If you don’t see Merry Christmas in the window, no, you don’t go in that store! The Star of David used to do that trick.

This season's War-On-Christmas email is pushing a holiday ditty whose refrain goes "If you don't see Merry Christmas in the window, then you don't go in that store." Seems like it might be easier to mark those stores with a Star of David on the window, or would that be too obviously Nazi? On the other hand, it is refreshing to see even Dumbfox recognize the imperative of targeting commerce to make your point heard. So, boycotts do work? You can see the Christmas-lovers' point of course. They'd prefer that merchants exploiting the Christmas purchasing season at least be paying lip service to Christmas and not the ever-looming Godless "Holiday" eclipse, supposed. This song reminds us "it's all about the little baby Jesus" and goes on to list all the things Christmas wouldn't be without him. Of course, half the list traces back to pagan tradition, but what to Christian Holiday-goers know of that? And the latter half goes back as far as they remember, as their grandmother and her grandmother before might remember, but no more. The commercial Christmas charts its provenance to the industrial revolution, the birth of consumer goods and marketing. Santa Claus as we recognize him stepped right off Coca-cola calendars of the last mid-century. Christmas was the religious Trojan Horse to pitch the shopping holiday to reluctant hedonists. Now the same parishioners who don't have an needle's-eye chance to get to Heaven, feel like the can pay their tithes in Christmas presents. Yes, I do think it's funny that people who abhor the prospect of disruptive economic boycotts are willing to consider it at the drop of Santa's cap. Unless of course they're satisfied that making this video viral is a shot across the bow enough. I doubt their Christmas Spirit has any room for Lenten restraint. Oddly enough, one of their potential boycott targets, and mine, has hung banners in its outlets to announce they will be open for Christmas, introducing a delectable dilemma. Starbucks says Merry Christmas in the window, so it's exempt from this singing email picket, yet it disrespects Christmas by working through it. What do you do? I answer that one unequivocally. Yes, boycott Starbucks. They fund Israeli settlements in the Occupied Territories. That may be somewhat directly related to their celebrating Hanukkah not Christmas, but that's NO KIND OF REASON to boycott a business. If you want to boycott a store because it's not Christian, take it up with the Anti-Defamation League. Leave bigotry to the Zionists.

More on the Anti-Muslim, Anti-Jewish, Anti-Christian 9/11 memorial hate-fest

One of the things that's being done in many places around the nation, even in churches and synagogues, is to have the children of the congregation, many as young as two, stand up and parrot the empty words of the Pledge of Allegiance and no, that isn't photoshopped, those are real American Kids chanting words they didn't understand to a graven image.   Right after the "attack" which is avowed as The Official Story Being True, (But the officials who tell the story also said that there were WMDs in Iraq and the Wars are about "freedom"... so, where do the lies end?) children in schools across the land supposedly came up with the idea, with no coaching from their parents or teachers, to have a synchronized chanting of the Pledge. As a show of "patriotism". Kids who don't know what death is, or any of the myriad twists and turns of the lies needed to start and sustain wars... told by their teachers to do this, and to lie to the world and say it was their own idea. And if they didn't, they were "terrorists". Now, who could find any fault with that? How about maybe GOD? The Bible strictly prohibits making children swear oaths. Read the Laws of Moses before you jump down my throat about saying it. Jewish kids say an oath, Bat Mitzvah for the girls and Bar Mitzvah for the boys, when they're 13 years of age. The oath first Moses then Joshua had the people of Israel say. You see the cute little house sign that says "As for me, and MY house, we will serve the LORD"... without the rest of the stuff surrounding it like Joshua having anybody who didn't swear the mitzvah killed. Seriously, if you read the Old Testament with open eyes, it ain't going to be the same as they taught you in Sunday School. Which is where Jews have an advantage, they don't hold back and they do tell it like it's written. Before they swear the Bar/Bat Mitzvah they have to study and be tested to see if they really know what they're getting into. You can't say later that you just didn't know. The oath is that you will from that day forth ("choose, now, who you will serve...") obey every Law. So you have to KNOW every law. There's a catch to it, a huge gaping hole in it. Nobody ever kept the whole law, and swearing to do so but not doing it is a death-penalty offense. Sanhedrin after Sanhedrin have debated that point. Mostly because a lot of people in the world want to KILL a lot of other people in the world. And to feel no guilt about it. So there's a lot of noise bandied about in every religion that somehow there's an amendment, an invisible escape clause, to the "Thou shalt not kill" command. "Eye for an eye" keeps coming up. Doesn't work. If "Eye for an eye" were applied, the only people

Things to De-Celebrate this National Hate Week

Which is a smack to the back of the head to all those who told us in 1984 that the Police State setup from the BOOK of the same name couldn't possibly happen in America because it was all about Socialist Dystopia and nobody, no not ever, could set up a CAPITALIST dictatorship. God, they're stupid.   But here's what the post 9/11 "patriotism" has gotten us. Eight years of a moron for president, an evil moron but a moron. His crew of more intelligent evil people used the occasion to make it unpatriotic to question their plans to deregulate American industries. We've seen a 9/11 worth of dead Americans every single month due to denial of Health Care. We've seen pollution that al Qa'eda could only hope to inflict on any one small town, done daily and across the nation. We've seen our national surplus turned upside down, and many multiples of the amount of that surplus in debt, due to the Wars started by the aforementioned Moron in response to 9/11. The badly misnamed USA PATRIOT Act is being invoked against Julian Assange and Wikileaks in response to their telling the TRUTH about 9/11 and the aforementioned wars, the moron who started them and the morons who still follow his leadership even though it's destroyed what used to be America. Those Morons have banded together into Right Wing Terrorist Groups such as the TeaParty, Minutemen and other "patriotic" front-ends for the Ku Klux Klan. They'll be flying plenty of the Hate Flag. By Tea-Klan MORONS such as this couple who made their Wedding into a Hate-fest. Yep, that's right, they're celebrating their wedding with symbols of Starting A Racist War which killed half a million Americans in order to keep according to the 1860 census 3,950,528 Americans in perpetual bondage based on the color of their skin. To deny AMERICANS the rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness spoken of, ever so nobly, in a revered document written by a Slaveowner. So much for the "original intent", Jefferson spoke of Liberty in one paper then wrote whole books demonizing Black Americans and condemning them to slavery. You find that a lot in the "original intent" doctrine espoused by those who want to return America to an official slave nation. Emboldened by the level of pure ignorant and racist Hatred engendered by 9/11. So, De-Celebrate it by burning the Racist Flag. And, not just those of us who are of Darker Skin, or mixed "race". Every WHITE person in the world has a stake in this as well, a huge stake because it will only be by the WHITES rejecting the label the Racist PurkMeisters like the Tea-Klan want to place on All White People. They would have me and thee and she and he and we and everybody in the whole world believe that all white people are as stupid, ignorant and hate filled as they are. So I'm calling on the so-called "white race" to step up and redeem and reclaim the dignity

The shocking part about the AI PACkers… Listen up, Lamborn fans…

It's not the blatant anti-Semitism involved in wanting to set Israel up as a target for near-total destruction, it's not their arrogance in making money supplying the means, the money, weapons, propaganda, anti-social gospel of indifference, answering the question of Cain "am I my brothers keeper" with a resounding NO, warmongering on every level... setting all the preconditions for an apocalyptic global destruction, the one they make money predicting... predicting the ride of the Horsemen and grooming their horses for them at the same time... No, the really shockingly delusional part about it is their overwhelmingly conceited belief that Everybody Else on the planet would be so stupid that we wouldn't notice that. We're supposed to not notice that they're warning of destruction, and sowing the economic seeds of that destruction daily, using the monetary policies that will ensure famines, ensure that natural disasters will have a far greater human scope than would be possible otherwise. Huge concentrations of people on the edge of recurrent natural disasters, kept there for the profit of a very few. Mass indoctrination of Hate, to keep the unnatural disasters of War going. All traced back to a very tiny minority whose faith is in no God or gods but only in money. They devour the houses of widows and orphans and for a pretense make long prayers. Their bogus "support" for a Jewish state is just one facet of the evil they do in every other facet of their public and private lives. They should feel shame but obviously do not. In Genesis, God declares blessings on ALL the descendants of Abraham, Isaac AND Ishmael, Jacob AND Esau, not to mention the descendants of Abraham's cousin Lot. That gets ignored in the AIPAC "christian" rhetoric, the only blessings recognized are a direct line of Abraham-Isaac-Jacob-Judah-David. The whole of the Bible, old and new testaments, even the Apocrypha, is dedicated to showing that there is none righteous, no not one. That we can not be redeemed from ourselves by our own actions nor those of our ancestors. We don't attain salvation or blessings from our heritage. The notion of an ironclad blessing of righteousness placed on one tribe of humanity is a coin with two sides, on the darkside of it, would Herod be sainted, perhaps? Ahab? Would the man David, who in one chapter is called "A man after God's own heart" be saved, and his descendants after, by his good works, or condemned by his evil works? It's more a case of God being extremely tolerant -to the point of absolute Liberalism - toward mankind as a whole. Judah sold his own brother into slavery and committed adultery with his daughter-in-law, marrying her after he got her pregnant, but is counted blessed. These are examples of grace, not earned. Yet the blessing of grace is taken to be a license for mass murder. The admonitions against such crimes is turned around to be somehow an invitation to commit more, and to feel good about doing it. Lamborn is one of many playing

“Psychic Tip” is enough to get a No-Knock Search Warrant…WTF?

So the AP headline was "Texas farmhouse searched on Psychic Tip, no bodies found". WHAT? I'm not in the least concerned that there wasn't any evidence found, I myself can "psycho-ly" predict that particular outcome. Not one single Scientifically Empirically Verified psychic prediction of ANY of the major news-generating Historic events has ever been brought forth. Not Pearl Harbor, not the death of any political leader, not any major natural disaster, not 9/11, the whereabouts of Usama bin Laden, two space shuttle disasters, the surprise launch of Sputnik, NOTHING. Psychic phenomena is about the most documented to be least accurate form of Evidence. So what comes next? Do the cops, prosecutors, judges and other Tools of the Police State actually get to maybe Convict somebody based on some jackass who claims a Direct Link To God saying that he's convinced the defendant is guilty? I mean, a Search Warrant supposedly has stringent rules of evidence just to obtain one, It's like an actual conversation I overheard between a police officer and somebody else, the cop complaining because he wasn't allowed to shake somebody down even though he "knew" the person was in possession of contraband. Asked HOW he "knew" he said "my gut tells me, OK?" NO, Officer, NOT OK. Your gut was probably telling you it was time to take a 10-100 at Dunkin' Donuts. The Constitutional prohibitions against Irrational Hunches being used to obtain search warrants or arrest warrants are there for a reason. It leads to a situation where any cop can search, arrest or kill any person just because he says so. It's purest Lynch Law mentality, on the hoof. And this particular case was in TEXAS? WTF Revisited? Texas whose political options involve voting for somebody endorsed by the General Baptist Convention or one endorsed by the Southern Baptist Convention. Where you'd be loudly condemned to the Everlasting Fire of Hell for wearing an astrological pendant or asking a potential breeding partner "So, babe, what's your sign?" And at least one court is issuing warrants based on "Minority Report" without any of the (shaky) Scientific trappings.

Nonviolence works, but Jesus saves

How is an antiwar message advocating a metaphysical ideal any different than saying that My God is better than Yours? My pacifist colleagues have distilled their protest slogan to "Nonviolence Works" which I believe is as provable as "Jesus Saves." Neither ideology can reduce beyond the afterlife. My god says love your neighbors. So what? Mine says kill my enemies. And what's more, God forgives me, particularly what I do in His name. To assail American Christian crusaders with with the logic of moral superiority is to argue that my god can lick your god. Believe me, God America is kicking Muslim ass on that front every day. Beside which, at best you're telling someone who wants to believe 2 plus 2 equals 3 that 3 & 1/2 is close enough.

News from Imperial Rome, Crusades 2.0, and Racist Hysteria

Italy is warning the rest of Europe about Tunisian refugees and others from the wave of rebellion against the Empire in their home Vassal States, coming to Europe and taking over. Like they haven't been doing exactly that same thing to North Africa since the Punic Wars. Guess it's different when the shoe and the foot are on the other shore. They DO have some legitimate cause for concern, the last time the Empire got this big and powerful, it was taken over and some say, taken down, by a wave of religious refugees from the Middle East. They've even got a church where one of the Imperial palaces, the Vatican, once stood.

Fundamentalists might heed a Catholic, or not

But some will be swayed by people who only speak English, and that not much goodly, (bad joke and I'd have to go to a seance and ask Shakespeare if it's actually grammatically correct, which leads to==>>) but will insist that Shakespearean/Jacobite English mistranslates "Thou Shalt Not Kill" when the original Hebrew grammar translates as "Thou Shalt Not MURDER", that killing human beings on ones own initiative is Very Bad, Wicked, Naughty and (rightfully at that) considered "murder" and a crime, sin and a flaw in the basic working of the Human Soul. Whereas doing it at the command of the King (basically because somebody else told you to do it and you're too weak-minded to question his authority to demand such actions) is actually ordained by God as being righteous. Thus somebody who also doesn't speak any language other than English, and that poorly, like the fire-non-fighters from Tennessee recently made "Conservative" icons, can also insist that since the Shakespeare/King James English translated Ancient Hebrew badly, BECAUSE SOMEBODY ELSE WHO SPEAKS NEITHER jACOBITE ENGLISH NOR ANCIENT HEBREW TOLD HIM SO AND HE'S TOO WEAK MINDED TO QUESTION THAT PERSONS INTERPRETATION OF TWO LANGUAGES WHICH THAT PERSON DOES NOT SPEAK, WRITE OR ACTUALLY READ... permits him to commit Arson-by-default by refusing to extinguish a potentially fatal home fire even though he had the equipment, training and a job which gives him the actual duty to extinguish potentially fatal home fires. Also support executions and wars as being valid because Other People with government jobs said so.

Since I’ve been “insulted” by being called “man of the people”

By people who don't understand Russian. Bolshevik. Hmmm... not as bad as the French word Peasant, although there's a Russian term that mirrors that. Translates to "landsman". Only in Aristocracies, the feudal system, the "peasants' actually are property along with the land. When the Old Lord dies or is conquered by a neighboring fiefdom, the cattle, lands, and peasants owned by the Old Lord transfer to ownership by the New Lord. This from people who parade as "minutemen" and "tea party" revolutionaries but bow down and kiss the Royal Arse when commanded to do so. Then there's THIS: in the Russian Orthodox Church, the Tsar, no matter how evil and corrupt and murderous he or she is, is conferred the status of Sainthood simply by his or her birth. The Last Tsar, for instance, and his Demon Spawn Piglets (with the possible yet wildly improbable exception of Piglet Anastasia) got centuries worth of exactly_what_they_dished_out, their souls were transported directly to Heaven despite the Murders done by Tsar Nicolas Romanov. How lovely a belief, one can be spared any punishment for ones evil if one is only born in the Right Family. Like their great-great-great however many Grandma Katherine, The Great. Who died when her horse fell on her. In Bed. According to the legend, she had a "soft spot" for animals. And had a handsome young stallion, her boyfriend-du-jour, mounting her rather than the other way round. And the harness arrangement broke and her "boyfriend" fell on her. Now, I'm a fairly open-minded fellow, but the involvement of innocents in ones sins is a sticking point. And animals are innocents in these things. Even still, the hundreds of thousands of people slaughtered at her orders by her soldiers either in the Official Wars or the suppressions of the inevitable uprisings against her Satanic Reign would earn her a spot on The Old Metaphysical Down Elevator far more thoroughly than if she screwed a whole herd of horses. But, according to the Russian Orthodox Church, the Monarch gets a free pass to Heaven. Some of the people who don't know that would assume that it was "bolshevik" propaganda. Not So. That's from the Russian Orthodox Church who are still trying to get the "rightful" Tsar back on the throne of Russia, plundering the landsmen and raping their women or men or young boys and girls and/or the livestock at their Demonic Pleasure. What a wonderful representation of Christ they make.

Tennessee Fire-Non-Fighters and the Bible

The language used by the fire-non-fighter is heavily ingrained indoctrination. There's a movement with some familiar names on the letterheads, spokesfreaks not leaders, Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly, Malkin... people whose ambitions are to create an American Sha'ariah based on their own interpretation of the Word. Or more importantly how the words of the Word get translated into English. They believe that somehow King James was a Liberal. Rather than the really vicious killer he was, and point to speculations on his sexuality, which really doesn't make three quarters of a fat rats ass. The dude was a killer, that trumps any other social or moral consideration you could think of. But the contention is that the Shakespearian English, and they toss in the "Shakespeare was queer, you know" wink wink nudge nudge low-flying canard as evidence, used in the KJV 1611 was "effeminate". Oh, he's a lumberjack, he's okay. (so gay?) And they're actually Re-Writing the Bible to reflect what they think it should be. Nothing new there. Even by their own admission. Many of them cite the "Thou shalt not Kill" commandment, saying that "They" meaning, not the person speaking who is as ignorant of who "They" are as he is of the actual grammatical structure of Classical Hebrew, BUT "They" Apocryphally proved that it really should have said "Thou shalt not Murder" and thus place a distinction among the concepts of Killings not authorized by the King-du-jour and those which are authorized. AND then make the silly ass demand that WE, the "peasants", never question "Their" word on it. Does Hannity or Malkin or Beck or Jack van Impe or any single one of their Demented Demonic Disciples actually speak Classical Hebrew fluently? I've never met one who does and I've been in fundamentalist churches all my life. The same way the Lying Freaks say that They, and only They, can possibly know the Original Intent of the "Founding Fathers" who just by a coincidence aren't the ones who actually FOUGHT the revolution, but those Wealthy Landed Aristocrats who commanded it. And the sources of their Arcane-yet-Unquestionable Knowledge of the Constitution are the sources of the Religious Revisionists. Karl Rove and Newt Gingrich are also in their sorry lying ChickenHawk lot. But they're going to, just like the Fire-Non-Fighter, claim that somehow They have been given the revelation that Thou Shalt Not Kill is a grammatical error in a language none of Them even speaks. Apparently the concept has been sold to more than a few individuals. And it's Mighty Convenient if those who seek to rule over everybody else offer up their version of the Word of God as being the unquestionable basis of their so-called "Authority". God Himself hath verily told us through secret Revelation that we of course are not obligated to prove in any way, that YOU must bow down before us, and accept our Mighty Rule as surely as you would His, without question or dissent Nothing new there either. The contention against "bad" kings as opposed to

Tennessee Firefighters watch house burn down

This is what we can expect when Mayor Lyin' Hell Rivera and his cronies privatize city services like the thieving bitches are going to tell us at next Monday's budget announcement. One of the fire-non-fighters said that it's an example of "robust Christianity, rather than that sappy effeminate version of Christianity where people help each other". Well, you KNOW that got my blood pumping. First off, the guy came off as being really insecure about his own masculinity. And rather than coming out of his closet, he tries to "drag" Jesus in with him. Let's take it a notch further. Why not have the police be on a for-pay basis? Anybody who can't afford police protection, too bad so sad. Make it even better, have fully privatized "police" auxiliary groups like the Minutemen patrol, and people who DON'T pay up, well, they must have something to hide, so let's just drag them down to the court, which of course will be a pay-for-play proposition too, can't afford an attorney? Too bad, you should have planned ahead and been born rich. And if bad people dress up like the Private "police" and just break into your house and rob you at gunpoint, then the Real Minutemen Private "police" will investigate, if you pay their fee. What's that? The Bad Wicked Naughty "pretend" private police took all your money so you can't pay that fee? Awww... too bad, maybe we can get Glenn Beck or his Zombie followers to lecture you about Christianity. For a fee of course. Which brings it back to the Other Side, the nonsensical non-secular non sequitur about Jesus telling the closet case Mucho Macho "christian" to torch the place errr Watch it burn to "teach the punk a lesson about paying up". (By the way, that's Rural Tennessee, means the guy whose house they Burned Down errr... watched it burn down, was probably their cousin.) See, the anonymous Rich Man from the Lazarus parable, he wasn't in Hell for having no compassion on Lazarus, O good Heavens No! He was in Hell for being effeminate and not calling the cops and locking his dumpster to keep that bum Lazarus from eating a free meal. And the Samaritan, helping that fellow who got robbed and beaten and left laying in the ditch, he should have just gone right up to the fellow, kicked him in the face and told him it was his own fault for not hiring the local Minutemen to guard him. Then walk away laughing. And that Jesus dude, What The Hell? DYING for people who couldn't possibly pay Him? Damn, He must have been a really effeminate sissy-boy. Probably had long hair and didn't wear pants either. Or boots. Bet He had sandals or something sissy like that. The ConservaTards like Glenn TeaTard Beck and Ms Stupid Sarah are all on the side of the Redneck Assholes who watched one of their cousins get burned out of his house. From Macho Christian Values. But that's what we're going to have if

Was Jesus a Muslim (tee-hee)?

Listening to Islamic studies scholar Robert Shedinger taunt the CC audience with whether Jesus may have been a Muslim reminds me of the not-so-old joke about returning the Statue of Liberty to the French, because we're not using her anymore. At his fundamental, Jesus espoused what we are accustomed to consider were basic Christian Values, but who are American Christians to lay claim to those anymore? Islam, on the other hand, is a religion to suit the poor and oppressed, traditionally Jesus' favorites. Unless we're talking Embed Jesus. Shedinger urged "constructive dialog" between Muslims and Christians, that each might learn of our common ideals. But his lesson would seem to be entirely for the Christians. All religions share the Golden Rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you, although one might doubt Americans have given that much thought for awhile. While many would argue that American religious hypocrisy has been growing fetid over the course of a centuries of imperialist invasions and wars, the Fundamentalist Christian/Moral Majority "WWJD" has taken a turn since 9/11 to mean bomb, maim and torture. Has the American Jesus become Un-Christian, or is this the New World Order Christianity? In spite of what may be pious America's best intentions, Capitalism has relegated its moral cover to doublespeak and subterfuge, American churchgoers to dupes, and US missionaries to unwitting cohorts to the deprivations of our businessmen, soldiers and loan officers. The War on Islam isn't being waged by Christianity Proper, but by the systemic greed of Western Capitalism, secular and godless, unless you count money to be divine. Capitalism may have Xmas, but it has no claim on Jesus.

R W Lunartic fringe and the Lunar Year

One would think that people who claim to be very pro-Israel (long as them thar jewboys don't get too uppity) would at least know when the High Holy Days are. Glenn Beck, for instance, Breitbart, Fox News, all of them claiming a victory for Right Wing Lunatic Fringe politics and policies because the Israeli delegation wasn't at the U.N. on one of the days, Sukkot. These are the leaders of the same fringe groups who tried to make meat of the end of Ramadan being the day before September 11th this year, difference, their Adult Handlers noticed it so there weren't any Hysterical Shrieks about "Muslim Triumphalists dancing in streets on 9/11!!!" And MOST of them have dropped their ridiculous pointed slur that Barack must be an exclusively Muslim messianic name... in the face of some people replying to the their Jackass Statements with the notation that one of THE Judges, from the Book by the same name in the Old Testament, was named Barak (although today he would be described as an Unlawful Combatant and Terrorist) and the Israeli Defense minister is named Ehud Barak. One of their "oopsie" moments, one of several (hundred) (thousand) (hundreds of thousands) similar Oopsies. I'm thinking, here, that it's a massive failure of Private Education and Hoam Skewl and no, their Pastors don't know a thing about their own religious beliefs either. Oh, and these are the same Dangerously Inbred Cretins who call us Ignorant Morons because we don't share their vision of English Americans as "The New Jerusalem", don't call for the destruction of Israel in order to usher in the End of Days or other Semitic Anti-Semitism crap-ola. "Stand with Israel" except they want the Jewish people to be (almost) completely wiped out.

Bibi is NOT Israel, revisited.

The Israeli Knesset is debating a bill proposed by David Rotem of the extreme right Yisrael Beiteinu party that would require all Israeli citizens to swear loyalty to Israel as a “Jewish and democratic state.” This bill is targeted at increasing pressure on the twenty percent of Israelis who are Palestinian citizens while forcing the ultra Orthodox Jewish minority who reject the legitimacy of any state not based on Jewish biblical law to accept Zionism. If passed in its proposed form, citizens unwilling to take the loyalty oath would be at risk of losing citizenship I wrote an article about a year ago, I think, titled "Bibi is NOT Israel!" but the title was in Hebrew. The Modern State of Israel uses Judaism the way George Bush uses Christianity, a prop, only that and nothing more, quoth the Raving, nevermore.. and yeah, I deliberately mangled the line from Poe. Zionism is at most a sect of Judaism, so in fact are any Christian sects. In fact, when Judah split off from Israel while Solomon lay dying, it was done on a sectarian level equal to England and the Vatican. Bibi courts some reactionary extremists who are pushing him as a Jewish Pope, who would imagine? Other than the Zionist faction is more secular than sectarian... And the absence of a "Unified Judaism" doesn't seem to have wiped out Judah in the past 3500 years, so why the new Anti-Semitic actions from people claiming to represent Israel, the people, in the form of Israel the state? Bibi can no more claim to represent Judaism than the Pope could. Either the people or the faith. When I looked up the Hebrew spelling of the last post, that Bibi is not Israel, I also tried and gave up after a few moments (I had a headache, the soup was boiling over, the dog ate my homework, whatever) but I stumbled across some sectarian Messianic as in "Jewish to Christian Convert" website claiming that Netanyahu is a Messianic name. Which could be and probably is exploited in Israeli politics when dealing with people who are sectarian. This is like the term "under God" being placed into the Pledge of Allegiance to try to overcome LEGITIMATE sectarian concerns, by Christian Groups and JEWISH groups, over the Idolatrous worship of the State embodied in the rest of the pledge. These groups are, now, commonly dismissed as being "Not REAL Christians" by the same groups, like the TeaBags and RepubliKlan Party as being "Not REAL Americans". Arbitrarily because we don't share the Fascist Agenda so common in such groups. Or Plutocratic. The way of saluting the flag during the Pledge was changed at the same time, due to political expediency, from the Roman Right-hand-extended forward salute, known as the Bellamy Salute, to the Roman hand-over-heart salute, equally a salute to the power of the state, worshiped as a god. The other two are a (now) Military Salute and one used when invoking the name of any god while taking an oath, all

Muslim Mommas never cry and other heinous lies

What got me started on this offering was a TV show on at midnight, only lasted (from my perspective, because the channel got changed quickly) for about two minutes. The show was about 9/11 survivors. One of them said “That’s the difference between America and everybody else... in America when there’s great tragedy and danger people band together and help each other out”. So that means the only people on the entire surface of the planet where people actually have Human Feelings is in America, and everybody else is incapable of actual humanity. Subhumans in other words. Nothing Racist about that? No Religious bigotry either, like when a Muslim preacher orating at a funeral says the deceased is in Paradise, that’s supposedly cold-hearted brainwashing and encouraging the other members of the congregation to do suicide bombings. When a sold-out Christian Priest, military OR civilian, says that a fallen American soldier is in Heaven, that’s of course not anything to do with glorifying the war that killed the soldier or saying that the cause was just, and righteous, and ordained by God, is it? Especially when so many of these Sold-out Priests actually DO come right out and say that their version of Jihad/Crusade really IS just, righteous, ordained by God... A “Holy” War in other words. The Anti-Islam Pro-Holy War Media break out a doll allegedly given to Palestinian kids with bombs, guns, swords and other knives, with a faction-specific headscarf identifying the doll as being Hamas. and of course, like the funerary eulogy, is “brainwashing the kids to become suicide bombers” while the U.S. version thereof, pictured here, is NOT brainwashing the kids to be Fighter Pilots, Bomber Pilots, Drone Manipulators, Marines, Soldiers and Seamen who use large numbers of heavily armed comrades and high tech weaponry to Kill People using guns, bombs, knives and torture techniques applied to handcuffed prisoners... because, of course, the High-Tech weaponry makes the notion of a Suicide Bomber unnecessary. If other people who don’t have access to a Drone that can be launched from a heavily guarded air force base and controlled by some Coward Punk Uniformed Child sitting at a desk at an air base in Nebraska, use the more “hands on” approach to delivering their ordinance, then THEY are the cowardly ones, right? Teaching uniformed children to use weapons and military techniques and tactics is of course a strictly un-American concept, because we would NEVER do that, including not teaching our kids to use the same skills they would need to manipulate Drone Robot Bombs into the living space of other Human Beings with the purpose of Killing The Other Human Beings, by remote control... No, that’s the province of Other People. When an American Child is killed violently, usually the violence either accidental or deliberate occurs in America. Since by most counts the U.S. majority is White and Christian, that means that the majority of both Victims and Victors would be Christian Whites. Unless you have the silly-ass notion that American Christian

Hairball Donald Trump, Capitalist Pig Supreme…

Tried to buy off the Community Center "ground zero mosque" developers, and thus, in his mind, prove that Money is Truly God and that Everybody would bow before it. His stupid looking Rich Bitch ass was Rejected. The words of Simon Peter to Simon Magus "Thy Money perish with thee, you have no part in this"

Wall Street Journal in Anti-Mosque Rant.

Saying that moderate Islam doesn't exist, that al Qa'eda and Taliban operatives would kill anybody who expressed in the Arab Countries any non-extremist position. What a Fat Load Of Shit. Again painting Islam as a monolithic entity, no differences between nations or even PEOPLE. Let's put that in Christian Western Moderate terms yes? Since the Crusades pitted Christian against Christian more often that Christian against Muslim, and every war since then, German chaplains instructing their soldiers in Both World Wars to go into battle screaming "Gott Mit Uns" meaning, God is on OUR side, and the British Chaplains same way instructing their Cannon Fodder to scream "God and King!" as they marched in an orderly fashion through the portals of Hell... There must not be any such thing as a Moderate Christian because the Radicals, like for instance Michelle Malkin, and Sarah Palin, and Glenn Beck, would have us all killed if we expressed any form of moderation. Although that IS the ultimate logical end of their truly screwed up mindset. There's an internet rule that nobody is supposed to be compared to the Nazi regime no matter how much their plans for a New World Regime goose-steps right along with the Nazi philosophy. That's a huge benefit for Sarah and Glenn and Michelle and Pam Geller and similar Nazi-think-alikes. Do they consider the import of their making war against ANY religious belief? Especially in the name of what many other churches would consider Fringe Elements in for instance Sarah Palin's AOG church or Glenn Beck's LDS church, or Hannity's Catholic Church. The reason they're writing Slave Owner Thomas Jefferson as being not really a Founding Father is because he actually wrote a treatise on Separation of Church and State. Something they deny was the Holy and Unquestionable "original intent" of the Holy, Saintly and of Course Unanimously Christian (even though the first four presidents and Benjamin Franklin, Paul Revere and Samuel Adams were Deists, not Christian) They're writing off Jefferson not because of his slaves, a position of which they approve, National Burn the Confederate Flag Day 9/12 but because of his position on Religious Freedom implicitly and explicitly being dependent on No National Religion. He lived in Virginia, which before and even after the Revolution exchanged shots with the Catholic contingent in Maryland. Not a coincidence, but the very names Virginia and Maryland reflect the ongoing war in England at the time over Catholic-versus-Protestant. Neither name has anything to do with the Virgin Mary. It's Mary Stewart, Catholic, and Elizabeth Tudor the Virgin Queen of England who never married and officially never had sex, Their bloody little Christian-on-Christian Crime Spree was just one corner of a Vast anti-Christian Christian Crusade which still goes on. Both Virginia and Maryland not only each banned the other's Major Denomination but also Jews, Quakers and Native American religions. Thomas Jefferson opposed that. If the Muslim Countries had even HALF that kind of track record of Militancy there would be probably only two Muslim fellows left in the entire world, playing

Twin Towers “christian mecca” according to Idolatrous TeaTards

I'd been hearing that for the past (few) years from preachers, one of my pastors, gone almost thirty years now called them "Hellevangelists" but they've been saying that the Twin Towers were attacked because they were a religious symbol of Christian America. False. They were a trade exposition, a massive mall where you could stop at the International equivalent of Yankee Candle and buy an entire nations economic output, then stroll over to Starbucks and buy Ethiopian Coffee... ALL of it. The "Moneychangers in the Temple" story leaps to mind. Only instead of the Temple being turned into a marketplace and den of thieves, the Den of Thieves has been posthumously turned into The Temple. But what are they worshiping in the Temple of Money? Newt Gingrich made minor headlines declaring that the Towers were America's Christian Mecca. His preachers convinced him, I guess. I guess he'll also be happy to know that they've been given the Divine Anointing of Prophecy to say where the Million Pounds Of Iraqi Nerve Gas are Hidden and of course where and how to find Osama bin Hidin' They don't, however, play up their differences in where exactly those locations are. One faction says that the WMDs are in Syria. Another holds that they're hidden in a secret vault built under the middle of the Euphrates River, and yet another that they're in a similar secret vault under the Tigris. Sarah Palin said she had been given a divine word as to where they, and Osama, are hidden, but she'd only reveal it IF the McCain Failin' ticket won the election. Yet, saying she knows the secrets to win the war but will only reveal them if SHE is in power, that's supposed to be "patriotism". And then says she never claimed to be anointed by God to lead us. Newt Gingrich is so confused that he probably believes each version of those stories, but not the versions that say bin Laden hasn't been seen in 8 years, the U.S. Government used somebody else's picture and claimed it was a computer generated Age Progression and the "Terrorist Training Camps" they STILL show in their Hate-speech Videos (like the "Obsession" video they mailed out in a FAILED attempt to keep their Hate-speech Geezer/Bimbo ticket from taking such a Texas-sized Ass Whuppin') you know the ones, showing armed "Ay-rabs" running obstacle courses, doing monkey-bar exercises, firing machine guns at a well-established-and-suspiciously-American-looking-firing-range? Yeah. The U.S. and British and French and NATO armies have been crawling over Afghanistan like an infestation of roaches and termites for EIGHT YEARS and haven't come up with a location of those camps. But Newt will believe the pictures of the Armed Ay-rabs doing exercises in permanently placed gymnastics equipment and firing ranges even though they've never been seen outside of the "al Qa'eda" training and recruitment films. How much would you like to bet that those videos were taken at the SOA on Ft Benning, Georgia, of Taliban and other Muhajideen troops being trained for battle against the

Missionaries say they don’t proselytize

No, and that's not why the Christian International Aid Mission was banished from Afghanistan, and why the US invasion reinstated it. Ask its volunteers why they don't exert their humanitarian impulses for non-religious operations, then you'll be getting past these pleas of feigned victimization. Missionary-tourism brochures extol bringing your faith "through the witness of humanitarian aid." We're informed the missionaries killed in Afghanistan were bringing toothbrushes to youngsters who'd never seen toothbrushes before. Having floated that sparkling meme, the media would have us ignore the preponderance of photographs of smiling Afghan children, sporting cleaner smiles than the average American child. Not having "tooth brushes" does not mean their culture has subsisted without dental care. Perhaps the missionaries should like to impress us that they are bringing Velcro shoe-fasteners to children who know only shoe laces. Reading about American missionaries on the receiving end of Islamic wrath, I found this quote by 23-year-old Allen Nunnally, caught up in the Ugandan bombing that targeted western missionaries assembled to watch the World Cup. The explosions killed a missionary from Delaware and wounded others from Pennsylvania. Even among United Methodists there are denominational loyalties. "There was blood everywhere. There was blood on us," Nunnally told The Birmingham News, but none of the Alabamans were hurt. "At first we didn't know if it was ours. But we were literally untouched. We are so blessed and so in awe of God's protection of us."

Jealousy, envy, and the “natural superiority of Western Civilization”

First we need to define a few basic terms. Jealousy and Envy are often used interchangeably. They are not interchangeable. Jealousy is the notion that somebody else wants what you have, whether it's based in truth or in sick fear. Envy is the desire to possess something somebody else has. In America, most of the resolved homicides fall under those two motives, to the point that when a person is shot in his/her home, her/his spouse or lover is almost never immediately dismissed as a suspect. Envy takes the form of Avarice, Envy and Avarice are described theologically in the Seven Deadly Sins. Avarice leads to the taking of those things of which one is Envious. When that is done at gunpoint, it's called Robbery, and if one crosses the line between Armed Robbery and actually pulling the trigger, it's Capital Murder. What level of money would you wager that those charged with murder in the commission of a robbery are far more likely than those charged with murder of a "cheating" lover or spouse, to receive a Death Penalty or Life w/o Parole? Now, the Non-Western civilizations are accused of promoting Terrorism either through Jealousy or Envy of our "superiority"... but are we superior? One of the things that gets thrown around is the notion of Honor Killing. What, specifically, would be the biggest difference between killing your mate over alleged or actual adultery, and on the other hand, killing your mate over alleged or actual adultery? If you don't go all the way, don't kill, and merely beat your mate into a very dangerous medical condition in a "ritual" manner or if you do it in a non-ritual manner? Where is the difference? If a court system in one civilization condones by default, through lack of actual protections for the battered spouse, or a wink-wink nudge-nudge say-no-more Patriarchal lesser punishment for the Killer Spouse, How is it substantially different in a Religious Zealot society, like America, or another Religious Zealot society like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan? Is the murdered or battered wife of a Christian in a Christian society more or less, better or worse, than the same scenario in another culture or faith? Mind you, the apologists for bombing the living Hell out of other countries often avoid using the Religious angle, they say instead the "christian oriented" Superior Culture of America v. the "muslim dominated savage infidels" in the Rest of the World. Much like the racist notion that one's RACE isn't the primary divider, it's the White Anglo Saxon Protestant CULTURE and Heritage that's superior to the just-by-a-coincidence Non-White, Non-English-nor-Pretestant cultures they're ummm... not necessarily putting down as Inferior, mind you, more like "The White Anglo Saxon CULTURE is ever so much better, you understand, we don't think you're necessarily not as good as us, we're just Better Than You." A slight warning here, when you go around saying you're that much better than others that you get to run their lives or oppress, repress and suppress them if they don't

Silly Palin praises fallen Medal of Honor marine, but fails to note a couple things

One is that the actions he was taking, along with his comrades, when he won the medal, were War Crimes. The use of Military Force to compel people to obey his Terrorist Government. Civilian People. Making War against CIVILIANS. The other thing Mrs Palin neglected to mention is that neither she nor her Accomplices in the Bush and now Obama administration, and their Oil Company puppetmasters, gave two shits more about the life of the Marine or any of his 6000+ fellow soldiers who were slaughtered in the act of their commissions of War Crimes, than she or her Accomplices care about the Civilians who were either enslaved or Murdered at their command. She makes money from every soldier who dies, and every one of their victims who dies or is imprisoned as well. If her OWN son gets his stupid head blown off, she'll make money from that as well, AND use his death to make herself "look good". Typical Warmongering Money-worshipper. The Dollar Bill is their god. They even call it "The Almighty". It only makes it that much more blasphemous when they go to church and pretend that the atrocities they commit are done for Jesus or any other name of Jehovah.

Update: Person who shot Pentagoons (allegedly) Dead

AFTER it was reported that none of the three, either the PIGS or the shooter, suffered life threatening injuries. They're probably hustling him off to a USMC or USAF or CIA Torture Center, where the Torture Freak PERVERTS can have their sick sadistic way with him indefinitely and without him ever having Habeus Corpus, a trial, anything like that. The Sickest part of that is some of our Local Right Wing "Back the Badge" piglovers are going to say "so what? Anybody who rebels against the Empire DESERVES to be tortured!" They'll probably wrap it with Bible quotations so they can go to church Sunday and pretend to be Godly, too. Too bad the Pentagon PIGS didn't die. They'd be in HELL where they belong. I can easily see how somebody who has "enjoyed the hospitality" of the Police State Goon Squads would want to bust a cap through one of their Snouts. Something about being beaten and tasered while handcuffed could bring out that reaction in the most saintly of us. Some of the sanctimonious Hypocrites will criticize me even mentioning that. "Give place, for we are holier than thou". Then the Smug "christian" bastards will turn their Pig Minions loose to commit further Hate Crimes, all without any kind of actual judicial review. The Pig Chaplains and the Army Chaplains will be the worst of the lot, they sell not only their own souls to the god of War in the name of "serving" the God who made us all, but the souls over whom the Antichrist Army gives them leadership. It's why I don't attend Church. Because I know that the Churches in this town or any other will worship the Pigs as though they were angels from heaven instead of, as they actually are, Demons in human form. The worst part of it would be after the service, when some PIG would want to shake my hand and pretend that he considers himself to be my Brother In Christ... when any other hour of the week he would cheerfully beat me down while I'm handcuffed. (I speak from experience here) and every Pious Hypocrite from the Pastor on down would back him up on it. I'll not match their hypocrisy with hypocrisy on my part. I'll not pretend to believe that they have any kind of Christian love or brotherhood about them. They devour the houses of widows and orphans, and for a pretense make long prayers. (and want to shake your hand and pretend they love you as a brother)

Christian on Christian Crime Spree, ongoing…

The nationalities of those identified as the hijackers on 9/11... 15 Saudis, 2 UAE, one Lebanese and one Egyptian, all of them U.S. allies in the wars against Iraq and Afghanistan. U.S. and Allied Casualties on D-Day, D-Day, 2499 Verified American dead, 10,000 ALLIED soldiers. Fox (Ministry of Propaganda) puts total at 4000 and as high as 9000. Killed by the "Christian" cultures of Italy and Germany. That doesnt count the French Civilians killed by actions of both sides, nor the Christian Italians and Germans killed by the Christian British, French, Canadian, U.S., Polish, Dutch, Norwegian, Danish, Belgian, just to name the major players. None of the 9/11 hijackers were either Iraqi or Afghan. Saying that a coalition of Saudis attacking the U.S. justifies attacking two countries that Are Not Saudi Arabia would be like saying D-Day justifies an attack on Mexico. Or England. Yet the Right Wing BabyKillers still play the 9/11 card and expect us to eat it up and ask for seconds. Save room for dessert, because it's really sweet. The vast majority of wars in which Christianity as a State Religion was a factor, were wars against Other Christian Nations or Christian subjects of the Same Nation. That includes the infamous Crusades. Our Favorite Mercenaries, admired by Blackwater/Xe as being the epitome of Christian Warriors, Les Chevaliers Templars, Indicted by their Fellow Christians from the Catholic Church for murdering and kidnapping Other Crusaders and that notation was only made because they ran afoul of the French king and his Pet Pope. Richard Couer d'Leon, the "Black Knight" from Ivanhoe and Robin Hood legend, King by right of conquest of England (though he spoke no English) kidnapped twice and killed once by his Fellow Crusaders. And that's just the high-profile case. Seems the Christian Nobility were neither. Christian.. Noble... not a chance. After LOSING their very fat collective Arse to the Turks and Arabs they turned their focus more inward, and just started slaughtering (mostly) Christian subjects in their own kingdoms and those of the neighboring kings. By the logic implied by the 9/11 chanting Murderers, or at least inferred by me, the Christian Blood shed by Christian Warriors over the past 20 centuries means only one thing... That Christianity should enter into a Jihad to wipe ourselves out as an embarrassment to the name of God. Actually, we already do.

Jesus Springs rejects Christian values!

COLORADO SPRINGS- It's official! Colorado Springs City Council last night renounced our city's long-reputed (and disputed) Christian Values. In yesterday's session, an ordinance was approved to prohibit the homeless from seeking refuge on public land. Some might see this is a step forward for the pious headquarters of America's military religious empire, a self-suicide bomb to its pseudo-spiritual center. The council on Tuesday listened to hours of public input, predominantly against adopting the ordinance for a panoply of reasons. The speakers thanked the councilors for their patience. More than a couple reminded them of Jesus' words, what you do for the least of my brethren, etc. The nefarious Doug Bruce weighed in against the ordinance, not out of sympathy for the "bums" but because he thought the legalese too vague. Many speakers for the homeless agencies asked the city for more time, to delay a decision for further study. They sensed perhaps that passage of the ordinance was eminent, but ultimately gave the council its cue. Between doing nothing and doing something, eight out of the nine councilors expressed that they had to do something, which meant the ban. Police Chief Meyers had presented no other options for consideration. In his presentation the day before, the alternatives listed were "none." And whether they intended it or not, a number of local advocacy groups put their name to the chief's report. He made clear that not all of the organizations favored the camping prohibition, but more cleverly, he summarized their input as having concluded their were no other options. Included as hapless "signatories" were the PPJPC and the local ACLU. I'm not sure how several meetings about the homeless issue, led by the PPJPC, could have yielded no other options but a ban, but that was how the police chief summarized it. The only refutations offered were testimonials to the potential efficacy of third party faith-based agencies to help the homeless, and pleas for more time. There was little discussion about what else the city might do. Of course there is an important alternative the city can consider. More services. If the homeless present a health, sanitation, security and humanitarian problem, resolve it with better services. I was making the point earlier about private and public property. Public land is the public's private property. The city has just as much responsibility to provide services to the public lands and it does to the private. More so, actually. What the city has done in this case is withhold sufficient services and blamed the problem on the homeless. Is there a mess? Clean it. Is there lawlessness, police it? A fire risk? Monitor it. People living in need? Give. The city council members assumed to help the poor with this ban, intent to lift them from their squalor. How patronizing. Imagine if the city was to withhold services from private property. Imagine if private homes lo longer received sewer and water, garbage pickup and police oversight. Our residential areas would quickly be swallowed by tremendous squalor. Imagine telling private property
