On Politics

Dear Christian Conservatives: Trying to legislate things like a specific stance on marriage, homosexuality, or indeed sexuality in general is like throwing sharp darts at a child with acne in the hope that his zits will pop. It might be effective, but you won't like the peripheral effects. There are many other ways to fight this battle, and I would be willing to bet you a million literal dollars that all of them are more effective than cramming one more piece of legislation or one more sophistic legal definition down everyone's throats.

More political thoughts are fomenting, but I will only write them down if, as the narrator says in Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise, "My ideas either clarify or depart altogether."
