I couldn’t finish it.  I’ve been working a couple weeks on the concept, and only came up with the cliche scissors and Bill of Rights.  That, and the background is bare and I’m really running out of time to finish this cartoon…  Along with being rather angry at the whole affair.  Most recently the compromise that was not compromise…

Don’t be distracted by the contraception/abortion issue folks.  This is indeed government interference in religion, along with other past events its just a piece of whats been going on at an incredible rate the last four years.  NDAA before Christmas, SOPA/PIPA to distract us with something that had no hope of passage (tossing us a bone essentially), and now the DHHS mandating that religious organizations pay for services they have a strong moral conviction against.  Just one more nail in the coffin of Liberty that Obamacare has brought about by MANDATING how we pay for our healthcare, and what gets covered regardless of what we believe.

Amazing how the more liberal elements of the Democratic Party, and even the GOP, tend to forget that they claim to embrace religious tolerance in the face of the Tea Party’s success…  I especially find the DNC’s hypocrisy in this case to be very disturbing as they tend hold the lions share of Wiccan voters.  That is, at least what the DNC tries very hard to convey…  The reality is actually quite different.  I know of three non-Christian Pagan/Wiccan gun toting Conservative voters personally…  Believe me, they are just as miffed about the DNC’s lies about religious tolerance as I am (as a Roman Catholic).  But this is Alaska after all!

I say “NO”!  Zeal is not the enemy of mankind.  Nor is religion.  What is painfully obvious to me from recent news events (especially the James Lee incident at Discovery Channel, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/09/01/AR2010090104795.html and for the demands… http://www.savetheplanetprotest.com/) is that nuts are in every walk of life and point of view.  Atheists and EnvironMENTALists are just as much ‘religious zealots’ as Jihadist’s and Westboro Baptist [sic] Wackos.   Indeed, when one sees the work of Religious Zealots like Mother Teresa, Ghandi, or Martin Luther King Jr.; perhaps zeal in the right area is indeed an HONORABLE trait we need to embrace more often in our society.  Zeal doesn’t mean passion out of control like the current consensus seems to indicate, but rather an adherence to a path above and beyond the normal scope of society.  One certainly doesn’t consider it normal to drop everything, all earthly possessions, all wealth, all status, just to go forth out into the streets of Calcutta and embrace the lepers.   This takes zeal in every sense of the word.
