Tea Party Nation’s Alan Caruba believes that President Obama and Casey Anthony, the Florida mom who was acquitted last week of murdering her infant daughter, have a lot more common than most people think. While discussing the fact that Anthony was a single mother and Obama was raised by a single mother, Caruba alleges that “common to both Ms. Anthony and the President is the persistent and blatant telling of lies.” Caruba, a strident opponent of gay rights and marriage equality, also linked the Anthony murder trial to the legalization of same-sex marriage, growing secularization, and having a “society that allows sexual deviants to parade in our streets and preach their lifestyle in our schoolrooms.” He writes:
Casey Anthony, the mother of a toddler whose body was stuffed into a bag and tossed into a swamp, will walk free in a day or so. A jury was unable to conclude that the abandoned body, its face covered in duck tape, was murdered. There wasn’t, they insisted, enough “proof” even though the child’s mother did not report her to be either dead or missing, and then lied to family, friends, and law enforcement authorities until the body was recovered.
We have gone from a preponderance of traditional two-parent families to a scandal of single-parent “families” and Casey Anthony was just one of many such single mothers. No one knows who the father is.
It is not a stretch to point out that President Obama was the son of a divorced, teen-aged mother, who remarried, divorced again, and abandoned her child to the care of her parents. The President experienced trauma and dislocation throughout all of his formative years. Why should we not conclude that it seriously affected him? To this day, his mother-in-law lives in the White House to provide a measure of care for his two daughters.
Common to both Ms. Anthony and the President is the persistent and blatant telling of lies.
It does not take much prescience or insight to conclude that Casey Anthony will come to a bad end. It’s just a matter of time.
America is heading in a bad direction, too. Do we have time to turn around a wounded society that allows sexual deviants to parade in our streets and preach their lifestyle in our schoolrooms?
Do we have time to end the practice of same-sex marriages?
Do we have time to put an end to all the calls that any symbol of the Christian and Jewish faiths be removed from public display, any mention of God or any prayer in public meetings be silenced?
