Rantings and Ravings and the Occasional Sane Comment of a priest blogging from the Global Center. I have a camera and I'm not afraid to use it! Now with Lovely Mona!!
Let's see take someones rights away or feed a bunch of hungry people for $20 million. Sure glad the LDS Church folks made the right choice!
No kidding, Fred. No kidding.They have a site where you can look up donors, and by George, my LDS neighbor donated $155.61 to the yes side. Now I will have to up my donation to match his but to the no folks.I just love this family so much. They adopted two of my cats and recently a rescue dog, I taught their son and daughter piano... I have known them for years and they are wonderful people. It is hard to understand, for me, how they could support this.I will love them anyway, but it makes me very sad. One of their daughters worked most recently with a male hairdresser friend of mine who was gay. I assume, but do not know, if she knew that. But he died of HIV recently, so that should have been a clue.I wonder if she--married to an Evangelical Christian, not a Mormon--will vote the same way. I think she will, but pray she will not.Then I have a rabid Evangelical up the street--also a wonderful family that I adore--and he took me to task over my Obama sticker. We have had a lot of conversations over the years about God. He looked very disappointed, if you will, in me. I told him straight out that Sarah Palin scared the hell out of me, that I don't like McCain's policies (any of them), and that I believed theocracy belonged in text books not enacted. I then launched into the whys of Obama's policies (I am an uninsurable cancer survivor so healthcare is critical for me, and my long time partner is a diabetic, also uninsurable), including in that energy policy which I told him that quite honestly while Obama's was better, it was still way off the mark. I talked about taxes, foreign policy, the war... In the end, I made it VERY clear that there was NO way I could vote for McCain Palin under ANY circumstances and absent Obama, I would be voting for Nader.I also have my no on 8 sign outside... which he didn't even bring up. That would have been sparks and fire, no doubt:)
Well, yes, padre, those boys do. As though terrorizing lesbians was a way to mask their entry into gay households to search the guys' bedrooms (probably for marital aids and leather goods instead of marriage certificates).When I was in Utah I thought those young Mormon husbands looked delicious. And jes' cuz yer married don't mean ya ain't queer. Which is probably why they are so threatened. It is a matter of dogma that they must reproduce plentifully to provide bodies for pre-existent souls waiting for their chance to progress toward godhood. We non-breeders just don't fit that program too well.
