From Brent Bozell at Townhall (who should know better):
In a look back at the cultural winners and losers of the year, a big loser has to be Planned Parenthood, no matter how energetically the left in this country tries to paper over this organization’s ghoulish profiteering. Conversely, a big winner has to be the Center for Medical Progress, which released the 10 shocking videotapes that very effectively exposed the Gosnellian acquiescence at the highest levels of the abortion conglomerate.
Funny. I keep hearing Christians tsk tsking about how the Center had to go undercover to do it. The way people did who saved Jews from the Nazis.
And dammit, PP forced Christians to work harder to think up reasons for voting for abortion-friendly governments. Remember, Obama, the only Illinois legislator who would not sign a born-alive infants protection act, was elected Prez twice in a reputedly Christian country. Things are no better in Canada, where no Liberal could be pro-life—and they were just elected with a big majority. Onward euthanasia!
Planned Parenthood actually won the culture war because it is now clear that North Americans have chosen to accept dismembering live babies to sell their organs.
Most nominal Christians are looking for a way to sell out piously and safely, possibly sensing that they will also capitulate further down the road, when something comes up that they do care enough about. But with luck, they won’t be Christians any more, just people who can hum hymn tunes. Their children, from what I can see, mostly won’t even do that.
The Christians who ended the slave trade in early 19th century Britain were not like this, but that was a long time ago and far away, and everyone now thinks of them as the bad, uptight Victorians.
Also from Bozell:
Loser: ABC’s “Scandal,” for outrageously having their heroine get an abortion to the strains of “Silent Night” and then smile about it at the episode’s end to the strains of “Ave Maria.” There are no limits to Disney’s bigotry against Christians. More.
Reality check: Christians are the bulk of Disney’s business, probably. It helps to let them know that they don’t matter, because they don’t. They are just extractible natural resources for the business.
