Hardball with Chris Matthews- Tuesday, April 4, 2006

This past Tuesday, Chris Matthews was "interviewing" shamed-into-retirement Rep. Tom Delay. During the back and forth (which can only be described as Chris tossing softballs at Tom), DeLay's faith was also discussed on "Hardball" and he said there are some "strong moral Democrats." When asked to name one, he said: "Barney Frank." More DeLay: "I don't agree with homosexuality, but I still — I am commanded to love Barney Frank. I'm not going to judge him."

Note: For some reason, this portion of the interview has been "edited" (deleted) from the transcripts on Chris Matthews MSNBC page.

This prompted a response from Rep. Barney Frank, "I am compelled and more than happy to release Mr. Delay from that commandment."
