Ideas that disturb me.
Careful, my liberalism is showing.
A constitutional amendment to make marriage a union between one male and one female. Never mind that marriage as a legal institution is not the same as marriage as a religious institution, or you wouldn't have to sign the paperwork. Never mind that it's discriminatory and unlawful to refuse a contract based on the gender of the signers, and that legally marriage should be just that - a contract of financial and legal responsibility. Dubya has an agenda.

And the new Patriot Act. Mostly because it seems to be a behemoth bill of all of the pet projects to allow the government to run unrestrained by public interference, no matter what sort of climate we're in.

Mrowr. I need to take a shower, do something today, and get to Curves at 3 when it opens again, so I can be ready to go to Choirchimes tonight.

now feeling:: cynical cynical

It's part of the reason I dispise having religious people in the white house. It's all like 'love your neighbor' but 'they're evil sinners and they shouldn't be allowed to even sign contracts and get married'. Bah. I'm still firmly in the do-not-re-elect-dubya party. Funny part is, the rest of my family is too, except for my mom. She will not admit that he was stupid about this war in iraq thing. She insists he was right, and saddam had weapons of mass destruction, and that he was helping al quida and stuff.

Bah. -.-

Ugh. This is one of the reasons I shudder to have Wheaton in my background. People identify me with this stuff. Pardon me while my political background comes out for a bit. We live in a pluralistic society, created with freedoms in mind. Yes, the founding fathers believed in a God, (or so Conventional Wisdom tells us) but they set up a society where every one was allowed ot think or believe what one wished. This means that we cannot change the Constitution in this manner. It's against the spirit of the document itself. Oh, and the Patriot Act is just bunk. There's no reason for it. At. All. (shrugs) Trying to get moving on IPFW. It will happen... I hope.....

Hmmm...Pardon me while I was eloquent for a second.


People who think civil unions between people of the same gender will destroy society=Morons

People who believe that eliminating freedom to keep freedom safe is a good idea=Morons

OK, so I lied, that wasn't very eloquent, but most of you who have ever not-read my posts because they are way to long will enjoy my nice summerized view on this subject.

If anyone's actually wanting to read a rant on this subject in depth I will likely have one posted within a day or two.
