For those who have occasionally clicked on the LGF headlines on the right side of this blog, you may have noticed that they are no longer there. For months, LGF blogger Charles Johnson has been hating on people who believe in intelligent design, choosing to equate them on several occasions to radical Islamists. At first, I chose to ignore his diatribes and keep the headlines on this blog since he still occasionally posts some quite useful news. But after a recent increased spate of vitriol aimed at both "creationists" and social conservatives (for some reason, Johnson thinks that the two are one and the same), I decided that while LGF may still from time to time post some insightful commentary or eye-opening facts regarding radical Islam, I don't think the new bent to his site represents this blog enough to link to it any further.

It was interesting and informative to note that he immediately deleted my comment (and my account) on his site stating the aforementioned. Funny how the tolerant can so quickly become intolerant. It's too bad that social conservatives and fiscal conservatives can be at such odds, but perhaps it's all for the better. I hope that the Republican Party does not follow the likes of Johnson into the abyss of social liberalism, or this country will be completely lost. Then again, I suppose it is only a matter of time before America becomes the next Europe; where both parties are basically socialist and liberal. If only people like Mr. Johnson would recognize what created the cultural downfall in Europe in the first place and set it up for the postmodern, multicultural chaos that exists there today.

It is impossible to understate the importance of the next 5-10 years for the Republican Party. Christians should be prepared for the possibility that opposition to abortion and embryonic stem-cell research will no longer be Republican platforms. Life hangs in the balance...
UPDATE: Apparently, as this blogger shows quite well, Charles Johnson is losing respectability in most circles as he careens into vitriolic insanity. It's sad to see such a formerly strong voice of truth slip into irrelevancy.
