I was really going to try and avoid all the political crap, this being an election year and all, but I just can't help myself. After hearing all the people who intend to vote for Santorum or Romney and worse yet, Gingrich, I just can't hold it in any longer.
Let's start with Santorum. He says he wants to preserve freedom of religion but never misses an opportunity to share his religious views and how they will affect his presidency. 1. Opposed to birth control. Does he know it's not 1950 any longer? Is everyone aware that he actually said (with his out-loud voice) "a pregnancy that comes from rape is a horrible, unfortunate GIFT". ? OMG 2. Opposed to same sex marriage. Who the hell cares who lives with who? How does that impact you personally? Why shouldn't the loved-one of a gay person have the same legal rights that I have with my loved-one? What possible harm does it do to someone else? 3. Pro-life. Come on, really? Everyone is pro-life. No one likes abortion. But sometimes (and I'm thinking of a teenager or a raped woman) it's a reasonable choice. The point is, it's THEIR choice to make, not the governments. In a speech at Ava Marie University in Florida, Rick Santorum actually said, "This is not a political war at all. This is not a cultural war at all. This is a spiritual war. Obviously he doesn't understand the concept of separation of church and state. What Santorum really stands for is INTOLERANCE.
