Save your soul with penguins.

The religious right is so fucking retarded. And nuts. Fucking retarded and nuts. At the same time. Did you know that penguins are an argument against abortion? Yes, that's what the religious right says.

Boy, you know, watching penguins suffer to take care of a big, unweildy egg... damn. That makes me realize that abortion is W-R-O-N-G.

In fact, I won't try to convince you on my own. Let me use the exact words that God's Homies have bestowed upon us to prove thier own point:

Anti-abortionist campaigner Jill Stanek says the nurturing penguins were a stinging lesson to women who contemplated a pregnancy termination.

"I remembered last year's March for Women's Lives in Washington, DC, when pro-aborts gathered to bolster their right to kill babies," says Stanek, in a column on WorldNetDdaily.com. "I thought maybe a penguin movie analogy would help people understand."

Okay:

1) Pro-choice - the belief that women should have the choice to either carry on with or end her pregnancy as she feels is necessary

Pro-abortion - the belief that pregnancies should be ended

The distinction may be fine, but I assure you that one involves the end of the human race and the other involves selective death.

2) What kind of retard says "Hmmm... how can we help people to understand that abortion is murder? Oh! I know. Penguins."

3) At another point in the article, it says "This is the first movie they've enjoyed since 'The Passion of the Christ'. This is 'The Passion of the Penguins.'" WHO LETS THESE PEOPLE TALK TO THE MEDIA?? Do they not have PR people?? Spokespeople?? Hell, trained monkeys would do. I mean, that doesn't even make any sense. The Passion of the Christ is about the crucifixion of Jesus and the events surrounding it. March of the Penguins is a documentary about the mating habits of penguins and how cute the little baby ones are, as far as I can tell.

So... maybe it would be baby penguins being crucified? And I would learn core Christian values? And be a changed woman?

Stupid. And I'm supposed to be doing my stupid media contacts list. And here I am reading this shit. God I hate stupid religious people. You'd never know there were any decent religious people out there with these tardasses running around.
