They can't be serious. Haven't they heard that everyone has the right to their own opinion.

I'm an atheists and I think it's unfair.

Not to mention it's a violation of the first amendment--ya know, a little thing called "the right to freedom of religion". And for EXTRA hypocrisy points...this is the same state that proposed the bill that would give employers the right to fire female employees who were on the pill to prevent contraception under the guise that it was protecting employer's right to "religious freedom" to "exercise their morals".

Words can't describe how thoroughly p*ssed off I am. The right to religious freedom IS NOT the same as "the right to impose your beliefs on other people and then whine about how you're the victim when they live by their own beliefs". What it means is the right to choose to worship or not worship without government interference. Telling companies that it's not okay to fire women who are on the pill IS NOT a violation of your right to religious freedom. Telling high school students that it's not okay to not subscribe to the same religious beliefs as their politicians and that if they don't lie about their beliefs they'll never be allowed to graduate IS violating their right to religious freedom. It's the EXACT SAME THING as discriminating against any other religion. And if there's anyone who actually thinks this is RIGHT and that there is absolutely NOTHING WRONG with trying to control women's reproductive rights or a teenager's religious beliefs...they are living in denial.

Its just hit me as I'm writing my next cluedo mystery and attempt at a murder mystery novel that I have a penchant for always picking female killers.

Any amateur psychologists want to have a stab at explaining why?

So does that mean that the next killed is female?

You're trying to pick the character who's least likely to commit the murder?
That one time years ago I wrote a murder game, I let a friend pick two card blindly from a pile to decide the killer and weapon.

Inbetween laying new carpet and going off to Paris, I went to the carnaval parade. Made lots of photos and film.

Has anyone else seem it and if so, do you think it's worth watching?
