The Church of Liberalism

I just caught part of a segment on The O’Reilly Factor about some judge who gave a disgustingly-lenient sentence to a violent criminal. The guests were Fox judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano and some ditzy defense attorney.

Napolitano said he reviewed this judge’s record, and he found a history of light punishments for similar crimes. In response, the ditz said O’Reilly & Napolitano had no right to make criticisms because they “weren’t in the courtroom.” Never mind that the entirety of the man’s record had been called into question.

The interesting thing: isn’t this one of the major attacks on religious hierarchy, the idea that instead of grappling with ideas’ merits & genuine concerns, it tries to stifle & delegitimize dissent from “outsiders?” Once again, the thesis of
this book is supported: liberalism is a religion (only without the good parts).
