Well, I think NBC has a long record of being very liberal and at the heart of liberalism really is a hatred for God and a belief that government should replace God. And so they've had a long history of not being at all favorable toward many of things that have been such a blessing to our country.The comment immediately drew fire from left-wing blogs and many religious leaders, who argued that Akins comments suggest he "knows very little about liberals" and "very little about God and his son Jesus."
"[Akin] was characterizing what he believes is a difference between two schools of thought: liberalism and conservative ideology. He believes that conservative ideology holds that our rights come from God and that it is the responsibility of governments to help secure and protect those rights, and alternatively, liberalism holds that our rights come from government or governments."Personally, we're not buying Taylor's rhetoric. In fact, we're pretty sure that if Jesus were to descend to Earth in time for the 2012 general election, for which Akin is running for U.S. Senate, the son of God would register with the party that seeks to uphold the civil rights and dignity of all people -- not just those in the highest tax bracket. You know, the very people who Akin says "hates" him.
