    The GOP would like to be but they still have no legitimate political party until their members are elected. The Republican Party, in and of itself, is not part of the United States government. The neo-cons have as much right to declare the liberals as being immoral as the liberals have declaring the neo-cons politically incorrect. Both sides are wrong.

    Conservative Christians are a group to fear IMHO. I don't need to go into detail how they have gathered at abortion clinics and have killed to prevent what they claim are moral sins.
    You're welcome to your opinions of course. I have as much distaste for the religious of any kind as I do for the liberals. I think they're all idiots.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    By the way, the WI bill contains this language:

    This bill requires, except in a medical emergency and except in the situation
    where the pregnancy is the result of sexual assault or incest, that before a person may

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    perform or induce an abortion the physician who is to perform or induce the abortion
    or any physician requested by the pregnant woman must do all of the following:


    So no, if you're pregnant because of a rape, you aren't subjected to the probe.
    We'll see how much mileage the republican written law gets when something goes wrong.

    Yes, but Only those secular and temporal morals and legal ethics, ordained and established by our Founding Fathers.

    Not my intention to see you admonished and I'm sorry that you were reprimanded.

    Could you provide an example of one of those secular, temporal moral, and legal ethics you refer to. Also, only federal morals should be enforced or do you include state and local laws as well?

    That's why I voted yes. The only purpose of government is to enforce morality. That's the only reason that government exists.
    The most basic of lines...the starting point...is where someone infringes on the right of someone else. Those main rights are immediately available in a govt document (yes, govt)...the Bill of Rights.
