See? This is what disturbs me the most about politically active evangelicals. They are the new Amish. I get it, they think the rest of us aren't Christian enough. Okay. Whatever.
You can choose to stay away from me and associate only with those who hold to your own (somewhat conflicting) standards. You can educate your kid at home. You can sign your daughter up for the American Heritage Girls instead of those "perversion advocators", the Girl Scouts. You can buy her a stupid $99.50 Girls 'n' Grace doll because the toy company you want to rip off (American Girl) "embraces lesbianism". What?* You can cough encourage cough the girls in your family to stay home, shut up, and keep covered. It's up to you whether you want to use birth control and how you want to pay for it too. I don't care. You can have your silly little email loops where you share all the stupid things that are so ridiculous that you are ashamed for the rest of us to see. Go ahead, bury your head in the sand. Don't listen to fact. Don't bother listening to ANYONE who has a different idea from yours. Be as ill-informed as you want. Vote your beliefs too. Sure. Tell your like-minded friends to vote your beliefs as well. I am seriosuly okay with that.
All I'm asking is this: Don't try to prosletyze to me through my government
*In 2005 American Girl ran a brief promotion selling wristbands that said I Can on them. 70% of the profit from these bands went to three specific Girls, Inc programs that supported "building girls' skills in science and math, developing leadership skills, and encouraging athletic skills and team spirit."
