There has been a recent outpouring of sanctimonious drivel about abortion, contraception and sexuality, from the politically regressive and fundamentalist religious quarters of the American scene, particularly concentrated around the competition for the Republican Party’s nomination for president of the United States. No satirical comment of mine, nor comical jibe, could ever possibly hope to convey the depth of stupidity, the utter vacuum of intelligence achieved in reality by the actual political and religious personalities preaching their Talibanish American Christian gospel of using government as a tool (dildo?) of patriarchal control over females, fecundity and essentially all traffic passing one way or the other through the vaginas at large in the nation.
One would have thought that the impending world catastrophes of exploding world population and climate change, and the present national crisis of a corrupted economy shattered into a continuing depression for the increasing number of job-seekers and decreasing number of wage earners would be more than enough for politicians in search of higher office to base promissory political platforms on. But, it seems the idiot vote is the most prized demographic, and its pursuit essential. We will have fallen to a deeper level than ever allowed for in Dante’s Inferno if this turns out to be true.
The spirit of the Salem Witch Trials burns in the belly of the Anti-Abortion Crusade. All this set me to wondering what would happen if Christ’s (as opposed to Christian) principles were actually applied to the social situation of abortion in America. The rest follows logically, with agape.
