  1. Sad to say – Kris Kobach is only saying out loud what a lot of these self-professing, loud and proud Fundy Christians, truly believe.

    Hey – it is the same thing with Fred Phelps and his Gang. When Fred and his Gang spews his hate for all homosexuals – that is okay with the same group of folks that think Kobach is God’s right hand man.

    Where there is hate…..some group of fundamentalists are close by…..count on it.

    This goes for Christians AND Muslims – or any religion.

    • I’ve heard them — exactly as you say. Full of hate and so immature. In fact, they sound like they’re afraid. I read something earlier — a great satire piece about their fear. I’ll go find it. It’s not long and it’s the best kind of humor because it’s based on facts that we all witness on a daily basis.

  2. BERKELEY, Calif. – After a video of a Pennsylvania sheriff, in which he shot a fully automatic rifle after ranting about “libtards,” went viral, a Berkeley, Calif. woman decided to heed the sheriff’s advice and grow a pair of balls.

    “It was easier than I thought it would be,” claimed Belinda Martin, a 34-year-old entrepreneur and political activist. “I bought a gun, a Dodge Ram pickup with a rack to put it in, worked out at a different gym, loaded my diet with red meat and bacon and almost overnight, they started to grow.

    Of course, I took some crap from my fellow Berkeleyans, especially for the Confederate flag bumper sticker and the balls I had to hang on the back of my truck, just to prove that I had some inside my truck too.

    But then, things started to get really strange. Everywhere I looked, I saw libtards, feminazis, politicians and just plain old assholes coming to take away all my rights. Black people in hoodies wanted to kill me (I could tell because of the way they said ‘hello’). I quit going to the gym, because I’d rather get fat than have Michelle Obama tell me how to run my life. Mexicans wanted to take my job (even though I owned the company).”

    HA! Funny stuff.

    As regards today’s graphic, all I can say is…”from your lips to God’s ears.”

    I have a feeling there is fixing to be a battle, after reading the intent of my daughter-in-law and her parents which she posted to face book. My mother since she is not living in her house in Wichita will let my son and his family live there till things get settled. Well a bunch of the Terry Fox church is coming over to fix up the house and now I read that the intent is to when they find a house they like better. To SELL MY MOTHER’S HOUSE, get recoup any money and labor expended! WTF? That is no more real Christian then killing babies to appraise a wrathful stone idol!

    I am sure I will be upsetting if not estranging them some time since I have real trouble keeping my mouth shut.

    • Can someone other than your Mother legally sell her home?

      Take a deep breath. You’ll handle it fine. If the person you may ‘upset’ is doing something they shouldn’t they need to see the error of their ways.

      Thanks Fnord, I got it straighten out, they will live there for a time and save their money to get a house. Then when the house is sold the money they put out will come from what money mom gets for the house.

      LOL I got a call from my wife after I sent a copy of what was posted. She called them to make sure what was what. FYI I will be glad when mom does sell the house. The monthly calls from the Police and the letter from the city inspection department is getting annoying.

      • Just a question……who asked Terry Fox and his churches to come fix up the house?

        The DIL and her parents? Are they Foxxies?

      • Hey R.D. – remember when JIm and Tammy Faye Bakker got into legal trouble?

        The Bakkers let Jerry Falwell take over that amusement park – and I read that Jerry Falwell was in that deal only to make as much money as possible off the Bakkers while they were in legal trouble.

        Isn’t that vultures do – swoop in, smack their lips on the corpse and then fly off with their bellies’ full?

      • IIRC – Tammy Faye Bakker came out in public and said exactly what she thought of Jerry Falwell……and it was not nice.

  5. “Same Love” — LYRICS

    When I was in the third grade I thought that I was gay,
    ‘Cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight.
    I told my mom, tears rushing down my face
    She’s like “Ben you’ve loved girls since before pre-k, trippin’ ”
    Yeah, I guess she had a point, didn’t she?
    Bunch of stereotypes all in my head.
    I remember doing the math like, “Yeah, I’m good at little league”
    A preconceived idea of what it all meant
    For those that liked the same sex
    Had the characteristics
    The right wing conservatives think it’s a decision
    And you can be cured with some treatment and religion
    Man-made rewiring of a predisposition
    Playing God, aw nah here we go
    America the brave still fears what we don’t know
    And God loves all his children, is somehow forgotten
    But we paraphrase a book written thirty-five-hundred years ago
    I don’t know

    And I can’t change
    Even if I tried
    Even if I wanted to
    And I can’t change
    Even if I tried
    Even if I wanted to
    My love
    My love
    My love
    She keeps me warm
    She keeps me warm
    She keeps me warm
    She keeps me warm

    If I was gay, I would think hip-hop hates me
    Have you read the YouTube comments lately?
    “Man, that’s gay” gets dropped on the daily
    We become so numb to what we’re saying
    A culture founded from oppression
    Yet we don’t have acceptance for ’em
    Call each other faggots behind the keys of a message board
    A word rooted in hate, yet our genre still ignores it
    Gay is synonymous with the lesser
    It’s the same hate that’s caused wars from religion
    Gender to skin color, the complexion of your pigment
    The same fight that led people to walk outs and sit ins
    It’s human rights for everybody, there is no difference!
    Live on and be yourself
    When I was at church they taught me something else
    If you preach hate at the service those words aren’t anointed
    That holy water that you soak in has been poisoned
    When everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless
    Rather than fighting for humans that have had their rights stolen
    I might not be the same, but that’s not important
    No freedom till we’re equal, damn right I support it

    (I don’t know)

    And I can’t change
    Even if I tried
    Even if I wanted to
    My love
    My love
    My love
    She keeps me warm
    She keeps me warm
    She keeps me warm
    She keeps me warm

    We press play, don’t press pause
    Progress, march on
    With the veil over our eyes
    We turn our back on the cause
    Till the day that my uncles can be united by law
    When kids are walking ’round the hallway plagued by pain in their heart
    A world so hateful some would rather die than be who they are
    And a certificate on paper isn’t gonna solve it all
    But it’s a damn good place to start
    No law is gonna change us
    We have to change us
    Whatever God you believe in
    We come from the same one
    Strip away the fear
    Underneath it’s all the same love
    About time that we raised up

    And I can’t change
    Even if I tried
    Even if I wanted to
    And I can’t change
    Even if I try
    Even if I wanted to
    My love
    My love
    My love
    She keeps me warm
    She keeps me warm
    She keeps me warm
    She keeps me warm

    Love is patient
    Love is kind
    Love is patient
    Love is kind
    (not crying on Sundays)
    Love is patient
    (not crying on Sundays)
    Love is kind
    (I’m not crying on Sundays)
    Love is patient
    (not crying on Sundays)
    Love is kind
    (I’m not crying on Sundays)
    Love is patient
    (not crying on Sundays)
    Love is kind
    (I’m not crying on Sundays)
    Love is patient
    Love is kind

    • (from the link): Sometimes, your heart starts to break, and you don’t know why. You catch yourself emotionally limping through life, or angry and explosive at the drop of a dime, or feeling like a small, wounded child, and not understanding why.

      Such has been the case recently. I’ve been struggling with very deep feelings of anger, hurt, and betrayal – feelings that have made writing, rest, and engaging with other people in productive, peaceful ways very difficult. When I finally noticed these powerful feelings, I sat with them, trying to understand their origin. In a moment of clarity, I suddenly said to myself, I know these feelings. I’ve felt them before.
