as an atheist who sees abortion as ritual murder
Your earlier posts gave me the impression that you might view abortion as ritual murder from the point of view of supporting it. Wasn't Sir Francis Dashwood involved in all sorts of occult activities, if my memory of your post serves me correctly?
But isn't it nice, that as an atheist who sees abortion as ritual murder, I can debate the topic within the Republican party and actually have a voice on the issue?
I have to question the idea that it's "nice" to debate ritual murder. One would think that it's the kind of thing that you're either for or against. Like worship of Beelzebub. I wonder if "debate" is really called for.
Good. You're a thinking man. One reason I visit this place is for those who can think. Why poison the young mind and body with comic book pop-culture mentalities of prime time television and garbage food? (Plato's Cave Allegory?)

Adolf Hitler used ritual mass murder, why would any sane person support that? Hitler was a Teutonic pagan, his idolatry was an idea of a master race. Every person murdered was a sacrifice to that pagan totem. Abortion is no different.

Nice to have the opportunity to debate it within a political party and advocate ending the grisly practice. Societal summary execution is in no man's best interest, atheist or not.
As for my "namesake," it is irrelevant to the issue. Just an interesting tid-bit of history, if you like Ben Franklin. What would you call an "occult" practice?
I am glad you chose to comment here. Both of the issues are analagous on an existentialist and materialist level.
You should also note, that although I am an atheist, I used two Christian philosophers to support my position(s):
1. Kierkegaard, Søren. The Sickness Unto Death. Trans. Alastair Hannay. New York : Penguin, 1989.
2. Hobbes, Thomas. Leviathan: with selected variants from the Latin edition of 1668. Ed. Edwin Curley. Indianapolis: Hackett, 1994.
