OK, to be perfectly fair, there are many odd things about the Left, but for the purpose of this post, allow me to focus on one, and only one. The Left has many sayings they repeat, and repeat, and repeat, and, well you get the idea, but one of their most grating is saying the “science is settled”. When they throw that out they are referring to
global warming er climate change er global cooling, er, whatever they are calling it this week. They also have this quirky, and by quirky I mean obnoxious habit of saying that the Rights “hates science”. But, here is the thing, the odd thing about that, the Left completely ignores other science when it suits them. One example is how medical science has destroyed their argument that an abortion only gets rid of a “clump of cells”. Another example is, well, let me turn you over to Dr. RS McCain
Sex is about reproduction.
Now, before you Liberals start screaming about McCain being weird, and some “fundamentalist”, and how the Right hates sex, allow me to say that we, on the Right LOVE sex, and understand that sometime sex is just for fun, which reminds me I really need to find that hockey mask and fly swatter. Hell, some of us even use different forms of birth control, so no, no, and no again, we do not hate sex! Conservatives DO enjoy sex, yes even with hot Liberal women, ladies you can send your pics and resume to my email, sorry, no Feminists need apply. Now back to Dr. McCain’s lecture
This is the natural function of sex, biologically speaking, and it’s odd how the same liberal fanatics who enjoy endlessly lecturing us about Darwinism and global warming — “The science is settled!” — are so unscientific about sex. Instead, the sexual enthusiasms of liberals tend toward sterile non-procreative acts, while they react with horror at the idea that someone might engage in the normal act of reproduction with the expected result. If they can’t prevent pregnancy, liberals want to kill the resulting baby, apparently believing that motherhood itself is a weapon of patriarchal oppression.
This mentality is what I call “The Contraceptive Culture.” I’ve written about the subject occasionally for years (see “The Pill at 50: Unhappy Un-Birthday,” May 8, 2010) and my emphatic pro-life stance has sometimes led to readers mistaking me for Catholic.
Proudly Protestant, I nevertheless recognize that the encyclical Humane Vitae identified the fundamental problem with artificial contraception: It separates functions that naturally belong together. Whereas love, sex, marriage and parenthood are normally part of the same bundle, The Contraceptive Culture divides them up in a decidedly abnormal way, and once this strange way of thinking takes hold, it becomes difficult for people to understand what’s wrong with it.
My wife and I have six children, so we’ve heard all the anti-”breeder” jokes that are common to The Contraceptive Culture. Sometimes, however, you encounter truly hateful expressions of the anti-natal mindset, as when someone posted a photo of the Duggar family’s appearance at a Ken Cuccinelli gubernatorial campaign event in Virginia:
Head over to The Other McCain to read the nasty Tweets the nasty Leftists wrote about the Duggars, here is just one example
