the first time I've seen it. Here are a few examples from it.

    Activist Anyone you disagree with. Thus, "activist" judges, "activist" unions, "activist" school boards, and "activist" homosexuals.
    Adam and Steve As in, "God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve." A clever saying you can use whenever you want to prove how brilliant and original you are.
    All political objectives you oppose. Democrats, liberals, feminists, environmentalists, and gays have "agendas." Right-wing politicians have "hopes" and "dreams" and "godly plans of action."
    Compassion The feeling you say you are expressing when you attack people you hate (especially homosexuals), so that you don't have to feel guilty. See "gay bashing," "death penalty."
    Conservative See "God."
