David Harsanyi has an article out that’s a must-read. Though not a social conservative, he correctly identifies where the true threats to our freedoms are.
***Here’s a hint: it’s not from us crazy religious folks.
A brief snippet:
“Are you sick and tired of these moralizing moralizers imposing their morality on the rest of us? I know I am.
Though it’s commonly said that social conservatives would force us to live under theocratic rule if they could, these days the group most successful in imposing its worldview on others happens to be called the Democratic Party.
Just ask more than 40 Catholic organizations — the Catholic University of America, the University of Notre Dame, the archdioceses of New York and Washington, etc. — that filed suit against Obamacare’s contraception mandate. Churches and other private institutions are impelled by government to break conscience in the name of state.
Religious freedom is, of course, limited to the interests of public health, but because contraception is relatively cheap, available in five minutes wherever you happen to be standing at this moment and covered by nearly every insurance plan, the only reason the administration mandates contraception is to coerce everyone to abide by left-wing orthodoxy.”
Here’s the link. Read it all:
From the original article:
“Though it’s commonly said that social conservatives would force us to live under theocratic rule if they could, these days the group most successful in imposing its worldview on others happens to be called the Democratic Party.”
“Vice President Joe Biden once claimed that this debate is about ‘the right of women to decide for themselves, whether or not they want to use contraception’ — but not, you should note, allowing women to decide what kind of health insurance they can buy.
“How does coercion become ‘choice'”?”
These are just a couple more examples of Democrat Newspeak. Just take whatever the ‘Rat is saying and turn it 180 degrees—you’ll be a lot closer to the truth.
This nonsense is aided and abetted their media lackeys, who will credulously report any nonsense these people care to spout while twisting and slanting the words of any conservative/Republican to portray them in the worst possible light.
Dagnabbit! “BY their media lackeys…”
Agreed, Buckeye. Although if you are watching the numbers right now, the worm is starting to turn.
And the old media, try as they might, can’t figure out how to stop it.
