Prudes

PRUDES….Jonah Goldberg:

The liberal media loves — loves! — casting evangelicals as sexually hung up prudes. It should not detract from the basic unfairness of this bias to also concede that some evangelical leaders have supplied their enemies with ample ammo in this regard.

Actually, I don’t think the media makes this point very consistently or very strongly at all. Not strongly enough for my taste, anyway. But if they did, why exactly would it be unfair? Especially if evangelical leader have supplied “ample ammo” to make the case?
