Work-shopped my paper today with a pretty decent response. To be honest, I was more elated to hear my professor confess her atheism than any of the other feedback I received from my peers. It began with a simple “Blame my mother.” and went on to explain how her encouragement of my eclectic and almost ravenous reading habits is what lead me to reading the Bible and thus losing my faith. I don’t actually blame my mother so much as thank her.
So then I came home to this wonderful email from Courage Campaign with the great news that the Ninth Circuit Appeals court upheld the original ruling on Prop 8: IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
Score one for the secularists. Well, score 2. I’m proud of you guys.
