Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…"
The Founding Fathers didn't say "Obama shalt not decree" and thus our First Gay President is determined to force military chaplains into officiating at same-sex "marriage" ceremonies.
The Obama Administration said it "strongly objects" to a pair of amendments to the 2013 defense authorization bill that would prohibit same-sex marriages on military property and would also protect the religious freedom of military chaplains and service members who are opposed to same-sex marriage.
The two amendments passed the House Armed Services Committee and are expected to be voted on Friday, said Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO).
Akin authored an amendment that would protect military personnel who object to homosexuality based on their moral beliefs. He said military chaplains have faced censorship for their opposition to gay marriage.
"There is a war on religious belief in the military," Akin said. "Chaplains and service members should not face recrimination or persecution in the military for standing strong on their religious beliefs in opposition to homosexuality."
Akin's amendment creates a statutory conscience protection clause for members of the military — and specifically military chaplains.
"It says that chaplains who don't believe that it's right to have same sex marriage won't be forced against their conscious to perform those ceremonies and furthermore — they won't be punished because of their religious convictions."
Alas our enumerated First Amendment protection for religious liberty is no match for the invented "right" to unnatural marriage.
The Office of Management and Budget issued a statement Wednesday condemning the amendments, saying the Obama Administration "strongly objects" to the amendment — stating that it would "inhibit the ability of same-sex couples to marry or enter a recognized relationship under state law."
And get this, they base their objection on religious liberty grounds!
The OMB said the amendments are "potentially harmful to good order and discipline" and said any attempt to deny service members access to facilities for religious ceremonies on the basis of sexual orientation is "a troublesome and potentially unconstitutional limitation on religious liberty."
Homosexuality is a religion now?
You have to stick your head pretty far up your ass to view forcing chaplains to endorse homosexuality as a "limitation on religious liberty."
"Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."
It's part and parcel of the radical homosexual agenda to destroy religion. Morality is the only thing standing between them and eternal hedonism. So moraility must be eradicated lest any smidgeon of guilt creep up into what's left of their consciences.
If it feels good, do it. If it feels really good, do it in public. And denounce anyone who complains.
Should Obama succeed in defeating Rep. Akin's amendment I can only imagine what's next. Adam and Steve demanding to sashay down the aisle at Saint Patrick's Cathedral. With the full force of government staring down Cardinal Dolan to either allow it or lose his tax exempt status.
"Tolerance" for thee,
but not for me.
