Southern Independence: Antidote to Tyranny
Has Ralph Reed abused and misled Christians for
In reviewing some of the
commentary on truth in political advertising ran across a disturbing
article about Ralph Reed's involvement in convicted felon Abramoff
activities. This time it is not fleecing Indians of their gambling
Ralph Reed lobbying for the sweat shops in the Northern
Mariana Islands where Chinese labors are brought in to produce "Made
in USA" label clothing. Hiring foreign labor to work in very
poor conditions for low wages for corporate greed is hardly what
many would consider a Christian way to do business.
But look at how Ralph Reed used his prior connections with
many Christians to exert pressure on Congress:
The flyer said the legislation would stop Chinese workers from
coming to the island where they are "exposed to the teachings of
Jesus Christ" and where many "are converted to the Christian faith
and return to China with Bibles in hand."
But no mention of the poor working conditions, poor pay and
reliance on foreign workers as cheap labor for corporate greed.
How many Christians were tricked into lobbying Congress to
continue questionable labor practices, possibly even to the extent
of supporting abortions?
"We . . . have evidence that
at least some of the Chinese workers, when they become pregnant, are
given a three-way choice: go home to China, get a back-alley
abortion on Saipan, or get fired."
In the questionable Indian Tribe dealings, with the
questionable false Ministry setup to lobby for China trade status,
the questionable lobbying for ENRON and now the lobbying for
questionable labor practices there is a common theme in Ralph Reed's
He did not know about the questionable practices and if he had
known he would have been opposed.
Seems that his knowledge swings with the amount of money (into
his pocket) involved.
We should look to men with a better record of taking
responsibility for their actions for our Lt. Governor.
|Abramoff lobbied against
legislation to impose federal wage and worker-safety standards
on garment factories in the Northern Mariana Islands, where
Chinese workers were brought in to produce clothing labeled
"Made in the USA." Abramoff received just over $4 million for
this work from 1998 through 2002.
On May 29 the Washington Post broke the story
that Reed, an old friend of Abramoff since college days, had
been hired to help in this effort as well. The newspaper
described a flyer sent by Reed's marketing firm in 1999 urging
Alabama conservative Christians to contact Bob Riley, then a
member of the House, to vote against the legislation opposed
by Abramoff. The flyer said the legislation would stop Chinese
workers from coming to the island where they are "exposed to
the teachings of Jesus Christ" and where many "are converted
to the Christian faith and return to China with Bibles in
As Cagle's ad says, however, the US
Interior Department had found a year earlier that female
Chinese garment workers were pressured to have abortions if
they became pregnant, and that women and children were
being forced into prostitution on the island. In a statement March
31, 1998, President Clinton's Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt
said, "We . . . have evidence that at least some of the
Chinese workers, when they become pregnant, are given a
three-way choice: go home to China, get a back-alley abortion
on Saipan, or get fired."
is that he was unaware of reports that women were being
mistreated, and was only working "to promote the propagation
of the gospel" among Chinese workers on the island. Reed's
spokeswoman Lisa Baron confirmed to the Post that
Abramoff hired Reed's marketing firm for the effort. But she
added, "As a defender of the unborn, Ralph was unaware of any
allegations regarding inhumane or illegal treatment of
workers, and he would strongly object to such practices, if
