Remember back when Greta used to do the atheist meme of the day? I’m not sure I have the creativity to revive it, but stuff like this from my dad makes me think about it.
This is how the right debases political and moral debates in this country. Liberals says, “We want to keep violent criminals from buying guns” and a conservative will claim we said, “Ban all guns.” Liberals say, “We want everyone to have access to healthcare” and a conservative will claim we said, “Kill the sick and elderly.” Liberals say, “America is open to all religions, not just Christianity” and a conservative will claim we said, “Ban Christianity and the Bible.”
In their defense, they have to chase phantoms. The phantoms they create are just as unreasonable as they are, and so it evens the playing field.
Whoops! Dad’s status came from an addictinginfo article and I missed it. Will dig it up here in a few and link to it.
