Reed: 'I Was Duped By The Religious Right'

DAWSONVILLE, GA (IWR News Satire) - In his press conference today, Ralph Reed told reporters that he was duped by the Religious Right and tricked into thinking he was doing the Lord's work by lobbying for Jack Abramoff and those Indian casinos.

"If only the Religious Right and the Christian Coalition had promoted peace, honesty, compassion and tolerance, I wouldn't have gotten in all this trouble with federal prosecutors. 

In retrospect, I guess I should have spent more time helping the poor instead of working with casinos to fleece the underprivileged, but I was duped by the Christian Coalition's underlying Social Darwinist message: 'God helps those who help themselves'.

Hasn't the real purpose of religion always been to back the powerful and exploit the weak?  How was I supposed to know that kickbacks, gifts and bribes were criminal activities?  It just sounded like business as usual to me," said Reed.
