I read it, and it’s crap. Conservatism is not about “moral absolutes” or rallying around the siren call(s) of any one religion, faith, dogma, or creed.

Conservatism is about letting the individual decide for him or her self what is, and isn’t, good, worthy, or desirable for him or self. Conservatism is about the sanctity of the individual and the choices said individual makes. It is not, and has never been, about “collective” morality.

And I truly pity those lost souls who feel that conservatism is about any form of collectivism, moral or otherwise.

What did you expect? I’ve read enough incredibly stupid things written by Medved over the years to the point that know I just ignore it. I was reading an article the other day in USA Today, didn’t look at the author just started reading. I got to the end and thought “Man, that was a stupid article, I wonder who wrote it?” Sure enough, Medved.
