Puritans and their Scarlet Letter assist in the downfall of the U.S.

8 November, 2009

Last night the Conservatives in the U.S. proved that they still own this country; with the introduction of an amendment banning the use of federal funds to pay for abortions for any reason, they gave strength to the House of Representatives to pass their bloated, giveaway health plan.  It is morally outrageous that in the 21st century, the religious beliefs of some outweigh the rights and dignity of others.  Our tax dollars are to be used for the good of all, not to impose one’s views on another human being.

Banning the right of women to make choices about their own bodies, their own families, and their own health demonstrates how little we have progressed in the move for equal justice under the law.  I wish I could believe that each of you who support this prohibition will be lining up at hospital doors to adopt the unwanted children born as a result of your petty understanding of the Christ’s message, but we all know that you will turn your backs on them the moment they are born.   I hope that in the fullness of time He will open your eyes to your own sin of pride and that you will find forgiveness. For you have done great damage to your sisters and to the country you claim to love.

Perhaps when the government limits the number of children you may have, you will understand.

Or maybe this time, he will keep his word and not sign this bill if it gets to his desk!

    The house has passed a health care bill.

    There will be a revolt, one way or another.

    Best Regards

    Wow. Nothing this President does is good enough. If he gave us world peace, you’d attack him for destroying the defense industry. If he ended world hunger, you’d attack him for over-population.

      What are you saying? I would love to see him give us world peace and end world hunger, but he isn’t the Messiah after all, so he can’t do it. He can only give us more taxation, richer banks, more debt among other things. Oh, and more lies.

        Really? Compared to what Bush gave us?

          I don’t recall being a great fan of that other one either. Oh, yeah I was too busy to blog at that time.
