C'mon! They're not even trying any more!
I sometimes chaff at Amanda Marcotte's assertion that men just want to hurt women. Or even that men have an "I poke it I own it" attitude. And since, in fact, most men actually don't want either to hurt or own women, it's a bit offensive that fucking choad-wads like Issa assemble panels of Y-chromosome dil-dopes all selected based on their opinion that, no, in fact, law of the land should be that if they ever manage to poke it they deserve to own it.
Remember, we're not even talking about abortion here. We're just talking about plain old birth control! Sweet mother of pearl!
For those of you playing religious assessment at home check out the official King James rule book.
- Matthew 23:13 "But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
- Matthew 23:4 "For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on [wo]men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers"
- Matthew 23:15 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves."
- Matthew 23:23 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Point being that, yeah, there's a strong sense among people of faith that religion is under assault in America. And so it is. But the assault comes from within. Opposition from without is driven far more by alienation than antipathy.
