'Cross lobby’ shows 'progressive' hypocrisy on church-state separation

... "An occasional recurring theme on 'The War on Guns' blog is how the regressive left, as exemplified by groups like 'Americans United for the Separation of Church and State,' goes into IRS-siccing hissy fits whenever conservative religious values surface in government affairs. That generally prompts them to point loudly and insistently to the 'wall of separation,' cite the First Amendment proscription that 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,' and generally act like they can’t wait to find a hamlet somewhere with a manger scene in a public park at Christmas so they can tear it down and make someone pay for having their atheist sensibilities offended. ..." ...

"Politicians, including the president, have been throwing around a stat recently in their push for more gun control."

"We keep hearing that 40% of gun purchases take place without a background check."

"Noted gun violence researcher Dr. John Lott has published an article on the National Review Online debunking that number."

"Apparently the stat comes from a survey of 251 people almost 20 years ago and when you take out guns that were inherited, legally given as gifts, or issued to a person at their work (law enforcement, private security, etc) the number is actually closer 15%." ...

"Drawing on their boundless linguistic ingenuity, the British have worked out a neat little trick to take the edge off when endorsing restrictions on individual liberty. 'I believe in freedom of speech,' members of parliament or representatives of advocacy groups will say with real poise. And then they will add the word 'but and explain disjointedly why they don’t. For some inexplicable reason, this is startlingly effective. Human ears, it seems, couch the truthful second statement in the more people-pleasing first. The preamble to the 'but' makes what follows all the more persuasive, even when the statements are contradictory. It’s quite brilliant." ...

"Barrow’s late father, James, was a Georgia Superior Court judge and a supporter of the civil rights movement. When James Barrow died in 2000, the Athens Banner-Herald said “he kept a rifle beside his front door” during legal fights over desegregation, which he supported." ...
