Could very well be, and they could very well be right, too.

Or all of the sudden disability rights activists a non-ideological, 
non-religious lot simply because they claim to?

Doesn't it enter your mind  the real of possibility that at least some of 
the disability rights activists are informed by religious and political 
ideas that can be described as reactionary (Republican rigth) and/or 
"papist"?

Or are disability rights activists some kind of special people, completely 
devoid of class and ideological alliangeces, and completely devoted solely 
to advancing the rights of disabled people?

Such views require and incredible excercise in disingeniousness. Yes, what 
disability rights people have to say about the case is important, but to 
claim they have some sort of moral superiority simply because they are 
disabled, and further, to claim they live in an ideological vacuum is to say 
the least, naive.
