Every time I think the Republican Party in Oklahoma can't go any lower ...
GOP extremists shun gay pastor -- on the floor of the Legislature. This was an attempt to silence this man, and an attempt to change the permanent record.
Can they go lower? I dare not challenge them. They may follow Rush L. into hell if we did.
Did you see that the greatest threat to the U.S. security is the economy?
Economic crisis tops list of US threats
By PAMELA HESS –
"WASHINGTON (AP) — The economic crisis has trumped bullets and bombs in the intelligence agencies' latest assessment of threats to the United States.
Blair also reported the cascading threats that could flow from global climate change; struggles for energy resources, food and water; an exploding population; and the threat to U.S. information networks from hackers."
Can you imagine that the Republicans are now anti-American-security?
But then, if the fundies were actually smart enough to understand irony, that would take all the fun out of mocking them.
I'll bake y'all cookies.
Overall, I see no reason to ban the prayer itself if only the prayer is what is entered. But without further explanation regarding the 37 who didn't vote to include it, I have no comment on them. Perhaps you all know more details that you haven't made available. If not, you're doing the mind-reading thing with which I know Alan has a really hard time.
In addition, I will remind you haters that standing against bad behavior is not bigotry or discrimination as it is meant in the usual sense. Whether or not you believe a lifestyle isn't bad behavior is besides the point. The worst you can call those of us who believe so is that we might be mistaken, though we aren't. But you are that which you accuse us of being for your intolerance of our position. Shame on you.
You'll let us know, won't you MA, when you start following Rev. Lou Sheldon's notion of rounding us all up and putting us in "cities of refuge". That's *your* agenda.
No hate here, ya dork. Just grief, for all the people who would be Christians if not for the likes of you. Harsh words, true. But they come with being the territory when anyone sets himself up to be a judge, whether yourself, other homophobe biblical literalists, or the Oklahoma House Republicans.
