The Religious Right and Terri Schiavo

I have tired of hearing from the media elite that the supporters of Terri Schiavo and her parents are members of the religious right, far right, etc. Check the comments of Hugh Hewitt on the matter, as well as his dismissal of the hackneyed "religious right" terminology, used as an avuncular label for people of faith.

But I was not aware that the "religious right" included the likes of Ralph Nader, Jesse Jackson, Joe Lieberman, or Patricia Heaton.

To loosely quote Jesse Jackson, which I will very rarely do, this issue transcends politics. It is a moral issue. And to try to pigeonhole those who support Terri's right to live into one easily attacked and misdefined group of people reflects a particular ignorance and religious prejudice on the part of the media and the left.

But then again, we all look alike to them.
