(Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis)
Ed my dear reader, and comrade.
Hint stay away from that special super sugared Southern Ice Tea stuff. It's the only poison I allow myself what with having that diabetes thing'n all.
But I digress.
To the shock, and dismay of my other dear comrades here. I agree with you completely. Kim Davis Ky. County Clerk is a woman of faith as you said confronted with something she 'Never' in her life thought would happen.
Actually I can hardly believe it either.
Queer marriage all over the place! Remember what Quintin Crisp said "You'll know you're free when you, and your cause becomes boring". The world of the Straight Gays is nothing if not that.
This is another thing I thought I'd never see.
As for dumping on this lady who's caught between Horse Shit, and a sticky place. She does in fact have my sympathy,...though yes I put it in rather a nasty way..."Nazi Scumbag" "...wasting our time" "religious stupidity" or some such I think I said.
Mind you the anti Queer movement is to my seeing a gang of book burning Nazi bastards. The individuals within it are however people so are we...in a way. If I came off bitter it's because I am. As I said I've seen this before. Old time segregationists that evaded, and delayed. They could just not abide by the 1964 Civil Rights Act...still can't.
As you've noticed this country is still very segregated 50 years later.
That's the lens I was viewing this through. Sympathy for her Faith driven act yet exasperation at seeing evasion, and delay of hard won rights. ...again. I feel sympathy for them anti-abortion folks as well,....excepting their terrorist wing.
Faith drives the sincere of among them too.
It still drives my Better Angels.
So to all perhaps I should have been 'more' openly generous in Spirit in this post. My weariness, and bitter anger after a life time of struggle drove it. So yeah it was a thoughtless post. Snarky nasty, and not taking the humanity of these events into consideration.
I did exactly what I'm always saying the bad guys do.
Hopefully tho' you got the larger point that freedom is tired of waiting for folks to get used to the idea that Queers, and Niggers are people.
This is tough for everybody, and yes maybe I should have written in a more serious mode. I didn't. I'm human. Being human I can, and do hold diametrically opposing points of view at the same time...as do we all.
To my other dear comrade posters.
Sorry if you all had your steam raised there for a bit. Remember everybody can say whatever they want here. In all the years I've blogged that's been what this is about. You long time comrades will know this.
Alright yeah you got pissed at Ed. Bleep happens. Though in future try to be less,...um..Rambunctious in attitude to opposing comments. Unless it's really witty, and funny.
Otherwise play nice.
Ed I hope this scary event will not discourage you from reading or posting again. To my other pals I hope my comments don't make you feel I'm more of a a back tracking weasel than you already thought.
We now continue with our blog which is already in progress.
