The culture war -- and the showers -- are hot!

David Limbaugh sounds alarm over Texas Y facility buckling to 'the totalitarian left'

Wake up, conservatives – and Christians. We’re getting our rear ends handed to us, and we’ll continue to if we don’t do a better job of fighting back.

I’m not just talking about electoral politics. Liberal and secular activist groups are as aggressive as ever and winning, energized and enabled by this most radical of administrations – and equally so by deer-in-the-headlights conservatives.

The latest episode in this particular series of unfortunate events involves the Y’s rolling over to the relentless bullying of pro-abortion activists to evict Students for Life of America from its facilities.

These self-depicted arbiters of tolerance are in reality poster boys for the “Do as I say, not as I do” school. Indeed, the best formula for failing to meet the standard of tolerance that leftists demand is to behave precisely as they do, not as they say. If, on the other hand, you truly want to live and let live – as these sanctimonious scolds insist we do – you must studiously observe their conduct and behave in exactly the opposite way.

But from a leftist perspective, it’s not enough for conservatives to peacefully coexist with liberals and let them do as they please. They are satisfied only if they browbeat dissenters into silence or social banishment.

If you are a group that supports legal protection for the unborn, your views are not entitled to respect from the other side; they’re not even entitled to coexist alongside the opposite view – you know, that morally superior view that holds that a woman’s right to destroy human life while in her body and sometimes even when it emerges (for any reason at all, no matter how selfish and sordid)

Since when are “liberals” liberal? They tolerate no alternative views. They have their own form of political/religious orthodoxy and will tolerate zero heresy. Unlike medieval religious persecution, though, they not only will prosecute those who try to spread their heresy...they will seek out those who even dare to have thoughts that do not “think” properly.
