Valentine's Day Quote

Here's a Valentine's Day present to my loyal reader(s): A quote from Butch Hancock of the country band The Flatliners:

"In Lubbock we grew up with two main things. God loves you and he's gonna send you to hell, and that sex is bad and dirty and nasty and awful and you should save it for the one you love."


Have a Happy Valentines Day, all you sinners.

I just stumbled upon your site, and love it.

My wife and I occasionally listen to "Family News in Focus" (A production of Focus on the Family) just to see what the far-right persuasion of Christianity is talking about at the moment.

They are rejoicing because of an 11th Circuit court of appeals ruled recently that Alabama's law banning the sales of, er... sex toys. The court ruled in a 2-1 decision that Americans do not have a fundamental right to sex privacy.

So, why are the conservatives celebrating this victory? "Simple." They feel that this court victory will open the door for them to push anti-gay rights legislation.

Sex is bad and dirty and nasty and awful indeed.

Thanks for stoppying by Alex.

Yea, its interesting how "activism" seems to be defined by many conservatives.

Activism = court decisions I disagree with.
Strict Constructionsim = court decisions I agree with

There doesn't seem to be much of a guiding principle beyond that. I don't remember the constitution saying anything about congress' ability to ban sex toys, so one would think a strict constructionist should allow it.

I've been to Lubbock, and I'm glad I didn't grown up there.

And by the way, What is sex?

Correction:

Sex is only bad and dirty and nasty and awful if done properly .
