Church & State

I will openly admit: I love it when a self-righteous religious fucktard screws up, and screws up BIG.

Reported on WLOS (North Carolina): A Baptist minister told 9 members of his church that, since they didn't support George W. Bush, they had to either repent and change their ways or be thrown out of the church. They left, 40 more left in protest...and while the minister, Pastor Chan Chandler, declined to be interviewed, he did say that the move was "not politically motivated". See the newscast here.

Not politically motivated? Explain the logic underlying THAT conclusion. Just another case of organized religion screwing people up. Take charge of your OWN destiny, make your OWN relationship with YOUR deity of choice, and don't let anyone tell you they know your connection with your god better than you do...and keep it and your politics separate.

    Finally got to see "Mad Max: Fury Road" (Don't judge, I don't get out much these days). As a huge fan of the Max films, I've really looked forward…

  • Trailers, Fandom, and um....Anyway...

    So, "leaked" trailers from Comic-Con for 'Suicide Squad' and 'Deadpool': Hmm. Ignoring the low-quality uploads, I still have to say that neither…

    Work day: slices of hell. Yelled at my Manager. Yelled at my District Manager. Sent someone home in anger. Good point: movers delivered my stuff…
