    Thousands of anti-abortion activists rally at Texas Capitol
    January 26, 2013

    AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry, finding biblical significance in the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, assured thousands of activists at Saturday's Rally for Life at the Texas Capitol that this legislative session will build on past efforts to restrict abortion.

    "The ideal world is one without abortion. Until then, we will continue to pass laws to ensure abortions are as rare as possible," Perry told a crowd. Joined by Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Attorney General Greg Abbott and anti-abortion groups, Perry said he was with "men and women who understand those Biblical stories."

    "When God sent the flood waters, it rained for 40 days and 40 nights. Only Noah and those on his ark survived," Perry said. "When Jesus entered the desert and was tested by the devil, he fasted for 40 days, and he rejected the devil's temptations. When the Israelites went out into the wilderness, they wandered lost for 40 years

    "Last week, America began its 40th year lost under the rule of Roe versus Wade," he said. "It's a tragic time for our nation's own moral wilderness." The Republican leaders reiterated their commitment to building on laws such as those requiring a sonogram before a woman has an abortion and parental consent for a minor to have the procedure, and withholding money from Planned Parenthood clinics.

    Do you like Republican Gov. Perry's analogy with the great flood and how only Noah and the ark were saved?

    Yeah, Republican Gov. Perry and the Texas Republican leadership regularly rely on prayer and Biblical stories to decide policy in areas of science, healthcare, personal freedoms, deciding about women, and governing decisions generally. The good old Republican Party. (They didn't listen to Jindal.)

    I think you are just being paranoid. Do you think the bible thumpers are going to get you? Or do you just like putting down people that think differently than you?

    Not at all. Just an observation. The face of the Republican Party. Fits right in with the religious fundamentalists in Iran, for example.

    The religious right and leaders like Rick Perry are both the face and rank-and-file of the Republican Party.

    I think you misunderstood. He was saying that maybe you missed your calling of being a chinese or russian worker that has no right to choose his profession or negotiate wages. Give up them guns so you can be like them.
