Quoting Quiverfull: Social, Political & Culture War?

Quoting Quiverfull: Social, Political & Culture War? March 28, 2013

From Gary Bauer of American Values and the Family Research Council

“We are engaged in a social, political, and cultural war. There’s a lot of talk in America about pluralism. But the bottom line is somebody’s values will prevail. And the winner gets the right to teach our children what to believe.”

  • Pluralism: “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

    I think Fred Clark over at Slacktivist has blogged about this kind of thing before…that the Religious Right honestly does not believe pluralism is possible. They think it’s something everyone plays lip service to while scrambling in the background to make sure THEIR values and THEIR religion end up dictating everyone else’s lives.

    The notion that people of different religions and values could actually exist together without one trying to stomp out the other is utterly foreign to them.
