So, from Kevin McCullough, the new host of Today’s Issues program from the American Family Association, courtesy of Right Wing Watch:
While discussing the Boy Scouts of America’s decision to include gay members under the age of eighteen, McCullough claimed that gay people hate God: “One thing that is absolutely true is that people that live active and activist homosexual lifestyles absolutely, rigidly hate the God of Scripture. There is no doubt about that, they absolutely do. People that struggle with it and try to work it out, they’re in a different category. But the people that are activists about it, they despise the God of the Bible and there is nothing short of that that can be understood.”
Put away the fish sammiches, it’s Zombie Jesus Day! I’ll be spending mine at home with my family, engaging in a little debauchery like board games, dirt bikes, movies (Shaun of the Dead anyone?), and imbibing on copious amounts of fermented grapes and distilled grains. California origins for the former…Kentucky origins for the latter. Saving my highland single malts for a more important day. Continue reading
I just thought of a great punch line in need of a joke: “Altar boys in burqas” Someone help me out here…
It’s been a while since nothing has happened to those who killed Hena Akhter. Daily, nothing happens and is joined by other first-world problems like not having a spare spark plug for the lawnmower (oh, the humanity!), McDonalds wrappers left strewn about, and the X-Box “Ring of Death”. Meanwhile, the same nothing continues to plague the monolithic Islamic, fatwah-spewing, woman-despising mullahs, and, like the Roman Catholic church, nothing will continue to be the best way forward in addressing modern needs in modern times.
For those who don’t want to take the link from above, Hena Akhter was killed while being caned for being the victim of a rape, since she was guilty of allowing a man who is not her relative to see and use her genitals against her will. Instead of learning a lesson about how woefully out-of-touch the religion and its teachings are over things like a woman’s role in rape, the leaders of this backwards, bigoted, and destructive religion continue to sentence girls to caning for things they are not capable of doing, or things that were forced upon them. What. The. Fuck. For fuck’s sake, (in mohammed’s name), why must a girl in the Maldives be sentenced to 100 lashes for ‘fornication’ – the fornication brought on by years of sexual abuse at the hands of her step-father with the knowing approval of this girl’s mother? What did she do? Forget to take out the trash one night? Was her burqa improperly showing too much eyelid?
Shit like this has to stop. If there was any truth to the xtian religion, Zombie Jesus would put that religion out of its and everyone else’s misery. Since there’s not, I join Christopher Hitchen’s desire to turn the middle east into glass. By now, it is far too obvious that Islam cannot change.
Want to go back to the good ol’ days of the 1950’s? Guess what? You couldn’t get assault rifles (or their contemporary equivalents) then at all. (See http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Firearms_Act)
Is that why there were so many school shootings then??
Not a big problem in the 50’s? Oh, it must have been the armed guards or principals weilding six shooters that warded off the bad guys.
Teachers weren’t armed, you say? Did little Johnny pack heat next to his pb&j?
Gun nuts: why must you all be such dicks?
Regarding our most recent (it pains me to have to use that adjective) mass murder on US soil – specifically the most recent (pain, again) at a school, Bryan Fischer, Director of Issues Analysis for the American Family Association (AFA), said with empathy and a heartwarming tone:
Where was God when all this went down? Here’s the bottom line, God is not going to go where he is not wanted.
Now we have spent since 1962…telling God to get lost, telling God we do not want you in our schools, we don’t want to pray to you in our schools, we do not want to pray to your before football games, we don’t want to pray to you at graduations, we don’t want anybody talking about you in a graduation speech…And I think God would say to us, ‘Hey, I’ll be glad to protect your children, but you’ve got to invite me back into your world first. I’m not going to go where I’m not wanted. I am a gentleman.
If I were religious, I’d be saying that the shooter will burn in hell!
But since I’m intelligent and thoughtful, I will instead wonder what drove that man to do such a violent thing, and work towards restricting access to weapons that are designed to kill people.
My way actually does something.
