Oh, That Liberal Media

Do we really want to ban decency and compassion on Establishment Clause grounds? Apparently the WaPo and NPR think so. Via Eugene Volokh:

From a Friday Washington Post article:

Casting his appeal in religious terms, Bush said, "We must meet our moral obligation to treat newcomers with decency and show compassion to the vulnerable and exploited, because we're called to answer both the demands of justice and the call for mercy."

He added, "Most Americans agree on these principles. And now it's time for our elected leaders in Congress to act.... Each day our nation fails to act, the problem only grows worse. I will continue to work closely with members of both parties, to get past our differences, and pass a bill I can sign this year."

NPR's All Things Considered echoed this the same evening: "The president told the Prayer Breakfast that each day the nation fails to act on immigration, the problem only grows worse, and Mr. Bush used religious terms as he appeal to lawmakers.... [']We must meet our moral obligation to treat newcomers with decency and show compassion to the vulnerable and exploited, because we're called to answer both the demands of justice and the call for mercy. Most Americans agree on these principles — excuse me — and now, it's time for our elected leaders in Congress to act.[']"

The Theocracy TM... it's so oppressyve. The hell of it is, when you're determined to see conspiracies everywhere it's amazing the amount of evidence there is out there to back up your persecution complex.

We just can't make this stuff up. Speaking of which, which of you did this to me?

Heh. Mine is rated PG, citing several uses of the words "dangerous," and one use of "kill."

The occasion, of course, was a review of The Dangerous Book for Boys, which teaches you how to kill a rabbit.

The Donovan. Or BillT. I hear they flounce in from time to time.

Someone must have mentioned Ice Cream.

Posted by: Masked Menace at June 22, 2007 02:59 PM

It's all right, Carrie. Violence is always rated more gently than sex. :)

Posted by: Grim at June 22, 2007 03:28 PM

Apparently, my blog is rated PG, also based on the presence of the word dangerous.

Heaven forfend!!! I'm guessing your rating is based on the presence of the "F" word...

Posted by: camojack at June 22, 2007 04:46 PM

Wrong.

It was sex, gun, death and (believe it or not) dick. And I'm guessing that was someone's name. Also the word pain was up there once.

My livejournal got NC-17... and boy that thing has a wierd grasp of what qualifies for NC-17:

* gun (9x)
* dead (7x)
* murder (5x)
* hell (3x)
* kill (2x)
* crappy (1x)

Crappy? Wow.

Posted by: MikeD at June 22, 2007 05:11 PM

Heh.

Mr. Rdr's blog is only rated PG-13, for the words "Death" and "Viagra".

Quiet down now, or I will use my sex gun to dick you to death.

Sincerely,
The King of Pain

Hmmm...well, I'm 99.9(99)% certain I've seen the "F" word in the comments section here; maybe they only parse the posts themselves...

Posted by: camojack at June 22, 2007 05:31 PM

Easy up on that slur sir. Private dicks have feelings too... We're doin the work regular flat-foots don't wanna do.

If you will excuse me, I have to run. I'm dead meat if I don't get back to the club in time for show. Not only will Mother murder me, but dealing with Lieutenant Jacoby will be hell to pay and the bondage of a jail cell is more pain than I can bear.

Most important of all, NADA will not begin to describe my chances of ever having sex with Edie again.

Why does Peter always shoot from the lip?

You got those names in the wrong order....

I think that Peter Gunn fellow sank any chance of getting Milady's blog back to a PG rating.

Even though taken in context, as if context means much any more, 'twas just another 50's Peter Gunn Private Detective episode at the wharf...

Just because a few million leftists prefer National Palestinian Radio, does not mean it has any validity. Many people thought the Earth was flat as well. In fact, I think they are Al Gore's environmental advisers.

Anyway, I would consider it an honor and a privilege if you would add my blog "The Tygrrrr Express" www.blacktygrrrr.wordpress.com to your list of linked sites if you feel the quality is high.

I came across your blog through Michelle Malkin's website, since I enjoy her writing.

Happy summer.
