Taboo Topic

bridgeTed Cruz? I do not think so. Not sure about Hillary either although I have grown fonder of her over the years.

It’s too early (for me) to get into the 2016 election and it is waaaay too early for me (in my life) to emulate my old coot’s Stick It phase. I do think that I am getting into his much earlier If He’s a Politician, His Mouth Is Open phase. My Old Coot was not much of a politician, at least in terms of running for office. When I was a kid, he was a lowly bank manager who responded to calls from the police in the middle of the night if the bank was found unlocked, among other things. But that’s a whole ‘nother story. I believe he was a wonderful politician in terms of his career and community. He sat back and observed what his individual customers needed and didn’t ever run his mouth unless he had something to say. Something like that.

I do not practice a religion. I did not bring my children up in a religion. I grew up going to a mainstream protestant church (Central United Methodist) and the GG was brought up Catholic (Shrine of the Little Flower). I have many good memories of my childhood church and a few very bad ones. Am I a Christian? Maybe. But I am also an agnostic and I have not attended church regularly since I was a child. I do believe in the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. That is one of the rules I try to live my life by. Am I always perfect? Alas, no. Does the conservative Christian religious right actually practice that philosophy? I’m sure some do. Unfortunately, I have experienced the hypocrites first hand.

If this blahg entry doesn’t make much sense it’s because I was multi-tasking last night, talking to a certain visitor who took over the front room to work on a special secret prodject.

    I’m not agnostic, but the opinions and actions of any far right religious believers(zealots) make me sick to my stomach. Thus, I swing harder left than I probably would normally to avoid those types, whether they are Christians, Muslims or Jews. I consider myself more of a moderate. Patt, the libertarian, liked Hillary. Ashley, as a progressive, doesn’t. She would prefer Elizabeth Warren.
