    SB Sarah, had I but known you hadn’t found this before now, I would’ve sent you the link last week (my hubbin found it for me).

    I try to view this at least once a day to remind me to keep my sense of humor. And that shrimp cocktail is a sin.

    OMG!  Sacramento Community College just got a whole lot classier!!!  (Says the Sacramento native…)  Sadly enough, if that musical had actually been put on at Sac Community, those people would have been stoned to death.  (Okay—Proposition 8 came up during a discussion about topics for a persuasive essay—I’m still smarting from the student who screamed “I don’t want no fucking faggots making out where I can see them!!!” in my face.  It left a BAD impression on me about the liberality and humanity of my home turf.)

    I laughed at the video but i’m always amazed by people who don’t really believe in the Bible trying to “out-Bible” the believers. It’s not as simplistic as either side wants to paint it.

    My husband knows the bible better than anyone I’ve ever met, and he has no tolerance for pushy, hypocritical christians.  He grew up Jehovah’s Witness and for the first 18 years of his life it was all about church and family. 

    Then he moved out to make his own living, couldn’t afford rent, moved in with a girl (platonically) to save money and was kicked out of the church and dumped by his family – forever.  He really doesn’t like Christians. 

    So he can happily “out-Bible” “the believers”, and he does.  He has no tolerance for hypocrisy, no tolerance for Christians who say they’re about love and then act in the name of hate.  If you wanna be a hateful person, go for it – but don’t ‘dip it in sparkly christianity’ and try to sell it to the world as following your faith.

    On the other hand, we both know a few christians (sadly, only a few) who act as christlike as they can.  They are focused purely on being a better person themselves and being kind to others.  Those folks are a joy to be around.

    The Year of Living Biblically was an entertaining look at some of the weirder Biblical injunctions.

    My favorites: If you are in a fistfight with another man, and his wife grabs your private parts, you “shall cut off her hand.” (Deuteronomy 25:11-12).

    You should not lie on a bed where a menstruating woman has lain, and you can’t sit on a chair where she has sat (Leviticus 15:20). (Applies only to men, I guess).

    If you set your slave free after six years, but he decides to stay, then you shall bring him to the doorpost and bore a hole in his ear. (Exodus 21:5).

    There were some really bizarre bits about red cows and dove eggs, but I can’t remember now. Rest assured some freaky cultist (of both Christian and Orthodox Jewish bents) are following these rules, though.

    I was in the Castro in San Francisco on election night.  We all went from such joy to such heartbreak.  I’ve been to several events, and let me tell you, there is hope.  But most off there is love. 

    I live with a gay man right now, and it kills me to think that I could go to Reno and get a midnight marriage to any smuck out there, but he and his long-time boyfriend can’t.

    It’s sad, really sad.

    I love Jack Black and Neil Patrick Harris…sigh.

    I’m not a huge proponent of marriage, but that’s also because there are many ways that I think the whole institution (legally) is flawed.  As a woman who will probably always be single, it is frustrating to see how it is (from the outside) and privileges are given to married couples that those same couples simply take for granted.

    lexie – I would be careful about making assumptions about whether the folks who made the video don’t believe in the Bible.  There are a great many folks who believe in what the Bible says and yet still believe that the prohibitions against queer folk are antithetical to the teachings of Christ.
