Luckily, Literacy Is On Our Side
Hate, primitive thinking, and a second grade education seem to go together. Some nutbag just posted this little gem on my blog entry, The Asshole Of Evil, a blog item that challenges the late Pope's notion that gay marriage is part of "the ideology of evil," insidiously threatening society:

You'r websight should be shout down. Pope was tealing like it's of course bunch homesexsuals can take it, go ask revernd Billy Grahm how he feals about you Homesexuals he will say the same thing Pope it's mortal wrong, I hope enjoy hell when all die because God will not except Fags, Dikes in Haven, Enjoy your time in Hell

Lemme tell you, my best friend, who happens to be a man, is in love with another man, and the only threat to society I can see is collective sugar shock from watching them look into each other's eyes. Not that there is a hell, far as I can see, but if you're going to take bets on who earns entry, my money is on a guy pasting "I hate homos"-type messages on my Web site, not my best friend, who got a Ph.D. so he could help poor people get better medical care. PS Moreover, if there is a "mortal wrong," it was on the Pope's end, for not demoting Cardinal Mahony to toilet scrubber in some out-of-the-way monastery, as a reward for sweeping all those child-molesting priests under the rug.

"Homosexsuals"

-- I like that spelling! It has traces of sensual and consensual.

Ignorance breeds Fear which breeds Hate... usually in the inbred.

I only wish ALL preachers of hatred came off this way. It's the ones who can actually string 3 coherent words together who make me nervous.

Me, too, Kimberly.

And Goddyss...man speaketh with missing teeth, huh?

Happy to hear our half horse friend is happy and well and in love! It made my day from far away.

And to John Micketnkie: you are an inconsequential, pathetic insect. Die lonely.

Finally, if any of you get a chance via cable, check out Bishop Spong on the Burke Lectures, from UC San Diego or Santa Barbara. His lecture reminded me how much I really dig the teachings of Jesus despite the moronic voices that have pirated his message. Spongs latest book is called "The Terrible Texts of the Bible", which deals with the misinterpretations that lead to bigotry. There is spirituality out there amongst the ugly noise...

I highly recommend Ben Akerly's "The X-Rated Bible," republished by the exceedingly cool Adam Parfrey, of Feral House/Cult Books.

I highly recommend...

"Meditations for the Humanist: Ethics for a Secular Age" by A.C. Grayling

"Choosing Civility: The Twenty-five Rules of Considerate Conduct" by P.M. Forni

Both books are written in wonderfully short chapters that are easily read in the time it takes to pinch a loaf.
