Vote for Love

Google has an ad for Prop 8 on my blog today (and everyone that uses Google AdSense). Wow - they must have a LOT of money. I'm not going to remove AdSense for one day, then put it back. But it's not my idea to have it there.

Please know that the opinions expressed on this blog are solely those of its owner. While I might tell you how I'm voting, (which would, I'm sure, bore you to tears, and you wouldn't care anyway) I'm not going to tell anyone else how to vote. Not that you'd listen to my pea-brained reasons, anyway.

Just know that my underlying motives for voting propositions the way I do come back to this:

Is it kind?
Is it just?
Does it best serve the majority of the people, or a select few?
Does it advocate stewardship of the earth, our money, our time?
Does it demonize someone that is created in God's image?

I will tell you to vote, though. Vote your conscience, vote your pocketbook, spin-the-vote, whatever. Just vote, okay? And remember the old adage, if you don't vote, I don't want to hear you complain.

Usually, I stay out of politics. But, as a straight married guy (I'm sure that dream I had about watching Pee Wee Herman and Sylvester Stallone play Naked Frisbee didn't mean anything), I don't understand what the fuss is about. If two gay people get married, it has absolutely no bearing on the integrity of my marriage.

I just don't get it. I'm no Bible scholar, but I've read the Four Gospels a time or two, and I don't recall one instance of Jesus condemning homosexuals. Not one.
