I have not posted for a while – again, trying to detach from some of the things going on, but sometimes I just can’t do that! This story in Politico just caught my eye, and sometimes I wonder if anybody is really awake out there, and keeping track of what’s going on. According to the story, Ben Nelson from Nebraska, a state with the same population of Charlotte, North Carolina, is threatening to filibuster the health care bill if an amendment, being written by the Catholic Bishops is not included within it. From the story:
“The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, which proved highly influential in the House health care debate, is assisting Nelson and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) in drafting an anti-abortion amendment, and its representatives are meeting with senators, including Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.).”
Have we somehow slipped under some form of christian sharia law while we weren’t watching? Since when does the pedophile – protecting conference of catholic bishops get to write our laws? Why are we giving Ben Nelson this much power? Why isn’t there a massive public outcry over this?
No one with an ounce of sense should respect these people, or give them the slightest access to our legislative process. Those in the christian community who spend so much time trying to control the reproductive process have one aim and one aim only – the subjugation of women, it has been so from the earliest beginnings of the christian church, and remains so today.
Welcome to jesusland!
