  1. Glad you included that link to Rachel Maddow's interview with Wayne Slater -- he's one of my favorites. Maddow is too, for that matter. Rick Perry is not!

  2. Donna -- Rachel Maddow is awesome, I agree.

  3. I read that article regarding the Maddow - Slater interview. Very disturbing. It's almost sinister to me to see how often there seems to be a connection between Mormonism and the Religious Right wackos. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised considering the fact that LDS Inc. is a multi-billion dollar corporation. Flies to honey, right?

  4. Cognitive Dissenter -- I suspect the ties go deeper than we realize.

  5. You can't cure homosexuality. BECAUSE IT'S NOT A DISEASE OR ILLNESS, you morons. Sorry for the shouting.

    Can you imagine how much better things might be if people stopped trying to run the lives of other people and instead focused on improving their own sorry lives? I know, I know, but a girl can dream...

  6. Knatolee -- My mind reels at how much damage these alleged "gay cure" programs have caused.
