Shower Curtain Chronicles: It's Not About The Bible

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.

It's Not About The Bible

As I was watching the program "Now" on PBS Friday night, listening to a female Episcopal bishop explain the debate over gays in the church, articulately outlining the positions, taking great pains to portray the debate over gays as a scriptural disagreement, and even though she was on our just wasn't working for me. This isn't about a disagreement over what the bible says. It isn't about people resisting change. It's about people hating queers and wanting the bible to enforce their bigotry.
But let's all pretend that the nice church people who rail against programs that help the poor while stuffing their own faces, cheat on their spouses, betray their fellow workers, leer at the neighbor's daughter, hire male prostitutes, support torture and lust after a bigger McMansion, are just objectively concerned that some people are not in compliance with the bible. "It's not about the's about the bible." What a charade.
