Great op-ed on the destruction of the personal beliefs and feelings at the hands of far left minions. It appears those on the far left have replaced faith in a higher being with their own post-modern illiberal religion which can’t consist of those who value free thinking. Little do they know that these continuing infringements on peoples consciences could have dire effects in the future when the inevitable backlash hits. The fact that a pretty liberal individual who happens to have a belief in God was consistently hounded by the left and press while other candidates were not having their faith questioned is appalling. I hope Mr. Farron is able to find some peace now that he is no longer in the crucible of 21st century post modern politics.

This appears to be the sanest take on the latest Trump debacle. I think its best to reserve judgement until further information is unveiled. Neither Trump or the media have proven themselves to be trustworthy.

“Socially and morally conservative opinions are treated as phobias and heresies.” This appears to not only be an English phenomena as it is prevalent across all Western countries. “Sorry, but  the market just isn’t a substitute for morality  and human decency.” I concur with this sentiment.

Lauren Southern an omnipresent right leaning journalist activist was recently caught doing some questionable activities off the coast of Italy. Southern along with other vigilante groups from Europe appear to be taking the law into their own hands by attempting to interfere with boats entering and leaving Italy. To me this is crossing a line which ought not to be crossed. First and foremost its extremely dangerous to be going around aggressively trying to impede boats passage and endangers the lives of those on both vessels. Secondly this to me equates to the vigilante Greenpeace activists who sail down and attempt to disrupt the Japanese whaling operation. Its extremely dangerous and when met with violent action the natural response is to return with violence which eventually causes the situation to escalate. I don’t wish to see some dangerous acts occur which dissuades the public from empathizing with the positions of right leaning groups over something entirely preventable. I feel that Southern would be doing infinitely more good if she were to produce a hard hitting documentary in Italian which chronicled the voyage of these migrant vessels and the ineptitude or nonchalant stance of the government officials. This I feel would have far more reaching potential and persuasion power over the common voter. The whole charade of attempting to stop boats in dangerous ways is incredibly foolish.

You can make of the recent transformation of the United State’s morality what you may, however I can only deduce that it doesn’t bode well for the future. I did find the low approval of extramarital affairs to be interesting as I thought it would be higher. The fact that these acts are rapidly becoming morally permissible in the minds of the people  is pretty incredible and even more incredible are that these changes are occurring in less than two decades. Perhaps at the very least people can now visibly recognize that there is not a clear consensus on several contentious moral issues.
