I'm Just A Pat-sy!

Well, if you have been following the news here in the good ol' US of A (and if you know me at all) you should have been expecting this post:

It seems one of our favorite reverends, Pat Robertson, has once again put his foot in his mouth. On Monday night, the Christian Coalition founder called for the assassination of the president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. Regardless of how you may feel personally about Chavez, it just seems to me that calling for the assassination of a foreign leader is not WJWD (What Jesus Would Do)...or maybe it is, hell I don't know. Regardless, having a religious leader calling for the assassination of a president just sounds rather Al Quaida-ish, don't you think? (Another tie-in to my previous article "What's the Difference" located below this one.)

Today, Patsy boy tried defending himself by further sticking his foot in his mouth. "I didn't say 'assassination', I said our special forces should go 'take him out,' and 'take him out' could be a number of things, including kidnapping...I was misinterpreted by the AP, but that happens all the time."

Well, first off, I think anyone with any sense at all would have taken your comments of 'take him out' to mean 'Kill.' I sure as hell did. Don't blame the AP for your poor choice of words (if those were the words you had used.)

Second, you did call for his assassination. I know you are getting older in your age, and because of that, your memory may be sliding a bit...but c'mon, surely you remember your words from two days ago...right? If not, here they are: "If he thinks we are trying to assassinate him, we should go ahead and do it..."

I thought lying was a sin in your book Pat-sy boy...guess I'll see ya in hell!

What's The Difference?

Can anyone here (particularly any theists that are lurking about) tell me the difference between Christian Extremism and the Muslim terrorists?

Before you answer (or read further), check out this website: www.forceministries.com

Did you see the 'Mission Strategy'? Purpose: Impart faith in Christ The dictionary I use defines 'Impart' as "Allowing others to partake in." Using the military and it's weapons to spread the word of Christ is not 'Imparting' anyone to do it...It's 'Forcing' them to do it. But of course, the founders of this organization already realize this (take a look at the 'Defining Passage' they use, and tell me I am wrong.)

As an Ex-Active Duty Marine, a site such as this infuriates me. I never joined the Marines to spread the word of god (and I was a Christian back then)...I joined the Corps to protect this great nation...this included the protection of our right to freedom of religion, as well as freedom from religion.

What is the difference between a Christian Extremist and a Mulsim Terrorist? One shouts 'Allah Ackbar' while they kill...the other shouts 'Spread the Good News' while they kill.

Once again, we have an answer to those that ask "What is wrong with having a little faith?"

Hey All...

Sorry for the lack of any posts this week. Just recently got promoted and have been working my fingers to the bone.

Posts will resume next week. In the meantime, if you have a particular topic or subject (relevant to this blogs subject matter, obviously) that you would like me to comment on, or make a post about, feel free to leave the idea in the 'Comments' section.

Everyone have a good weekend.

Jerry Falwell: 'Vote Christian'

Reverend Jerry Falwell, founder of Liberty University and the 'Moral Majority', has come under fire by some jewish groups, as well as the Anti-Defamation League, for sending out letters and bumper stickers with the phrase 'Vote Christian' on them.

The 'reverend' appeared on the Fox News Channel show "Your World with Neil Cavuto," last night to try to explain himself...let's see how he did:


CAVUTO: You have no anti-Semitic intentions here?

FALWELL: Oh, absolutely not. Anybody who knows me knows better than that.


Well, Mr. Falwell, does 'anybody who knows' you, know that you have made these following statements in the past as well?:

"The Jews are returning to their land of unbelief. They are spiritually blind and desperately in need of their Messiah and Savior." - Personally I sense just a tinge of anti-semitism here...

"The Antichrist will, by necessity, be a Jewish male." - Falwell...Hitler...What's the difference?

"If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being." - Wow, not just anti-semetic...this is anti-MajorityOfTheWorld.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again...If heaven is full of people like Mr Falwell here, I'll be more than happy spending my time in hell.

"Until we get rid of religion, we will never advance past being nothing more than a bunch of bickering tribes." - Some guy I heard on the radio last night.

What's Wrong With Having A Little Faith?

The next time you are in a debate with a theist and they bring up this question, point them in the direction of Fred Phelps, a reverend at the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas. This guy and his followers are a perfect example of the dangers that can arise when you use faith over reason.

Last week Phelps and 15 of his followers (including children) led a protest at a U.S. soldiers funeral. Their reasoning? The protesters stated that America has ignored the word of God, and those who defend the nation must pay a price. One protester even had a sign that read, "Thank God For IEDs," which are explosive devices used by insurgents to blow up military convoys.

"Who would serve a nation that is godless and has flipped off, defiantly defied, defiantly flipped off, the Lord their God?" said protester Shirley Phelps-Roper (aka: Moron-Wacko) "That's the first piece of solid evidence that you have that the young man is currently in hell..."

The soldier, Spc. Edward Myers, was killed in combat in Iraq and left behind a wife and two children.

G.W. Wants Intelligent Design Taught

The President, in his infinite wisdom, stated yesterday for the record that he believes 'Intelligent Design' should be taught alongside evolution in our public schools.

"You're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes," he stated to a round table of reporters.

Yes Mr. President, you are absolutely correct. No longer shall we teach facts in our schools. Let's just teach ideas. Furthermore, let's just teach ideas that have absolutely no basis in fact.

Since apparently what we really want to do is teach our kids to have ideas alone, and not facts, let's teach that 2+2 now equal 'Chair'...Let's teach that the Sun is really a tiki torch floating upon a tortoise...Let's teach that 'The Germ Theory of Disease' should be taght alongside 'The Catholic Theory of Possession' as the cause of sickness in this world...After all, all we really want to do is teach ideas, not facts.

Ahhh...Georgie Boy, why did we elect thee?
