Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004
Wednesday, 26 July 2006

     On Monday, a guy I know put his life and his health on the line to give his sister a kidney, and save her life.  Skilled, dedicated surgeons and staff performed a miracle.  Last night, I heard that all went well.  Brother is expected home tonight, sister's recovery will be slower, but she is expected to recover nicely.

     Ann Coulter says that liberals are "Godless", and our sacraments are things like abortion.  Not so.  Our sacraments are actions that  take learning, knowledge, philosphy, dedication, skill, and use them to understand and work with reality.  To reconcile our lives to our given condition in a way that is helpful and useful.

     In a world where the "Godly" descendants of two half-brothers are STILL murdering each other over whose conclusions about daddy's God revelation are correct, and who gets the land, it is ever more clear to me that we would do better to chuck the old, stale, worn-out "miracles" of our ancestors, and focus on our own.

     The burning bushes and the loaves and fishes have us fighting over scraps.

     Let's get on with what's real.

Let's face it, Trees: Ann Coulter would be very comfortable in a brown shirt and black knee-high boots, marching under a crimson flag with an eagle mounted over the standard.

And no, I'm not engaging in hyperbole. I find her views disgusting, and her way of thinking utterly distasteful.

I consider myself a moderate who is raising his children as Secular Humanists. Yes, we talk about God, but what we emphasize is that we need to treat each other right in every day life because that's the good and decent thing to do. We don't put the threat of Hell over their head; instead we impress upon them the need to be decent and courteous to others for no other reason than it's the right thing to do.

And guess what? So far it's worked. Well.

Then I Coulter's take on this viewpoint and I have to wonder: Where the hell does she get off calling herself holier-than-thou to anyone?

Just my rant.
