If Women Won’t Vote My Way . . . They Shouldn’t Vote

vote

One argument against women voting that I didn't mention in my recent post on the subject is that women lean left. The blog post I responded to mentioned that here: Based on the Bible, it is wrong for women to exercise authority over men. However, women voting can lead to a passing of laws that the majority of men would oppose. One example of this is abortion – more than 50% of men are against it, but more than 50% of women are for it, which is why it is legal. Interestingly enough, abortion is … [Read more...]

That’s Disgusting! Drumming Up Old-Fashioned Homophobia

disgust

Conservatives are losing their stand against LGBTQ rights, and they know it. With the growing number of LGBTQ individuals who are "out" about their sexual and gender identities, it's an increasingly rare person who doesn't know one---and it's harder to oppose the rights of someone you know than to oppose the rights of someone you don't know. The focus on marriage equality has also led to a public relations campaign aimed at shaping public perceptions of LGBTQ individuals, presenting them as … [Read more...]
