Where does one even begin with this? Is it really 2012 and women are having to fight for birth control? BIRTH CONTROL!! First off, the Catholic Church is the very LAST organization that should be complaining about being discriminated against. There was NO discrimination when they decided to cover up their unbelievable sex abuse scandal. The hubris of the Catholic Church in that situation should have been the end of them. But the whole ‘God’ thing kept them up and running. And to this day they seem very unapologetic for covering up the rape and molestation of young boys. I have NO empathy for their rights and beliefs. Cardinals and Bishops knowingly put child molesters in other parishes. The Catholic Church is really going to complain about Catholic hospitals/businesses having to include contraception in their insurance package? Those corporations are way more important than the little boys that were raped and sexually assaulted in their own Church. Nope. No empathy/sympathy from me.
The three GOP Presidential candidates have shown such misogyny in the last couple of weeks that it makes me ill. Of course we have to start with Rick Santorum. THE Catholic of all Catholics. Except he’s the least Christ-like. The amount of racism and bigotry he has shown since he entered the race, plus his history in politics have been in direct contrast with the teachings of Jesus Christ. I went to Catholic school. I went to Church three days a week for umpteen years and took religion and bible classes five days a week. I don’t remember Jesus being as hateful as Rick Santorum. Rick Santorum wants you to hate gay people and women more than anything. He believes his Faith and religious beliefs should be the law of the land. Not kidding. Can you imagine if a Muslim candidate wanted Sharia law to be the law of America? There has been so much hate for Muslims in this country that Republicans have started pulling ‘problems’ out of thin air just to have a fight on their hands. I don’t remember one American Muslim ever saying they wanted Sharia law to be the law of the United States. GOP politicians and pundits came up with this, and then stated it as fact. How despicable. And yet there are so many GOP voters that go ahead and believe them, even when the fact is that not one Muslim in America has ever said that they want Sharia law to be our law. Stunning. Santorum said, “There should always be a Jesus candidate.” Except Mr. Santorum is the antithesis of Jesus. If I recall, Jesus was about feeding the poor and helping the poor. Mitt Romney said it himself, he is not concerned about the very poor. Well Jesus was. I’m pretty sure somewhere in the Bible it says, “Blessed are the meek, for they will Inherit the Earth.” Who do these guys think the ‘meek’ are? And that brings me to the point I seem to make every day of my life. These ‘Christians’ cherry pick the Bible like no other.
And Mitt Romney, I can’t wait for you to be the GOP nominee and HAVE to answer for your constant flip-flopping. You really are the guy who says whatever needs to be said at the particular moment. Whatever crowd you’re in front of, whatever reporter you’re speaking to, you say whatever appeases what’s in front of you. That just means one thing. You have ZERO integrity. None. And who wants a President with no integrity? Nevermind. I found this amazing video, amusing really, of many of Romney’s flip-flops. I wish more than anything he would watch this and try to explain it. This guy’s talented. The dude can flip-flop twice in the same interview! That takes major skill. I wonder if all his aides are doing right now is finding ways for him to explain his massive flip-flops. I’m serious. There isn’t one single issue Mitt Romney hasn’t flip-flopped on. No integrity.
And we’ve saved the best for last. Newt Gingrich. Such a horrible person that I don’t even have to prove it. This guy is such a blatant racist and doesn’t even try to cover it up. When you say that President Obama is a ‘food stamp President’, that’s racist. I don’t know why the media is so afraid to call it for what it is. The GOP has scared the media into thinking that calling someone a ‘racist’ is the worst thing to do. No, no. When you say racist things, constantly, you are a racist. He really is the Racist Face of the Republican Party. This guy actually said this:
“Our President is trapped in his father’s time machine. Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anticolonial ambitions, is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son makes it happen, but he candidly admits he is only living out his father’s dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost”
You know what’s worse than that? Americans who said yeah, yeah I bet he’s right. I do believe Obama is having a séance every night to channel his dead Kenyan father to get tips on how to govern America. Oh my God. I do believe this country is very dumb. Extremely illogical and irrational. And I blame Sarah Palin.
