Don't petition the White House, Use

Don’t petition the White House, Use

Secessionists. I first want to say thank you for finally learning something from history. The last time so many desired to rid themselves of a tyrannical president they declared war on the Union. Thus, your use of a peaceful means through petitions on the White House’s site is commendable. Furthermore, each state now finds themselves represented by a petition and signatures from people possibly wanting to secede from the United States. Texas leads the way with more than 100,000 people asking the White House to address the issue. This is the same state governed by Rick Perry who drummed up his base of supporters with calls for seceding prior to his Republican bid for President. The irony seemed lost on him. Governor Perry is obviously not a viable option to lead the cause. He hardly put up a fight against a weak group seeking his party’s nomination. I also question...
The Country Moved to the Left Last Night

The Country Moved to the Left Last Night

The whole campaign season did not just depend upon the presidential race that finally came to an end last night. Yes, the country voted clearly to give Barack Obama another four years in the White House. He received more than 50 percent of the vote and won handily in the electoral college. Yet, it is what happened down the ballot that shows the nation’s move toward progressive values. It appears that Democrats will pick up a couple seats in the lower chamber but the real change happened on the senatorial level. Voters said no way to Republicans Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock after they attempted to scapegoat women and downplay the trauma of rape and sexual abuse. Furthermore, women won in Massachusetts, North Dakota, Hawaii, and Wisconsin for their first terms. All four of them will be more progressive legislators than their predecessors. In Wisconsin Tammy Baldwin will be the...
Republicans, Rape, Life, and Control of Women

Republicans, Rape, Life, and Control of Women

During last night’s Indiana Senate debate the Republican candidate, Richard Mourdock, did more than stick his foot in his mouth. I believe life begins at conception. The only exception I have for to have an abortion is in the case of the life of the mother. I struggled with myself for a long time but I came to realize life is that gift from God, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape. It is something that God intended to happen. Mourdock joined a club made exclusively of Republicans but a club that seems to be growing as the November election nears. Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh made a reprehensible comment about exceptions for the life of the mother following his debate. “There is no such exception. With modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance.” Complete crap as this woman explains. Of course who can forget Missouri...

Kirk Cameron is a D!@$

Funny or Die comes out with guns blazing against former child actor star Kirk Cameron. Other child celebrities oppose Kirk Cameron (CCOKC) and his demonization of gays and lesbians. Fair warning it uses strong language but the video is hilarious if you can get past it.

In recent weeks the conservative Christian advocate went on a media blitz to condemn homosexuality. This included saying “homosexuality is unnatural, detrimental and ultimately destructive to foundations of civilization” on the Piers Morgan show. Even his former co-stars on Growing Pains, Alan Thicke and Tracy Gold, condemned his remarks.

Cameron then tried to mend fences by saying:

“I’ve been encouraged by the support of many friends (including gay friends, incidentally) in the wake of condemnation by some political advocacy groups,” Cameron added. “In the case of one of my gay friends, we regularly talk and have healthy and respectful debate. We learn from each other, and serve others alongside one another. I thank God for all of my friends … even when they hold very different views on issues of faith and morality.”

Translating it into a similar manner, “I’m not racist, I have black friends!” This is complete crap. You cannot have a healthy and respectful debate when you believe that a part of a person is immoral, “fixable” and worthy of eternal damnation. Anyways…

It is funny how comedy can work its way through a debate like to this to show the stupidity of it all. I am not calling one’s beliefs stupid nor the belief that homosexuality is wrong. I am calling the entire debate stupid because regardless of one’s personal intimate life, it does not mean our society should deem them as an unequal person. Cameron can have his opinion. He can express them on talk shows all he wants. He just needs to know that he will face this type of ridicule and that his views are vile, hateful, mean, judgmental, and based upon a misunderstanding of God (that last one is my own opinion).
