Isn't It Ironic

Sadly, for purposes of my blog, I wasn't able to capture this image before it disappeared into oblivion, but...all day yesterday at my work computer, where MSN is the default home page, I was subjected to a photograph of an anti-gay protester holding in one hand a "MARRIAGE = 1 MAN + 1 WOMAN" placard, the other hand clutching a crucifix bearing the image of a particularly anguished Christ gazing toward the viewer. The crucifix looked poised for smashing into the skull of some nearby sinner.


And I won't even go into the timing of the Adminstration's sudden renewed interest in the issue of gay marriage.


Meanwhile, on the Ship of Fools , the subject of celibate marriage -- committed relationships where partners for, whatever reason, choose not to consummate that relationship -- is causing Koncerned Konservative Kristian handwringing: you know, is that household arrangement really a marriage, is there something baaaaad about a couple choosing that way of life, etc.



P.S. (an after-thought) said...

Can you post the sub link for the Ship of Fools article. I didn't know which link to click on the page. Thanks.
