Ignorance is strength
"We've been attacked by the intelligent, educated segment of the culture," said "pastor and parent Ray Mummert, 54" explaining his opposition to Darwin. Uh. Yeah. That sucks when the smart, educated people attack you. Let's all feel superior for a moment before the full implication of that quote dawns on us and we descend into panic. Of course, all that really matters is unquestioning belief and that's how these folks vote and the age of reason is over. ok, now panic.

In 2003, the government lawyers also cited moral arguments for denying military medical coverage. Prohibiting federal funding of abortions "reflects and effectuates a moral judgment to value all human life, including the life of an anencephalic infant."
The government's refusal to fund abortion "furthers the government's interest in protecting human life in general and promoting respect for life," the lawyers said in their appeal.
If they care os much about one non-brain-having fetus, imagine how much they care about everyone in Iraq. If they're so morally clear that they will defend even the most horrible, terminal, fatal, suffering-inducing, unsurvivable congenital birth defects, then the must be 100% absolutely, positively clear in Iraq. It would certainly be a cynical ploy to draw a bright line in a murky area to pretend that everything behind that line is 100% ok, you know, to imply a moral purity where none whatsoever exists.
For those keeping score at home: Lack of brain = good. Poor = bad. third world = really bad.
