  •  Planned Parenthood exists (11+ / 0-)

    therefore it goes against the will of their deity as only He decides  who should be a parent.  Plus, they truly believe that PP is an abortion mill and spends every penny to murder innocent babies to the exclusion of everything else.

    •  well, fundies aren't exactly big supporters (10+ / 0-)

      of contraception either.  Except for themselves and only spoken of in "quiet rooms".

        In my younger years I lived in the South.  My wife and I attended a Baptist church with some friends on some of our Sundays and about half of every sermon was about the evils of "drink" (as they called it).

        Then, on Monday, the state-supported liquor store parking lot was full of what looked to be mostly the same cars we saw in the church parking lot the day before.

        We figured that a lot of folks in our town had the same kind of cars there or something....  :-)

          The town lays across the county line, and the southern county has gone wet. So now they're building a liquor store on the south side of town.

          Mind you, my mother is not upset that the small town is being exposed to the evils of alcohol.

          She's upset that some of her social circle might actually see her at the store. So much more convenient to drive 30 miles to the city and buy your booze in relative anonymity.

          This is my life. All the pain, all the joy it brings. All through the years, the blood, sweat, and tears, my hopes and my fears -- all that has led me to now. This is my life, and I wouldn't change a thing.

        •  ha... funny you should say that (0+ / 0-)

          The county in N. Michigan I was born in was dry for the longest time due to the evils of alcohol preached in just about every Christian Reformed church.  Just one town in the southwestern corner of it could sell liquor by the bottle (there were a few bars, mostly for the "tourists and deer hunters" (ha!)).  That town and its 3 liquor stores were packed most of the time. Even on Sunday afternoons!   Good business strategy...
