ACLU, Shriver, Cuomo, Yoko Ono, Reid, Obama stand up for Texan’s beliefs.
Actions, as they say, speak louder than words.
And whatever the fear-mongering from the American Left about Texas Governor Rick Perry’s belief that America should be based on “Christian Values” (Perry believes in a Theocracy! Perry believes in a Christian Dominion! Oh My God Perry really believes in God!) — when push comes to shove, like iron filings to a magnet, there are no more fervent Perryites in the land responding to Christian values than some celebrated members of the American Left.
Including — particularly including — that notorious Christian Values group known as the American Civil Liberties Union.
That’s right. From one end of America to the other, the bluest of the blue turn positively crimson when the question is to live as Governor Perry suggests — or not. Without fail the choices they make in both their personal and public lives have them choosing Perry’s Christian Values over any other alternative.
There are names aplenty. They will be named here. And their actions are, thanks to their celebrity or political influence, well out there for all to see. No scurrilous, gossipy tidbits here. Just the facts ma’am. Just the facts.
So. Let’s take a walk through this interesting list of liberals who exemplify Rick Perry’s call for living life according to “Christian Values.”
First, the Christian Values themselves.
Christian Values, or perhaps more accurately Judeo-Christian Values, are, to a considerable degree, based on a series of rules straight from the Bible. Rules that are considered such an outrageous violation of “separation of church and state” according to liberal talking points, that only last week the American Civil Liberties Union filed another of those famous liberal complaints regarding the posting of these unspeakable rules in a Virginia school district. This one was filed against the Giles County School Board for allowing the rules to surface in the Narrows High School, where a lone student and parent protested. Says the Associated Press: “The lawsuit says the display unconstitutionally promotes a specific religious faith and serves no secular purpose.”
Catch that line? A “specific religious faith”? The display “serves no secular purpose.”
The rules, of course, are the Ten Commandments. And according to the ACLU they have “no secular purpose” — a position with which American leftists everywhere are always nodding vigorously.
Or are they?
A most interesting fact of life — if strangely never noted — is that when the rubber hits the road all manner of celebrated American liberals, led by the ACLU itself, cling to the Ten Commandments with the tenaciousness of a dog discovering his last bone. Teeth bared, suddenly furiously aggressive, these liberals want their favorite Commandments obeyed NOW. Right NOW! Or there will be hell to pay. And there frequently is.
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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
