Something to watch out for

Various lefties were all over the Pope when he said that capitalism needed taming, that ruthless self-interest just weren\’t right. Appeals to authority even: look, distinguished churchman telling the neo-liberals the truth!

Benedict XVI claimed that legislation introduced by Labour to end discrimination “actually violates natural law” because it stopped worshippers remaining true to their beliefs.

Rather than making society more equal, the Government’s new rules limited religious freedom, he said.

Wonder how many of such will support Il Papa\’s latest thought.

That one agrees with some thing someone says and not with others is fine. It\’s rather that you\’re not supposed to make appeals to authority and then be selective…..

As The Guardian headline has it:

Freedom comes before equality

Wel,, yes, it should, certainly…..

    You might want to pass that advice on to the Catholic Church, they’ve been making a living out of that very practice for over 1000 years!

  2. ….That one agrees with some thing someone says and not with others is fine……

    Not if you are a religious zealot or a lefty.

    One of the things the left loves to do is to argue along the following lines:

    Maggie did X (X being something a typical right winger might disagree with). Therefore she’s not all she’s cracked up to be.

    Typical right winger says:
    Yes, she made a mistake, but compared to saving the country from a Sub Saharan African like future, I’d say it was irrelevant.

    Lefty scratches head in perplexity. Lefty heroes have to be perfect.

  3. “Freedom comes before equality”

    Equal measures of freedom is the only equality we should have. As soon as we start to apply that freedom, the inequality begins.
