      Speaking truth to power is always risky, and downright dangerous if it’s in a courtroom with a politically minded judge.

      Why is it that young girls of 12-16, designated minors in our society, can be held accountable for serious crimes like murdering a classmate, robbery, or whatever, being tried and punished as adults, yet are held to be completely innocent in any sexual encounter with anyone over 18? Automatic victims in any sexual encounter, even if they were the ones who initiated it?

      WHY, oh why…do we WAR on human nature and natural law itself? Why don’t we say to the evangelicals, (who have decided purposely, as Bill Maher puts it, to suspend critical thinking) If God frowns on premarital or under age sex, why did he make human beings capable of such activity by the time they aged to double digit numbers?
