Well, I agree with you that as Christians we should be opposed to abortion.  However, Christianity is a religion based on choice and so I support Christianity and not either political stance on abortion.  If we had more Christians in the world, then we would have less pre-marital sex and less pregnancies outside of marriage.

I like taking non-political subjects out of the equation.  Now, which candidate is more likely to take away my Glock 45?
 
CONTROVERSIAL

RE: Abortion

As a Christian, I'm opposed to abortion. I think it's a terrible thing, and something that ought to avoided at all costs.

On the other hand, I'm also opposed to making abortion illegal. There are a number of reasons why, but primarily it is because making abortion illegal won't do a thing to reduce abortion; it will simply reduce safe abortion for all those who cannot afford to go to the doctor who will do it "under the table", or up to Canada or down to Mexico. Outlawing abortion is stupid.

What I'm really in favor of is reducing abortion. That'd done by reducing the number of unwanted pregnancies that happen. And the best way to do that, in my opinion, is comprehensive sex education in the schools, and passing contraceptives out like candy.

Family planning is good. This is why I approve of Planned Parenthood and other such organizations, and why I favor state funding of them. People are going to have sex, and there's nothing that can be done about that. At least the people who are having sex be informed about what they're doing and taking steps to avoid the need to have an abortion.

This is one of the many reasons I cannot bring myself to vote for Romney. To my mind, the right-wing mindset which is opposed to abortions at all cost is not just part of a right-wing "war on women", but an attack on families as well.

I've encountered Catholics who argue that their "religious freedom" is at stake because of the HHS mandate that contraceptives be covered by employer-provided insurance. This is bullshit. Their agenda is informed by the age-old imperative to ensure that women have as little sex as possible unless it is approved by a hierarch in the church.

So... I'm not only voting for Obama because I feel he is the leader more qualified to lead our country in the arenas of enterprise and ingenuity that we will need as we face the challenges of the future, but because I honestly believe he better embodies family values and family rights than Romney/Ryan.

So there.

Yesterday we went to see the new movie Avengers at our local Regal Foothill theater and it was a great movie! However, that's not why I'm posting... When we got into the theater, I noticed that the first drinking fountain I saw had a sign on it saying "Out of Order" and upon glancing around further, I saw that every drinking fountain had the same sign on it.

Now I'm accustomed to Regal's "no outside food and drink" policy, but is shutting down free drinking fountain water really necessary? Maybe I'm getting it all wrong, but as I see it, Regal is saying "if you want water, you will buy our small 16oz Dasani water for $4.50 including an un-healthy dose of BPA that comes complementary with the plastic bottles. Refills are prohibited by way of our shutting down the drinking fountains.

Is it the BPA that has caused mass brain damage in America? That is the only explanation of why we would pay $36 per gallon for bottled water and complain when we pay over $4 per gallon for gas or 5$ per gallon for milk. Do the math folks, it's ridiculous!
