FerneJohn: The sick part is that this ad is pretty tame compared to some of his other anti-gay rhetoric. Regardless, it's also a transparent ploy to get back in the race by appealing to social conservatives bigots.


Yeah I guess those are synonyms.

Comparing Rick Perry to cancer is retarded.

One is a mutated, malignant mass of cells that will eat you alive causing excruciating pain and leaving you wishing for the sweet release of death...

whosits_112: HeartBurnKid: Imperialism: Why is Rebecca Black hated by the internet? People posted her terrible music video everywhere (she didn't spam it) and then complained that her terrible music video was posted everywhere.

Same reason the Internet hates Rick Astley, I guess. By the time it becomes a meme, all the "cool kids" are already on to something else.

Same here. Let us not desert the Rick!

mainstreet62: God Is My Co-Pirate: heinekenftw: If given the choice between Rick Perry and malignant cancer, well I guess I'll take Rick Perry.

Sure, but you'd have to think about it.

It depends on whether or not the cancer is curable. If it is, I'd rather have the cancer. If not, I'd rather deal with Rick Perry.


If it means saving the country, I'd take one for the team. Besides, knowing that your death will happen shortly and probably before your trial is finished, can be pretty freeing for a man...

trotsky: RandomExcess: The anti-Christian bias of Obama's liberal secularism is common on the internet. Color me shocked.

Could you translate this into something resembling English please? Goddamn, the trolls are getting worse by the week here.


You don't speak derp?

I'll translate: People on the internet are more educated and open minded than most social conservatives who are bigots. Obama believe in separation of church and state, we are against that because we want to make the US into a Christian theocracy.

I think that pretty much covers it.

I had to look up who Rebecca Black was...

I would put Rick Perry lower than both Black and cancer, to be honest with you subby. I don't think the talentless Ms Black has attempted to use bigotry against gays to garner support from other bigots... and cancer isn't purposefully trying to destroy people's lives.

Flappyhead: Serious Black: heinekenftw: If given the choice between Rick Perry and Rebecca Black, I'd honestly take Rebecca Black.

If given the choice between Rick Perry and Cancer, I'd probably take cancer, so long as its the benign type that is easily taken care of.

If given the choice between Rick Perry and malignant cancer, well I guess I'll take Rick Perry.

Bad choice in my opinion. Malignant cancer will only ruin your life if chemo can't stop it. Rick Perry has the capacity to ruin everyone's life by launching nukes at Iran and Pakistan.

Can you just imagine his environmental policies? "Forrest slashed and burned? Just pray and Jesus will make the trees grow back!" "Drinking water lethally contaminated with arsenic and mercury? Accept God into your life and drink up!"


Run Forrest, run!

Translation, assuming you're trying to figure out the thought process:

I'm starting to think about organizing a trade. We'll give you the middle of our country in exchange for the west coast and the North East.


How about you just absorb those parts and leave the rest to form a Proper Christian Nation, like our Founding Fathers intended. Of course, offer an out for those citizens who do not wish to live in theocracy.

DarnoKonrad: Cancer/Cornea paper cut 2012


have you ever had a cornea paper cut? I have ( thrown book, 3rd grade, odd story). It's the most painful thing I've experienced. Everything would be fine, then I'd try to open my eye because I'd have a momentary laps of judgement and then the world would go away and I'd just scream and cry for 5-10 minutes.

I'm not saying I'm selfish enough to inflict Perry on the nation, but it's a close call.

CNET: Rick Perry fails YouTube 101

"It could be argued that the Perry people want to be transparent--after all, to have turned off voting once the tide had turned against the candidate might not have looked good. In that case, then, removing the ad from YouTube altogether might have been a better choice. Yet, the ad is still there, and voting is still enabled.

One reason might be that the video is currently holding center court on the Rick Perry for president Web site. It would be pretty obvious then if the ad was removed from YouTube. "

I would think a candidate team would be smart to host their own media server.

Hey, that's how we roll. It's like the "War on Christmas". It doesn't exist, and talking about it like it does gets everybody upset, but by god we're going to talk about it...


I'm always confused about why Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reily and their ilk are fighting to get stores to use Jesus to sell products. "This year's big product Snifftel Bits, with a tesimonial by Jesus, "when the Romans rode their horses to the mountain of Olives, they used Sniffel Bits (tm), and I would too!"

It just makes there religion seem that much more pathetic.

What goes into a man's mouth does not make him 'unclean,' but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him 'unclean.'

Mark 7:15
Nothing outside a man can make him 'unclean' by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a man that makes him 'unclean.'

So Jesus was OK with oral sex as long as you swallow, and any other kind of penetration you can manage as long as you don't produce santorum.

/Seriously: Jesus is saying that what you eat, how you dress, how you wash, and the rest of what you do with your body don't defile you or make you holy. Only the words and thoughts and deeds that come out of your body can defile you or raise you up.
//It's not often that the Gospel is transparently clear about something. This is one of those times.

Will Perry become more disliked than LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE?

Perry's "Strong" is rapidly becoming one of the most disliked videos on YouTube. I am using The Most Disliked Videos on YouTube Ever for most of my pointers though the data there is out of date.

"Strong"s dislike has already surpassed #5 Justin Bieber - Somebody To Love Remix ft. Usher with:

380,726 likes, 146,044 dislikes - though JB gets a lot of likes

The next milestone will be #4 Justin Bieber - Never Say Never ft. Jaden Smith with:

497,768 likes, 209,808 dislikes

Not listed on that disliked page is #3 LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE! with:

146,442 likes, 229,782 dislikes

"Strong" probably won't reach the level of dislike of the top two: Justin Bieber - Baby ft. Ludacris (2,066,341) and "Rebecca Black - Friday (OFFICIAL VIDEO) (1,444,274)"

I'm still not sure if he's a Dominionist himself, but Mr. Perry has some awfully strong ties to many who are. Dominionists believe - among other things - that homosexuals are "normal" people who have been possessed by demons. Let that sink in. They think I'm gay because I'm possessed by a demon. For real. Mr. Perry probably truly thinks he was showing restraint in that ad, and can't understand what all the uproar is about.

Corvus: Can you point me out the bible verse where Jesus said homosexuality is wrong?


Jews are known to be rather hair-splitting legalistic in their interpretation of laws. While Leviticus says not to lay with a man as one does with a woman, it says nothing about blow-jobs.

I figure Jesus and the Disciples were all gay and the last supper really was a daisy-chain.

The Christian rite of communion, modeled on the last supper, is this weird cannibalistic ritual of eating and drinking Jesus which is supposed to have religious symbolism but doesn't have analogues in other religious acts or religions.

What if the eating and drinking was literally true. Anybody at the last supper would know what "eat" was supposed to mean and they wouldn't bite off Jesus's dick.

I always took that to mean "don't lay on your back and put your arm around a man while he tucks his head into your armpit." Is there some other way to lay with a woman that I don't know about?

I'm no biblical scholar but I know that some translations of Mark 7:21 but not others use the phrase "sexual immorality." What that means is beyond me.

For example, Mark 7:20-23 read as follows in the New International Version: 20 He went on: "What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person's heart, that evil thoughts come- sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person."

By contrast, the King James: 20And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

So, rather ambiguous. "Sexual immorality" in one but not the other. And, of course, this was written decades after Jesus died, by someone who wasn't there when he is said to have uttered these words, but that's a different issue.

Any Greek experts out there who might know what the original said?
