‘Mind Your Own Beeswax!’: How
Social Conservatives Can Win By Losing

PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/29/2012 4:39:57 AM

Hypocrisy is rife in American politics, particularly on the Left. We are by now used to the likes of Oliver Stone and Sean Penn — who themselves live, quite literally, like Medici princes — spewing endless neo-Marxist drivel like sophomores at a four a.m. reefer klatsch. (Snip)But the Right is guilty of its own kind of hypocrisy. It’s interesting how some of those who most vociferously object to government interference in our economic affairs are most desirous of government interference in our personal ones. I’m referring of course to social conservatives,

Comment by Darcy after the article sums it up nicely:

"Social conservatives are the moral and religious people who present the only obstacle to the Constitution’s complete dismantling by radical egalitarians. And for that we are rebuked, chastised, and shunned. In our place, libertarians, leftists, right-liberals, and you name it, have determined that a new order must emerge, an order that worships the individual and his desires above everything.

And we’re supposed to mind our own business? Really? You social progressives are the interlopers, not us. And what I’ll never understand is how anyone can make a rational argument for homosexual unions when to do so flies in the face of Darwin’s survival of the fittest. Such unions cannot even make it to the next generation.

It would seem that we would be derelict to adopt your MYOB advice."

I find it particularly strange that Roger would use the word ´´fecund´´ when referring to ´´same sex´´ anything.

Nominate for a must read. I think this conversation is going to be very interesting, here on L.com.

I abhor abortion. Our govt is beyond hypocritical when it comes to laws protecting the eggs of endangered birds, say, and protecting the life of the unborn human. But I also believe that the abortion argument in and of itself has become incredibly polarizing, to the point that those who support abortion rights do so purely on the legal points. They are so caught up in the vitriol that they don´t see the real issue.

I have taken the position when asked that I will not primarily argue the religious side anymore, or whether it should be legal. I state that I am pro life. I argue the hypocrisy of protecting one unborn species over another. I ask why we protect those birds´ eggs? It´s just an egg, why protect it. It inevitably leads to a deeper discussion. I´ve stopped worrying about whether I´ve convinced them. Instead, I want to make them think.

He wants social conservatives to leave the ´divisive´ issues at home. You know what? We´re not the ones bringing the issue up! Did he not see the abortionpalooza that was the DNC convention? It was all abortion, all the time. Libs told us for years to get out of the bedrooms of homosexuals, but the homosexuals won´t leave us alone. Now I have to be tolerant of everything they do.

Lib journOlists are the ones who only ask conservative candidates about abortion. When did a lib journOlister ask Obama about voting 4 times in favor of infanticide?

Simon is naive if he thinks this will go away if we just sit down and shut up.

I really couldn´t care less about the gay marriage issue except for one point. With gay marriage legal, we will be prohibited from telling children that gay marriage and traditional marriage are not equivalent.

The PC police will be out in full force ready to penalize teachers, doctors, coaches, and any other community members that dare to differentiate the two.

I agree with the author´s principal argument that moral issues should be outside the purview of government. The whole ´Pro-life/Pro-choice´ issue is a glaring example. ´Pro-choice´ isn´t about ´choice´ at all; it´s about abortion on demand, without remorse. But ´Pro-life´ isn´t about ´life´ either; it´s about government interference in personal moral issues. Forcing someone by the force of law to make the ´right´ choice does nothing to uplift their morality.

When I was growing up, it was considered to be a shame to talk about abortion, a shame to be pregnant out of wedlock, a shame to be ´knocked up´, a shame to be shacked up. It was a moral horror to be involved with homosexuality in any way. Perhaps we need to make our arguments in the realm of religion and morality, rather than by governmental edict.

But don´t you see? We Republicans have earned the frowning face of disapproval the Dems and media successfully charged to us. We don´t like Hispanics(legal or not), gays, divorce, even minimal abortion laws, anyone collecting food stamps or borrowing money for student loans, the long-term unemployed and on and on and on.

We must change the way we are perceived by the average voter. There are lots of people who have to (or believe they might in the future) get some help from somebody (feds, state, parents) at some time in their lives. We frighten those people by giving them the impression we would take all that help away. And we anger them by patronizing them.

Why can´t we stick to the original intent of the tea party movement, reducing the size of government and national fiscal responsibility?

All laws reflect morality, the question is who´s? The laws of a society are both a reflection of the people, and standards to guide their actions. Unfortunately, many people today believe, "If its legal, it must be moral."

Without the moral underpinning of a religious society we have devolved into the situation we now face. How long will individual liberties last without acknowledging that it is God who bestows those rights? How long can a just nation survive without the most basic of God´s precepts being missing from its canon of law?

As to the abortion issue: Today the majority in the Pro-Life movement understands that Roe v. Wade will never be overturned, nor do they advocate such a position. That is only how the Left defines us. We accept that legal abortion is the law of the land, but we do not accept that our tax dollars should fund murder. We also advocate and support the life choice for pregnant women through over 3,000 Life clinics in the country. We pray and work that, although abortion remains "legal", it is no longer the default "choice" of the mothers AND the fathers. We can end abortion in America without making it illegal.

Darwinian success is boiled down to one simple concept... passing on your own genes to as many offspring as possible. With that in mind, I say, go ahead libs, kill your children. Hook up with your own gender so that you´ll never procreate.

Maybe there ARE too many people, so whose children should we allow to be eliminated or prevented? People who guide, nurture, and protect their kids, or child-abandoning, abusive, egoistic parasites who have no sense of responsibility?

Abortion and gay marriage not not just religious issues. If they were, wouldn´t gay marriage be legal in countries like China? And secular Europe has far more restrictive abortion laws than the US. Atheists and non-religious people claim to still have moral principles. What is the moral principle that would allow someone to abort a fetus because it will have Down Syndrome or some other genetic defect? Or because it is female? How is it moral to have an abortion at 8.5 months into the pregnancy when it is immoral--and criminal--to kill at baby at the moment of birth? And who is imposing their views on whom? Roe v. Wade makes it impossible for the moral issues even to be debated, since state are forbidden from restricting abortions.

For conservatives, the story of the Obama years has been the depressing spectacle of Republicans fighting a rearguard action covering their retreat from a Democratic agenda backed by superior numbers. Republicans began the Obama administration with effectively no leverage: Barack Obama in the White House, Nancy Pelosi in the speaker’s chair, and Harry Reid running the Senate. The outcome of that was the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, the worst domestic defeat for the cause of limited government in a generation. The 2010 congressional elections gave Republicans some relief in the form of a House majority empowered to contain

Senate Democrats struggle to define

Democrats are going into the 2014 midterm elections with their control of the Senate greatly imperiled and with the prospect of an Obama presidency completely hobbled in its final two years. In response, the president and his party are struggling to come up with a broad economic message that can rebut, or at least deflect, the continued GOP assaults on the president and his new health-care law. Thus far, what they have produced is a smaller, more targeted approach — one that seeks to gin up the enthusiasm that has been lacking in key parts of their base, but that

Last month, Allahpundit touched on the rather gruesome story of a Copenhagen zoo which shot Maurice the giraffe in the head and fed him to some lions. In closing, he asked what may have turned out to be a somewhat prophetic question. How much of an uproar would there have been if Marius had belonged to a more aggressive, less cuddly species? Probably no death threats if he was Marius the alligator, I assume. Well, AP, it looks like we may have at least a partial answer to that query.

6 Big Unanswered Questions
About Obamacare

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Oral arguments at the Supreme Court on Tuesday in the Conestoga Wood Specialties and Hobby Lobby case showed bureaucrats and special interest groups led by the abortion lobby are willing to coerce you to participate in anything they say is a “right,” especially abortion. The government´s view is so extreme that Justice Anthony Kennedy was inspired to ask whether the government´s theory means a business “could be forced in principle to pay for abortions,” and that families in business “just don´t have any standing to vindicate [their] religious rights.” “You’re right,” declared U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli.

While we’ll never know exactly how the phone call went, if you read how the Obama administration described the conversation between Putin and Obama, and how the Russians described it, you’d think they were two completely different phone calls. Here’s the readout from the Obama admin: President Obama underscored to President Putin that the United States continues to support a diplomatic path in close consultation with the Government of Ukraine and in support of the Ukrainian people with the aim of de-escalation of the crisis. President Obama made clear that this remains possible only if Russia pulls back its troops and does

Fast cars, luxury yachts, international five-star resorts, top-shelf liquor and fine china from Bloomingdale’s — this sounds like a rap song, but this is the life of some members of Congress. For example, Rep. Rob Andrews (D-NJ) was exposed in a 60 Minutes investigation for spending leadership PAC money on the items listed above. And, my guess: he isn’t alone. We, the taxpayers, shouldn’t accept this behavior; we must fight it.

Melowese Richardson is the poster girl for vote fraud.

This might be below Chicago graveyard standards, but it’s still impressive. Ms. Richardson has become a heroine to the left, which is working with its legal arm — the U.S. Justice Department — to kill voter photo-ID laws in order to ensure that creative

The Spartans needed only 300 men to hold off tens of thousands of Persians and their allies at Thermopylae. To chitchat with his fellow democratic leaders of the G-7 this week in Europe, Barack Obama required 900, including a small air force and private army. Given how very little is accomplished at any of these diplomatic gatherings (and in particular this one, which came up with a most mealy-mouthed denunciation of Russia’s invasion of Crimea), the fact that our still-global celebrity president feels the need for an entourage befitting an Ottoman Sultan is a perfect example of government decadence in

Attn: Kosher butchers. You know that contraceptive mandate now before the Supreme Court? Turns out it may affect your freedom to keep kashrut — not to mention your living. At least, that is the opinion of the solicitor general of the United States, Donald Verrilli. He’s arguing the case for the Obama administration. And the claim is that for-profit corporations such as Hobby Lobby have no right to make free-exercise claims under the First Amendment. Justice Samuel Alito raised the issue of kosher and halal slaughterhouses during the oral arguments. It hasn’t generated much press attention, but it made for a fascinating exchange.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript.

With high school seniors and their families now deciding where to enroll for college next fall, they might want to take a gander at research showing the best -- and worst -- values for a degree. The shocker in a survey by PayScale, a research firm that focuses on compensation, is that there are schools where students would have been better off not attending. Why? The 20-year net return on their college investment amounts to a financial loss, even when financial aid is included. Taking the time to get and spend money on a degree, in short, means you might actually find yourself in a financial hole. The survey may add to parents' doubts about

When atheist director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky promised that his epic "Noah" would be "the least biblical film ever made," that was not hyperbole. "Noah" is a brilliant, compelling, beautifully-mounted, beautifully-acted piece of storytelling conceived for the sinister purpose of leading people to believe that Christianity and Judaism are something they are not. (Snip) What does matter, though, is The Message. The Message is everything. And this is where Aronofsky is the snake in the garden. Using a $135 million, he and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.
