It is Friday, so if you have the weekend off we have a few
events that may be of interest. We’ll list some that caught
our eye then end with the usual nonsense.
Now through Sunday is the Meltdown Drags at the Byron
Illinois Dragway in Byron, Illinois.
And tomorrow, Saturday July 16 is the “Rollin in the
Oldies” Cruise Night held at NorthPark Mall in Davenport,
Iowa. Things kick off around 5 pm.
Iowa’s slogan used to be “Is this Heaven?”. Now it seems
the Iowa Civil Rights Commission has stated that it is
against the law to preach the Bible! Their reasoning is
simple if not idiotic. You can read one story on it here.
Said Commission claims that since churches are places of
public accommodation they cannot discriminate against
anyone on the basis of sexual orientation. Yes, fellow
Iowans and Christians nationwide, the Civil Rights
Commission interpreted Chapter 216 of the Iowa Code to mean
that if a pastor discusses anything in the Bible that
relates to sexuality or marriage, he has broken the law!
Isn’t it about time we give these groups a reality check?
If you aren’t religious, don’t go to church. If some of the
Bibles used in said churches offend you, don’t go to
church. The government cannot tell us what our Bibles can
or cannot say. We need to stop the nonsense.
And now I go in search of something that looks like a
pizza, smells like a pizza, and burns my mouth like a
pizza. I need a little something to put out the fire from
from chicken with sweet chili sauce I consumed earlier.
Have a great weekend, ensure you have enough pizza in case
of a storm, and keep the shiny side up.
