Many women are outraged by the Republican Party’s move to reverse Roe vs Wade.    Ire at the Republican Party is misdirected – the Party is just the avatar for a base that Republican politicians are anxious to keep united.   Republican politicians could care less about women’s rights and the abortion issue; as always, their main concern is keeping their plush jobs; and in this case, it means placating the Religious Right.

Let’s put this squarely where it resides.   The roots of anti-abortion reside in the churches.   To fundamentalist Christian and the Catholics hierarchy, the outlawing of abortion in a major step toward their goal of legislating a version of Christian Sharia Law.

For years, Fundamentalist have declared the United States a Christian Nation and have declared God’s laws above man’s laws.   With each step of outrage against homosexuality, gay marriage, abortion…, the Religious Right is trying to consolidate a move toward a theocratic Christian government.

In the fourth century the Catholic Church drove Europe into a thousand years of Dark Ages, where science philosophy and enlightenment were crushed by religious superstition and zealotry.   Now a vocal minority wishes to turn the clock back by systematically integrate religion into government.

If you are outraged by the attack on Roe vs Wade you need to boycott religion.   Call out religion for the bigotry it is, and its danger to our democracy.

If you attend church on Sundays, and are outraged against the reversal of Roe vs Wade, then you need to reassess your values – for they are conflicted.

  1. I agree with you Buzzard - religion must, should be kept out of government. I do not think it will ever happen though. I wonder if religion is just the "currency" that provides "believers" the righteousness needed to justify crushing anyone that disagrees with them.

    I used to think we earthlings could find a way to make anything work if we really wanted. Now, I'm not sure if anything beyond the circle of my life is worth getting my knickers in a twist. I just try to live, let live and dodge all the craziness.

  2. Every woman-hating religion should be abandoned by anyone with a conscience and a brain.

  3. The issue isn't so much believing in a "God" (or cosmic facsimile thereof)'s all these man-made religions with their dogmas, myopic conjectures, and perfunctory rituals comprising alleged "spiritual" connotations and "benefits"

  4. When I started reading the first two sentences all I was thinking was you better refer to the religious zealots. I was not disappointed. Thank you. I keep hoping that if Democrats win next year and take the senate as well as the presidency that maybe just maybe they will pass a tax bill that will make all religions taxable especially if they interfere with government business. But it will never happen. A liberal government is a lazy government.

  5. I so agree with you. Religion is the single most common reason for war, unrest and condemnation. Christian Sharia law is a new term to me, but one I will use again to explain what's happening in America. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, which are shared by many.
