Ah, don’t you love the refreshing brand of acceptance and tolerance that the liberal left aims in the direction of conservatives and Christians? It’s splendid, isn’t it? A real example of what true tolerance is… (Of course, I’m being completely sarcastic.)
When it comes to tolerance, liberals live by the sentiment ‘do was we say, not as we do.’ Another example of that played itself out in a recent interview that popstar Miley Cyrus gave to the magazine Paper. Her interview spent a lot of time discussing Christianity, conservatism and how Cyrus was raised. And she didn’t have much good to say about the first two topics.
The magazine’s story on Cyrus notes that though she was raised Christian, the singer “maintains a particular contempt for fundamentalist lawmakers who rally against this sort of progressive, potentially life-saving changes [for the LGBT] community.”
The pop star told the mag, “Those people [shouldn’t] get to make our laws.”
The article touches on what Cyrus thinks of people who believe Noah’s Ark was a real vessel, “That’s f–king insane,” she told the magazine. “We’ve outgrown that fairy tale, like we’ve outgrown f–king Santa and the tooth fairy.”
She praises her parents throughout the interview, yet Cyrus slams their politics calling them “conservative-ass mother–kers.”
It’s disgusting tripe, of course. Cyrus is basically arguing that because Christians do not agree with her on certain issues that we don’t have any right to participate in society or in government. To Cyrus, our beliefs disqualify from participation in the world around us, but don’t worry folks, because she ‘is the least judgmental person ever.’
Over at Patheos, Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, responded to Cyrus’ disgusting treatment of Christians and conservatives.
Is it just me or does it seem more than a little fake that someone claiming to be accepting of everyone and everything would spew such judgment towards her own parents and their deeply held religious beliefs?
She wants everyone else to let her be “free to be Miley,” but seems unwilling to offer the same respect to her parents and those who wish to live out their Christian faith.
Oh, Miley. Thanks for giving us the best example of what “tolerance” looks like in Hollywood: it looks a lot like contempt.
Well said, Bristol, well said. When it comes to tolerance and acceptance, the liberal path is a One-Way Street named Hypocrisy Road.
