People seem to enjoy a good online fight or debate and this war as been great fuel for fodder. Still, I would like to take a moment to fan the flames elsewhere becauseâ€¦ well its Sunday, and I am feeling ornery and I donâ€™t want to talk about the war for a few moments. So hereâ€™s a topic sure to annoy and enflame.
Warning: Take EVERYTHING with a grain of salt. It usually tastes better.
Recently, the senate passed a ban on â€śpartial birth abortionsâ€ť. Now if you arenâ€™t sure what that is, I would suggest looking it up on google and I am sure you will find all you want to know and then some. I will tell you, however that this name was chosen for its ability to inflame the sensibilities of the public. For example, honey is fermented bee vomit however we donâ€™t put â€śfermented bee vomitâ€ť on our toast, do we? Calling honey â€śfermented bee vomitâ€ť is kind of nasty and who would want that on toast? As they sayâ€¦ itâ€™s all in how you say it.
Now, after watching the press on the â€śpartial birth abortionsâ€ť, I began to wonder if everyone in the pro-life (anti-abortion) camp are vegetarians because wellâ€¦ if you are pro-life, wouldnâ€™t logic dictate that you should not kill an animal for food? I mean, donâ€™t animals have life? (Now before I loose you here and you go off on a temper tantrum and call me all kinds of nasty words, keep following my plot, please) I suppose you could then argue that the bible says that God made the animals to be lorded over by manâ€¦ but then I would have to point out your flaw in that argument. What if I am not Christian? What if I am pagan, or celebrate an eastern religion or maybe I donâ€™t believe in God at all? I ask then what right does your religion have to do with influencing directly or indirectly the choices of others? I mean, this is the line old Osama took to deal with the â€śinfidelâ€ť Americans. He bombed us for so many reasons and because of his screwy take on Islam (which, I might ad, not ALL Muslims agree with) felt justified in attacking the US. His beliefs were pushed upon the US.
