Ok, I think it’s time that we stop using the phrases “Christian values” or “southern values” or “family values.” Or anything related.
Lets investigate to see what these phrases mean. First of all, they are all used synonymously, so lets take “family values.” Conservatives use this to exemplify that they like the family. Or so they claim. Now, who exactly doesn’t like a family? Who wants it to be broken up? I’m not sure. What they really are saying is, that the are homophobic, racist, religious fanatics who force creationism and other religious dogma into other peoples lives.
Doesn’t forcing fanatical beliefs on others kind of seem, anti-family? They are against same sex marriage–against allowing the creation of a “family”–unless it meets their narrow minded views.
Doesn’t talking about how much they hate children being born out of wedlock and that they are the cause of all of societies problems seem, kind of racist? But there’s more. They constantly try to increase this by being pro-life. Oh wait! They did it again, they have created an even worse scenario. They now are trying to make birth control more expensive! What would this accomplish? Well, it would mean that less women have access to them and that there would be more babies being born to unwed mothers! That is exactly what they are “against.”
So you see, not only are their “values” homophobic, they are also vehemently racist and sexist dogmatic beliefs.
Now, I think it’s time we stopped giving the republicans credit for “family values” or “southern values” or “religious values” or anything related. Let’s call them what the are, values of a fucking douchebag, or values of a sexist asshole or values of lets fuck over our friends and lie about it.
You don’t need to be a republican to like the concept of a family. In fact, it seems awfully hard to be a republican and like the concept of a family.
