When I was a little girl, in the early sixties, my mom used to sit me in a corner with a pair of scissors and a stack of magazines. I remember this image because I thought it was so beautiful, with all the deep greeny blues. I especially admired the confidence on the woman's face and how she was looking off into the horizon as if she had a head full of well-defined plans and five years in which to accomplish them. I thought the only flaw in the photograph was the man simpering at her breast. So I took my scissors and snipped him out. Voila! Problem solved!

I love men, but I was right. This guy doesn't belong in this picture.

American Christians - Putting the Sex in Homosexual

Paula Abdul - heterosexual ambassadress

Gary McCullough, the director of ChristianNewsWire, posted an opinion piece on the upcoming demise of the television show American Idol. He blames it all on Ellen DeGeneres who will be replacing Paula Abdul as judge. McCullough claims DeGeneres is , "...more known for her same-sex sexual preference than any expertise in the music business." On the other hand, when you think of Paula Abdul your first thoughts are of wholesomeness and family values?

He goes on to imply that adding DeGeneres as a judge " one more step in making sexuality the prime topic when discussing American Idol."

Just because the word "sex" is part of the word "homosexual," the same as it is with "heterosexual," doesn't mean that homosexuality is all about sex, any more than heterosexuality is all about sex. Ellen DeGeneres is a lovely person in a stable, loving relationship. To imagine her sexually as McCullough suggests will happen, takes a lascivious mind, straying from its own professed inclinations.

Christians, let's bring discussions of faith back above the waist. Take your noses out from under other people's bedding and get a breath of fresh air.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Galatians 5:22-23
Why are y'all watching a show called American IDOL anyway?

Ireland's Blasphemy Law

Don't you just love the accent?

Now in Ireland, insult a Christian, pay a fine of 25,000 Euros. While many legal authorities claim the new Irish law is written so narrowly that it is unlikely anyone will ever be prosecuted, please remember that, based on charges of blasphemy, Monty Python's Life of Brian was banned in the Republic of Ireland for eight years.

The new law is meant to protect fragile religious ideas from the big bad wolves of free thought and free speech.
