In the Bendigo Advertiser, Mary-Anne Pool of Strathfieldsaye writes:

"Hands up all you Victorians out there who think the practice of child sacrifice to foreign gods is abhorrent.
Yep, that ’s what I thought. No one in this great state of ours would condone the slaughter of children as a sacrifice to the gods.
And yet, is not abortion the sacrifice of an unborn child to the gods of convenience and selfishness?"

....

Uh...

No, Mary-Anne, no it's not. Sorry, you...

FAIL

However, it may be true that letters to the editor of the Bendigo Advertiser are sort of like sacrifices to the gods of idiots.

I particularly like the bit about 'foreign gods' like if they were Australian gods it would be okay

I just wish I'd known there were gods of selfishness and convenience before I filled out the last census form.

That woman fills my head with expletives...
Like the Catholic young man in our local paper this week, who says promoting safe sex just promotes the idea that we are animals that can't control ourselves (?!) WTF? I wish I knew where he lived so I could shout in his face.

You should read the letters in the Advocate in Tasmania, that letter is quite normal, compared to the usual Suzie Wilks is causing our children to go immoral letters of a few years ago...
