Our Common Good

I love this info - admittedly, I didn’t think I would when I saw the site name. Have not dug around to see what I would think of other pages on the site, but this page is a winner. 

A seed of hope for the times we are in.  Eventually social conservatives lose and our nation moves forward. 

Society loses, as social conservatives twist facts to support their own private religious beliefs. American families are directly harmed by these “pro-family” groups who teach Americans lies about their own family members.   Fortunately, the history of social conservatism is one of repeated losses – and each time social conservatives lose America became a stronger, more free society.  Of course, as they claimed with ending slavery, allowing women to vote, and abolishing segregation, social conservatives now claim that  allowing gay Americans to have equal rights will somehow lead to society falling apart. Their is no logical reason to believe this is true, but they like to claim it nonetheless. Fortunately, polls show that Americans – even Republicans, increasingly see through the lies. It’s only a matter of time before gay equality is the law of the land and social conservatives are proven wrong once again.

For the rational wing of the Republican Party

Ron Hill

“And I am even more angry as a legislator who must endure the threats of every religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my vote on every roll call in the Senate. I am warning them today: I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of ‘conservatism’.”

— U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater, aka “Mr. Conservative”
