Love can come when you’re already who you are, when you’re filled with you. Not when you look to someone else to fill the empty space.

Surviving the World comic by Dante Shepherd. Text reads: “If it is harder and scarier for you to explain to your children why some people love each other than for you to explain to your children why some people should be treated less than equal, you’re doing it wrong.” Beside the picture, Dante stands with his three-week old baby in his arms, pretending to be lecturing it.

Let us set aside the debate about when “life” begins and instead focus on this “Choose God, Choose life”. Funny story, didn’t God kill all the first-borns of Egypt? Sounds like a child-loving deity to me. Allow the “Chosen People” to conquer and slaughter entire civilizations? Check. Destroy almost all life on Earth via a flood? Check. Turn woman to pillar of salt for looking back as he slaughters yet another entire town? Check. Allow his most loyal followers family to be butchered by Satan to prove a point? Check. The Bible sets forth so many dictates for capital punishment and what with the stoning, flooding, slaughtering, smiting, and the like I find it quite tenuous to label the Bible or even God “pro-life”. If there is a God I would like to believe they are far different then they has been portrayed.
