Dear ________, September 24, 2012
I found myself along the path of this email and I am in agreement with you that Muslimism is a religion – as a matter of fact the word “religion” in effect truly includes any system or set of values commonly held by one or more persons. I might – for example- believe that my “god” is exercise and I devote everything I can to that pursuit. I might define “Exercise” as my religion and defend it – regardless if my religion is rejected merely because it is not on some “list” held by some other group or government. I suspect you would agree! IN REALITY, I AM A CATHOLIC WHO ACCEPTS AND PRACTICES THE TEACHINGS OF OUR CHURCH!
Certain scientific realities, however, are not religious at all. Gravity is a scientific reality that has been defined and refined in definition for all history. If a particular religion holds “Gravity” as some kind of common value to themselves and has even decided to worship gravity, they are not defining gravity but merely taking an existing reality into their value – not so? Thus the truths of the science of biology biology – for example – are not defined by religion, even if certain known religions have taken the truths of biology into their value system. Thus the universal truths of human sexuality which includes pregnancy and birth and growth of the beings which propogate the human race is proven science regardless of religious concurrence – not so?
Now surely, I feel certain you agree with virtually all of mankind, that human beings are the highest level of living beings on our planet. So, for all history basically – we can observe the truth that man/women [along with other living creatures] treasure their offspring. Some of us today argue against these truths under their need to defend a different agenda for dealing with human kind. Some of us defend unnecessary brutality to all kinds of creatures and still justify commmitting homocide to their own children during their time in the womb.
So, in 2012 and for over 2 generations we in the United States have one political “religion” [using my inclusive definition above for the word] which not only accepts the homicide of certain groups of people [like pre-borns] but now is led by a man who demands that every American taxpayer pay for all such homicides and pay to spread this American practice across the globe unrestricted by his State Department.
Genocide has been the sad horror of the worst kinds of dictators for all human history and until the current era, was treated as something beyond comprehension. Now we have a president and his party and a government-paid national corporation in an alliance of death to rid the planet of “useless” innocent lives. …And you want us Americans to vote for this man?
You seem to have little interest in these truths and apparently you pretend it is only a matter of religion. I encourage you to have the integrity [which I do not see in your party] to simply admit your belief in the legalized homicide called “abortion” without apology and with pride!

Please do not include me on these emails. We do not share the same points of view.
I don’t understand how you can make an exception to Islam as a religion? It isn’t your religion, but it is in fact a religion.
Oh, and by the way, you are aware that Tim Kaine (running for senate in Virginia for those of you from out of state) is a Catholic AND a Democrat? He is not the only one…how will you choose??? (she asked sarcastically…).
