    Depends what day it is, doesn't it?

    I wasn't even talking about abortion rights, necessarily. What about garbage like, "Planned Parenthood? Yeah, we'll get rid of that." Anybody stupid enough to think that getting rid of Planned Parenthood would somehow result in fewer abortions shouldn't even be allowed near a voting booth, much less the White House.

    Yes, but he also said he wouldn't. All depends on which crowd he's speaking to

    I'm blown away that Ann Coulture can actually say that she thinks women having the right to vote should be repealed, and no one really ever even addresses that when she spews her other bullshit.

    That's because most know Ann Coulter is nothing but a media whore that will say anything as long as it keeps her name known to the public. She has no credibility, even with the gullible Republican base (shocking, I know!). Best to just not give her the attention.

    He has said he would reintroduce the global gag rule which would deny millions of women in the developing world access to not just abortion but contraception.

    And the negroes made the choice to be born into the world to do penance for their sins - so whatever whites do to them, they invited.

Or will we all need to wait until Ohio is counted because it has enough votes to swing the outcome? And will the Supreme Court intercede again, making their 9 votes more important than those of all the voters?
    You mean if Romney does indeed win both Colorado and Virginia? Without any of that trio being counted, isn't it 263-235 Obama assuming everything else goes as figured?

    We struggled against apartheid in South Africa, supported by people the world over, because black people were being blamed and made to suffer for something we could do nothing about; our very skins. It is the same with sexual orientation. It is a given.

    Well, a lot of women, non-whites, and non-rich people don't like those other women, non-whites, and non-rich people. (Also, those evil, evil poofs and their poofness, that's always a good vote-winner) It's not just America, screeds about the hordes of welfare cheats is a common theme in tabloids aimed at the working class here.

    What Slam said.

    I know this is what was taught because my dad and his folks are Mormon and they told me so. My dad also believes in Native Americans as the lost tribe of Israel and how all the ones that are alive are the descendants of the bad ones(Nephites or something; it's been a while). Keep in mind my mother(who is not Mormon and believes none of it) worked for Native American Health Services in Gallup, NM for over a year and my dad came along. My dad spent time on the Navaho Res, made multiple friends there, was as immersed in the culture as someone can be, and was not once moved to change his views.

    There are aspects of the Mormon faith that have merit. Their views on people that aren't white males are not among them.

    Well, sorta. As I said, my dad Is Mormon, as is pretty much everyone on his side of the family. My mother is not and rather dislikes the faith.

    I attended church and sunday school for many years and was also Baptised Mormon(only kid who was; my mom pulled us out before either my sister or brother had reached the age of accountability). I may even still be in their records.

    We also had constant visits from Church Elders over the years after we left the faith(and man did my mom and us kids HATE that. They were so damn pushy).

    When I was 19, I also tried and re-establish a good relationship with my dad, which meant attending church services for a number of months.

    So yeah, I didn't embody the average Mormon household, but I've had A LOT of exposure to the church and it's teachings.
