Swallowing Trump

American evangelicals are supporting Donald Trump even though he confessed to multiple counts of sexual assault and all manner of swindling. Why? Donald Trump promised to appoint a conservative to the supreme court. Evangelicals hope that will overturn Roe-v-Wade. Then it will be illegal to have an abortion no matter what stage the fetus, under any circumstances (e.g. rape, incest, expected death of the mother, child mother, non-viability of the fetus) and possibly even to ban birth control.

They self-righteously think of this as preventing baby murder. Their religious beliefs befuddle them on the difference between a blastula, fetus and baby. They imagine a blastula has a soul, and a complex inner life comparable to a newborn. It does not. It has not developed a brain yet.

It is just a variant on a blood cell. It is a potential human, just as a sperm cell is a potential human, but it has a long way to go before it has any of the attributes of a newborn baby. In the first month, it is smaller than a poppy seed. At 8 weeks, it looks like a tadpole.

fetus at 8 weeks

Radical evangelicals are willing to bomb abortion clinics, killing doctors, women, children and fetuses all over a tadpole. What nitwits!

Evangelicals are trying to push their religious superstitions on others. It is effectively trying to force others to bow to their god. They don’t believe in religious freedom.

The great irony is Trump was pro-choice prior to the campaign. This suggests, even if he became president, overturning Roe-v-Wade would not be his highest priority. He tricked the evangelicals into putting up with him.

It’’s not a Bug, it’s a Feature

I had to laugh at Dr. Craig Evans when he spun the fact the New Testament was so full of inconsistency and with outright contradiction with the Old Testament claiming the variety made the text more useful across cultures because you could cherry pick from it what you pleased.
