Scary Times-

"Birth control is evil and a sin. Birth control is anti-baby and anti-child…Why would you stop your own child from being conceived or born? What kind of human being are you?"

That is the latest word from one of the many anti-abortion groups whose influence is rapidly growing across the country. And make no mistake, they are talking about things like the Pill and condoms, and they want to take them away from everyone, including married couples.

Scary? Looney? You bet. But it's a looney, scary movement that cannot be ignored, because they are gathering strength. There was a chilling article about the subject yesterday on TomPaine.com, here.

Fun facts to make one pause- you would think that anti-abortion groups would champion contraception, right? Yet one of the leading anti-abortion groups has started a program to restrict the use of condoms in AIDS-ravaged areas of Africa. Gee, they're real humanitarians, aren't they?

Every time I see one of these goofy movements start, I think to myself that there is no way this will catch on. Then a year or so later, there they are getting some silly ass proposal passed in a city, county, or state election.

It never ceases to amaze me. Not only are they scary as hell, but I am sure that if you keep your eyes open, they will prevail somewhere here in America.

I wish a scientist somewhere would find a way to make abortion retro-active. We'd know how to fix these nuts once and for all.

I was reading some of that Army of God stuff yesterday. Scary shit. By their logic (using that term *very* loosely), even things like vasectomies are wrong because it puts you in rebellion against god or some such thing.

It's hopeless to argue with them, too. Twisted fucks.

That's going to be my new slogan. You Just Can't Argue With A Twisted Fuck.

Best. V. Word. Ever.

mike- keep your eyes wide open -they're in the White House right now, watching 'Wheel of Fortune' and planning to nuke Iran...

phebes- by their logic (i think i once heard one of them say so) jerking off is wrong, because it wastes "god's gift..."
