Rulers? Ms. Harris, what have you been smoking this week?
So, in today's CNN news posts, Ms. Harris - you remember her, the one who was responsible for the theft of the 2000 election - claimed that not electing Christians to public office is "legislating sin."
Oh, and apparently separating religion from politics is wrong. Why? Because "God chooses our rulers."
Well, Ms. Harris, I hate to break it to you, but we live in a democracy. The President et. al. are not our rulers. They are our SERVANTS. They work for US. They aren't kings or princes (although Dubya appears to have forgotten that point); they're guys doing a job they were hired for for a certain term of years.
So perhaps you should revisit your beliefs, as they don't map to reality. There are no rulers in the United States of America. Never have been, never will be.
Hey California folks,
There was a letter to the editor
today in the "Desert Dispatch" newspaper - which serves Barstow and the surrounding areas.
The letter was a homophobic diatribe against Mark Leno's bill, SB1437
, which would provide for equal time and instruction in public school classrooms to acknowledge the positive contributions of GLBT people to California history, science, and other important issues. I followed the instructions in the letter to let the Governator know my feelings on the matter... all but the last
I quote from the letter, with two small changes enclosed in [brackets] to show my edits.
Governor Schwarzennegger has set up a special phone line for your input on this bill. Simply dial 1-916-445-2841, there will be a recorded message, press 1 for English, then at "Is this about legislation bill?" press 2 for yes, then at the "Is the bill SB1437?" press 1 for yes, and finally at "Are you in favor of this legislation" press [1 for YES]. Less than 30 seconds of your time can [SAVE] this bill.
Do feel free to forward this to all and sundry. Press 1-2-1-1, folks. Call and make a difference.
Subverting the dominant paradigm for fun and pleasure,
