Episcopal Church opens doors to gay clergy

Last night the General Convention of the Episcopal Church voted to pass measure D025 allowing gay clergy to serve in the church. According to numbers posted by the Associated Press the vote was overwhelmingly in favor.
Lay people voted 78-21 and clergy voted 77-19 to approve the measure. The House of Bishops had earlier voted 99-45 to adopt the statement.
Maybe one day the United Methodist Church will one abide by its tagline too: Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors.

Bill Clinton Comes Out

Finally! Although its 16 years too late, Bill Clinton says he supports same-sex marriage. The Nation points out that Clinton joins a line-up of other big-wig Dems who recently switched their view of same-sex marriage including Howard Dean, Charles E. Schumer, Jon Corzine and Christopher Dodd.

Would someone call Obama and tell him to come out too? Lets just end this now so we can move on to the next topic.

Ralph Reed: The Comeback Kid

Yep, the iconic leader of the "Christian" Coalition and former associate of the disgraced Jack Abramoff, Ralph Reed thinks he's the hippest, coolest dude since Steve Jobs. He's claiming to make a comeback to the arena of saving souls in politics by founding the second coming of the Christian Coalition, "Faith and Freedom Coalition". According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Reed believes,
“It has to be younger, hipper, less strident, more inclusive and it has to harness the 21st century that will enable us to win in the future.”

Now, I don't know about you but look at this picture. Does this man really look hip and cool?
I'll answer that question. No. Come on, with that hiked to Jesus hair-don't and the dorky smile on his face. Do you think anyone will really take him for being "the political analog to the iPod and the iPhone."? This guy really thinks highly of himself.

We'll keep a Reed Watch going to see what fun and games happen.

Gay couple arrested for gayness

Do we need further proof that the Mormons are a cult? Oh, here's some. LDS Inc. just gives us further evidence.

Georgia Looks Stupid Again

Media matters has this video. Rep Paul Broun says, "The savior of allowing people to have quality health care at an affordable price is gonna kill people." Really Mr Broun? Can you explain that one? This just sounds stupid.

Trouble in the ranks of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference

This article appeared in the New York Times yesterday.

“But it was clear to me,” he added, “that any time you deny one group of people the same right that other groups have, that is a clear violation of civil rights and I have to speak up on that.”

Sally Kern is an idiot

Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern is an idiot. She recently splashed into the spotlight with her hyperbolic statement comparing gays to being WORSE than terrorists and Muslims. That's right Sally go ahead and throw in all the groups of people you hate. Oh, and while you're at it, claim that God told you to say it.

Here is the video that was leaked by someone in the meeting of 50 Republicans.

Sally's words are offensive to me. She makes me fume with disbelief and anger. There is almost no where to start when talking with a person like this because their beliefs seem so irrational to me.

Oklahoma City news station, News9, interviewed Sally after the video received national attention on YouTube.

In defense of her ill-thought beliefs, she tries to use "facts". Of course, we have no clue the source of her "facts". Let me venture a guess.....Westboro Baptist Church. The looney bin of Kansas. When she was asked to apologize for her irrational diatribe, Sally claimed
"There are indisputable facts that show its a deadly lifestyle... What is wrong with me, as an American, exercising my free speech rights?". Sally, dear, no one is stopping you from speaking your opinions. If you didn't have free speech then the police would have arrested you by now. But guess what.....they didn't. AT the same time though, don't think that "free speech" shields you from ridicule from the country. Get a clue!

No Enemy

One thing Bush had going for him after 9/11 was the fact that there was a foreign "enemy" to go shoot and blame for the tragedy. This time there isn't anyone to go fight or blame. Well, maybe he could blame God. But then that would surely turn off his base -- the religious extremists. Can't do that.

And even more unfortunate for him is the people to blame for the poor response time are his own appointees. The sign of a good leader is in the strength of the people he hires. Will the president EVER take responsibility? Will the buck EVER stop at his desk? Doubtful.

Add Another Fumble to FEMA's List

It seems FEMA can't get much right these days. Add United States Geography classes to their ever growing list of training. Yesterday, they sent a plane full of NOLA evacuees to Charleston, except they got the wrong state.

A South Carolina health official said his colleagues scrambled Tuesday when FEMA gave only a half-hour notice to prepare for the arrival of a plane carrying as many as 180 evacuees to Charleston.

But the plane, instead, landed in Charleston, West Virginia, 400 miles away.

CNN has the full story here.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't one sign of GOOD leadership the ability to hire/appoint qualified and effective individuals?

Mommy and Daddy Bush: Go Home!

Mommy Bush has a way with words. She takes the knife, twists and pushes it in further while adding a little salt to the mix. Appearing with her perfectly set hair, clean name-brand clothes, she spoke with the ignorance of the priviledged.

E&P reported her words of ignorance. Just look at this: "And so many of the people in the arena here, you
know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she
chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."


"What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas." hmmmm....why is this so scary? Maybe she's just a racist. She finds it scary that the population of Texas might frow by 250,000 BLACK people. Oh, terror.

Nice, Barb. Shrub, send your Mommy and Daddy home. They're ruining you even more.
