Congratulations, Religious Nutjobs

Religion has turned more thinking human beings into complete moral and ethical morons than any other institution in the world. That is quite an accomplishment and a boost to the argument that atheists the world over have used to condemn any belief in a higher power.

Why moral and ethical morons? Because a woman’s corpse now has more rights than a living, breathing human female. That’s correct: the rights of a corpse to be handled according to the wishes of its former living occupant means that the harvesting of organs from the body, as well as whether or not that body can be used by Science and medical schools, gives a corpse more rights than a living human female who no longer has the right to decide for herself how her living body will be used by the state.

This is sine quo non insanity of the first order. Only religion raised to the level of being a political entity can create this kind of governmental overreach. Only the Republican Party in its incarnation since the Nixon Administration has been capable of such mendacious and destructive dishonesty. Every Republican in support of this ruling has become a de facto enemy of Constitutional government in these United States.

I've won a couple of minor awards, my second being a speech I wrote for the VFW about why I care about America. It won and I made 25 bucks. Now I'm in IT.
