Here's a classic example of Marxist double-speak. It's so brazen, it could have come right out of something George Orwell wrote.
Alarmed by what they see as religious groups' growing influence on government policy, a consortium has launched a public awareness campaign to defend the First Amendment's vow that 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.'
'That cherished freedom is under severe attack,' the Rev. Welton Gaddy said before an audience of about 700 people in San Jose.
Friday's event included an appearance by newsman Walter Cronkite, who endorsed the new national campaign called First Amendment First.
It calls for houses of worship to stop endorsing political candidates and for states' tax dollars not to go to any charity that discriminates in its hiring or requires people hold a certain faith to receive services.
It also says science and health policies should be based on scientific data, "not religious doctrine," and that schools shouldn't promote any religious reference.
Only Marxists and liberals (pretty much the same thing, I know) could come up with the logic of championing something by minimizing it and prohibiting its public expression.
(But then, people would more easily realize what they're really up to if they just came out and said it, right?)
I knew when I saw the title, "Cronkite opposes religious influence," it had to be "good." My first reaction to seeing the title was, "Naw, really?"
Cronkite is a well-known ultra-lib.
