Ellen DeGeneres, a gay talk show host is a spokeswoman for the retailer J.C. Penny. Fine, right? Not if you are a rabidly anti-gay organization. An organization called One Million Moms, which also objected to Chaz Bono dancing on Dancing with the Stars, is demanding that J.C. Pennyfire Ms. DeGeneres because she is gay. Remember the rightwing got Bill Mahrer fired after 9/11, and they accuse the left of being politically correct?
In other news, a Democratic state senator in Oklahoma, reacting to an anti-abortion bill,introduced an amendment which would have made illegal any male ejaculation of sperm not in a woman's vagina. This was in response to a bill that would have outlawed not only all abortions in that state, but including some forms of contraceptives. Now, those who are most opposed to abortion are on the religious rightwing.
Now, according to the bible in Genesis 38:9-10:, "But Onan knew that the offspring would not be his. So whenever he went in to his brother's wife he would waste the semen on the ground, so as not to give offspring to his brother. And what he did was wicked in the sight of the Lord, and he put him to death also." So, if you masturbate, you should be put to death. Now, I bring this up because the religious rightwing use the bible to oppose gay rights, so why do they ignore this passage? Well, I shouldn't give them any ideas. They just might do it.
