Martin Niemoller: “Our concern here, Herr Hitler, is not for the church. Jesus Christ will take care of the church. Our concern is for the soul of the nation.”

Adolph Hitler: “You can leave the soul of Germany to me.”

Words have meaning. My perspective on life was altered when I came to that realization. We live in a nation where we believe every “expert.” We have been trained to listen, but not to think.

We share a common language, but we do not realize that words mean different things to different people. For a greater perspective, read my commentary Change the Words, Change the World.

I used to think that the term “pro-life” meant that a person was against abortion. Sorry Charlie. Most “pro-lifers” are pro-choice…they just think that “life” is the “correct” choice. They do not hate abortion and do not fight to outlaw it.

That’s why so many politicians claim to be “Pro-Life,” yet abortion remains legal. Republicans tend to be “Pro-Life,” but they don’t really want to stop the butchering of babies.

But we think they do. We think “Pro-Life” means “stop abortion.” It doesn’t.

“Conservative” is another one of those words. Most of us here in fly-over country assume that “conservative” is a belief system. In reality, it is just a “position” that political candidates claim to hold. “Pro-Life” is one of those “conservative” positions.

That’s why they break “conservatives” into classes; “social” conservatives, “fiscal” conservatives, “judicial” conservatives, “neo” conservatives, and ironically, “Christian” conservatives.
