The Bellews really blew it.

September 21, 2012

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.

I’ve been silent too long.

Well, faithful readers… I’m back.

It’s been too long.  There is too much bullshit going on that needs to be addressed.  I’ve been remiss in doing my part, as Hitch put it, to destroy the enemies of civilization.

Stay tuned for more vitriol, more reason — and, I hope, more pursuit of truth, wherever that path may lead me.

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

Kirk Cameron is such a moron.

If you’re looking for a slice of unrelenting fury that cuts right through Kirk Cameron’s bullshit, check out this video:

The idea of a bunch of religious wackos handing out stacks of Darwin’s book, even with 50 pages of ridiculous foreword, is like FOX News saying, “Girls Gone Wild is destroying America” and then showing nothing but GGW in their B-roll.

And can someone please tell me why these nutcases insist on the link between Darwin and racism and Adolph fucking Hitler?  Oh wait, I know why – scare tactics.  Religions the world over have been employing scare tactics, torture, brainwashing and mind-fuckery since the dawn of the religious impulse in order to bring up the numbers of their respective folds and to mold the minds of otherwise pattern-seeking human mammalians.

Anyhow, enjoy the video, infidels!   Oh, and Ray Comfort can shove that homoerotic banana up his ass.

I have a new hero.

And his name is Brad.

This piece of brilliance more than makes up for his suck ass movie.
