This guy sings the hits

Whoever he is … he’s spot on. He looks like that guy from that comedy troupe that I can’t quite remember at this very second.


It’s Michael Ian Black! I think. I finally remembered he was from “The State,” the short-lived show on Mtv. But he was also on a series of Internet shows that I LOVED called “Stella” which became a TV show.

In a weird turn of cultural oddness, I’m about to say that “The Internet show was better than the TV show” en lieu of “The book was better than the movie.”



The Prehistory of Prop 8

Marriage as the union between one man and one woman has been the universally-recognized understanding of marriage not only since America’s founding but for millennia.”

—Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, in response to the recent finding that gay people have a fundamental right to form families based upon legal marriage.

Having just co-authored a book where we survey the concept of marriage across many cultures, I’m calling B.S. on Mr. Perkins. He hasn’t got a clue what he’s talking about.

But Perkins isn’t alone in his vehement ignorance. A common refrain among those arguing against allowing same-sexmarriage is that doing so would alter a long-standing trans-cultural definition of marriage. Rick Warren, the controversial evangelist Obama invited to speak at his inauguration, told Ann Curry in an NBC interview that, “For five thousand years, every single culture and every single religion has defined marriage as a man and a woman.”


You fit a stereotype

Congratulations! According to this web site, you fit a stereotype … unless you’re a christian.

The link in stereotype above connects you to the best imitation of yourself that you’ve never read.

If I wasn’t so busy thinking the “trinity was irrelevant,” I’d write the web site a nasty email telling them something mean.

I guess this is the best arsenal versus the “bad guys.”

Be sure to check out the stereotypes for “Marty the Mormon” and “Sid the Satanist”.
