    Take it easy on me.

    I promise this will absolutely be the last time I ever invite any of you to church.

      Yes, as the old Queen song goes, "Fight from the inside/right down the line..."

      Besides, what is more of a threat to marriage:  Two people of the same gender getting married, or election a president who is for endless war, further job loss and destruction of the economy for working folk, lack of heathcare, stress brought on by money woes, poor educational opportunity for our children, etc, etc, etc?

      •  Tks! Does Queen's "fight from the inside" mean (0+ / 0-)

        we oughta be lookin' at where we can win locally?  By taking the fight to inside of whatever institutions and organizations happen to be nearest and (perhaps dearest) to us?

        I'm pretty optimistic about Obama's chances at this point for all the reasons you mention (even the folks in the reddest of our states are gettin' pretty tired of endless fear, endless war, poor infrastructure and education).  

        What I'm hopin' now, considerin' that I've spent the better part of the past year working, praying and paying for Obama to get to where he's at today, is that we've now got a chance, a window of opportunity, for getting some work done locally on certain issues in the run-up to November, rather than just spinnin' our wheels fixating on the Obama-McCain horse race.
