Tea Party Prevarication

Prevarication: to speak or act in an evasive way; origins in the Latin praevaricat– ‘walked crookedly, deviated.’ Here is a straight shot, employing great logic, with great consequences in a blog posting at Desiring God.

“Tea Party Prevarication” by John Piper

According to the New York Times “The Tea Party leaders . . . deliberately avoid discussion of issues like . . . abortion. . . . [They] argue that the country can ill afford the discussion about social issues when it is passing on enormous debts to future generations.”

Let me see if I understand this term “ill afford”.

Is this it? Enormous debt will hurt our children and grandchildren. Therefore don’t talk about the lawfulness of whether they can be killed.

Something like that?
