The politics of 666...

God, I'm so sick of hearing about today being "666" day. You know, like it was a national holiday. Well, first of all, it's not. Shrub's taking care of that next week. And secondly, it's not even 666. Technically, it's more like 6606.

Now, literal interpretations of the Bible aside... and the fact that this 666 mania doesn't even come close to the most wrong interpretation of the Bible presently preached by Pat Robertson... aren't there more important things to deal with right now? Isn't there a war going on? Isn't our government presently raping us anally with every truckload of money they give to the rich?

Let's start with what Shrub's doing this week: pushing for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, an amendment to institutionalize discrimination, an amendment to indoctrinate hate. Well, let's see... if God is love, wouldn't Satan be hate? And who's pushing hate this week?

I'm just saying...

Don't even get me started on the Gay Marriage thing. For the life of me I can't figure out WHO it hurts if two same sex people want to be married? AND further to that point gay marriages tend to last longer than hetro marraiges.

On the 06-06-06 thing...one of the blogs I stalk wrote an interesting thing about it. She was studying to be a priest so I figure she knows something about this.

"Oh and btw, the "beast" that the book of Revelation was actually referring to was the Emporer Nero, who was not a nice guy to the early Church. "Six hundred threescore and six" is a numerological rendering of his name. So unless you're afraid of long-dead emporers, I think you're safe from this beast."
