Conservative Christian blogger Rod Dreher coined this term: "The Law of Merited Impossibility."
What does that mean? If means that when someone on the Right makes a dire prediction, liberal will usually reply, "Don't be ridiculous - that will never, ever happen. And boy do you bastards deserve what you're going to get!"
Examples? A few years back, religious conservatives argued "If gay marriage is legalized, before long the government will punish schools and churches that don't endorse gay rights." Liberals blithely insisted, " You're paranoid, there's no way that could ever happen. " But it will happen.

See, we religious conservatives DESERVE all the bad stuff liberals assure us can't possibly happen.
