Gay marriage.....blah blah blah


So I just watched this documentary about gay marriage in America. I find it so sad that we are actually taking the time to debate something like this. It is a civil rights issue, in my opinion. There is such a thing as separation of church and state in our constitution which means that we should not be bringing our religious views into lawmaking. Well, guess what, the religious right is once again trying to apply THEIR viewpoints onto everyone in society. Ok, so say you are Christian....you should know that even God (from a Christian view point) gives all of us free will. So what's the big deal about sex then? And if you want to argue the whole "what the bible says is..." arguement then I suggest you look into all the ways that the bible has been modified throughout the years. It is pretty obvious to me. Sex is just sex....that's all it is. It is really no big deal. We are the ones making it a big deal. Look at all the animals that do it. Now, since animals "have no soul" as so many seem to believe, then they apparently have no grasping of right or wrong, so are they going to hell too since they sometimes hump members of the same sex? hmmmm....something to ponder. The problem is that the people that are so adimately against gay rights are also the same people that need to focus on their own lives mirroring that of Christ. If you really want it in your face, I feel that Christ was a liberal democrat of sorts. Anyway, I guess it really doesn't matter what I think anyway. Oh well, someday all the closed-minded people will figure it out. But, by then, will it be too late?

In My Blood



Ok, so you may be asking yourself, "what's with the title of your blog?". So here goes. (Oh, and please forgive me if this isn't too interesting. This is my first attempt at a blog.)

See, I was in the Army for about 7 1/2 years and got out about 2 years ago. Well, now that I have drudged along in the sludgy daily slime of civilian life, working for corporations that didn't really care about me, I miss it alot more than I thought. Not only do I miss the comradery, but I also miss the feeling of being a part of something bigger, something important. And yes, I do most definitely miss all the hardcore fun stuff I got to do.

You see, this civilian life is wearing thin on me and making me yawn alot more than I thought it would. No matter how much I try to suppress it, I can feel that need for the pain, the struggle, and the hard work I used to do in the Army. So, it's like my warrior ways are still with me, and no matter what I try to do to get rid of them, they won't go away.

It must be in my blood.
