Bertold, Congratulations! You are part of the new changes and a tribute to you both. My best wishes for a healthy, strong, happy 35 more years. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on July 30, 2015 at 9:27pm

Thanks so much for all the good wishes guys! It's a bit of an anti-climax at this point. Deciding if I should wear shorts or jeans. I'll have to go to confession first, of course.

Wowie-zowie, Bertold! Congratulations and very best wishes!

After 35 amazing years together we're tying the knot legally (even though we tied it for ourselves way back when). Went out and got the marriage license last week.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 27, 2015 at 11:44pm

Yes, Loren, you are correct.  It's a slow, baby steps process to enlightenment. 

Perhaps we will be lucky to soon see a surge in atheism take place in the same rapid manner in which marriage equality advanced.  We can only hope.

I have a feeling in my gut that religion is on the verge of receiving a serious backlash from sane-thinking people, both non-religious AND the moderately religious.  Rational people are fed up with extremist ideologies both abroad and here in the US.  Rational people don't take kindly to churches denying access to birth control via health care plans or wanting special rights to discriminate against whomever they choose.  It's not only uncivil, but it's undemocratic.  

With every "deeply held religious belief" and "religious freedom" legislation being trumpeted as the cause du jour, the fundamentally religious keep digging themselves into a bigger hole.   

Comment by Loren Miller on July 27, 2015 at 8:33pm
It also reinforces another fundamental principle, Carl: moderation in Christianity effectively means selecting less and less of the most pernicious principles of the bible.

The most moderate Christian winds up being an atheist.
Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 27, 2015 at 8:04pm

Yeah, that's a refreshing message coming from a clergyman.  It would be nice to hear more from many others like him in that "fire and brimstone" style delivery. 

But what this really blatantly shows is that people create their own personal gods who will conform to and stand for everything they personally believe.  The god of the bible says to stone homosexuals?  Not my loving god! 

These church goers may learn to not be hypocrites, but they sure are being intellectually dishonest with themselves.  I wish they could realize that.  Anyway, if a church is preaching and promoting tolerance to its sheep, I guess I can't complain.
