“When religion ceases to be a belief system and turns into a system of application, it is no longer a religion; it is fascism.
Five of the justices who voted to abolish Roe V Wade are Catholic, and the sixth, Neil Gorsuch, is Episcopalian (AKA “lite” Catholic). It is also interesting to note that the three judges appointed by the previous president got their hands on a bible and took an oath to tell the truth and then lied about how they would handle a case against Roe V Wade. Lying to Congress is a charge that should end in impeachment.
And once again, America is left with another mess of tangled laws that neatly divide state separation. For example, several states, including Texas and Florida, have said that if a woman dares to leave the state to have an abortion, they will track her down and send her back to the state to face murder charges, fines and other stupid legal gibberish. giant.
“No state shall make or enforce any law which would restrict the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor should any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. – The 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.
“The purpose of the separation of Church and State is to remove forever from these shores the incessant struggles which have soaked the soil of Europe with blood for centuries” –James Madison
Remember that the United States government does not consider a fetus to be a “person.” This is confirmed in numerous government decisions and edicts; most telling is that a fetus cannot be considered a dependent on your income taxes until it is born.
“If a fetus is a person at six weeks old, is that when child support begins?” – Carliss Chatman, Professor of Law, Washington and Lee University.
“If Jesus wanted a Christian nation, he would have created one, but he didn’t. Instead, he started a church. – Rev. Benjamin Cremer.
“Almost every justification I’ve seen has used Bible verses, saying this country needs Jesus. Respectfully, no, it doesn’t. Christians need Jesus. America needs Jesus. ‘a separation of church and state, the foundation that this country exists in the first place. You can let your religion control your own life, but you are not allowed to use religion to control the whole world. country. -Kristen O’Connell
Some interesting commentaries from the Bible:
Life begins with the first breath – Gen 2:7
The pregnancy of an adulterer should be terminated – Numbers 5:11-31
“Because I know the harm you will do to the Israelites,” he replied. “You will set fire to their strongholds, kill their young men with the sword, throw their young children to the ground and disembowel their pregnant wives. 2 Kings 8:12
“At that time Menahem, starting from Tirzah, attacked Tiphsah and everyone in the city and its surroundings because they refused to open their doors. He ransacked Tiphsah and disemboweled all the pregnant women. 2 Kings 15: 16
“Their bows will also break young men; and they will not pity the fruit of the womb; their eyes will not spare the children. Isaiah 13:18
“14 Give them, Lord: what do you want to give? Give them aborted bellies and dry breasts.”
“16 Ephraim is smitten, their roots are withered, they will not bear fruit; yes, even if they produce, I will kill even the beloved fruit of their entrails. Hosea 9:14 & 16″
I think you have the photo. This god you praise and salute has killed more children and fetuses than can ever be counted. Yet this god does not care about children, babies or fetuses. This god is no more caring than the wolf in the forest.
Go ahead and make laws that only affect Christians. Leave us alone.
Until next month, trust your doctor (unless he’s a religious fanatic) and the scientific community. Ignore the boobies from the margins of both parties. “I’ll tell you the truth, but that’s up to you to live with.”
