NEW PODCAST: “God Spreads Rabies!”



Advocates on both sides of this massive divide we’ve created repeat the same erroneous talking point – that marriage is a right, or perhaps a privilege accorded by the Constitution of the United States, which isn’t true.  There is absolutely no mention of marriage, the definition or personal rights – in the Constitution, which is the way I think it should be, because – I’m married, but I believe my marriage should not be approved by a State or by Federal Law, it doesn’t matter to me, I don’t need that sort of acknowledgement.  Further, it gives wide-reaching power to the State, the Federal government, the Supreme Court to control what is, essentially, personal choice.  I believe in limited government.  I don’t want the government telling me who I can marry, or who I can’t marry, or – and this is important – threatening to penalize me, either financially, or with jail time for refusing to acknowledge whom other people can marry or can’t marry.  It’s simply none of my business, and it should not be any of the government’s business.  They have guns, and flamethrowers.  They can kill your family and burn your house down if you don’t agree with them when they’ve written up new laws.  I don’t like that.

Tonight, we are introducing a new segment to BlissVille.  As you may or may not know, if you’ve been paying attention, this particular run of BlissVille episodes has paid tribute to an actor among men, William Shatner.  So this next piece is my wife, Bronwyn’s, intepretation of the classic “horrors of war” speech from the Star Trek episode, “A Taste of Armageddon”.  I hope you enjoy it.

I would pray for peace, if I were religious.  I would say listen we’ve just been thrown into the fray of sexual equality, give people time.  Wisdom is it’s own reward.  Peace and understanding are what matters.  The homosexual couples who were denied marriage licenses were preaching a fantastic doctrine of new Christianity, not the old fire and brimstone kill-the-pagans Old Testament stuff, but they didn’t want Ms. Davis to be imprisoned or fined or censured, and for that I applaud them.  That’s the way to go.


NEW PODCAST: “Ain’t That A Man” or “Skanked While You Sleep”


Andrew and I talk about men and women. We discuss the phenomenon of “man-shaming” – the idea being that men feel bad that they are men. They will go to great lengths to apologize for being men, for their enjoyment of grilling, for their willingness to allow their wives to pursue open marriages.

We talk about a woman’s inability to pass judgement on other women who engage in dangerous sexual activities, while, most tellingly, disconnecting from the same practices. We talk about Moria Greyland, and really the less said about that, the better. Enjoy!

It should go without saying (at this point) that Andrew and I have fairly loose tongues and we tend to pepper our speech with obscenity and profanity. This is because we record a podcast in an atmosphere where we like to be comfortable. If you are easily offended by harsh or foul language and terse pronouncements, don’t listen.

I hate the concept of “trigger warnings” – REALLY hate them, but you might not want to read these articles on a full stomach, and you also might want to take a long shower and gargle with Lysol!  Not that there’s anything wrong with that!
