Abortion Laws—No Help Yet for the Forcibly Born.


TheCommonAtheist

My Daughter came home from high school today ready to fight! Anti-Abortion laws are religious laws and have no place in state constitutions. However, 20 states are attempting to pass ridiculous “heartbeat laws.” Georgia and Ohio’s just passed theirs. Ohio’s new law prohibits rape and incest victims from having an abortion. In Georgia, having a miscarriage could result in an investigation. Is this really true? Or reasonable?

Ohio governor Mike DeWine signed the state’s Human Rights Protection Act, which bans abortions as soon as doctors can detect a heartbeat—about six weeks. A law that protects 1/2 of the parties involved, one of which is not yet alive.

The fact that many women do not yet know they’re pregnant is irrelevant to the good governor. Actually, that’s part of the plan—ignorance is embedded in the design of the legislation.

Also from the religious right of contradictions; isn’tit odd…

TRUMP COULDN’T HAVE SAID IT BETTER


The Observation Post

As we know, our beloved, above-the-law President, Donald “Stonewall Maximum” Trump, is not one to account for his violations of civility, humanity or legality, but in case he ever feels a need to make excuses for his base….instincts, he can grab on to one of the following old floozies — I mean DOOZIES — for justification. Imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, he may even want to lay claim to them all — no matter the doozies became noted quotes ere Trump ere heard of them or the quotees (well, maybe he heard of the first one.)

Christian Anti-LGBT Group: Equality Act Will Legalize Pedophilia, Bestiality, Prostitution, Incest, Necrophilia


Scotties Toy Box

I am so tired of this shit.  However these crazed hoards of delusional want-to-victims do react as a vocal army to get what they want.   So if you can, please counteract them with calls and letters of your own to your congress people.   Thanks and hugs.

Christian Anti-LGBT Group: Equality Act Will Legalize Pedophilia, Bestiality, Prostitution, Incest, Necrophilia

Bryan Fischer writes for the American Family Association:

If the “Equality Act” were to become law, pedophiles would have special privileges and protections under the law that you and I would not have. Because religious exemptions are specifically forbidden in the bill, pedophiles could not be prevented by Trail Life USA (the conservative Christian alternative to the Boy Scouts) from becoming leaders of small boys. And if you have a problem with that, you’re the one who is going to wind up in jail.

Churches could not prevent pedophiles from working with their…

Without Religion There Would be Less Sin, not More.


TheCommonAtheist

  • Reverse psychology is a tool for the young and feeble minded? Not really. It works well on nearly everyone (do you want to go to hell) “Don’t do this, and don’t do that, do what they tell you to, don’t want the devil to come out out your eyes”—Roger Hodgson Religion makes me think the founders just wanted to get their freak-on by making everything a sin, creating even greater allure. “We value people and things unavailable to us—things we can’t have”.
  • “Lord give me chastity—but not today—Saint Augustine

    In order for godto pursue the maximum pleasure by proxy of thingshe cannot have, forbidding a natural occurrenceproduces miles of pay-dirtfor his viewing pleasure—it increases the things he observes. And he watches everything—things he cannot touch or experience in this vileworld.

    197 Myths, Ice Melt And Conservative Apathy


     

    Remember when wannabe president Trump tweeted –

    How about Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe, Republican chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, tossing a snowball in February 2015?

    “God is still up there, and He promised to maintain the seasons and that cold and heat would never cease as long as the earth remains.”

    “The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous,” he said.

    Inhofe mocked Obama for saying climate change was a greater threat to Americans than terrorism. He spewed lists of terrorist atrocities and enemy nations, accusing the Obama administration of trivializing national security threats in favour of climate propaganda. Inhofe accused liberal news media of using climate propaganda to create fear.

    Trump blames China, Inhofe calls on God – how does a reasonable person crack these nuts? Visual aides?

    Stunning video documentation?

    Gone are the days when skepticism demanded verifiable truth. Collective denial is a modern reality perpetuated by numskulls with money, power and political agendas oblivious to ramifications of climate apathy. That said, I stumbled upon a list of 197 climate myths at Skeptical Science. I challenge anyone to find a more complete, user friendly resource –
