Liberalism and Secular Humanism

The Democratic Party is the party preferred by atheists and secular humanists.  Liberals are opposed to Christianity (more than any other religion) because it does not permit a society where anything goes.  Liberals would love to see religion removed from American society, because with God out of the way, everything would be permissible.

Liberals, in close cooperation with the ACLU, vigorously oppose the display of the Ten Commandments on public property, prayer in public schools, prayer in any public building or ceremony, or any other religious observance in public.

To convince people that religion is a bad thing, liberal Democrats try to have Americans believe that Christians are secretly plotting to establish a Christian theocracy in America.  Of course that's a vicious canard, but truth doesn't seem to matter to the typical liberal.

I would laugh out loud if this were not so tragic.
Abortion Is a 'God-Given Right,' Liberal Leader Declares.  Rev. Carlton Veazey, president and CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, told a small crowd of pro-abortion protesters that women have a "God-given right" to abortion and that opposition from pro-life congressmen and religious leaders would never take it away.

Liberal Neutrality:  Anyone who believes what the average American believed half a century ago — about the role of the courts, abortion, sexual morality, and of course Jesus Christ — is now damned as a "bigot" or "extremist" by liberal opinion.

What's next for liberalism?  The cultural liberalism that emerged from the convulsions of the 1960s drove the liberal faith out of the mainstream.  Its fundamental value is that society should have no fundamental values, except for a pervasive relativism that sees all values as equal.  Part of the package was a militant secularism, pitched against religion, the chief source of fundamental values.

Framing blogs:  Last year the very smart political scientists Louis Bolce and Gerald De Maio completely unwrapped the orthodox newsroom view of religion and politics. … [They] believe newsrooms have been partisan in the debate for many years, partly because so many reporters are Democrats who do not go to church and do not fully understand that secularism is basically an aggressive quasi religion now central to the core constituency of the Democratic Party.

Taliban west?  Secularits are in a state of panic about the role of evangelical Christians in the reelection of George Bush.  They actually believe that American democracy is in danger, that we are on the verge of becoming a theocracy.  "Putting God in the public square runs the risk of turning our democracy into a theocracy," frets DeWayne Wickham in USA Today.  Leonard Pitts of The Miami Herald warns darkly of "the soldiers of the new American theocracy who want to force 'creation science' on the schools."

Note:  Most liberals don't actually believe we're headed toward a Christian theocracy, but it is to their advantage to spread such a story.  Of course there are a few people whose lifestyles really would suffer under a Christian theocracy, and they're probably genuinely afraid.

We all have faith in something.  The Democratic gospel preaches an all-encompassing faith that politics and government will solve our personal problems.  Not earning enough money?  Don't have a high-school diploma?  Not happy with your insurance policy or retirement plan?  Is your daughter pregnant?  Feel in general that your life is out of control?  Turn to President, Senator or Congressman Democrat and get it solved.

Why Liberals Hate Religion:  Liberals seem to have a tough time deciphering certain portions of the writings of our Founding Fathers.  Specifically, the Bill of Rights really seems to trip them up.

Robert Reich:  God is worse than terrorism.  Clinton's labor secretary has problem with those who believe in higher authority.  Robert Reich, the former U.S. labor secretary under President Bill Clinton, believes people who follow God pose a more significant threat to the modern world than terrorists do.

Where will the dems go?  [Senator Paul Wellstone's] Minnesota memorial [showed] us the religious Left:  They don't believe in God; they believe in politics.  The Democratic Party is their church, Wellstone their latest martyr, and the campaign a crusade.

Seven Places Where politics Doesn't Belong.  [#2]  Funerals:  Speaking of respect, how did we get to the point where funerals have become about politics?  [Heck], at Paul Wellstone's memorial service they did everything short of a balloon drop. ... Most people die and are quickly forgotten.  At least give them a decent send-off without cheapening their lives by corrupting their funerals with petty politics.

Just Say Merry Christmas.  Perhaps nothing exposes the gap between secular liberals and conservative Christians as much as Christmas.  It may also help explain why the Democrat Party, which has been taken over by a small, but powerful cadre of secular liberals, is slipping into political oblivion.  Even though practically the whole country is adorned with Christmas decorations, all across America secular liberals are doing all that they can to suppress the public acknowledgment of Christmas.

God and Politics:  Partisan media stalwart Helen Thomas is just the latest in a long line of commentators to argue that religion and politics don't mix.  Like the others, she is woefully misguided.

It's time for American Jews to open their eyes.  It was Rep. Jim Moran, a Democrat from Virginia, who claimed that a Jewish cabal stood behind the Iraq war.  It was former Rep. Cynthia McKinney, a Democrat from Georgia, who took money from anti-American and anti-Israeli terrorist supporters during her candidacy for Congress.  It was Vermont's Howard Dean, a Democrat, who labeled Hamas members "soldiers."  It was Sen. Robert Byrd, a Democrat from West Virginia, who was once Grand Kleagle in the Ku Klux Klan.  It was Sen. Ernest Hollings, a Democrat from South Carolina, who blamed the Iraq war on pro-Israeli interests.

Know Who Your Friends Are.  As an American Jew, one who naively voted Democratic up until 9/11, but now an unabashed Bush and War on Terror supporter, I have seen the proverbial light.  Sadly, precious few others of my ilk have.  I can count on one hand the number of Republican Jews I have in my family or close friend base and can count on two hands the number of Bush supporting Jews I know.

One Nation Under God or One Nation Under Man.  Polling data shows that many who embrace the liberal policies of the Democratic Party are less religious than those who support the pro-life, traditional marriage policies of Republicans.  This divide first became apparent with the 2000 election.  Research notes that those who attended religious services more than once a week supported Bush by a margin of 2 to 1 while those who never attended religious services supported Gore by the same margin.

Abortion:  An indispensable component of the Democratic platform.
