Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004

In the entry about the King James Version of the Bible, they refer to King James, who commissioned the translation of the Bible as a "confirmed bachelor".

Heh.  That's so much more convenient than saying he was gay, isn't it?

I mean, if gay people have been here throughout history, and have contributed to important things in our society (and the conservative fundies like their King James version), we'd have to give them some sort of legitamate social standing, right?

Silly conservatives.

Oh yeah, and James WAS married.

Don't confuse conservatism and religion. They are not interchangeable. The media has mistakently pushed all conservatives into the religioius bin. It's a trap, don't fall for it. I am conservative and in no way religious.

Mark,

I said "Conservative Fundies" rather than just "conservatives" to make it clear that I was making a distinction. If you would like more of a distinction make between them, please suggest better phraseology. I will be happy to implement it.

BTW, glad to see you again, I was beginning to worry that we'd lost you.

Nah - just took a few days off.

I wasn't referring to the "conservative fundies" quote, although that is pretty good. What caught more of my eye was at the end - "silly conservatives." I guess along with the "fundies" comment it's a little better. I'm just sick and tired of the two terms being put together all the time. Being conservative has absolutely nothing to do with ones religion - or lack of religion. Yet the two are always placed in the same sentence so much that now when you say you're conservative, people respond as though you are a bible thumper! I'd like to thump something alright, but it's not a bible...

Oh yeah! As for a better term, I just used it. Bible Thumper

I see. Thanks for the suggestion, and I understand your frustration.
