"Slaves, be obedient to those who are your earthly masters, with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as to Christ." (Ephesians 6:5)

A very telling map, wouldn't you agree? I suppose history never really gets over itself. Today's division is the same as the one over slavery, and the mentality of Americans really hasn't changed much, with the slavery-loving red states pretty much as hateful as they were back then. Then again, the Bible condones slavery, so they think they're still right. If Scalito votes to overturn Roe, the Bible(TM) thumpers will need another cause- why not reinstitute slavery? Shoot, we 'ave so many of them illegas...

Sound ridiculous? Of course it does, but so do the things that come out of their mouths (Hurricane Katrina was caused by gays, being "pro-life" and also pro-death penalty, pro-guns, and pro-war... you know, the illogical rhetoric we hear from the mouths of Limbarf and Co.) What makes it less ridiculous are the stories circulating about Dyncorp and KBR human trafficking. Gotta satisfy the pedophelic needs of those defense contractors! Sick. It's just sick! How the hell can the people who run these corporations sleep at night? Slavery? This is the 21st century! And the red states are the ones who support this war! My country, right or wrong? Wrong, wrong, WRONG!

I read a comment today by some righty about how we "owe our allegiance to this country who gives us our freedom." We are not free. None of us is free until all of us are free. Or maybe that just applies to those of us with a conscience.
