This Sabbath

Anglican Church votes against same-sex unions

McCain Campaign Apologizes to Romney for Remarks on Mormon Church

Obama tells church right 'hijacked' faith

The "church" needs to go away.

The "church" is based on common knowledge available a few thousand years ago.

Since that time, there has arisen a body of "common knowledge" referred to as "technology".

If you are a christian/evangelical/fundamentalist, I have a few questions for

Would you have dental work done by someone using two-thousand-year-old technology?

Would you want your next child delivered by people employing two-thousand-year-old "common knowledge"?

If you answered "no" to either of those questions, then why (if you do) do you think it's important for political leaders to adhere to two-thousand-year-old "common knowledge" religions?

I mean, if we must have religion, why not start out anew in view of all the amazing things we've learned about the world in the last 2000 years? Why not start over with today's knowledge?

Let's gin up a new religion based on what we know about the earth, science and the universe now instead of the information (common knoweledge) from a few millenia ago.

I'm here.

I've been moving across town. I expect to kick out the jams again real soon.

Where's your blog?

No blog for me at the current time.

I'm just a generic blog commenter.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

-Hunter S. Thompson

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
