They Said It

In our very first edition of "They Said It" we take a look at Donald Rumsfeld, James Dobson, Pat Robertson, and Jerry Falwell.

Via Think Progress-

"US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld issued a terse warning to Iraq's new leaders on Tuesday, urging them to avoid... cronyism that could lead to corruption and sap confidence in government."- Financial Times 4/11/05

...

"President Bush has nominated Vice President Cheney's son-in-law [lobbyist Philip Perry] to be the general counsel of the Department of Homeland Security." -The Washington Post, 4/1/05

Via Left in the West-

Pat Robertson
"Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

James Dobson
"State Universities are breeding ground, quite literally, for sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV), homosexual behavior, unwanted pregnancies, abortions, alcoholism, and drug abuses."

Jerry Falwell
"If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being."

And my absolute favorite...
"Grown men should not be having sex with prostitutes unless they are married to them."
