For the record, if we could bring a handful of American to the future from 9/11, they would probably beat this Representative to death for saying that. Also, if there is one thing is this country that is NOT under attack, it's religion. Especially the Christian religion.

"This is a right that every American should be outraged, outraged about what this administration and Secretary Sibelius has set forth here on August the 1st," New York Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle (R) said at the same press conference as Kelly. "And as Mike said, August the 1st is a day that we as American will look at as the largest assault on our First Amendment rights.".

No, that would be the Citizens United Decision on January 21, 2010, you stupid cow.

They do know married couples in committed relationships also like to have SEX without risking a child they do not want and/or are able to have. It's not just the sluts.

/For the record I have no problem with sluts, in fact I like sluts.

But if you're married, a child is the holy expression of matrimonial love and should always be welcomed as God's gift to the couple

"I know in your mind you can think of times when America was attacked. One is December 7th, that's Pearl Harbor day. The other is September 11th, and that's the day of the terrorist attack," Kelly said at a press conference on Capitol Hill. "I want you to remember August the 1st, 2012, the attack on our religious freedom. That is a day that will live in infamy, along with those other dates."

Oh F*CK YOU, asshole.

"And as Mike said, August the 1st is a day that we as American will look at as the largest assault on our First Amendment rights."

Because Christians will be hunted down and slaughtered just for praying after today.

i can't worship Jesus openly because that woman over there is taking birth control.

Or something. I really can't get a handle on their argument. Anyone want to help me out?

hubiestubert: Yeah, folks NOT having unwanted babies, THAT'S the real enemy...


To be fair, the type of people who vote for Mike Kelly do not have a shot at getting a decent mate unless they knock her up real good.
 
2012-08-01 05:04:12 PM

GWLush: Is this such a disaster for them because people won't be getting as many abortions?


Oh, but they see every implantation that might not occur because of birth control as an abortion, and everyone that doesn't implant because of natural causes part of the mystery of god.

And the 1/3 of pregnancies that end in miscarriage? More of God's Divine Plan.

More unwanted kids working for under minimum wage in unregulated coal mines.

I don't get this "religious freedom" argument against insurance coverage of birth control. Nobody is being forced to use it. Paying into something that may use money to give someone else something you disagree with already happens all the time through taxes. What about people whose religion is against killing with no exceptions? Do they get to not pay taxes because that money might eventually be used to supply the military?
 
2012-08-01 05:07:53 PM
Yep. Keep electing these backward people to office, America.

Keep proving what the rest of the world already knows.

They would prefer sex to be for procreation only. Or, to put it more succinctly...

Also, FTA: "..and President Obama subsequently announced a compromise in which employers wouldn't be forced to offer insurance plans that cover contraception, but insurance companies would be required to offer coverage to women who wish to purchase it. Republicans rejected the compromise, and subsequently attempted several times to advance legislation to reverse the mandate. "

Why would they have any problem with this compromise? It solves the exact problem they're complaining about. Or are they hoping that employers get to choose whether employees use contraception at all, regardless of who pays for it?

Their goal is for contraception to be banned outright. The "Employer's rights" bullshiat is a smokescreen.

They are still banging the "Freedom of Conscience" drum. Which is an imaginary right where you get to assert your will on your employee's because you're their social better. What dumb founds me is why the majority of conservatives are protestant but are essentially saying that the pope and his cronies should be free to dictate US domestic policy. These are the same people who have told me the pope is in league with satan for fark sake.

FTFY.

The Republican party is self destructing. They're increasingly relying on the lunatics of their base, and as they legitimize the loons, the loons push out the less-loony.

Eventually, the Republican party will consist of two people, each screaming at the other for being a RINO because they refuse to cut off their left foot for being too leftist.

I wish they'd just come out and run with that then. I'm getting sick and tired of the "War on Christianity" BS. Fox News (and my family members who watch it) are convinced that Obama is trying to outright destroy Christianity so it can be replaced with Islam.

Self-destructing or not, supposedly half the country still supports them, so I wouldn't be calling it done just yet.

Half this country is mentally/philosophically farked beyond belief, they hate the idea of social justice and any kind of collectivism whatsoever, so they cling to the burning sinking pile of sh*t.

I'm hoping the end-game of this is that the Tea Party finishes taking over the GOP, while "moderate Republicans" form a third party that eventually replaces the current GOP. Then again, moderate Republicans are now just called Democrats. We need a working two-party system, not Democrats and anti-Democrats.

Okay, fark this noise. I am so, SO relieved that health insurance has to cover birth control. I take hormonal bc to control a chronic disease I have that causes severe pain and my insurance won't cover it because it's a "lifestyle choice". Fark you Blue Cross Blue Shield, I didn't choose to live a life of debilitating pain. Because of my health I can't work very much and while bc isn't crazy expensive, it would be nice to have it covered so I have one less bill to worry about.

I still fail to see how allowing contraception, a way of lowering the abortion and STD rate while encouraging sexual responsibility, is an assault on someone else's religious freedom. It's an assault on your ability to smugly deny someone the right to purchase condoms or pills with insurance, but too farking bad. If you want to selectively choose how you dole out health care, become a witch doctor. Health care is for those who want to help people and make them better, not condemn and hate them and wish them to death.

Some radio personalities would take that as an opening to rant for three days about what a slut you are and demand you post videos of your sex life on the internet. And many would listen and laud those comments.
