They Can Take Their Rood And Shove it

I keep hearing people, Senator Obama most recently, talk about a need to address issues of faith. Perhaps his faith accepts and endorses public proclamations, but for most of us raised as Christians it is a private matter. We were taught that public protestations of faith are hypocrisy, because that is what Christ taught in Matthew chapter 6. Are we expected to ignore the clear meaning of that chapter because the Christianists have chosen the path of the Pharisees? Are the Christianists exempt from the Bible as well as the Constitution?

When I see Roy Moore’s “Rock” in the Alabama Supreme Court, or this latest “construction” Karen has posted, I view them as poor representations of the “Golden Calf” mentioned in Exodus. When they stick G-d on the money or in the “Pledge of Allegiance” I consider it sacrilegious, just as Teddy Roosevelt did.

Please, Stand By

According to TBogg everyone who is considered to be part of the “liberal” segment of blogtopia™ [skippy the bush kangaroo] is required to stop everything and condemn a woman you probably don’t know for writing comments you haven’t seen on a blog you don’t visit about a guy who is only vaguely familiar from snarky comments about his culinary choices.

Failure to do this is an implicit admission that you approve of every mass murder ever committed and regularly bite the heads off of kittens.

Sounds to me like some people in the Blight lack confidence if they feel threatened by such things. Fortunately, the US government has an all-expense paid confidence building course that is available to all citizens between the ages of 18 and 40. Fresh air, healthy exercise, lots to eat, free medical care, all available for a signature. All the details are available on this site. I’ve heard that they now provide free video games.

Manassas-cre

On Friday it was reported that Gunmen, bombers target Iraqi holy sites and today Shi’ite gunmen rounded up and murdered approximately 40 Iraqi Sunnis, including women and children.

Maybe if one side or the other adopted this flag the US government would admit that there is a civil war in progress, along with the insurgency against the foreign occupation. All our efforts at helping the Iraqis “stand up” accomplishes is supplying more arms and training for the factions that are fighting.
