It's All About Control

People smarter than me have already pointed this out but I feel the need to repeat - it's all about control. The religious fanatics/religious right (whatever you want to call them) want to control what you do. They first go after gay rights and abortion rights because they have a moderate level of support there. But they will not hesitate to suppress everyone's rights if it contradicts their interpretation of the Bible.

For an example look at their resistance to the morning after pill and their support of pharmacists who refuse to do their job and provide birth control. As an aside, it's a free country - if your religious beliefs prevent you from doing your job than make the sacrifice and find a new job. I'm a Catholic and my religion tells me I can't eat meat on Fridays during Lent. If I'm in charge of the meat department at a supermarket, should I have the right to refuse selling meat on Fridays during Lent? It's really the same argument.

Another day and another state banning abortion.

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Gov. Haley Barbour said Wednesday he would probably sign a bill under consideration in the state House that would ban most abortions in

The measure, which passed the House Public Health Committee on
Tuesday, would allow abortion only to save a woman's life. It would make no
exception in cases of rape or incest.

And if you think it will stop at abortion (or gay rights), think again. There are plenty of evil things straight people do - most have to do with sex!!!

Shelltrack and Fondray Loving, her boyfriend of 13 years, were denied an
occupancy permit because of an ordinance forbidding three or more individuals
from living together if they are not related by "blood, marriage or adoption."
The couple have three children, ages 8, 10 and 15, although Loving is not the
biological father of the oldest child.
These people will not be satisfied until we teach the story of Noah in history class and base our system of laws around the 10 Commandments.
