    It suddenly struck me that (mostly) conservative Christians are anti abortion. Killing an unborn child is murder. I am pro life, but at least their argument makes a little sense.

    Yet these (mostly) conservative Christians are pro gun ownership, support the NRA, second amendment, etc. So killing born children is somehow okay, acceptable, the price we have to pay to defend ourselves when the (fill in the blank_______________) boogy men or saboteurs or armies from a foreign country invade our home or country, our own government becoming ruled by a fascist tyrannical dictator, etc.

    That's one of my biggest frustrations with Conservatives. The blob of cells is sacred, but once a child is born, they wash their hands of any compassion and responsibility. They're fine with all the guns floating around and the mass shootings, and worshipping officials who are pedophiles and criminals. It makes no sense to me and that's why I have so little respect for most of them.

    And don't forget the death penalty -- so many "pro-life" people are vigorously pro-death penalty. So they're not "pro" all life, just the life they pick and choose.
