"I Don't Mind A Parasite. I Object To A Cut-Rate One."
Yes - that what Iowa Democrats did in a "prayer" last Wednesday at a rally at the Iowa State Capitol. The prayer - reported by hotair.com
- went like this:
"“We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.”
“We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.”
“Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.”
“Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.”"
The prayer also included a little pro-life bashing as well:
"“We pray for women who have been made afraid by their paternalistic religion.”
As the hotair.com
article points out - for a group which has chosen to "pray" to the Lord, this refrain doesn't seem to show much "faith in women to decide for themselves whether to live as Christians and follow its tenets without fear forcing them into it."
This whole scenario is a bit bizarre, don't you think? When I read the news articles, I had a flashback to the "bomb prayer" in the 1970 movie "Beneath The Planet Of The Apes." However - as the hotair.com
article also points out - Democrats ANYWHERE participating in ANY "prayer" could be viewed as "progress." At about this time last year at the Democratic National Convention, the Dem platform committee struck "God" from the platform. Later in the convention, Democrats in attendance actually booed when the platform committee tried to backtrack and add the reference back in.
Only in America.
