Where is Talk2Action? [Nov. 7th, 2010|06:05 pm]

Has anyone else had a problem accessing T2A.org? I keep getting "Cannot find server" errors. Am I totally paranoid to find this a teensy bit smelly only days after the Tea PArty election sweeps? More importantly, does anyone know why they're down?

These People Are Fucking Morons [Nov. 7th, 2010|07:47 am]

[Current Mood |cynicalcynical]

Oklahoma voters may have accidentally outlawed the 10 Commandments

It looks like voters in Oklahoma just ratified the law of unintended consequences.

Lawmakers in the Sooner State put a constitutional amendment banning the application of Islamic law by Oklahoma courts on the ballot for Tuesday's election.

But the amendment, which also banned the use of international law in judicial decision-making, might force Oklahoma judges to ignore all laws that were conceived on foreign soil, including the 10 Commandments.

"I would like to see Oklahoma politicians explain if this means that the courts can no longer consider the Ten Commandments. Isn't that a precept of another culture and another nation?" said a University of Oklahoma law professor. "The result of this is that judges aren't going to know when and how they can look at sources of American law that were international law in origin. Many of us who understand the law are scratching our heads this morning, laughing so we don't cry."

The measure was overwhelmingly approved, despite months of resistance from legal experts who argued that it blatantly violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and, oh yeah, sharia law has never once been applied by an Oklahoma judge.

The amendment's principal author argued that the state needed to make a "pre-emptive strike" against the dangers of Islamic theocracy.

I'll bet George Bush could've told him pre-emptive strikes don't always have the results you had hoped for.

Oh, and for those who don't know about the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, it's the one Christine O'Donnell had so much trouble with.

Desperate Ballot Measures [Oct. 29th, 2010|08:56 am]

[Current Mood |cynicalcynical]

A California ballot measure to legalize Christian terrorism. I underlined the key elements.

Ballot Watch: New Update Issued for Bible-Based Initiative
Submitted by jbrown on Tue, 10/26/2010 - 09:02

The Secretary of State has qualified a new initiative to enter circulation so that its proponents can gather signatures for a future election. The initiative is sponsored by a Pastor named Allan Esses and is as follows:

1475. (10-0022) Creates Special Constitutional Rule for Speech Based on the Bible. Initiative Constitutional Amendment.

The official ballot description states:

Exempts speech based on biblical authority from existing constitutional and statutory restrictions applicable to all other speech, including restrictions against discrimination and hate crimes. Repeals constitutional provision denying protection to acts of religious expression inconsistent with the peace or safety of the State. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Potentially minor increased costs to state and local governments to resolve legal issues pertaining to the effect of the measure."

Essentially, the proponents wish to strike the following sentence from the state Constitution: “This liberty of conscience does not excuse acts that are licentious or inconsistent with the peace or safety of the State.” By having this sentenced removed, supporters want the freedom to speak their views freely about the following subjects, as articulated in their proposal to the Attorney General:

“We the People of the State of California, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom in order to perpetuate His blessings do submit that a person using any part of the Bible's content as authority may freely speak, pray, write, discuss, publish, preach, teach, hear, share his or her faith, to proclaim Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father, engage in street witnessing, distribute written material or otherwise communicate any views on salvation, heaven, or abortion, adultery, alcoholism, anti-Semitism, astrology, bestiality, bigamy, bisexuality, blasphemy, civil unions, coarse jesting, cohabitation, coveting, cross-dressing, cults, drugs, drunkenness, extortion, euthanasia, evil, evolution, fornication, gay marriage, gender identity, hell, heresy, homosexuality, idolaters, idolatry, incest, lying, murder, necromancy, other religions, pornography, psychics, rape, reviling, sex, sexual immorality, sexual orientation. sodomy, sorcery, stealing, transgender, trans-sexuality, witchcraft, yoga, or sin at any public or private gatherings, school, church or other place of worship, Bible Study group or sidewalk or in any communicative medium, the internet, satellite, television, film, theater, radio, videos, recording, newspapers, magazines, music, and periodicals or by means of a computer, telephone, cell phone or fax machine.”

This potential initiative’s circulation deadline is March 24, 2011. Its supporters must gather at least 694,354 signatures.

The Assassination of Dr. Tiller' [Oct. 26th, 2010|04:06 am]

[Current Mood |annoyedMilitant]

New documentary looks into whether there were larger forces behind abortion doctor's murder. Rachel Maddow hosts.

The msnbc documentary includes interviews with eyewitnesses to the murder, trial footage of Roeder on the stand, never-before-seen video of Tiller talking about an attempt on his life, and an interview with Roeder's ex-wife, Lindsey. She traces Roeder's path from his anti-abortion stance to murder: his obsession with Paul Hill, the man convicted and executed for murdering Florida abortion provider John Britton, and his communication with Rachelle Shelly Shannon, the woman in prison for attempting to kill Tiller in 1993.

More theocractic dipshittery from Israel: [Oct. 10th, 2010|03:59 pm]

[Current Mood |shockedwtfits]


Israel's Cabinet approved on Sunday a bill that would require new citizens to pledge a loyalty oath to a "Jewish and democratic" state, language that triggered charges of racism from Arab lawmakers who see it as undermining the rights of the country's Arab minority.

The measure was largely symbolic, since few non-Jews apply for Israeli citizenship. Nevertheless, it infuriated the Arab minority and stoked tensions with Palestinians at a time when fledgling peace talks are deadlocked over Israel's refusal to extend a moratorium on new building in West Bank Jewish settlements.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the bill reflected the essence of Israel at a time when he said many in the world are trying to blur the connection between the Jewish people and their homeland.

Lemur time:

For non-sighted: A lemur macro saying "Aw Hell Naw, I ain't got time for this."


Seriously, Jewish and democratic? WTF is Israel playing at? Sometimes I swear stories coming from Jerusalem seem better suited to Tehran. This is an atavistic mindset that frankly maketh no senseth. For that matter the idea of a state representing a single religion, let alone a single ethnoreligion, is entirely contrary to the principles of the modern age.

And if I may add, given that this is a thing I'm still WTF about, I'm so glad these fuckers are our allies in the region. >.<

Why Dommies fail logic forever: [Oct. 9th, 2010|01:38 pm]


At this point the Dommies are becoming parodies of themselves.

The fire department did the right and Christian thing. The right thing, by the way, is also the Christian thing, because there can be no difference between the two. The right thing to do will always be the Christian thing to do, and the Christian thing to do will always be the right thing to do.  

If I somehow think the right thing to do is not the Christian thing to do, then I am either confused about what is right or confused about Christianity, or both.  

In this case, critics of the fire department are confused both about right and wrong and about Christianity. And it is because they have fallen prey to a weakened, feminized version of Christianity that is only about softer virtues such as compassion and not in any part about the muscular Christian virtues of individual responsibility and accountability.

Seriously, WTF is this guy on about? It's like the worst parts of 19th Century political thinking merged with Objectivism and the You Fail Logic Forever part of TVTropes. This kind of thing makes me angry on both a theological and a personal level. The Dominionist heresy is the greatest threat within Christianity these days and guys like the idiot who wrote this thing are why.

Quick Question [Sep. 28th, 2010|12:45 pm]

I am looking for academic sources to document and/or discuss the idea of "Crusading" in contemporary dommie ideology.

(Yes, I am using Goole Books & WorldCat, but if anyone knows of something, I'd hate to miss a key document. I will also be using plenty of source material, e.g. websites, etc.)

Any suggestions are most welcome! Thanks! (X-posted a bit, sorry if you see this twice!)

'The religious right is a fund-raising operaton, not a political operation' [Sep. 20th, 2010|09:52 pm]

[Current Mood |cynicalcynical]

A nice Rachel Maddow segment on the religious right (including our new favorite, the Handmaiden Christine O'Donnell).

Midway through, she interviews Frank Schaeffer, son of one of the founders of the religious right. He knows whereof he speaks. Mr. Schaeffer's interview starts at 6:30.

Flim-flam artists. Or, as
CREW points out, "clearly criminal." We're in Barnum territory, folks.

Florida church may not burn Qurans, but Kansas church says it will

Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., may have “suspended” plans to burn copies of the Quran on the anniversary of 9/11. But the controversial Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., says it will burn the Quran. In fact, it already has.
