Although I'm not a Southerner (I was born in western Pennsylvania), I cannot sit idly by while a lady's honor is besmirched – especially when that lady is my co-worker.
It's always interesting when a high-profile Religious Right activist has a change of heart.
Consider Frank Schaeffer. The name may not be familiar to you, but Schaeffer's father, theologian and Presbyterian pastor Francis Schaeffer, was pivotal in the creation of the Religious Right.

Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute wrote recently, "In fact, without the influence of Francis Schaeffer, who often was prodded into action by Frank, the so-called Christian Right of today would not exist."
