[fades] browns and reds


best analysis of Sarah Palin ever...

"As a moose-hunting Jesus-fearing hockey-mom mother of five who hunts moose, Sarah Palin isn't some petty Washington bureaucrat. She's a petty Alaskan bureaucrat, and she's gonna shake things up in Washington! For her first reform she will pose for photographs with a gun and a stuffed moose head! For her second reform she will say something bold and brassy. For her third reform she will give birth at a live press conference to six eagle scouts, three peregrine falcons and an American mastodon, rear them in the Christian faith and release them into the wild before hunting them down, shooting them and mounting their heads in the Roosevelt Room!"
[fades] browns and reds

Boredly tolerant of everything except...

I don't think this has come up recently, but as far as I know, the only controversial group that's tried to associate itself with the Unitarian Universalist Association and caused major distress by doing so is a UU polyamory group.

Pretty much any group that's not actually harmful can find a place under the UU umbrella, but it's mildly interesting that this one would cause knee-jerk reactions. I guess it's the old association of poly- and hedonism.

Dunno why that's in my head right now, just a stray thought. I guess the slippery slope would be the fear that the UU's would be obligated to push for legal rights for poly relationships. It does seem like a difficult tangle of thorns to work with. You don't want to be the wife-swapping, swingers church.

Dunno. Dun even no why I'm thinking about this.
