Sunday Sermon 2a

Haven’t been to church yet this morning, so this isn’t the “what did I learn” message. But it might be.

Ms. Britney may not have been one of those people whining about “preserving the sanctity of marriage” by banning homosexuals from legally tying the knot, but she gives us a fine example of how much latitude the law gives to the word “sanctity”.

Ya think maybe a “joke marriage” might be a wee bit irritating to a gay couple who truly love each other and who can’t form a legal union? Or who face such strong opposition to it that Congress thinks we need a constitutional amendment to prevent such horror?

Nah! It was, as Campbell Brown put it on the Today show this morning, “a fun story.”

Oh, that Britney!

    Why do have to HAVE Britney Spears around, anyway? The chick can’t even sing (JMHO!)!

  4. Erica says:

    No, you’re right, she can’t really sing.

    You know, I hadn’t even considered this aspect of it until Sol brought it up. I may have to modify my entry about it now. 🙂

    On a somber note… I don’t usually post these types of stories, but this one really got to me. While Bush issued an edict banning media coverage of returning coffins, there’s a small town in Texas that came up with
