Stay classy, Florida

There's problems brewing in the hitch-o-sphere.

The Florida legislature has voted for a new Jesus license plate. When asked if he would veto the bill ordering the new plates, Florida Governor Charlie Crist commented,
"I would not veto those... No, I would not," Crist said. Asked if he has a problem with Jesus on a license plate, Crist responded "I don't. No." On the question of Church and state, Crist argued that "If they don't want one they don't have to buy one" and defended the plates on the basis that "I think it... What's it say? 'In God We Trust' on every single piece of monetary, coins and paper we have? I think it's fine."

Because I Like My Science from Supermodels

kathy irelandKathy Ireland: She's not just a supermodel. According to FOX News, she's a "supermodel-turned-entrepreneur-turned-author" and she's speaking out against abortion!

While hawking her latest book, Real Solutions for Busy Mom: Your Guide to Success and Sanity, Ireland spoke out,
My entire life I was pro-choice - who was I to tell another woman what she could or couldn't do with her body? But when I was 18, I became a Christian and I dove into the medical books, I dove into science.
As you can see, after diving into science our Christian swimsuit model still has some of it stuck to her butt.

Ix-nay on the Wine-say Lu-fay!

All the Abrahamic religions are equally ignorant.
JERUSALEM (AP) - The outbreak of swine flu should be renamed 'Mexican' influenza in deference to Muslim and Jewish sensitivities over pork, said an Israeli health official Monday.

Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman said the reference to pigs is offensive to both religions and 'we should call this Mexican flu and not swine flu,' he told a news conference at a hospital in central Israel.
Pigs are nicht nicht in Judaism and Islam, so they cannot be eaten, but I had no idea that piggy banks, piggy back, and pig Latin were all also forbidden.
Scientists are unsure where the new swine flu virus originally emerged, though it was identifed first in the United States. They say there is nothing about the virus that makes it 'Mexican' and worry such a label would be stigmatizing.

Impotent Dismay as the Godless Globalist Elites Destroy our Heritage

impotent patriotsDon Larsen, a Springville delegate, offered the resolution, titled Resolution opposing the Hate America anti-Christian Open Borders cabal, and "invisible government" Who's fault is it? Why it's SATAN! And the Ford Foundation. Larsen spoke,
Satan's ultimate goal is to destroy the family, and these people are playing a leading part in it.
It's really quite a rant.
Whereas, traditionals and patriots throughout our country watch in nearly impotent dismay as the godless globalist elites destroy our heritage leaving us without memory of our past and with little hope for our children’s future. Our globlist elites subvert every tradition and ethic that elevates men above beasts. In the United States of America an arrogant godless white elite champions globalization.

Christians believe Australia exists in the future

A prankster at called the Word of Faith Christian Center to pray about the announcement that President Barack Obama IS a Muslim and was performing the Salaat.

The conversation went a little something like this:
The Mark: You're a day ahead of us.. .do you guys get news before us sometimes?

The Prankster: Uh, yeah...

The Mark: So we'll be hearing about this later? Oh what a tremendous revelation that we were deceived!
The Prankster wrote, "Since it had only just happened in Australia (which is 'in the future'), he prayed a preventative prayer to stop it happening in the United States. "

So sad.

Don't know much about history...

here come the lions

Over at Donald Wildmon's Mississippi-based American Family Association they're debating the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act. One of the brethren responded.
And regarding the open season on Christians, it's coming when this bill passes. Will you care about protecting the Christian "class" then????
Christians are protected under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

"If You Don’t Matter To God, We Will Shoot You in the Face"

From Cynical-C - his title above, in quotes. The PSA was produced by Answers in Genesis. I know they were trying to say that the kid is godless and so no one matters to him, but the message that comes across is that the Christians are going after the godless.

The conservative Christians have had a lot of trouble with their metaphors lately - consider teabagging, 2M4M, and now this. It's not new. There used to be ministries called "Sword of the Lord," "Sowers of Seed," and "Probe." It's the return of the repressed.

Donald Wildmon, "Ve have vays of making you talk."

lawrence king

April 17, 2009 is the National Day of Silence, which brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. Most of the school children involved plan to remain quiet during the day, or even just between classes or during breaks - not exactly a disruptive protest.

Donald Wildmon, of the American Family Association of Tupelo, Mississippi, sees it differently. In his Action Alert he writes, your local school and ascertain whether they officially or passively allow students to observe "Day of Silence."
In other words, will your child's school allow students to not talk throughout the day? Wildmon continues,
Schools do not have to tolerate students remaining silent in class.
Say what? How are you going to force students to talk in class?

The issue of anti-LGBT bullying came home to me this week. Last Tuesday my 13-year-old son, who is gay and out, received a verbal death threat from another student in his science class. The student's parents were called in twice and the student was suspended. The school did not, however, contact us until Friday morning.

This is one of those things that, when you hear it, is like getting slapped. As the school official was talking to me I was numb, I couldn't believe what I was hearing. But over the course of the day the enormity of the event began to sink in.

A hate email was sent to my son last night.

What the FUCK is going on? What kind of parents teach their children to threaten another child with death? Donald Wildmon's Christian parents? And MY child is involved in a what Wildmon calls a
...sinful, unnatural and destructive behavior[?]
What's more sinful, unnatural and destructive than a little Christian boy being taught to murder another boy?

It's more and more difficult for me to write about religion - about how wacky and weird these people are. They are not. They are dangerous and deluded and un-American. And the "good" Christians - those who profess God but also support gays and women - they create an atmosphere where the dangerous behavior of the Bible banging Christians can find purchase. Without the "good" Christians the rest would be left to twist in the wind - the danger of their thoughts and actions stripped bare for all to see and condemn.

More and more I am convinced that the only way to honor any god is to deny him/her. No God would countenance this hateful behavior and would prefer not to be worshipped at all to having his/her nature perverted as it is throughout the world today.

Barack Obama: "Serve Satan"

A human experiment turns Bogota, Columbia into a nice place to live.
During his tenure as mayor of Bogota, Colombia, Enrique Penalosa was both revered and scorned for his urban planning and transportation policies. His public works projects, which largely favored the pedestrian experience, were unlike anything previously built in Bogotá. Penalosa describes the environmental and social importance of minimizing automobile culture.
Very inspiring.
