The Silence of Father Neuhaus

Father Neuhaus is one of the leading and most elegant voices against abortion in public life. The Roe vs. Wade decision was pivotal in his transformation from a liberal to a conservative. But Neuhaus, like Hitchock, fails to understand the danger the right to life movement faces as social conservatives increasingly support presidential candidates with poor records on abortion.

Thanks to the Neocons

Thanks to the Neocons

I daresay that the vice of rashness has pervaded much of the conservative movement in America (as it once did right-wing movements in Europe). In fact, it has almost destroyed that movement. I challenge the reader to visit a public library and go through old numbers of long-standing conservative magazines, and compare the essays they published 30 or 20 years ago, to the sort of thing they are pumping through the editorial pipes today. The experience, I must warn you, will prove depressing.
