Ooooookay

CNN has been damn entertaining lately.

Alamo claims to be unique among Christian preachers because he was born a Jew and had a “supernatural experience” through which he became a born-again Christian.

“I am a completed Jew,” he said, though he added that he had never believed in Judaism.

Alamo’s anti-Catholic bias is evident as he speaks. He claims the White House is in league with the Vatican, which he says also controls the United Nations.

He said being a Jew gives him special insight.

“We wrote the Bible. I don’t want these stinking gentiles in Rome telling me what it says. They don’t know,” he said.

A completed Jew? Funny, I don’t feel incomplete.

The Morons Are Out Again

Well, the Michael (Weiner) Savage thing is now the rage. Per his own mouth…

Now, the illness du jour is autism. You know what autism is? I’ll tell you what autism is. In 99 percent of the cases, it’s a brat who hasn’t been told to cut the act out. That’s what autism is. What do you mean they scream and they’re silent? They don’t have a father around to tell them, “Don’t act like a moron. You’ll get nowhere in life. Stop acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man. Don’t sit there crying and screaming, idiot.”

Insane, my ass!

From CNN.com

Attorney Rudolf Mayer said he believed 73-year-old Josef Fritzl had a mental disorder, The Associated Press reported. Mayer said someone who was mentally ill *“didn’t choose” to do what police allege he did.

The hell he didn’t choose. The article goes on to include more from the attorney about how he couldn’t believe someone could do this without having a mental disorder. While that may be true, insanity is a much different diagnosis, so to speak, that insinuates that one is oblivious to what’s going on around him with regard to the crime. He clearly knew what he was doing when he sent his daughter to the hospital. That was all worked out to the minuscule details. Someone who is insane would not do that. Thus, I really hope that the lawyer realizes that and adjusts his plea accordingly.

People will send this ass money!

I’m just appalled by this man asking for help from the general public. I know I should let the justice system do its job, but being in the field of psychology, it doesn’t take a pro to tell that something doesn’t fit. He is NOT acting like someone who lost his wife, especially to another man and especially because his behavior was stalk like. Good God, this pisses me off. Here we are a few thousand dollars in the hole with Ari’s school and this man will likely get several more thousand dollars than we need for something not nearly as important. There are so many more worthy things for which to give your money. So many! I implore you people who are even considering this to give money to the Darfur cause, curing cancer, autism research, march of dimes…ANYTHING BUT GIVING THIS MAN ONE DIME!!!

In My Own Back Yard

This whole thing with Jessie Davis is happening right here in Ohio about 130 miles from me.

When I first saw it on CNN, I admit that I didn’t pay that much attention. Then Joe asked if I had been following the story and told me some of the details. The details include what her two-year-old son has been saying without prompting. The most chilling of those statements is “Mommy’s in the carpet.” I can’t tell you how much my stomach sank after hearing that.

Bill Maher 05-18-07

I think this was one of the best shows he ever had. I found myself laughing a lot, but really resonating with the material. I absolutely adored Russell Simmons. My God, what an amazing man. I think I’m going to include him the next time someone sends me a meme with the question, “If you could pick anyone living or dead to have lunch with, who would it be?” Anyway, you have love YouTube. I found the entirety of the program on Friday in 6 parts. So, you can see it all here. (Click Read up above to see more.) Read more

WWJD?

According to Eric Rudolf

Jesus would condone “militant action in defense of the innocent.”

There’s a lovely little piece on him on CNN today and how he is taunting victims from prison. He is apparently sending letters/essays to a friend who posts them on the Internet. It seems he doesn’t actually use their names, but those who know the details know exactly who he’s writing about. Here is an example of something he wrote about a nurse that he injured…

Rudolph recalls how Emily Lyons, in court, described the pain of her injuries and made an obscene gesture at Rudolph as she showed off a finger mangled by the blast. Rudolph writes:

“It was a great speech and one that the denizens of freedom should be proud to enshrine in a museum somewhere. Perhaps they could put it next to MLKs `I Have a Dream.’ They could call it `I Have a Middle Finger.”‘

I would say that this was a shocking display of mockery for someone who claims to be a Christian if it weren’t a current trend. Honestly, these people don’t surprise me anymore…such that I automatically expect every Christian to have a hidden agenda, or at the very least some level of hatred for those who don’t believe exactly as they do. I really can’t help it. It’s like crying wolf. You have a bunch of people who espouse the ideals of Jesus Christ yet couldn’t live in his path to save their own lives. Perhaps that’s why they give themselves up for others so often. The idea that those who can’t do, teach.

Anyway, the point I’m getting to is that this guy couldn’t get further away from the grace of God if he crucified a baby himself.

Two Boobs in the Morning

Well, a billboard has a couple of Idaho moms in a tizzy today. Apparently, a Bob & Tom advertisement went a little too far. The 7-year-old daughter of one of the moms reportedly said,

Mom. That’s gross. That’s immodest.

Um, okay. I don’t really know any 7-year-olds that would use the word ‘immodest’, but perhaps things are a bit different in Idaho. Furthermore, I don’t think the billboard is near as gross as pastors getting it on with their congregants. Those are the type of things that are popping up in these tightly wound communities. No, gross just isn’t a word I would use for the ad. Does anyone remember The Dukes of Hazzard television show? Do you think Daisy was gross? Immodest, maybe. Definitely NOT gross. Definitely on prime time television too…especially in the mom’s old days.

Are you ready to see the billboard they are calling, “Public profanity?”
