Jack Blacks Birthday & Scary Political Folk
Happy 37th birthday to one of my favorite chubby, comical actors!! Actually, I think he is the only chubby, scruffy actor on my list of favs. But I adore him. He reminds me so much of a dear deceased friend from high school. People can say what they like about him, but I thought he was quite charming in movies like Shallow Hal & School of Rock. I also have enjoyed his band Tenacious D. Did you know that both of his parents ARE actually rocket scientists? I believe they both work for NASA or some such entity.
Now, lets get to those scary political types!! Yikes, can they really be this crazy to say such things out loud? Well, just when you thought they couldn't be any more spookey they prove you wrong!!
Seems that Catherine Harris, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, said that if Christians are not elected, that politicians will" legislate sin," including gay marriage and abortion. Speaking to a magazine called the Florida Baptist Witness she went on to say even more. That separation of church and state is "a lie that we have been told" and that separation of church and politics is "wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers."
Well, does this frighten anyone else? That we have these people running around and trying to run more and more of our government? It also gives others, that may consider themselves a Christian person, a black eye. Not everyone is as kooky or dogmatic as she represents herself.
I believe that if the current admin. had their way that we would be totally under control of all the "born again" against everything folk. I personally don't think that God has any desire to get involved in our political activities, I have heard that he has much bigger fish to fry, and didn't we get something called "free agency" where we have the ability to choose and make our own mistakes? Isn't that part of the whole forgiveness and learning from your mistakes thing?
