The Perfect Example of Liberty Run Amuck

Last week I posted an article titled "Freedom, Liberty, What's the Difference."  Friday, I read a piece on The Catholic Thing titled, The Left (prematurely) Freaks Out, which drives home even more clearly the point I tried to make.  

 In my own essay I stuck to the topic of religious liberty and how that is dangerous.  David Carlin in his article
carries it to the liberal, liberty loving political left, a.k.a. the Democrat Party and points out where that love of liberty leads us.  He writes:

“ These truly radical leftists are, of course, almost all atheists, for if God exists – a God who is in some way the author of moral laws – humans will not be truly free (as they understand freedom).  To be truly free or morally “autonomous” (to use a word that is favored by leftists), we must be free to “create our own morality.”

 I encourage you to click on the link above and read his entire article.  He uses the case of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to make his point.  When clearly Judge Kavanaugh is an intelligent well educated, kind and generous person, what is it about him that could have the left literally boiling over with rage?  They worship liberty---the liberty to construct their own moral code, the liberty to reject God, the liberty to embrace human passion, and the liberty to kill.
