Satirizing Moral Confusion

Sometimes satire can be a most effective polemical tool. That is why Joe Carter’s satirical conversation between two women talking about having a fetus is a must-read. Here’s a snippet:

Jan: “Marsha! How are you girl? I haven’t seen you in ages.”
Marsha: “Hey Jan, you’re looking great. How’ve you been?”
Jan: “Just peachy. Hey, guess what? I’m going to have a fetus!”
Marsha (excited): “That’s wonderful! Oh, I’m so happy for you. Isn’t it a blessing having parasites growing in us?”
Jan: “Yes, but I have to confess—I’m jealous. I wanted to have twins too.”
Marsha: “Oh, I only have one now. Greg didn’t get his promotion so we decided to selectively reduce one of them.”

    This does magnify what I see as gross errors in the thinking of some.

    Just to nitpick a bit, Marsha’s husband was Wally and Jan’s husband was Phillip…

    He’s got Marsha married to Greg? That’s just gross.

    Maybe it just adds to the “moral confusion” going on?

    Since Greg and Marsha are siblings by marriage…
