RE: Why I Love Obama
I hate to reduce this to such a grim calculus, and I know that the raw bodycount is not always the best way to discern the good, but are we really equating the tragic war going on in Iraq with the unspeakable enormity of abortion in this country and abroad? The former has taken thousands of lives and is wrong, but the proper moral response to our current entanglement is ambiguous. The latter has taken MILLIONS of lives and is morally unambiguous. In both cases, the pursuit of 'freedom' at the cost of fundamental rights (like the right to life) is license, not liberty. But it seems outrageous, and a real distortion of reason, to try to 'cancel out' the enormity of abortion with the current war in Iraq. peace
