1. Political tendency which, in the European context, sits firmly in the middle of the spectrum, without any strong political ideology. Synonymous with "middle-of-the-road". American liberals are considerably to the right of their European counterparts.
"A woolly liberal", "a wet liberal"
2. Theological tendency, synonymous with Modernist, opposite to Conservative or Fundamentalist.
3. An ill-defined term, often abusive, which provokes violent and hysterical reactions from Americans.
A woolly liberal
A wet liberal
A goddam liberal bastard
In want of government control over the people.
Do not care for environment.
Use Global Warming as a fear tactic to get into power.
If the enviro-fascist liberals really cared for the environment, they wouldn't be pushing for the Kyoto Treaty (which would destroy our economy) they would be pushing for government funds to pay to solar panels on houses, electrical powered cars and nuclear power instead of bashing Bush for not being able to pronounce 'nuclear' correctly.
Instead, they want the Kyoto Treaty while brain-washing America into wanting the same think.
The Kyoto Treaty will reduce carbon gases and destroy our economy, leaving the survival of the nation in the hands of the government instead of the free market and freedom.
They Liberals are hypocrites too.
Most supported (Hillary Rodham Clinton too) President Bush in the War in Iraq from the start. Now they want to pull out because of the big mess it has caused.
A pull out will only result in mass chaos because neighboring countries will want Iraq for themselves.
President Bush is doing the responsible thing by staying in and finishing this fight to the end. Making up for what we started.
The media is heavily influenced by the liberals and leftist movements.
Liberals ban teaching God in school, yet allow...
a word meaning generous or a lot which comes from the latin adjective ilberalis, is, e.
he made a very liberal donation.
I think that, unlike many people posting here, I'll use rational argument to prove my points...
1. Liberals are smarter than Conservatives in general. Type in '2004 Election by IQ' into Google or some other search engine.
2. Liberals are more stable than conservatives when it comes to family and the like. In New England, the most liberal part of the country, there are 2.4 divorces per 1000 people. In Texas, there are 4.2 divorces per 1000 people. In the Bible belt, divorce is at the highest rates in the country.
3. Liberals believe in strict economic laws and loose laws dealing with personal freedoms. Abortion, DUH. If you don't want to get one, don't get it. Seriously, some radical christian families in the midwest are living in trailers with six or seven
half-starved children because they are anti-condom, anti-abortion fundamentalists who are lobbying to have the supposedly "immoral" rights outlawed. Yet they fail to realize that abortions keep mistakes from happening (rape and perverted incest) and that they are in a dogshit condition because they don't know that the average child costs about $220,000.
the average wage and marriage age in the south and bible belt is lower than those in the north, mainly california, oregona, new england, DC, washington. blue states. More blue staters have completed college than red-staters.
"The liberals from Massachusetts have long prided themselves on their emphasis on education, and it has paid off: People who stay in school longer get married at a later age, when they are more mature, are more likely to secure a better job, and job income increases with each level of formal education. As a result, Massachusetts also leads in per capita and family income while births by teenagers, as a percent of total births, was 7.4 for Massachusetts and 16.1 for Texas."
Boston Globe, or NYTimes. (don't remember)
If you find anything that contradicts this information (proof, really) post it!
Well-off college students that live with their parents and have never held an actual job before (outside of "food manufacturing"). They usually major in communications, sociology, art, film, woman's studies, English, or any other major that doesn't actually require any actual effort or provides a degree you can actually start a career with outside of McDonalds.
The average liberal has read an average of 7 pages from a Noam Chomsky book and has watched 2 or 3 Michael Moore documentaries (usually while baked, how else could you watch Moore?), and thus have declared themselves to be all-knowing and all-seeing about everything. Most hardly ever read a newspaper regularly or have done actual scholarly research. They typically believe that music lyrics are a legitimate source of information.
If you disagree with liberals, they will accuse you of being a racist (even if the topic at hand has nothing to do with race), or will resort to what is known as "guilt-mongering" (it's YOUR fault that Christopher Columbus murdered millions of natives 500 years ago, as an example).
Hey look at those liberal film-majors with their $300 IPods their parents bought them and holding their $5 frappo lattes preaching about how "oppressed" they are in the US. I like their red/olive green Che Guevara t-shirts. It goes well with the Napoleon Dynamite-afros they all have.
5 The VILE person shall be no more called LIBERAL, nor the churl said to be bountiful.
6 For the VILE person will speak VILLANY, and his heart will work INIQUITY, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
7 The instruments also of the churl are EVIL: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.
8 But the LIBERAL deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.
Rev. John Stott (in Basic Christianity) has said: “The great tragedy in the church today is that evangelicals are Biblical but not contemporary, while <b>liberals</b> are contemporary but NOT Biblical. We need faithfulness to the ancient word and sensitivity to the modern world.”
I think it’s important for Christians to use aspects of contemporary culture if they are serious about beginning a dialogue with NON-Christians/Liberals.
