“The Believers” Draft Unjust Laws Against Women!

Imagine that you have one group of tolerant, “live and let live” people and you have one group of intolerant, self-righteous people.  Imagine an issue (any issue) comes up which must be defined and legislation drafted. Which group will say that there is only one right answer and they know what that answer is?  Which group will move rapidly to define the issue based on a very rigid set of rules for fear that the masses will destroy the country. Which group does not need to research the issue or consult with anyone since, according to them, God has already ruled on all issues and it is their mission to spread the word and enforce his will.   It’s the intolerant group, of course.  I refer to this intolerant group as “the believers” because they honestly believe that they are always right because God is their leader and there is no room for doubt.  It is the mission of “the believers” to make sure that everyone becomes a believer; they must convert everyone to their beliefs and if they can’t convert them, they must make sure that they are never allowed to make any of the rules! They devote their lives to making sure everyone lives by their rules, which they will always claim to be God’s rules! Recently, “the believers” have mostly been Republicans!

Unless the tolerant, “live and let live” group is awakened to the fact that there is a group who will stop at nothing to make sure that they make the rules, tolerance and justice for all will not survive.  The tolerant group must at all times protect the rights of all groups to participate in the making of the laws which govern everyone.  The tolerant group does not take to this chore easily since their very makeup goes against making rules for everyone.  Those who make up the tolerant group desire to “live and let live” and making one rule for everyone goes against the independence they cherish!

But, history has shown over and over again that the tolerant group absolutely must at all times be on guard and protect the rights of all groups; whenever they have failed to do so in the past, the intolerant, self-righteous people among them have assumed control and eventually brought about untold suffering and destroyed the freedom and independence that they cherish so much!  Beware, the intolerant group of “believers” is on the march again and the rights of women are at stake.  So, as much as we who worship tolerance deplore telling others how to live their lives, we must stand up and make our voices heard and stop the laws that are being drafted against women in Washington and all across this country before we find ourselves chattel AGAIN!
