A Hard Pill to Swallow: Catholic Contraception Policy

While I laud Georgetown University President John DeGioia’s recent call to civility in light of rabid right-wing attacks on a Georgetown law student, we must not forget how uncivil the Catholic anti-contraception position is. In some parts of the world, it continues to cause more human suffering than any words Rush Limbaugh could utter.  As someone who deeply values Jesus' moral message, I believe this anti-contraception belief has no foundation in scripture. It is not moral. It is not civil.

It is simply, but importantly, respecting human rights by allowing the individual to decide. Insufficient respect for human rights is shown across the world and unless the individual is allowed to exercise their rights then this opens the way for devaluing human rights in general 

The Republican Party War Against The National Park System... Meet Cliff Stearns (R-FL)  Mar 14

the conservatives who oppose reform and progress have used the same kinds of arguments over and over again.There have been (sick) jokes about how Greece should sell off some of their Aegean islands to German (and Wall Street) banksters to end the financial crisis the banksters have helped get them into. Ha-ha. Stearns says we should sell off some of our national parks to the same people.
