Controlling people? That is what the democrat party is all about. Ban free speech, ban religion, ban guns, ban nuclear power, ban straws, ban fossil fuels, ban meat, ban circumcision, ban segways, ban Happy Meals, ban biggie Sodas, ban everything Trump, ban, ban, ban!!!I thought we were discussing "religion" not whether or not you actually believe in God, or some other form of higher power. Religion is a human invention. It is inherently corrupt and corruptible. As long as there is religion, there will be strife as each version believes their's is the one true religion and everyone else is wrong.
In the movie "The Book of Eli" the bad guy is trying to take one of the lest remaining copies of the bible because "it has the power to control men".
Conservatives, on the other hand, simply want people to live their lives the best they can while opposing a procedure which they view as murder.
I assume everyone agrees murder should be banned? (Aside from it happening to Trump, of course)
