It was a bad dream asphyxiated, watch me bleed

I’m baaaack!

After a month screwing around with wordpress and my host, you can imagine how much pissed off bottled up opinionated bile I have to spew.  It didn’t help that I made several calls to my host and they were the problem all along.  I was on an old package and they never moved me over to the new one.  The guy on the third call said “You need to move over to the business package”.   How much more does that cost?  Nothing, it’s the same as what you’re paying, it’s got more memory.  Voilå!

Here we go!

Well, Chick-Fil-A appreciations day was a huge success.  So proclaims the billions of ignorant meme’s flying around.  A banner day for hate and bigotry, which is clearly alive and well in Amerikkka.  Awesome.

I’m a little sick of the Rovian liars.  OK, a lot sick of them.

Jackson Pearce, who is somewhere between a little slice of awesomeness and one of the smartest people in this country offered this.

She gets it.  And watch home girl quote the Bible like a pro! It’s not about chicken.  It’s about a basic human right that Dan Cathy, the President, COO and über douchebag at Chick-fil-a, has been funneling MILLIONS of dollars to deny.  The Winshape Foundation funds radical, hateful, bigoted ventures with the spoils from Cathy’s chicken restaurants.  From boycottchickfila.com

I understand that Chick-Fil-A is a “christian” company and, just like you or I, can donate to anybody they damn well please.
My understanding is that they choose to donate to various extremist anti-gay groups.
When you give them your money they turn around and give that money to anti-gay groups.
You must decide which soul you want to feed.

We’ll return to the definition of a Christian in a minute.  Right now, we’re following the money.

How bad could it be you say?  How about $2 million in 2009.  Two million dollars to these assholes.

  • Marriage & Family Foundation: $1,188,380
  • Fellowship Of Christian Athletes: $480,000
  • National Christian Foundation: $247,500
  • New Mexico Christian Foundation: $54,000
  • Exodus International: $1,000
  • Family Research Council: $1,000
  • Georgia Family Council: $2,500

The Marriage & Family Foundation has this to say.

 

The Family Foundation believes in marriage as a lifelong union between one man and one woman, an institution of God and a foundation for civil society. An abundance of social science shows us that men, women, and children benefit economically, physically, and emotionally from a stable, two-parent marriage and family. Marriage promotes social order and provides a vehicle for long-term economic development and security within society.

And God bless them for putting that nice negro couple front and center on their website.  No subliminal message there.

Exodus International, the pray away the gay guys, is the organization that talked up their “solution” in support Uganda’s legislation that potentially puts homosexuals to death.  It ain’t about chicken.  It’s about genocide.  Now Exodus International is trying to back off saying “reparative therapy” doesn’t work.  Can’t wait until Michelle Bachmann hears about that.  Michelle Bachmann never met a proven fact she couldn’t question in the name of batshit crazy.  Of course the fact that she is elected to our congress and thought she was Presidential timber is another bucket of shit.

You know, Jesus was in the Bible too.   He was that liberal Jew boy that said inconvenient stuff like:

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a]

38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

We see John 3:16 just about everywhere.  Naturally no one reads on to John 3:17.

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

How does that fit into Chick-fil-a’s manifesto?  Yeah, not at all.  Who’s your bible scholar now bitches?

For all of you old testament bible thumpers…John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

So when a bunch of hateful zealots start quoting Leviticus and the old testament, remind them that it also says things like Leviticus 19:28

28 Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.

The old testament is full of stuff that doesn’t apply to our life at all.  Do you think Dan Cathy and his ilk don’t eat popcorn shrimp?  Seriously, they live in the South.  Liviticus 11:9-12

“‘Of all the creatures living in the water of the seas and the streams you may eat any that have fins and scales. 10 But all creatures in the seas or streams that do not have fins and scales—whether among all the swarming things or among all the other living creatures in the water—you are to regard as unclean. 11 And since you are to regard them as unclean, you must not eat their meat; you must regard their carcasses as unclean. 12 Anything living in the water that does not have fins and scales is to be regarded as unclean by you.

Once again here we are.  We got here with George Bush invoking his Bibical bullshit when he illegally invaded Iraq.

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.

No law respecting an establishment of religion.

No law respecting an establishment of religion.

No.  Law.

No.

That means you can’t use Christianity to run this country any more than you can use Islam or Santeria.  Can’t do it.  So stop it.  All of it.  It’s not about chicken.  It’s about a huge corporation forcing their religious beliefs on us because they have the money to influence society.  Go get your Chick-fil-a sandwich.  Order a side of hate with it.  And as The Brother said yesterday, you can use the moist towelette to wipe the blood off your hands.

  1. I have been battling this out on Facebook, of all places, and I’ve never been so surprised by the venomous responses of my “nice” Christian friends. I have never felt so alone in my life. Now I’m a good little Catholic girl, but I just can’t imagine denying two people in love the right to marriage. I just want to stomp my feet and pitch a fit.
