OMG! Thank G-d for distractions!

It's a Farm Kings marathon today leading up to the start of season 3.  WooHoo!!!!  Princess Bear (PB)  is going to be so upset when she gets home.  Her room isn't picked up and she has no TV until it is.  Those lessons while necessary suck. 

I'm also glad for the diversion of an eye candy marathon since my blog post and sharing the Phil Robertson shame on A&E pic on facebook is creating some controversy.  As always I'll maintain my stance of a) this is my blog and no one is forcing you to read it.  b) their is nothing positive being created by this PC world that people are so anxious to perpetuate.  It's just making for a bunch of pansy-a$$ed people who want to have a shit fit when someone doesn't agree with them.  I was thinking some more about the whole Phil Robertson "controversy" last night.  There are some big issues here.  Let's get the whole gay thing out of the way.  Statistically around 4% of the American population is gay.  Somehow this 4% has made it so that the 77% of Americans that are Christian and believe that homosexuality is a sin must pay for respecting their religion.  Anyone see a problem here?  It's not a matter of sexual orientation but a matter of skewed logic and priorities.   ALSO the Christian religions are not the only religions that prescribe to the idea that homosexuality is a sin.  I just used the biggest group to show the number issue at hand.  There are a couple of big problems here and it has not a damn thing to do with whether you believe that homosexuality is a sin.

- This country was founded on the idea that people can worship and believe they way they want to.  The Pilgrims felt they could no longer live in England under the Church of England set up under King Henry VIII.  So they started a pilgrimage.  It first led to Holland and ultimately to America.  A place where they could worship and hold their beliefs.  THIS IS WHAT AMERICA WAS FOUNDED UPON.
- In addition to freedom of faith there is a freedom of speech we stand by here in America.  Yes there are also consequences for this but Phil Robertson said nothing wrong.  He pointed out what his religion states and has been fired for it.  Frankly the man has one hell of a lawsuit if he wants it. 

The fact that those in America must apologize for having faith is a problem.  Once we become a country that must temper our faiths tenants we have lost the basis of this country.  It's a slippery slope that has no positive outcome.
