Let’s say you were at the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear this weekend, you saw some goofy gaytheist giving away hugs, you got one, and now you’re here at his blog. So, what’s up with that?
Well, hi! Thanks for the hug! And more importantly, thanks for following-up and checking out my blog! (Make sure you “Like” it over on the left sidebar.)
For almost two years, I have used this blog as a place to call out privilege and try to raise awareness about deficits of social justice. In particular, I have tried to hammer home LGBT rights and really challenge religious ideas. Because heck, why not? Some have thought me angry, snide, and condescending, and sometimes I am those things, but sometimes snarky just doesn’t translate online.
Rather than come to the rally to be all journalisty, I wanted this weekend to be about love. I really do want this world to be a better place. I’m not here to turn people gay or round up Christians into concentration camps. I just want us to think a little bit more about life and appreciate the people around us. Hugs, in my opinion, are the the most sane things around.
So, take a look around. Leave some feedback. You’ll probably find some things here that you like and that you don’t like, and that’s okay! I hope you feel comfortable joining the discussion one way or the other. And regardless of whether you do, I appreciated meeting you and rallying beside you. Remember to vote this week, and most importantly: keep the rally going, because if we don’t have sanity, then fishburgers will gallivant across the solar plexus.
