"I'm gonna fight the Murfreesboro Mosque..."


The Parable of the Good Samaritan

And Jesus said to them, "A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he travelled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. He set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, and gave them to the host, and said to him, 'Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.' Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbor to him who fell among the robbers?"
He said, "He who showed mercy on him."
Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do."

Jackson should hunt down her Sunday School teacher and make him apologize. It would do more to help the cause of peace than practicing the religious bigotry she learned in Sunday School.

/A bit of historical context. Samaritans were hated by the religious sects Jesus was speaking to when he told this parable.

Albert911emt: jsteiner78: During the election, there were lots of campaign signs around the burbs of Nashville that said 'Pray for Religious Freedom, Romney 2012" - it had to do with the whole birth control insurance mandate thing -

The BEST place I saw this sign was in a yard, directly next to another sign that said 'Say NO to the Murfreesboro Mosque!'

It really is unbelievable that someone could have both signs in their yard -

Because freedumb of religion is only valid if it's Christianity we're fighting for.


"Freedom of religion" has become a code phrase for Dominionism, much as "family values" became a code phrase for homophobia, opposition to abortion, and opposition to feminism a decade or two ago.  The Newspeak has become so pervasive that I don't think the religious right would ever see a contradiction between fighting for "freedom of religion" and opposing the practice of any religion other than (their brand of) Christianity.  The most recent one I've noticed (on Fark anyway) is using "partisan" to mean "not Conservative."

This is one thing that Conservatives in the USA are really, really good at and Liberals are really, really bad at: coming up with buzzwords, dogwhistles, and terms of art to shape the way English is commonly used in the USA to guide thought.  It's one lesson from George Orwell that they truly have learned very well.  It's scarily effective.  It's almost cult-like

Not talented enough to be a star.

Not kind enough to be a Christian.

LordBeavis: Her IMDB bio looks like it was written by someone who is borderline illiterate or a troll (maybe both).  "Recently she has guest-starred on sitcoms such as The Naked Truth and The 700 Club."

Victoria was raised in a Bible-believing, piano-playing, gymnastic home with no TV. Her dad was a gym coach so she competed in gymnastics from age 5 to age l8. Was a cheerleader, and a homecoming queen. Attended Florida Bible College; received gymnastic scholarship to Furman Univ., attended Auburn Univ. one year and ended up in Hollywood, California via summer-stock in Alabama, where she met Johnny Crawford of The Rifleman. Crawford put her in his night club act, and later sent her a one-way ticket to the show-biz capital. Supporting herself as a cigarette girl and as a typist at the American Cancer Society, and waitress at a retirement hotel, she performed stand up comedy for 2 years until _The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson_ (1962) put her act (which consisted of her doing a handstand while reciting poetry) on national TV. Following her 22 appearances with Johnny, she starred in many movies and TV shows, most notably Saturday Night Live. In l99l she re-united with her high school sweetheart, married him, and moved to Florida where he's a police helicopter pilot. As a mother of two, homemaking is her priority now, but she's always available to perform ...if the price is right! She just recorded a children's album called "Ukelele Lady" by Choo Choo Records, available in record stores now. She's compiling an album of her original songs, i.e. "I Am Not A Bimbo", and Where Do You Draw the Line Between Love and Adultery?", to sell on the Internet. Recently she has guest-starred on sitcoms such as The Naked Truth and The 700 Club.


$10 says Vickie wrote that herself and cut-and-pasted it from a "where are they now " blurb for her 20th high-school reunion

I've read her autobiography (I've read all of the SNL books) Even with professional editing her crazy just jumps off of the page. She's also an alcoholic (she doesn't admit to it but she can't hide it). The funniest part is that the real derp doesn't even begin until the last chapter or two. Sure there are some dog whistles here and there. (which makes it surprising she chose a state with as high a black population as TN) but when you get to the last chapters she has a list of "10 Reasons Why Obama is a Communist" and it the book just ends in the middle of number 5. It's like the publisher just said "fark it, I'm out."

I guess she moved to TN to be closer to her daughter. I wonder if this means her husband who clearly hates her is coming out of the closet and getting a divorce?

/Best SNL autobiography that you haven't read is by Al Franken's old partner, Tom Davis.

show me: CSB time: The article mentions that she is in a fight to prevent a mosque from being built in Murfee Merph a suburb of Nashville. That's actually real progress. I did a consulting gig in Nashville for a year back in 1995 and while I was there there was a big fight, using underhanded techniques like zoning, etc., to prevent a farking Mormon Temple from being built! Christians fighting Christians! (Well, I guess REAL Christians don't consider Mormons to be TRUE Christians, but they sure got behind Romney.)


Trust me, Romney being Mormon was a big problem for people who wanted a "Christian" candidate.

A friend told my mother at church shortly before the election, "I have having to choose between a Muslim and a Mormon."

That's pretty much all you need to know about the American voters who saw the election through the lens of religion.

Her recent actions are funnier than anything she ever did on SNL. I'm thinking this is kind of a Joaquin Phoenix type of hoax, and in a few years she'll tell us it was all an act.
