Today's Battles

At the Broward Palm Beach News-Times arguing that Susan Stanton should be given a fair go. Not a favourable one, a fair one. She hasn't had one of those in 2 years though, so I'm not holding my breath.

At News Jacksonville.com a debate on human rights law that has turned into a debate on Christian theology. As if the two were connected. In some ways, government at the local level in parts of the USA is a Theocracy, despite what they'd like to think.

To the Palm Beach Post , and fighting the shower-nuts' lies again. Most people who are likely to vote for the Amendment to the Gainesville city charter that will strip human rights from people like me are at worst, gullible, and usually just misinformed by people that should be trustworthy.

Thence the Denver Post , and some information about Intersex conditions and Transsexuality. And asking the question "is it actually possible to murder someone who's transsexual, when no matter what the circumstances, you can always use a trans-panic defence?".

And finally, some snarky words in defence of an Intersexed German Tennis player.

It takes a while to move a mountain, one spoonful at a time.

Your deeds are evil--this is why you waver in your faith. Repent and come to the light:

John 3
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

You received a negative vote on your post? People don't seem to like truth :-(

Which is why they post anonymously. And why I don't.

If you're going to quote Scripture, you might do well to follow the example of Our Lord by condemning the people He condemned. Not the Samaritan heretic, not the woman taken in adultery, not the tax gatherers and collaborators with the Roman oppressors, not the whores or drunks or thieves. Those people got "your sins are forgiven" and "neither do I condemn you." The people He called "a brood of vipers" and "whitewashed tombs, full of corruption" were the religious leaders who inserted their own biases into the religious teachings, and put an undue burden on people.

All the major religions teach us to love our neighbour as ourself, and I don't like being discriminated against by religious fanatics or legalistic bureaucrats.
