  1. That is hilarious that they are recalling the Pink Bibles. At least it would be, if it wasn't so sad.

    I guess that is an uncomfortable shattering of their myth that Planned Parenthood only exists for abortions! :-)

  2. Loved the She Wired piece. Makes perfect sense. Problem is, the people she addresses aren't too keen on logic. And then there's Newt ... he continues to entertain. Thanks again Ahab.

  3. Wise Fool -- Planned Parenthood is so anathema to these people that they'll do anything to spite it, like this silliness with the pink bibles.

    Donna -- Sad but true. Trying to reason with people like that can be an exercise in futility.

  4. Ahab, I'm waiting for our Evangelical friends to tackle the social evils of drug cartels, street gangs, and mafias. But instead, they attack gays. I just don't understand.

  5. Paul -- Yeah, you'd think they'd focus on ACTUAL problems in the world instead of harmless scapegoats.
