In Post-Modern American Politics, Every Correct Child is a Gift

In Post-Modern American Politics, Every Correct Child is a Gift September 18, 2014

The Faith tells us every child is a gift and we can find a way to make room for them at the table of life, if we are willing.  No qualifications on that whatsoever.

The Thing that Used to be Liberalism says every *wanted* child is a gift and every unwanted child is a burden that should be killed.

The Thing that Used to be Conservatism seems to say different, but then cries “We must hurl back the invading army of disease-bearing terrorist children or we will be swamped and our economy destroyed!” It is one of the more curious disconnects of the anti-abortion-but-not-prolife wing of conservatism.

How good and pleasant it is when the Things that Used to be Liberalism and Conservatism Dwell Together in Unity.
