This post is from the JMBzine Blog Vault, which means it is a very old blog post that I wrote at a very different time of my life. My views on religion (I’m now a Humanistic Jew), politics (today I’m a democratic socialist), and many other subjects (LGBTQ+ inclusion, abortion rights, etc.) have drastically changed over the years, so please bear this in mind when reading this post.

Here’s a version of the peace flag flyer in PDF format for printing and distribution. (This is a very large file, over 1 MB.)

(2022): Unfortunately I hosted this file on my student webpage at SWT (today Texas State Univ.) and this didn’t get picked up by I think the pleace flag flyer was just a US flag with a peace sign on it, maybe in place of the stars?

Here’s the lyrics to the Cake song that is playing on college radio a lot, Short skirt, long jacket

A friend just showed me this verse from the Bible…

But he said to her, “You speak as any foolish woman would speak. Shall we receive the good at the hand of God, and not receive the bad?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips. – Job 2:10

Discounting the sexist remark that Job made (remember he lived a few thousand years ago and their culture was very different than ours is today), that scripture seems so fitting for these days.

(2022): I’m not sure what point I was trying to make about this in 2001, but today I question much of the theology expressed in the book of Job. — I also believe today that Job is a work of fiction.
