Here we have a new character. Yes, now we have two New York characters.
On my way out of my studio yesterday, I saw some Anti-Abortion protesters. It was outside a Greater Baltimore Medical Center. I have seen these mysogonists there before. They hold up huge signs of aborted fetuses. That kind of attack on women makes me sick. I think there might be a Right About Now brewing in me. As I drove by, I yelled "The Bible is Pro-Choice, you Dumb-@$$!" I can give you 5 Bible verses that show that they are wrong. I think the best (Not the strongest, that is Ecclesiastes 6:3-5) is Exodus 21:22-25:
"And if men struggle and strike a woman with child so that she has a miscarriage, yet there is no further injury, he shall be fined as the woman's husband may demand of him, and he shall pay as the judges decide. But if there is any further injury, then you shall appoint as a penalty life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise."
Then to add to that, Jesus said in Matthew 5:38-39, "You know that you have been taught, "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." But I tell you not to try to get even with a person who has done something to you. When someone slaps your right cheek, turn and let that person slap your other cheek."
If you are near Madison Wisconsin today at 4:30, Dr. John Carlos, who famously raised the Black Power salute on the winners' podium in the 1968 Olympics to protest racial and class oppression, will be making an appearance at Occupy Madison (at approximately 4:30pm) to express his solidarity with Occupy Madison and the #OccupyTogether movement!
Join the International Socialist Organization at Occupy Madison and come meet a true hero of the 99%, then march with us to the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce headquarters to protest their role in the economic and political oppression of the working class!
