self proclaimed of course, because one would be hard pressed to call many of their beliefs valuable in light of all practical, sensible, and factual evidence.
for instance, is it a value to teach children that dinosaurs and humans roamed the earth together a short six thousand years ago, when god created everything in six days?
is it a value to exclude homosexuals from the privileges of marriage and the blanket of family just because one chooses to believe a few isolated scriptures?
is it a value to require by law that someone else’s 3 day old, 100 cell, blastocyst remain frozen until armageddon (at which time its outcome is in question anyway), rather than allow its creators’ the right to donate it to research?
is it a value to say thou shalt not kill … except in the following cases?
the list goes on and on.
but even more telling, these ‘values’ are the descendants of the same ‘values’ that burned witches at the stake, opposed equal rights at every turn, and would love nothing more than to return the american family back to the days of father knows best—flipping scriptures upside down to mandate their self-serving beliefs.
if these are value voters, thank god i am a valueless one.
