False Prophet Rev. Terry Jones Wants To Burn Holy Books!

There seems to be a cottage industry comparing people to Hitler, so I will let you draw the conclusions.

Rev. Terry Jones, of the Dove World Outreach center has started a campaign to promote his book, "Islam is of the Devil".  I guess you can imagine what kind of publicity stunt the "good" reverend has come up with the promote sales of his tome.  Yup, burning books!  Specifically he has declared "National Burn a Quran Day".

In an interview on CNN he strangely declared, "We have nothing against Muslims...", nothing except the holy book that is at the center of their religion!

I give Rick Sanchez credit for asking this AssHat "how he would feel if Muslims burned the Bible?"  He mumbled something about not liking it but "we live in America!".  So I guess in his ethos, it's OK to burn other peoples sacred scriptures, but not his?

This kind of inflamitory insanity is designed to make bucks for this alleged Christian and to inflame tensions between Muslims and Christians.  He is sowing the seeds of a Holy War and he knows it.  This kind of apocalyptic  thinking is what gets people into crazy wars and drives terrorists to murder.  He is no Christian or follower of Christ.  Enough of this charade, time to call out these charlatans for what they are, false prophets.

So if you wish to draw a comparison to Hitler now, go ahead.

NOTE:  Since Jones has decided to NOT burn the Qu'ran let's not give him any more publicity for his hateful church.  Also,  threatening comments will be deleted. Making threats has no place here or anywhere. 

NOM Hate Tour Continues - Priest Gives Sex Advice?

Interesting interview of a Catholic Priest during the National Organization for Marriage hate tour. Funny how a person sworn to celibacy can pontificate on sex. He tries to say that any kind of sex other than penile/vaginal lack dignity because they abuse their partners as instrumentalities of pleasure for non-procreative potential.

He is full of bad theology and even worse advice on sex...but what would you expect from someone who does not use God's gift of sexuality. Go figure.

The World of the Future! 1939

Some of you might know of my fascination with the past ideas of what today and the future would look like. Of specific fascination is the 1939 New York World's Fair. This exposition influenced much of our lives today. This wonderful archive clip is the General Motors Futurama. A prediction of what America would be like in 1960!

This was a brilliant propaganda piece that actually helped shape the current automobile age. You'll see the inception of the Interstate Highway systems in this vid. Of course I am still waiting for those floating dirigible hanger but you can't have everything. Enjoy!

And from my childhood, a glimpse of the Futurama from the 1964 World's Fair. Notice the prevalence of cars again?

Daily Show Nails Nazi Nut

Once again the Daily Show nails it. This time it is a wacko trying to sell the idea that all the Nazis were gay. Oy vey!

Bill O'Reilly Calls For End of DADT!

It must be a sign of the End Times! I actually agree with Bill O'Reilly.

On Jay Leno's show he actually came out against DADT and encouraged the President to sign an Executive Order to end the practice. Either he really has had a change of heart or he cynically figures his "ditto heads" don't watch Leno. Either way it's way past time to repeal this insipid law.

Lt. Gov. of Tennessee Thinks Islam Isn't a Religion

Yet another GOP idiot?  Maybe.  But for sure Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey is uninformed and perhaps just a plain old bigot. In a video posted on the web recently he notes that Islam is possibly not a religion, but a cult or a nationality.

That is like saying Catholicism is a nationality. Puleeze! What Ramsey is really doing is trying to stoke the fires of hatred and bigotry and use that energy to get votes or money or both. Wow! The GOP using ignorance, hate and bigotry as a tool? Standard operating procedure.

Here is the video, enjoy!

Bill Donohue Is At It Again!

Whenever the Catholic Church gets it's ass in a crack you can count on Bill Donohue of the Catholic League to rush to the defense of the church.  Though some would applaud his loyalty, this time his defense is pure unadulterated crap.

Strong words to use against someone?  But oh so true.  Donohue wrote an op-ed piece in the Washington Post recently that focused on the Catholic Church pedophile priest problem.  My problem with that is Mr. Donohue filled it with hate and outright lies.  The primes of his piece is that the problem is not with pedophilia, but with homosexuality.  He blames homosexuals for the whole child molesting thing and he uses lies to support his argument.

First he twists figures mercilessly as he states, "Alfred Kinsey was the first to identify a correlation between homosexuality and the sexual abuse of minors. In 1948, he found that 37 percent of all male homosexuals admitted to having sex with children under 17 years old." 

That is actually not what Kinsey said.  What he asserted in his study was 37 percent of all males had some overt homosexual experience to the point of orgasm, sometime between adolescence and old age.  That's a far cry from Donohue's crap.

My big beef is that the Washington Post published this piece at all.  Next they will be publishing Fred Phelps.

Tony Hayward Gets Sacked - Stays Amazingly Rich!

Big corporations are really amazing.  Take BP for example.  They rigthly sacked their CEO, Tony Hayward over his dismal handling of the oil spill crisis.  His bungled statements to the press and general lack of leadership has served him well though.  Seems in the world of corporations, you can screw up big time and they give you lots of money to go away!

He gets a pension, that's their term for it, a pension of £600,000 ($930,000 US) per year!  If only I could get fired like that!

Microsoft Unveils New Slogan. Whoop-de-friggin-do!

As with all things Microsoft, you take the good with the bad.  That goes for the latest in a series of operating systems as well as the continually lame advertising slogans the software giant foists upon the helpless public.

The latest is this:
"Be What's Next"

In the case of a phone, that would be the iPhone rather than the derivtive and lame Kin.

In the case of music downloads that would be the iTunes Store rather than Symphony.

In the case of games, that would be the Wii not the XBox.

What is it with Microsoft?  They are not what's next, they are what someone else pioneered before.  Need I tell the story of Windows?  Looks like Mac, acts like Mac, just doesn't work as good as Mac.

What's the next slogan going to be?

An Evening WIth The Love Goddess

Last night we attended the Cathedral of Hope 40th anniversary gala celebration, and it was great fun, even more so because of the visiting celestial royalty.  Judy Tenuda, aka, the Love Goddess made her appearance carried in by her customary buffed hunks.  She and her holy accordion were the main event of the evening. 

She may be a little older, but her shtick still works.  In her soaring and wavering tones she made it abundantly clear she was the font of wisdom for love and relationships, gay or straight.  She even had special advice for the "Lesbiterians" in attendance as well as just about everyone else. 

Later she performed for a smaller crowd at the "Judy Unplugged" after party on the roof of the InfoMart.  The room was more conducive to her humor and she was at her raunchy best.  If you missed it, you missed an unforgettable time.  Happy birthday, Cathedral of Hope!  My kind of church.
