yeah. blog against theocracy is coming up this weekend- and i am boycotting it. yeah. i know. there are so many folks out there losing sleep over it- i can hear ya'll snoring ya know. i thought about it pretty good before reaching my conclusion- because everyone knows how i feel about separation of church and state- and blogging to create solidarity. 2 big deals to me. no- there are a few reasons i am choosing to sit this one out- and it has to do with believing in something.
my buddy time asked me a week or so ago what it was i was doing- not in those exact words- but what it boiled down to was- what is it i am fighting for and against and really- just what the hell? my other buddy dan'l is fond of saying that you should be thinking about causes and issues on more than just the one day- although i did tell him that it raises awareness of the issue to folks who may not have heard about it to be aware- but i digress. so- with those two things in my mind already- i moved on to the third.
i can't in good conscience participate in an anti-theocracy blogswarm when there are so many fundamentalists participating. yep. now- just because they may or may not be christian fundamentalists- it makes no nevermind because they use the same tactics on their blogs. see- i read quite a few blogs- and no, that isn't a threat. up till now- i haven't named a few of the blogs i call out because i don't want the gang mentality to happen. they have a right- as of right now- to speak their mind as i do on their blogs- and i have no business sending folks over there for a bashing. but that's why.
you cannot in all seriousness- pursue the same tactics that you allegedly condemn in others- and feel righteous and justified. it's called hypocrisy. that's why it is important to have separation of church and state- but it's also important to be able to have more than a two party system for elections. these folks may be well meaning but they are splintering the democratic party- and for that- they have my contempt. not because i love the democratic party but because they are no different than the neocons they say they so desperately want to get rid of.
so- participate if you wish- i will highlite the link here- you can read or write- but i shan't. because as much as i believe in the cause- i can't support the supporters this time. please do check out first freedom first- they are independent of the swarm.
