In praise of Rush Limbaughby Tip O'Neill on Mar. 03, 2012, under Bigotry, Catholic, Christian, contraception, medical care, Republican, santorum
On his radio show recently Rush Limbaugh stirred up a hornet’s nest of condemnation.
He stated that the only valid sexual activity for a woman was to have sex with her one and only lifelong husband in such a way that pregnancy might result.
Anything else – any sex acts, any other person, any use of artificial birth control was sinful and his conscience was offended by the idea of government sponsored medical care actually paying for birth control so that women could sin.
The Catholic bishops meanwhile launched a major campaign, taken up by the Repub party and appearing before Congress, to denounce sluts who want to engage in sex and expect them to pay for it.
Or maybe it was the other way around – it doesn’t really matter.
Because all that Rush has done is say exactly the same thing that the Bishops said and the Republicans are saying, using more colloquial language.
And if you want to see hypocrisy in action, watch the people who will condemn Rush and applaud the Bishops.
