Left Exalts Sex over Religion

Why do news media focus on how a radio host insulted a political activist, rather than more important matters like our trillion-dollar deficit, soaring gasoline prices, and millions out of work.

The insult was totally wrong. But also wrong was the activist's wildly-exaggerated claim that she could not afford birth control. Yet worst is the effort to force church-run charities to provide birth control when it violates their teachings. 

Many liberals want to create new sexual rights and give them priority over religious rights. They claim that mandatory contraception and same-sex marriage—although never mentioned in the Constitution—are more important than religious freedom, which is explicitly guaranteed by the First Amendment.

This is why liberals ignore the threats to religious liberty. They push aside runaway spending and other matters because they're fighting a sexual revolution--which they claim is more important than anything else.
