Membership has its… Downside

When reading an article like this one, I’m reminded of the timeless words of Groucho Marx who famously wrote:

“Please accept my resignation. I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member”.

Or, perhaps more poignantly, Gandhi’s words say it better:

“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

The problem wasn’t ever the Republican party, it’s the Republicans; it’s the NRA, it’s the radical right, and it’s the crusaders against science and logic.

If history has taught us anything, I would think it is that an organization is only as “good” as its membership.

Fact > Fiction

Holy bat-shit, Batman!  When I first saw this video on Google+ I thought it was a feeble attempt at someone editing the audio to make a funny point.

Then I realized that this video is UNEDITED.  That’s actually Rick Perry, actually saying those things.

I guess the gloves are off, and we’re on to the next chapter of crazy.

I found Jesus

I found your Jesus, or at least the guy claiming to be him…  And he’s a completely insane pot-smoking college student currently on trial for an assassination attempt on the President of the United States.

Another Christian fundamentalist causing pain and suffering.  We’ll just never get past this, will we?

Here’s the news article.

Rapture = profit

Seriously, I will hate myself forever for not thinking this one up.  Quite possibly the best business idea in the history of the world.

“You’ve committed your life to Jesus. You know you’re saved.  But when the Rapture comes what’s to become of your loving pets who are left behind?   Eternal Earth-Bound Pets takes that burden off your mind.”

You guys should really charge a lot more than $110.  Anyone who’s had a look at Vatican city knows how much Christians are willing to spend.
