“‘Moral values’ as a category cannot be segregated from things like jobs, taxes, the economy, health care, the environment, the war in Iraq, Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo, government secrecy, honesty, corporate corruption, educational opportunity and protection of civil rights. All of these are also moral issues.”
I care about these things. I voted for Kerry based on my beliefs in this area. And yet somehow I am immoral for voting the way I did? I don’t think so. I think a lot of so-called “moral values” voters need to reread the words of the One they claim to worship.
