Homo-rality

February 20th, 2009

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?

I and my Father are one.

Does that mean that Jesus wasn?t human after all?

Enterprise

32 years ago today NASA unveiled the very first Space Shuttle OV-01. While originally slated to be named Constitution (It?s unveiling occurring on the anniversary of the signing of the US Constitution which in 2004 was named Constitution day) it was renamed to Enterprise after a massive write in campaign by fans of Star Trek. Gene Roddenberry and most of the cast of the Original Series were on hand.
