"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Sometimes I think if it weren’t for religion we’d have no killing at all. We all do realize that religion – like everything else we perceive in any way, shaper or form - is a fabrication of the mind? Right? Don’t get me wrong. The world is not an easy place for an animal capable of reasoning and emotion and if following a philosophy helps get you through it….well, god damn, have at it, it’s better than coping with life using booze and cigarettes. But with religion, like booze and cigarettes, let’s show some basic respect for other people while we use it.
This has to do with Human Rights. The Family is shielding the goals of their hatred and intolerance behind perverse laws. Sound familiar?
And, am I the only one that remembers the line “doth protest too much”? We are so many People obsessed with committing acts that stand as a testament to their having a position on sexuality? The dumber the politician the less aware they are of why they are really doing things.
One more thing, if these “Family” douche bags really want to denounce homosexuality that should really divorce themselves of all things contributed to society by homosexuals – most notably MEDICINE, ENGINEERING, etc. I don’t think they are ready for that. So, like any other bunch of hypocrites they enjoy those aspects of what they renounce that enriches them personally while condemning it at the same time.
This from CREDO:
Conservative lawmakers in the Ugandan Parliament are pushing a bill that would make being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender a crime that is punishable by life imprisonment, and even death. Further, the current version of the bill would send teachers, parents and landlords to jail if they fail to report children, students and renters who are gay.
This "Kill the Gays" bill is supported by the speaker of Parliament, and could be voted on any day now. Just about the only way it can be stopped is through international pressure on the president of Uganda to veto the bill.
Please, sign the petition http://act.credoaction.com/campaign/uganda_president_veto/ We will deliver the signatures to the Ugandan embassy in Washington, DC.
International pressure has worked in the past. When the bill was first introduced in 2009, President Museveni openly expressed his support for it, but then reversed his position and promised a veto after a worldwide outcry and threats from some nations to withdraw their aid.
One problem we face in bringing that pressure this time around is that prominent right-wing Americans like Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, and Bryan Fischer, head of the American Family Association, are openly praising the Kill the Gays bill. We need to make sure their voices are drowned out by a massive denunciation from the rest of America, so that President Museveni knows what is at stake if he caves and signs this murderous legislation.
