Over the Rainbow

  1. This is not good news to everyone. You might want to be careful using any part of Scripture to support something unbiblical.

    1. I got all leaky eyed when I saw all the happy people and heard the happy comments on the news. I grinned too because everyone was joyful. There was a parade last night--a big parade--that overflowed into today! But last night, I grabbed my pad and finished a drawing I'd abandoned a couple of weeks ago. I rushed to finish it before midnight since I wanted to congratulate friends and family, and everyone who worked so hard for that moment. I'm happy for everyone who has been denied their basic civil rights, and a civil ceremony cements a marriage as solidly as any religious rite created by man. But, yes, I know that not everyone agrees with the news. Humans seldom agree on most things, and it's our right, don't you think?

      There's an admonition in scripture about not suffering a witch to live. The Bible also says we should not kill. I was a kid when I first heard such contradictions, and I've spent my adult life searching the Bible's origins as a result. I believe we should love one another as we are loved by our creator. I believe we should love God above all else. I learned that in Sunday school. The last time I was in a church was for a funeral, yet I remember the basic principles for living a decent life..

      I admire you for speaking your mind. Will you tell me why I "might want to be careful using any part of Scripture . . ." when I was thinking of the Declaration of Independence when I gave voice to the cartoon? As in "The Supremes have declared . . ." :)

      I appreciate your comment.

    2. I appreciate your comments and I can see your kind heart rejoicing with others but that they are rejoicing does not make it right. God has spoken very clearly, not ambiguously about homosexuality. And that we now live under a government that not only condones this but has institutionalized it, does not bode well for this country. We are now walking down an irreversible path and I am grieved for it.

      While I do not understand everything I read in the Bible, I don't believe there are contradictions - at least I have not found them. Reading the Bible as a whole, not just pulling verses out of context, does make for a better understanding of the flow.

      "In the beginning" - starts the Bible in Genesis as well as starts the Gospel of John. I misunderstood your usage of this and didn't associate it with the Constitution. Sorry for that. My mind automatically went to Scripture.

  2. Cute. A perfect way to express the current events.

    1. Thank you. I was so happy for everyone. I know how some of them feel. Women are still discriminated against in so many ways. We all deserve equal rights. It's one of America's founding but unfulfilled principles! Equal pay for equal work will benefit men in the long run. If a woman earns as much as she is worth she won't need so much child and spousal support. Sorry! :) I'm off and running.

      Thanks for commenting.

    1. I hope I get a chance to hug your neck someday! :) I saw coverage of the celebration there. People just want their basic human rights, don't they? :)

      Thanks for commenting.
