Evidence Liberals Are Bad – Liberals Are Shutting Down Choice for Birth Moms

The Daily Signal provided evidence Liberals are bad in a post called “How Liberal Activists Are Shutting Down Choice for Birth Moms”

While, I don’t agree with the conclusions in the post, and I question some of the evidence they provide, the narrative they present is reasonable.  And I respect it as an important topic.

I think families should be able to place a child in a home they want and agree with.  If placing a child in a home with a similar faith is important, then that should be fully honored.  It’s wrong, in my humble opinion, to deny a family their choice in this way.

Looking at the links provided in the post, I don’t think those links provide evidence that supports their conclusions.

But, apparently, Christians see their faith under attack and to them, this is further evidence of that truth.

Here is what they say.

Across the country, liberal activists are accusing faith-based adoption and foster care agencies of discrimination because they prefer placing children with married moms and dads. The situation has left faith-based agencies with a difficult choice: violate their religious beliefs about sexuality and marriage, or shut down.

 

“I would never tell a gay couple, ‘Oh, because you two are in love with each other and you’re not a heterosexual couple, don’t even think about adopting a child.’ That’s not what I’m saying,” Kelly Clemente, a birth mother who placed her son for adoption, told The Daily Signal. “What I’m saying is that birth mothers have the right to choose.”

In at least four states, birth mothers don’t have the right to choose because faith-based agencies were pressured to close. In Illinois, after serving the community for more than 50 years, Catholic Charities was forced to stop its adoption and foster care services. At least 2,000 children were disrupted, and thousands more foster parents were lost as a result.

 

In all of these states, plenty of agencies exist that will facilitate adoptions to same-sex couples. But still, groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) are moving forward with lawsuits trying to force all adoption providers, including those of faith, to facilitate adoptions to same-sex couples.

 

As a result, some are turning to the federal government to pass the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act, a bill that would protect the rights of birth moms, and the rights of faith-based adoption and foster care agencies to continue operating in accordance to their religious beliefs.

 

“Birth mothers already sacrifice so much,” said Clemente. “I don’t think that they should have to sacrifice their faith, too.”

Brian Kemp Provides More Evidence Conservatives Cannot Govern Effectively

Brian Kemp provides more evidence Conservatives cannot govern.

Apparently Secretary of State Brian Kemp is attacking another Conservative group called Citizens for Georgia’s Furture. Conservatives have to attack everyone.  They trust no one.  No wonder our government is dysfunctional.  It is, not surprisingly, being run by Conservatives.

The latest evidence is a report from Greg Bluestein, AJC Political Insider, that Kemp assailed  “secret donors and shady tactics” from Citizens for Georgia’s Future in a speech at the Cobb County GOP over the weekend.  Kemp was upset that Citizens for Georgia’s Future said they ” could” launch ads to try to influence the race for the No. 2 spot in the May 22 primary.

Kemp is reported as having said:

  • “That’s typical, pathetic, insider politics if you ask me,” ,
  • “I fully expect” to be targeted by pro-Cagle forces in the next two weeks.
  • He said the group will criticize his record as Georgia’s top elections official and question his experience in the private sector.
  • “Cagle’s team will attempt to stop the bleeding he’s experiencing by lashing out at me,”
  • “But you’re smarter than that.”

Just as a reminder we are filling up two big Kemp evidence buckets: 1) Kemp’s role in data breaches and disclosures, 2) The lawsuit claiming he lied to make $500,00.0.

Again, this is evidence that Conservatives just cannot govern.  They don’t trust anyone.

In these critical times for our communities, one would think the GOP would be talking about how to solve the issues.  Particularly how to solve the issues of divisiveness in our communities.  Instead of walking the walk of improved civility they chose to attack in relatively mean ways.  Using phrases like “secret donors and shady tactics” and “That’s typical, pathetic, insider politics if you ask me.”

It is normal political communication to criticize your opponent.  But, Kemp, Cagle, and most Conservatives have raised criticism to a hateful art.

We know they don’t like government.  This is evidence for a possible reason they hate government.  Perhaps they hate everyone that is not them.

Evidence Karen Handel is Not Bipartisan

Evidence Karen Handel is not bipartisan can be found in a Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy report.

The study found Karen Handel to be one of the least bipartisan House lawmakers. She was 435 out of 438 in terms of her ability to reach out to others that think differently.

This is important because in my humble perspective, since she only won the District 51% to 48%, she should be more bipartisan.

This evidence suggests Handel is not the right candidate for the 6th District.

Of course, selective perception, confirmation bias, and motivated reasoning affects what conclusions one can draw from the evidence.  Here is a sampling of the conclusions one might draw, given your tribal leanings.

  • Dems would conclude:
    • Handel is indeed a Trump Tool and will do whatever Trump supporters tell her to do.
    • She believes compromising with anyone to her left is a bad thing, not because of any reasonable policy differences, but simply because leftists are bad and you must not compromise with them.
  • Trump Supporters would conclude:
    • It does not matter what the evidence is because Georgetown is a liberal academic center.  Anything they put out is biased, and anything biased from the left has to be completely ignored.
    • Even it is true, even if, in fact, Handel is not bipartisan, well that is a good thing.  We don’t want compromise with the Lefties because they are destroying America and we need to make America Great again, like in the 1950s.  For Trump supporters the ends justifies the means.  Winning is the goal.  Getting their agenda is the goal.  Compromise is not the goal.  If fact, they believe compromise got us to this terrible place to begin with.
  • Libertarians would conclude:
    • The faction within Libertarians that believe in individual freedom and understand Hayek’s writings on Central Planners, would probably agree the evidence is valid and Handel is not bipartisan.  And that should disqualify her in their eyes.  (This faction would follow James Maddison’s advice in Federalist Paper #10 about “factions.”  Madison wrote, “By a faction, I understand a number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or a minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adversed to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.”   I would think Libertarians would want bipartisanship.
    • The racists faction within the larger Libertarian community, who don’t want the Government giving money to blacks, or having blacks in government, would say that Handel lack of bipartisanship is a badge of honor.  The ends justifies the means and Handel should not compromise with those lefties, commies, socialists atheists.

Looking at the report we, the Georgia 6th District, think the report is credible enough to believe it is correct.  We conclude Karen Handel is not “bipartisan.”  And we further think this is a negative.  We think our Representative should have the 6th District top of mind, not GOP, Dem, or Libertarian.

If there are Trump Supporters or Karen Handel supporters that want to help provide evidence that either Karen is bipartisan and the report is wrong, or it is better that she is not bipartisan, here are our questions for Karen Handel:

  • Does she consider the report valid?  Would she say that they missed all the bipartisan things she has done?
  • Would she consider herself bipartisan?  If so, what examples can she provide?
  • What has she done in our Community to reach out the 48% that voter against her?
  • Does she think the ends justify the means?

Of course getting honest answers from Karen, her supporters or Trump Supporters, is not likely.  She/they would lie about this stuff.  She is a politician, after all.

Clowns in the Press Embrace Truthiness Over Truth Because They Can – TheResurgent.com

If your friends are telling you he is an idiot, why is he performing well, where it counts? I think there are too many who rush to judge the President on style, or personality, when they should be judging him on performance. Is it just that many are too caught up in playing like the media and everyone is now their own pundit of personality? I guess many live in the tweet domain of life and choose not to live their own lives. I think most Americans still just want to go and do their jobs, entertain themselves and their family, play with the dog, go out to eat, exercise and go to sleep at night, rather than worry over what the President says on Twitter. I doubt I’ll be buying that book about how crazy he is, or let it bother me. There is just too much else to do. Me? I’m re-grouting the floor in one of the bathrooms, this morning. I’d rather be talking about what the government shouldn’t be doing, than to concern myself, further, with what some gossip novelist says, who can’t be trusted to write or bother with anything, more than gossip.
