Deliver ‘US’ from Liberals


Gregory J. Rummo

Last Monday, Secretary of State Colin Powell visited the graves of Kurds that were gassed by Saddam Hussein in 1988 while liberals were still pointing to the Bush administration’s inability to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

What is it that blinds these people to the obvious truth that Saddam Hussein and his henchmen were the bad guys, not George Bush, Dick Cheney and their buddies in the oil patch?

It is the inability to distinguish good from evil.

I get e-mails from these people all the time. They are a confused bunch. I asked one who accused Bush of being a liar—an accusation he insisted was proven—if he had voted for Clinton—found in contempt of court in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case for lying about his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. “Didn’t everyone?” he wrote back.

No, everyone did not vote for Clinton. In fact almost 6 out of 10 voted against Clinton in both elections. Both presidential races were three-way, the majority of the votes going to the other two candidates.

But why let the facts stand in the way of opinion?

Fuzzy-headedness over the distinction between right and wrong is rooted in a rejection of godly standards.

Most liberals reject true, life-changing faith in God. Heaven forbid it should ever become the lodestone guiding one’s moral compass. Even those that practice a religion and attend a church insist that their faith is something private, has no rightful place in forming public policy and therefore must never be mingled with matters of state.

So when it comes to the question of good vs. evil, they are naturally flummoxed.

Is it any wonder?

These are the same people who winced when President Bush used the phrase “axis of evil,” in his State of the Union to characterize Iraq, North Korea and any country that posed a terror threat to the United States.

These are the same people who are always talking about “the children,” yet they believe that a woman’s right to choose means it’s okay to end the life of an unborn child, for any reason or no reason. The consequence of that play on words has resulted in the deaths of over 40 million children in America but it’s the pro-life crowd that is made out to be the evil extremists.

These are the same people who clamor for condom distribution in the public schools while insisting it is perfectly acceptable for a school official to take your minor daughter to a clinic for an abortion without your consent. Those who point to the steady rise in sexually transmitted diseases and believe that young men and women should be taught abstinence are sneered at by the elitists.

These are the people who think they know better than you about how to spend your hard-earned money. So their vision of social change takes precedence over your vision of how you plan to provide for your family. They characterize the president’s tax cut as something evil and all who benefit from it as “the rich.”

These are the same people who hide behind specious filibusters in the senate, denying floor votes that would have confirmed several qualified Bush appointees to the judiciary. Miguel Estrada was the most recent casualty, disqualified because he dares to be a practicing Roman Catholic. Liberals just cannot stomach the thought of someone with spiritual convictions interpreting the Constitution.

These are the same people who send their children to private schools while denying school choice and vouchers to yours because long ago they sold their souls to a monopolistic union that symbiotically votes them into office again and again.

These are the same people who see nothing wrong supporting the legal equivalence of the union of two homosexuals with traditional marriage, the institution that has been the foundation for the family and hence, all of western civilization for several millennia. Anyone opposed is automatically branded a homophobe despite the fact that most are actually Theophobes.

The wise King Solomon recognized this problem thousands of years ago. I suppose he too dealt with liberals in his day. He explained that those who relied on their own brute intellect and found no place for God in their lives as a force to shape opinions and make judgments would forever wrestle with the concept of good vs. evil. He wrote: “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil,”—a huge challenge indeed to those who can’t even recognize evil when they see it.
