Really? that's all it takes to garnish your vote? One paragraph that he makes because its what voters want to hear? Good to know even atheists can have the wool pulled over their eyes.

This might have been the clinch deal in undecided voters.

Who wins, is vital to the world, it was under Republican control that sent the world into a spin, and it takes more than four years to right the wrongs of ten years. In the last four years, Republicans have filibustered 80% of Democrats proposals, to Democrats 20%, and voters wonder why things didn't move forward???

No, not just this one statement, but it is the nail in the coffin for thinking women against Romney - if Obama doesn't win, and by the by, there is a very strong change Romney will win. This one paragraph is vital, not because its what voters want to hear, but because it affects 50% of any countries population - Romney, because he belongs to the mormon franchise, keeps women as walking incubators.

1 Corinthians 14:34-35, Paul wrote:

As in all the congregations of the saints, women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. If they wasn't to inquire abut something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.

It is the loony tunes behind Romney that are the real problem - right wing theists who believe in armageddon, with Romney flip flopping on any given issue, and who want to take away the hard fought for laws, that give women the right to do what they want, with their own bodies. Absolutely vital, and not to be trivialized.

It is just one of the many reasons why Romney should not win. Romney is hiding behind his cross and cloth, just like the many warmongers and charlatans before, and no doubt, the many that will come after him.

Respect Existence - or Expect Resistance

So, thank you Gary Bergeron, and all the other men who support women's rights.

@Anonymous, The title of the photo was not mine, but from the website I lifted the photo from. It's not the ONLY thing why he get's my support, but it's a strong one. Thanks for the comment! :)

@Suzanne, Thanks for your post.
 Women are not the property of men. Women are not a man's "better half" or even "the other sex". A book by Carol Tavris entitled, The Mismeasure Of Women, ( http://www.amazon.com/dp/0671797492/?tag=mh0b-20&hvadid=1457999... ), clearly explains this. It's time to discard the leftover baggage of religious tyranny used to control all human beings!
