Would you marry me, marry me? 그대와 함께 하고 싶죠…

Yeah, I’m still listening to Korean music. Love this song though…but the dancing in the video?. Um. Well.

Does Sung Hoon have eyes? Or are those glasses covering up bottomless wells of luv? Anybody know?

Okay, so moving on…

Rally round the family with a pocket full of shells…because there will be no pictures of you and Willie May pushing that shopping cart down the block on the dead run, or trying to slide that color television into a stolen ambulance

*sigh* People, let’s talk about this UK riot situation.

I know, I know. It was a whole week ago, now. Aaaages ago. But, in the grand tradition of CP time…here we go.

First, the factual, woman on the street stuff. I’m bad at that, so I’m going to send you  here, to  Spinster’s Compass, where a fellow expat(and ‘net friend) breaks down the aftermath of the London riots in pictures and video interviews. Very well done, and worth a look.

For what happened in my city, the good ol’ Manky Manc, check out this blog entry over at Talking To Myself…a quick bird’s eye view from someone who lives in the Manchester city centre, practically.

Now let me pray to keep you from the perils that will surely come…

If you consider yourself pro-life but are not also pro-child, then you are two faced and a liar.

If you vote for initiatives that make it difficult for a woman to terminate a pregnancy, but also vote against initiatives that would improve education, foster social change, and make health care more widely accessible for all households, you are a part of the problem, not the solution.

If you have fifteen virulent anti-abortion bumper stickers on your card but have never babysat for a young single mother or stood up to give a pregnant woman your seat on a crowded city bus, you’ve wasted your money on those stickers.

If you believe that adoption is always an option but would never adopt a child yourself even if you have the capability to–then you’re offering condemnation, not solutions.

If you do not value children, women and families–ALL children, women, and families, not just your own or those you feel comfortable with–but still believe that abortion and birth control and family life are valid issues for you to participate in the legislation of based on your lofty moral values, then you really don’t have any values at all.

Today’s title quote is from here:

Oh, and one more (unrelated) thing–

If you believe that gay marriage should be illegal based on the idea that marriage is sacred, but you still watch the Bachelor or the Bachelorette on TV–well, then you’re just silly.

America, America, God shed his grace on thee…

I don’t talk about politics, I really don’t, but it’s hard to get away from at the moment.

However, this is just some ridiculous fraggle-naggle…

*smh* Does Focus on the Family ever remind anyone ELSE of Octavia Butler’s “Christian America”, in Parable of the Sower?

Non-news related, vaguely spiritual post coming up soon, I promise…

They still call it the White House, but that’s a temporary condition too…

Oh hells yes!

Like I said, I don’t talk about politics much, but…
