GOP backs wrong horse, wrong race

I think, therefore, I am appalled that the GOP's response to our country's need for creating more jobs is to get in bed with the Roman Catholic Church, infamous for its cover-ups of sexual abuse.
I think, therefore, I am astounded to see the GOP and Rome collectively pool their patriarchal powers, money and acclaimed direct link to God to deny women their right to choose and deprive them of contraceptive use.
I think, therefore, I find the blatant disregard for the separation of church and state frightening, in so much as I can see the Crusade-like rekindling of the fires that once burned women at the stake.
I think, therefore, as a woman I left the Catholic church years ago and would never support a political party (GOP) that has such an impoverished imagination.
Think about it, the poverty, the home foreclosures, the educational needs, the millions without health care, the need for job creation, and the GOP's main focus is on sex. How Catholic is that!
