“I mean, do a group of old white ladies govern what goes on with my balls? No. They don’t. But this is what happens in America. Old white men who believe in an invisible man in the sky get to say what goes on in all women’s vaginas.” – Ned Hepburn, Death and Taxes.
Yet another case of religious politicians using their political power as merely a vehicle for pushing their moronic and harmful religious superstitions into law. They have zero rational explanation for these ideas, other than “God wants it.”
This happens every day in the world. If we don’t fight to keep religion and state separate, we allow these bigots to turn their inane superstitions into law. We allow them to govern us and throw us in jail if we don’t obey their magical sky-daddy.
