We endeavor to give satisfaction

Wait, what?

August 25th, 2017 by Vader

Back from the eclipse. (It was way cool.)

Going through my emails. There was one from the local schools, who for reasons unknown are under the impression I have a student attending school from my  home. It was a long discussion of the upcoming eclipse watching activities, emphasizing safety and end with the curious statement:

Students are allowed to opt out of these activities for cultural, religious or others reasons.

I am genuinely puzzled which religions or cultures eschew eclipse observation.

And yet, you can’t decline to customize a wedding cake for a ceremony you sincerely believe, for religious reasons, to be a mockery of one of your most sacred sacraments.

Go figure.

Keeping in mind that these ruminations are purely speculative.

Mea culpa

July 02nd, 2015 by The Junior Ganymede

The Junior Ganymede welcomes this guest post by Kent G. Budge.

My reaction to the SCOTUS decision on gay marriage has been decidedly mixed. By that I mean that I’ve experienced a broad range of emotions over it, none of them positive.

One emotion I haven’t experienced is surprise. We all knew this was coming, and those few of us who professed optimism that the Court might yet rule in favor of the states, or at least rule very narrowly against the states, struck me as whistling furiously in the dark.

However, one emotion I have found myself experiencing, which I did not expect, is remorse.

The courts have found that there cannot possibly be any reason to deny gays the benefits of marriage that is not rooted in animus. Bigots on the Right claiming that there are rational arguments for the traditional view of marriage are just lying about their real motivations.  Here’s a quote to prove it:

Openness and Diversity for all, except for that

March 30th, 2014 by Zen

The Mozilla Foundation has a new CEO. He was a co-founder of Mozilla, helped invent Javascript along with other notable achievements. But it is not for his technical qualification that the internet is in an uproar. It is because he donated to Prop. 8. Now there is an uproar, from both within the company and the general community at large, for him to step-down or renouce his former position. 

Calls for diversity and openness  do not extend to his position, which is only referred to as hateful and irrational.
Apparently free-love prioritizes sex over actual love.
Who knew?

Gay Marriage, Jeeves

January 17th, 2014 by Bertie

What ho, what ho, what ho!

As a sagacious and experienced man of the world, I am often called on to render my two bits on the events of the day. In recent years one’s interlocutors have been rather pressing on this matter of what is called, if I have the terms right, frolicsome marriage. One isn’t au courant on all the details, of course, but begging pardon for any blushes mantling maidenly cheeks, as Jeeves explained it to me the whole caboodle has to do with a matrimony where the conjugal relations suffer from a distinct lack of variety. Rather! It hardly seems likely, but he insists. Buttonhole the fellow if you want more information. (more…)
