    Poll Results - Christians will BAN abortion! Hurray!

    Well, my very scientific, and lightly voted on, poll, is now closed, and the results are in. In case you live in a cave with Obama (oops, I mean Osama), the question was, "Whats' the most HORRIBLE thing the Christian Right will do when they get their way and rule the USA?"

    1. A whopping 36% of poll respondents think that they (we?) will make abortion illegal in all circumstances. I would say that given the premise of the question, that would be a reasonable thing to do. Hey, since most of the people who will be having abortions anyway will be leaving the USA when this occurs, I doubt this will impact them much.
    2. Coming in 2nd, with 27% of the vote, you think we'll round up all non-Christians and force them to convert. Well, actually, we have a more sinister plan, which ties into the 3rd place item....
    3. So, in 3rd place, with 18% of the vote, you think we will round up all the atheists and objectivists and send them to our gulag at Gitmo. Well, while this is tempting, we think that Gitmo is a little too nice for these people. We will instead have mercy on those misguided ones and have them watch 7th Heaven re-runs until they convert to Christianity of their own accord, or commit suicide. Oh, by the way, you don't get to watch the Jessica Biel episodes!
    4. In a tie for 4th place, 9% of you think we're going to make sodomy illegal in all circumstances or define marriage as being between a man and a woman. Let me just first state that there is no desire to do the former, as long as those practicing it are the latter.
    Well, there you have it. As I expected, those who fear the Christian Right, fear the loss of a woman's "right" to choose death. I won't comment on this, except to say that science is marching us inexorably to the point where it will become obvious that we can sustain life from conception, amd this will blur people's opinions about whether abortion is murder or not. As for the argument that you can't tell people what to do with their bodies, I will remind that we do that all the time. We tell you what drugs you can take, we tell women they can't sell their bodies, we tell people they can't sell organs for profit, etc, etc. Heck, we even have Liberals who want to tell us we can't put tobacco in our systems (by the way, the Nazi's also banned tobacco, does that tell you anything about Liberals?), and they're telling us we can use trans-fats, and pretty soon, they're going to regulate how many calories we can consume daily.

    . And here is the rest of it.
