People like to frame a lot of our views as if they’re the exact opposite of their own views.

One Extreme: Endorse religion on money, in the pledge, etc. eg. One Nation Under God
The other extreme: Don’t use the government to promote any religious view

One Extreme: Only straight people can get married
The other extreme: Everyone can get married

This gives them a certain advantage. It lets them say things like:
. You’re just as fundamentalist as I am.
. You’re trying to force your views on everyone else, just like me.

However, our views aren’t the other extreme. They’re the neutral stance.
One Extreme: Endorse religion on money, in the pledge, etc. eg. One Nation Under God
Neutral: Don’t use the government to promote any religious view
The other extreme: Endorse atheism on the money and in the pledge, etc. EG: One Nation Without God/s

One Extreme: Only straight people can get married
Neutral: Everyone can get married
The other extreme:Only gay people can get married

“Only gay people can get married.”
But almost nobody is arguing for these, because we’re not bigots trying to force our views on other people. They are.

*There are spelling errors in this, like in your Bible/Qoran/Torah/Book of Morman… there are hundreds of holy books.
If you want a book relatively free of spelling errors read a dictionary (the zebra did it).


Republicans for Rape:They actually believe this shit!

I’m as pro-life as a person gets. You’re not going to have a truce.” Paul Ryan
(On why abortion should be banned even in the case of rape, incest or endangering a woman’s health. When asked about jailing women for having an abortion he said. “If it’s illegal, it’s illegal.”

“Rape is kinda like the weather. If it’s inevitable, relax and enjoy it.” Clayton Williams 1990 candidate for Texas governor.

“Concern for rape victims is a red herring because conceptions from rape occur with approximately the same frequency as snowfall in Miami.”
Federal Judge James Holms, a bush appointee

“The facts show that people who are raped – who are truly raped – the juices don’t flow, the body functions don’t work and they don’t get pregnant.”
Republican Rep. Stephen Friend

“I would hope that when a woman goes into a physician with a rape issue, that physician will indeed ask her about perhaps her marriage, was this pregnancy caused by normal relations in a marriage or was it truly caused by a rape?”
Republican Sen. Chuck Winder

“First or all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare… if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down.”
Republic Rep. Todd Akin

The Dawk

After sleeping through a hundred million centuries we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color, bountiful with life.
Within decades we must close our eyes again. Isn’t it a noble and enlightened way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at understanding the universe and how we have come to wake up in it?
This is how I answer when I am asked – as I am surprisingly often – why I bother to get up in the mornings.


Conservative “thought”.

E=mc² is Einstein’s famous formula which asserts that the energy (E) which makes up the matter in any body is equal to the square of the speed of light (c²) times the mass (m) of that body.[1] It is a meaningless, almost nonsensical, statement that purports to relate all matter to light. In fact, no theory has successfully unified the laws governing mass (i.e., gravity) with the laws governing light (i.e., electromagnetism), and numerous attempts to derive E=mc² in general from first principles have failed. Political pressure, however, has since made it impossible for anyone pursuing an academic career in science to even question the validity of this nonsensical equation. Simply put, E=mc² is liberal claptrap.

The Conservapedia, they really are fucking stupid.
