OpEd: Yes, There is a Moral Crisis in America
« on: March 28, 2012, 02:33:11 pm »
From an OpEd piece in The Washington Post:

Quote
So yes, Rick Santorum. Yes, Mitt Romney. Yes, Paul Ryan and  Republican politicians all over this nation. You are right, as right as  you’ve ever been. There is a moral crisis in this country. A  horrifyingly, back-breaking, bankrupt-the-core-of-this-nation style  crisis. But it isn’t women or the poor or the middle class or the gay  community or health-care advocates or environmentalists that are causing  it.


It’s you.

Yup.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

That's the biggest problem with Liberal policies and thought.  They are based on moral principles but the conservatives have stolen the idea of 'morality' to mean what they want.

Any time I hear someone ranting about morality, I am sure they are trying to convince people that their immoral position is actually moral.
