The loss of religious and moral values by the Democrats gave Bush the election, and now Democrats wring their hands about the need to articulate clear moral values, which it does not possess.p>A party whose foundation rests on the philosophy that making moral and value judgments is immoral and which elevates moral equivalence of all beliefs and values to its center cannot then say it values one moral view over another. In a recent New York Times editorial, liberal religious activist Jim Wallis lamented the fall of Democrats because of their failure to stand for morality and religion, and then defined such standing as embracing government welfare programs for the downtrodden. Welcome to 1965, Jim. At any rate, the party identified with kicking Boy Scouts off government property, tearing crosses off city seals, relegating Christian symbols and language to underground status, lining up entertainment-industry elites with foul language and foul lives as its chief supporters, having labor leaders greedily run amuck at public expense, holding trial lawyers up as its priests, chasing the military off of school grounds, advocating alternative lifestyles as government policy with students forced to march lock step to its beliefs, protecting terrorists’ civil rights at the expense of American lives and obsessing with racial identity and victimhood has a long way to go to turn itself around. It cannot do so without the help of level-headed Democrats currently shoved to the margins of the debate by their own party. br> — Caroline Miranda br> North Hollywood, California /p> p> Sort of gives new meaning to the joke: How can you tell when a Democrat is lying?
