Very interesting thoughts posted here.
Someone once said that we (this site) could not have a thread that included discussion on politics or religion without a bomb going off. This thread contains both and we all do not agree with each other ( i am sure that some do not agree with my thoughts) but the thread is civil. Pretty Cool.
ArcticMerc, your thoughts are interesting. I do not disagree, but I look at the bashing from a different angle then you and therefore see the left as the bashers. In my mind, religious conservatives have been silent until the Tea Party come along. I see the bashers as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and many like them. Maybe, depending on the side of the fence we sit on, we only hear what we want?
The original point of this thread was to discuss the fact that a minority in this country continue to push for what they think is correct. Our government tries to be secular and continues to allow American values to errode under pressure. English is becoming a second language, we pay taxes to give benefits to non American citizens, and we simply pay millions to not work and do nothing. While all this is going on we find that it is now politically incorrect to even speak about much of this. If one states that they think we need to solve inner city crimes, you are called a racist. If you do not agree with a relationship between two of the same sex, you are a gay basher.
