Remember When?

Hey, does anyone remember when evangelicals were pro-choice because of the Bible’s teachings? Yep, just 30 years ago!  Even Thomas Aquinas (yes, that saint guy) believed “life” only started at quickening (movement).  Here’s a quote from  Christianity Today magazine, 1968:

The Law plainly exacts: “If a man kills any human life he will be put to death” (Lev. 24:17). But according to Exodus 21:22-24, the destruction of the fetus is not a capital offense. … Clearly, then, in contrast to the mother, the fetus is not reckoned as a soul.

Hey, remember when conservative Christians generally accepted that there was no geological evidence of  Noah’s Flood? Yep, it was about 100 years ago.

So why all the retrograde thought? Things were reasonable back before everyone and their fundamentalist dog was trying to out intolerance each other. Jesus Of Nazareth has a message for the fundies: He is does not suffer fools gladly.

Remember when UFO buffs were all sure that “the Truth is out there”? Well, some of them aren’t so sure now.

Hey, does anyone remember when tampering with the right to vote was considered, well, reprehensible on a scale somewhere between child molestation and treason? Well, not so much anymore.  Here’s some swing state voting irregularities, already in progress!

Didja know that uncertified, “experimental” software patches have been installed on voting machines in 39 Ohio counties? Yes, that is John Husted’s state, isn’t it? What could possibly go wrong?

The Romney campaign has already been caught training infiltrators poll watchers to mislead voters in Wisconsin. Why would they be told to lie about their partisan loyalties if nothing was afoot?

Well, at least Mitt Romney doesn’t own the company that makes the voting machines, right? That would be too creepy. What? It’s actually Tagg Romney, Mitt’s son, that owns Hart Intercivic, makers of widely used, unauditable electronic voting machines? You’re joking, right?
