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 confessâ€”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.”
Read the rest here.
This does magnify what I see as gross errors in the thinking of some.
Just to nitpick a bit, Marshaâ€™s husband was Wally and Janâ€™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…
