Some Humans Are Simply Irredeemable

I was in a discussion about the inhumanity of man and felt it necessary to respond to someone trying to blame conservative Republicans and "tea baggers" for fostering the ridiculous idea that it is God's will when a woman is raped and gets pregnant as a result of that violent traumatic experience on her life.

This well intentioned person was trying to make a political issue out of a criminal act and it simply got to me. I kind of verbally laid into him.

God's will has nothing to do with a woman getting raped and pregnant. And, yes, the misguided soul that thinks this is fodder for a political debate was correct about one thing, only someone stupid would think or believe such a thing was the result of God's will. But, I have to add that only someone stupid or incredibly insensitive would try to make a political issue out of it. It was a man's will to rape a woman, not some God's.

It's time we humans grew up and started taking responsibility for our own actions. The days of blaming a god or devil are done. It is also time for all of us to grow the hell up and quit making these kinds of criminal and inhumane acts of mankind a springboard for a political agenda and platform. This has nothing to do with Democrats, Republicans, "tea baggers," liberals or conservatives and lowering it to that level only demeans and makes it worse. It does little or nothing to address the real problem. It has to do with certain despicable, lowlife, unrepentant, unchanging and irredeemable human beings who need to be put down like the rabid animals they are....no more, no less.

They frown on putting down elected officials . . .

. . . although, for the life of me, I can't understand why.

Seriously, one has little choice but to take note of the attitude of some elected officials toward women, especially relating to the despicable acts perpetrated upon them.

To blame god, arguably a figment of people's imagination, is certainly silly . . . but so is making claims, deriving from belief in such an imaginary being, which go counter to well-established medical knowledge.

To that end, perhaps we could agree the best solution is, in fact, to live life based on what we can know and confirm.

. . . I know; that's just crazy talk to many. So many, in fact, that it's kind of depressing.
