Suppose you were trying to decide whom to vote for in a Senatorial election. You had already ruled out one candidate, but were considering the other who was great on economic issues. Only one problem -- he is a white supremacist who believes in segregation. Do you think you'd vote for him? Heck no! Everyone repudiates that position (which is the politically correct position to take).
Now lets take a look at Scott Brown. All the conservative talk show pundits have jumped on his bandwagon. The excitement level on Laura Ingraham's show is sky high over polls showing him ahead of Martha Coakley. Sean Hannity is on the Brown soapbox. I haven't listened much to Rush, but I expect he's singing Brown's praises too. Brown is the tea party movement's candidate as well and they are calling for money, money, money to get him elected.
If I lived in Massachusetts I would not vote for Scott Brown. Why? Because he favors killing unborn children. You can read about his position here. All I had to see was that he thinks abortion should always be legally available and he went straight into the "disqualified" column. Some, who would object to my being a "purist," ("Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good.") are the same folks who would disqualify outright a white supremicist. Is being a bigot less serious than supporting the murder of the innocent? I don't think so.
The local pro-life group has endorsed Brown as a "pro-life" vote. Which simply illustrates that the pro-life movement is so corrupted at this point it's hard to understand what many groups actually stand for. Is it really okay to support killing the innocent victims of rapists? What does that say about the survivors? Their lives are completely demeaned by the exceptions legislation.
What if I said I'm opposed to murdering people except obnoxious teenagers who smash mailboxes? Would you call me pro-life?
Some call Brown's position "highly nuanced," but regulating the circumstances under which you ALLOW the murder of children is like regulating the circumstances under which you allow killing blacks, or jews, or any other class of persons. IT IS IMMORAL IN THE EXTREME.
As a pro-life Catholic I'm no longer willing to support those who advocate crimes against humanity even if they are "less evil" than their opponents and would regulate "some" abortions.
Scott Brown is not pro-life and calling him pro-life illustrates the corruption of language in our culture.
