"I pray to be religiously orthodox, culturally conservative, politically liberal, and economically pragmatic."


-Richard Neuhaus



What do you think?























*Even if I think faith-based initiatives are none of the above.

I'm not politically liberal, so I don't think I can input my opinion.
But I get really excited when I see you blogged.
And I put in a non-meanish comment on MBP today because I couldn't think of a mean one. I fail.

I'm still pondering ... but I think I like it, too.

And I think there needs to be a new political party. Anyone with me?

AzĂșcar said...

Me gusta.

Jen said...

I'm with Brooke. Something non-crazyish, and where the politicians are not owned by corporations and tax-dollar-grubbing corporations.

Also, I especially like the economically pragmatic. Down with billions of tax dollars paid in interest on DEBT.

I definitely like it.

I would say I like it, but I'm beginning to really dislike the words "conservative" and "liberal" just because they're so charged in today's political discourse. It's like the words have lost their meaning because they're just used as insults. If that weren't bad enough, people keep redefining the words to suit their own purposes. Liberal can mean progressive or libertarian or both, conservative can mean traditionalist or libertarian or both. People can just switch back and forth as it suits them.

(But I should be ignored, because I'm just having a bitter day.)

(PS - I was meaning to tell you well done for bitch slapping Jake over at MBP. You said basically exactly what I wanted to tell him.)

I like it...particularly the grinding sound "culturally conservative" and "politically liberal" make when they come in proximity of one another. But I like it. And I think it is quite doable.

I like this quote, though I am politically conservative. (I firmly believe in free markets and for people to take full responsibility for themselves.) I think we all need to keep open minds and allow honest argument/debate to form our opinions, not the other way around.
