Consider my email inbox. Consider the letters that pour in daily. Consider how difficult it must be for someone—anyone—to write something—anything—that makes my jaw drop open. So congrats to Pastor Joshua Genig of Atlanta's Lutheran Church of the Ascension, who nearly caused me to shatter my jaw on my laptop just now. Pastor Genig had wrote this in a post at First Things:
Who is speaking up for the mothers who, under HHS mandate, have been falsely coerced into feeling that to be a woman means to have “control” of their own bodies?
One little HHS mandate was all it took to "falsely" coerce women into believing that they're not really women if they don't have control over their own bodies. Such impressionable creatures! So easily lead astray! Someone needs to explain to these confused women that the bodies of real women are controlled by Rush Limbaugh, Rick Santorum, Bayer Aspirin, Roy Blunt, Pastor Genig, any resident zygotes, and those child-rape-enabling paragons of virtue over at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
