Please Explain It to Me


If Liberal-Progressive-Democrats and main stream media journalists were not atheists, or at least not in favor of organized religion, the most appropriate deity for them to worship would undoubtedly be the Roman two-faced god, Janus.

For example, many Liberal-Progressive-Democrats (L-P-Ds) try to undermine the Constitution of the United States because it is, in large part, based on the moral authority of the Founders, which, in their view, is non-existent because they owned slaves.  They ask how the words of Jefferson, Adams, Madison or Washington can be viewed as having any value at all when the authors of those words committed the heinous, inhuman crime of owning slaves themselves, or at least turned a blind eye toward the practice.

I’ll agree with the L-P-Ds if they can answer me just one question.

They tell us that we should not follow the precepts of governance that were outlined by the founders, because behavior that was acceptable in their society, in their era, makes them irrelevant to our society.  Perhaps the high priests of the Church of Janus could tell us why the words of Mohammed are still relevant and why the Koran must be treated with more reverence than our own oldest and most basic law of the land. Mohammed himself was someone who had sex with a nine-year old girl, waged wars of aggression and plundered the entire middle east, thought stoning a woman accused (just accused, mind you) of adultery was just peachy, and thought that slowly beheading a human being for insulting him was a reasonable punishment.

Tell us why those who follow the writings of Mohammed should be treated any better than a member of the Tea Party who follows the words of Jefferson, Franklin, and Adams.  In fact, perhaps you could explain why Muslims not shunned for their behaviors when those behaviors are based on the writings of a person, who had he been not named Mohammed, would have been called a moral degenerate?  Why are Islamists treated with kid gloves when there are credible reports that there are Muslims still practice slavery, and are planning genocide against the Jews.  Please, L-P-Ds, explain how their behavior is different from Nazis, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-tung or Pol Pot.

While L-P-Ds have displayed (on a good day) much condescension regarding what they feel is the quaint position of the Catholic Church and its positions on abortion and contraception, another question that needs to be answered by the propaganda arm of the Democratic National Committee, or as it is more commonly known, the main stream media, involves similar moral posturing.

These same media who attack the founders as being morally deficient have lionized Ms. Sandra Fluke for being “brave” enough to demand free contraceptives from a Catholic university so that she can, should she choose, have casual sex whenever she desires, with whomever she chooses, without any fear of pregnancy as a consequence of her choices.  Of course, in the event that the contraceptives do not prevent a pregnancy, an event that is eminently possible, she will then demand that this same Catholic university provide her with a fully funded abortion.

Demanding that a Catholic institution provide the means for Ms. Fluke to have sex outside of marriage, to prevent the conception of a child from such extra-marital sex, and if a pregnancy occurs even with these provided contraceptives, an abortion, paid for by this same Catholic institution.  Way to go, Ms. Fluke!  A hat trick!  Three mortal sins for the price of one!

Oh, and remember, while this homage to Ms. Fluke is going on, Newt Gingrich is being pilloried for his third marriage, in almost the same tones used when Sarah Palin was mocked for only having one husband, yet more than one child.  Apparently childbearing is now on a par with how much you’re supposed to earn.  There is some (poorly defined) point when L-P-Ds feel that you’ve earned enough.  It seems that there is a point when you’ve had enough children.  But the point is that Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich, according to the Church of Janus, are somehow morally deficient.

Yet Bill Clinton was given a pass on Monica Lewinsky.  Bill got another pass for Gennifer Flowers.  And in another hat trick, Clinton got a third pass concerning Juanita Broaddrick.

No moral turpitude here.  Nothing to see.  Move along.

Jack Kennedy received one pass on Marilyn Monroe and a second pass on a Mimi Alford, a then 19-year old intern working in the Kennedy White House.

No moral turpitude here.  Nothing to see.  Move along.

Jack’s brother, Teddy Kennedy, who left Mary Jo Kopechne to die, alone, in an accident due to drunk driving, was given a pass on that embarrassment.

No moral turpitude here.  Nothing to see.  Move along.

John Edwards didn’t even earn a “tsk-tsk” for having a child out of wedlock while still married to a woman dying of cancer.

No moral turpitude here.  Nothing to see.  Move along.

So please tell me, L-P-Ds and/or your drooling lap dogs in the main stream media, just what sort of moral stature do you display that entitles you to demonize on one hand, and canonize on the other?  Please, take you time.  Your answer should be extremely illuminating.

    A response to your article is forthcomming…I’m sure. Please be patient and tolerant as those you are ridiculing are so busy ridiculing others that it is difficult to fit your response into their schedules. Patience Jim, patience.
