No shitting around it. The hold up between an accepted deal between Democrats and Republicans to avert a government shutdown tonight is some funding for Planned Parenthood - that's it! That's the stickler. Republicans want to defund Planned Parenthood. Democrats do not. The reason Republicans want to defund Planned Parenthood is because they are against abortion. Why are they against abortion? Well, they believe that the Bible says somewhere that abortion is wrong. Thus, God is against abortion. And it is as simple as that. Our gov't will shut down tonight because some people in power have a particular interpretation of the Bible. Religion really sucks.
Whoever thinks our country holds a separation between church and state is smoking some pretty strong stuff.
