The right says Ireland’s abortion ban repeal signals a new victory for paganism

A roundup of editorial on the right. 

1. The Repeal Of Ireland’s Abortion Ban Marks A New Paganism

From The Federalist: “Progress in the name of liberalism has conquered whatever last vestiges of Christian morality still obtained in Irish public life, and Ireland now joins the rest of the western world in its inexorable march toward liberty for license, bereft of religious imperatives like Thou Shall Not Commit Murder.”

2. Marijuana: Big Tobacco 2.0

From National Review: “Making money in marijuana is thus mostly an exercise in manufacturing a public desire to self-harm — a cynical project of a sort we’ve seen before.”

3. Reeducating the Baristas

From The Weekly Standard: “That makes two things that diversity initiatives are good for: dodging litigation and fattening the bank accounts of people who declare themselves diversity trainers.”
