Eye-deology/ eh-deology: if you use the word, you've got one

Suddenly, every newspaper and anti-life, anti-family spokesperson is talking about ehd-eology. When did the pronounciation change? About the same time the definition came to mean “religious,” “right-wing,” or “Republican,” I guess.

In the old days, before partial birth abortion became “D&X,” and “human embryos” became “spare,” the word was ideology, pronounced with a long “i.” The dictionary contains both pronounciations, but I can’t remember ever hearing the short vowel. And, as though it’s spreading like a virus, the word is being used by proponents of abortion, “physician-assisted-suicide,” alternative living arrangements, and clone and kill.

If we are talking about the “id,” Freud’s name for the child-like, “I want” part of our personality, I guess the pronounciation is correct.

If you use the word, you are exposing your own “ideology.”
