I try to lambast this kind of stuff with satire, but sometimes it just seems too sad to joke about it.
Why do we give any press at all to this ugly social conservative need to impose their view on those who do not agree with them? Why is their right to NOT have an abortion if they oppose it not enough? And why are there so many white men in these protest groups? Why is their influence within their own committed relationship not enough? How are we expected to respect the views of people who have no respect for the views of others?
And how does a freaky guy from a group like this get elected president? How stupid are we that we do not identify this strong anti-democratic tendency in a guy who seeks the position of ultimate democrat? How is his approval rating in the toilet and yet he pursues the wrong side of a very controversial issue? How do we honor the convictions of a person who seeks to pevent us from following ours?
Here's a better headline. Bush to Abortion Opponents: "We will eventually succeed in controlling sinners and infidels one and all. And then we will make them pay." Don't laugh; this seems as slippery a slope as they come.
There used to be a bumper sticker: "I love my country, but I fear my government." Amen.
