The Religious vs. the Secularists

As Unscrewing the Inscrutable points out, people of faith apparently feel they are under attack by secularists. As if people of faith are persecuted for their beliefs. What a bunch of utter crap. Says California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown

“These are perilous times for people of faith,” she said, “not in the sense that we are going to lose our lives, but in the sense that it will cost you something if you are a person of faith who stands up for what you believe in and say those things out loud.”

Ms. Brown is confused. Religious people can and do say whatever the fuck they want whenever and wherever they want. I will fight and die for their right to do so. The real war here is people like Ms. Brown who think that people who insist on the separation of church and state are a threat to religious people. We are not. In fact, secularists are a group made up largely of religious people!

Secularists have no problem with people of faith. The people we have a problem with are those that would inject their faith into our government. Judge Brown clearly confuses her personal faith with her duties as a judge and for that, the Democrats are completely correct to oppose her nomination to the federal judiciary.

The LoLife Podcast No. 23

Herein I ramble on mainly about sex or how men view sex, I guess. It was prompted by a comment by mopsa who said something to the effect of: “The bottom line is men who are womanizers do not respect women.” I try to answer this question, somewhat unsuccessfully. It all boils down to what you mean by “womanizer”. My lovely lalune and I discussed it, after I recorded this, and we decided that basically you could define womanizer as someone who doesn’t respect women, and that might get you pretty close. Anyway, for what it is worth, twenty minutes and two seconds of Men and Sex.

Podcast Top 5

So I’ve been playing with this podcasting thing and I find it to be quite fun but I don’t really know if it is a better way to talk about this stuff than writing or not. I’ll keep fooling around, I guess.

For those of you who are not regular listeners, I’ve made a quick list of my 5 most popular podcasts. Oddly, only one is about politics. Wonder if you are trying to tell me something?

Right Wing Seeks to Ban the Weather

As if Rick Santorum hadn’t proved himself enough of an idiot already, now he wants to ban the National Weather Service from distributing the weather!. It is hard to believe how ridiculous this is. I don’t actually give a rats ass weather what AccuWeather wants or doesn’t want. It goes without saying that the National Weather Service is important and that because our tax dollars pay for their work, the general public should have access to it. Fuckin duh.

Santorum is clearly, obviously and blatantly siding with a small special interest group rather than with the people that elected him. I wish the people of Pennsylvania would fire that dumb fuck.
