Frenetic Friday, Some fun-and adventure at last!
Again bonus points if you name the film the quote came from.
On a less flippant note the forty-second anniversary of Roe v. Wade has come as of January 12th the American holocaust since 1973 is:
To give some perspective 416,800 Americans were killed in World War 2, 36,516 in the Korean war,
58,209 in the war in Vietnam, and 625,000 in the Civil War. That gives you a grand total from those wars of 1,136,525 That is basically one fiftieth of the amount of babies killed. And the number keeps going up.
Erotic liberty as far as I can discern was coined by Albert Mohler, the definition of erotic liberty is: a liberty claimed on the basis of sexual identity and activity. This of course was unknown when the founders of the nation drafted the bill of rights, when they talked about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Sexual identity and activity was the farthest thing from their minds. One thing that wasn’t far from their minds was freedom of religion. Now what was meant by that? Well it is more than ” in their pews, homes and hearts” that columnist Frank Bruni said in his opinion piece on January tenth called “Your God and My Dignity” In fact an excellent examination of what the establishment clause means can be found here. The Founders saw religion being more than just “pew, heart, and home” but rather something that enjoyed it’s place in the public square. But with each win of erotic liberty over religious liberty we are driven back out of the public square and into those spaces that have been designated for us. One must wonder though if the proponents of erotic liberty get to define where religious liberty can occur, how soon will they decide that even those places are too much? What happens when one can’t even have pew, heart, and home?
Good night and God bless.
