Whyizzit?

Whyizzit I’m supposed to respect the beliefs of Muslims, Hindus, gays, new-agers and every ethnic minority or majority, but in movies and on the streets my Savior is given all sorts of middle names I know he never had, His name used as casual profanity. And I’m just supposed to deal with it, get a thicker skin? Salman Rushdie writes Satanic Verses and gets a death sentence. I can go to jail for opposing homosexual curriculums in my son's kidnergarten. Yet I'm supposed to suffer through garbage like "Dogma," "Saved" and "The Last Temptation of Christ" without so much as a raised eyebrow?

Whyizzit I can’t talk about salvation by grace in a school after hours, but I can learn about homosexuality in social studies?

Whyizzit my child will get suspended from school if his drawing in art class is about violent death, but the school nurse can refer my daughter to a clinic where her unborn child will suffer a violent death?

Whyizzit we want to ban Tom Sawyer and Huck Fin because they contain racial slurs, but Grand Theft Auto II and Gansta Rap are protected speech?

Whyizzit a college professor who supports intelligent design becomes the laughing stock of his department, while another college professor suggests that victims of terrorism “had it coming” and becomes a rallying point for academic freedom?

Whyizzit the “right to privacy” apparently protects sodomy and abortion, but we can’t seem to do anything about the swarms of paparazzi who make the lives of popular actors a living hell?

Whizzit the media keeps talking about the just ratified "US-backed Constitution" in Iraq, thus perpetuating the viewpoint that the new Parliment is nothing more than a puppet-government?
Whizzit one parent complaining can stop a coach from praying with his teammates before a game, but another parent complaining can't restart it?

Whizzit that Child Protective Services get more money the more children they take away from their families?
The new law provides states with cash incentives to find permanent homes for children in foster care. A state will receive $4,000 in federal funds for each foster child adoption which exceeds a base number of foster care adoptions in a fiscal year, and an additional $2,000 for special needs adoptions. In fiscal 1998, the base number will be the average of adoptions in the previous 3 fiscal years. In succeeding years, through 2002, the base is the number of adoptions of the preceding fiscal year. States are to use the federal funds to provide post-adoption services to children and families.
Whizzit this world seems to have gone completely friggin' crazy?
