Adult Content re: Hobby Lobby
Honestly, I don't know why I'm wasting my time writing this. Probably because I'm stuck inside from all the rainy weather, and I don't presently have a song to work on. Maybe I'm just bored and angry. It's not like many will read this, much less respond with a like, a re-post or a comment.
We're fucked. Why? Gee, where should I start? Because we have too many asinine Republican politicians saying batshit crazy things like:
"It's (birth control) a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be." - Rick Santorum
"If we took away the minimum wage…we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level." - Michele Bachmann
And of course, if their insanity isn't bad enough, there are people out there who actually VOTE for idiots like this, so how f*g stupid do THEY have to be???
And then we have this most recent SCOTUS decision regarding Hobby Lobby. One of the biggest problems - as I see it - is not just that the male justices are Republican ass-lickers, not just that David Green (CEO Hobby Lobby) is a f*g hypocrite because he makes his millions off of trinkets from China, where they DO practice abortion on a mass scale, but that a lot of the people pissing and moaning about this whole situation are incapable or unwilling to make finer distinctions where religion is concerned. And that unwillingness to properly dissect this issue clouds their thinking where any other issue is concerned.
In other words, we'll likely see another shitload of anti-religious copy-and-pasting on the internet when in fact the whole problem is abuse of religion, not religion per se.
Basically, too many people are just too f*g lazy to look objectively at an issue and it's just easier to trash something in a wholesale fashion than deal with specifics. Thinking is hard.
Religion isn't to blame for what happened with Hobby Lobby. David Green is to blame. Justice Roberts is to blame. Indeed, Justice Ginsburg's dissent is quite clear about how a corporation is not a religious organization.
What we have here are people like Green and Roberts who abuse a system of law and mislead people into thinking that the issue is one of religious freedom. This is no different than the open-carry ammosexuals who insist that toting around loaded weapons in public is the ultimate exercise of their freedom. And by so doing, they serve as a bad example of a mature, responsible gun owner. Same way that some weed-lovers give all other cannabis users a bad name.
Green is a hypocrite. Roberts is a lap dog. And neither of those facts has any direct causal link to spirituality, itself.
A lot of women are enraged about this SCOTUS decision, as well they should be, but let us all properly focus and direct that rage.
