The Issue is Morality: TTF

Woo hoo! The Conservative Voice is having a big time with this morning's Times article. Ya gotta love the headline: HOMO OK, CONDOMS ON CUKES: SCHOOL SEX ED. At least you know exactly what you're dealing with there.

Their version of it:
No matter the Red States win, the Blue States (im)morality is still going strong in some places.

So it is in Montgomery County, Maryland, according to The Washington Times' Jon Ward. That school system is ready to have students slide
condoms on cucumbers. It's ready to explain — without any mention of morality — that homosexual lifestyles are fact, okay, and open for

There you have it: a retake of immorality presented as "amorality."

Don't worry, I'm not going to go through the article and complain about all the errors. That does get boring, and, well, this is the Conservative Voice.

But I'll tell ya, it gets under my skin when these guys describe their view of "homos" as "moral."

And you watch, wide-eyed, as The Times' fiction-writing snowballs:
The TTF group has accented right up front that when it comes to homosexual lifestyles education in the pilot program, "morality has no place in the debate." That's it. "Morality has no place in the debate." Closed subject. Done. Delivered.

TTF -- that's us, Those quotation marks? Those are quotes from Jon Ward, a reporter for The Washington Times. You would almost think for a moment that one of us said that "morality has no place in the debate." Nope. Jon said that. He made it up, attributed it to us, and now these guys put quotes around it and tell the world we said it.

Morality has every place in the debate. Good ol' love-your-neighbor, judge-not-lest-ye-be-judged, let-he-who-is-without-sin-cast-the-first-stone, do-unto-others-as-you-would-have-them-do-unto-you kind of morality, yes, forgiveness, truthfulness, honesty, kindness, mercy -- morality is central to this debate.
