¡Hola mi Gente!

Last week, I began what I hope will be the first of several entries showing how conservative politics and religious fundamentalism in this country are putting our children at risk. Just to give you a taste of the black hole of ignorance in this country, I offer the following (all entries are true and nottaken out of context) …

They Actually Said That

When the subject is punishment, the predicate is religion.

“I personally object to vaccinating children against a disease that 100% preventable with proper sexual behavior.” — Leslie Unruh, director, National Abstinence Clearing House, speaking against a vaccine preventing cervical cancer ( link)

“If a woman wants to give birth to a healthy baby, Planned Parenthood kicks her out with a referral slip. After all, adoption is not where the money is.” — Douglas Scott, president, Life Decisions International (link)

“The federal courts, and the Supreme Court in particular, have ‘systematically attacked Christianity.’” — Tony Perkins, president, Family Research Council (link)

“America must pursue a civil society that will democratically embrace its essential moral duties, including… caring for children born and unborn.” — Proclamation of President George W. Bush, declaring January 18th “Sanctity of Life Day” (link)

“Course materials and instruction relating to sexuality or sexually transmitted diseases should include emphasis, provided in a factual manner and from a public health perspective, that homosexuality is not a lifestyle acceptable to the general public and that homosexual conduct is a criminal offense.” — Texas Health and Safety Code 163.002 (link)

“The Parents Television Council does not censor. The First Amendment was instituted to guarantee precisely the type of activities pursued by the PTC: free speech and disseminating information.” — Parents Television Council, which pressures the government to remove “objectionable” TV shows from the air (link)

“Hardcore pornography, or material depicting actual sex acts, promotes the idea that human beings can be sexually used and abused without consequences. If we tolerate pornographic material that encourages people to indulge their darkest sexual fantasies, we cannot act surprised when millions do so in real life as well.” — Daniel Weiss, media analyst for Focus on the Family: “Porn Feeds Human Trafficking,” Denver Post, Op-Ed, January 27, 2006

“We need to yell it to the top of the rooftops that these condoms we’re sending down to you don’t protect you… [You] have a false sense of security. So I think we’re sending the wrong message when we use taxpayer dollars to give condoms out to these kids and we don’t tell them ‘By the way, you’ll probably be dead at age 24 by cervical cancer. But we’re giving you condoms, so go do your thing.’ To me, abstinence is the only way.” — Rep. Jo Ann Davis (R-VA), at Congressional Hearing on Cervical Cancer and HPV ( link)

“When two people of the same sex… adopt children… I think what you have in many respects is state-sanctioned child abuse.” — Radio Host Janet Parshall, on CNN’S Larry King Live (link)

Porn users “give lame justification for their behavior like: ‘It’s harmless,’ or ‘Everybody’s doing it’ By doing this they ignore the effect their problem is having on people around them. This behavior is not OK, it’s not even almost OK. This habit is a perverse and ridiculous intrusion into [a] relationship.” — Dr. Phil McGraw (link)

“[Journalists and politicians like you] are in what we call the reality-based community, people who believe that solutions emerge from the judicious study of discernible reality. That’s not the way the real world works anymore.” — Senior advisor to President Bush, in conversation with journalist David Susskind (link)

“I’m always a little irritated when I hear the criticism of abstinence, because abstinence is absolutely 100 percent effective in eradicating a sexually transmitted disease.” — Former First Lady Laura Bush, apparently utterly clueless to the fact that abstinence fails in 88% of teens who pledge it (link)

If the public can be convinced that condoms offer certain — or nearly certain — protection from pregnancies and STDs, then the [proponents] can argue that the only thing holding people back from free sexual expression is outdated, irrelevant religious restrictions.” — Focus on the Family, on why they must discourage trust in condoms (link)

Finally…

“This is just a short note to express my heartfelt thanks to you and the entire staff of Focus on the Family for your help and support during the past few challenging months. I would also greatly appreciate it if you would convey any appreciation to the good people from all parts of the country who wrote to tell me that they were praying for me and for my family during this period. As long as I serve on the Supreme Court I will keep in mind the trust that has been placed on me. I hope that we will have an opportunity to meet personally at some point in the future. In the meantime my entire family and I hope that you and the Focus on the Family staff know how much we appreciate all that you have done.” — Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, to James Dobson after Alito had been confirmed to the Supreme Court (link)

Yes, these resourceful idiots actually did say all of the above.

My name is Eddie and I’m in recovery from civilization…

    Are you also going to explore the immorality of the lefty weenies like you? The high incidents of aids, teenage pregnancies, poverty due to people like you teaching kids to be irresponsible or that it will be someone elses job to support and raise the kids they have because they were free and fucked till they were blue and dripping wiht disease? After all it must be ok not to be responsible, the man wants you to, but fuck him right?
