Shower Curtain Chronicles: Jungbauer Revisited

Shower Curtain Chronicles

Latex painted shower curtains make great, cheap, waterproof banners to display at demonstrations, over freeways or anyplace you want to take it to the anti-gay, anti-Constitution fascists. This blog will feature banners I've made over the years, commentary on the outrages du jour, general observations and accounts of the latest actions by our blog troop as we wield the bathroom accessory cum political billboard.

Jungbauer Revisited

I'm always a bit embarrassed to read the report on my conversation with Senator Jungbauer and my exuberant declaration that "conservative Christian does not necessarily translate into closed minded." The recent Eleventh Avenue South article about my Capitol activities reminded me of having written that line and made me think how wildly optimistic it is when compared to the realities of conservative Christians' hateful, destructive behavior in Minnesota and around the world. It's true that "open minded" was what I was thinking while Jungbauer was talking to me, but I should have qualified my exuberance by saying "this time," or "in this case." As someone who has been spat on and had their life threatened by conservative Christians on the front steps of the Capitol in years passed, I shouldn't forget just how destructive and violent people who call themselves conservative Christian can be. I intend, however, to leave the door open...a crack. Ya gotta live with people.
