The leading liberals in America gave frightening clear evidence this week, that not only do they lack the wisdom to run the nation, but that by their own words they do not even understand the priorities of good parenting. The position of "parent" is God granted, yet they shirk with great disdain the desire to give their children the basic wisdom of life. In doing so they demonstrate clearly that they are contributing to one of our nation's greatest deficits - the discernment and critical thinking skills of the next generation.
In the New Hampshire Democratic debate this week, the veil was pulled back on more than just the Democratic party's great lie about their desire to bring the troops home in the global war on terror (none would even commit to doing it before the end of their first term) but perhaps more importantly their twisted views on family, sex, and parental responsibility were also highlighted.
Tim Russert asked the three front-runners for the Democratic nomination as to their comfort level of teaching a homosexual story of two boys consummating their lust for each other to children in the second grade. They all agreed they would support the teaching of such behavior, though they attempted to hem, haw, and confuse the issue mumbling about parents' involvement.
John Edwards: "Yes absolutely..." (He would support the teaching of the story to second graders.) "I want my children to understand everything about the difficulties that gay and lesbian couples are faced with every day, the discrimination that they’re faced with every single day of their lives."
Hillary Clinton: "Obviously, it is better to try to … help your children understand the many differences that are in the world. … And that goes far beyond sexual orientation. So I think that this issue of gays and lesbians and their rights will remain an important one in our country."
Barack Obama: "The fact is, my 9-year-old and my 6-year-old I think are already aware that there are same-sex couples... One of the things I want to communicate to my children is not to be afraid of people who are different. …. One of the things I think the next president has to do is stop fanning people’s fears. If we spend all our time feeding the American people fear and conflict and division, then they become fearful and conflicted and divided."
