A while back, I thought of describing anti-gay people as "phallic idolaters," since they obviously think some things are too sacred to go inside other things.

This puts me in mind of something the songwriter Garnet Rogers said when introducing a very beautiful and very depressing song written by his late brother Stan:

I've always found the example of Ireland to be inspiring -- that a country with no blacks or jews can still improvise.

Every so often I become ashamed of my Jewish heritage. This is one of those times... my relatives were sent to concentration camps along with gays and now my people want those who suffered alongside them to be smited? This is both infuriating and disgusting.

A Jew, a Christian and a Muslim walk into a bar.
The Jew says: There are no Jewish homosexuals.
The Christian says: There are no Christian homosexuals.
The Muslim says: There are no Muslim homosexuals.

That’s it. That’s the joke. Well, no. Actually these are all quotes, but I heard them over the radio (I’m from Israel) and not in a bar. The bar makes it all work, though.

In times like this I wonder where the world would be if it wasn’t for religion.
We would probably find other stupid reasons to fight about, but we would than be deprived of such pearls of wisdom.
