First, I always like to define a word I use that can be construed as offensive.
Random House Dictionary defines stupid as “lacking ordinary quickness and keenness of mind; dull.”
I just received a call from a young woman who identified herself as a paid caller for Concerned Women for America (CWA). That alone almost made me hang up but I decided to see what they were selling this time.
CWA is touting the role they played in the House bill that stopped government funding of abortion in ObamaCare. I immediately stopped the lady and told her that was not true.
She said, “You don’t believe the bill stops government funding of abortion?”
I said, “I know it doesn’t.”
She asked, “Why do you say that?”
I asked, “Does the bill allow government funding of abortions for rape, incest, and if a doctor declares the mother’s life is in danger?
She said, “Yes it does.”
I said, “Well then the bill does not stop government funding of abortion.”
She said, “Well sir, I don’t agree with your opinion…” and at this point the conversation got testy.
I replied, “What is there not to agree with when you just admitted that what you first said is not true?”
She started yammering and stammering about ObamaCare funding abortions and no doubt looking at her talking points to counter the death blow I had delivered to her house of cards argument.
I told her that until CWA, Focus on the Family, Family Research Council, and all the other supposed pro-life/family organizations stop touting evil legislation that allows the government-funded murder of some unborn babies I will never again give them another penny.
I strongly urge you to do the same.
The conversation ended when she said she would remove me from their list (which I did not get a chance to ask first) and I gratefully thanked her and wished her a good day.
That was clearly an example of a stupid conversation, in that the woman was clearly “lacking ordinary quickness and keenness of mind” when it came to connecting the dots of government funded abortions.
