Lowry Makes Us Yearn for the 1950's

National Review editor Rich Lowry insists that those who have warned of the growing influence of religious evangelicals in politics are guilty of "theo-panic." Lowry writes:
The theocracy charge relies mainly on blowing Christian conservative positions out of proportion.

... National Review senior editor Ramesh Ponnuru has pointed out that you can take all Christian conservative positions — including far-fetched ones like banning sodomy and contraception — and if they happened overnight they “would merely turn the clock back to the late 1950s. That may be a very bad idea, but the America of the 1950s was not a theocracy.”
May be a very bad idea?

All of you women out there who take birth control pills, listen up. Rich Lowry wants you to know that even if birth control pills were suddenly banned, it wouldn't be so bad. In fact, it would sort of be a fun, little trip back through time to the 1950's.

Your fears and anxieties would be assuaged by playing bridge "with the girls," selling Tupperware and wearing your "I Like Ike" button.
