Contrary to what some may believe, being gay doesn?t sever a person from morality. I am not out to convert anyone, recruit anyone, and I am not preying on children, but I am supposedly?
?the greatest threat to America?
Everyone that tries to tell me that being a homosexual is wrong is relying on one thing, their religious beliefs. It seems to be nearly impossible to divorce any discussion about the rightness or wrongness of homosexuality from religion, because when you do, the people against it have nothing to base their argument on, and any good debater will tell you that you don?t win a debate by bringing God into it because it?s a cop out. God is all mighty, he can do anything, so any argument against that is moot. It comes down to biblical passages written by men who were ?under the influence of God? and ?can?t be wrong?. Can someone name me one living human being that isn?t ever wrong about something? How about naming one human being that isn?t living that was never been wrong about something, and yes I know that the first answer to that question is going to be Jesus Christ, but then in John 10:30 Jesus says?
Does that mean that Jesus wasn?t human after all?
I watched the first show tonight after i got home from work. I have to say that Ed still has a lot of polishing to do. He seemed a tad nervious and unsure with the cameras. I’m sure that he will quickly wrap that up and have a fairly decent show.
The only other issue I have with Ed is that he appears to be a lot more partisan than I am used to seeing on MSNBC. Sure Olbermann and Maddow are fairly liberal hosts with their shows on MSNBC but they do a fairly decent job of keeping it reigned in. Ed lets it all hang out, which may be exactly the type of show he is wanting to put out. I’m not sure I will be an avid follower of the show becuase of it. That and he hits the air waves at 5:00pm here in Iowa, which means that he is on generally during the time right after I get home from work and rarely have the TV on.
Rachel Maddow showed several segments of an interview with Collin Powell last night. I thought it was very interesting.
Here she asks him what he thinks of the GOP Budget alternative that was put out yesterday. A transcript of the interview and other clips can be found here. I am currently reading through the GOP budget proposal and hope to have my take on it out this weekend.
In this next clip he talks about Gitmo and the Bush Administration’s use of torture.
