The Crazies Who Want To Rule Us And Why They’re Not Qualified
July 3, 2012

Here’s the transcript of an interview by conservative radio jock Laura Ingraham. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to write an essay explaining why Ingraham and the other Conservacrazies, including those already in government, are not fit to be involved in governance at any level, including washing toilets in the local State House. This post will self-destruct in five seconds.

LI: Welcome to our show.

RT: Thank you for inviting me.

LI: You are a minister so I take it you follow the teachings of Jesus.

RT: Yes, that’s true.

LI: If Jesus were here today do you think he would counsel a woman to have an abortion?

RT: Jesus always showed compassion to women. He acted with respect even to the ones who were accused of sexual impropriety. I’m sure Jesus would do the same thing today, and that’s my model.

LI: [Angrily] You didn’t answer my question. So you think Jesus would applaud the murder of millions of innocent children, in the first, second, and third trimester?

RT: We know that abortion existed during the time Jesus was on earth, and for thousands of years before that. If he were opposed to abortion he would have said something about it.

LI: [More angrily] Where do you get the idea that Jesus knew about abortion?

RT: We know that abortion has existed for thousands of years, so I’m confident that Jesus would have been aware. There were many plants used as medicinal abortifacients in that part of the world. And yet his concern was for the way women were being treated.

LI: [Nearly screaming] What part of “Thou shalt not kill” don’t you understand?

RT: The Bible actually says “Thou shalt not murder.” I’m sure you would agree that every ending of a life is not murder.

LI: [Frustrated] Well you have your 40 prayers. I’ll pray for you and this interview is over!

LI: [Hangs up.]

The full story at Religion Dispatches. The comments there are interesting too.

This is a sample of why the Founders insisted on separating religion from the state. And it is a sample of why none of the current crop of Republicans should be allowed anywhere near the White House.

Want An Abortion In Alaska? Then Get A Note From The Guy Who Raped You.
March 22, 2012

No, really, State Representative Alan Dick (who apparently is a Dick in the worst sense) is just terribly worried about… wait for it… his peace of mind, for which he feels he must subject women to insane regulation.

From The Mudflats:

And if you’re not fully convinced yet that Alaska is the next front in the GOP’s war on women, you just have to listen to State Rep. Alan Dick. He said in a House Health and Social Services Committee Hearing last week that he doesn’t believe that when a woman is pregnant, it’s really “her pregnancy.” As a matter of fact, he would advocate for criminalizing women who have an abortion without the permission via written signature from the man who impregnated her. He stated, “If I thought that the man’s signature was required… required, in order for a woman to have an abortion, I’d have a little more peace about it…”   He didn’t say whether a rapist would be able to send his signature by fax from prison, or not. But he’ll have “peace” and women will require a permission slip for their own bodies.

See  more links to legislation proposed by perverted Republican legislators who just cannot get women’s vaginas, uteruses, and all the other women’s sex parts their mommies never told them about, out of their sick heads… make that their sick big and little heads.

It would be a boon to the country if this November the adults go to the polls and shoot the Republican Party in the head so the rest of us can get on with the twenty-first century instead of heading back into the Dark Ages.

The Catspaw Tea Party And The Resurgence Of Ugly America
March 21, 2012

Didja notice that since the Tea Party gained prominence that the country has gotten not only uglier but absolutely atavistic?

People now are fighting over contraception, women’s rights, abortion, race, and welfare. The ugliness of those fights in the past has been revived to little purpose other than to stir up the ignorant passions of the thoughtless elements of the electorate in order to take their White House back from the uppity nigger who won it fair and square four years ago.

But what can you expect from a party that is nothing more than a catspaw for the the wealthy elites who finance it and who want to rule the United States rather than let the people freely choose their governance?

Perfect Example Of “Love The Fetus, Hate The Child”
June 12, 2009

Today’s letters section in the Globe is apparently a sop to the anti-abortion crowd since they got creamed in the letters section the other day. But the mentality of the sicko element comes through loud and clear in this paragraph from one letter:

I wonder whether the members of the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund (“Death of a doctor, life of a symbol”) explored any pro-life alternatives available in the state, such as A Women’s Concern or Pregnancy Help, before sending the 12-year-old rape victim to Kansas to benefit from Dr. Tiller’s services? Somehow, I doubt it.

Yes, that’s so thoughtful and humane and pro-life, isn’t it? Force a twelve-year-old girl who has been raped to carry the rapist’s baby to term. Twelve years old. Yup, let’s punish the little bitch for getting raped and knocked up. After all, she must have been asking for it, right? But it’s just so important that we save that fetus, no matter the price, as long as we don’t have to pay the price. (And in their heart of hearts they know that the second the baby comes into the world it will be drenched in “sin” and worthy of contempt until it is “saved” for the “Lord” – who, not incidentally, allowed the girl to be raped in the first place.)

Pro-lifers are mental. But they whine that their ‘beliefs’ are sincere. Of course they are. And so were the beliefs of the creep who murdered Tiller. Adolf Hitler’s beliefs were sincere. As were the beliefs of that old fart who murdered the guard in Washington a couple of days ago. So are the beliefs of people who believe the Earth is flat, and that AIDS is not caused by a virus. And also the beliefs of some twenty percent of Americans that the Sun revolves around the Earth.

Yup, that’s a good crowd the pro-blastocyst crazies run with. No wonder they think putting a young girl through one hell after another is a good thing.

Vatican Again Demonstrates Its Commitment to Torture and Pain
June 14, 2007

The Associated Press writes that the Vatican is demanding that Catholics should no longer contribute to Amnesty International.

A Vatican cardinal said yesterday that Roman Catholics shouldn’t contribute to Amnesty International because the group adopted a policy calling for access to abortion services for women under certain circumstances.

Cardinal Renato Martino, who heads the Vatican’s justice and peace department, criticized the (AI) policy, saying it represented a betrayal of Amnesty’s goals of ensuring human rights around the world.

A spokesman for the Cardinal insisted that “the cardinal fully meant that individual Catholics should suspend donations to the group.”

With that kind of twisted thinking, we can assume that the justice and peace department is the one the hunts down heretics and tortures them in the bowels of Vatican City.

The truth of the matter is that the Vatican’s old men, still living in the Dark Ages which they helped to create and which they still consider the glory days of the church, would rather see people suffer, be tortured, be imprisoned in horrible conditions, rather than have a single woman relieved of a little clump of cells brought on by rape or incest, or that threatens her life.

The fun part is that Amnesty says it has never received any financing from the Vatican or from official Roman Catholic organizations, defined as those that are an official extension of the Church.

The new policy is part of Amnesty’s worldwide Stop Violence Against Women campaign.

Once again the Pope and his Boys in Red come down on the side of ignorance, hatred against women, stupidity, torture, suffering, and any other evil or ill they can come up with to glorify their pathetic little god.

Rah, rah, rah!
