I take a three mile “speed walk” five days a week. Based on the yard signs I’ve seen in front of one of the houses I pass, its occupants are very conservative. They were for McCain in ’08 and they’ve displayed signs for conservatives in local elections.
But, sorry to say, they don’t appear to be very bright. On the back of one of their cars, a Prius (they also have a Porsche and a Volvo), are two bumper stickers, one on top of the other. The top one looks like this:
40 Days for Life is:
[A] community-based campaign that draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:
- Prayer and fasting
- Constant vigil
- Community outreach
40 Days for Life takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion in America.
So in other words, 40 Days for Life wants to impose its religious views on the women of America and make laws restricting what they can do with their own bodies and their own lives.
Immediately below the 40 Days for Life bumper sticker — and I mean immediately as in less than an inch — is this bumper sticker:
Okaaay. Apparently the blatant hypocrisy going on here is lost on the owner of that Prius.
