The rise of the religious right, and hypocrisy, in the US


So this “super Tuesday” we see Rick Santorum gaining several wins. This is a man whose every position, every potential policy, is based on his interpretation of his god. 

And yet this comes just shortly after the whole moral outrage from the religious right over birth control- insisting there must be seperation of church and state.

Yes- the same religious right who rails against the perceived threat of sharia law in the US- even though this is clearly banned by this very seperation of church and state. And yet now they trumpet a man who will impose his own christian version of Sharia law on the american people.

This small minority of americans has no right- moral or constitutional, to turn America into a nation based on their interpretation of an old collection of stories.

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.

    Totally true. That is the perogative of the states, should the people that live there so desire it. And those that disagree then have the freedom to actully leave.

    • I disagree. While we do have freedom of movement in theory- the fact is many do not have the luxury financially to move to a new location, nor socially to leave their homes- someplace they were born and raised but feel forced out of…to leave friends, families, jobs, and social support networks.

    The hypocrisy is the Commie=left, who constantly pushes for freedom, yet now wants to be in control of womens bodies through CHURCH oriented biz.

    • Really? Control by giving women options and choices? The right wanting to REMOVE the decisions from women?

      • The Mad Jewess says:

        You dont get it.
        In the early 80’s, the seatbelt law started by saying “We would like you to wear a seatbelt” (for the good of everyone, etc.. Then it was, you will be stopped and asked to put your seatbelt on. Next, it was a $22 dollar ticket, now its a serious offense.

        IF the HHS mandate goes through, let me tell ya this much: It will change. It will change to women being FORCED to have babies, and NO contraception.
        Once the govt is involved in the state, it will never end. Govt should stay the hell out of church and likewise the other.

        Women ALREADY have ‘choice’. As you well know-there is NO ‘war on women.’ the war is against men.

  3. The Mad Jewess says:

    If you have an issue believing the war is against men, white men in general, you can look to your OWN sources:
    http://harvardmagazine.com/2002/09/abolish-the-white-race.html
    Excerpt:
    ‘”Make no mistake about it: we intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as ‘the white race’ is destroyed—not ‘deconstructed’ but destroyed.”
    —————-
    It gets really tiring when the Bolshevik left constantly scream “YOU RACIST” and openly call for genocide against whites and especially white MEN. It is a war against MEN, not women-women are a protected status, MEN are not.
