Republican Hypocrisy and Life

45,000 Americans die each year because they have no health insurance and cannot afford medical care.

The republican (sic) party claims to be pro-life. But whose lives are they for? Newt Gingrich has stated “If the left manages to drive through a bill which is opposed by 65 percent of the country on health care, our commitment should be simple — when we get a majority, we’re repealing the whole thing.”

So 45,000 American people die from lack of affordable medical insirance and Gingrich states he will repeal health insurance reform. What is so “pro-life” about this?

If you are a sentient, already-born person the republicans (sic) do not care whether you live or die nor do they care if you suffer horribly because of some untreated disease. If you are an embryo or fetus you have their love and protection.

I've never really understood religion; you have to accept that certain things are true and those things might seem impossible. So why do so many people believe?

The christian bible is riddled with inconsistencies, contradictions, violence, and mayhem all ruled over by a very vengeful, mean-spirited god. Why does that god, if it exists, deserve anything but contempt?

So I am an atheist; life is simpler that way. I try to do the right thing and not because of an invisible sky fairy who will fry me forever if I slip up. Doing the right thing is what an ethical person will do.
