I can’t believe I’m going to say this, in fact I may even deny it later because it’s horrifying to me, but I firmly and totally believe that Lindsay Lohan is right.
I was over at Lindsay Daily, trying to find the admin’s email, when I read THIS. I can’t believe it, Lindsay sounds so… level headed, lol. Now, I’m not a big fan of Lindsay – in fact, I don’t really pay much attention to her (she’s pretty, but there ain’t a lot to her, imo) but when someone’s right, you say so, even if you’d like to see them dropped into that hole full of coffins from Angel. Yes, I am a nerd.
It was some of the responses on the blog that caught me off guard, and here;s my two cents about the whole thing as commented on the post:
Uh, I’m sorry, I don’t remember the act of deluded Christian sin being something enforceable by a democratic government as an actual crime. If it were, it would be against the law to lie, talk back to your mother and wish you had your neighbor’s car. Granted, I generally don’t comment on fansites but this caught my eye and when I read through it I found myself agreeing with a lot of what Lindsay had to say.
Just because it’s in the bible, -and yes I know this is an unpopular opinion- doesn’t mean it’s right, either. This is the same book that was used to condemn ‘witches’, to justify black slavery, to steal land and kill off natives and even to condemn the Jews ( oh yeah, look it up ).
The bible is 2000 years old, even with the best intentions it was written before democracy, before women’s lib, when slavery was A-OK and women/children were the property of men. Just the notion that we can take anything more than implied wisdom from this book is ridiculous, but to each his own, the only issue I’ve got with it is that it’s used to force other people into a state of second class citizenship by taking away their rights, including the right to love, be with and marry whoever you choose. You can’t believe in true love and believe every word of the bible at the same time – it’s just not possible unless you’re really deluded. I’m in no way against the bible, I just think people should start using their noggins. If you believe in God, and believe your God is a loving deity, then judge not, dudes, he said it for a reason. See? He knew we couldn’t be trusted, lol.
To be honest, I don’t really follow Lindsay’s career or life, etc., but I have heard that she’s come out about dating a woman, and I think her fans if no one else should be supportive of her. Oh, and I agree with the statements about Palin – that woman scares the bejeesus out of me.
Honestly, shouldn’t this be common sense by now? I can’t be a ‘maverick’, here.
