Kudos To Sullivan

Recognizing that anyone can be a stand-up guy even if I normally oppose him, I offer this interesting piece about Andrew Sullivan. I always focussed on the stupidity of the law proposal itself and its very likely ramifications for our nation. Didn't think of the motivations in quite this manner. I applaud Sullivan for being so straightforward about it. But it shouldn't surprise anyone the lengths to which the activists will go, what with deceit being a common weapon of theirs.

Those Traitorous Bastards!!!

This article claims that the APA has backed off on the idea of the existence of a "gay gene". While I still can see a biological influence for homosexual attractions, my position has been that such influence doesn't demand acceptance by either society or the individual so influenced.

But I wonder now what supporters of homosexual marriage and other "rights" will now do with this aspect removed from the arsenal of reasons for support. That is, if they really AREN'T born that way, then what does that do to the agenda and those that support it? Everything is predicated on the notion that there is no choice in the matter, that they are born homosexual, that God made them that way and there is no changing it. The APA disputes that now. Does that make the APA just another homophobic enemy? Look what they did to blacks after Prop 8.

I invite those who have supported homosexuality in previous posts to return and render their thoughts on this news. Does it change your perspective at all? Does it lessen your support for, not the people themselves, but what they insist society owes them? And of course, why or why not?

I wonder if I should hold my breath or not while I wait.

Still More Regarding The Torture Issue

I can't help myself. When I see still another thoughtful piece on this issue of "torture", I feel compelled to share it with the likely vein hope of turning on a light in the dark and totally empty halls of the psuedo-sanctimonious liberal minds of some who visit here. This Bruce Walker piece puts the issue in perspective, as surely as previous links have, but sometimes a different voice alerts the dead spirits of the falsely pious where other voices failed. Some may wonder why I even try. I believe that the nausea one feels and the contempt felt by another is really a moral detoxification beginning. (When one introduces nothing but healthy foods and supplementation into a fouled system, the patient may endure several days of gastrointestinal torment as the body, egged on by the good stuff, purges itself of the toxins that made that body home.) Should these deluded souls see the light, the nasty reactions will cease and they will be transformed into more sensible judges of morality. This is my fervent hope because I care.

A Two-fer

I'm presenting two articles that drew my attention. The first is from Kyle-Anne Shiver. I really like this lady's articles and this one in particular echoes a sentiment that I've had since November. The feeling has only grown like snowball rolling down a hill getting larger as it goes.

The second is an article by Bruce Walker and speaks of the misconception the left has about the right. I agree with the ten points he lists, so I guess that means I'm of the far right, rather than just simply a right-winger.

The connection between these two articles is the poor understanding of the left regarding who they put in charge for the next four years and who they rejected. It's pretty clear they aren't thinking.

My Feelinz Is Hoit

For your entertainment and amusement I offer this from Geoffrey's blog. It is also educational as it should display the liberal notion of tolerance and the free exchange of ideas. Note that he links to several of my posts, and without discussing why he finds any of it troubling, he merely lashes out against your humble host. Now I know that for all of his education and reading that he likely doesn't possess the ability to wage a civil discussion regarding the merits of my position, but I did invite him to do so nonetheless. I believe that's the way it's supposed to be done, even if staying home and gossiping like a little girl provides more satisfaction for some.

This is why I appreciate those who disagree and still show up to try to persuade or present their side. People like Marty, ER, Les, Vinny (when ER, Les and Vinny have a mind to), particularly Dan Trabue, who, God bless him anyway, holds firmly to such poor interpretations of Scripture, and even that prize winning troll Feodor. That's what blogging is all about: presenting ideas and opinions, seeking to persuade or be persuaded, to argue, get pissed occasionally, to take a few cheap shots for personal enjoyment and laughs, but not, as Geoffrey thinks he doesn't, to take ourselves too seriously.

From My Inbox

An email I received this morning:

It was once said that a black man would be president "when pigs fly"! Indeed. 100 days into Obama's presidency...Swine Flu!
