I've been banned from someone's LJ! First time. Don't know why, but probably because of Palin-related posts.

Hope after Prop 8

"We didn’t lose by much. Eight years ago, on virtually the same question, we could only get 39 percent. On Tuesday, we got over 48."

And don't forget the lies that had been going around about how churches would be forced to perform gay marriages. Some portion of the "Yes" voters thought they were voting against more than just gay rights. But we have the children: 61% of 18-29 year old voted against it.

[Edit: oh hell, they were effectively lying about Barack Obama, implying he supported the measure when he explicitly opposed it. Consider that when contemplating the 70% of blacks voting for Prop H8]

There's a movement advocating the Mormon Church lose tax-exempt status, given that they poured $20 million into backing Prop 8, arguably a violation of the "don't get involved in politics" condition of tax-exemption.

Conservative Kathleen Parker on Palin and elitism. Paraphrase: "competence is not elitism."

This is for James.

That's a wonderful idea (and also an excellent president for the various fundy churches). It would also have the added advantage of likely causing Orson Scott Card to spontaneously combust.

Congrats. Is it the same guy who banned me for pointing out some "minor" misunderstandings about Nations the Esteemed Guy Never Had Been To?

One of my friends got actually banned from LJ as a whole for posting the story of how he became an atheist.
