[UPDATE: At least one other blog has launched a character assassination of some of us here on Moonhowlings. Actually, I haven’t been sent a single word that is true. That’s the sad part. How can people be so self-righteous and yet be so incorrect in their assumptions?]
The Torches and Pitchforks gathering at Manassas City Chambers scheduled for tomorrow night @ 7 pm just might have to take to the parking lot. The Manassas City Council will be holding a special meeting at 6:30 in the chambers. It will be difficult for 2 meetings to be held at the same place at the same time. Citizens time will be held and the same standards as any other Council meeting will be adhered to.
This meeting will follow a closed session with attorneys scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
Since this topic cropped up last week, I have read and heard the word ‘Christian’ thrown around quite a bit. That’s getting a little old. Plenty of good Christian people, as well as people of other faiths, will be in attendance at the City Council meeting supporting an upscale adult boutique. Some of the politicians who want to trumpet their religion to their base should be just as worried about dissing those folks who don’t consider themselves part of the Conservative Christian movement.
Hopefully there will be no witch hunts Tuesday night, even in the parking lot. Area residents need to examine what really constitutes pornography. Some folks need to rephrase how they say things. Personal sexual tools/toys/implements or whatever a person choses to call them are just that–PERSONAL. We don’t want government in every aspect of our lives. We don’t want to have to go to dark alleys to buy personal products. We don’t want to have to ask the pharmacists for condoms like used to happen in the old days and we don’t want to have to go across state lines to have access to birth control like my mother had to do in the 60’s when she lived in New Jersey.
Those who want to see something dirty will probably be very disappointed in KK Temptations. It isn’t going to be a porno shop–you know, one of those places men in trench coats are seen going into. If that’s what you think is coming to town, think again.
Its fine to be uptight and repressive about sexual matters if that is what your religion tells you do to. Its even ok to skip the Song of Solomon when reading the bible, if that’s what your minister, priest or rabbi wants. However, understand that some very good and decent people out there don’t necessarily agree with you.
