It has been a good, but busy weekend. Doug had worked very late Wednesday and Thursday. We had a friend, Tim, stay with us this weekend and we were hoping to drive to San Francisco Friday night to meet him, but Doug was whipped. He just came home, ate dinner and went right to sleep. He slept until about 10 pm when Tim arrived at our place. Tim has his own blog called Balancing Boyfriends. We met Tim and his husband Tony at a bar in the Castro called Badlands. We hit it off right away. At dinner a few days later Tim told me that he blogs. I had no clue what that word even meant, so I can blame my obsession on blogging and reading blogs all on Tim!
Anyway, on Saturday we drove south an hour to Santa Cruz. We had an appt. with an accountant there and while Doug was taking care of that, Tim and I wandered around the downtown area. I can’t wait to go back. It was fun. We then had lunch and drove back to quickly change and then Doug and I drove off to San Francisco for a surprise birthday party for our good friend Brian. Tim had a function to go to in Tiburan. We then went out to dinner with our friends Michael and Thierry. After that Doug and I met up with Tim at Badlands.
Today has been very slow. We don’t drink (or I should say it is extremely rare that we drink alcohol) so I can’t blame being tired today on that. But the weather here has been great, so I can’t complain about having a lazy Sunday brunch with Tim before he flew back to Chicago and sitting outside reading in the yard.
I did check out some of my usual blogs. One, which I left a number of comments at, is called TalkWisdom. I’ve written about the blog and Christine before, so I won’t bore you with all the details now. She has started up yet another blog called Protect Biblical Marriage. I hope that I was able to leave the first comment there:
Why should your religion, which is clearly a choice, be forced on people who don’t believe the same thing as you? Do you think we live in a religious police state? I wonder how you would feel if another major religion like Buddhism was able to gather enough signatures to make meat-eating unconstitutional? Would you be persecuted by that? Or would you accept the will of the people? I already know the answer.
It seems to me that if people support this, they better be prepared to see similar ballot issues that will force other beliefs on the rest of the population.
Anyway, I suggest that people leave comments at this new blog. We know what side they are on. It is hard for me to understand their position–or at least understand why they think it is o.k. in this country to force their religious beliefs on the rest of us. What they seem to want is only for their own religious beliefs to be recognized and no one else’s. God forbid that someone of the Jewish, or Islamic faith get too much control in this country! 🙂
