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?
Good Morning Campers!
Well, its morning at least. The good part is still up for debate. At least with the elections over and I start watching TV again. I don?t generally watch a lot of TV these days thanks to Hulu but it was frankly getting painful to even watch the morning news there in the last days before the election. The ads are probably the thing I dislike the most about political campaign cycles.
But that is all over now and we can get back to seeing ads for things like car insurance and Pepto Bismol. Nothing cleans out the TV tubes better after a nasty negative political campaign season than a good old fashioned diarrhea medicine commercial. Kind of fitting if you ask me.
Back in Washington the President has returned from his trip to Asia, where he visited India, Indonesia, and Korea. Just before the trip ?Conservatives? latched onto a false report that President Obama?s stop in India was going to cost about $200 million dollars a day. Of course why would Glen Beck or anyone else do any actual follow-up to double check sources that could prove the allegation untrue. Fox News should probably change its tagline from ?Fair and Balanced? to ?Never let the truth spoil a good story.? Fortunately the rest of us with even a minimum amount of credibility have folks like Fact Check.org to help us with some verification.
Here at home in Iowa, state Republicans who have taken control of the State House and the Governor?s office are gearing up to take on the fight to add bigotry and discrimination to our state constitution.
