Lincoln Club heaven

Jo Alegria
Jo Alegria

The San Diego Lincoln Club, locally famous for its takedown of Republican-turned-Democrat Nathan Fletcher during last November’s mayoral primary, has gotten involved in a campaign with lesser stakes but greater apparent spirituality. On September 8, the group gave $1000 to the Cajon Valley Union school-district board campaign of Jo Alegria. She is quoted in the January 2014 edition of Decision magazine of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association about a house blessing she and husband Charlie conducted at their newly renovated residence.

“‘I’ve got to be honest with you,’ she said as the first guests were arriving. ‘I’ve really been nervous about tonight. I think it’s because so many nonbelieving friends and family are coming. I asked a lot of my prayer groups to pray for me.’…The group socialized and ate pizza and snacks for about 45 minutes, and then Charlie prayed a prayer of blessing over the house.”

Billy Graham and the San Diego Lincoln Club. Conservative crazy allies. One damns the other for it's sexuality and the other seems to love rejection.

Maybe the Lincoln Club is just showing its respect for conservative women and Latino voters. Not a bad strategy, since the LC is a basically a bastion of rich white guys.

What a hoot! The right wing gays and the right wing religious nut bags. This could be that start of a new sitcom. LMAO
