OH, Grow Up! Marriage Hypocrites

It is past time for American religionist to grow up. For decades, Christians used the  Bible to force their religion on others to conform to their beliefs while egregiously failing to follow their own beliefs, which they want to force on others. The US Supreme Court's decision to approve gay marriage across the country has religionist…See More

Gay and lesbian couples around the nation can now legally marry. It is indeed a victory for equality, love and unity. It is a step in the United States moving into the 20th century.

With the rise of Evangelical Christianity in the United States a corresponding increase in finger pointing and blame claiming that the country is in moral decline accompanied it.

Mad Max: Fury Road—Don't Believe the Hype

Thanks, Donald, for the link to the music. I like the way you phrased the music appreciation via education. I always seek out your posts.

Thanks, Donald.  Needless to say, I'm the guy with the Brooklyn accent.  Rev Jones is the cowboy and the pompous bombastic asshole is the imam.
