Today in the Anals* of Religious History…

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

This Muhammed loves you:

The other one, the towelhead, says, “GO TO HELL, INFIDEL!”
Well, at least his submissive, peace-loving (after all, Islam is a religion of peace, right?) followers say that.
This kind of silliness is a round-about hint at the answer, just in case you’re ever on a quiz show or playing Trivial Pursuit with friends, […]

America won’t elect a non-Christian, says Romney

Saturday, November 10th, 2007

Well, it will have if it elects Romney, no?
Why does everyone afford the Mormons the mantle of Christian “respectability” (cough cough)? MORMONS ARE NOT CHRISTIANS. (”Christians” aren’t really Christians, either, but the stick for beating that one is long broken.) What’s so hard to understand about this? All you have to do is look—just a […]

My hand’s over my mouth

Friday, November 9th, 2007

I just heard on CNNj about the latest Obama “hand over heart?” BULLSHIT.
My GAWD, is this the kind of STUPID SHIT the coming election is going to be about? Hillary’s boobs and Barack’s loyalty? I think I’ll just unplug the TV for the next year and fire up iTunes instead.
“A people gets….”

Water + Board = Torture

Friday, November 2nd, 2007

Especially in the context of cinematic “entertainment” featuring just postpubescent males running around half-nekkid and saying things like “Surf’s up, dudes!”
I’m sorry, you can consider me weak if you want, but all it would take is the mere threat of being made to watch something like that and I’d blab every secret I’ve ever heard […]

From 3 to 8

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007

Pills in the morning.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to blather on about this sort of thing much more.
But it’s a bit of a pain having to gollum down eight largish pills when heretofore I’ve just had to manage one big one and two small ones.
I know firsthand that Japanese dentistry is less advanced than American. […]

Palestinians less than pleased with Rice

Sunday, August 5th, 2007

According to news sources, the Palestinian government is less than pleased with last week’s visit of U.S. Secretary of State Condescenza (or something like that…oh, hell, “Condi”) Rice. While decorum was maintained and everything was smiles and pleasantries during the photo ops, officials were a bit more frank with their opinions afterwards.

Palestinian minister Dr Salaam […]

Hill’s got tits!

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

No shit.
Like, duh? I mean, hello…she is a woman, and I’ve never heard the phrase “double mastectomy” used in reference to her, and since the things usually tend to travel in pairs (with a nod there to Woody Allen), it only stands to reason that Hillary Clinton has breasts and therefore the potential for…oh my […]

Did Jesus’ shit stink?

Saturday, July 21st, 2007

What about Muhammed’s? Or Buddha’s?
Just something that occurred to me yesterday morning while listening to CNN report on the religious right attempts to make the U.S. a “Christian” nation.
This morning they were on about the Obama/Romney “sex ed in kindergarten” blow. Seems Romney is being a bit dishonest in the whole thing…but what can you […]

A Message to U.S. Hindus:

Friday, July 13th, 2007

Just a reminder from the “Good Book” of the “nice” people among whom you have chosen to dwell:
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs,
neither cast ye your pearls before swine,
lest they trample them under their feet,
and turn again and rend you.
I just saw on CNNj a quick clip about the heckling of the […]

Before Republican or Democrat, American

Tuesday, May 1st, 2007

I listened to a Larry King interview with George Tenet on CNN this morning. At one point, Tenet said something to the effect that he had never thought of himself as a Republican or Democrat, that before everything else he thought of himself as an American.
It’s a pity more politicians don’t get that, no?

From his cold, dead hands?

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

OK…now how did that go again…guns don’t kill people?
I wonder if Ole Chuck and the NRA are already booking venues in Blacksburg for their next convention.
From the L.A. Times website:
A convocation, expected to be attended by President Bush, was scheduled for 2 p.m. Bush, who has received condolence calls from foreign leaders, today ordered U.S. […]

It’s official: I AM NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT!

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

Just in case anyone was wondering.
Seems to be the in-thing these days to declare one’s candidacy. I do so hate fads.
So again, I repeat: I am not running.
So don’t ask me, don’t write in my name. I’m not interested!

Out of the mouths of babes…

Monday, January 8th, 2007

I’m working on proofreading senior theses again today and just came across this, by a student writing about Marilyn Manson:
The strongest fascist influence in America today is Christianity. Certainly there are many denominations of Christianity; for example, classified broadly, it can be divided into Catholicism and Protestantism, with the latter classifiable into smaller divisions. These […]

Support for Heterosexual Marriage

Monday, December 11th, 2006

Heard this just about an hour ago on a TV show (never mind what I was watching):
“Gays are all for straight marriage, you know.
After all, if it wasn’t for straight people getting married, there’d be no gay people!”
I guess I’d never really thought about it that way.

Swearing on the Qur’an

Friday, December 1st, 2006

Just caught a piece on CNN’s “Paula Zahn Now” about Representative-elect Keith Ellison, a Catholic-turned-Muslim who wants to use the Qur’an instead of the Bible in his (unofficial, photo-op) swearing-in ceremony. As expected, this is evidently causing a bit of a stir among the Xian monoculturalist wingnuts.
Paula’s guests were Dennis Prager, a columnist who opposes […]
