So, this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

idiotic quote of the week, thus far

"I don’t believe that gay marriage is in line with God’s Word, which is found in the Bible. So, what I think doesn’t matter; what I believe is what’s in the Bible and the Bible says that gay marriage is not acceptable."

-outspoken Christianist Stephen Baldwin's take on marriage equality.

Baldwin became born-again in the wake of 9/11, which the washed up actor says was a sign from God. i hope those thousands of tragically ended lives were worth SB's conversion. i'm sure they were. sometimes it takes a really big bang to get through to a person. especially a person like Stephen.

i'd love to ask this dim wit to show me where - anywhere - in the Bible gay marriage is referenced. spoiler alert: it's not. nor was the concept of what we call homosexuality. nor was the ideal of separation of church and state. nor was the concept of equality of all peoples, such as females of the species. there are a lot of things that are nowhere to be found in the Bible, let alone thought of during biblical times. gay marriage is just one of them.

when is this so-called fundamentalism going to stop having such a harmful stronghold over our society? i mean, it might be funny when a slightly retarded "celebrity" says stupid shit like this, but when most of our elected federal officials would agree, it's a sad day in the supposed greatest nation on earth.

well, that's my rant for the day.

thanks to Towleroad for the story, and for getting me all heated on this frigid winter morning.

Not to mention the judgemental ways of some so-called "Christians".

Nothing pisses me off quite so badly as a "religious" homophobic.

Cannot stand a hypocrite....

Lol, my captcha is "blesseho".

UPDATED: Alec Baldwin is still acceptable -- nay, better than acceptable. He's v. funny and great on 30 Rock.
