We interrupt this blog.

I'm having kind of an emotional day today anyway, and then I watched this. This video made me cry. Cry for our country. Cry for gratitude that I can show some people this, even if the AG doesn't like it. I need a mop, people. Wondering what Blog Against Theocracy is about? Here:

From First Freedom First.

  5. You probably know this, but just in case you don't - when I was living in Israel, I could not marry my husband because we each had a different recorded religion.

    We had to elope - which we did, nearly ten years ago. Our marriage took place in Cyprus, in a tiny town in the northwest (I sure love northwests). But that indignity still fills me with rage - there was no legal way for him and me to be married where we lived.

    The abilit to exercise this sort of freedom is not just theory.

    (And Israel delenda est.)

    Well done, all of you, who live to the South of all of us. Democracy, not Theocracy.

    isn't it strange that American
    began when Christians first left my country to escape religious oppression, but that now my country is far more liberal (including worshiping Christians), and that we have moved way passed needing films like this?
    America - at times our inspiration, at times so backward.

  12. I cried. I'm a guy (huh!) and I don't even live in America (UK).

    Keep up the extraordinarily good work, Blue Gal :)

  13. A lovely post. Sadly, though, this topic always serves to remind me that Native Americans remain the only group in America who must produce a government-approved pedigree in order to practice their religion. And even then, their sacred places are subject to desecration or destruction at the whim of the state.

  14. It does my heart good to know that the eight years I spent defending and willing to die for that piece of paper was not wasted. Keep up the good work.
