Good article.

Farris sounds like a very confused man. It appears that he does have principles but they are of the flexible variety and subordinate to his self esteem. That he considers himself an expert on these matters indicates that he will defend his positions with all his intellectual weapons and eschew the road of humility which is one of Dr. Paul's graces.

His thinking is unfortunately the thinking of many politically active pro-life people with regard to Ron Paul. They are deaf to any appeal based upon documented facts about Dr. Paul and his actions rather than any words he may have uttered. It is indubitable that his two pieces of legislation would have effectively annulled Roe Vs. Wade and enabled the States to legislate against abortion as a crime of violence without the possibility of appeal to federal courts. Only the opposition of people like Farris prevented it happening.

There is more to this than meets the eye. My guess is that men like Farris are essentially authoritarian and enjoy the privileges of power. As such they are easily suborned and this is what appears to have occurred with Santorum and Romney.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
