Late night...

Oh my...
Still haven't quite gotten back to normal yet. I'm in Montreal at the moment; last-minute visit with the family, who are here for a hockey game.
What's new in the world? Well, it turns out that the original paper that started the "ZOMG vaccines cauze autizm!" movement was fraudulent. I can't say how much it pains me that there are little kids out there getting measles (which has serious complications, people) for no reason other than that their parents have a bone to pick with modern health care.
In other news, the US (now under new management) has decided that, after all, throwing people in jail to rot for loving someone of the same gender isn't that cool. Good for you, US. :)
Hopefully, something interesting and peer-reviewed will come soon...

So I'm here sitting with the loverly BF, and he brought up a very interesting point. We were talking about some people's inability to accept homosexuality as a natural part of the human experience/existence, and he mentioned this: Once realizing that being gay is not wrong, anyone (e.g. a priest) who had, in the past, condemned a gay person for their feelings or attractions, would have to look back on that experience and realize that they had made a huge mistake. Maybe a very grave mistake, depending on their reaction and how often they did it. And for a lot of people, that would probably result in an astronomical amount of guilt. So maybe it is a little easier to understand why "homophobic" people are so reluctant to give up their views--because to do so would make them the evil ones.

On the Lighter Side

It's been a very rough week, so let's wind it down with something a little more light-hearted.

This is Rob Zimmerman and his take on "traditional marriage." ;)
