    that’s sad about the Iran case. There seems more to it but it’s still terrible.

    yay for John Mayer. He’s got a nice body.

    i’m sick of Jamaica, Buju and their hating on gays.

    The article about Maine (see the link above for the word ‘lauded’) stated, “A group called Catholics for Marriage Equality has staged walk-outs on Sunday services when the Church took up second collection plates on behalf of the ‘Yes on 1’ campaign,…”

    Don’t walk out. Document it instead, in case any rules were violated regarding the Catholic Church’s tax-free status. The IRS can get their attention far more effectively than you can if there were any rule violations.

    Unfortunately, religious groups are allowed to spend money on and advocate for or against political causes so long as they don’t spend a significant amount of their total income on said causes. Compared to the total budget of the Catholic church, the amount they will spend on this is nothing, so it will be legal. Much better to walk out and not go back- ever.
