It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times. Welcome to the irregular times.

Kim Davis claims that it isn’t just her opinion that makes same-sex marriages invalid. She says that, in denying marriage licenses to gays and lesbians, she is operating under “God’s authority”. Never mind that little old thing they call the law. […]
You say super hero…
… and I say saint…
… and a Bible isn’t anything but a comic book with more words.
