Another trick to silence conservatives
By Lloyd Marcus

Okay, so Carrie Prejean, Miss California, posed topless. Is this suppose to disqualify her from standing up for traditional marriage? Then, the media came out with a story about her dad being gay. So, what! This is another dirty trick of the liberal left to silence conservatives.

Unfortunately this tactic continues to work. Here is their premise, unless you live a 'perfect' life, you cannot stand for principles or distinguish between right and wrong. This is hog wash.

Remember when Bill Bennett authored, "The Book of Virtues"? The media cheered and did cartwheels when they discovered he had a gambling problem. The truth that conservative principles are best for all humanity is not diminished because we fall short. Sadly, conservatives are quick to throw our 'flawed' guys under the bus.

Jesus, said "all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." The left uses this truth to say, "NO ONE is qualified to pass judgment" or stand up for righteousness. They wish to pursue their sins without guilt or criticism. Fine. But wrong is wrong. So get over it!

I have sinned and continue to sin. Why? Because I am a flawed human being in need of a savior, Jesus Christ. We can NOT allow the left pointing out our weaknesses to shut us up.

Edmund Burke said, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

The liberal left has launched an extremely aggressive campaign to re-shape America. We MUST 'Take Back America" by standing up for and speaking the truth.

Because people fall short, liberals trash the principle. When President Clinton had sex with Monica, the left basically defended adultery. They trashed the archaic principle of faithfulness to one's wife by saying, "Every man in Bill's position would have reacted as he to the advances of a young woman." Their campaign was so successful, I was shocked to hear a Christian minister parroting their spin.

I strongly support and encourage Ms Prejean to keep standing up for the truth and what is right. Yes, I said, 'right.' Contrary to the rhetoric coming from the left, certain things in life are right or wrong. God Bless!
