Today’s Forum carries a well written letter that outlines the point of view of Bette Grande and why she is using her position of influence to force her religious beliefs on the citizens of North Dakota.
She makes some interesting points and many are probably accurate. But then she wraps it up with this statement:
After-birth abortion is not new, it is not fringe, it is the goal of Planned Parenthood. I wonder how many of the well-intentioned North Dakotans supporting abortion are aware of that goal.
That’s a pretty inflammatory statement. A statement so outrageous that I think we all deserve some documentation to back that up. A mission statement, meeting notes, secret videos, stolen e-mails ANYTHING that would make people like me join forces with her.
(Think Mitt Romney and his true feelings about half of America)
But I suspect the only back up would be from some fundamentalist religious organization who quotes some former abortion mill director who has found religion and mended her evil ways.
Ricky has said for years society pays people to tell us what we want to hear. The likes of Rush Limbaugh make a very good living doing that. I have said for years that religious fundamentalists have a pathological belief that the moment words leave their mouths they become truth.
And sadly, there are scores of people just waiting to believe that truth.
Today’s Gay Agenda: It’s unfortunate that Mrs Grande’s point of opening dialog and discussion may have already had a desired effect of reducing abortion was lost. That seemed reasonable and perhaps even valid. In my opinion, there were scores of North Dakotans reading the paper and reflecting on her statements who then realized she’s just another crazy religious fundamentalist.
