You say that you believe in religious freedom (but apparently only your religious freedom). You say that according to your religious beliefs, women that have abortions are doing evil. Therefore by this reasoning you want to elect representatives that will make it ILLEGAL for a woman to have an abortion. YOU WANT THIS LAW BASED ON YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. How is that freedom of religion? You want the government to restrict the rights of any woman who does not believe the same way you do.
Instead of voting for a LAW that represents your religious views, why don’t you express your religious views directly to the women themselves? If you feel so strongly about religion and actually care for the souls of these women and their unborn children, why don’t you council them directly? Why don’t you share God’s word with them, in a non-violent and non-confrontational way? Why don’t you volunteer at a center run by Christians for women who are dealing with an un-wanted pregnancy? Why don’t you work with abandoned children at orphanages? Why don’t you work at a rape counselling center? Why don’t you council women on appropriate and effective birth control methods?
Instead you seek to elect officials that will eliminate a woman’s right to choose (maybe, if the rest of the elected officials vote the same way). Young girls who are raped by their fathers will have to give birth to a constant reminder of that painful memory. Women who face the possibility of death in pregnancy will be led to a possible death sentence from your law. Women who know beforehand that their baby will be born and live a short life of suffering because of genetic defects will have to face the pain of watching their child suffer and die before them because of your law.
These women do not need your religious views to pass a law so that they might suffer. They need God’s love, and God’s word and the comforting reassurance that God has not abandoned them. You will make a bigger impact on the lives and souls of these women if you reach out to them directly and not support legislation that infers that they are EVIL.
As for Muslims, I do hope you realize you are painting a group of people with a broad brush. There are millions of Muslims living in America today and even more living peacefully all around the world. They do not hate America. They do not hate Christians. It appears that you hate Muslims. All Muslims. Even Christian guys who have dead fathers who were geographically Muslims and gave them a Muslim name. You hate Muslims because they hate Christians. Therefore you are committing the same acts of bigotry and hate as you perceive them to commit.
Some Muslims hate America and some hate Christians. Some Christians hate all Middle-Eastern countries and some hate Muslims.
You do know that Barack Obama is a Christian, right? What leads you to believe he is not?
You also know that John McCain committed adultery, yes? What sort of “fruit” is that? Do you know about his history with the Keating 5 (McCain being one of the 5), a corruption scandal that cost US taxpayers $124.6 billion dollars? Is that “fruit” in accordance with the well-being of this nation’s future?
I don’t expect you to (or even want you to) change your views but I implore you to perhaps take them more seriously. If you want to share your views on abortion and Islam, back them up with facts. If you think Barack Obama is a Muslim, come up with your own citations and disseminate them. If you want women to not get abortions, council them. If you want John McCain to win this election, tell people why you think he is a good candidate, what you feel he will do for this country and why you will be voting for him in November. Don’t just pass along lies about his opponent. It does not make your candidate look any better, it just makes you look worse.
Spread God’s love, spread God’s word. Do not spread your own hate, lies and ignorance, or spread the blind hate, lies and ignorance of others.
