_________________________BirFday, but no.
I'd like to center this convo on my funny birthday presents: a grill
and sexy pink panties in size "small" (apparently Niko has not used his eyes lately.)
Instead, I have to use one of these 9 days before the election to do some good. First, I am married. I got married in a catholic church and I am pregnant with a child so loved, it took me 6 months and 2 miscarriages to create. I'd say I'm pretty pro-family.
What is sad and scary is that there is a sizable voting public out there who believes the Republican agenda is serving life and marriage - issues which trump (?) the economy and war. However the claim
has been made that lack of respect for these things is the underlying cause. So. If lack of respect of A caused B, wouldn't you change
direction with your next vote?
Oddly, as liberal as I am (campaigning for Kerry in swing states in the last election, living in Chicago the past six years, choosing a gay godfather for our child and not eating meat since 1992) most of the people in my reach are conservative. Some are actually not voting for Obama because they think he supports abortion. Not true. No one is pro-abortion. He did vote against a ban on partial-birth abortion because it did not include a clause for the life of the mother.
I'm certainly no baby killer and he gets my vote for saying if my daughter is raped it's up to me, our family, clergy and doctors to do what we feel is best. If that means going the Bristol Palin route, then good for us not the law.
Let's talk marriage while we're at it. Christians are worried about defending the family and redefining marriage. Then why don't we make divorce illegal? That would protect the family structure. Or maybe that would rob people of their freedom of peaceful happiness? Rob women of their choice?
How about this: we demand a responsible government to protect our rights to live as we see fit, so long as we don't infringe on the freedoms of others? That's in there
Cool. Now I can cook pancakes and get jazzed about my baby shower. Only five more hours!I'm making Batter Blasters as soon as these fools wake up.
