Carol Platt Liebau: A Cry of Warning

A Cry of Warning

Newt Gingrich's first column for Human Events Online is here. He sets forth five strategic challenges for America:

1. Confronting a world in which America's enemies, including the irreconcilable wing of Islam and rogue dictatorships, could acquire and use nuclear or biological weapons;

2. Defending God in the public square;

3. Protecting America's unique civilization;

4. Competing in the global economy in an era of the economic rise of China and India, which will require transformations in litigation, education, taxation, regulation, and environmental, energy and health policies for America to continue to be the most successful economy in the world;

5. Promoting active, healthy aging so more people can live longer, which will require dramatic transformation in pensions, Social Security and health care.

For a more straightforward tactical battle plan for 2006 and beyond, however, stick with Hugh Hewitt pithy twelve word formulation:

Win the war.
Confirm the judges.
Cut the taxes.
Control the spending.

You know, if God can't "defend" himself in the public square, he ain't much of a God. Maybe Government should stay out of the religion business and let people worshp as they choose.

We used to call this freedom.

and then the left wing came and screamed that they were offended by God and Jesus and they would no longer be tolerated in the public square...unless you dipicted them as gay.

So you're saying that the left wing is more powerful than God?

I don't know about copioneer, but I'm saying the left are a bunch of whiners who feel guilty at the mere mention of God. To speak of religion in the public square makes the lefties think of all they do that is forbidden by most religions and they feel guilt and shame. That right there is why religion belongs out in the open and not hidden in the closets formerly occupied by gays and other sinners.
