By JAVIER MANJARRESWith the mayor of Flower Mound, Texas declaring that 2014 will be the “year of the Bible,” could this be another opportunity for Democrats to label Bible-reading (Bible Thumping) Republicans as extreme obstructionists, who just want to deport all illegal immigrants and keep gays from getting married?
There is a very good chance that Democrats will pounce on this is, especially after the recent Duck Dynasty controversy about gays, and the fact that Obama and his amigos will need as many distractions as possible to keep Americans from focusing on the disastrous Obamacare healthcare law, which has proven to be one continuous train wreck.
But will Americans, both Republican and Democrat, embrace the Bible and their core conservative values, as the Texas mayor believes they will?
If the Democrats do use this as a line of attack, it will be interesting to see if Republicans will push back against the attack.
“There’s so much benevolence on helping your fellow person,” Hayden told MyFoxDFW.com. “And the morality that helped build our country is based on the values that are found in the Bible. And as we look at problems, maybe we’re getting away from those values. And in my little small way, I want to encourage people to get back into those values.”-Tom Hayden, Mayor of Flower Mound, Texas
