Just a few comments on the hot issues of the day…
Homosexual Marriage: Last month in the State of the Union Address, President Bush warned proponents of homosexual marriage that if they pushed, the opponents would push back. When the president barks, he bites later. Many of his adversaries haven't quite figured this out yet but claim that he's the dumb one.
Wouldn’t this have just been easier (in California, at least) if proponents had simply challenged the constitutionality of existing so-called Defense of Marriage laws in court? Hey, it worked for other groups. What was the rush?
The Passion of the Christ: Haven’t seen it and I’m still undecided as to whether I will (maybe after the furor has died down). About its alleged anti-semitism: Dennis Prager, as usual, has had an even, reasonable take on this subject for months. Of the movie, he says that Christians and Jews are watching two different films: Christians see the Christ allowing Himself to be sacrificed for the sins of *all* mankind; becoming mankind’s Savior willingly. Many Jews, however, see the Jews being blamed for yet something else. Both are understandable viewpoints and I wish that both Christians and Jews would keep this in mind when discussing this subject.
Clear Channel has the right to carry or not carry anyone, Howard Stern. It is a private company. The question is whether your fans care enough about your absence there to make Clear Channel feel the heat. That’s how it’s done, not by whining about “censorship.”
Now, off to
plan and scheme have fun! Have a lovely weekend.
