Skip to comments.The Problem With The Religious Right: A Zot Leaves a Mark
Posted on 05/03/2007 8:46:24 AM PDT by CharlesS
In what Bill OReilly refers to as the Culture War between Conservatives and Liberals, there are those on both sides of the fence that stray so far to the left or the right, they actually help the enemy. On the left we have Rosie ODonnell with her anti-American rants which give Conservatives ammunition to shoot back at all liberals by associating them with Rosie. On the right, we Conservatives have our own villains which supply ammunition to the enemy. They are commonly referred to as the religious right...

So the problem with the religious right is that you disagree with their religious views and don’t think they should voice them in the public square...
As opposed to the atheist left?
I get it. Your problem isn’t that the religious right has their own views, you just don’t like it when they act in accordance with those views or desire to have the freedom to do so.
Is that better?
No thanks. Nothing really prevents you from posting it here.
This guy is behind the times in political correctness speech. Everyone is ‘right’ in their religious belief, thus the former ‘religious right’ is now more commonly known as the ‘morals voters’....
Or so it does not matter if the Hospital objects on moral principles. The government can force hospitals to assist in killing of a conceived child. Doesn't seem to be very much of a "Constitutionally Right" position to me, criminalizing religious positions. As if it being raped makes a difference. The rape position is just to get the foot in the door so they can make it a general policy like several other states have done.
I prefer the ever popular “EXTREMIST” label. It’s comfortable and I wear it like a pair of well worn jeans.
Funny, I thought we all somehow became 'neocons'.
I believe I heard Geraldo say something about the religious right on Bill O’s show last night.
Geraldo said that the reason the Republicans are a minority party is because of the religious right and the way it pushes its views on abortion.
At least that’s what I think I heard. Can anyone help?
Posting excerpts from a personal blog is tacky.
In addition to your valid considerations, I wonder about the criteria for determining whether one has been raped. Does an ambulance have to deliver a battered woman to establish it? Or may a woman simply claim she was raped and get the pill? This becomes a very slippery slope for any institution. Solution: take the woman to another hospital that will provide the pill. Leave conscientious objectors out of it.
Especially tacky when he does not respond, which seems to be most of the time. Trolling for website hits.
Gee...I guess George Washington and Abraham Lincoln wouldn’t fit into the straight jacket of banned religious expression that you would have Christians wear today.
When a political party decides that God doesn’t fit into its platform, that’s the time Christians should disassociate themselves from that godless bunch.
I think just like the way that 'red' got splashed over the conservative counties of this country as opposed to that 'blue' color, the leftist are going to subdue that word 'right' regarding religion and supposed religious voters.
Just does not sound centrists enough to be saying the religious right, so words like purists, or morals voters, serves their need to distinguish themselves from the 'extremists'. After all the majority of the whole world now condemns the idea that anyone can legislate morals.
That is why some segments of the moderate elite centrists can without blinking an eye contrast and compare 'morals voters' with the likes of the Tali-ban. That is just how embarrassing it is to the centrists to be associated with morals voters.
Well now if the story was about Iraq and getting the .ell out of there then it would be the proper term.
