Evening commute

I really need to remember that my commute is made considerably easier if I simply lock my bike up when I hang it on a peg. That way I have a wider range of choices as to seating.

Morning musings 9 Dec

Our iPhones were delivered yesterday. I'm very pleased with it! Picked up a bike computer app and am using it to see how much exercise I'm getting.

Right now I'm listening to The Third Reich in Power. Certain parallels between then and now present themselves.

Tonight I have QRC advisory board.

When the going gets weird, the weird get bizarre

A Christian minister in Minnesota said on his radio program that the nation's first Muslim member of Congress was soliciting the support of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community to implement Sharia law. Follow his logic with us, wouldn't you?

Bradlee Dean of the religious ministry You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International said on his radio program that Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) is only supporting LGBT rights as part of a strategy to bring Sharia law to the United States, the Minnesota Independent reported.

"I said time and time again that there is a correlation between the Muslims and the homosexual agenda, and we have a couple of fools in the state of Minnesota that are putting a rope around their neck and they just don't realize it," Dean said on a radio. "Here, let me give it to you this way: Keith Ellison is a Muslim."

Dear reasoned that Ellison's support of protections for the LGBT community (like the Matthew Shepard Act) and for same-sex marriage is part of a plot to overthrow the Constitution and put Sharia law in its place.

"Why is he so adamant about overthrowing the Constitution as it is right now? Because if you pay attention to the plow he's planting the seed," Dean said. "He's trying to come through with Sharee [sic] law."

Because, ya know, every Muslim-Majority nation is a paradise on Earth for queer people.
