lord of the flies

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 21, 2003

Mona Charen discusses Angela Bonavoglia's The Choices We Made, with special reference to the worldview of Whoopi Goldberg:

At age 18, married, Whoopi had a daughter. But she was soon single again and somehow finding herself pregnant again. It's difficult to count, based on Whoopi's narrative, but the grand total of abortions she admits to having is six or seven by the age of 25. As for Whoopi's daughter, she became pregnant and bore her first child at age 15. "My daughter knew about birth control; she knew about safe sex; she knew about all that stuff. She didn't want to marry the man. But she wanted to have this baby." Even Whoopi dimly perceives that something is wrong with this picture. She doesn't dwell on it because Whoopi Goldberg is equipped with a liberal theology to accompany her liberal politics. "I talk about God because God and I are very close. God gives you freedom of choice. That's in the Bible."

A remark of Kafka is apposite here: "When one has once given Evil a lodging, it no longer demands that one believes it."
