Roe v. Wade for men

Read this compelling article on a lawsuit by a fella claiming that his rights are violated by having parenthood forced upon him in a way that women would never face. Here is an amazing quote:

More than three decades ago Roe vs. Wade gave women control of their reproductive lives but nothing in the law changed for men. Women can now have sexual intimacy without sacrificing reproductive choice. Women now have the freedom and security to enjoy lovemaking without the fear of forced procreation. Women now have control of their lives after an unplanned conception. But men are routinely forced to give up control, forced to be financially responsible for choices only women are permitted to make, forced to relinquish reproductive choice as the price of intimacy.

What arguments can the feminists make against this statement?

As Christians, we should believe in taking responsibility for our actions. If you screw around with someone you don't want to co-parent a child with, you must be responsible for any child that results. Feminists have shunned this responsibility for decades--ladies can simply abort the consequences, or go through with them and force parenthood upon their male counterpart. It's amusing now that a man is claiming the same right to avoid responsibility for his actions.

Alabama Church Fires

They arrested two college students for the string of church fires in rural Alabama. Read the story here.

Where's the outcry and charges of "hate crimes"? Oh...they weren't all black churches (and they weren't gay churches) so it couldn't possibly have been motivated by hate.

This is the lunacy of so-called hate crimes. Obviously these two young men were driven by some animosity toward Christians, Baptists or something else that links them together...but we're not going to judge them on the feelings that motivated them because Baptists aren't a "protected class." So BURN AWAY and you'll be punished according to the regular laws on the books.

It's a good thing for them they weren't burning gay bars or their potential penalty would have been much greater.

Teacher Talk

So, according to his lawyer and left-wing defenders, this teacher of "human geography" (Jay Bennish) can trash-talk our president to his captive audience of high school students and this is considered protected speech.

Where are these defenders of our treasured freedoms when a teacher wants to talk about creationism or "values" in the class?

They love freedom of speech as long as you are speaking their language.
