Here at AIW we've been watching the Rep. Anthony Weiner scandal with detached interest.
We really can't understand what all the fuss is about. Rep. Weiner is a pro-abortion, pro-contraception, pro-Planned Parenthood, pro-homosexual, pro-divorce, pro-pornography, pro-prostitution, pro-fornication member of congress. He thinks that way so of course he's going to act that way like so many others before him -- Bill Clinton, Eliot Spitzer, Arnold Schwarzenegger, just to name a few.
Afterall, wasn't Rep. Weiner just living the lifestyle he strongly believes in and promotes through legislation in Congress? The same lifestyle that millions of American affirm when they vote liberal candidates of either party into office. No wonder he's refusing to resign.
In many ways it reminds us of the shock over the abortion murders committed by Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Dr. Gosnell's crime was that he, "induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord," Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams has said.
Hello? Don't the American people get that abortion is legal in America through all nine months of pregnancy? Every year about 1.5 million are killed through abortion. Do they not know that zero, nada, zilch regulations exist governing how those babies are killed? "Inducing labor and cutting the back of the babies' necks with scissors and severing their spinal cords" is not illegal in America, even if the babies are "viable" as ABC's so kindly stated it for their naive readers who still think most abortions are pleasant affairs for women and babies.
As Christina Dunnigan at Realchoice points out, someone who does get the connection between getting out what you put in is the President of the United States -- "The President of the United States himself, when he was a State Senator in Illinois, went on record as believing that babies born alive during abortions are not to be afforded the same care and treatment as other babies, because to do so would unduly “burden” the woman and her doctor."
Apparently Dr. Gosnell was astonished that he was being so vigorously prosecuted.
We are more intrigued by the question of why is it that the American public is so shocked that after electing people who promote these horrific outcomes, the nation gets those exact outcomes.
All these things -- abortion, contraception, Planned Parenthood, homosexual acts, divorce, pornography, prostitution, fornication are either legal or promoted as critical to the American Way of Life and symbols of our great liberty and freedom. The American people shouldn't be surprised when that is what they get from their children, parents, elected officials and yes, even church leaders.
And that's exactly what we got with Rep. Weiner. He was simply living the Planned Parenthood lifestyle of "safe sex" that is promoted everyday in public schools, on television and legislative action around the country. According to Planned Parnethood, anything that feels good and is consentual is a-okay with PP and their supporters. Age, gender, marital status, location, etc. are irrelevant to those living the PP lifestyle. If it feels good do it!
We don't take joy in anyone's humiliation and failures but we do have to say that we aren't surprised. Elected officials like Rep. Weiner who think that way about sex are going to act that way.
