We are lectured daily by our betters in the media and academia on the continuing dissolution of our freedoms under the oppressive reign of George W. Bush and his sneering sidekick, Richard B. Cheney. The dreaded duo and the rest of the vast right wing conspiracy have been especially vilified for curtailing free speech and accused of using nefarious methods to squelch opposition.
But the truth is, it is our friends on the left who have been attacking our most fundamental rights and freedoms for decades; forcing their will on the rest of us through unelected judges, the media and most effectively, our education system. Not only are our children subjected to textbook screeds on the evils of Western Civilization, but our college campuses, once the home of independent thought, have become dreary domiciles of forced conformity which oddly claim to champion the goal of “diversity.”
However, it is quite apparent that this diversity does not extend to religious freedom of opinion. In their quest to drive their socialist agenda at all levels, it should now be clear that one of the main leftist aims is to totally extinguish God from our public life, thus ridding “bitter” Americans of their addiction to the opiate of the masses.
In today’s America, any discussion based on religious principles is tantamount to imposing one’s own “mythical belief system” on the rest of us.
Of course, this is not the case when declaring that changes in the weather are caused by human activity or that homosexuality should be encouraged and promoted to our youth as an acceptable lifestyle. Certain truths that have been accepted for thousands of years are of no consequence to an “enlightened” generation who must silence truth’s message to advance their own.
A CASE IN POINT is Crystal Dixon, the associate vice president for Human Resources at the University of Toledo, who has been suspended for publicly airing her opinion about gay rights.
Ms. Dixon, a black alumna of UT, wrote an opinion piece in the Toledo Free Press in response to an editorial decrying certain perceived injustices against the rights of homosexuals committed by the University.p>In her column , she began by repudiating the laughable notion that, “those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are ‘civil rights victims.’” She went on to cite statistics that homosexuals actually earn more annually than the average American. But her real crime was this: br> /p>
There is a divine order. God created human kind male and female (Genesis 1:27). God created humans with an inalienable right to choose. There are consequences for each of our choices, including those who violate God’s divine order. It is base human nature to revolt and become indignant when the world or even God Himself, disagrees with our choice that violates His divine order. Jesus Christ loves the sinner but hates the sin (John 8:1-11.)br> Michael Miller, editor-in-chief of Toledo Free Press
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
