separation of church and state

Yes, if the liberals win you will lose some of your religious freedom and free speech rights.

You will not be allowed to say certain things about a particular group. Homosexual marriage will be approved.

I'm curious as to how we get to these conclusions.

Homosexual marriage being approved-- frankly, I'm for it, but I don't think the Nov.4 election is going to make that big a difference. It's a complex issue, and one that is going to be voted upon, not elected.

But losing "some" religious freedom? Unless we're talking about the freedom to interfere with other's lives and their rights, I don't understand at all what religious freedoms are at stake to be lost if the liberals win.

Free speech rights? Like the rights guaranteed in the first amendment? Those will be lost? How?

You will not be allowed to say things about a particular group. Like the Huguenots. They were a bunch of right bastards they were.

No, really, this is what some people actually believe. It's like a major disconnect happening in the notions of what is actually possible, or what is even real.

Crashed and burned last night. Certainly I was out later than I probably should have been, and I did take some sleepy pills when I got home, but they're usually not THAT effective.

I woke up at 10 this morning. Slept through both alarms.


And I had a meeting I was hosting at 11:00. I was a few minutes late, but the meeting went off fine.

Still, once in a great while, I sleep through my alarm clock. It happens, and it usually means that I'm pushing things too hard.

Yeah, it seems I can do that once in a while. Go figure.
