To all these people demanding religious exclusions ...

To all these people demanding religious exclusions in health insurance and employment laws, especially those who insist that we be a Christian nation (because you have yet to give equal volume to the opinion that religion includes other faith traditions) -- could you please be a bit more specific?

Seriously. Just open your local phone book’s yellow pages, go to the Cs and look up ‘churches’. Even in small communities there are pages and pages. Which one, exactly, do you want to be in charge? There are so many precisely because they are NOT the same. So, again, which one should be in charge? Baptist-which kind? Lutheran-which kind? Presbyterian-which kind? Methodist? Church of Christ? Nazarene? Assembly of God? Mormon? Seventh-Day Adventist? Quaker? Messianic? Episcopalian? Which kind of Catholic? Which orthodox creed?

Who would you trust to decide which one should be the standard? Then, who would be in charge of making sure it operates properly? Who would police that administration? Who would get to decide which scriptures would be the basis, and which translation would be allowed? How would you ensure that everyone got the same set of approved rules? For that matter, how would you guarantee that the system meets with your approval?

And, finally, how would you deal with the bloody fights that would inevitably ensue?

Wastewater injections to resume Friday in well that caused Greeley earthquake; fines possible

A Greeley company whose wastewater injection well was linked to a 3.4 magnitude earthquake two months ago will be able to resume injecting after plugging about 400 feet of the well to keep water from flowing a fault.

The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, announcing Thursday that NGL Water Services could resume limited operations, also is investigating the company for potentially violating its limits on volumes on the well.
(...snip...)
Once Greeley’s earthquake hit on May 31, researchers from the University of Colorado placed seismic monitors in the general area of several injection wells to better pinpoint the potential source. They narrowed it to an injection well east of the Greeley-Weld County Airport. On June 23, after a 2.6 magnitude quake in the same spot, the COGCC ordered the company to stop injections for 20 days for further study. Monitoring revealed continued seismic activity.

This is my home, and they're killing it. And us.
I hate it that when I get this angry I can't even cuss, all I can do is cry.
