Andrew Sullivan seems to have taken offense that I asked my six questions. (None of which he took the time to respond to actually.)
Rather he chooses to diminish my quest for truth as:
"An ideology; (that) just doesn't fit persuasively with reality. The more reality bites, the more fiercely they stick to their ideology. This is why the Christianist psyche really is the anti-conservative psyche. It is a rigid political ideology, enhanced with the certitude of religious fundamentalism, and deployed with Schmittian ruthlessness. In the end, it must fail. It will fail. And it is failing. All that remains to be discovered is the extent of the human damage it has wrought."
Yet Andy-boy... it is NOT reality. Hence the need for a donor's DNA to make the biological process possible.
THAT'S THE REALITY...
And it is one that no matter how hard you may try to eradicate - until women grow male sex organs and begin producing sperm - will not be ABLE to be ignored. (Of course if they do that - they will be considered men... )
I know Andy...
One more question - this one JUST for Andy Sully:
If Mary was not the carrier of the unborn child, but rather her partner... would the Vice-President and Mrs. Cheney legally be entitled to refer to him/her as a grandchild, barring a legal adoption? What part of Mary Cheney would have made the child a "Cheney" if the roles were switched?
