Stuff that is really pissing me off…
The pope has said that gay marriage is fake. There are far too many angry, self-righteous, mean, narrow-minded, petty, ignorant homophobes out there. Surely the place in hell these people claim is the destiny of homosexuals is in fact reserved for the very people with the hate-filled hearts.
If a “marijuana pill” was invented and distributed by pharmaceutical companies, would it be acceptable? What is up with denying sick people relief? How is medical marijuana any different from something prescribed in pill or injection form?
I understand Laura Bush was campaigning recently for women’s rights in the Middle East. What about back at home, where women are being denied their legally prescribed birth control pills by some pharmacists?
Speaking of which, I found this, via her. Please consider doing it.
Oh, and with regards to these charming and morally motivated pharmacists, what about Viagra? Are they refusing to fill prescriptions for Viagra? How do they know the men filling these prescriptions are not doing so to enjoy some special time with their mistresses? Or thirteen year old girls? Or prostitutes?
Finally, I leave you with these two quotes:
“We’ve been attacked by the intelligent, educated segment of the culture,” - pastor Ray Mummert, creationist.
“You can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.”
A priest, quoted by Anne Lamott in ‘Bird by Bird’
