Our Governor Sam Brownback seems to think it's incredibly easy to find a job, let alone a job with health insurance - because obviously if we silly, little women want our whore pills we should have to pay for them ourselves.
But here is the problem with that - Jobs are NOT easy to come by. Jobs with benefits are even harder to come by. (Look at the medical field in Wichita - the vast majority of hospital jobs have religious affiliation) What that blow-hard Brownback said was flippin' ignorance.
However, we all know he's a raging douchebag - NO ONE should have been surprised by his outburst. His concern for the Catholic Church and its delicate sensibilities was at the forefront of that entire interview - but I have to ask myself...where are the everyday Catholics?
Do they not understand that by supporting a Church that undermines their fundamental rights - is reinforcing and supporting that behavior? And potentially for a lot of non-Catholics too? Every time you tithe, every time you fill your pill prescription in secret - every time you ignore that little portion of the church's teachings - you are causing the problem. Now maybe the Catholic Church will never change its policy on contraception - but it's quite obvious that practicing Catholics sure aren't adhering to it. According to a recent Guttmacher study - 98% of Catholic women use some sort of birth control - yet they continue to practice and PAY to practice in a church that disallows that behavior. My message to Catholics - STAND UP FOR YOURSELVES! And if that doesn't work - find another Church to attend. Supporting their antiquated view on the subject of family planning is adding fuel to the fire - one that has the potential to burn all of us. The only way the Catholic church is going to change is from within.
Until then - I suggest the rest of us make it perfectly clear that the Pope and his pointy hat need to stay the hell away from our uteri.
