Pornrider clueless as NeocON's/American Christian coalition and Us military Industrial complex had taken over the US !<quoted text>We don't live in a "Muslim Country" anymore than we live in a "Christian" one.
Frankly, if we routinely cut the hands off of thieves, there would quite possibly be far fewer thieves.
Does the mutilation of male genitalia through circumcision horrify you too?
Your ersatz horror of Muslim-based Sharia law, in light of the fact that so many Christians in this country would have their OWN religious laws imposed on the rest of us, makes me want to play the smallest violin in the world for ya. I don't see a helluva lot of difference between the intent of Sharia, and the onslaught of anti-choice legislation promulgated by so-called Christians.
"So you're screaming bloody murder about the Taliban regime
Subjugating women....and being too extreme...
And basing legislation on some ancient holy Book...
Does that sound a bit familiar? Here's a mirror - have a look."
And what is your stance on the process of in-vitro fertilization, which DELIBERATELY creates human embryos, only to DELIBERATELY destroy the ones which aren't implanted in a woman? I'd call that premeditated, and if abortion is murder, so is IVF.
My guess is that you give THAT procedure a pass, because its intent is to further the goal of pregnancy, rather than thwart it - but those 'babies' are just as human as the ones in walking-around women.
Evidently, petri dishes just aren't as much fun to control as wombs.
And ex-president/general Eisenhower warned all us Americans about the ever dangers of growth of US military industrial Complex and its impliATIONS AND OTHERS WARNS us all about clashes of Fundamentalism and its interralatins.
President Dwight Eisenhower's farewell speech, January 17, 1961,
(Clash of Fundamentalisms, p292)
"This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence - economic, political, even spiritual - is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.
In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
