Was reading this, about opposition to a CA law allowing transgender students to use whichever restroom is appropriate to them, and in the comments someone mentioned that the problem with the religious right is that it's defined by what they're against rather than what they're for.
The comment is correct, but it's not exclusive to the religious right.
The "Christian Conservative view":
no birth control
no gay marriage
no GLBT rights
no government assistance
no government healthcare
The liberal (godless liberal if you prefer, in the name of balance):
No religious exemptions
No industrial expansion
No parental rights
No free speech unless it meets a certain standard
Obviously, both sides will agree with the other side's list and quibble over the accuracy of their own. Here's the question - can you describe your political leanings without using "not", "against", "no", "restrict" or "prevent" in the descriptions?Answer Question
