''Rush'' to Judgement
Read the Story from Media Matters: Limbaugh on the "religious character" of liberalism: "[T]he whole point of it is to make you feel better about yourself as you accomplish nothing"
Now I know many people are going to attack Rush for says such a blindingly stupid thing. Normally, I would be one of them, but I think we have to look into the mirror before we lash back.
For as long as I can remember (i'm 27), Liberals have not stood for much of anything. Look at the WTO protests... What is their position? What is the arguement they have against the WTO? Well... I didn't ask your opinion, I asked you to explain theirs.
Name six conservative Christian leaders: Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, James Dobson, D James Kennedy, John Ankerberg, Hal Linsey. Okay... these people are on TV all the time.
Now, name six liberal Christian leaders... Well, I'm waiting... John Shelby Spong, Robert Funk, Markus Borg, Matthew Fox, John Dominic Crossan, Elaine Pagels. Have you heard of them? When was the last time you saw them on TV?
Liberal Christians don't speak up as often as the Neo-cons! That is starting to change, but not soon enough. The best way to fight these statements is to stand up and let your voice be heard, not to complain about them.
If we are ever going to get rid of this reputation as weak, we have to be strong.
Liberal Unite! We have the numbers, we need to shout!
