CNN reports:
The Republican National Committee has brought on a director of evangelical outreach to massage the party's complicated relationship with religious conservatives, GOP sources told CNN on Saturday.

The party organization has hired Chad Connelly, a consultant and motivational speaker who, until this weekend, was the chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party.

... Connelly, a Baptist, has told multiple South Carolina Republicans that he will be steering the national party's outreach to faith-based groups....
Back in 2002, Connelly wrote a book in which he explained what he thinks of church-state separation:
About halfway into his 80-page tome, Freedom Tide, Connelly argues — as he frequently does — that the Founding Fathers Christians intended the United States to be a Christian nation....

But over the years, the anti-Founding Fathers forces have gotten their way, fooling the American public into believing untruths. Connelly writes:
The debate about our founders' intentions and where we stand today makes us question: what changed and when? William James, the father of modern psychology, said, "There is nothing so absurd, but if you repeat it enough, people will believe it." Adolf Hitler, like James, recognized the power of repetition in getting people to believe lies. "The ultimate Hitlerian propaganda technique is the principle of the big lie. Hitler declared '...that the very greatness of the lie is a factor in getting it believed ... a great lie is more effective than a small one...' In brief, the bigger the lie, the more likely it will be believed by the masses."
So, yeah -- if you oppose the establishment of religion you're using Nazi techniques, according to the nest Republican Party hire. How's that party rebranding working out for ya, GOP?

Connelly is also a former Amway representative. Perfect.

William James also said:

"A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices."

And here I thought Ralph Reed had the evangelicals covered.

Or, was that another scam he pulled on the dupes?

Or, maybe Connelly is right - after all, religion is in the 1st AMENDMENT:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

So, aha!
The Constitution was amended.
They DID change something!!!

Or, the man is a religious loon.
Yeah - that.
