Talking Point – Guilt by Association

October 9th, 2008

Lately the McCain campaign has been attempting to hammer home the idea that American’s should question Barack Obama’s character and judgment based on a tenuous at best association with William Ayers a former member of the Weather Underground, an organization that performed a series of bombings in the late 60′s in violent protest to the Vietnam war. McCain and Palin want American’s wondering whether or not Obama has the same radical views as those of the unrepentant but reformed domestic terrorist.

So, this begs the question. In a nation where the Justice system is supposed to be based on the principle that your innocent until proven guilty, is it fair, in a presidential election, to try and pin the radical beliefs of one man on a candidate simply because they happen to live in the same neighborhood and both worked on some of the same education boards?

Bate’ing

New Picture (11)I’ve been pretty quiet for some time now on the blog and in a week or two I’ll be able to explain why. There have been some interesting changings going on.In the mean time however I just couldn’t resist chiming in on this news story.

According to “Pastor” Mark Driscoll, writing in a booklet called “Porn-again Christian”, all men need to stop masturbating because it’s a form of homosexuality.

First, masturbation can be a form of homosexuality because it is a sexual act that does not involve a woman. If a man were to masturbate while engaged in other forms of sexual intimacy with his wife then he would not be doing so in a homosexual way. However, any man who does so without his wife in the room is bordering on homosexual activity, particularly if he’s watching himself in a mirror and being turned on by his own male body.

Now, just like almost every post-pubescent male on the planet I occasionally have a date with Rosie Palm. She’s Sweat, gentle, knows exactly what it takes to make me feel good, and doesn’t bitch about why I haven’t finished putting together the shelves in the living room or cleaned out all the junk under the deck that’s been there since 2003. She’s good to me and keeps me happy.

Often when I see remarks such as those of this “Pastor” the first thing that comes to my mind is that he must be feeling guilty about something. My advise to Mr. Driscoll is to get some lotion to sooth the motion and stop beating yourself up over something that’s as natural as waking up in the morning with that tent pole under the covers.
