Elements of this discussion will sound harsh to our ears. "The Left" seems again unnecessarily adversarial, but rememebr that the clip is an out-take of a "Culture Wars" segment. I will also link to useful material if I find it in the "Left".
Isn't it odd how arguements quickly devolve into nonsense these days? If I advocate for the unborn child then that means I want to "trample on the rights of women". If I have problems with homosexual practise because I genuinely believe it's bad for people and contrary to God's loving will then I "hate homosexuals". If I urge caution in bringing in refugees who can't be properly vetted for terror ties then I am accused of not caring about suffering children. If I think we can best lift the condition of all New Zealanders by lowering taxes and promoting the growth of new businesses which will provide jobs then I don't care about the poor and unemployed. And if I have problems with elements of historic orthodox Islamic teaching then I am an "Islamophobe" and of course hate Muslims.
Everything people like me say is usually construed in the least positive way possible and our concerns are dismissed as bigotry. It becomes tiresome, let's not indulge in it. Labelling is not helpful
