This might be the single worst attack I've heard of from this election, and I think that's saying something.

Campaign mail with a return address of the Republican National Committee warns West Virginia voters that the Bible will be prohibited and men will marry men if liberals win in November.

The literature shows a Bible with the word "BANNED" across it and a photo of a man, on his knees, placing a ring on the hand of another man with the word "ALLOWED." The mailing tells West Virginians to "vote Republican to protect our families" and defeat the "liberal agenda."

Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie said Friday that he wasn't aware of the mailing, but said it could be the work of the RNC. "It wouldn't surprise me if we were mailing voters on the issue of same-sex marriage," Gillespie said.

What's even more unbelievable is that this attack isn't coming from some fringe PAC or 527. This isn't being mailed out by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth or Club for Growth. This mail piece went out with a return address from the Republican National Committee. Ed Gillespie isn't denying that its from his people. He's actually saying that it might be his. I'll say more about it later. Right now, I'm too disgusted to put words to page.
