Stick This

I get on the train the other day like most do, to go to a job they may or may not like, in a country divided by racial, social and religious intolerance, and I step into a crowded subway car to read this sticker posted on a subway ad. If you can't read it it says:

"Warning: As long as 3500 babies are killed daily by abortion god will not bless our nation."

This is the same kind of hate rhetoric that makes churches protest soldiers' funerals because America is condoning homosexuality. I mean, seriously? That's my threat? And even if this were true what in the heck are you going to do about it? Hey, I have a crazy idea- instead of just spewing disconnected hate speak and frequently visiting cafepress's sticker section, why don't you try to work with the community of people who are trying to avoid unwanted pregnancies in the first place? Oh, and god won't bless us? F@#k you, you sneeze and I bless you. We're all in this together as the human race, and literally lording over this imaginary threat so that we may be blessed, while I'm looking at a direct problem of a rotting homeless person across the way from me who was an unwanted child and needs help in the here and now, is a waste of sticker adhesive. I believe in free speech but not graffiti, so this is what happens to you, sticker.

The sad part is that the religious right is gaining considerable favouritism. People go right for it when they are looking for answers in hard times...

Glad you tore it down. No one needs to be influenced by that rhetoric.
