Religious Freedom, Democrat Style

Despite their open hostility toward Christianity, Democrats have a conception of religious freedom that goes beyond siding with Muslims at every opportunity.

Last month,

Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) filed H.R. 4169, the “Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund Act.” The bill would allow taxpayers “who are conscientiously opposed to participation in war” to send their tax dollars to a separate fund that would spend the revenue on non-military purposes.

In contrast,

In December 2016, he joined 106 other Democrats in urging President Donald Trump to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which protects taxpayers from being forced to fund abortion…

Money is fungible anyway. If you pay taxes, you finance both war and abortion. Hyde Amendment or no Hyde Amendment, over half a $billion per year of federal tax money is funneled into the lucrative and politically connected abortion mill Planned Parenthood.

Lewis’s posturing is strictly symbolic. But everything is symbolic in politics. This symbolizes both Democrat morality (killing inconvenient babies is unquestionably acceptable; defending your country is morally dubious) and the Democrat conception of the role of government (promoting degeneracy by killing babies is an essential service; national defense is optional).
