Orgasm for Jesus?

As a gay man you would think I might be clueless when it came to female orgasms, but I can tell the big "O" when I see it.  This faith healing is nothing more than a hypnotic suggestion for an orgasm and downright strange.  I am about as pro-sex as anyone, but getting fingered by Jesus is just creepy.

The Real Cost of Nuclear Power - Chernobyl Photos

I ran across Paul Fusco's portfolio online. He is a wonderful photographer who documented the after effects of the Chernobyl disaster and these photos are a tour of the horror radiation can cause. For anyone who believes the benefits of nuclear power outweigh these life destroying mutations and disabilities, think again. The people in Paul's pictures did nothing moe than happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I warn you that these pictures are at times unbelievable, but you need to see them. With Fukushima fresh in our memories, we need to take all the money funneled into nuclear power and divert it to wind and solar and other sustainable fuels. End of sermon.

Condoms = Satan

A really twisted message about condoms and preventing STDs from the folks who brought you abstinence only sex education. No wonder so many fundamentalist kids get knocked up!

Glenn Beck Leaves TV - Maybe It Is The End Times?

It's official, Glenn Beck is out of here. As his ratings skid and his advertisers jump ship, Beck is left looking more like a nut-job and less like a successful TV personality. Fox News apparently even sees this through its ideologically rose colored glasses. The official word is ..."Glenn intends to transition off of his daily program." In real English that means, "spending more time with his family".

Personally I will miss Glenn if only for the spot-on impressions done by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.

James Inhofe - Supports Dictator in Ivory Coast - Really!

In a speech on the House floor Rep. Jim Inhofe Republican of Oklahoma, actually defends the brutal dictatorship of Laurent Gbagbo in Ivory Coast.  Gbagbo is a man who lost the election yet refuses to relinquish power and is accused of heinous war crimes. He is being pinned down by the UN peace-keepers and most likely will be forced from office and surrender, yet Inhofe sees him as a "good guy"? Amazing, even for a Republican!

Free Speech vs. Rev. Terry Jones

What a triumph for free speech!  Our courts defend the rights of corporations to behave as “persons” in their spending orgy to finance political candidates, Fred Phelps and his cult can protest at funerals of anyone because “God hates America”, and trailer park pastor Terry Jones can burn a Koran and insight murder in Afghanistan.  What a wonderful gift our founding fathers gave us that allows the current state of affairs!

Well I am a big advocate of free speech, but that extends only so far.  Consider the man who yells “fire” in a crowded theater.  That is not protected speech, it is just plain dangerous and potentially lethal.  So why is it any different from the trailer park prophet whose actions have inflamed the masses in Afghanistan and have been cited as the cause of the killings of now upwards of 20 people including American soldiers?

For the life of me I don’t know, but I do know that he needs to sit down and shut up.  Jones latest despicable publicity stunt is putting the Prophet Muhammad “on trial”. Never mind what kind of court and who will be the judge, it’s just plain egregious for him to continue to try to gain publicity at the expense of other people’s lives.  Jones may be a bigot and a hick, but he is not an idiot.  He knows full well what any more of his hi-jinks will cause and he relishes it. 

Driven by what I imagine is some kind of twisted “end times” scenario, I suspect Pastor Jones wants to hasten the apocalypse in any way he can.  After all it eventually leads to the reign of Jesus, right?  So I guess in his sick mind the ends justify the means, and so what if a few dozen, or hundred or thousand people get slaughtered because of his stunts?  I suspect he would say something to the effect of “kill them all and let God sort them out.”

Meanwhile the press is whipping the whole thing up into an even bigger media event.  Jones, not to waste the momentum is heading to Dearborn, MI, home to the one of the largest concentrations of  Muslim citizens.  He plans to stage a protest at a huge mosque there and doubtless will cause a stir.  That is his intent, I suspect, to get people hurt in an attempt to prove that Muslims are dangerous people.

Sadly, when the American’s who have been killed in Afghanistan over Rev. Jones stunt return home, their funerals will undoubtedly be picketed by the Phelps clan and the Westboro Baptist Church!  Makes you proud we live in such a free country, don’t it?
