News Item

For some reason I hadn't heard this. Maybe it's because I get all my news from Fox.
Hege Dalen and Toril Hansen have rightly become national heroes in Norway after they rescued 40 fleeing teens from the massacre on Utoya Island. Using their boat, they made multiple trips into the waters around Utoya where Anders Breivik was murdering 69 people and ferried as many as they could to safety. Bullet holes later discovered in their boat indicate Breivik fired upon them. There's been some concern among the gay community that their story hasn't received the attention it should because they are a married lesbian couple.

Those who oppose gay marriage do so on religious grounds, so they claim. It goes like this: being gay is a choice. The(ir) bible says homosexuality is a sin. Therefore...

Implicit is the corollary that since these people are choosing to affront god, they are godless. And to those same people who make such arguments, people who are without god have no basis for morality.

So I wonder what explains this behavior. For that matter, I wonder what explains the silence of the press...

SCALPELS are ambidextrous, just like condoms.
and in ancient times Lefthanders were treated WORSE than Homos, at least in that Queer Nation of Greece.
