The Keyes Choice: GOP or God

Alan Keyes as quoted by the BBC: "I think it's perfectly clear if you ask people are you going to vote against God or for the Democratic party they will stand with God."

Now I am not the greatest orator of the 21st century or anything, but it seems to me that Mr. Keyes has presented us with a peculiar choice -- a choice between voting against one thing -- God -- and voting for another -- the Democratic party. This odd construction of the choice put forward by Mr. Keyes means that, because the choice is between voting for or against, the thing that you can vote against and the thing you can vote for are the same, i.e., you can vote against X or you can vote for X.

Therefore, because we all know that Alan Keyes has few equals in his understanding of the issues or his ability to articulate core values and principle, Alan Keyes clearly thinks that the Democrats are the party of God.
