Neverland

Not only do the "moral" among us wish to stop progress in the sciences, they'd be much seeing the legislated moral codes of the past more rigorously enforced:
March 30, 2005 | WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) -- A former sheriff's dispatcher who quit her job after her boss found out she lived with her boyfriend is challenging North Carolina's law against cohabitation.

Debora Hobbs said she was told to get married, move out, or find another job after her boss found out about her living situation. The legal arm of the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina filed the lawsuit Monday on her behalf.

The lawsuit seeks to abolish the nearly 200-year-old -- and rarely enforced -- law that prohibits unmarried, unrelated adults of the opposite sex from living together. North Carolina is one of seven states with such a law.

Convicted offenders face a fine and up to 60 days in jail.

"The government has no business meddling in the private relationships of consenting adults," said Jennifer Rudinger, executive director of the ACLU-NC Legal Foundation.
Silly Ms. Rudinger. In the view of Left Behind crowd, meddling in the private relationships of consenting adults is the ONLY purpose of government. From attempting to permit doctors to refuse care to homosexual patients in Michigan, to defending pharmacists from dispensing medications with whose "morality" they disagree, to invading the "sanctity" of marriage which they're otherwise so eagerly and constantly screeching about by parachuting into the Sciavo case, the sanctimonious creeps who'll be (o happy day!) sucked up to their reward during the Rapture see government as nothing less than the opportunity to force everyone to ostensibly live as they profess to, but have so much difficulty actually managing.

These people NEED government to protect them from their own ungoverned appetites. Refusing to become adults, they want a perpetual, deathless Daddy to lecture and hector them, and everyone else, to keep them on the straight and narrow which they are unable to find with both hands and a compass.

Is anyone else uncomfortable with a nation directed by sanctimonious, hypocritical children?

I prefer to think of them as modern pharasees. And yes I am uncomfortable with them.

I especially resent, and find offensive, their clearly hypocritical claim to being Christian.
