I'll bet that got your attention. It's just a random thought that occurred to me today. Sometimes I try to imagine how I want events to go well in advance, and I was thinking about the next divorce hearing. It occurred to me that the facts fall out as follows:
In otherwords, every thing I feared might happen when I filed for divorce did. I'm sure she's got an interpretation of these events that I can's subscribe to, but if God wants to tell me something he can get his lazy ass down here and tell me in person sans ambiguity. Until that happens I'm blaming a skewed judicial system.
So I was thinking about testifying before the judge. Specifically the part where it comes up what my wife forbids my children. The fact that my son showed an interest in reading Harry Potter and I'm letting him. That he has to hide that from his mother, because she won't be angry at me if she finds out, she'll be angry at him. That I have to worry that she might find out that I'm letting my child read a children's book. And it occurred to me, this is a Christian Nation. The country is 80% Christian. The constitution forbids it, the founding fathers denied it, but this is not the same country it was in 1776. Now we have senators running the energy commission denying global climate change because God promised Noah that he would never destroy the Earth again. We have presidents and governors denying the right to marriage to homosexuals because Leviticus says homosexuality is bad. We all know how deep the insanity runs, I don't need to recount it all here. If any politician stood up to it, if any one of them said "This is crap. We cannot base the country's laws and policies on a religious book", they would be labeled Atheist (read evil baby eating demon possesed monster) and lose the very next election, or possibly even face impeachment.
When did this happen? When did it go so far wrong? As much as it's unconstitutional, we still need to face the fact that this is a Christian nation, and i'm not sure what can really be done. Show me a non-theist electoral candidate and I'll show you somebody that won't make it out of the primaries.
I'll be honest, France is looking pretty damn good these days.
