Critical Pseudo-Conservative Bloggers That Do Nothing Else
Reflections on Some Critical Bloggers
There are a few conservative bloggers(at least they claim such membership) that manage to criticize the rest of us conservatives for the slightest infraction of what they consider to be the political rules of behavior. They pick on Tea Party members, they complain about litmus tests, and they bitterly complain about the general movement rightwards and the closing of the rightist mind to their vocal and written super-moderation in all things.
Of course, these critics do not like the idea of a "right to life" platform, perhaps because they are atheists, and reject the idea that a person is created at conception. Since this is a solid Christian belief, and is clearly called out in the Bible, probably 80% of the electorate signs up to this belief, which makes the complainers look to be crying in the wind.
Then they also take those that believe in Natural Law and Natural Rights to task for being quaint and so 1950's in these critic's modernistic thinking, along with their stance that the Constitution is outdated and needs revision to suit their "more appropriate and nuanced ideas". A close reading of the Constitution reveals that it is quite largely based upon Natural Law and Rights, which is in turn based upon the Word of God in the Bible, especially the Decalogue. It isn't the Constitution that needs fixing, it is the moral degeneracy in our people that needs massive correction, along with the destructive concepts of moral relativism that many adhere to today and attempt to put into law.
When asked, however, to set forth their ideas of how things should be, they do not speak, they do not write on their ideas for improvement; but merely complain all the more that the conservative movement is in the hands of Bible Thumpers and Gun Clutchers. Doesn't it turn out that our 80% Christian citizenship do hold the Bible to be sacred, and hence they are being castigated for their religious beliefs? Doesn't it also turn out that Natural Law requires men to protect and defend themselves and their families, and to provide for their welfare, and thus to own and use guns as needed for that purpose? Doesn't the Constitution declare this to be a right?
You will find these empty critics in many places on the web. I will not name names, but be aware of them as you surf the sometimes so-called conservative, and often atheistic, blogs that are actually driving down the white line in the middle of the road, and refusing to make way for oncoming traffic.
