Mark Shea has some interesting things to say about the election of Scott Brown and the Pro-Life movement over at InsideCatholic.com. Mark expresses some doubts I have about the leadership and direction of the movement. His conclusion:
So it's come to this: the Big Thinkers of the Thing that Used to be Conservatism at NRO are commending Massachusetts voters for not being held "hostage to extremists who would rather lose than support a pro-choice candidate" while simultaneously concluding that the takeaway message from Brown's victory is "Waterboarding wins."Translation: Elect pro-aborts -- as long as they're also pro-torture.Incredibly, the election of a man who posed nude and supports torture and the damnable Roe is gushed over as a pro-life victory by multiple pro-life talking heads, while the buzz on Drudge and other "conservative" sites on the day he is elected to the Senate is about the feasibility of packing the guy off to the White House. And all just in time for Roe v. Wade Day!"Scott Brown for President: Support Torture or the Baby Gets It!" Has a nice ring, don't you think?King Pyrrhus, pray for us. If the pro-life movement has many more such victories, it will be undone.
