Why do liberals only recognize religion when it benefits their cause?


LINK
quote:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein opens up anti-gun presser with a prayer
quote:

Hall spoke briefly before the prayer, calling for Washington lawmakers to stop fearing the gun lobby and fulfill their “moral duty” to restrict guns.


They avoid religion like the plague when it comes to abortion.....and heaven forbid a prayer is said before a high school football game.

Are you talking about atheists or liberals? I know some very religious liberals. I don't agree with their politics but we can draw the line there and agree totally with our religious beliefs.

I am referring to liberals and especially social issues. They never want to bring religion into the discussion about abortion or gay marriage but it is ok for them use religion to get a gun law passed.

The Dems have similar problems with social issues in general as the Repubs do. The difference is that most Dems that I know won't not vote for a candidate based on one or two issues while some of the Repubs I know will not vote for someone even over just one issue.

Wait, they can't say a prayer?

I think you are getting mad to get mad here.

if they used religion to justify the law, then yes, your critique is valid but i don't see bible verses throw around in the gun debate.

i don't see inconsistency here.

Pro gun fwiw, and don't agree with her proposal which will go nowhere.

If she opens all of her press conferences with a prayer I take back what I said. If she doesn't she is a hypocrite.

Well, I can promise that I'll never bring up religion. Your irrational beliefs shouldn't affect public policy.

I don't want to bring religion into those discussions because I don't think serious issues should be influenced by fricking fairy tales.

It's because prayer/religion used in the right context brings sympathy to their cause.

Because laws should not be based on a Religious belief? A pretty good rule of thumb that all parties should adopt.

Because their favorite insult to hurl at conservatives is hypocrisy.

However they aren't very acceptable to the same label.

In fairness, social conservatives are guilty of the same thing.

Total opposite here. People won't vote for Republicans because of one issue. The state is broke and several more taxes and income taxed increased to the highest in the nation on 1/1. Business has been leaving yet they want more "programs."
