Campaign story from the election of 2004

The AP reports here: "Campaign literature mailed by the Republican National Committee warns voters in two states that the Bible will be prohibited and men will marry men if 'liberals' win in November." The NY Times has a more detailed story here, which says among other things that "[t]he mailing seeks to appeal to conservative evangelical Protestant pastors and political leaders who say they worry that legal rights for same-sex couples could lead to hate-crimes laws that could be applied against sermons of Bible passages criticizing homosexuality."

This sounds like the story posted earlier from the election of 1800.

The liberals have been after those Bibles for over 200 years.

UPDATE: Documenting Democracy has this post.

So, where exactly would the woman from 1800 go to hide her Bible now?
