Just a like-minded group of rugged individualists who want less government and lower taxes.

Legal definition of an insane delusion:

"A person has an insane delusion when they have  a persistent belief in that which has no existence in fact, and which is adhered to against all evidence"

Religious people are insane

She also said 55 million was less than the population of Canada. Numbers are hard but the Bible is easy because you can pretend that shiat is saying anything you want.

Harlan Ellison wrote a short story where the universe is run by a race of hyper-intelligent, hyper-wise beings. They all sort of take charge of various parts of the universe to help the lower species evolve into something greater like themselves.

However, one of the beings goes mad and becomes an insane dictator who demands the populace worship him, and when they displease him he murders thousands for sport. The beings send a secret agent to the planet in a covert op attempt to steer the people away from this deranged monster.

Of course the secret agent is Satan and the deranged being is Jehovah.

The judeo-Christian god seems to be bipolar and have impulse control issues.

She was saying that the U.S. had opportunities to repent in 2001 (after 9/11), then seven years later in 2008 (financial crisis).  The comment about "another seven years" referred to seven years after 2008.  So, yeah, 2015.

Wait, I understand that bit.  9/11 was 2001, the financial crisis was 2008 (7 years later).  Another 7 years from then would be 2015.

But there's plenty more crazy in there.  "She grew nostalgic for the weeks immediately following the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001"

Yeah, lady--I also grow nostalgic for bouts of depression, near-PTSD, economic ruin, loss of lives, and a couple of wars.  Good times, good times...

"In this nation we have turned away from the God of the Bible and we've told him he's simply not welcome here," McGowan said. "We have welcomed pluralism, atheism, secular humanism, Wicca and even Islam."

This quote seems to suggest a belief that being a witch is at least better than being a Muslim.  So congratulations Wiccans!  You're not at the bottom of the pile.
 
2013-12-02 02:27:00 PM  
There is something to the idea that some people create a personal god in their own image. So Brooke McGowan's god is petty, selfish, and will hurt anything that does not go it's way,
 
2013-12-02 02:28:05 PM  
There's some precedent for that, if you believe the Bible.

Setting aside the creed "God Bless America" and American Exceptionalism (We're America so OBVIOUSLY we're BEST because 'MURIKA)...

What has God done for the US? What has God shielded the US from, blessed us with, whatever? I mean, if God treated the US like the rest of say, Europe - what would happen?

If God sends us Hurricanes and Tornados and whatnots because he's angry at us, why hasn't he reduced Europe to rubble by now? They don't seem to have any natural disasters. And really, if God removed his "blessing" or whatever from the US, does this mean he'd stop sending hurricanes and wildfires at us?

You know what the beauty of the Tea party is? I've figured this out from a friend of mine who is a rabid Tea Partier, and that I just got back in touch with after 15 years or so on FB...

See, according to my buddy, the TP has no "leaders", nobody is "official", and nobody "speaks for them"... This allows people to spout all kinds of bullshiat in the name of the Tea Party, and yet he sleeps at night because he has convinced himself that he isn't a racist or anything like that, because the TP doesn't "speak for him".

Except for when it does...

In reality, when we hung out, he wasn't blatantly racist, but he also didn't go out of his way to cover up when shiat slipped. On an interesting side note, I got to shoot a Nazi Luger his dad had that was from WWII. Sure, the thing is a collector's piece, but his dad was the Survivalist type, and felt that guns were meant for a reason... Of course, owning Nazi memorabilia isn't always racist, but as long as I did know this guy, I'd be more surprised to find out that he WASN'T racist...

Another Teabagger steps up to present her understanding of reality.  Unfortunately, in comparison to all Teabaggers, she is a genius.

Isn't this basically the Westboro Baptist Church's stance, except replace "religious tolerance" with "teh gheys"?

I used to think the WBC was the one contemporary group (aside from Illinois Nazis) that everybody in the American political spectrum could agree on (in disapproving of them, that is), but this makes me question even that.

My 7 year-old nephew says stupid shiat too, and nobody writes a newspaper article about that.

Seeing as all christian holidays and most if not all of their stories are pulled from paganism, it makes sense.

There is vey little that is original.

Depends on which Jesus you follow. Republican Jesus is one bad ass mofo who's into BDSM and blood for the blood god. The biblical Jesus was more of a peace, love and hippie dude.

Which story is that? I have a great Harlan Ellison collection, but haven't read it in awhile. This seems vaguely familiar, but I'm drawing a blank.

The god that loves me so much that if I don't love him back properly he will let me burn for eternity? Fark that, I will stick with Loki, he sounds like someone who knows how to party.
