Oh, fuck off, Cutter....you have no idea who I am or what I stand for, and per-usual, you're totally, absolutely, and completely wrong. It was an analogy, not a political statement. It had no other meaning or purpose other than that. Everything isn't a fucking cipher that needs to be decoded and understood for a deeper, philosophical meaning. A duck is sometimes just a duck and a conceited, ignorant, stubborn and arrogant jerk is sometimes still just...a jerk. You want nutjob, look in the mirror, you elitist prick.
First, it's pretty obvious that analogy is going to draw fire. If you have no agenda, why choose that particular analogy?
Second, the wording you used is actually pretty revealing as to your position.
Third, while people are unique and capable of holding a wide variety of views on various topics, it's typical for the pro-life crew also be pro-gun. For example, every single GOP candidate for president is both pro life and pro gun in order to appeal to the US conservative demographic.
I've never understood why that is. If you're pro-life, you should also be anti-gun, anti-capital punishment, pro-welfare (since poverty often leads to premature death), pro-medicare, etc. etc. since supporting all of those things also supports life. However, beyond some liberal pro-life Catholics I've run into, those folks are a rare breed.
