I'm Glad Mary and Joseph Were Not Pro ChoiceSomething is really the matter with your political philosophy when your child needs parental permission to take a field trip, but you do not think she needs your permission for her unborn child to be murdered by an abortionist. From a Chattanooga Times-Free Press story on redistricting and Republicans gaining more seats in the Tennessee General Assembly:
Ms. [Robin] Smith said those new majorities will help Republicans push through legislation that previously had failed. As an example, she cited a bill that would require parental consent for a teenage girl to get an abortion.
“I want it to be more difficult for my daughter to get an abortion than it is for her to get her ears pierced at Northgate Mall,” she said.
Mr. Sasser said that comment indicated a “radical right-wing agenda” for Republicans.
Radical agenda? Really Gray?
It is "radical" to require parental consent before an abortion, but the national Democratic Party favors even partial-birth abortion-that's not radical?
It is not radical to say that marriage should be anything other than between a man and a woman, as it has been accepted in Western civilization for nearly 2,000 years?
Apparently, it is not the least bit radical to say that reckless sexual and social behavior is to be accepted, even promoted and encouraged in some cases-and it is in no way radical to redefine the very concept of the nuclear family itself.
Of course, this is Tennessee and there are many Democrats in our state who don't think this way about social issues, but for over 40 years, many activist liberal Democrats have championed the causes aforementioned, and what they have wanted was a radical restructuring of our society and ultimately of what was once called Christian civilization itself. The Left has been successful enough at doing this that the heinous is now often seen to be accepted as normal, the grossly obscene is now widely circulated on the airwaves, and abortion is so widely practiced that there are over 4,000 of them a day in this country.
Whose agenda is radical?
On November 4th, Tennessee voters sent a clear message that if the rest of the country wants to adopt the social agenda of the radical Left and call it normal, we don't want that here in Tennessee. The most liberal of our friends in the party opposite have now succeeded in getting the most extreme believer in their worldview elected President of the United States-and so now traditionalists are "radical."
I'm just glad there was no Planned Parenthood in the time of Christ...
