Andrew Sullivan

Below are the words of writer/blogger Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Dish, who has since defected from the right.

I cannot support a movement that holds that purely religious doctrine should govern civil political decisions and that uses the sacredness of religious faith for the pursuit of worldly power.

I cannot support a movement that is deeply homophobic, cynically deploys fear of homosexuals to win votes, and gives off such a racist vibe that its share of the minority vote remains pitiful.

I cannot support a movement which has no real respect for the institutions of government and is prepared to use any tactic and any means to fight political warfare rather than conduct a political conversation.

I suggest Sullivan read Why You're Wrong about the Right, and then try to make this same claim again.

  1. Andrew Sullivan shouldn't be taken seriously by the left or right. His obsession with Sarah Palin's uterus and the provenance of her youngest son serves to completely discredit any standing he once had as a respected public intellectual. He spews hateful and intellectually dishonest nonsense, and adds insult to injury by doing it in the name of purported intellectual honesty.

    "Ridiculous" is right.
