This is for Hannah - I wonder if you have read the recently published book, “Freakonomics?” The authors attribute the drop in crime a generation later to Roe v. Wade.

I wish people would stop using the term “evangelicals” when they mean “fundamentalist” or “Christianist” or “Xtian” or “Wackaloon Christian.”

The liberation theologists of Central America that Reagan helped massacre for empowering the poor were evangelicals. The most liberal Lutheran church denomination in America is the “Evangelical Lutheran Church of America”. These people are often very liberal, and often know a great deal more (and are doing more practical things to help) poor and oppressed people around the world that self-satisfied blogheads who don’t choose their terms carefully.

I completely agree with the sentiment of the cartoon, and a large mass of hypocritical loser who simply hide behind a profession of Christianity to mask their bigotry and hatred. And I’m not a Christian (I’m an officially Ex-Christian, signed up for a date with Hell).

We offend our friends and make problems worse when we carelessly throw around terms with very specific meanings that end up tarring a whole bunch of very nice people.

The pathetic loser depicted in the cartoon is an interesting representation of modern evangelicals. Jesus Christ once said that we should love our enemys, todays Christians want blood.

Do you think innocent Muslims are indifferent to our peoples’ deaths? On September 11th they weren’t. When US choppers go down in Iraq they aren’t. They feel really bad about how poor American kids who would otherwise be resigned to poverty have to come to Iraq and die for a meaningless war. They really feel for us, don’t they? So why are we so cruel as not to feel for them?

Frankly, I think we should nuke ourselves to make things right.

They probably fear that if abortion is allowed, they’d run out of deathrow inmates.

Great cartoon.  How ironic that the party in control professes to be pro-life, but only when it comes to certain lives.  What hypocrites.
