So there were 1,446,008 votes cast of the approximately 13 million registered Republican voters. Not a very big turn out if you ask me, even with the GOP testing out a few propositions that are telling signs as to whether you’re a “real” Republican or not. (i.e. abortion, God in the town square)
Anyway… you can see the language of the propositions here.
The one that just has me absolutely dumbfounded though is the voting result for this one.
Ballot Prop 4: Public acknowledgment of God
The result was ninety-five percent! That’s right… 95% of those 1.4 million votes cast voted yes!
Ok. C’mon now. I know y’all think you really want this but you don’t. You really, really don’t want to be Afghanistan in Christian clothing.
Of course there are some who would gladly let go of the 1st Ammendment.
this is painful and embarrassing to watch.
Hey kids… I’ve got a GREAT idea!!! Let’s make Texas a Theocracy!
Apparently the Republicans are testing the waters towards taking Texas in this direction with Ballot Prop 4 in the primary to see how it would go in the general election.
I think I’ll have to file this one in the “be careful what you wish for category”.
I mean c’mon, how are are the right-wing theocratic, Christofascists going to react when it’s reported that a Muslim kid starts the morning prayer at school by saying, “Allahu Akbar. Subhana rabbiyal adheem. Subhana Rabbiyal A’ala. Allahu Akbar.”
I’ll tell ya how… they’ll crap themselves.
You know, I know Texas has some idiots in public office but how a dumb ass like Don McLeroy has been in public office of anything let alone education for even one term is beyond me.
So in response to idiots like McLeroy, I went to the polls today, cast my vote and said NO!
From what I understand, the California Supreme Court has 90 days from the hearing that was held on March 5th to decide what it’s going to do in regards to Prop 8 once and for all.
I still don’t understand why letting anyone get married is so offensive to some people. In the video link below you’ll see there is guy “A” yelling to guy “B”, “you’re going to hell!!” It’s at about 1:16. He also calls him “filthy” and other not-so-nice things and wasn’t being very Christ-like although he used the Bible as the basis of his stance.
What does it matter to guy “A”. So what! Why do you care if guy “B” is going to hell.
What does it matter to you. How does it affect you!… guy A?
And another thing… why would anyone want the government telling them what they can or can’t do. I really don’t get it. How does any thinking person think it’s ok for the government to tell someone they can or can’t get married or do anything they want for that matter so long as it doesn’t infringe on the right of someone else right to enjoy freedom and happiness.
I know… you think it just isn’t right. You can’t just redefine a word to include other things. Marriage is one woman and one man, sanctified by God.
You know what… that’s morality. That’s the government dictating to you what is right or wrong. Do you want the government (particularly this Dem-led congress and administration) Continue reading
