KATRINA AND RR'S LAST MARBLE

FROM THE LONDON TIMES If Pat Robertson and his groupies in the Religious Right Movement (it's not exactly a movement, more a stalemate) ran the world, YIKES, we THINKING HUMANS, would be in a HELLAVA fix. They may not run the entire world but they have far too much control over many people's minds.

A friend of mine, sent me the article below. Good grief, the writer states that the Religious Right has LOST IT'S LAST MARBLE... I find this to be an understatement! They, lost all their marbles a long time ago. They, the RR's, are now claiming GOD made Katrina turn it's horrendous storm path into New Orleans because abortions were performed there and guess what else? Yup, you guessed it, something to do with GAYS.

ABORTIONS? Nature (which I believe they refer to as GOD) performs spontaneous abortions (miscarriages) constantly so I guess their own GOD is also at fault. Talk about laughable or hilarious because of obvious absurdity, or let's talk about homophobia, these people are so afraid of homosexuals they are willing to make their GOD appear to be a freaken IDIOT.

I am sharing this article because I personally heard something ludicrously similar in the small town where I live. It seems a teacher in my community, told her students (in a public school, I might add), that GOD created AIDS in order to punish homosexuals for their life style. (She failed to mention, since the epidemic began, 25 million people have died from AIDS, which has caused more than 13 million children to lose either their mother or both parents. For its analysis, UNICEF uses a term that illustrates the gravity of the situation; child-headed households, or minors orphaned by HIV/AIDS who are raising their siblings) Is their GOD punishing the children and babies? She did add the words "I BELIEVE THIS TO BE TRUE." at least that might make her students feel it is only her opinion but still a very dangerous statement to make to children who probably feel she is all knowing.

Thinking about this tale, made me realize THESE PEOPLE don't think too much of their GOD. This GOD of theirs is the most small minded, intolerant, mean spirited and selfish entity we earthlings could ever encounter and is so enormously unwilling to tolerate any DIFFERENCE in opinions or beliefs that deviate from his own, if he were REAL, that is! Thank HOLY CRAP, no pun intended, he's NOT. I am quite happy HE, only exists in the minds of his equally small minded, Intolerant, mean spirited and selfish flock.

I am not a believer nor nonbeliever (yes, I can jump over both sides of the fence because science has not advanced enough to give us ALL the answers, though, I must add, I prefer the side of sanity.) but I would think an all powerful supreme being would not and could not succumb to the frivolities of the animal species, Homo sapiens. The only acceptable type of Supreme Being (God) would be an energy form without feelings or emotions... Come on you people, it's time to grow up and realize YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN with your smallness of mind and INTOLERANCE, don't try to blame it on a GOD! Thinking Blue

PS: Another story from the community I live in: A science teacher from these parts told her students, just before teaching them EVOLUTION, that she does NOT believe in what she is about to teach. She is bound by law to teach this THEORY (she actually used "theory" to mean NOT PROVEN and calls herself a TEACHER OF SCIENCE). "Remember class this is only a THEORY and therefore does not really exist. Don't believe it as fact for it IS NOT! Keep in mind what your parents and church have taught you about GOD being the creator of you, you came from ADAM AND EVE not from monkeys and that is a FACT!"

I'M OUT OF HERE!

Creationists argue that evolution is "only a theory and cannot be proven."


As used in science, a theory is an explanation or model
based on observation, experimentation, and reasoning,
especially one that has been tested and confirmed as a
general principle helping to explain and predict natural
phenomena.

Any scientific theory must be based on a careful and
rational examination of the facts. A clear distinction needs
to be made between facts (things which can be
observed and/or measured) and theories (explanations
which correlate and interpret the facts.

A fact is something that is supported by unmistakable
evidence. For example, the Grand Canyon cuts through layers
of different kinds of rock, such as the Coconino sandstone,
Hermit shale, and Redwall limestone. These rock layers often
contain fossils that are found only in certain layers. Those
are the facts.

It is a fact is that fossil skulls have been found
that are intermediate in appearance between humans
and modern apes. It is a fact that fossils have been
found that are clearly intermediate in appearance
between dinosaurs and birds.

Facts may be interpreted in different ways by different
individuals, but that doesn't change the facts themselves.
Theories may be good, bad, or indifferent. They may be
well established by the factual evidence, or they may lack
credibility. Before a theory is given any credence in the
scientific community, it must be subjected to "peer review."
This means that the proposed theory must be published in a
legitimate scientific journal in order to provide the
opportunity for other scientists to evaluate the relevant
factual information and publish their conclusions.

Creationists refuse to subject their "theories" to peer
reviews, because they know they don't fit the facts. The
creationist mindset is distorted by the concept of "good
science" (creationism) vs. "bad science" (anything not in
agreement with creationism). Creation "scientists" are
biblical fundamentalists who can not accept anything
contrary to their sectarian religious beliefs.

The Social Map
(The existence of mental concepts that
impose order on our experiences, as revealed by Kant, now
appears obvious to most social scientists (Kant, translated
by Kemp Smith and Caygill [1787], 2003). We cannot negotiate
social life, following its structures, norms and values,
other than by maintaining a lexicon of relevant information.
This, in turn, implies a central role for human memory in
the structuring of social life. Erase one individual’s
memory and they are no longer social beings: if all
individuals’ memories were erased, by means of some
neurological catastrophe, then society would cease to exist
in any meaningful form beyond a collection of residual
artifacts. Thus, the sociological perspective that views
society as existing beyond the individual only holds in a
metaphorical or philosophical sense or, perhaps ironically,
if we are basing our assumptions from the standpoint of a
single individual.)

The following article came from: Morons.org

I wish I could say I was making this up. But I'm not.

The Religious Right has lost its last marble. Anyone
who believes the nonsense that they're dishing out now has
got to be completely and utterly brainless. If you're
reading this and you think that the positions taken by
these fundamentalist wackos make sense, let me be
absolutely clear now: you are stupid. You have no brains.
You have disabled the organ that allows you to reason.

The Columbia Christians for Life have concluded that
Hurricane Katrina was the wrath of God on the city of New
Orleans for having abortion clinics. Now if that sounds
remotely plausible to you, I should point out that they
also claim the radar image of the hurricane resembles a
6-week-old fetus
. No, I am not making this up. I wish
I were. Note that the radar image does not resemble a
6-week-old fetus, but rather a hurricane.

The Brainless Right has also asserted that

gays are to blame for the hurricane
.

Is this starting to sound familiar?
The reasoning goes
that a gay event, "Southern
Decadence
" was planned for Wednesday, August 31
through Labor Day. Ergo, the hurricane's arrival a few
days before meant that God was displeased with New Orleans
for allowing homosexuals to exist within its city limits.

Yet I note from the
Google cache of the meetings and conventions
(the main
site is down- go figure) for August that the American
Association of Zoo Keepers was planning to meet in New
Orleans on August 29. How do we know that isn't what God
was upset about? Why is it that it hasn't particularly
bothered God that Southern Decadence has been held for the
last 34 years... he's only just getting irate about it
now? Why doesn't he get upset about the countless other
gay events in the country and around the world?

The reason is of course quite simple: "God" had nothing
to do with hurricane Katrina. See most of us in the
species Homo sapiens have progressed far enough to
understand that weather patterns on this planet are caused
by variances in temperature, pressure, relative humidity,
winds and so-on. We no longer rely upon superstition or
religion to explain (or predict) the weather.
Unfortunately, there are those in this species who have
switched their minds off and stubbornly refuse to use
them. It is people who are absolutely and completely
senseless who still believe garbage like "God's wrath"
being the source of severe weather.

Michael Marcavage, moron and director of the radical
fundamentalist death cult known as "Repent America"
actually said "this act of God destroyed a wicked city.
New Orleans was a city that opened its doors wide open to
the public celebration of sin. May it never be the same.
We must not forget that the citizens of New Orleans
tolerated and welcomed the wickedness in their city for so
long."

And here I thought it was a hurricane caused by a low
pressure system and strengthened by favorable conditions
over the warm water in the Gulf of Mexico that hit New
Orleans. I guess I was wrong. I guess it was actually a
supernatural entity taking out his vengeance on New
Orleans. Because that just makes way more sense.

The real danger here isn't that Moron Marcavage puked
forth this arrant nonsense, grossly taking advantage of
human suffering, death and destruction for his own
political and religious grandstanding. No, the real danger
is that there do exist people who are patently stupid
enough to hear what he says and believe it to be true
without a second thought. (By definition, "thought" would
have ruled out this drivel completely.)

My only hope is that as the claims, assertions and
aspersions cast by these idiots will continue to grow in
absurdity for every future disaster such that eventually
they'll be so ridiculous that nobody, no matter how
brain-dead, could possibly do anything but laugh at them.

More Homophobia Quotes:

"The day after George Bush was elected president again,
because of this morals revolution taking place in our
country, he allows his vice president to not only put his
lesbian daughter on the platform, but to bring her lesbian
'partner' up on the stage with him. It almost seems to be a
slap in the face from the get-go against the very
conservatives that re-elected the president at a time when
he ought to paying them some homage and respect."

"As far as I'm concerned, people who have AIDS are a
danger. They're a danger to spread AIDS. People should be
able to know who has AIDS. It costs an awful lot of money to
treat them."

"They bring it on themselves. They don't get it by sitting
on the toilet seat. . . . A person who gives AIDS, who
spreads AIDS, they're bad people. Everybody wants to be on
the good side of everything. Well, I'm taking a stand."

--Maryland Comptroller William Donald Schaefer (D), October 12, 2004

anyone who practices homosexuality."
