I don't like doing laundry, so I need to know, in lieu of Congressman Kevin Yoders' naked swim in the Sea of Galilee, where do the Republicans stand on nudist colonies? I maintain that it would be much easier if we didn't have to wear clothes. I wouldn't have to decide what to wear. I wouldn't have to go shopping when an item needs to be replaced. I wouldn't have to worry about finding a tailor or seamstress when I need an alteration or when I have a rip or a button falls off. I could eat as much as I want without worrying about becoming too big to fit into my current size. Also, if the Republicans are so Christian and so pious, and are such great friends of the fundamentalists, where do they stand on drinking quite a lot of alcohol at one time? Some of other Republican congressmen who jumped into the sea, but had clothes on, have admitted that alcohol may have been a factor in their jumping into the water rather late at night. I can picture it now, a closely-knit but respectful Christian community of practicing nudists who partake in different drinks. What kind of drinks do these Republicans prefer?

Like some people, I don't feel comfortable in the water and don't swim. If I am going to drink alcohol, I don't want a combination that would spur me on to jump into the lake. So, I need to know exactly what these men of God were drinking that helped to motivate them to go swimming under unusual circumstances? Like the Rev. John Shelby Spong, who describes himself as a "Christian in exile," I don't believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible with miracles, or in a supernatural being up above who is omniscient. Perhaps Congressman Yoder and the other Republican congressmen who were at the Sea of Galilee don't believe in an all-knowing God either. If they did, they would have been more circumspect and restrained in their behavior. Which all suggests that they may not be as pious as they claim for purposes of getting votes from their evangelical and fundamentalist supporters.

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
