Let's see, same sex marriage or christians who murder law abiding doctors just doing their jobs... Gee, that's a tough one, but I think I'm gonna have to go with the murder thing. We'll leave my views on those faggots marrying each other and breeding a whole race of little faggots and butt babies for another day. ;-)
However you look at it, murder is wrong. Back to an earlier post, I mentioned the idea of the "executioner" as still a murderer. I was informed that murder was indeed wrong, but that the person in charge of executing the murderer was in the right. WHAT!!! In the case of Scott Roeder killing abortion doctor George Tiller, I'm sure, in fact I believe I read in the news paper that he was just performing an execution as seen fit by his "god" and that Dr. Tiller was a mass murderer who needed to be punished, (here we are discussing capital punishment again!) In fact, it's institutions like "Operation Rescue" that are at fault here for fueling ignorance and hatred. They (the leaders of this and other programs like it) should be brought to justice as accomplices. They are as guilty as those who pull the trigger, by being the instigators and inciting violence. I believe in an Americans right to peaceful protest, but this behavior is unacceptable. However it is quite understandable given the nature of the "god" these people worship. For the Jews, it's Yaweh, who started as a tribal god of war, smiting horribly those who were not of their (the Israelites who would later become the Jews we now know,) faith or belief. For the Muslims, oh please, that religion is full of "KILL THE INFIDEL!!!" whom of course is anyone who (again) doesn't follow their beliefs. As for the Christians, well they're the ones who set Scott Roeder on the path that led him to murder, so what more can I say about them? Oh to be sure, I'll find plenty!
To the family of Dr. George Tiller, my deepest sympathies. It is an unfortunate situation that could perhaps have been altered by the sad fact that if he'd not been a church goer, ..... Not even in their own houses of worship are they safe from being murdered by their own kind. THAT'S WHAT EVIL IS NAMED RELIGION. This is why I blog against religion. If only it were just a harmless fantasy, but it's not. It is a dangerous and oppressive delusion that, just because it is shared by the majority of the people in the world, doesn't make it any less of a LIE. "Majority Rules" doesn't work in any other insane asylum, and it's not working here in the biggest insane asylum of all!
To Dr. Warren Hern I say: It's unfortunate that you have been put in the same position of having to fear for your life just to do your job, a job that does in fact help a lot of desperate people. Watch your back, your front and all sides, and stay away from churches. They're not good for one's health and well being. Keep up the good work!!!
Finally to Kristi Burton, Regina Dinwiddie (?Dimwitted?) and all the rest of you misguided souls I'd just like to say that regardless of what you believe is the will of your so called "god," keep in mind this one thing. "It" may be alive, but it's not a life until you cut the cord, and if you don't believe it, try not cutting the cord and see what happens. After all, any parasite or other cancer is alive. But it's not a life either. And I believe that the people of Colorado pretty much decided that when they voted against calling it a life at the moment of conception. You see, I've always been a believer in abortion as a means of birth control. I believe birth control is the most available yet least used resource in this country. Whether it's condoms, birth control pill, "morning after pill" or whatever you choose, just stop having babies! Personally, I believe the monetary system of control that I've devised would work. It goes like this:
1st child- no tax
2nd child- $20.00 per year
3rd child- $40.00 more per year
4th child- $60.00 more per year
So at this rate, a couple with 4 children would pay $120.00 per year each year until the children reach the age of 18. When the first child reaches 18 you get to stop paying whatever you were, for that child. First child, no tax, no payment decrease. Second, $20.00 and so on. In the case of "Octomom" and her husband, if my math is correct they would be paying in excess of $1,300,000.00 per year, which is only fair.
There is the other argument which I think is grossly unfair, that a woman has the right to do as she pleases with her body. Why should that apply to one segment only of the population? No one else has that right as evidenced by the fact that this country has terribly outdated laws concerning what one does with one's own body. If not, there would be no laws against attempted suicide, (they can't really punish you if you're sucessful!) no "controlled substance" laws. I mean face it, if it (the government) is so interested in what you're putting into your body in the privacy of your home, (back to those butt babies ;-),why wouldn't it be as interested in what you're taking out?
In the old days we (the up and coming generation of the 60s' and 70's) had an expression that was quite popular: "KEEP THE FAITH, BABY!" Now I suggest we change that sentiment to :
"LOSE THE FAITH AND KEEP THE KNOWLEDGE, BABY!"
And while we're at it, let's all please observe:
