I present to you: The uneducated politician...

I sent a letter to my state representative regarding the availability of contraceptive coverage for ALL people.  Notice I said "availability."  This is the response I received:

Another PhD Candidate Goes Over the Edge

“Here’s an object more of dread / Than aught the grave contains – A human form with reason fled / While wretched life remains.”

Abraham Lincoln, letter to Andrew Johnson, Sept. 6, 1846

 

A heavily armed man explodes a gas canister in a theater, then opens fire,  killing a dozen, wounding many more.  Again, Colorado and the nation are in shock.  The eternal gun debate, which Obama had been keeping quiet, explodes, four months before an election.  There’s…

So I decided to take a look at what science has to say about it and found that not only is traditional abstinence-only education an abject failure (ex: 82% of virginity pledgers deny their pledge later and have just one less partner than non-pledgers), it's also dangerous to the public at large.

Sexual Control in Religion

Why is sexual control so important in most major religions? This is the subject of my next two videos. I just put up part 7 today and will get part 8 up soon. Sexual control is important to religions NOT to help people to control sex but to put them in a double bind - caught between powerful biological drives and teachings that appear to oppose those same drives.

I know you’re a well known defender of traditional Catholic doctrine and values, but there is a problem within the third World countries such as the Christian nation I presently live in. The Philippines consists of hordes of faithful Catholic followers that live in poverty.



The problem seems to be looked at the wrong way by you and your present administration… Continue
