This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Bad Joke Alert
MercuryNews.com | 12/31/2004 | Militants issue threat on voting:

"The radical Ansar al-Sunna Army and two other insurgent groups issued a statement Thursday warning that democracy was un-Islamic. Democracy could lead to passing un-Islamic laws, such as permitting gay marriage, if the majority or people agreed to it, the statement said.

``Democracy is a Greek word meaning the rule of the people, which means that the people do what they see fit,'' said the statement. ``This concept is considered apostasy and defies the belief in one God -- Muslims' doctrine.''

Ansar al-Sunna earlier posted a manifesto on its Web site saying democracy amounts to idolizing human beings. Thursday's joint statement -- also signed by the Islamic Army in Iraq and the Mujahedeen Army -- reiterated the threat that ``anyone who accepts to take part in this dirty farce will not be safe.''"

Here's a definition for you too.

secular humanism -- (the doctrine emphasizing a person's capacity for self-realization through reason; rejects religion and the supernatural)

The conundrum of religion and democracy is that liberty and freedom, even if granted by a creator, means having the choice to reject religion. Most religious people in America have realized that the benefits of freedom outweigh the consequences of trying to force everyone to subscribe to one religon. Letting people choice their own path is an act of faith.

Drives the fundies (here and in the Middle East) nutso crazy.

I wonder if Robertson and Osama can start a new network... the 700 Virgins Club?
