Does Trump’s CIA Director Want To Start A Holy War?

This threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the way and the light and the only answer. These folks believe that it is religiously driven for them to wipe Christians from the face of the earth…. They abhor Christians, and will continue to press against us until we make sure that we pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world. – Mike Pompeo, Trump’s pick for CIA Director

The above quote was part of a speech Representative Mike Pompeo, (R-Kansas) gave to a church group in Wichita, Kansas, in 2014.

While Pompeo did not come out and directly advocate declaring war on Islam, there were several embedded “dog whistles,” (Conveniently denoted in boldface.) to get the message across. Such as: “It is religiously driven for them to wipe Christians from the face of the earth,” “make sure that we pray and stand and fight” and “Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world.

That last one is especially troubling. Allow me to translate down the audio spectrum: “Christianity should rule the world or we’re in deep doo-doo.”

Don’t think that the Wichita speech was a “one off.” Last year, he addressed the Summit Church in his home district. This particular church  specializes in Satanism and paranormal activity. In that speech, he called the fight against radical Islam “the kind of struggle this country has not faced since its great wars.

So, who the hell is Mike Pompeo? For starters, he’s a former army captain that thinks he knows more about military matters than the Pentagon, State Department and Obama. He’s currently been nominated to head the CIA by Donald Trump.

You might remember him as part of the Benghazi witch hunt, looking for Hillary Clinton’s “smoking gun.” (Or at least, her broomstick.) Mike never found the gun, but he still managed to shoot himself in the foot.

As you might guess, being elected in Kansas, Mike flies with his right wing only. He pushes a number of fantasies cherished by troglodytes.

As bad as these things may be, they don’t have a lot to do with his proposed position at the CIA. But, these do:

“Why would you spy on friends? Because it’s a place where you find people who are trying to do enormous harm to America.”

  • He also thinks the N.S.A. needs to spy on American citizens. (Can you say “Big Brother is Watching?”)
  • He’s a torture fanboy. Despite the fact that torture hardly ever results in actionable intelligence. Not to mention that it’s against national and international laws.
  • He’s “skeptical” about global climate change. (See “fossil fuels” comment above.) This despite the fact that the Department of Defense asserts that climate change will affect the Pentagon’s ability to “defend the nation” and “poses immediate risks to U.S. national security.”
  • As you may have noticed, he’s an Islamophobe. Not a good position to hold when trying to deal with the ongoing series of Middle East Crises. (Not to mention, it destroys the myth of American impartiality when it comes to negotiations.)
  • Pompeo belongs to a group, (Member’s Bible Study) who’s illustrious members, past and present, include Jeff Sessions, Michele Bachmann, Steve King, Louie Gohmert and Mike Pence. The group is lead by Ralph Drollinger, an anti-LGBT clergyman who has called Catholicism the “world’s largest false religion.”

Referring to Pence, Sessions, and Pompeo, Dollinger stated,

Suddenly these men who have been discipled by the Church are in prominent positions of authority to change the course of America in ways that are biblical.

(Yeah, the “Revelations” part of the bible!)

Stay tuned!

Are Witches Advising High-Ranking Government Officials?

the-witches-are-hereIt’s a horrible time for “KKKhristians” (as opposed to “Christians”). The witches are here and it’s not even Halloween yet!

Not only that, but Muslims are being given “preferential treatment(Horror of horrors, three of them are even judges!) and “the cross is being degraded in America, the Christians are being—the very thing Jesus said would happen in the Last Days, that we would be, because we serve God, we would be attacked, we would be hated for the name of Christ’s sake. It seems like our nation is kinder to other faiths and Christianity is being put down further and further and further

Ok, let me explain a couple of things before we proceed with this nonsense:

  • Witches don’t exist! At least not the “flying by broomstick,” or “Double, double, toil and trouble” type. Yes, there are Wiccans, but by-and-large, they tend to be pacific in their beliefs and there’s no real magic about them.
  • I use the term “KKKhristians” because these troglodytes’ rantings are the antithesis of Christ’s teachings. He preached love, they preach hate.
  • Islam is just like any other “religion.” There’s good in it and there’s bad in it. If you’re going to judge all Muslims by ISIS, (which destroy’s Islamic holy sites with impunity and is deeply violent) then you have to judge Christianity by the KKK (which hates all races except Caucasian with impunity and has a deep history of violence).

In the fevered mind of some filberts, Islam is taking over the country, lead by that secret Muslim (and suspected Anti-Christ) Barack Hussein Obama. (FYI, his middle name proves he’s Muslim, just like mine “LeRoy” proves I’m a king.)

What’s the purpose of the Islamic conquest you might ask? Why, to impose Sharia Law, of course. (At least that’s what the religious trogs claim.) To be honest, I’m a bit confused why KKKhristians are so opposed to that, since Sharia Law is almost exactly the same as Evangelical Law, which they support.

Ok, so what do Muslims taking over and Witches in high councils have to do with one another?

Both “items” were the subject of discussion yesterday’s (9/22/16) on Jim Bakker’s program. You remember Jimmy. He’s the “family values” televangelist who cheated on his wife and diddled his secretary. Then he got several years of rock hockey lessons at the Iron Bar Inn for defrauding his “church.” Well, Jim’s out and back to the old con.

Jimmy was a bit unhappy about Obama having the nerve to nominate another Muslim attorney to be a federal judge. His guest was Robert Maginnis, a member of the Family Research Council. After Jimmy made the above “the cross is being degraded” statement, Bobby agreed, adding “the persecution against Christians is rampant in the Pentagon and that the Obama administration is aggressive against Christians.

He then went on to claim that he had met with witches that advised government big wigs in Washington D.C.

I have personally met people that refer to themselves as witches, people that say they advise the senior leadership of the country. We invite within the federal government people to advise us and often some of those advisers, I think, have evil motivations, things that you and I would not approve of.

If you have the stomach or the stomach medicine for it, here’s the video:

Can States Establish Their Own ‘Official Religion’? (VIDEOS)

It has often been stated that this country was originally settled by people escaping religious bigotry and in some cases that’s true. What’s not so often stated is that once here and established, they practiced their own brand of religious bigotry.

One of the best cases in point are the Puritans.

Puritans were firm believers in the “my way or the highway” practice of religion. More often, the “highway” led to the stocks or worse. Non-conformity, religious or political, was NOT tolerated.

In 1636, Roger Williams was found guilty of preaching “newe & dangerous opinions” and was exiled. Banished from Massachusetts, he went a bit south and founded Providence Plantation, a much more tolerant colony. You probably know the area by its present name: Rhode Island. In 1660, they “legally” murdered four Quakers and kicked the rest of them out. The four were condemned to death and executed for their religious beliefs by the Massachusetts Bay Colony Legislature.

There are numerous other examples, but let us jump ahead to what I refer to as the “Hateteenth Century.”

  • (1700) New York and Massachusetts solved their Catholic conundrum by kicking out any Catholics in their jurisdictions.
  • (1701) North Carolina passed the Vestry Act, making Anglicanism its official religion.
  • (1708) Connecticut passed their 1st statute that allowed “full liberty of worship” to Anglicans and Baptists.
  • (1771) The State of Virginia jailed 50 Baptists worshipers for preaching the Gospel contrary to the Anglican Book of Common Prayer.
  • (1774) Massachusetts Baptists were put in jail for not paying taxes to support the Congregational Church.
  • (1777) American Philosophical Society member, Thomas Jefferson, completed his first draft of the “Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom“, which states: “No man shall be forced to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever.”
  • (1785) Another APS member, James Madison, penned “Remonstrances Against Religious Assessments” advocating separation of Church and State.
  • (1786) The legislature adopted the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, which disestablished the Anglican Church as the official church and prohibited harassment based on religious differences. (Good luck with that one.)
  • (1789) The Bill of Rights was ratified. The First Amendment reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
  • (1796) Andrew Jackson opposed the inclusion of the word “God” in Tennessee’s constitution.
  • (1796) The Treaty of Tripoli was conducted. Article 11 states: “As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion…”

As you can tell from the bullet points, the tide shifted towards tolerance in the last quarter of the century. However, it obviously didn’t go away. And, as you can see from the chart below, state religions lasted well into the next century.

Time Between Original Colonial Charter and End of State-Supported ReligioncoloniestimelineSource (with additional information): ProCon.org)

In the 19th Century, we had the rise of the anti-Catholic American Republican Party Most people refer to them as the “Know Nothing Movement”. While not it’s original intent, the tag pretty much sums them up.

In 1915, the second incarnation of the KKK was founded. While the original KKK focused their hatred on n!&&ers and fellow travelers, the “new, improved” version added Jews and Catholics to their hate list. There was rampant anti-Catholicism aimed at Al Smith in his 1928 run for the White House and even charges that JFK would “take his orders from the Pope” in the 1960 presidential campaign.

Things haven’t changed much, though the targeting has shifted. All you have to do is listen to a campaign speech by THE DONALD (aka “hairball”) or any one of a number of right-wing Khristian bible thumpers and pundits when the subject turns to Islam.

In every single case sited, the perpetrators of this religious bigotry were primarily White, Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASPs) and they are still at it. However, now they’ve added a new twist. This time around, they are the self-proclaimed “victims” in the self-imagined “War on Religion.”

One of their “defensive weapons” in this so-called “War on Religion” has been the distortion of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). The act was originally passed in 1993 to protect the freedom of religious minorities such as Sikhs and native American religious rituals.

Then, “the law of unintended consequences” reared its ugly mug. in 2014, SCOTUS decided in “BURWELL v. HOBBY LOBBY STORES, INCthat since companies are people too, that they had religious rights as well. In that particular case the corporation’s religion didn’t care for contraceptives, so they didn’t have to pay for insurance coverage of the baby blockers.

From that point on “religious freedom” expanded to justify bigotry against the LGBT community. (Kim Davis, anyone?) Laws passed by Alabama, North Carolina and several other “red” states are the latest examples of that.

The ruling has even opened the door to denial of access or even referrals to abortion and contraception. What started out as a needed protective measure has morphed into legalized bigotry.

And, over the last couple of years, there’s been a new twist, or rather an old one, revisited.

In 2013, North Carolina legislators introduced a bill declaring that the state has the right to declare an official religion. The bill argued that states are “sovereign” and the Establishment Clause of the 1st Amendment cannot prevent states “from making laws respecting the establishment of religion.

The following year, a Mississippi group, Magnolia State Heritage Campaign, circulated an initiative declaring Christianity the state’s official religion. The text of the initiative stated

The State of Mississippi hereby acknowledges the fact of her identity as a principally Christian and quintessentially Southern state, in terms of the majority of her population, character, culture, history, and heritage, from 1817 to the present; accordingly, the Holy Bible is acknowledged as a foremost source of her founding principles, inspiration, and virtues; and, accordingly, prayer is acknowledged as a respected, meaningful, and valuable custom of her citizens. The acknowledgments hereby secured shall not be construed to transgress either the national or the state Constitution’s Bill of Rights.

It failed to get the required 110,000 signatures that time around. However, the way things are going, it may return.

For instance, in that same year, (2014) Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas statedthat in his view the First Amendment religion clauses don’t apply to the states in the first place.

Most legal experts would argue that the return of state religions is very unlikely. However, most legal experts did not foresee SCOTUS’s ruling that corporations are the equivalent of people.

There is currently one vacant position on the Supreme Court with the likelihood of at least a couple more in the next few years. One more reason to vote for the Democratic nominee in November. The last thing we need are two or three more Clarence Thomases on the bench. And if a Republican wins the White House, that’s probably what we would get!

 

Christian Terrorist Threatens to Hang Seven Mayors

Maverick Dean Bryan is a Christian. (Or, is that KKKhristian?) He’s also a convicted felon, the founder (and only known member) of the so-called “First Christian Militia of the USA” and a terrorist as well as a wannabe seditionist. In addition, he’s upset, VERY UPSET!

In fact, he’s so upset that he wrote letters to the mayors of Ashdown, De Queen, Hope, Lewisville, Murfreesboro, Nashville and Prescott, Arkansas threatening to hang them from “mighty oaks” if they don’t do what he tells them to do.

For starters, he’s pissed that schools are teaching common core and not Jesus Christ. (Or at least, his version of J.C.) He wants common core dropped and replaced with the bible. (He neglected to note which version is his preferred choice.)

Also, no more counting votes of any homosexual, Muslim, socialist, communist, atheist, or who worships a God besides Jesus Christ. Not only that, but he wants them kicked out of Arkansas. Oh, and he wants the mayors to hand over their counties to him.

Somehow, I get the feeling that Maverick doesn’t have a clue how things work on this level. Last I heard, mayors don’t run schools, don’t run election boards and don’t run counties. Although, if fairness, maybe they do on Maverick’s planet.

But, Maverick has greater ambitions than just setting Arkansas counties on the road to righteousness. He allegedly wants to kill every living American president, past and present, especially Jimmy Carter.

Not only that, but under the nom de plume of Lt. Gary Owen, he used a local shopper (Thrifty Nickle) to solicit $23,000,000 to overthrow the U.S. government. (Just a loan, mind you. He expected to have no problem repaying it from the spoils of war.)

Local law enforcement is well acquainted with Maverick. He was convicted of interstate motor vehicle theft in 1987 and has been arrested twice since then for possession of firearms. He is currently on probation for being a felon and wearing a .44 caliber pistol in a western style holster. When agents arrested him on March 18th, they found a shotgun in his home. (He seems to think that being in a “militia” trumps the law forbidding felons from firearm possession.)

On the 28th of March, U.S. Magistrate Judge Caroline Craven released him until his trial, however the local District Attorney requested a review of that decision by the U.S. District Court. On May 2nd, Judge Susan Hickey sent him back to jail, stating,

Defendant has an extensive criminal history involving the possession of firearms. In addition to his three previous convictions involving firearms, Defendant has admitted that he was impermissibly in possession of a firearm on the day of his arrest. Thus, Defendant has repeatedly demonstrated his unwillingness to abide by the laws concerning the possession of firearms by a convicted felon. This pattern of disobedience poses a threat to the safety of the community and gives the court little hope that Defendant would abide by any conditions set by this court.

Maverick faces a jury trial later this month. If convicted, he faces fines of up to $250,000 with five years in a federal prison, for each of the seven letters.

‘God’ And The Republican Primary Candidates

creation-of-man-1159966_960_720Ever notice that a lot of Republican candidates for president like to claim that “God” told them to run?

It never seems to be Democrats that claim a holy endorsement. That’s probably because, as every good Regressive teabag sucker knows, Dems are atheistic socialist Nazis or Beel-Zebub boosters or members of the “Gay Mafia” or something like that. They are therefore totally unworthy of any heavenly guidance.

However, the first question that comes to my mind, is “which god?” It’s probably not the one below, although he is part elephant. That’s Ganesh, the Hindu god of wisdom and learning. And, since we’re talking about Republicans, that pretty much lets him out. Ganesh

It isn’t the god of the New Testament. He was apolitical. As J.C. put it,

Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s. Matthew 22:21 (KJV)

After listening to the various “born again” candidates, I’ve come to the conclusion that the Republican god is probably the Old Testament god, YHWH, formally known as El, the supreme god of the Mesopotamian Semite pantheon in the pre-Sargonic period.

He personified fire and brimstone! A cranky, vindictive, narcissistic, blood-thirsty bully with a seven-mile wide jealousy streak, who didn’t play well with his fellow gods.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me. – Exodus 20:3-5 (KJV)

Remind you of any Regressive candidates?

What the bible doesn’t point out, is that he also has a weird sense of humor, at least when it comes to politics. Lemme ‘splain.

Last presidential cycle, I noticed that several presidential wannabes were “Big Daddy” endorsed.

Michele Bachmann

No CommentTo start with, He told Mother Michele that she should run.”If I felt that’s what the Lord was calling me to do, I would do it. When I have sensed that the Lord is calling me to do something, I’ve said yes to it. But I will not seek a higher office if God is not calling me to do it. That’s really my standard. If I am called to serve in that realm I would serve, but if I am not called, I wouldn’t do it.

I guess she got the call. ( I wonder if it was a text message?)

Herman Cain

I bid $2Herman “heard the word”. (Probably after using the wrong mushrooms on his pizza.) Cain told one crowd. “God said, ‘Not yet. I’ve got something else for you to do.’ And it might be to become the president of the United States of America.(Was that the “God” of Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan, I wonder?)

Rick Perry

The Rickster, (known to Bubbas, far & wide as “Cuzin Ricky.) felt the mighty hand of God. (Hmmm. What part of him was “God” touching?)

Now, where the hell did I leave my keys?I have basically been called to serve my country. “That’s what this election is about. It is not about me. It is about this country.” He added: “Your country is calling you. At a matter of fact, your children are counting on you to answer the call. And the Lord said to the Prophet Isaiah, he said, ‘Who shall I send? Who will go for us? And Isaiah held his hand up and said, ‘Here I am. Send me.’ Your country is calling you today. Your country is calling you to do your duty.

Rick Santorum

Then there’s the “Guy from God” himself: Saint Orum!

Righteous-Rick-150x150The saint, speaking to pastors and spiritual muckity-mucks, said: “I’m trying to walk down a path that God is leading me. I figured if this is what he is calling me to do, then I just have to go out and work hard”…

(Btw, did you notice that every one of “God’s chosen” lost?)

And now we’re in a brand new cycle, but several candidates are singing the same old hymn.

Ben Carson

Dr Crazy T.N. Dr Crazy may be one of the best examples of an idiot savant (emphasis on “idiot”) on this year’s Bozo bus. He may have been a brilliant brain surgeon, but other than that, he’s “Filbert City!” However, that hasn’t seemed to matter to the big guy. As he related to Bullshit Mtn last August, “I believe God will make it clear to me if that’s something I’m supposed to do…if God grabbed me by the collar and asked me to run.” When CBN’s David Brody asked him “How is that conversation going with God about this potential presidential run?” He replied “I feel his fingers.”

(So, he’s saying Big Daddy “fingered” him. Hmmm)

Mike Huckabee

M.H.Mike, the former minister, former governor and on-going huckster (It’s not for nothing, I call him “Hucksterbee.”) appeared on James Robison’s “Life Today” program and asked the TV audience to pray that Big D would bless him in his quest. “For me, this is not just a political or financial decision, it is a spiritual decision. You know, the only thing worse than not being elected president would be to be elected president without God’s blessing. I can’t think of a worse place in the world to be than in the Oval Office without God’s hand upon you. I’d rather not get near the place. But if that’s a purpose, so be it. And that’s my prayer.”

(Looks like he was “blessed,” although his campaign didn’t seem to be.)

John Kasich

J.K.Last April, when John was a guest on “Meet the Press,” Chuck Todd asked him if he was going to run. He replied, “…the most important thing is, what does the Lord want me to do with my life? You know, he puts us on Earth, all of us on Earth, to achieve certain purposes, and I’m trying to determine if this is what the Lord wants, and I’m not going to figure that out laying in bed hoping lightning strikes, so I’m out there one foot in front of another.

(Well, being struck by lightning would explain a few things.)

Rick Perry

Now-where-the-hell-did-I-leave-my-keys-150x150Cuzin Ricky came back for a second shot at the Oval Office. Unfortunately he was out of ammunition, but the invisible man in the sky didn’t care. As the Rickster explained on “The Janet Mefferd Show,“…It has been an incredible outpouring and I can tell you that has given me the calmness in my soul that, you know, God sends messages through a lot of ways and through a lot of messengers.”

(I guess the second time around, his messages came “second hand.”)

Rick Santorum

Righteous-Rick-150x150Also returning for another tilt at the windmill, albeit for a very short ride, was Saint Orum. (Old Righteous Rick, himself.) As Mrs Rick told CBN News, “it really boils down to God’s will. What is it that God wants? … We have prayed a lot about this decision, and we believe with all our hearts that this is what God wants.”

(Or, maybe “God” just wanted another good guffaw.)

Scott Walker

And last, as well as pretty much least, we have Scotty who already had the blessing of a “higher power” (the Koch Bros).

S.W.Like the others, Scotty claimed that his candidacy was “God’s plan!” In his first “give me money” letter, he stated “My relationship with God drives every major decision in my life. Each day I pray and then take time to read from the Bible and from a devotional named Jesus Calling. As you can imagine, the months leading up to my announcement that I would run for President of the United States were filled with a lot of prayer and soul searching. Here’s why: I needed to be certain that running was God’s calling — not just man’s calling. I am certain: This is God’s plan for me and I am humbled to be a candidate for President of the United States.”

(Evidently, “God” didn’t plan very well.)

So there you have it: Two presidential cycles, multiple candidates endorsed by the “high guy” and every one a loser! It just might be that “God” is a practical joker. The question is, who’s the butt of the joke?13076602_10153911520891195_6351405000417854868_n

 

 

Kirk Cameron: Submissive Wives = Successful Marriages

Photo credit: Gage Skidmore

Photo credit: Gage Skidmore

Ex-teen hunk turned troglodyte, Kirk Cameron has the perfect formula for a successful marriage (if you’re a bronze age, or earlier, desert dweller). He bases it on the holey wisdom of “THE BOOK!”

You know, the one with the oral bush and talking snake, re-animated zombies, unfrozen water walking, an unscrewed virgin having a baby, fiery flying serpents and a six mile deep world-wide flood that no civilization noticed at the time.

Yeah, that one!

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.Colossians 3:18

For fun and profit….I mean, to spread “the word,” Kirk has embarked on a “Love Worth Fighting For” national marriage tour to explain to the suck..faithful, how to make your marriage work after you drag her, by her hair, into the cave. In order to hype the tour, Kirk graciously granted an interview to the “Christian Post.”
According to the actor, once known as Mike Seaver,(With apologies to Prince.)
A lot of people don’t know that marriage comes with instructions. And, we find them right there in God’s word…Wives are to honor and respect and follow their husband’s lead, not to tell their husband how he ought to be a better husband. When each person gets their part right, regardless of how their spouse is treating them, there is hope for real change in their marriage.
So, wenches, when your hubby blows the rent on a crap game, crawls home 3 1/2 sheets to the wind and threatens to “give you what you’re asking for” when you’re too tired to dance the horizontal mambo with him, just submit and remember, you’re saving the sanctity of your successful marriage.
Oh, and never get into an argument with hubby!
Thinking that you are going to win an argument, you end up losing. It’s a no-win situation. In order for you to win, your husband or wife has to lose. When they lose, you have not built up your marriage. You have really cut them down.
And, if your marriage collapses, it’s your fault.
What most people do is they try to blame their spouse and say, ‘Hey, I would be a great husband if it weren’t for my wife.’ ‘We would have a great marriage if it wasn’t for my husband. This talks to the importance of getting your own part right. There is only one person on the whole planet who you can change and it’s not your spouse.
So, if your love boat is steaming straight toward the matrimonial shoals because the 1st mate is being uppity, there’s still hope. Catch Cameron’s tour and he’ll show you how to be guided by the lighthouse of love.
We talk about faith in God. We talk about the heart of the problem in marriage. We talk about what it means to love your wife in a practical way and what it means to honor your husband. It is possible to fireproof your marriage. Fireproof doesn’t mean that the fire will never come, it means when the fire comes and the heat is high, you will be able to withstand it.
After the talk, but sure to check out the concession area. Salesmen are standing by with special deals on southern Florida wetlands and some famous bridges.

Idaho Republicans Want The Bible Taught In School

Creation???Khristian filberts along with their Regressive allies (when they are not one and the same) keep trying to inject their bible mythology and their Bronze Age laws into the mainstream. Never mind the fact that the United States was founded as a secular nation with a constitutional division between church and state. They don’t believe that anyway. In their bubble, fantasies trump facts!

Which brings us to Oregon’s embarrassing next door neighbor, Idaho, or at least its legislature. In its infantile wisdom the legislature has decided that what schools really need is some good old fashion bible sttudy.

Of course, besides that silly old 1st Amendment’s separation of church and state, there’s Idaho’s constitution, which is even more specific. In Article 9, Section 6 it states,

No books, papers, tracts or documents of a political, sectarian or denominational character shall be used or introduced in any schools established under the provisions of this article, nor shall any teacher or any district receive any of the public school moneys in which the schools have not been taught in accordance with the provisions of this article.

However, one spudhead has decided that he can overrule both. According to Rep. Sage Dixon,

The little Supreme Court in my head says this is OK.

This latest brain fart comes to us courtesy of an Idaho Republican Party conclave last June.

idaho-gop-logoTHEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the Idaho County Central Committee encourages the Idaho legislature to draft and support a bill stating that the Bible is expressly permitted to be used in Idaho public schools for reference purposes to further the study of literature, comparative religion, English and foreign languages, U.S. and world history, comparative government, law, philosophy, ethics, astronomy, biology, geology, world geography, archaeology, music, sociology, and other topics of study where an understanding of the Bible may be useful or relevant;

(Geology? Biology? Archaeology? Can you say “Creationism?”)

A month or so back, Senate Bill 1342 was introduced to enable the Idaho County Central Committee’s dream to become reality. One of the drafter’s attorney defended the bill stating,

Nobody should be concerned that what we’ve asked for is to allow religious training in school.

(Of course, that’s exactly what it does!)

After some minor tweaking, the bill was passed 34 – 3 on March 7th. It then proceeded to the house.

There was an attempt in the house to remove the word “bible” and just use “religous texts” instead. That went down 52 – 15.

Representative Dixon and some of his fellow troglodytes claimed that the bill only refers to the bible is because only the bible is “under attack.” Besides, the bible is nonsectarian and nondenominational.

There are many religions that refer back to the Bible in their tenets.

Also, Rep. Vito Barbieri claimed the bible is different because it’s “fundamental to the American way of life.”

Monday, the house passed the bill 54 – 15. It now goes to the Governor for his signature. No word so far on whether he intends to sign it.

The state Attorney General has stated that it “violates the Idaho Constitution and likely would be overturned in court, as it’s “specifically prohibited” by Article IX, Section 6.

 Stay tuned!

Ted Nugent: Gun Control Is A Jewish Conspiracy

Teddy ButtY’all might remember Teddy Nugent from his non-smash hit “Cat Scratch Fever(It made it up the charts all the way to #30 back in ’77) or maybe “Wang Dang, Sweet Poontang” was a fave in your pre-adolescent years.

However, you’re most likely to remember him for his tirades on how every “Real ‘Murican” should be armed to the teeth when he/she takes that perilous journey to the local Denny’s. (Who knows how many terrorists are hiding behind those menus?) Or maybe it’s his vow to be dead or in prison if the Big O was re-elected. Since neither came to pass, (darn it) methinks he could have been stretching the truth just a mite bit. (aka “Lied through his ass.”)

Well, here’s the latest idiocy from the ammosexual so cowardly, he shit his pants for a week to avoid the draft.

This week, ol’ “Shitty Britches” alerted the world to a brand new conspiracy that nobody else had caught. It seems, the Big O isn’t the only one after the gun-butts’ penile surrogates. It turns out that he’s just a tool of a vast Jewish conspiracy. To help spread the alarm, Teddy Boob posted the following rogue’s gallery:12687849_10153470914987297_6549701424036416709_n

Know these punks. They hate freedom, they hate good over evil, they would deny us the basic human right to self defense & to KEEP & BEAR ARMS while many of them have tax paid hired ARMED security! Know them well. Tell every1 you know how evil they are. Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!

I gotta tell ya, it was a revolution of a revelation to me. First of all, until it was pointed out to me, I didn’t know that some of the people in this pernicious pack were Jewish. Secondly, I didn’t give a damn, but that’s another story.

I have to admit that the idea of Jews being anti-gun struck me as strange. Especially since Israel is one of the most heavily armed countries in the world. But then, I live in this world. I’m not sure which one Teddy occupies.

Evidently, this “plot exposure” didn’t go down too well, even with some of Teddy’s gun-butt buddies. For instance:

I call total f#@king bullshit here, I am jewish,conservative gun owner, this is just f#@king hate. I’ve always supported you but f#@k you Ted, lets run for generalizations, Many more christian lib gun haters, you sank low here, what’s next swaztikas?

That one got 701 “likes” so far.

Then there’s this one:

This is nothing short of conspiratorial anti-Semitism. Regardless of one’s views on gun control, this kind of scapegoating of an entire religious group is completely unacceptable and completely divorced from reality. It should go without saying that anti-Semitism has no place in the gun control debate. You should be ashamed for promoting anti-Semitic content, and we hope that good people on both sides of the gun control debate will reject his tactics and his message. We hope you will have the good sense to remove this share immediately so that it does not spread virally across the internet.

That one stands at 966 “likes” and counting.

Or this one:

Ted: As a religious Jew who testified with you in the Michigan Senate for relaxing gun laws and strengthening the 2nd Amendment, I’m absolutely disgusted but not at all surprised that you are showing what I always suspected: that you are a Jew-hater and a piece of crap. Ted Nugent Endorses Jews, then Announces He Hates Jews. Also, I’m sickened you invoke the slogan of Jewish Holocaust survivors, “Never Again” in mockery. Go to hell, asshole!

In fairness to ol’ “Shitty Britches” there were some supporters for this fantasy, like the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke.

Ted Nugent was called anti-Semitic for saying that Jews lead the effort to take away our guns! If he is anti-Semitic so are all the Jewish organizations that boast of the fact that they lead the effort, including the ADL which called him an anti-Semite. If Jews have a problem with the truth then the truth is .. AntiSemitic!

The nation’s “Founding Daddies” knew that there was a downside to 1st Amendment rights. And, despite the likes of idiots like Teddy and propaganda outlets like Bullshit Mtn, I’m glad we have it. They are just a price we have to pay for that freedom. As Evelyn Beatrice Hall once stated,

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.

2015: The Year In Dumb Wing-Nut Prophecies And Predictions

J-Hagee-628x356Well, despite the predictions of various dire disasters for 2015, we’ve somehow managed to survive. Most of the catastrophes were supposed to happen because Big Daddy was pissed about marriage equality or the Iran deal or something. And, of course, some of them were going to be brought on by our Islamic, foreign-born presidential pretender.

The first prediction of note came in January, courtesy of “Judge” Jeanine Pirro, one of the few Bullshit Mtn bimbos with an I.Q. bigger than her breast size. (She useta was a district attorney.) There are times, however, when she seems to have undergone I.Q. reduction surgery.

On the 11th of the month, the “Judge” predicted that the Big O was going to inflict Sharia Law on the unsuspecting citizens of ‘Murica.

And make no mistake – as sure as I’m talking to you – there will be efforts to limit our First Amendment – our free speech – to comply with Sharia blasphemy laws which call for death to those who slander the prophet Mohammad.4243bd7c914c026192e00c7e032ff30f

I’ve never been too sure what was so upsetting about Sharia Law to this country’s religious wing-nuts. It’s almost exactly the same as Evangelical Law and the majority of the Religious Wrong is all for that. Both are based on Old Testament religious laws. After all, Jews, Christians & Muslims are all “Children of the Book.”

In April, a Texas Megachurch Pastor, John Hagee stated that since there were four blood moons plus a solar eclipse this year, that would herald the apocalypse or the rapture or the 2nd coming.

God sends plant Earth a signal that something big is about to happen! He’s controlling the Sun and the moon right now to send our generation a signal, but the question is, are we getting it?

No, the man in the moon isn’t hemorrhaging the red stuff. A blood moon is called that because in a total eclipse, the moon turns red as it passes through earth’s shadow. Btw, in scientific terms four blood moons in a year is called a “lunar tetrad”. The fact that there are four total eclipses this year is unusual but not unique. You can go 300 years without one, or as in the next 300 years, have 17 of them. (Eight in this century.)

Later in the month, he amended that to say that it meant the world would face an economic crisis in the fall.

Strangest thing, but that didn’t happen either. Maybe Big Daddy was too busy on Kolob to get around to screwing with the economic system, or maybe he forgot to leave himself a note in his daytimer.

As you may recall, back in the spring, SCOTUS (aka “The Not-So Supreme Court”) was trying to decide if the LGBT Community had the same rights, marriage-wise, as the “Straights.” This evoked all sorts of warnings of impending gloom and doom.

However, my favorite nuttycism emanated from End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles. Claiming the Holy Ghost was speaking through him, he said there was fire in the future. The Sacred Spook wasn’t sure if it was rioting, war or a fireball from space, but it was something.

America will be brought to its knees, there will be pain and suffering at a level we’ve never seen in this country. The word that I hear in my spirit is ‘fire.’ I do not know if it refers to riots or looting or war on American soil or a fireball from space. I simply know that a sweeping, consuming fire will come across the United States of America and this country will be charred and burned.

This one has me a bit puzzled. Darwin knows, there are uncounted trillions of fireballs in space. (We call them “stars.”) But B.D. couldn’t spare even one to make Rick an honest man? Even after his sent the spook to spread the warning? Of course it could just be a case of Rick’s tinfoil receptor being mis-tuned and he was picking up an alien version of the Star Wars saga. In any case, we’re still here, so the matrix is still up and running.

Which brings us to (drum roll, please)@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

JADE HELM 15

This event spawned so many predictions, prophesies and conspiracy theories, you’d need a tome to list them all. The following are just a brief sampling:

Jade Helm 15 came and went and turned out to be exactly what the military said it was going to be: A military war game to enhance military capability in modern warfare. Texas is still Texas. “Real ‘Muricans” are still roaming free. Walmart is still screwing its workers. And, not a Chinese warrior or space alien in sight. (1,500 mph mag-lev trains would have been nice though.)

Must have been a hell of a sale on tinfoil, somewhere!

Oh, and before I forget. Although Jade Helm may have been a bust, tinfoil-toupee wise, that didn’t deter Rick (Fireball From The Sky) Wiles from predicting that Jade Helm 16 (If that’s what the next war game will be called.) will…. well, I’ll let him tell you.

I believe that they would level the state of Texas, I believe they would use an EMP against Texas…Write that down for the record, this is a warning from the Holy Spirit.

Kinda makes me wonder if the spirits he communicates with are gaseous or liquid?

By this time, fall rolled around and True Believers braced themselves for the prophesied calamities. Religious Wrong fixture Jonathan Cahn, predicted that September 13th would be America’s “DAY OF JUDGEMENT!” Stock market crash and all!

Jim Bakker, back from his extended vacation at the Iron Bar Resort, agreed about September 13’s crash. Well, either that or a typhoon, a bombing, or an earthquake. He knew this because Big Daddy laid it on the line for him. (No mere Sacred Spook, but the HIM, himself.)

Once again, nuttin’ happened! Cahn then claimed that any disaster that happened between September 2015 and September 2016 would validate his predictions.

Rick Wiles added to the pile by stating that the good(?) Pastor Hagee had been right about predicting the economic collapse. Ricky predicted that between September 13 and October 9, the stock market would drop 30%. Pastor Hagee, not to be upstaged, elevated that to 50%.

Cahn pooped up again, stating that Big D. was soooo pissed off over SCOTUS’s gay rights ruling and the White House’s LGBT Pride Month celebration with rainbow lights, that his was going to sic Hurricane Joaquin on Washington D.C.

Ricky chimed in by adding the sinful city of New York to the target list. (I guess “Spookie” had his ear again.) Hurricane Joaquin didn’t hit either one!

These were just a few of the year’s ravings about impending doom. However, I’m not writing a book and by this point, I think you’ve got the point.

And, just think. There’s a brand new year for them to prophecy about.

Stay tuned! (And, make sure you’re stocked up on popcorn.)

Thousands Resign From Mormon Church After Anti-Gay Fail

Another Mormon TempleAbout a week ago (November 6th, to be exact.) I wrote a post on the latest bit of Mormon bigotry toward the LGBT community. It seems, in their infinitesimal wisdom, church leaders decided that children of gay parents would not be allowed to join the church unless they renounced their parents.

If you missed reading that post, (Shame on you!) here’s they had to say in their proclamation:

A natural or adopted child of a parent living in a same-gender relationship, whether the couple is married or cohabiting, may not receive a name and a blessing. Nor can the child be baptized and confirmed, ordained, or recommended for missionary service.

Then they listed the exception requirements.

  • The child accepts and is committed to live the teachings and doctrine of the Church, and specifically disavows the practice of same-gender cohabitation and marriage. 
  • The child is of legal age and does not live with a parent who has lived or currently lives in a same-gender cohabitation relationship or marriage.

Also, If you have the audacity to marry someone with the same genital plumbing, you are guilty of apostasy.

As might be expected, this caused quite a stir in the LGBT community, as well as the “straight” population as well. (At least, the progressive portion of the “straight” population. The Religious Wrong anal pits were all for the idea.) What wasn’t expected is that it also caused a stir in the Mormon community.

The backlash started immediately.

A FaceBook page was set up to publicize an resignation event to be held yesterday (11/14/15). It accumulated over 2300 “interested” guests.12191608_10101742749872457_2192142737496543696_n

During the following week, one Salt Lake City attorney said he had 1500 resignations already in the works. And, that was just one attorney. As to how many others were starting the process is hard to tell. The church doesn’t like to talk about losing members, only gaining them. Btw, as of 12/31/14, the church claimed 15,372,337 members, but by most accounts, active members only comprise about 38% of that number. (About 5,840,000) A lot of us (yes, me included) never get around to telling the church to go take a hike. In any case, it must be a large enough number to cause the church leaders to walk the nonsense back a bit.

Friday, the church offered a “clarification.”

Our concern with respect to children is their current and future well-being and the harmony of their home environment. The provisions of Handbook 1, Section 16.13, that restrict priesthood ordinances for minors, apply only to those children whose primary residence is with a couple living in a same-gender marriage or similar relationship.

When a child living with such a same-gender couple has already been baptized and is actively participating in the Church, provisions of Section 16.13 do not require that his or her membership activities or priesthood privileges be curtailed or that further ordinances be withheld.

All children may receive priesthood blessings of healing and spiritual guidance.

So, their “clarification” was that if minors in same-sex households were already in, they wouldn’t kick them out. How big(ot) of them! Btw, the “Handbook” that is mentioned, is for the use of church leaders. It’s not something that regular members would normally read.

They also released a “spin” video on the subject.

Evidently, that wasn’t good enough for those fed up with the church’s anti-gay stance.

Yesterday, a crowd gathered in Salt Lake City’s City Creek Park to sign letters of resignation to be forwarded to the church. Event organizer, Lauren McNamara, stated,

The energy has been really positive and supportive We may have even reached 2,000…We want this event to make a statement to the church today that its treatment of those we love has led us to this moment.

Steve Holbrook of Post-Mormons and Friends, told the Salt Lake Tribune,

Resigning is a really big step for people, because the church has filled so much of their life. This is not a statement necessarily against the church. We just disagree with some of the directions the church has been going in.

The church owned “Deseret News” tried to downplay the event by claiming that a very small percentage of members were actually resigning. (That’s probably true. Most, like me, just leave without saying goodbye.) And besides, most, of the people resigning were younger Mormons, inactive members or activists.  They quoted “Apostle” Quentin Cook,

Some have asserted that more members are leaving the church today and that there is more doubt and unbelief than in the past. This is simply not true.

Stay tuned!
