The Left Just Doesn’t Get Religion

Abortion has gone from an unfortunate necessity to a positive (eugenic, I suppose) good for the Left:

So while I respect Palin’s decision to raise Trig, that’s all the respect she will get from me. I don’t see eye-to-eye with her on anything else: energy, guns, sex education and of course a woman’s right to choose. Her supporters say that Trig signals that she practices what she preaches. Her decision to make her own choice but not grant it to others is a sign of her hypocrisy.

And on a related note, catch this, from Charlie Gibson’s big ABC interview (transcript excerpts here) with Sarah Palin:

GIBSON: You said recently, in your old church, “Our national leaders are sending U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God.” Are we fighting a holy war?

PALIN: You know, I don’t know if that was my exact quote.

GIBSON: Exact words.

Well, they were and they weren’t. GetReligion notes that Gibson left out a key “introductory clause that completely changed the meaning of the statement.”

Here are the exact words. Palin asked the congregation to

“pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending [U.S. soldiers] out on a task that is from God. That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God’s plan.”
