8 thoughts on “Margaret Atwood”

  1. ” other than that there’s no appetite for the United States to become a theocratic dictatorship”

    Oh, that depends on whether or not you view Progressive Marxism as a religion.

    I find the argument that the only way someone could be pro-life is because they are religious to be incredibly stupid and I can’t believe people even bother to make it. The struggle non-religious women have before and after an abortion isn’t religious and yet it is the same struggle all women go through.

    Then there are the reasons women have abortion and how many people alive today fall into the categories Democrats want to abort? Surely these people can have views on life that aren’t religious but based on self preservation?

    The pro-abortion arguments have devolved over the years and rather than developing healthy adaptations, have descending into depravity. They have embraced the indefensible rather than stake out positions that moderates would accept.

    1. By her line of attempted logic, laws against murder are likewise unconstitutional because they’re religious dogma, since the Bible says “thou shalt not kill.”

      I’d like to get in a debate with Atwood and, just to make it fair, argue that most European countries are theocracies because their governments are run by ministers instead of representatives.

      1. Think about what they are saying, there is no morality without religion and anything goes absent religion. I always hear atheists say people don’t need religion to be good people but at the same time they say any prohibitions on human creativity in what actions they engage in is forbidden.

        1. but at the same time they say any prohibitions on human creativity in what actions they engage in is forbidden.

          “Including prohibitions on human pro-creativity actions, so that we must continue to do that which we need to do, so that it gets done.” -Not K. Harris

  2. As if writing “The Handmaid’s Tale” wasn’t embarrassing enough. I read the book and watched the 1990 movie back in the day, and while I found the struggles of Offred compelling, Atwood’s depiction of a totalitarian “Christian” America was clearly far fetched. I’ve attended many different churches, but I’ve never met anyone there who would want anything to do with a place like the Republic of Gilead. There is, however, a system of government like that in the world today – and it rules a good percentage of the world’s population – but it’s not one that Maggie would dare criticize.
