This week, failed presidential candidate and serial philanderer Newt Gingrich opined that “Atheist Philosophy” is the greatest threat to Christianity. It’s so great a threat that not even the chance of being blown up by a terrorist or shot to death by a mass shooter compare.
Ted Cruz is taking aim at same sex marriage, as if married gay people really are the cause of mass shootings.
I’d like to point out that, technically, as marriage is defined in the dictionary, Adam and Eve were never married (if one is to leave out words for which “marriage” is a synonym). They didn’t have a legal or formally recognized union in a personal relationship as we define formal or legal.
But, hold up: the legal definition of marriage is not the same as the biblical definition of marriage. What is the biblical definition of marriage?
You know how to tell if a religion is total bullshit? There are plenty of ways, chief among them a cursory reading of the religion’s holy book. But the most amusing way to arrive at this conclusion is to just listen to the representatives of said religion speak.
Enter Bryan Fischer: radio host, Christian, and dumbfuck extraordinaire. I’m sure you’ve all heard the story of a pastor claiming that Melania Trump requested an exorcism of the White House. If you haven’t, check it out. Cue America’s faction of idiocy, the Christian Right. Continue reading Conservatives and the Art of BS
I read this article on Facebook about Nick Offerman’s response to the question of men crying, and it nearly brought me to tears. Why? Because it’s nice when a famous man who is often seen as a “man’s man” comes out and just throws a monkey wrench in machismo.
It got me to thinking about the things that move me to tears. There was the last scene in the original Independence Day. The thought of an advanced species coming all the way to earth in spaceships that were larger than most cities losing to humans who can barely avoid an accidental nuclear war stirred something in me that I couldn’t deny, and I had to shed those tears.
We are shrapnel.
We are constructed, the controlled ingredients
of our haphazard oblivion,
the wires of burning marionettes,
the discipline of terror. We are embedded
into the sky,
the dazzling apathy
Ladies and gentlemen, what a week. First, the FBI and Democrats try to head off #releasethememo by putting out statements about how damaging it would be to classified sources or some shit. Then the memo is released, and I’m forced to recall all those times I’ve left a woman unsatisfied, and I feel this newfound kinship with women because that release was certainly the performance of a minute-man. Next, all the Republicans decide to say stupid shit, like there’s a barely functioning idiot working in the highest echelons of government passing on vapid talking points to the Repubs via Sean Hannity. Actually, that’s literally what’s happening. We’re not going to talk about any of that, though, because I have an even better WTF moment in store.
You know when you’re listening to somebody speak, and they say something so stupid you can’t help but to punch them in the throat?
Hey, its me, Josh.
I haven’t heard from you in a while. In fact, it has been so long, I get the impression you’re avoiding me.
I thought we were close. I thought we had an understanding. That was the whole reason I showed up: so I could understand. But you took my reaching out to you and slapped away my hand, and I just don’t understand why.
Why don’t you love me?
Have you noticed that the US seems to be transforming into a nation of not-very-bright people (we can call them dumbasses, right)?
There is news that should send shivers down your spine like Bill Cosby asking you out for a drink – the establishment of a religious wing of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Health and Human Services, for example – and there is news that should cause you to say aloud in your team meeting, “Dafuq?” Continue reading Ken Ham: “Science Bad, Magic Good” (and other Absurdities)
You scream into the void
this how it goes:
war, war, war, you
