I share your disgust for this article and this author and her pathetic attitude. Wright is a disgrace to womanhood, to the blacks, and to the conservatives especially. She is actually offered up here as being those three things (and even if they are so) she is no great representative of any of them. As you correctly summarized, at BEST, this article is a mere distraction, totally less than zero in being helpful. But then again, we are referring to Ms. Crystal Wright.
I personally believe that a much better title for this piece by Crystal Wright would have been: "Woman Townhall Columnist stands by stripper Beyonce". Readers need to know, each time they waste their precious free time and loose more precious brain cells by reading this morally bereft - yet always absolutely sure about everything - author (I have a long memory and will NEVER let them forget) that she once insisted with a straight face, right here on these pages, that the stripper/singer Beyonce is a great role model for young American girls. To my knowledge, Wright has never publicly distanced herself from her offensive, vile, anddestructive position. Questions, readers: If you had young girls in your home, would you trust the views of a person who could not even correctly morally discern if Beyonce should be a role model for your daughters? If you ran a conservative site, would you offer a platform to this sick woman author to spill her bile here, a person who with a straight face, fancies herself a "conservative" writer? Would you at least ask her continued opinion on this matter before allowing her to keep wiriting here? If you were a reader at a conservative site, would you accept the opinions on any matter, or use your good time reading someone this profoundly and offensively confused? If she could not get this ONE clear, simple moral matter correct, could you respect any of her views on other topics? Townhall and Crystal Wright, over to you.
Once in a blue moon we see a tiny ray of light, a small victory for common sense and the rule of law. This is one of those small reasons for hope that the Senate has not completely lost its way.
Actually you DID, my friend. You said, using part of a Hawkins' sentence, that abortion was "the real sickness at the heart of American culture". It is not. Don't want to continue this exchange, because it looks like you don't want to, or can't see, the difference between a symptom of a problem and a problem. If that's so, I'm wasting both of our time. Anyway, we certainly agree on the immorality of abortion (and on most other things) so I'm done here. As usual, stimulating exchange. Thanks, brother.
Herald, you "hurt" my feelings with this post. I didn't consider it "nice" to the rest of us readers (sarcasm: off). Yours was one of the prettiest, saddest, and most completely self-defeating, posts I have ever read at this site. You did not (and cannot) define your terms. Your small view of morality is not just ignorant and silly, but TOTALLY vague and absoltely unworkable. It is ANYTHING but "simple" and would complicate EVERYTHING. It sounded great, and will NEVER work. I hope that wasn't an "uncomfortable truth", because I was trying to be nice and not hurt anyone.
Every governmental authority legislates its version of morality, so your argument fails, Grant. Every law that has ever existed reflected someone's idea of morality. In fact, it is absolutely impossible to do othewise. The only remaining question is whose morality? Personally, I would prefer it be Christian morality to sharia. Christian ideals of right and wrong to Obama's bizarre, twisted version. Christian standards to the leftist's amoral position of legislating immorality. Choose one. Choose wisely.
Amen.
Oh, for an army of men with the guts, honor, moral bearings, and common sense of this man, Dr. Adams! We just might be able to turn this ship of state around. (No, I'm not holding my breath, but I can dream, can't I?) In the bleachers great, important piece. Keep giving it to us straight, sir. There are now so many limp-wristed leftys tripping over each other to give away the store first, at this once-respectable site, one has to wade through all their vile lies and destructive liberal progaganda to still find something of this quality at Townhall. This, TH TEAM, is what constitutes conservative discourse. Why is Adams increasingly rare here? Can you not find more like him?
Right, Americans are not tolerant enough. Good one, Mike. I needed a laugh in the midst of a very meaty, profound, serious topic. Keep up the resistance, man. What a great belly laugh I got from that post!
Again, this one sickening evil is not the CAUSE of our problems, Darby, it is the RESULT of our moral decadence. I am not disagreeing that the slaughter is at the top of the list, but agree with Hawkins that the list is of SYMPTOMS. He's writing about the real sickness at the heart of American culture. It's not abortion, as almost unspeakably horrid as it is that is at the core of our illness. I totally concur that if a people cannot even see it is evil to dismember an innocent human baby, they will not be able to get much else right. But abortion is only one of our moral failings. There's also not being able to discern that logically two men cannot "marry". That it's not wise not to have national borders. That it's not moral to borrow what you cannot repay. That it's not smart to reward laziness. And on and on. I so admire your unyielding stance for life. Please don't ever yield on it. But I wish you could put this one issue in its proper perspective. I wish you could understand that abortion is not the real sickness at the heart of our dying culture. It is, overall, "our newfound reluctance to address the moral health of our society", to quote the author. He is right and you either misundertood or don't see it. As usual, I find myself agreeing and disagreeing with you at the same time.
Amen.
