    I AM NOT CRITICIZING OBAMA!

    I swear, you people have a complex.

    Good grief.

    I'm remembering why I never come here anymore.

    Ciao!

    Go back and read what I wrote:

    Did anyone notice the ammunition for the pro-life extremists?

    I can see the propoganda posters already, their usual shock-value images with the following quote.

    "There is no god who condones taking the life of an innocent human being." - President Barack Obama

    Great, just great.

    I lived through the 90s, I am actually a little freaked out how predictable and easy it is to red flag what the pro-lifers will grab hold of to use against us. Why is it easy for me but not the Obama speechwriters? Puzzle me that one? "Innocent human beings"?!?

    I wasn't criticizing Obama!

    I was predicting the utterly predictable.

    I was simply saying... the anti-choice crazies are going to sink their teeth into that particular choice of words by Obama.

    Viola! They did.

    To me that knee-jerk impulse by the far right each.and.every.time is reason enough to keep government as far away from religion as possible.

    I wasn't the only one who heard this that way.

    Forgive me, the whole faith-based thing makes me crazy.

    I'm not saying that it was intentional, but that specific sentence and words struck me as verbatim anti-choice rhetoric.

    Just as the Prop 8 people used Obama's religious-based words about god and marriage, the image of a pro-life poster flashed into my mind.

    OK, google "innocent human beings" and you'll see that I'm not the only one it sounded that way to, the pro-lifers have already sunk their teeth into it.

    No but it does illustrate the slippery slope when we use "god" as the reason to do or not do something. We are supposedly a secular country, and it is absolutely possible to outline a moral, responsible course for our nation without discussing "god".

  • Share it around, OK?

    Thanks!

  • Please pass it on!

  • I already switched my voter registration to my NY-20 address. My solid Dem vote is needed more there than in Brooklyn!

    I'll work my butt off for whoever runs for Gillibrand's slot!

    I live in Brooklyn with a 2nd home in NY-20. I've always been so impressed by Gillibrand.

    I wrote a diary touting Gillibrand about 2 months ago BC (Before Caroline). http://www.mydd.com/story/2008/11/21/951 55/773

    This has nothing to do with Clinton for me.

    I simply posted the pictures of her in response to the poster who completely inaccurately stated, "If she did she didn't do it in New York. I've never seen her at any of our events. The only person of note I've ever seen with us was Eliot Spitzer."

    I've been at NY gay pride events. I've seen Clinton with my own eyes (and Giuliani and Bloomberg for that matter).

    There are examples in the Bible of loving same-sex relationships which could be interpreted as being more than "friendships".

    Ruth 1:16-17 and 2:10-11 describe the relationship between Ruth and Naomi.

    Perhaps the best known passage from this book is Ruth 1:16-17 which is often read at both same-sex and mixed-sex weddings since it so beautifully describes a "marriage".

    "Wherever you go, I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me."

    Ruth 1:14, referring to the relationship between Ruth and Naomi, mentions that "Ruth clave onto her." The Hebrew word translated here as "clave" is identical to that used in the description of a heterosexual marriage in Genesis 2:24. "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."
