You can have YOUR soul extracted also . . . AND make a few bucks!

As Governor Romney and Attorney General Reilly work diligently to prevent marriage between two people of the same sex, others have been busy drafting a Constitutional Amendment codifying all marriages entirely on biblical principles.

After all, G-d wouldn't want us to pick and choose which of the Scriptures we elevate to civil law and which we choose to ignore:

Draft of a Constitutional Amendment to Defend Biblical Marriage:

* Marriage in Massachusetts shall consist of a union between one man
and one or more women. (Gen 29:17-28; II Sam 3:2-5.)

* In lieu of marriage (if there are no acceptable men to be found),
a woman shall get her father drunk and have sex with him. (Gen

* Marriage shall not impede a man's right to take concubines in
addition to his wife or wives. (II Sam 5:13; I Kings 11:3; II Chron

* A marriage shall be considered valid only if the wife is a virgin.
If the wife is not a virgin, she shall be executed. (Deut 22:13-21)
(This is where Governor Romney's resurrection of the Death Penalty
will come in handy.)

* Marriage of a believer and a non-believer shall be forbidden. (Gen
24:3; Num 25:1-9; Ezra 9:12; Neh 10:30)

* Since marriage is for life, neither the Constitution nor any state
law of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts shall permit divorce. (Deut
22:19; Mark 10:9-12)

* If a married man dies without children, his brother must marry the
widow. If the brother refuses to marry the widow, or deliberately
does not give her children, he shall pay a fine of one shoe and be
otherwise punished in a manner to be determined by law. (Gen.
38:6-10; Deut 25:5-10)

I hope this helps to clarify the finer details of the Government's
righteous struggle against the infidels and heathens among us.

Raging, important truths jump off the page,
with force to rattle our skeletons and jolt our hard drives.
O citizenry of the United States - alas - ye are not there to see it!
Staring as you are at the televisor hawkers peddling non-stop purchasables;
Next up is giving thanks for an excuse for shameless gluttony.
followed by endless Xmas disposable snake oil.
No time to think, it's tradition time; rituals of consumption and lockstep fantasy.
You'll jump from your sleep someday, surprised when the next buildings fall -
And cheer on a daddy when he screams he'll get the evildoers,
with promises to keep the reality lines between Middle Earth and Iraq
blurry and safe - for the holidays. . .for the elections.
(He'll even pose with mom and the fairy tale Queen for your photo album.)
But look! Outside the box that sits in your living room,
receiving manufactured signals from corporate headquarters everywhere,
there are truths that can open your eyes to life's real potentials and dangers.

"The wicked thing about both the little and the great 'collective faiths', prehistoric and historic, is that they all, without exception, pretend to hold encompassed in their ritualized mythologies all of the truth ever to be known. They are therefore cursed, and they curse all who accept them, with what I shall call the 'error of the found truth', or, in mythological language, the sin against the Holy Ghost. They set up against the revelations of the spirit the barriers of their own petrified belief, and therefore, within the ban of their control, mythology, as they shape it, serves the end only of binding potential individuals to whatever system of sentiments may have seemed to the shapers of the past (now sanctified as saints, sages, ancestors, or even gods) to be appropriate to their concept of a great society."
-- Joseph Campbell, from "Myths To Live By"

Entry, the first.
I have no soul. Please don't fret - it's okay - I really don't miss what I've never had. . .and from how others talk about theirs - something that glutenous I can do without. I have had various tests done on/to me by members of numerous religious (or as the younger folks like to say: "spiritual") persuasions and they all thoroughly agree with the absence of any nebulous supernatural substance floating around the vicinity of my ribcage. So the chicken soup is just for the body. Perhaps a book:"Existential Stew for the Soulless"?!
I would refer to a lover as a "chemical mate".  In the meantime - these notes:  scrawled as time allows and the organism demands. Onward!
