The political world gets more bizarre by the day... Two Republican U.S. congressmen are in hot (or cold) water and these are top stories, and, as much as I would love to see all Republican congresspeople lose their re-election bids, I think the current flaps are overblown.
Take that guy in Missouri, for instance, who said that women don't get pregnant from "legitimate" rapes and therefore there should be no exceptions for rape victims when it comes to banning all abortions. He was just saying what he believes: that women should have no rights when it comes to making decisions about their own bodies. As reprehensible a stance as that is, what's more reprehensible is the gang of Republican leaders who are condemning him for saying what they, in fact, also believe -- they just say it using different words. Hypocrites.
In a more humorous vein, there is the congressman who is in trouble because he went skinny-dipping in the Sea of Galilee. Come on, dudes, I bet even the disciples skinny-dipped in the Sea of Galilee now and then! The people who are complaining about him are not so much concerned about where he did it but that he was nude anywhere. I figure that if God had any serious issues with nudity, we wouldn't be born naked, or am I over-simplifying?
