Normally, I don’t quote people who write nice things about me, but I like what one of my favorite bloggers, Rachel Lucas, wrote about me and I just had to post it,
I mentioned last night how awed I am by how civil and decent my commenters are, even in debate. And it reminds me of something I’ve wanted to blog about for a long time: my observations about how full of sh*t liberals are when they say conservatives, especially the religious ones, are generally intolerant and mean.
As you know if you’ve been reading this blog for long enough, I’m on the record as NOT being either a conservative or a Christian. I’ve openly expressed disbelief in the Bible, total rejection of organized religion, serious beefs with Christian thought processes, a desire to legalize marijuana, no problem with gay marriage, loathing of children, and now even support for teenage girls being given contraception without their parents’ knowledge. Also, I cuss a lot and take the name of your Lord in vain on a near-daily basis.
So how mean and intolerant are the right? I’ll tell you.
The vast bulk of regular “traffic floods” to this site comes from none other than Conservative Grapevine and Right Wing News, both run by John Hawkins, a Christian who probably disagrees with at least a third of what I write, who’s also the only blogger to ever interview me and was the first blogger to ever link me. He sponsored me for BlogAds and has given me priceless advice.
What a jerk! You just can’t reason with conservatives can you? If you don’t toe their line and share all their beliefs, why, they’ll….they’ll…do you huge favors on a regular basis. If that’s not intolerant and hateful, I don’t know what is.
Thanks for the kind words, Rachel!
