"Its advocacy and manner of approach on behalf of the entire region is to be commended."
Echoing my as yet unanswered question about the identity of the culture that ROCK seeks to reclaim, might I ask: "On behalf of what?"
So far, in spite of periodic allegations to the contrary, ROCK has limited itself to stroking a prurient interest in public policy matters pertaining to sex and sex alone.
Fair enough, but what about all the other ways in which ROCK might prove some meaningful mettle?
For me, when ROCK's "soldiers" finally begin attending those apparently boring neighborhood meetings, the ones where community activists talk about things like nasty living standards in decrepit rental properties, and at long last ROCK decides to take part in the discussion of what we as a community intend to do about it, then I'll finally believe ROCK is really interested in improving the lives of children and families, and not just grandstanding about pornography, an issue that affects far fewer lives (and has less direct effect on property values) than living standards, public health and other related societal dysfunctions.
Until then, ROCK's interest in hawking license plates boasting "In God We Trust" tells us far more about where its "advocacy" is headed.
As an atheist, it seems to me that an all-knowing deity should be as interested in matters like rental property squalor as she is in pole dancing and the virtues of license plate advertising.
Maybe her words aren't being accurately interpreted.
