A little rant about religious evangelicals.
The amount of news surrounding evangelical Christians and how they influenced the vote last November is staggering. Now, with a new pope who rallied for President Bush and against Senator John Kerry in 2004 as a cardinal, will the Evangelical Christians have too much political power? Answer: they already did and now they have more. It is really scary to those of us, including myself, who are atheist (me), agnostic, or spiritual in any other way than the evangelical Christians. Get ready for more demonization of the day-after-pill. Get ready for more teen pregnancies. More teen pregnancy means more poverty, which means more government spending, so why do republicans fight so hard against abortion? Oh right, because they are for a "culture of life". I am so sick of the abortion debate; just because a couple of cells have the ability to turn into a life doesn't mean that it is a conscious living human. Maybe we should ban condoms because it prevents the sperm from fertilizing the egg. Plus, I don't understand why there is such a huge push for abstinence only education for teens when the anti-abortionist conservative evangelicals want so much more life. Well, I guess it actually makes sense since abstinence only education will not work in cutting down the number of teen pregnancies so we will be getting a lot more poverty stricken children soon. Whoohoo! Go team Bush and evangelicals!
