The Weekly Standard hands over its pages to the Family Research Council for an attack on Dick Armey's critique of Christianism.

Armey and countless others question that strange assumption. The writer also seems to favor federal constitutional amendments banning all abortion and all gay unions. Yep, this is the new "conservatism:" constitutional amendments that remove freedom and impede state experimentation.
