Greta Christina: Religion, Abortion Murder, and Reality Checks

In lieu of posting my own writing, which is still suffering the effects of long work weeks during a recession, I am leaving you in the capable hands of Greta Christina, whose commentary on the recent murder of yet another doctor needs no additional comment from me.

Religion has the power to bend the moral compass to the point where people will commit murder in the name of protecting life. Religion has the power to bend the moral compass to the point where people will defend or trivialize or explain away the horrific abuse of children — the literal, physical and sexual, institutional abuse of thousands of actual human children — and still decry putting a nail through a cracker as a vile offense against all that is right and good.
