The Hypocrisy of Religion


I thought I’d take a stab at something that has been bothering me as of late, hypocrisy. You see religion in general and not just Christianity is full of it. People who see themselves as religious hold some values, but fail to understand what those values truly mean. For example, the issue of people who consider themselves to be Pro-Life. That is, people who call themselves Pro-Life as opposed to Pro-Choice. No more has there been such a divisive issue in the last 40 years, than the issue of abortion. People who feel it’s their place to tell women what they can do with their own bodies. Now this issue brings up quite a lot of hypocrisy, not only by the usage of the moniker ‘Pro-Life’ but merely in their ideology itself.

Pro-Lifers are typically conservative republicans who believe that government is bad, too big, and too over-stepping. People like this believe that government should be reduced to nothing more than a sign that says: Here sits the United States. There is nothing wrong with having an ideology, however outright hypocrisy leads to credibility problems, and such is the problem with the Pro-Lifers. Because anyone who believes government has no business telling citizens what they can do with their healthcare, their money, and their education, loses all credibility if they believe that same government should be legislating what a women should be able to do with her own body.

No Taxation Without Representation, or How The Republicans Intend To Steal The Election With Voter ID Laws


I haven’t blogged in a while because of how I have been feeling, but I thought it would be an interesting topic if I talked about the Voter ID laws going up in more conservative states around the country. The thing about the voter ID laws that gives me quite the chuckle is the fraudulent way in which these laws have been marketed to the American people. Being told that Voter ID laws are needed to stop the problem of voter fraud, a problem that really doesn't even exist.  With over 146 million registered voters in this country, in the last three elections there were just over 2,000 cases of alleged voter fraud. I say alleged fraud, because only about 400 of those cases actually involved voter registration fraud.
