Even more absurd were the two young women kneeling in the mud about twenty yards away with hands up in the air, faces screwed in some weird ecstasy at hearing the "good news" about how their fellow humans were damned. Soon they started rocking back and forth rhytmically, their mouths gone slack, and I just had to wonder if they thought they were fellating the divine.
As of right now, the debate continues over whether to move forward on the poorly worded ammendment that has gained preliminary approval in the joint session. At this point, all I can think of is the rabid hate cloaked in the raiments of piety and faith that I saw on the Commons today. Somehow that hate is driving this debate, and somehow, codifying that hate seems like good idea to an appreciable number of my legislators.
