Read an Excerpt of "Godless: The Church of Liberalism"

Ugly feminists—or as the New York Times describes them, "by the standards of the time, unlovely"—impotently rail against "sexist men" and "sexual harassment" while simultaneously promoting the view that sex has no sacred purpose, it's just for fun.

Sex must be dissociated from the idea of raising children, liberated from the transmission of humanity. It's a natural function that should carry no more moral consequence than drinking a glass of water, as their demiurge Lenin said. It's in our genes, and therefore it cannot be immoral. We're beasts. Let's rock!

Toward the goal of divorcing sex from reproduction, liberals will lie about anything. In Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), the Supreme Court discovered a constitutional right for married couples to buy contraceptives, premised on the Court's assertion that marriage is a "sacred" institution, protected by "a Right to Privacy older than the Bill of Rights itself." Within a decade, Justice William Brennan would dump the married stuff and extend the right to contraceptives to unmarried people.

In a classic boneheaded, factless, legislative pronunciamento, in Eisenstadt v. Baird (March 22, 1972), Brennan wrote, "It is inconceivable that the need for health controls varies with the purpose for which the contraceptive is to be used when the physical act in all cases is one and the same." Ten years later, the New York Times named AIDS in a May 11, 1982, article headlined "New Homosexual Disorder Worries Health Officials."

A year after Eisenstadt, the malleable "right to privacy" metastasized from a right to contraception for married couples to a right to destroy human life in Roe v. Wade.

What about the poor little tyke's privacy? The question misses the point.

"Constitutional right" means "Whatever Liberals Want." Society cannot legislate what goes on "in the bedroom." But if we can't legislate what goes on in the bedroom, why can't I hide money from the IRS under my mattress?

The cult of liberalism is preposterously fixated on youth—all the while devaluing life at the end, by demanding a "right to die." Richard Lamm, the Democratic governor of Colorado, famously said in 1984, "We've got a duty to die and get out of the way with all of our machines and artificial hearts and everything else like that and let the other society, our kids, build a reasonable life." How about you first, Dick?

Instead of seeking wisdom, liberals desire to be seen as clever by being counterintuitive, crazy, and outré. They have an irreducible fascination with barbarism and will defend anything hateful—Tookie, Mumia, Saddam Hussein, Hedda Nussbaum, abortion, the North American Man/Boy Love Association, New York Times columnist Frank Rich. If Hitler hadn't turned against their beloved Stalin, liberals would have stuck by him, too. Liberals defend unreason against reason and then call themselves rationalists. They are too important to be bothered by the things that frighten middle-class people worried about the equity in their homes. The truly pathetic liberals are the ones who aren't rich but ape the belief structure of fabulously wealthy Hollywood leftists anyway. Like the bums who stood outside restaurants during the Depression with toothpicks in their mouths, they seem not to realize that the crucial part of being rich is that you have money, not attitudes.
