…but I’m still puzzled by the fact that, after 40 years of pro-abort zealotry from the Democratic party, some Democrats are just now leaving the party–because of gay “marriage” and the HHS mandate. Those things are bad, of course. But it’s still weird to me that somebody could go for decades watching the spectacle of Dems passionately defending sticking scissors in a baby’s brain and then suddenly say, “But gay marriage? That’s crossing the line!” It makes me wonder how such people process information and make moral evaluations. Glad to see they are abandoning any organization committed to these “core values”. But it doesn’t fill me with too much confidence that they are necessarily going to bring moral wisdom to whatever political home they wind up in (assuming they wind up anywhere, since a lot of us are politically homeless and alienated from the worthless circus of American politics).

I had similar thoughts when I read some of these stories from those who left the Democrat Party. Considering all the moral straws that have been piling on the proverbial’s camel back you think this must have been one strong mutant camel with a backbone made of titanium. But with Mr. Shea I am happy to see them realize the truth and pray more do the same, especially as an ex-Democrat myself and one who also had a high-resistance to reality.
