Liberal Lunacy

Every day I have tons of positive things to write about; then I listen to talk radio, check the internet and hear about some outrageous liberal lunacy and I’m hooked.

Today’s edition is about the femi-nazis at NARAL Pro Choice America.

One of the leading abortion-rights groups took a swipe at cultural conservatives by inviting young donors to a "
Screw Abstinence Party" in Seattle. The event promo says: "Tired of Bush & Co. spending your tax dollars on abstinence-only-until-marriage initiatives that promote dangerous misinformation? Throw your hands up and say it loud: 'Screw Abstinence!'"

Even the lefty Seattle weekly, The Stranger, thought NARAL was making a politically foolish choice.

Does this strike anyone else as a cringe-worthy and counterproductive theme for a pro-choice fundraiser? It seems politically idiotic for the preeminent pro-choice group in the country to be sponsoring this pandering, pseudo-hipster 'sex positive' event.

The Stranger worries about stereotypes of the left as a promiscuous bunch of libertines.

Wow-weee, the left is 'pro-sex' and those meanie Christian activists want to preach abstinence in the schools. Look, I'm just as freaked out as anyone about the creeping evisceration of separation of church and state … but let's be smart politically. A 'Screw Abstinence' fundraiser is … trite, juvenile, and politically stupid.

When The Stranger thinks you are stupid libertines, you'd better worry.

NARAL's screwy party was designed to raise funds for programs to "secure comprehensive and medically accurate sex education" for all and sundry. NARAL wants your kids to be sexually active because it's good for business: Abstinent kids don't buy contraceptives and abortions.

NARAL committed a grave tactical error in revealing its true colors so brazenly. Moms and dads who may not have been paying much attention will now clearly see NARAL's pro-abortion, pro-contraception, pro-child-sex agenda. This event will likely have parents running to their school boards demanding protection from comprehensive sex education.

The historian Will Durant, writing of the decadence of ancient Rome, described this NARAL attitude as "a shallow sophistication which prides itself on childlessness and despair". For NARAL, sex is for gratification and nothing more - an animal action disconnected from anything higher than momentary physical pleasure.

When Democrats wonder why they get shellacked at the polls on the issue of moral values, they really need to look no further than at NARAL and similar groups.

We should get on our knees daily to thank GOD that President Bush will have the opportunity to pick 2-3 Supreme Court nominees. People (Hillary et al) who think like and support the NARAL crowd are too stupid to be given such authority.

Bill, I was appalled when I read of this "Screw Abstinence" event in your blog - so much so that I tried to research it ... the original information on the Washington site was pulled but I found it cached. . . .

"Come laugh, learn, socialize and buck the system at NARAL Pro-Choice Washington’s Screw Abstinence Party."

( BTW, NARAL has recently issued a statement on this party which tries to explain this event was aimed at 25-35 yr. olds for educational purposes) yeah, right - a local bar - great place for educators.

I thank God everyday for my precious daughter and the decision a young woman made 25 years ago - she chose LIFE - the greatest gift of all. Her courage and love puts all these NARAL people to shame -

I will never know this young lady who gave me the joy of motherhood but she is forever in my heart.

Bill - Outstanding, as always.

With regard to your last paragraph, I am compelled to say that we need to work and pray hard that our President will make the right decisions, and not be intimidated by the obstructionist left. We won the election – we should be allowed to get our choices!
