Sandi - yes! LOL
Dallas - cute movie trailor. I keep wondering, tho - when are they going to make a movie about a boring overweight middle aged hard working guy who bakes an awesome cherry-rhubarb pie?
Very true Dallas. Similar to anti-Americanism around the world. I don't know if it is still true but it used to be that most anti-American people would be happy to meet an American and invite us in for tea and talks. It is America that is hated rather than individual Americans.
VeganTiger, I agree with you, people are nice despite, not because, of religion. The human mind is amazing in its ability to compartmentalize and sometimes to hold completely contradictory views at the same time. When I think of the massive ignorance that christians have about the bible, and their hypocrisy, my head wants to explode.
I can't understand why people don't get it. If a person says they are a christian but believe woman should have equal rights, black people shouldn't be slaves and glbt people should have equal rights including marriage rights then that person IS NOT a christian. What's so hard?!?! If someone does not believe the dogma then they are not a christian or jew or muslim or whatever. There MUST be some way to get through to these people! People are nice DESPITE religion NOT because of it. Morality existed before religion and has evolved despite it. Is that a clear enough way to put it or can someone help me out here? I've tried explaining it to some of my glbt friends and they just don't get it because some "xtians" helped them in their transition. I've told them it's not xtians that helped you; it was people helping you despite what their evil book tells them and they are NOT xtian. *AHGHGHAHGHGH!*
Nah, just understand them. Really simple ideas are easy. It's when they have a cogent, original thought, and can make a solid, sane and reasonable argument, now that really throws me, instead the same ole bs and reasons I've always heard.
I'm vegetarian. That's not a vegetarian product. I do sometimes eat Tofu but it's not the same thing.
Hey Dallas, I've seen dogs eat the poo poo, and chickens too. So using this circular logic, favored by the religious, dogs and chickens are gay! Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more! :)))
I've written off Uganda as a country worthy of any thought. I feel very very bad for the LGBT people who live there, and I think maybe we should arrange for an "Exodus" before they are obliterated by their bigoted scape-goating superstitious hateful religious and political leaders. But as a country, Uganda ranks up there with North Korea and Iran. And Jamaica. I also feel the same way about Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, South Carolina, and most of Idaho. I will not leave any of those places money in my will, and I won't visit there. I do have to fly over Idaho sometimes on trips back east. I try to remember to use the restroom and flush when flying over the state. Preferably poo poo.
