Women still count, well kind of...
Recently, a religious magazine called Gospel Today released an issue in which 5 female pastors are featured on the cover with their stories told inside. Well now, chains of Christian book stores are opting to pull the magazine off of their shelves because they do not believe that women should be allowed to function as priests.
One such company that is yanking the magazine from their holier-than-thou-art sexist shelves is the Christian chain called Lifeway. With more than 100 stores nationwide, this is a massive blockage of free speech and a blatant display of sexism by those linked to the church.
Is it legal to block this magazine in a privately owned religious store?
Does this reveal just how backwards, antiquated, narrow-minded and sexist religion can make people be?
Q: Honestly, what is the church and its followers saying to the world if they will not let women be priests, if they will not approve of it, much less let articles written about it be seen?
A: You do not count, you are inherently unworthy because of differences in chromosomes, and you never will be good enough to serve in this capacity because this old, dusty, man-written book says so!
Ladies, time to start a revolution, or get the hell out!
Personally, I'd just leave the faith.
Faith: (1): belief and trust in and loyalty to God (2): belief in the traditional doctrines of a religion b (1): firm belief in something for which there is no proof (2): complete trust3: something that is believed especially with strong conviction ; especially : a system of religious beliefs
Oh, Congress is Having an Election Too?
Yah, we've all probably forgotten about it, but guess what!?!? We get to elect these idiots too!
The latest polls out on the Congressional elections show that the Democrats have a fairly sizable advantage over Republicans.
The latests survey asking voters who they will support in the upcoming elections for Congress show that 56% of adults support Democrats whereas only 42% support republicans (CNN.com).
A previous poll on the topic was taken a few days back that showed a much tighter race with Democrats only having a 49-46% lead over Republicans.
Some attribute this change to a waining in excitement over Sarah Palin being chosen as the VP for John McCain.

Lindsay Lohan confirms what we already knew.
So it's official, Lindsay Lohan might be bisexual or even a lesbian! HEAVEN FORBID!
(OH yah, so is Clay Aiken, he officially came out today)
There's really not much more to say about this relationship in specific; however, I would like to take this opportunity to talk about a group that is often joked about.
Bisexual people should be taken seriously. It's not always "a phase" in the process of coming out as gay (although it can be). Honestly people, it's okay to be bisexual. There's a good chance that some of you reading this right now have felt as though you might be attracted to someone of the same sex at some point in your life. Unfortunately people today take the word bisexual to mean things like:
- Trying to get as much action as possible (being a slut)
- Trying to slowly come out in steps
- Being lost or confused
According to the American Psychological Association, there are different degrees of sexual orientation, and no kids, you cannot actually "pray the gay away" like Sarah Palin's church claims you can: READ ABOUT IT
P.S. I don't care if you aren't straight. If you need someone to talk to...
