Margaret, is it a sad day, indeed. I was just reading the news about how America has gone against the word of God with the latest Supreme Court ruling. I am just beside myself. If any of those judges were to just read the bible, they would clearly see the error of their judgment in the Book of Leviticus.
Thou shalt not cut your hair roundwise: nor shall you shave your beard. (Chapter 19 Verse 27)
No. Wait a minute. That’s not it. It’s another chapter. That one was used by the court when they ruled on Supercuts vs. Bad Hair Days.
Let’s see. Oh yes, here it is:
Thou shalt not eat shrimp or lobster. (Chapter 11 Verse 9)
Darn. That’s not it either. That one was used when the court ruled on The Olive Garden vs. Red Lobster.
Where is it? Oh yes. Leviticus Chapter 18. Here it is:
Thou shalt not approach a women during menstruation. (Verse 19)
On second thought, Margaret, I am not sure what all the fuss is about. If you don’t agree with gay marriage, don’t marry someone with a roundwise haircut and serve shrimp at the reception.
So now that we have that settled, let’s get back to what is really important… Racism and Hate Groups.
I tend to agree with the President. That Confederate Flag belongs in a museum. But freedom of expression is very important, so I also agree with Senator Lindsey Graham who says that flag is “part of who we are” as South Carolinians. And I struggle like all of the Republican Presidential Candidates do with offending everyone who flies the confederate flag. I think individuals who want to display that flag should be able to hang it in the back window of their pick-ups for all to see. That way, the rest of us will know that they are Republicans and can avoid uncomfortable political conversations with them over dinner at Red Lobster.
The way I see it, you can use your bible to justify hatred, and you can use the First Amendment to justify your right to express your hatred. Or you could pull your head out of your ass and realize that you pick and chose which bible verse to quote with as much ignorance as you pick and chose which Republican Presidential Candidate to nominate.
Call me crazy, honey, but sometimes I wonder whatever happened to common sense.
I mean it. Really.
