This editorial from National Review is wisdom crying out in the streets. It’s just plain old common sense, which for some reason has become increasingly uncommon these days. It takes on two popular tropes from the Left:
1. “Don’t like abortion? Don’t have one.”
2. “How will my gay marriage affect you?”
Well guess where this faux libertarianism has led us? It has led us to totalitarianism on our doorstep. Do you think I’m exaggerating? Did you know that the ACLU is suing the U.S. Catholic bishops and trying to get the government to force them to offer abortions at Catholic hospitals? Did you know that right now there are lawsuits against Christian business owners in several states trying to force them to participate in gay weddings?
What’s going on here? Here’s the bottom line. The Left is in an all-out war against religious liberty. The pressure points are the issues of abortion and gay marriage. The Left is not offering a “live and let live” arrangement. They are going for the total conquest of anyone whose conscience forbids them from affirming gay marriage or the killing of unborn children. If you think I am exaggerating, you’re not paying attention to what’s unfolding all around us in broad daylight right before our very eyes.
