Evangelicals Get It

Via RealClearPolitics, I read today a CNN report: Frist not invited to evangelical rally.

Good news; although our Evangelical friends at Family Research Council are at least partly mad at Frist because he failed to help them wreck the filibuster. Unfortunately, there is so much misunderstanding on this issue, beginning with exactly what the GOP would do to pull off the so-called "nuclear option" to end filibusters against judicial nominees. Simply put, it's a dishonest parliamentary maneuver, and done once, it can be done again: so what the GOP does today to filibusters on judicial nominees, it or the Dems will do on legislative filibusters.

And that ought to give us the willies, because the filibuster has stopped any number of awful bills in the past, and will in the future.

But back to the good news. Its important prolifers don't fall for the claim that one can be for destroying embryos for research, and still be prolife. We can't win unless we always have the moral high ground, and that is: we don't kill unborn children. Period.
