Re: Abortion Politics 101
From NRO, where there is more:
For more than 40 years, the pro-life community has been plagued with the argument that we care more for kids before they’re born than after. This argument has always been manifestly, provably false. With our money and our time, Christians give far, far more to poor families at home and abroad than they ever give to fight the culture war. As I’ve noted before, the budget of just one Christian relief agency, Samaritan’s Purse, is larger than the budget of every major Christian culture war organization combined. Yet Franklin Graham, the founder of Samaritan’s Purse, is one of the Left’s great bogeymen.
On an individual level, even Christian families that adopt — especially those who adopt across racial lines — can face scorn (and not from white rednecks). My wife and I learned that first-hand when she made the mistake of granting a short (and she thought light-hearted) interview with a Huffington Post reporter at last year’s CPAC. Many of the comments — predictably — were simply appalling. And those comments haven’t stopped, with Facebook and other messages telling her that she simply can’t and shouldn’t parent our own daughter. This is hardly a new phenomenon. In 1994, the National Association of Black Social Workers even called transracial adoption “cultural genocide.”
It took me a long time to realize the following truth: No matter how compassionate, charitable, winsome, and kind you are, if you oppose the sexual revolution you are the enemy. And in many ways, you’re not merely the political “enemy,” you’re also a reprehensible human being. Ann Coulter was on to something when she said on Red Eye that modern culture (and our president, apparently) can forgive Korean pop sensation Psy for rapping his hopes that American soldiers (and their families) die painful deaths, but had he rapped against gay marriage he would never be forgiven.
