"Mary and Heather can believe what they want," Knight said, "but what they're seeking is to force others to bless their nonmarital relationship as marriage" and to "create a culture that is based on sexual anarchy instead of marriage and family values."
But here's the thing. For as long as I can remember it has been considered a matter of shame for an unwed woman to conceive a child. An untold number of abortions have resulted from this culture of shame, yet those who are most opposed to abortion are the very ones who dole out the shame. So here's my question:
Are these conservatives suggesting that Mary Cheney should wed a man (which is extremely unlikely) or are they implying that she should terminate the pregnancy?
Does it get any lower than this? The thing is, this isn't anything new. This is where the religious right stood even back when Jesus walked the earth.
