Not Good For The Gander

For the past decade the liberal machine has waged a relentless war on God and, peripherally, Christmas. All the while, one front has busily chipped away at the pillars of religion while their more congenial cohorts have assured the rest of us that we were just imagining the whole thing. They weren't trying to destroy the very concept of God, we were told, they were simply trying to preserve the Constitution and the American way. Poppycock.

The ideal that they were trying to convince us was under attack was the imaginary wall, the separation of church and state. Supposing that such a thing actually existed, it is quite a stretch to contend that school children singing Christmas carols would place such a revered stanchion in jeopardy, but that was indeed part of the fight. So I have a question for the lunchbox liberal who would venture to march in the streets with placards or petition the Supreme Court to immediately halt such a heinous activity; why the double standard?

The Freedom of Choice Act, which failed to get out of subcommittee in 2004, is once again simmering on the back burner, ready to move to the first position on the stove. The bill's original sponsor, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., is prepared to re-introduce FOCA in the hopes that its co-sponsor will readily sign it into law. That co-sponsor is now President of the United States.

The Freedom of Choice Act is a bill that would make a Supreme Court precedent a law, that precedent being Roe v. Wade. What's worse, it would force any medical institution to provide an abortion to anyone who wanted one. This is causing quite a bit of consternation amongst the Roman Catholic Church, which operates 624 hospitals, nationwide; 624 hospitals which may close if they are forced to murder children in direct violation of their belief system.

So where is the double standard, you ask? It is in my wondering why children singing in school is so dastardly that it must be stopped to preserve the imaginary wall of separation, but government dictating to private religious hospitals that they must violate their creed is not a cause for concern, so much so that they would deprive people of other care they might benefit from had the hospitals stayed open. If you want religion out of government then government must be prevented from interfering in religion. You can't have both.

There is an old saying; What's good for the goose...well, you know the rest.
