Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

One thing I wish I could literally pound into Christian heads

If there is one thing I wish I could literally pound into Christian heads, it's this: Christianity is not the source of all that is good and righteous in our society. Other cultures and other faiths have contributed heavily. It's amazing that I even have to mention this where one house of the national legislature is called the Senate and the other has a ceremonial fasces. Even The Magnificent Seven was a remake.

A protest against Paganism

Christian morality (so called) has all the characters of a reaction; it is, in great part, a protest against Paganism. Its ideal is negative rather than positive; passive rather than action; innocence rather than Nobleness; Abstinence from Evil, rather than energetic Pursuit of Good: in its precepts (as has been well said) 'thou shalt not' predominates unduly over 'thou shalt.'
     — John Stuart Mill, On Liberty

Taproot: Through the Woods

The book

The Woods. Summer weekends meant the family would escape the Phoenix heat. In the fall Dad insisted we come to watch the aspen turn. In the winter we would come to play in the snow. After the stepsibs moved away and it was just teenage me with the folks, we'd still come to enjoy the woods. I will always be the desert guy who Visits The Woods.

Aside for polyamory - revised

Thinking by blogging

It’s one of the few sexual labels that I bother with. It’s not that I disapprove of labels like gay, lesbian, transgender, and all the others. It’s just hard to see how the label applies to me unless we have sex.
