Good morning...

I am on the circulation desk, so I will be here till 10 pm.

Fourteen hours.

And yes, I'll be posting a lot to amuse myself. It's my damn journal!

A different Christian take on the Pledge of Allegiance

As I was saying to geigersk...

One of the Ten Commandments forbids taking the Lord's name in vain. (Coincidentally, everyone who knows me knows I swear like a drunken sailor, but this is the one speech restriction I really try to make. If you ever hear me screw up and do it, you'll know I've lost it big-time.) Shouldn't Christians not want "under God" in the Pledge to be said by those who don't believe in God? Shouldn't we want to honor God's name and make it special, rather than trying to make lots of people who don't feel that way say it because we think it keeps America a "Christian" nation (which it wasn't and wasn't intended to be? Remember, many of the founding fathers were deists)? Should we even want God's name in the Pledge, which most people just repeat without thinking about what it means?

"Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and render unto God the things that are God's."

Answers to Your Questions

"what is your favorite movie?"
Rushmore, bar none. It's just a perfectly realized little universe. It sings.

"Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost late at night?"
I'm sure it would if the cats didn't keep stealing it. Fuck!! I just remembered I left gum in the car today in Atlanta weather!

"If you could be a man for a day would you? Even if it meant sleeping with a woman?
Sure! I think it would be fascinating to see what life is like through the eyes of the other gender. As for sleeping with a woman... that would depend on the circumstances. gamgee, can I borrow atomicnumber51? ;)

"Where do you see yourself in 10 years?"
I don't know where I see myself. I know where I hope I am: happily married with a kid or two, working in a career I enjoy and am good at. I guess that's all we can ask, huh? I'm clinging to that dream.

"What makes the sky blue, the birds sing, and the sun shine?"

"How do you feel about Byron?"
I'm hoping this is George Gordon, Lord Byron, the poet? He's my favorite of the Romantic poets. I might have been one of his groupies, he was so cool.
