Evolutionists tell us that social and cultural institutions "evolved" in order to promote the success of our species and its continued existence. Those institutions included religion, cultural norms, sexual taboos, manners, and other behaviors that support restraint of our "animal nature". If that is the case and many of our mores have continued with some variation for thousands of years, then what should we say bout those who seek to remove these social institutions and behavior norms? Aren't they logically committing an anti-evolutionary act? Aren't they reducing the ability of our species to survive - or to evolve higher? Aren't they supporting devolutionary behavior? Who's right? Social "progressives" or evolutionists?

Not to put too fine a point on it, but, "Yes." Progressives hate humanity. They'll never tell you that, because then they would never dupe people into doing the horrifying things they do, but consider:

Progressives support killing un-born children.

Progressives support killing the elderly and infirm.

Progressives both support same-sex relationships AND oppose normal relationships. (It was progressives who invented "no fault" divorce).

Progressives not only support contraception, but encourage taxpayer funding for it.

Progressives believe in theories like "the Population Bomb."...

Green progressives put more effort into the health of "the Planet" than they do in human health.

Progressives enthusiastically support government-run medical care despite (because of?) the fact that government care will stifle innovation and improvement in care.

Progressives insist that AIDS patients be allowed to hide their condition even from people who may risk infection.

"Progressives insist that AIDS patients be allowed to hide their condition even from people who may risk infection."

What is the supposed logic behind that one, anyway? "Right to privacy" or something?

Neither, since both will bend the rules in whatever way their convenience dictates, even to the point of contradicting themselves.
In comments made before the presidential debate this past Tuesday, Chris Matthews claimed that Gov. Romney’s position on abortion was “almost like Sharia,” stating, “You’re saying to the country, we’re going to operate under a religious theory, under a religious belief.” In doing so, Matthews repeated the common leftwing libel that conservative moral principles with a basis in religious beliefs are equivalent to radical Islam.

In May, Rev. Billy Graham took out full page ads in North Carolina newspapers stating in part, “The Bible is clear — God’s definition of marriage is between a man and a woman. I want to...
