This issue is really straightforward. Simply Imagine--Picture: (a
fertilized egg of a chicken)Caption: "This is not a chicken"Picture: (an Acorn)Caption: "This is not a tree."Picture: (an embryo)Caption: "This is not a person."Picture: (Richard Mourdock)Caption: "This is not a god, nor a
spokesman for god, who has any business telling women when life begins or what
they can or cannot do with their bodies."Any questions?
The guys on K Street will never get this one right.It isn't
"tissue"; it's a life.And whenever you talk about taking a
life you always include the family, the clergy and competent medical counsel.
@third try I don't see where Hutterite claimed he did not have a
right to his beliefs, Hutterite did express his views on that belief, which
Hutterite has the right to also do but did at no point say he did not have the
right to them. your are however right it is a "godsend" as
it reveals his true colors before the people go to the polls to vote.
No, Hutterite, Mourdock gets to believe what he wants along with the Catholic
position on the matter. They are quite specific about r and a in their
instruction to Catholic hospitals. See Ethical and Religious Directives for
Catholic Health Care Services (no. 36).And you get to vote against
him if you choose. This public spotlight on his position is...well...a Godsend.
Multitudes of free thinking women will make their voices heard very soon.
Although many women may appear to walk lock step with their husband and their
family political history, strange things happen in a little voting booth.Many recall the long suffering Edith Bunker, wife of Archie. Edith always
anxiously answered everything her bully husband said to her with the words,
"Yes, Archie, of course, Archie". Archie Bunker told his wife how to
vote, and who to vote for. We all witnessed this on the prime time program
decades ago. However, Edith had a mind of her own. She entered the voting
booth as a individual with views and opinions of her very own. We observed Edith
using her common sense and following her heart as she cast her vote. American
women cheered!Archie Bunker was never the wiser.
There's no debate. Faith is what enabled mourdock to say this in the first
place. He gets to be right and no one can challenge him because he gets to claim
'god says so'. No proof required. Everyone can argue about it now but
they don't bring anything more to the table than he did. He believes this.
He has faith. Religion is a divisive poison in our society and especially our
politics. Fortunately, Ann Coulter has provided us with terms we can use to
describe this chap.
