Wooldridge's family values

Posted By on Thu, Feb 11, 2010 at 6:50 AM

Blogger Blue Arkansas reports 1st District congressional candidate Tim Wooldridge's leadership role in a group, the Families First Foundation, one of whose controlling purposes is to be anti-homosexual. (Tim Wooldridge's values credentials also include his famous legislation calling for public hangings.) From Families First:

Are Christians guilty of discrimination because of a refusal to tolerate homosexuality? No. There is a difference is wise, informed discrimination and prejudice! Discrimination against what is bad is necessary for the preservation of good. Did past cultures that practiced discrimination know something the current culture should learn? Unless truth has surfaced to discount the social policies of the past, then a similar discrimination against homosexuality and for heterosexuality appears needful for the social good.

Wise discrimination is not prejudice. Nice.

  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
