You know me, I’m blasphemous when I can. Or when I just decide it’s for the best. I’m not blasphemous because I like to tick people off, I just do it to mirror how stupid their beliefs are. Not their religion, their beliefs. There’s a difference.

Today at work, we were told one of our books was inappropriate for children. I won’t say which book or who was suspected of stating that, but I will say that the library has far more racier things in the children’s department than a book with just words.

I’m not a fan of censorship, I’ve said this a few times. Any parents who takes it into his or her hands to police what every child reads is far up on the list of people who piss me off. Raising your children is one thing, raising other people’s children when no one asked you to is down right Republican, if you ask me.

So what’s appropriate? I’m sure no one will state the Holy Bible is appropriate for children. It isn’t. It’s filled up with gross acts, murders, sins, whores, selling daughters for land, incest, nudity, etc.

I find it hard to believe that would get the vote against a few Spanish insults. Just stay away from the entire Spanish section, namely the books dealing with human anatomy and growth. Those books make me blush.

On another subject

Someone shared a post on Facebook yesterday stating the flaw in scientific logic. Namely, that a single-cell organism found on a distant planet is considered life, but a single-cell organism inside the womb isn’t. There’s a hole in this logic that I could drive a truck through, and I don’t know who to drive (okay, that’s not entirely true).

A single-cell organism is considered life, but it’s not considered human life. I know that sounds pretty pro-choice of me, but it’s what I believe. Life doesn’t equal human life anymore than an orange equals an apple because they’re both fruit.

Someone said we’re giving things more rights than people – meaning, unborn fetuses. Is that so? Are we allowing homosexuals to marry yet? Are we building weapons that will track down and kill only the wicked?

My argument was never in favor for abortion, it was in favor of one point. If you’re going to go around fighting for human life, you better fight for all human life, not just selective.

The right state that we use labels like fetus rather than human to justify abortion. I don’t think it’s fair to state that when they use labels like collateral damage in place of innocent bystanders our military just happened to kill.

I might be old fashion, here, but aren’t pro-lifers also supportive of the death penalty? The argument can be flipped to state that pro-choice people are against the death penalty. I’ve known a few who state otherwise. I’m against the death penalty because I don’t see it as a punishment. It’s actually a rather Christian punishment because they believe the person will probably wind up in hell. I don’t by into that. Death isn’t a punishment, it’s a get out of jail free card. A person cannot pay for his crimes by being dead. It won’t heal wounds and restore the wrong he’s done.

With that in mind, I do believe some people don’t deserve to live. Note, that is  nothing like thinking a person deserves to die. No one deserves to die. Death isn’t a gift. Life, no matter where you stand on the argument, is. When you aren’t allowed to live while still being alive is far worse of a punishment than being sent to your death – you’re dead, what do you care?

It just happens that most of my pro-life pro-death penalty are also the same lot that state people are cowards when they kill themselves. It’s a funny world we live in, ain’t it?
