Another great video

The whole idea of voting by majority rule to take away someone's rights would be appalling to most if we were talking about anything except gay marriage. This video does a nice job in explaining that.

Orwellian Decision

"I feel it's a blow to families," he said. "It marginalizes the decisions that parents face every day in regard to their children's medical care. It really affirms the role that big government is better at making our decisions for us."

Court appointed attorney Philip Elbert after a judge ordered a teenager to receive chemotherapy even though the teenager and his parents have chosen not to have it based on their religious beliefs.

Thinking of Closing this Blog

You know, I have been posting things on this blog for years now. I have had such a groovy affinity to it and have loved having a place where I can vent politically. Even though it's also caused me some pain (ne: when the search committee at my present church discovered and actually read older posts on here).

In another way, closing this blog may make me feel as if I'd be leaving a dear friend, saying goodbye too soon. I have enjoyed the comments, the debates, and the exchange of ideas. And yet, most of those things haven't happened in a long while. Blogging on here has lost a part of its charm and it's not as new and exciting as it once was.

Now that I am on Facebook, I find I have a place to vent or be fabulously political, if the mood hits. So, I have been thinking it's time to shut this thing down. I still have another blog (a church one) that'll keep me online and posting my thoughts and 'brain droppings' from time to time.

I'll make a decision soon, one way or the other.
