The cultural planks in the Democratic platform, as worm-infested as they are, don’t seem to “play in Peoria.” The attention conservatives pay to the failure of Democrat efforts to create jobs, as well as to their rampant spending sprees, almost completely eclipse the cultural excesses sponsored, encouraged, and funded by the Democrats. Let’s put some of them in focus:

On Contraception:

If, before, or following the act of sexual intercourse, Jane, or Bill, chooses to prevent natural conception by using artificial instruments to defeat the natural procreative purpose of that intercourse, while retaining the pleasure of copulation…

…..it is the duty of uninvolved taxpayers to foot the cost of the instruments of such prevention.

The government has spoken! Are you listening?

On Abortion

If Sally, after sexual intercourse, conceives a child (identified as a zygote, embryo or fetus – depending on its age), the child’s birth is intentionally prevented by killing him or her while he or she still inhabits the womb – for reasons solely determined by those who are party to the act of killing…….

…..it is the duty of uninvolved taxpayers to foot the cost of the abortion.

The government has spoken! Are you listening? 

If, in either of the cases cited above, the costs of the subsidies granted are levied on third parties despite their consciences and/or religious beliefs forbidding such support – whether monetary or otherwise …….

……it becomes the duty of the unhappy parties to knuckle under, accept the levies prescribed – and thereby implicitly endorse the very principles they abhor.

The government has spoken! Are you listening?

What’s Next?

Looking ahead to what lurks around the corner – the logical successor to contraception and abortion is infanticide. The practice is an old one but has been eschewed in most places in more modern times. Yet, could we be headed toward the day it will return in force, perhaps sanctioned under the moral callousness cultivated by acceptance of its anti-life predecessors?  Is the camel’s nose under the tent flap? Consider Barack Obama’s opposition to the Illinois State Senate bills in 2001, 2002, and 2003 that would have mandated that a child born alive as a result of a botched abortion be given medical aid.

…. Is intentionally letting a fully formed and birthed infant die – anything but infanticide?

The government has spoken! Are you listening? 

On Homosexual Behavior and Same-Sex Marriage

Homosexual behavior consists of physical intercourse between two of the same sex; the act is, by definition, incapable of accomplishing the first purpose of sexual intercourse – i.e., reproduction. The behavior is prompted by what some believe is a disorder, psychological or otherwise, characterized by a deep-seated same-sex attraction. The disorder itself holds no stigma, but the sexual behavior it stimulates has serious anti-social implications.

Despite a human tradition thousands of years old, despite the deep religious convictions of millions of fellow countrymen and women, and despite obvious deviation from natural biological norms, Dick and Ed and Pam and Phyllis, representatives of a disordered minority (but nonetheless fully vested citizens), demand full recognition and acceptance of their sexual lifestyle, i.e., homosexuality.  They claim it is “only fair.”
