ONE: Maine Middle School Handing Out Birth Control. King Middle School will become the first middle school in Maine to make a full range of contraception available, including birth control pills and patches. Condoms have been available at King’s health center since 2000. Arg…
TWO: Church Ordered to Pay 11 Million Dollars. I’m really not a believer in suing people, and I especially hate to see a church getting sued, but I have to say I have no sympathy towards these idiots who got slammed with an 11 million dollar settlement in a legal case against them. People who carry signs that say, “God hates fags,” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers,” make me want to puke. Sheesh…
THREE: Childress, Texas to Vote Tomorrow on Going Wet or Staying Dry. Tomorrow will be a historic day for those of us in Childress, Texas. Tomorrow we go to the polls to decide if Childress county will begin to sell and serve alcoholic beverages or remain a dry county as it always has been.
Those in favor of going wet say we’re missing out on tax dollars. Those against going wet say the sale of alcohol will bring bars and other problems into our city that aren’t worth the extra tax dollars.
Our local paper has been bombarded by letters from both sides. I’ve found it interesting that all those staying dry have signed their names on their letters. Those who want to go wet have yet to be willing to sign their name or say who they are. The one letter that was signed in the local paper from the “going wet” side was signed by a made up name. I’m not sure what all that means, but it makes me think if going wet is so right … why are they so ashamed to admit they support it?
I think every religious organization in town has written letters opposing going wet. I too, wrote a letter that was published a week ago. I’d like to ask that when you say your prayers today, that you’d include a little prayer that Childress makes a good decision on this when they vote tomorrow.
Tomorrow I’ll share with you the letter I wrote and some more information on the “wet or dry” arguments in Childress.
