Falling Behind

I can’t let Jeff get ahead of me in blogging. So I have nothing to say, but I’m going to go ahead and say something anyway.

There is a post under construction for this section that is a long diatribe about the Catholic Church, which as human organizations go, annoys me more than most. Hopefully it’s fairly well reasoned. They’ve been doing two things recently that they’ve done to annoy me (which I’ll go in to more detail on when I finish that other post) but quickly they’ve gotten involved with politics, which violates the church/state separation (and should preclude them from any sort of tax-exempt status) and are pushing hard against same sex marriages. It’s bad enough that Bush is trying to write discrimination into our constitution – the first time a constitutional amendment has been used not to grant freedoms to people, but instead take away the hopes of equal treatment. I contribute heavily to the organization that I linked to above – the Human Rights Compaign. They seem to be the group most visible in fighting the 39 states trying to write discriminatory laws at the moment and obviously the federal efforts as well. I’d encourage you to visit their site and since you are obviously a smart person and agree with this position, to consider aiding their cause.

On a completely unrelated note, I also uploaded some more photos to the New Photos section of my gallery and moved some old ones around. That is all. Have a nice day.
