You know who I feel sorry for? The kids...

... of people who think that naming them after religious ideas is clever and will help them. NO! Take my brother's best friend for instance. He and his girlfriend got pregnant at a fairly young age (well 21 isn't THAT young I suppose - but I'm 28 and I still think I'm too young). Now, I'd like to think that in this day and age, you would understand how a child can be ridiculed for a name it seems their parents chose while high. They decided to name her Nevaeh.

If I had a famous father like Meghan McCain...

I certainly would be doing a better job with it. I'm sorry, this may not be the perfect forum for my views on her, but what she represents happens to be a part of what I find to be harmful when religion mixes with politics... aka most of the Republican Party.

Jesus Camp

So... I just got done watching the Jesus Camp documentary that A&E did. One word: scary. Those poor, poor children being robbed of their innocence and youth. I am terrified for these kids... and terrified at the adults they may become.



The lunatic camp leader reminds me of a child molester. She's preying on children in a way that rivals actual physical abuse. How dare she make these kids cry and scare the shit out of them. Wasn't Jesus love? Why on earth would you call them names… Continue
