Wow-Bama

I must admit to being greatly pleased by the current progress of President Obama's Administration.  He apparently is actually trying to fix things in Washington, for one thing he has opened up (and required to be opened up) most things under the Freedom of Information Act.  For a complete roundup see this post here.

"I'm Just a Hockey Mom..."

...with a $150,000 RNC-funded shopping spree.  Nothing relates to Joe Six-Pack like outfitting everyman's candidate like spending "$75,000 at Neiman Marcus and nearly $50,000 at Saks Fifth Avenue as well as substantial amounts at Barneys New York, Macy's and Bloomingdale's."  (read more here)  Now I'm no political theorist, but that says "STUPID" to me.  And since they were spending it out of funds that are watched by the Federal Election Commission, the RNC, it's not like we wouldn't find out.  They blew more than her salary in 2 months.  Not that any of her other stunts are any smarter.

That is all, be dismissed.

Conservative Nutjob Gets What's Coming to Him

Idea

I had a brilliant idea to counter-act the myriad of fundies that roam my family tree.  I am going to start a list of sins that Jesus specifically criticized people about.  That means you're limited to the Gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John--As much as I like the Gnostic Gospels, I'm limiting myself to stuff that fundies actually believe is scripture.  This is stuff like hypocrisy, greed, cruelty etc.  Preferably stuff that is found in quoted text.  Then I'm going to compile the list versus the practices of your average Christian so that we can see how much they live up to the name.  If you know of anyone who has done this already, I would be greatly interested to know.

Republicans Make Great Idiots

And if these morons are the average McCain-Palin voter, I really do fear for the safety and sanity of the United States.  This is the kind of vitriolic hatred you expect to see in the press releases of terrorist cells not Americans.

Why am I not Suprised

Your result for The Which Biblical Villain Are You Test...

Satan


You are Satan, the consummate villain, and the ascendant figure in the unholy trinity. Throughout history you have been called The Serpent, The Accuser, The Devil, Lucifer, The Prince of the Power of the Air and The Dragon, among other things. Your "compatriots" in the unholy trinity, the Antichrist and the False Prophet, are merely pawns in your futile struggle with God. Though, they probably don't know this. This is because you are a master of deception; indeed the Bible calls you "The Father of All Lies". You are also very ambitious, and you strive to be in positions of the utmost authority. Unfortunately, it was impossible for you to obtain the highest title in heaven and this is part of the reason why you decided to leave. Of course, you couldn't just leave by yourself, so you managed to use your deceptive abilities to get one third of the angels in heaven to join with you in revolt. God put down the rebellion and expelled you from heaven. To most people, it would seem foolish to start a war against God, but pride can sometimes cause people to do foolish things. In heaven, you were the most beautiful and powerful of all angels and you were well aware of this. Unfortunately, you let your pride consume you and your passions led you down the road to perdition. After you were expelled from heaven, you let another one of your attributes consume you--envy. You knew that you could never defeat God, but you could attempt to destroy humanity, his most beloved creation. Your goal is to bring as many people as possible to suffer in Hell with you. Fortunately for you, but unfortunately for the rest of us, you've been endowed with all of the attributes necessary (deceptiveness, confidence, ruthlessness, and ambition) to do a terribly good job at this.

The Following Rant Brought to You by McCain 2008

Well, having finally heard enough about the utter stupidity of Sarah Palin, and also having made an executive decision that Barack Obama is not the personal messenger boy of the Communist Party, tho he is a tad too liberal for my taste (actually they both are a tad too liberal for my taste, considering my more libertarian* anarchistic political views) I am now supporting the Obama campaign because I don't want the crazy whacko fundie nutjobs that make up the neo-conservative movement to elect our Holy Emperor of the Great United Theocracy George W. Bush Jr. and his Empress Sarah Palin.

Beyond the fact that her church is a member of the Third Wave movement and probably actively plotting to overthrow and subvert the government, if only by magical means, and beyond the fact that she was personally blessed by a Witch Hunter, she's also a complete utter dingleberry who cannot open her mouth without spouting lies.  Now anyone who credits her rise to power to Jesus is most certainly going to respect the Establishment Clause and most certainly respect the religious diversity that is the United States of America.  Most Assuredly Not.  Is the crazy white woman going to help McCain run the country further into the ground like their forbears have done?  Most Likely.  Personally, I rather like the idea of electing a woman, shows we might actually have some of that equality we purport to have in this country, but as Phaedra Bonewits points out in her blog, I don't like the Republicans throwing out the token woman candidate.

On a related note (since I pretty openly believe that the Republican Party is being run by the Conservative Christian Lunatic Fringe), I have been (perhaps fairly) accused of being a tad unkind (albeit indirectly) to all the Non-Nutty Christians (however few or many of those there may be) by using the blanket term Christian for all the religiously inspired idiocy I see everywhere these days. 

Since I like the mild bit of legally enforced tolerance my religion gets in this country, I have the following to say:   I can and do respect the right of people to believe and act however they see fit, so long as they respect my right to consider their religion a load of hogwash that has been distorted by self-righteous, power hungry twits who distort the teachings of the Nice Man from Nazareth who said such ghastly things like "Love thy neighbor" and "Blessed are the Poor in Spirit", but who listens to the man anyway these days. 

Anyway, I would like to issue a blanket apology to any sane, rational person who follows the Teachings of Christ who I may have inadvertently offended, as well as all Jews, Muslims, Buddhists (Buddha totally rocked anyway), Hindus, Wiccans, or any other religion I tend to jokingly mock.  Hey I mock my own religion, so do they think that they're going to be left out?

*Now I had to remove Libertarian from my political views due to the fact that their leader is a raving, fundie looney.

Wow, Been a while

Well, having ignored this for a long time.  I probably should post something to this journal.  So, a re-purpose statement in contrast to the first one, this is more my random rantings and less about ADF due to parental concerns.

Also, I am finally getting back into "Linux Mode" after a brief excursion through the lands of Gaming.  I wish Cedega and AMD/Ati could get a grip on their driver selves and not crash alot becuase of stupid shit.  SIgh.

More to come when I'm not tired.

That is all.

More Fundie Signs

Well in more crazy signs from the local Baptist church, we present to you the following:

“He Is Risen
Service of Darkness
March 23, 2008 12:00 AM”

(I’m fudging on the dates, but the rest is accurate).

Now, what in the name of the Gods is a “Service of Darkness”? Because visions of Satanists and Black Masses are writhing through my head. (Especially in concern to my previous post about that church’s Christ-centered Blowjobs.)

Oh well, we shall see what we shall see.
