Helping The Poor Is A Sin
"One of the local women who got excommunicated said on TV that it was like a cult. Another man who got excommunicated said that the rest of the congregation stood up and applauded as the Democrats were told to leave."I been saying for the last several days, this shit is not about religion. It's about a narrow-mined world view. So basically, if you support the poor and less fortunate, if your against the war and your against the death penalty, if you don't support tax cuts for the rich, and if you treat others as you'd want to be treated, your an evil sinner who must either repent for your wicked ways or leave the church. Is this what Jesus would do? Turn away anyone who is against war, and wants to help the poor? No. That's why I said, this shit has NOTHING to do with religion.

Bush Lied. Thousands Died. "Liberal" Media Doesn't Care.
The top-level government memo marked "SECRET AND STRICTLY PERSONAL," dated eight months before Bush sent us into Iraq, following a closed meeting with the President, reads, "Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam through military action justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."[...]OK, so we were right. The pro-war crowd was wrong. Nothing new here. We knew he wanted to go to war all along. We knew the war talk was started to give the Republicans an issue in the 2002 election. We knew he lied about WMDs, and Iraqs links to terrorism. A memo confirming the obvious doesn't really change that much for me, and it probably won't change much for the right wingers who will just close their eyes and scream "lalalalalala" whenever they hear word of this story. Not that they will hear very much of it, since our "liberal" media doesn't see a Republican president lying to the nation to start a war as a newsworthy story.
The memo, uncovered this week by the Times, goes on to describe an elaborate plan by George Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair to hoodwink the planet into supporting an attack on Iraq knowing full well the evidence for war was a phony.[...]
Here's more. "Bush had made up his mind to take military action. But the case was thin. Saddam was not threatening his neighbors, and his WMD capability was less than that of Libya, North Korea or Iran."[...]
Read on: The invasion build-up was then set, says the memo, "beginning 30 days before the US Congressional elections."[...]
Now sharp readers may note they didn't see this memo, in fact, printed in the New York Times. It wasn't. Rather, it was splashed across the front pages of the Times of LONDON on Monday.[...]
My colleagues in the UK press have skewered Blair, digging out more incriminating memos, challenging the official government factoids and fibs. But in the US press …nada, bubkes, zilch. Bush fixed the facts and somehow that's a story for "over there."
The Republicans impeached Bill Clinton over his cigar and Monica's affections. And the US media could print nothing else.
Now, we have the stone, cold evidence of bending intelligence to sell us on death by the thousands, and neither a Republican Congress nor what is laughably called US journalism thought it worth a second look.[...]
Gay: The New Black
NEW YORK - To the dismay of gay-rights activists, the Food and Drug Administration is about to implement new rules recommending that any man who has engaged in homosexual sex in the previous five years be barred from serving as an anonymous sperm donor.Meanwhile in Britain
The FDA has rejected calls to scrap the provision, insisting that gay men collectively pose a higher-than-average risk of carrying the AIDS virus. Critics accuse the FDA of stigmatizing all gay men rather than adopting a screening process that focuses on high-risk sexual behavior by any would-be donor, gay or straight.
“Under these rules, a heterosexual man who had unprotected sex with HIV-positive prostitutes would be OK as a donor one year later, but a gay man in a monogamous, safe-sex relationship is not OK unless he’s been celibate for five years,” said Leland Traiman, director of a clinic in Alameda, Calif.
Traditionally, Fanshawe is right. The Tory record on gay issues has been poor. Not only did a Conservative government implement Section 28 - the law that prohibited the "promotion" of homosexuality in schools, but also fought efforts to repeal it.Sigh.
Today's Conservatives, however, are making greater efforts at inclusiveness. In addition to Bole's candidacy, Conservatives are also running Nick Herbert in Arundel and Ashley Crossley in Falmouth and Camborne. In 2002, gay Tories were given "official" recognition as a special group affiliated with the party. And the issue of gays is completely absent from the election debate this year.
It's sad to see as the entire planet moves forward, a small minority of racists and bigots are effectively pullling America back to a time that never actually existed. Next time you vote Republican, remember, these our the people that will own you Rep./Senator/President:
The Dobson crowd may not be as crash to have their children preach their hate, but their message is not that different. They hate gays, they hate sex, they hate today's America. They preech in the name of god, though they really don't care what god says, they just use that as an excuse to further their insane world view.

Bush Admin: Condoms Bad. Aids Good.
Brazil yesterday became the first country to take a public stand against the Bush administration's massive Aids programme which is seen by many as seeking increasingly to press its anti-abortion, pro-abstinence sexual agenda on poorer countries.[...]
The demand from the US administration, heavily influenced by the religious right, follows what is known as the "global gag" - a ban on US government funds to any foreign-based organisation which has links to abortion. This has resulted in the removal of millions of dollars of funding from family planning clinics worldwide.
Yesterday Pedro Chequer, the director of Brazil's HIV/Aids programme, said the government had managed to resist US pressure during negotiations on the Aids funding to focus on promoting abstinence and fidelity rather than condoms - another ideological battle being waged by the religious right.
Like I said earlier, when you vote for Republicans, your electing politicians who will spend their term whoring themselves out to the religiously insane. Actually, even using the word religious to describe them is kind of a compliment. They're really not religious. They have a set view of morality and world view that they want to impose on everyone else (though often times, not themselves.) They may use a certain passage of the bible to justify their world view, though if they actually followed Jesus as they claim, they would be demanding Bush help the poor, instead of monitoring people's sex lives. There are thousands of lines in the bible about helping the poor, though there's no demand for a war on poverty. Instead they try to stop poor from having sex, and put them in prison if they're holding a plant.
"Iraq War Was A Mistake" -America
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A majority of Americans do not think it was worth going to war in Iraq with support at the lowest level since the United States launched the invasion in 2003, according to a CNN/USAToday/Gallup poll released on Tuesday.
Fifty-seven percent of those polled said it was not worth going to war compared to 41 percent who thought it was. In a February poll, 48 percent said the war was worth it and half said it was not.[...]
Asked how things are going for the United States in Iraq, 56 percent said "badly," up from 45 percent in March. Forty-two percent said things were going "well," down from 52 percent in March.[...]
Asked whether the United States made a mistake in sending troops to Iraq, the respondents were nearly divided with 49 percent saying it was mistake and 48 percent saying it was not. On that question, the margin of error was plus or minus three percentage points.
Jeb Bush Supports Rapists
So the Florida courts have decided that Jeb Bush can't force a pregnant thirteen-year-old girl to carry the child to term. Note that, under Florida law, thirteen is well below the age of consent, making her legally the victim of rape.So if Jeb runs for president I guess he'll base his run on his support in the brain-dead vegetable and rapist communities.
The Governor's insistence that rapists receive the full reproductive advantage of their crimes isn't limited to statutory rape. Last year, Jeb asked the courts to appoint a guardian for the fetus of a developmentally-disabled woman (with an estimated mental age of 1 year) who had been raped in a group home.

When you vote for Republicans
The First Lady may have stolen the show with her surprise comedy routine at the 91st White House Correspondents' Association Dinner, but not everyone appreciated her jokes and one-liners poking fun at President Bush. At least one organization of conservative Christians quickly lashed out at Mrs. Bush's performance, warning that her remarks at the President's expense were a public refutation of the Biblical command that wives should respect their husbands.Emphasis mine. I found the last bit particularly amusing, the author of the blog then links to his own article on how gay hybrids are. Though as for the rest of the article, the point needs to be made to more moderates that when they vote for Republicans, it's these lunatics the Republicans are representing. We've seen it when they bash gays. We've seen it when they politicize a dead woman passing away. We've seen attempt to eliminate the 200 year old filibuster to appease the "Democrats hate Jesus" crowd. They hate gays, they want women to be submissive, they want science taken out of schools, they want to eliminate the seperation between church and state. They really are the American Taliban, and Republicans will do anything to appease them.
According to an official statement released over the weekend by the Coalition for Traditional Values, an organization that seeks a more flexible relationship between church and state, Mrs. Bush's jokes at her husband's expense amounted to a public emasculation of the President. Pastor Roy DeLong, the statement's author and chair of the group, warns that the First Lady's performance comes at a time when the Mr. Bush's "manliness is already under attack."
"As a believer, President Bush is no doubt familiar with the passage from Ephesians that says 'Wives, submit yourselves unto your husbands, as unto the Lord,'" says Mr. DeLong. "That means that just as Christ is the head of the church, the husband is the head of the wife. That is not the
Mrs. Bush interrupted a speech being given by her husband at the annual dinner, remarking that "I have a few things I want to say for a change." She then proceeded to mock his performance, both public ("if you really want to end tyranny in the world, you're going to have to stay up later") and private, noting that by nine o'clock, Mr. Bush, whom she referred to as "Mr. Excitement," is typically sound asleep.
"One of the Proverbs says that 'a virtuous woman is a crown to her husband, but she that maketh him ashamed is as rottenness in his bones," notes Mr. DeLong. "I bet President Bush is feeling pretty rotten today."
The rebuke to the First Lady's stand-up act comes on the heels of mounting concern about the President's image. Last week, Mr. Bush was seen holding hands with Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Then the President raised eyebrows anew when he asked a crowd of supporters in Galveston, TX if they celebrated Splash Day, an annual gay pride event in that state, best known for attracting tens of thousands of buff men, wearing little more than suntan oil.
Even some members of Mr. Bush's famously loyal party looked askance at his recommendation during a speech on the nation's energy needs last week, when he encouraged Americans to consider driving hybrid vehicles, widely believed to be 'gay' cars.
Wayne Stayskal Is A Hack
First off, if I was a teacher I would send that little smart ass to the corner too.
Though aside from the poor concept, he's obviously trying to make a political point. For those of you who don't know intelligent design is what the religiously insane want taught in schools. It basically says that children should not be taught science in school because science is so complicated that it doesn't exist. So schools have the option of teaching "the Earth goes around the sun" or "the Earth goes wherever the magic man wants". Most schools choose to teach science. That's where Stayskal gets his idea for his cartoon. His cartoon basically says 150 years of science reaserarch and fossil records are all lies and have no place in the school. He uses no evidence to to back up this claim. So, as I said in the title, Wayne Stayskal is a hack.
