Yikes! Actually, I really, really didn't like a lot of these questions....

How Liberal / Conservative Are You?

What is meant by Conservative or Liberal Ethics? I was most surprised by the "Personal Responsibility"score.
Not Sully. On the Huffington's Toast site, not Andrew posts:

But here goes: I’m officially an ex-Catholic. Yes, you read that correctly. Liberace has left the Cathedral. Truly, this has been the most difficult decision of my life. But how can I continue to lend my voice to Benedict XVI’s agenda of anti-gay pogroms? I love the Church; I’ll miss it terribly; but any religion that can’t tolerate my repeated intentional violations of its most basic moral precepts is no religion I want to be a part of. And while my belief in an omniscient deity whose will is unchanging is as strong as it’s ever been, I can’t help but ask myself, “Didn’t God learn anything from Stonewall?” Thus are Protestants made.

There’ll be an adjustment period, of course, but I’m already starting to feel at ease in my new home, the profoundly gay Episcopal Church. Like me, it’s an English transplant to America, and like me, it couldn’t be more enthusiastic about anal penetration.
Go read it all.

Mighty Sore. We went hiking and rock climbing at South River Falls for Mother's Day. Yesterday, I was sore, but today, I can barely move. Pictures are forthcoming.

Here's all the kids with their Mom:

Mother's Day 2005
That's Emilie, Joe, Debbie, Joy, and Sarah.

Perhaps I should try this?

(p.s. yes, the title of this post is a throwback -- or tip of the hat -- to this issue of Not Brand Ecch!)
