I just put on the TV for just a few moments at the top of the hour, to find out how the left is reacting to the Supreme Court\’s “Hobby Lobby decision”. So, of course I tuned to (where else?) MSNBC.
In those few moments, I caught Terry O\’Neill, current President of the National Organization for Women (NOW) telling us some things are so heinous that they transcend religious freedom. Her three examples? Apartheid, slavery….and the Hobby Lobby decision.
Yep, you got it. In the world of O\’Neill, thus NOW, a government which defines one entire population segment as legally inferior/subservient to another, and a system in which human beings are nothing more than property, are equivalent to women being fully free to use any contraceptives they want, but having to pay out-of-pocket for a few varieties of them.
That is like equating Mount Everest to a speed bump.
Am I surprised by the hysteria of this equivalency? Well, it was the President of NOW, and it was said on MSNBC. So why would I?
I can\’t wait to hear some of the other hard-leftists take a shot at this decision…..and fully expect at least a few of them to outdo Ms. O\’Neill.
Would you be surprised if we hear a reference to naziism before the day is out? I know I won\’t be.
