Paul Ryan really said this, “God didn’t want us to be able to have unprotected sex that wouldn’t result in pregnancy. That’s not how we were designed and every time someone uses birth control, they’re effectively going against God’s wishes and committing manslaughter. . . ." Paul Ryan: “If There Was A Legitimate Way To Have Intercourse And Not Get Pregnant, God Would Have Included It In His Holy Books”
Toothfairy posted a topic in Quiver Full of PoliticsHe actually said this while Obama was in office bit it's picking up again now. On the conservative radio show ‘Morning In America’, hosted by Bill Bennett, Republican Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan was the guest. Before right-wing radio, Bennet’s previous job was Secretary of Education under President Reagan. He’s also known for being hypocritical: He gambled away millions while preaching morals and values at the same time. Paul Ryan was on Bennett’s showto discuss his House Budget Committee’s report called ‘War on Poverty: 50 Years Later’. In this report, Ryan states that the root cause of continued poverty in America is actually anti-poverty programs developed under President Lyndon Johnson and the Presidents since. Ryan used thinly-veiled, coded language during the interview when he claimed that black men are perfectly satisfied with being poor and do not wish to have a job with a working wage. He also said that previously developed anti-poverty programs by the government and non-profits create a culture of laziness. He expanded on this by recommending that wealthy white people from the suburbs should spend extra time mentoring black people in the inner-city. So the answer for those living in poverty without employment opportunities is to have someone whitesplain the tired old “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” line? http://countercurrentnews.com/2017/01/paul-ryan-black-men-are-lazy-and-the-cause-of-poverty-in-the-u-s/
