Laissez Le Bon Temps Roulet! Except in Terrebonne Parish!
July 1st, 2008 under Hypocrisy, Louisiana, Racism. [ Comments: 3 ]

district-l.jpgBigoted moron and Terrebonne Parish School Board member, Rickie Pitre is leading a charge to make English the only spoken language at graduation ceremonies. Seems that Rickie took offense to Cindy Vo’s comments at Ellender High School’s Graduation. Cindy, the American-born daughter of Vietnamese immigrants, who was the valedictorian had the nerve to say, “Co len minh khong bang ai, co suon khong ai bang minh.” She then explained that the expression, roughly translated, was a command to always be your own person.

Rickie and the School Board are pissed! How dare that girl use anything but English in her speech! Come on cher!

A couple of things.
1. Hey Rickie–Why not change the name of your parish? Terrebonne means “good earth” in FRENCH! God knows we should hate the French! Remember “Freedom Fries”?

2. Hey Rickie–Didn’t your ancestors get flack over their use of French? Can’t you see how that might be a bad thing?

Rickie and his bigoted buddies can be contacted here.


Vitter and Craig to Rescue Marriage!
June 28th, 2008 under family, homosexuality, Hypocrisy, Politics, Tacky. [ Comments: 2 ]

You have got to be kidding me!

What’s next, an ethics bill from Jefferson?

Larry Craig and David Vitter — “two United States Senators implicated in extramarital sexual activity” — have named themselves as co-sponsors of S.J. Res. 43, the Marriage Protection Amendment. If passed, the bill would amend the Constitution to declare that marriage “shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman.”


Republican Racism: Where Are the Christian Protesters?
June 19th, 2008 under Christianity, ChristianWalk, Hypocrisy, Politics, Racism, Walking Like Jesus. [ Comments: 1 ]

pin.jpgWhy didn’t anyone at the Texas Republican State Convention order the removal of this racist campaign button from the convention? Weren’t there any Christians there to speak out against this obviously racist button? I’m troubled that this was dealt with after the convention. Obviously we need to get more Christians involved in Republican politics in Texas so that we can make a difference there!

The Republican Party of Texas will donate proceeds from a vendor who sold a racist campaign button at the state convention last weekend to Midwestern flood victims, a party spokesman said Wednesday.

A vendor called Republicanmarket.com sold a button that said “If Obama is president … will we still call it The White House?” The button was sold in a pavilion adjoining the convention hall in Houston.”

I’m personally sending a complaint letter to Binkley Toys for contracting to produce the SockObama monkey. It’s my Christian duty. I’m beginning to think Republicans might be racists.

Thank God there’s Rush Limbaugh. Oh wait…

Maybe we ought to follow Schroeder’s advice and send a few emails.

My friend Mark Gstohl has an article at Religion Dispatches Blog about the Southern Baptist resolution on Christmas.

That guy’s not only cool. He’s also pretty smart.


Christians Must Boycott Racist Fox News

This is it. I know that most conservative Christians are idiots. I don’t think they’re idiots because they’re Christians. I think they are idiots because they are Americans. There, I’ve said it. Call me unpatriotic or a snob if you want, but I’ve had it with stupidity.

Last week I went fishing and our guide had Jesus crap all over his boat and truck. He also used the “N” word a lot and made fun of “Retards.”

I heard yesterday on NPR that Obama met with Christian leaders and was asked about his Muslim background by one of them! Stupid. Stupid. Stupid!

Southern Baptists approved a resolution about Christmas! The resolution–“urged Southern Baptists and other Christians to “resist the march of secularism” and to seek to influence businesses and other institutions to return Christmas to “its proper place in the culture.” Was the resolution encouraging their members to focus more on Jesus and less on consumption during the season? Oh Hell no! “The statement on secularism and the use of Christmas came in response to the recent practice by some businesses, public schools and other entities of substituting secular terms for Christmas.”

What a flipping joke! Doesn’t Bill O’Sleazy do a good enough job for you? You are so right Southern Baptists! Home Depot needs to force their Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, or Atheist employees to wish everybody a Merry Christmas! That’ll bring em’ to Jesus! You self-centered jerks need to shut the heck up!

Once again, Southern Baptists are telling everybody how they should act and what they should say! What a bunch of maroons! Making folks say “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays” will help us remember the “real” meaning of Christmas. Love, Peace, Joy, Intolerance!


The Real Threat of “Gay Marriage”
May 28th, 2008 under Christianity, homosexuality, Hypocrisy, Walking Like Jesus. [ Comments: 1 ]

holybible.jpgI’ve never understood why someone who believes homosexuality is a sin must oppose same-sex marriage. I’ve also never really bought the conservative Christian line that same-sex marriage is a threat to our country. I have gay friends and they really don’t threaten me or my family or anyone else for that matter. I’m kind of shallow so I always assumed that conservative Christians oppose same-sex marriage because they either don’t want to question their own sexuality or they are simply “creeped out” by homosexuality.

Nick Street offers another reason in “It’s the Spiritual Economy, Stupid: Why the Gay Marriage Fracas isn’t About Either” and I think he’s on to something. Street argues that the battle is really about the importance of Scripture, particularly the more literal interpretation of Scripture. Of course, conservative Christians can’t really openly argue that so they have to keep that idea in the closet. Here’s a bit of Street’s argument…

Well, the impulse behind the movement’s anti-gay activism doesn’t really have much to do with marriage and sexuality. No one on the religious right has argued—or is likely to argue—that the success or failure of Jenna Bush’s marriage really hinges on whether lesbians and gay men are allowed to tie the knot on the courthouse steps in San Francisco.

The real issues are the authority of the Bible and the nature of revelation.

Recent polls show that while roughly two-thirds of Americans believe that Noah’s flood, the creation story and other biblical events are literally true, only about 40 percent of those surveyed accept the Bible as completely inerrant—a figure declining at about the rate that public acceptance of gays and lesbians is increasing.

So a lot is at stake in a political initiative with deep roots in the foundations of canonical Christianity. If religious conservatives can’t persuade a majority of Californians to heed one element in an otherwise obscure list of purity codes in Deuteronomy—and that Jesus’ preaching in the gospels isn’t really complete without Paul’s finger-wagging in Romans—the stitching that holds together the disparate parts of the Good Book will have subtly but irrevocably loosened, along with the Bible’s centuries-old grip on American public life.

Pretty interesting argument. If it’s true, it shows that conservative Christians aren’t being totally honest.


Scott McClellan’s New Book Blasts Bush
May 28th, 2008 under Books, Bush, Hypocrisy, Katrina, Politics. [ Comments: none ]

One of my favorite quotes from “What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception” :

“History appears poised to confirm what most Americans today have decided: that the decision to invade Iraq was a serious strategic blunder. No one, including me, can know with absolute certainty how the war will be viewed decades from now when we can more fully understand its impact. What I do know is that war should only be waged when necessary, and the Iraq war was not necessary.”

“The collapse of the administration’s rationales for war, which became apparent months after our invasion, should never have come as such a surprise. … In this case, the ‘liberal media’ didn’t live up to its reputation[of being biased against Bush]. If it had, the country would have been better served.”

“One of the worst disasters in our nation’s history became one of the biggest disasters in Bush’s presidency. Katrina and the botched federal response to it would largely come to define Bush’s second term,” he writes. “And the perception of this catastrophe was made worse by previous decisions President Bush had made, including, first and foremost, the failure to be open and forthright on Iraq and rushing to war with inadequate planning and preparation for its aftermath.”

Fox News Jokes about Killing Obama

Another sign Conservative Christians in America are stupid. I’m sure Jesus would find assassination funny too!


Follow Jesus, You Maroons!
May 22nd, 2008 under Baptists, Christian Crap, Christianity, ChristianWalk, FoxNews, God, Hypocrisy, Racism, Rant, Social Issues, Walking Like Jesus. [ Comments: 3 ]

Woman at the WellWarning…this is a rant. I’m really ticked so there might be a few offensive phrases. See the picture on this post? It’s Jesus with the woman at the well. She was a Samaritan woman. Jews hated Samaritans. Jesus didn’t. He saw her as a human being. God’s kind of like that. You know, loving, not a racist, etc.

I’m flippin’ sick and tired of so called Christians making negative comments about “those Mexicans.” Five words: shut up you flippin’ moron! Read your Bible. Think a bit. Would Jesus be pissed about them coming here to “our” country? I don’t think so. In fact I know he wouldn’t. He’d tell you alleged Christians that you must, Jeez I know this will be a shock, love your neighbor. OK, they’re taking our jobs and costing us lots of money for providing their children with healthcare and education (Why is it that I usually hear this from old retired farts who don’t work anyway?) Let’s just pretend that these “Mexicans” are costing us lots of money and are our enemies.

Guess what? Take a look at your dusty old Bible again! Jesus says we’re supposed to love our enemies. Holy Crap! What to do? Why don’t you shut the heck up, think for a freakin’ minute, turn off Fox News and read the Gospels. Out loud. It’s really not that complex. Do you honestly believe that Jesus would be pissed about providing heathcare for children? We’re one of the richest countries in the world. If we really are a Christian nation (which we’re not) we should be glad to help those in need and not just those who have oil under them and are in need.

Why can’t you ignorant racist bigots realize that your ancestors were probably immigrants too? Of course that really shouldn’t matter if you’re a Christian because you’re supposed to LOVE them anyway. They are children of God, whether you like it or not. Their children are human-freaking-beings created in the image of God! Love them too!

In case you forgot. The Christian’s primary citizenry is the KINGDOM OF GOD not the United States. I know that makes me sound unpatriotic, but if I’ve got to chose someone or something to be obedient to it’s going to be Jesus. Not George Bush, that Hussein Obama guy you like to trash and certainly not that foul mouthed old fart that called his wife the “c” word. If following Jesus hurts the American economy then so be it. If it means I might have to, God forbid, make sacrifices like spending more money on others and less on myself I’ll gladly do it. Jesus’ sacrifice makes anything I do seem a bit lame anyway.

Sorry to break the news to you. If you’re going to follow Jesus, you’re going to have to love those “Mexicans” just like he does. If you’d like the scripture references email me at howie (dot) luvzus (at) gmail (dot) com. I didn’t provide them here because I didn’t want to waste your time and they should be a given anyway.

I wrote this because I love those “Mexicans” and hate to hear you trash them. They’re my brothers and sisters. I also wrote this because I love you too and it pains me to see you miss out on the opportunity to demonstrate God’s love to someone in need.

Now shut up and follow Jesus, you maroons!
