in defense of freedom...

think you are not under attack? not by terrorists, but by those who believe that their singular, narrow-minded religion should govern the whole world, not just its followers.

I am not homosexual.
I am not Islamic.
I am not Christian, though I was raised Catholic.

I am an American. I am an Ohioan.
I support everyone's desire to be religious, up until the point where they try to force me to follow their dogmas.
I believe in equality and I believe in freedom. There is no difference between attacking an abortion clinic and flying a plane into a skyscraper.

Let me be clear:

Now, regardless whether you agree with me, I ask you to consider this...

If, and when, you become the minority, do you want to be persecuted? oppressed? disenfranchised?
Blacks, Hispanics, women, Native Americans, homosexuals, the disabled, the non-Christians, etc.might relate to the concept better than straight, white,  (former) Christians like myself.

I don't particularly care for the idea.

Please take a moment to watch this video. I found it informative, and it has scared the bejesus out of me. It answered many questions about the elections I face in the coming years.

Please, watch and spread the word about Equality Ohio's new video:


If you have trouble viewing this video, please click here,
or copy and paste this URL into your browser:

America is about freedom. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Equality for all, not equality for the majority.

You can insult me all you want. I will even defend your right to free speech. That is what the Founding Fathers fought for... however, despite their own religious preferences... they created a country where they emphasized the separation of church and state.

Let me be clear:
...The Separation of Church and State...

They did not want to form a religious state. They said so. Often. No, I won't waste my time and cite the sources, you read them all in middle school. You know they are there.

And the Bible is pretty clear on the point of judgement. Even the hippie (long hair, sandals, made wine and wore a dress) son of The deity said the Aramaic equivalent of, "Dude, back off. My dad will punish her, so put down the rock and chill out."

In any case, I hope you watch the video, and pass it on to others. No matter what you believe, you have a right to that, as long as you don't try to change the government to become your jihad-enabling tool.

Now, who wants to get on the soapbox next??? Fire away.
