“Clearly, we need faith as a component, and it’s just silly to say otherwise. You know the Age of Enlightenment and Reason gave way to moral relativism. And moral relativism is what led us all the way down the dark path to the Holocaust… Dark periods of history is what we arrive at when we leave God out of the equation.”
– Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America, in response to a proposal for a “National Day of Reason” made by Charlotte, North Carolina Mayor Anthony Foxx. Foxx, whom President Obama has nominated for Secretary of Transportation, suggested the “National Day of Reason” be held in conjunction with the “National Day of Prayer.”
So apparently just asking people to be reasonable and actually try to think before they act somehow leads to genocide? The Nazi Holocaust remains one of the worst human-made calamities in modern history, and when people like Nance try to connect it liberal ideology, it diminishes its severity. It’s a collective slap in the face to the millions of people who lost their lives in that event and in other similar atrocities. Note to Nance and the cantankerous heifers that comprise CWA: people don’t commit mass murder because they sat down and thought about it for a while!
You know, I’m all for reason and logic! We don’t have enough of it in Washington or in the mainstream media these days!
