    RW arguments to this group. For fundamentalists, Christianity is a matter of convenience. They claim this to be a "Christian" nation, yet we have increasing poverty and destitution. That could not happen in a country where the majority really fear an eternity of hellfire if they do not follow the teachings of Jesus. Those who earned or inherited more than they need would automatically give it away. No, they use their interpretation of religion as justification for being greedy and telling other people how to live their lives. Let me see them fulfill their own obligations under their beliefs before suggesting to anyone else how to live a moral life.

    As for abortion being anything else other than a woman's right to have control over her own body is another hypocritical argument from the right used to gain power over others. We see their arguments expand from abortion to birth control and beyond because a woman's determination of her own sex life is a threat to their control. Just as the poor, if cared for, would be harder to control.

    The hypocrisy of the right is again revealed as strip club owners in Florida rub their hands together in anticipation of the Republican convention. They all know that republicans will spend all that money they have saved from not giving it to the poor and spend it indulging themselves in ways they publicly decry. So, take your moral superiority and stick-it.

    The message from the conservative right is clear: submit to our control or be destroyed. Its all about power, nothing about spirituality.
