Kansas votes to tax abortions — should labor unions be taxed as well?
(Page 4 of 4)
A highly accomplished woman who has served in business, run a city, run a state and been a vice-presidential nominee, Governor Palin is also the mother of five children and has often discussed how she wrestled personally with the issue of abortion when realizing she was carrying Trig, a Down syndrome baby. Who better to bring a government-mandated balance to the taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood and lead the 50 percent of conservatives who will be mandated to serve on the Planned Parenthood board than Sarah Palin?
Then there’s that stalwart of legal liberalism — the American Civil Liberties Union. Following The Sebelius Precedent, what’s to keep a future conservative administration from deciding that the ACLU is philosophically unbalanced? And removing the group’s right to run itself according to its own cherished liberal views of American life and law?
And so on and so on. Right through the long list of liberal’s sacred beliefs.
Come to think of it — perhaps the easiest way to do this is redefine liberalism and call it exactly what it has become: a religion. Replete with its cherished sacraments of global warming, abortion, labor unions and whatever else is in the liberal equivalent of the Bible — regulate all of it.
And tax it.
This would be funny if in fact the consequences of what the Obama Administration is actually doing with the Catholic Church weren’t so far reaching.
But the attack on the Catholic Church isn’t funny. It is in fact an attack on religious liberty.
And, while liberals may not yet realize it, it is precisely the kind of attack that can be turned around on those who launched it. Just as the Kansas legislature is doing by taxing the liberal article of faith that is abortion.
Otherwise known as The Sebelius Precedent.
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?
