Mr. Brautigan, the species is Homo sexual.  That's different from the species Homo sapiens.

Mr. Cat, that's probably one of the few times that the voter count issue acted in our favor.  Although, I recall many elections were "protect us from the homos" was a major push to get the xenophobes to the ballot.  If my faulty memory serves, something to the effect of Karl Rove's "God, guns, and gays" campaign strategy.  Maybe Slovaks are too lazy for that to work, or maybe they are not as homophobic as Americans are.

Yes, our man Frankie also just appointed a slew of new rabidly homophobic cardinals. I guess he hasn't seen The Birdcage.

The anti-equality referendum in Slovakia (which would have also banned adoption by same-sex couples, and allowed parents to remove their children from sex education) failed spectacularly, with only 21% of eligible voters casting ballots.

In Slovakia a referendum vote is binding only with a turnout of at least 50%. LGBT-rights groups had urged opponents of the referendum to stay home for that reason.

(Of course, the heterosexist supremacists are probably trumpeting the 90-95% yes votes among those people who did show up. And now, more than ever before, we've seen the new Pope's true colors.)

The U.S. State Department is planning to appoint a special envoy "to advocate for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people overseas." [Boston Globe] Legislation to accomplish this was introduced in Congress last week. Representative Chris Smith, R NJ, head of the subcommittee over human rights and international organizations, said "I am a strong believer in traditional marriage and I do not construe homosexual rights as human rights."


That would clearly entail the contention that homosexuals are therefore not humans. Gee, I wonder what species he thinks we belong to???

I would think the pope would be more against heterosexual marriage, then.  They are too waskally to trust.  Even so, he's come out officially against marriage equality in Slovakia. 

Why Pope Fudd thinks he should have a role in Slovakia politicsis beyond me.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on February 5, 2015 at 8:23pm

The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision.

I can't add anything to the views that have already been expressed here about the state of our country.  Sometimes I just want the ability to shake these people by the shoulders and ask, "What the hell are you thinking?!  Use your brain for once!" 

Regarding an earlier conversation, I'd rather work as a porn actor than to be employed in the slimy environment of religious preaching.

I think that Bush was definitely a front man for Cheney, who could NEVER have been elected (or even nominated) on his own.  Bush just played his "good ol' boy" cheerleader and did what he was told.  He may even have believed he was actually running things, for all I know.

And we have to remember that Al Gore won the popular vote, and what the Supremes did was totally unconstitutional.  I re-read the full U.S. Constitution last week, and it carefully spells out the correct procedure if there is a tie.  The Court is NOT mentioned at all in that section.

And in 2004, I suspect that the Ohio voting machines were rigged. 

I vote by mail....the completed ballots may be scanned electronically, but I still feel more secure about the fact that there IS a paper trail.

Comment by Daniel W on February 3, 2015 at 10:26pm

Felaine, I always viewed GWBush as a puppet.  When Rove was the puppet master, Bush was his toy.  After election, with Cheney as "the adult" in the white house, Cheney was the puppet master and Bush was his puppet.  Bush doesn't have the brains, or the character, to actually come up with his own thoughts or ideas.  I guess it's kind of mean to criticize Bush, just for being stupid.

Chrissie, you are more optimistic about Americans than I am.  But there are some good people.  I get so disappointed and frustrated about popular culture and politics and religion.

Comment by sk8eycat on February 3, 2015 at 10:19pm

Chrissie, a lot of us are trying, but the Catholic majority on the Supreme court is doing everything they can to stifle "We, the People."

Most honest polls show that the majority of citizens are in favor of same sex marriages (and other LGBT issues), and hate the Koch Bros and Tubby Rove with a passion.  But they have so effing much money that they can afford to buy everyone in DC, and have change left over.

I'd like to see Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren run for the White House as a team; I have NO use for that professional Xian, Hillary Clinton. 

As for the Rethuglican party....It ceased to be the party of Lincoln almost 100 years ago, but a large number of older African-Americans don't seem to realize that...or they are too wrapped up in the Jesus myth, and favor the Tea/Toilet Party's policies.
