Bush to hold press conference supporting Fed. Marriage Amendment

If this is not explicitly dominionist, I will delete; however, I thought this last paragraph summed it up nicely -


"This is fundamentally both a civil rights and religious freedom issue and the president's position of supporting amending the constitution is just dead wrong," said Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. "This is simply to give ammunition to the so-called religious right just to show that the president is still with them."

Additionally, if you are so inclined, you can go here and sign your name; a postcard with your name on it will be hand delivered to congressional offices next Monday.

SubGenius v. Conservative Judge


I first heard about this issue here at [info]dark_christian, so I was surprised when it popped up in a local alternative weekly. For those who would like a combination update/summary, here's a link to the story about a mother who lost custody of her son because she is a member of The Church of the SubGenius.

If anyone has any other links they would like to add, please post them! (I'm especially curious about what happened to the original judge, as well as his connections.)

The Rockies Pitch Religion
Web only opinion piece by Dave Zirin

In a remarkable article from Wednesday's USA Today, the Colorado Rockies went public with the news that the organization has been explicitly looking for players with "character." And according to the Tribe of Coors, "character" means accepting Jesus Christ as your personal lord and savior. "We're nervous, to be honest with you," Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd said. "It's the first time we ever talked about these issues publicly. The last thing we want to do is offend anyone because of our beliefs." When people are nervous that they will offend you with their beliefs, it's usually because their beliefs are offensive.
I really couldn't care less about most sports, but I do see this as another indication of the slide toward religious control of every aspect of American life, which is of course the bottom line of the Dominionist agenda. This smells of discrimination in the workplace at the very least.
