In the AL-05 race, the Christian Coalition of Alabama does not care for the “Misleading Attack Ads By Casino-Funded Freedom’s Watch,” according to a Friday release from CCA Chairman Randy Brinson. Freedom’s Watch ran the ads against Democratic candidate Parker Griffith on behalf of Republican Wayne Parker.
It’s hard to know what to excerpt from their release, as it is all pretty interesting reading. Some will nods their heads in agreement, others will be incensed.
Here are a couple of excerpts:
Given the nature of the attacks on Griffith, it is especially important to note that the person funding and directing the decisions at Freedom’s Watch is casino baron, Sheldon Adelson. Adelson has made billions of dollars in the Las Vegas casino industry and through his investments in China. His casinos have been fined $1 million for rigging games; he is under investigation by the federal government for coercing employees into giving up health insurance; and he spearhead and funded the lobbying effort to secure the Olympics for China in the face of the public outcry over China’s human rights record and persecution of Christian missionaries.
Our hope is that this Congressional race will be determined on the issues that concern all Christians, particularly issues of preservation of life and preservation of the traditional family. We would welcome a conversation by Wayne Parker and Parker Griffith that focused on these more important issues to the people of the fifth district.

Randy Brinson, the head of the CCA, interviewed Parker Griffith, and you can see video from that interview here.
This is not your father’s CCA.
