By now, everyone has probably seen this week’s highly offensive tweet that originated in the cortex of this supposed paragon of conservative morality and decency. If not, it goes as follows:
“Last Thursday was national ‘coming out’ day. This Monday is national ‘disown your son’ day.”
Was she joking? Who knows. Maybe a little, but probably not.
Can she say things like this? Of course she can.
Should she say things like this? Only if she wants to win the “cuntiest cunt of the cunting universe” award. But she was already in the running for that post anyhow.
For her to be so cavalier in her attitudes towards a very real scenario that plays out in the living rooms and at the kitchen tables of households all over this planet is quite shocking, even to someone as cynical as I am.
Sad thing is, comments like these from someone in her position of influence over thousands of equally close-minded bigoted cunt-heads will only serve two purposes: to further galvanize said bigoted cunt-heads and to further ostracize the very people for whom one would hope their Christian compassion would instead hope to embrace lovingly.
Then again, who the fuck said morality comes from the bible? Oh yeah, that’s right – the asshole Christians themselves who for centuries have also used that same ill-authored document to justify and sanction slavery, genocide, rape, torture, incest, murder and other similar feel-good human activities.
Ann, do us all a favor and keep your stupid cunt-head mouth shut and get back to what you do best — which is, well, unfortunately, being a stupid cunt. Damn. Well, how about this – have you considered a career in adult entertainment? I hear that there is a quite a market for it, especially among the sexually repressed religious folk with whom you seem to have a lot in common. Just sayin’.

To say nothing of the Islamic backlash in response to one of the worst videos I’ve probably ever seen, we have yet another example of religion at its worst and most lethal – this time, in the state of Oregon. Russell and Brandi Bellew have been sentenced to five years probation for, in essence, killing Brandi’s 16-year-old son with their subscription to a ridiculous theology (redundant!).
So, with their son Austin writhing in pain for days and days from a burst appendix — which they claim (and probably still do) that only prayer and the intercession of some zombie-baby-Jesus-who-is-his-own-son-and-father can cure — they looked on with, no doubt, sadness and despair. Truly, what parent, unless they are completely socio- or psychopathic, could do otherwise? When Austin finally dies — to no one’s surprise but his idiot parents — his murderers are given a slap on the wrist by a court that apparently seems unwilling to properly punish these parents, lest the free exercise of religion be infringed upon in some way.
What in the fuck is wrong with this picture?
This is, once again, religion getting a free pass. If anyone else had done what the Bellews did and at the same time did not cite a divine authority, they would’ve been locked up faster than you can say “cognitive dissonance”.
But you know, I gotta admit — there is a train of thought that gives me some pause here. Austin was old enough to drive, which means he probably could’ve driven himself to a hospital. I wonder — did he have his license, or a car or access to one? If his parents are this religious he was, no doubt, homeschooled. So, I wonder if he had any friends that he could’ve asked to help him. Perhaps Austin isn’t a victim at all. Perhaps he drank the Kool Aid, too, and was as much to blame in his own death as were his parents who spoon-fed him the idiocy that led him to his tragic end. And I’m guessing that the “I’ll believe anything” gene runs in the family – his father, Brian Sprout, died of sepsis in 2007 after – yep – he refused medical intervention for an infection.
Well, natural selection works in mysterious ways, I guess.

Well, faithful readers, needless to say, I’ve been a bit distracted lately by other things. But don’t you worry – there is no shortage of vitriol in this latest installment. I’ll need to hit a few topics, so pardon the wandering.
1. First of all, it is of course the Christmas season, probably my least favorite time of the year. Why, do you ask? Because of how arbitrary and soul-sucking it truly is. Think about it – you, like millions of others, are probably stressing about what to buy for whom, where to buy it, how much it will cost, how you can’t afford it, while standing in line at lifeless box stores thinking about it all, and why? Because once upon a time, some religious nutcases decided to celebrate some kid’s birthday around the same time that a bunch of pagans were being burned at the stake for celebrating the winter solstice? Give me a fucking break. Christmas is complete and utter bullshit. Do what I did and drop out altogether – and enjoy the time off with the people you love the most without feeling obligated. Life is way too short for that kind of shit.
2. Who gives a shit about Tiger fucking Woods? I don’t. So he cheated on his wife. Big fucking deal. A lot of guys do. Gals, too. That’s because monogamy is a wholly unrealistic expectation that humans place on each other. So, let’s all admit that we’re human and we like to fuck each other, sometimes without the presence of love and romance. And because of his actions, Tiger’s sponsors are pulling out (so to speak, heh). Well isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black. You don’t think the CEOs of some of these hotshot companies don’t have a line of mistresses pulling down their stockings outside their office doors? Puhleeze.
3. Obama gets the Nobel PEACE Prize and then says “Hey, let’s send a shitload more troops to Afghanistan. I think it will work.” Yeah, that makes fucking sense. Whatever happened to “you cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war”? Oh wait, that was Einstein who said that. A fucking genius. I’ve been regretting my vote for Obama for some time now, but hey – at least he’s not McCain. Ain’t democracy grand?
4. Some 8 year old kid in Massachusetts got sent home from school this week for drawing a picture of Jesus on the cross with Xs on the eyes. The class was asked to draw something pertaining to the holidays, and this is what he came up with. Wrong holiday, kid – that’s the bloodthirst-quenching holiday of Easter you depicted. You missed it by a few months. Ah well. He was inspired by a recent family visit to some wacko Christian retreat in his neck of the woods. The school want to have him psychologically evaluated because of the “violent” nature of his drawing. Well, duh! I think anyone who fixates on some dead dude nailed to a cross ought to have their head examined. And people are just starting to the figure this out now? That perhaps we shouldn’t be exposing our children to this kind of religious mind-fuckery? Christopher Hitchens calls it child abuse for a reason, folks.
Well, that’s it for now. Maybe I’ll be back again soon. Stay tuned.

There has been a fierce debate in my state of Maine lately, about – what else? – gay marriage. Our Guvna recently signed into law the equality in marriage that our gay neighbors deserve, and then the bible-thumpers got enough sheep to sign their little petitions to present the following referendum question on next month’s ballot:
Do you want to reject the new law that lets same-sex couples marry and allows individuals and religious groups to refuse to perform these marriages?
The “yes on 1″ people have turned this into a scare-tactic fest, with warnings of “teaching homosexuality in the schools” if the law stands. What the fuck are these people smoking?
If you’re a regular to this blog, then you already know how I feel about gay marriage. But I’ve been thinking about these Yes on 1 wackos quite a lot lately, as they infiltrate my living room with the slime oozing out from my TV set.
Let me get this straight, good Christians – you believe that every human being has a soul and, depending on how one conducts their life, the soul will leave one’s physical body and go to heaven or to hell. One of the motivations you have as good Christians in this gay marriage debate is to save these poor, sinful homos from themselves and try to help them see the error of their despicable ways. Man shall not lie down with man, blah blah blah.
Each of us is born as either male or female (or sometimes a little of both). If I understand the Christian way of thinking (Christian thinking, now there’s an oxymoron for you) then the soul of each person is also either male or female. (Must be so – why else would these religious wackos have their knickers in such a twist?) So, good Christians, riddle me this – what about those people who have a sex change operation? What about a woman who lives her life as a lesbian, then has a sex change operation to become a man and then marries a woman? I personally know one such person for whom this has been life’s lot. Did this person change the gender of their soul? Could one argue that this woman saw the sinfulness of her ways living as a lesbian and decided to become a heterosexual man? Is this person going to heaven or hell when he/she dies? And will the soul of this person be as it was from birth, or at the time of death? If the physical and the spiritual are separate, then fornication and other such activities of human genitalia are of no importance, or they shouldn’t be.
It’s ridiculous, ain’t it? Ah yes, just another of the myriad ways in which we can all see how silly and ignorant and backwards it is that we have allowed government to be more important than love. So let’s keep Big Brother and his bible out of the bedroom already, alright?

Just a tasty little nugget o’ cartoon goodness. Enjoy.
