With the Republican presidential primary fiasco in progress, I have discovered that a lot of fun can be found over at Redstate. The sheer agony that they are going through is nothing short of delightful. Their world is coming apart and they are moving toward the epiphany that this country is NOT really conservative.
Today, there is an diary up there that I urge everyone here to read in its entirety. It is What Conservatives Really Believe by Toby Calvert-Lee. It is actually a fairly accurate articulation of their positions and we are well served to read and fully understand it.
I will copy small parts of it and begin the analysis and counterpoint below the fold. I hope others will join in on the fun. The sheer hypocrisy in this article is completely over-the-top.
As Conservatives, we understand that the nuclear family of aSo, in other words, if you do not have one father and one mother you are destined to not contribute (positively) to society. I guess that explains why Obama is such a disaster. Everything makes sense now.
single man and a single wife, bonded in holy matrimony in order to rear the
next generation, is the cornerstone of a healthy society, a healthy economy,
and ordered liberty. Without a strong family, the next generation will cease to
be contributing members of society, and our nation will descend into the same
abyss that most of the rest of the world finds itself in today.
Here we also see the argument against homosexual led families. Apparently a society with large numbers of same-sex couples will lead to an unhealthy economy. So, do you same-sex couples not buy anything? How is it that being of the same-sex and raising a family you can get by without consuming very much?
And it's got to be "holy matrimony." Wow!! We obviously need to outlaw marriage by Justices of the Peace. I mean, that is state sponsored matrimony that is not "holy."
And the rest of the world is an abyss. I didn't know that.
The name of Conservatism has been dragged through the mud byNo Toby, you are doing an excellent job of diving headfirst into that muddy cesspool of bigotry and unwarranted hatred all by yourself.
the left and the elite, who look down on these values that define our movement
and our country.
