For being Truth with a capital T, it can be awfully hard.

My dad’s facebook status today was…

I wish you folks would come out and say it: “My religious beliefs are that human life is sacred and god-given, and that protecting fertilized eggs, embryos and fetuses is a must because they have souls, and therefore women must be forced to carry these entities to term, and raise and nurture them, because my religion says a woman’s personal liberty and right to control her uterus is subservient to my religious beliefs.”

And he’s spot on.  It’s hard to hear someone say that they are so proud of their religious beliefs, and then be so eager to skirt around them, and still think that person isn’t above lying.
