Tea party woman doesn't believe women should have right to vote
Dinesh D'Souza is a Christian conservative who has been hostile to gays and atheists. He has also made a movie harshly critical of President Obama. D'Souza believes that Christianity is morally superior than the humanist beliefs that many gays and atheists possess. He wants to protect marriage from gays. Well, like Rush Limbaugh, he seems to want to protect marriage from gays so he can get married more than once.
He hasn't divorced his wife Dixie, but he is going around introducing people to his new fiance, a new woman named Denise. Frankly, I wouldn't care what was doing in his personal life. That's up to him. But when people like him lecture others on morality and when he works to deny gays the ability to do something that he is going to do at least twice in his life, marry, than I must point out the hypocrisy.
In another story, Janis Lane, president of the Central Mississippi Tea Party doesn't believe women should have the right to vote. Now, I don't know for sure that Janis Lane is very religious, but she probably is since she is the head of a Mississippi tea party. Why she is the head of a political organization when she doesn't believe that she herself should be able to vote, I have no idea. Maybe irony is lost on her.
Now, most of her fellow members I am sure are religious, especially considering that the members of the tea party movement are usually (though not always) on the religious right-wing. A little known fact today is that those who were most opposed to the right of women to vote were the Christian fundamentalists of 100 years ago. The most supportative were liberal Christians or out and out atheists. The most famous suffragists didn't believe in Christianity. So, we shouldn't be too surprised that Lane believes that women shouldn't be able to vote. The Christian right-wing (including women in the movement) believes that women should have inferior status, especially when it comes to politics.
