"You cannot qualify war in harsher terms than I will. War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it; and those who brought war into our country deserve all the curses and maledictions a people can pour out." - William Tecumseh Sherman

  God I Hate Conservatives
Note - this posting qualifies as "ranting" and "raving". While there will be valid arguments sprinkled throughout, their will be liberal use of invective and insults. The reader is forewarned.

I just finished reading an article from the AP noting that the Justice department will appeal the ruling by a judge which struck down the partial-birth abortion ban. Leaving aside the whole argument, the judge rejected the bill in part because it did not allow exceptions when the woman's health is in jeopardy. Project the hatred of someone who would deny the woman life-saving treatment when the fetus would die anyways. This is unspeakably disgusting, and the diametric opposite of pro-life. Incidentally, a good website for a rational discussion of abortion can be found here.

But continuing my tangent, I hate conservatives. I hate people who would simply believe that a fetus has a soul, for no reason. Faith is ultimately the most destructive force in human life - it is the blanking out of knowledge and of thought, and it is responsible for all the atrocities that have been committed in history. It was faith in Nazism (helped with generous doses of alcohol) that allowed German soldiers to slaughter innocent children. They saw the young babies, they heard their cries, but they simply blocked all that data out, on faith. Similarly, Christians see the women whose lives will be wrecked by a pregnancy, they can even see the women (and their offspring) whose lives have been ruined without an abortion; yet they throw all this out, and cling irrationally to the idea that a clump of tissue has a "soul".

For me, this is one of the most visceral issues there is. A person who has no regard for the life or happiness of human beings is a monster - but the person who would elevate a clump of tissue or a fetus above that person belongs on a still lower rung of hell.

Getting Bush out of office is imperative in this regard. If we have any Supreme Court appointments in the next four years, Bush will vote in a Christian zealot, and Roe v. Wade will most likely be overruled.
