He’s had enough tea

The Teapublicans have spoke again. Steve Pearce, a congressional wannabe, has clearly stated that “the wife shall submit.” Steve — go back under your rock and take your Bible with you.

Mike Huckabee claims that Democratic women want the government to provide birth control so they can live their libido’s dreams. Huck — the women want birth control because their men take government -supplied Viagra and don’t care and know very little about women’s physiology.

The women don’t want 15 children.

The remarks and definitions about rape by several Teapublicans are too ludicrous to mention in this letter. Suffice to say they just do not know what they are talking about.

Being gay is not a punishment for abortion as one Illinois genius Teapartier claims.

Where do these people come from? Why does the GOP embrace them? If these folks are not insane they at least are carriers.

Religion and marriage are two different things

Regarding Joan Murphy’s recent letter:

In all due respect — the Catholic definition of marriage or the Bible’s definition of marriage in the United States is irrelevant. Marriage is legal action. If people choose to add a religious tone to the ceremony that is their right. More than half of the marriages end in separation or divorce.

People go to court with lawyers to end their marriages. They don’t go to a Catholic Church to end their marriage. Marriage is a legal action and the people’s rights are protected by our Constitution.

I’m old enough to remember the definition of “mixed marriages” as unions between a black and a white, between a Catholic and a non-Catholic, and German and an Italian. Glad those days are behind us. “Gay marriage” is here to stay. It is a legal action in several states. Amen.
