Steve King Hates People Having Sex
Rep. Steve King is radically conservative. King was the only member of Congress to vote against a resolution thanking black slaves for building the nation's capital. King told the media that he wasn't going to let liberals "to scrub references to America's Christian heritage from our nation's Capitol." Does anyone believe that King would have voted for the resolution if there was no separation of church and state?
King is now in an outrage over birth control being required to be covered in co-payments thanks to the new health care reform.
"We have people that are single, we have people that are past reproductive age, we have priests that are celibate. All of them, paying insurance premiums that cover contraceptives so that somebody else doesn't have to pay the full fare of that? And they've called it preventative medicine. Preventative medicine. Well if you applied that preventative medicine universally what you end up with is you've prevented a generation. Preventing babies from being born is not medicine. That's not— that's not constructive to our culture and our civilization. If we let our birth rate get down below replacement rate we're a dying civilization."
"Priests that are celibate"? You really can't make this stuff up. It is amazing how King selectively forgets about the Catholic church scandals. King claims that the human race will become extinct without scientific data to back his claim. What King's true problem with birth control is people having sex out of wedlock. His statement about Planned Parenthood backs this point.
"Planned Parenthood is invested in promiscuity."
King should have the guts to attempt to pass legislation forbidding people from having sex out of wedlock. At least King would be honest about his position. Of course, (King would possibly get laughed out of Congress.) Since King doesn't he babbles nonsense that should not be taken seriously.
