Rep. Bob Morris is a glutton for punishment it appears. Not being content to simply not vote for an innocuous resolution congratulating the Girl Scouts on its centennial, Morris wrote a letter to his colleagues to inform them about his “web-based research.” He took a public beating.
Well, apparently Rep. Morris isn’t here for the hunting. He has written a column for the Washington Times entitled Shut up and sign. If your culture war makes you the enemy of the Girl Scouts, perhaps you should re-think your strategy and take a moment to figure out what the hell you’re so mad about. Quoth the Morris:
Nothing short of the destruction of our faith and values would satisfy progressives. We have been left with no choice but to refuse to cede even one more inch of ground in this bloody culture war. The time for resolve is now.
Things change and the past was never as good as you remember it. But, no matter how tingly it makes you, that doesn’t mean you’re a brave warrior in some kind of existential struggle. You’re a small cog in a vast, ever-changing universe. Hubris, arrogance, and wishing it were otherwise doesn’t change that. Show some adaptability and some humility and realize you have fellow travelers with concerns and lives every bit as valid as your own. And for goodness sake, quit picking on the Girl Scouts.
