The Bigots are Responding

I’ll start locally. Rhode Island Bishop Thomas Tobin of course used language that was a euphemism for ‘intrinsically disordered.” It must really suck to be a Bishop when the church is losing members left and right but yet you still don’t understand that history has passed you by and there is no going back.

Then of course the National Organization for Marriage with their head puppet/pumpkin head Brian Brown is just saying they’ll fight on.

Then you’ve got Senator James Inhofe saying his gay friends agree with his opposition to marriage equality. What gay friends is he talking about? Ken Mehlman and Condoleza Rice?

I think it’s now turned the corner, the arguments are over and all we have to do is ridicule the bigots. And I do mean ridicule them.

If for example they trot out the Levitical statement, ask them to go a text or two before – and answer the question of where the other people came from. You know the others I speak of right? When Cain goes out of the land of Eden, east into the land of Nod, and there finds a wife and spawns humanity, or so they’d have us believe.

And if they talk about the abomination thing, explain that eating shellfish is also an abomination, and pork too.  And let’s not even talk about shaving, mixing of fabric, working on the Sabbath etc.

Then explain the concepts of  copy error, translation error and editorializing. Because that’s the Bible we have today, whether it’s the KJV, NIV, or the like. I like how family guy treats it, that the abilities of Jesus may have been a tad exaggerated.

But in the end, haters gonna hate. So all we’re left with ridicule – just call it their puny god.

From the mouths of Bigots: Pastor Robert Jeffress

So it appears Robert Jeffress in response to the judicial ruling in Texas over equal protection under the law said, and I quote:

As an American, I also realize that no nation can survive that condones what God has condemned. And God has condemned homosexuality, just like he does adultery or per-marital sex, as being wrong and, as a nation, we cannot be blessed by God if we’re rejecting God.

 

Let me break this one down a bit, because Jeffress obviously hasn’t a clue to how tings actually work. And the U.S. has survived just fine with divorce, single parent homes, men shaving their beards, wearing fabrics of two different cloths, people eating shellfish, pork, and all sort of delicious foods. Yet we’re still kicking. And of course the mind of people like Jeffress is childlike in a way. If he really wanted to know the real danger facing us – it’s the plutocracy that runs the U.S. right now.

You have to read the original article. It’s pretty funny by itself. i just had to point out that while Jeffress did in fact touch on the adultery, and (sic) per-marital sex. Yes, that’s IN THE QUOTE above. But I just HAD to mention the fabric, food and shaving. Because that’s in their oh so important Bible too.

 

So I was right: The Anti-Gay laws in Russia were spawned by U.S. Evangelicals

If there’s one sect or strain of Christianity I dislike most it’s Evangelicalism. It’s because Evangelicals try very hard to merge government and religion to the detriment of us all, most specifically the LGBT community. 

So it came as no surprise that i read this. It’s about the World Congress of Families which is most active in none other than Russia. But we can see direct offshoots of this in Uganda and Nigeria too. It’s all Evangelical horse shit being spread around the globe and here at home. 

But the article links U.S. Evangelical organizations like Focus on the Family, the National Organisation for Marriage, the Russian Orthodox church and whole bunch more. They even mention Brian Brown – the head of NOM who has traveled to Russia and given his dog and pony show. 

The article goes on to explain how in Russia they’re saying that marriage and birth rates are WAY down. Of course the bigots won’t step back and take a look at why that’s the case. Perhaps because of economic instability and the fact that Russia is essentially Plutocracy run wild. Has nothing to do with the LGBT community – instead this is just raw animus on display Evangelicals and the Russian Orthodox Church. For example did you know that the Patriarch of the Othodox church gets to vet all legislation that DUMA creates? Yup. 

That’s why the bigots love Russia – church and state are intertwined. I’m so happy the U.S. Constitution despite the efforts of the Evangelical groups here in the U.S. tying their damnedest, that the Constitution here prevents them from getting their bigoted ways. Not that the bigots haven’t tried what with Prop 8, and the various legislative and constitutional bans. And most recently we have religious idiots sponsoring and passing legislation to allow people with a so called “deeply held religious belief” to discriminate against the LGBT community. Case in point is Arizona – the House and Senate have both passed the bill to allow the bigots to claim foul at the sight of any of the LGBT community. I don’t know if Governor Brewer will sign the legislation but if she does I can assure you that the lawsuits will follow and the state of Arizona will look very foolish. 

Regards Arizona we could actually do something to demonstrate our ire. Just don’t buy any product or services that are made or produced in Arizona. We all need to do this, straight or gay. Let’s show our displeasure and starve Arizona of both business and state tax revenue. 

Bigots in Utah just can’t catch a break

Now the tenth circuit appellate court has denied a stay on appeal. I wonder when we’re going to hear the next temper tantrum from Brian Brown?

Of course the State aka the Bigots want this considered by the U.S. Supreme Court. Justice Sonya Sotomayor handles these things for the tenth district and has the option to decide the stay herself, or to refer it to en bank.

Now knowing about Justice Sotomayor – I strongly suspect she will decided the stay herself and probably deny the stay. She’s from New York, the actual city. And I’ve seen her speeches etc. and she doesn’t strike me as a conservative justice at all.

So the bigots – I  predict that not only will they be denied a stay at the highest court – but that they will lose at the appellate level. And if the Supreme Court decides to hear the case – they likely will lose there too.

I have no tolerance for the bigots

None whatsoever. Be in Jennifer Robach Morse who I called a “fucking bitch” to her face. Or Maggie Gallagher whom I called a “Snivelign Cunt”. I cannot tolerate the bigots.

Even on a local level – I love getting Chris Young red faced. It’s too much fun.

I look at it this way, you gotta call em’ as you see em’.

Neil deGrasse Tyson on Corruption

This is fantastic.

Now the talk show host makes a good point, just put em’ all on a spacecraft with no food, water etc.

But why expend the energy to fire them into a black hole. Granted the spaghettification would be spectacular.

You know at one time I just wanted to get them all in one place, say a stadium in butt fuck America. And then drop a 10 megaton nuke on it. Make them go from solid to gaseous in micro or nano seconds. But then it occurred to me, why not do what the Golgafrinchams did. First spread the rumor that a giant earworm is coming to eat the Earth. Then build stellar spacecraft and pack them all on it saying that they are the future of the human race on another planet. Program the ship to crash directly into the sun.

Note the themes in that paragraph – into the sun, certain doom, etc. They come directly from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Come to think of it, we could do pay-per-view of the event and wipe out the national debt in the process.

New ‘film’ Criminalizing Christianity

You have to watch this first. It’s eight minutes of the most retarded reasoning you’ve ever heard. And it has the notables like Rand Paul, Gordon Klingenschmidt, Janet Porter, Harry Jackson, Brian Camenker et al.

First of all let me say if their big deal is abortion why do they harp on homosexuality so much?

Let’s tackle the abortion thing and their heartbeat law they want to pass. If you put cardiac cells in a nutrient solution and bring them to a certain temperature guess what happens. The cells start beating.

Now onto the Biblical claims. First Abortion – the only referent I can find in a Bible is the Sin of Onan. Nicely parodied in this clip:

Yeah – and as to  Judaism, Christianity and even Islam here’s something to chew on:

It’s asserted in the Bible that after Cain slew Abel, Cain was marked and had to leave the Garden of Eden and go east to the land of Nod. There he found a wife. But the thing is, if his wife was there so were OTHER people.

And think about it, one breeding pair among dozens or possibly hundreds. Which means that we’re all descended from those OTHER people in Nod. And the entire concept of original sin doesn’t apply. It also means that the Judeo-Christian religious traditions are built on statistically flawed grounds or if you prefer the more common vernacular, they pulled it straight out of their own asses.

If you want to read for yourself I’ll quote a bit out of Genesis Chapter 4 here:

4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

So who was Cain’s wife – note that they never bother to give her a name!
