I found a site that looks pretty interesting: The Texas Freedom Network. They also have a blog called “TFN Insider“. Just going by the name, they sound like one of these conservative wingnut groups that think you are only “free” if you are just like them. I mean, a group in Texas that says it cares about religious freedom. Sounds fishy.
But it looks like they really do care about religious freedom for everyone. According to their site, “The organization has been instrumental in defeating initiatives backed by the religious right in Texas”. Sounds good to me.
Some of the friends listed on their blog include the Baptist Joint Committee on Religious Liberty, the Center for Progressive Christianity and Sojourners. But if you read the whole list, it gets better: others include the Freedom From Religion Foundation and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. So there really ARE sane people in Texas.
One of the stories mentioned on the TFN Insider blog was the buzz that Rick Perry (aka Governor Goodhair). I was going to comment on that, but I decided that I may leave it for later. It seems like the talk of him running has suddenly died down.
