A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

The War Department demands Blue Bell Ice Cream...

...and for once I'm very glad of that. Found this via The Telegraph of the UK.

Ben and Jerry's has changed the name of one of its best-selling ice creams to Hubby Hubby, in celebration of the legalisation of gay marriage in its home state of Vermont.

The flavour formerly known as Chubby Hubby will be sold under the playful new name for the length of September.

Ben and Jerry's has developed a reputation for social activism – and smart publicity stunts – since being founded by two former hippies in Burlington, Vermont in 1978.

The firm has striven to retain its freethinking reputation despite its 2000 sale to food giant Unilever, and earlier this year marked Barack Obama's election as US president by renaming one of its nutty ice cream flavours "Yes Pecan".

The state of Vermont's decision to issue marriage licences to same-sex couples, which came into force on Tuesday, was deemed suitable grounds for another celebration.

“At the core of Ben & Jerry’s values, we believe that social justice can and should be something that every human being is entitled to,” said Walt Freese, chief executive of Ben & Jerry’s.

“From the very beginning of our 30 year history, we have supported equal rights for all people. The legalisation of marriage for gay and lesbian couples in Vermont is certainly a step in the right direction and something worth celebrating with peace, love and plenty of ice cream.”

Vermont is following Iowa, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire in approving gay marriage laws, while legislation allowing same-sex unions in California was overturned following a referendum.

Chubby Hubby, which is not sold in Britain, contains chocolate-covered peanut butter-filled pretzel nuggets.

So how often do those of us adhering to traditional values hear that we shouldn't place our beliefs in the public square? Just what is this if not shoving an endorsement of gay marriage into the face of John & Joan Q. Public?

How often are we told, "...judge not lest you be judged..." by some sanctimonious fool who displays the entire extent of their Biblical knowledge with that single statement? If this endorsement doesn't require "judgement" of some kind I'll eat my keyboard.

Hell will freeze before I ever buy from Ben & Jerry's.

By the way, Blue Bell doesn't taste half bad.

There are two simple responses to moves such as this one by Ben & Jerry's. The first is to simply boycott the company's products. The second is to tell them why, in writing. I've already done the first. I think I will make the time to do the second.

Man I'll be avoiding Ben&Jerry's like the plague from now on.
