Guess Who's Back With a Bee In His Bonnet About Religious Conservatives?

[misquoting Instapundit, and then declaring that Insty is] coming to terms with what the religious right is doing to conservative principles. The important point is that religious zealotry cannot be incorporated into conservatism. It is the nemesis of conservatism. And it has to be purged in order for conservatism to be revived.

This is just part of the reductionist cretinism of liberals -- and yes, Andy is a liberal -- that anything they disagree with must be animated by hated conservative Christians.

Nat Hentoff is a liberal, a Jew (and a non-observant one at that, I think, but I may be wrong), and a secularist, and he comes down on Terri's side.

I was only in church to actually be in church three times for Sunday school. Since then, I've only been inside churches for weddings or to snap pictures as a tourist.

Sullivan is constantly praising himself for his largely phatasmal "independence" and "civility." And yet he writes like the most knee-jerk hack this side of The Nation.

Here's a tip about civility, Andrew: don't attack motives; disagree with the position itself. It is not enough for you to just keep asserting that everything you don't like is due to the "hatred" and "intolerance" of Christians. Whether people are motivated by strong religious convictions about the sanctity of life, or the belief that this case is, legally, a procedural travesty, it's their conclusions that matter, not the underlying motivations you often falsely attribute to them.

In short: Eat me, you reprehensible solipsistic twit.

PS: You have as much business lecturing me on conservatism as I have lecturing you on the proper way to mix Ecstacy and Appeltinis at a Madonna concert pre-party.

PPS: And I know Andrew won't mind this post, because he has assured us on several occasions "God knows, I'm not the easiest person to offend."

I'm just taking him at his word.
