Tea and Crumpets

Well, more like coffee and cookies. The Power Liberal and After School Snack each have posts out there today about how the homosexual-friendly left is oppressing the right with...snacks. It seems the Girl Scouts are tainting the wholesome image of their cookies by bringing in Dr. Johnnetta Cole and Kavita Ramdas (extra link) to speak at their national convention. The problem? "The choice of the first two speakers indicates that the Girl Scouts show no sign of slowing their plunge into hard-core feminism and political advocacy, at least at the national level." Plunge into political advocacy? I would hope so, particularly if they have Boy Scout equivalent badges like "Citizenship in the Community", "Citizenship in the Nation" and "Citizenship in the World". I'd hope they'd actually fulfill one of the requirements for the middle one by attending the convention and talking to two women that should be role models for anyone who calls themselves a concerned woman.

Starbucks is in trouble with the exact same organization (Concerned Women for America - that's right, they're wiki-able, you don't have to actually link to them) over their new marketing campaign, which puts quotes on their coffee cups where they can infect the minds of caffeine-addled Seattle liberals. It just so happens that one quote is by Armistead Maupin: "I surrendered my youth to the people I feared when I could have been out there loving someone. Don't make that mistake yourself. Life's too damn short." There are conservative quotes as well, if your coffee isn't bitter enough. Unfortunately, I only have a Caribou at hand in my company, so I'm going to have to write quotes on the outside of my own coffee cup. Fortunately, there are plenty of sources...
The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision. ~Lynn Lavner

If homosexuality is a disease, let's all call in queer to work: "Hello. Can't work today, still queer." ~Robin Tyler

We are not the first but I am sure we will not be the last. After us will come many other countries, driven, ladies and gentleman, by two unstoppable forces: freedom and equality ~ Jose Luis Rodrigueaz, Prime Minister of Spain (in a speech given after Spain legalized gay marriage)
