The war is about religion trying to influence our government. According to Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann, we are to live as they see fit.
They are imposing their ridiculous ideas on the rest of us. Then we have the Catholic Church, the institution that permitted child molesting priests to continue molesting. We have Santorum and the Catholic Church coming into our bedrooms and preaching this nonsense about contraception. Contraceptives are or have been used by more than 90 percent of Catholics and by much of the country.
The war is about those who would take us back 240 years with their religious agendas. The Founding Fathers were against the Church of England because of its influence in governing. Whether we are Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist or any other religion, as well as atheists, we all have the right to practice or not practice, but not the right to interfere. There have been state laws passed over the years that circumvent our separation of church and state. They still exist. That's where the war is aimed, not religion, itself.
Never miss a local story.
