Ex-Gray Pride Week

I think I've recycled my hair since the last time I put henna on my head. Perhaps this week will be my "Ex-Gray Pride!" week, in which I color my hair then demand everyone stop noticing that I am an ex-gray rather than a 32 year old.

OH Officials ordered to recognize gay couple's marriage
Addressing the constitutional question, Black explained, “Although the law has long recognized that marriage and domestic relations are matters generally left to the states, the restrictions imposed on marriage by states, however, must nonetheless comply with the [U.S.] Constitution.”

Join my new group Americans for the Truth About Crayons

What is it with these crayons in this new box i just got? who the hell put all these fake "crayons" in my box. i know what colors they're supposed to come in - and i'm sorry, but Mauvelous Mauve ,atomic tangerine, banana mania? crayola can call them what they want, but they will never be real crayons. even worse, the color changeup line is shaking its fist at god- won't someone think of the children? insidiously, they even named one baby's blanket - have they no shame, using our precious baby's to push their perverse trans-color agenda. don't get me started on those glitter filled abominations some may call "crayons", but i know better. and those heads n tails "crayons" along with the extreme twistable colors don't even look like crayons. mark my words, if crayola continues to mock Minerva, she's going to destroy us all to avenge the marketing dept.'s hubris.

We need to fight this horrific slide towards artistic diversity and fake "crayons" being foisted upon us, but we're expected to simply shut up and let it happen. Don't worry, it won't impact you if there are freakishly long, twistable abominations being marketed as "crayons".  Poppycock!   You can tell the goddesses are pissed - if you need any more proof how it is impacting the entire art world, simply turn on top 40 radio these days and listen to what we are expected to accept as "music" - the movie companies have been recycling bad television series into even worse "movies" for years, and remaking classic films into "movies" from the land of thud. If you need more proof, it seems that the goddesses lifted their protection from the painting world as well, allowing Picasso’s 1971 Harlequin Head; Monet’s 1901 Waterloo Bridge, London and Charing Cross Bridge, London; Matisse’s 1919 Reading Girl in White and Yellow; Paul Gauguin’s 1898 Girl in Front of Open Window; Meyer de Haan’s Self-Portrait, around 1890; and Lucian Freud’s 2002 work Woman With Eyes Closed -- to be stolen and most possibly burned in a stove

I myself have been afflicted with lyric writers block - Brigit has teamed up with Eris and are punishing me for not having started this effort earlier.  So what I need you to do is help me set the world aright.  But don't get me wrong - we are not anti-Twistable "crayons" - just pro-crayon, like the goddesses intended.  Even crayola knows what they've done - admitting that they have strayed from what we all know are TRUE crayons- describing them as  " the classic kids' art tool. They are the colors generations have grown up with - from red, yellow, and blue to gold, copper and silver, too! Crayola Crayons are designed with a focus on true color, smoothness, and durability." 

The most insidious part about this dangerous experimentation with children's art supplies, is that the purveyors of faux "crayons" are targeting our children!   If you look at their website, they have pictures of youngsters all over the place, tempting them to stray from tradition - from what everyone knows, and what common sense dictates - that real crayons come in a 24-96 count cardboard fliptop box, are only one, solid color.

I need your help, and more importantly lots of cash to defeat the forces of multi-colorism, who are attempting to shove their abominable art sticks into our fingers, and more insidiously, into the hands of our children.  Together we can make this right - Demand One Color, One Crayon!  Just the other night, I was at a warehouse, and groups of long-haired men were unloading crates of dry erase "crayons", washable "crayons", and glitter filled sticks of doom - all destined for our children's school desks and even reaching into the sanctity of their playrooms at home!  

Next thing you know, the muses will allow both Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake all in the Billboard Top 10 in the same week.   Please - join the Americans for Truth About Crayons now, before Minerva puts down her traditional crayon, just like they have always been made, One Color, One Crayon - and picks up her spear and pokes america in the eye with it.

Honest, this proves we're not a hate group

More from the "if i say i'm doing this because of my sincere christian belief there is no way it could be wrong" crowd. from the mission america website- (order of text is from the original) leaves me wondering what the author considers to be a "reasonable person".
Mission America is not a hate group, as claimed by the far-left SPLC. In fact, based on how the SPLC has begun listing respected Christian conservative groups as if they could be compared with the likes of the Ku Klux Klan, it seems that the SPLC would qualify for this label itself by using such underhanded and invalid tactics. Linda Harvey has pointed out many times that this is a deliberate and puzzling smear campaign, since there's no record of what reasonable people would consider...

why does the illinois "family" institute hate adopted kids and their parents?

So. Now god hates adoptive parents. The ill-named Illinois "Family" Organization wants you to know that, and also, adoption is a form of child abuse. Any time a child is "intentionally deprived its biological mother or father", it is dooming that child to substandard results, and is the act of a selfish adult. It is a newly discovered outrage, now that they are aware of the FACT that families headed by non-heterosexual couples exist. Along with some other, um, interesting concepts - the outraged author asks - Does the Constitution prohibit citizens from having their religious beliefs shape their political decisions? This question is not simply implying that the fact they are losing politically means they are being repressed - it also is a demand that this particular gang of evangelical christians be exempt from sanction if they claim religious motivation for any crime they may commit. Sounds ridiculous, but in california, their political cousins are attempting to raise enough signatures to put language on the ballot to make it legal to bash a sodomite for jesus. they don't like fornicators or furriers either. What the author is saying is that religious freedom means he is free to do whatever he wants, so long as he blames it on his religion.

Israeli PM threatens to strike Iran - Middle East - Al Jazeera English

Israeli PM threatens to strike Iran - Middle East - Al Jazeera English
If all nations used the logic of the US & Israel, Iran would be perfectly within their rights to bomb Israel at any time now.  clearly, a nation making threats of aggression on a regular basis, that has a proven track record of military aggression is an approved target using the faux-golden rule

Syria crisis worst since Rwanda, UN says - Middle East - Al Jazeera English

".......Ivan Simonovic, the Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, told the meeting that at least 92,901 people were killed in Syria - among them more than 6,500 children - between March 2011 and the end of April 2013.

"The extremely high rate of killings nowadays - approximately 5,000 a month - demonstrates the drastic deterioration of the conflict," Simonovic told the council meeting.
Guterres said that two-thirds of the nearly 1.8m refugees registered with the UN in Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and elsewhere had left Syria since the beginning of the year.

Merging battlefields
The UN envoy to Iraq, Martin Kobler, later gave warning that escalating violence in Iraq could no longer be separated from the war in Syria because "the battlefields are merging".
Kobler said Iraqi armed groups had an increasingly active presence in Syria and as a result, the Syrian conflict is no longer just spilling over into Iraq, but Iraqis are reportedly taking arms against each other inside Syria........."

because being disagreed with is just like genocide

So, someone over at the anglican (sic)mainstream website feels so put upon by having to put up with people they think are icky being issued civil marriage licenses, that they are sure it is just like millions being slaughtered in a genocidal fascist campaign.  They were crass enough to set martin niemoller's quote below a heading - "to think about ssm, july 2013'.

These are the same folks who say to "approach" homosexuality as a rebellion against god, against humanity, and that people with "homosexual feelings" should be shamed into realizing how hideous and satan inspired they are, and to be coerced and derided into "overcoming" it.   Who sent the prime minister a letter including the regnerus study, claiming it proved how bad homos are for children. 

So of course - as the final steps towards extending equality in marriage law in great britain are being taken, those who are used to being catered to are screaming about no longer being granted preference over "those kind of people".  They are new to this non-entitled reality, and seem to lack the language appropriate to describing their new, and apparently confusing, situation.  As a public service, I have custom tailored a more appropriate catch phrase for the movement:

First they disagreed with the British National Party, and i did not speak out because i was not a member of their group.  then they derided the policies of the National Front, and i joined in, as i belonged to a rival party.  then they looked askance at the new british union, and i did not speak out cuz they had that mormon working for them.  Then they laughed at me and told me i couldn't have my way!  and there was no one left to feel sorry for me.
Because people disagreeing with you, especially when you feel entitled to be catered to, is exactly like a genocide.  right.

gluttons for evangelical supremecy file CA amendment

So,there is a renewed interest in this silly thing It seems the authors make the surprisingly common "mistake" of conflating the concept of religion with their particular brand of fundamentalist christianity - but the sheer disconnect of the following is distressing: below is what the authors want, but apparently were advised was just too obtuse: language strikeout in original - codifying exemption from apparently every conceivable law, just so long as the perpetrator really reeeaaalllly wanted to do it, (and god , as usual, agreed with them)
Free exercise and enjoyment of religion without discrimination or preference are guaranteed. This liberty of conscience does not excuse acts that are licentious or inconsistent with the peace or safety of the State. The Legislature shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

and replace it with explicit instances and people they expect to be permitted to harass and discriminate against in any way they care to, even up to breaching the peace and safety of the state.  they don't include a demand to be free to murder their rebellious children, but mark my words, you know how the talebangicals like a slippery slope - let them get away with this and they'll be stoning their brats within a fortnight.

"(b) We, the People of the State of California, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom, in order to perpetuate His blessings do submit that it is not a crime, hate crime or unlawful for a person to use any part of the Bible’s content as authority; and do submit that a person using any part of the Bible’s content as authority may freely speak, pray, write, discuss, publish, preach, teach, hear, share his or her faith, to proclaim Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father, engage in street witnessing, distribute written material or otherwise communicate any views on salvation, heaven, or abortion, adultery, alcoholism, anti-Semitism, astrology, bestiality, bigamy, bisexuality, blasphemy, civil unions, coarse jesting, cohabitation, coveting, cross-dressing, cults, drugs, drunkenness, extortion, euthanasia, evil, evolution, fornication, gay marriage, gender identity, hell, heresy, homosexuality, idolaters, idolatry, incest, lying, marriage, murder, necromancy, other religions, pornography, psychics, rape, reviling, sex, sexual immorality, sexual orientation, sodomy, sorcery, stealing, transgender, trans-sexuality, witchcraft, yoga, or sin at any public or private gatherings, school, church, or other place of worship, Bible Study group or sidewalk or in any communicative medium, the internet, satellite, television, film, theater, radio, videos, recording, newspapers, magazines, music, and periodicals or by means of a computer, electronic devise, telephone, cell phone or fax machine."

Because we all know, the meaning of "religious freedom" is the freedom for everyone to proclaim Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  oh yeah, and to hold forth about how hideous every other "religion" is.  looks like i can still get away with carrying a shrubbery across state lines.  thank goodness.

and what the fuck?  they don't give a shit if people swear?  what kind of fucking christian watchdogs are they?  hmm?  what caused that lapse?  could it be, SATAN?

today in lying liars

Lie 1 - NOM et al:  Prop 8 is still the law in CA, and all govt officials, including the supreme court are in violation of 'murkin law - and therefor the state does not allow for marriage equality

Reality: Prop 8 was found unconstitutional by the federal courts (original trial as well as the appeal).  The supreme court did not grant standing to the professional antigay folk, and the lower court rulings are in effect.

Lie 2 - The PA state attorney general is in breach of contract and illegally declining to defend the state's DOMA - the supporting argument for the above lie about Prop 8, insisting that the state attorney general broke the law by agreeing with the fed courts ruling and declining to waste money defending what they see as unconstitutional

Reality: nowhere in the state code or constitution could i find language that said the AG MUST intervene when the constitutionality of a statute is challenged - it does say the AG MAY intervene, but is not required.

Lie 3:  Eugene Delusional Delgadio sent out yet another breathless but false email warning people that if they don't send him money, that " Instead of allowing an employer the freedom to judge applicants on their expertise, appearance and actions, the federal government wants you to play by new rules."

Reality:  The employment nondescrimination act does nothing to limit employers from firing employees for cause, or force employers to hire lgbt workers to meet some quota or give preference to anyone.  Rather than eliminating that ability, it adds lgbt workers to the list of folks - including mr. delgadio for his chosen religious philosophy- who cannot be fired for reasons not related to their work performance (i.e. being a satanic pawn in the "homosexual lifestyle")



Instead of allowing an employer the freedom to judge applicants on their expertise, appearance and actions, the federal government wants you to play by new rules.

more "oppression" from the courts

the parents of an encinitas school child sued the district in an attempt to ban yoga classes from being part of the schools exercise routine.  they claimed it was religious indoctrination
