Christianity, like Marriage, is only as Strong as its Weakest Link




Christianity, like Marriage, is only as Strong as its Weakest Link

There is that scene in the recent movie “Selma” with LBJ meeting with Governor George Wallace in the Oval Office in 1965 and two Southern politicians are trying to haggle their way out of an uncomfortable situation whereby one hundred years of Jim Crow and racial suppression was bubbling up all over the South but in this particular place of Alabama with protesters wanting to march across the state to petition their state government for a redress of their grievance of wanting to exercise their full constitutional right to vote without hindrance in that state.

The white men in Alabama sounding like the Roman Catholic Church on Sacred Tradition were saying this is how it has always been and we are satisfied with it.

The black men in Alabama no longer wanted to be on the short end of the stick, an expression, and no longer on the end of stick being beaten or killed for asking for their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

At one point Governor Wallace wants the federal government to go along with Southern Sacred Tradition and Lyndon Johnson, wanting to establish some sort of legislative legacy, throws the problem back at Wallace and tells him that as Governor he can force adherence to national law at the local level at the county level where all government is local and the local voting registrar is the real place where the Negro was being denied his local rights.

It occurred to me upon recent viewing of that movie for the first time, how the definition of man and the definition of the rights of man are in essence defined and or redefined according to the local prejudice and flavors of the month, years and century.

Which also brings this slightly aged person, with memories of the sixties, to look at County Clerk Kim Davis of Rowan County Kentucky and her singular obsession with the biblical definition of “marriage” and her hearing and obeying her “god” and his direct command to her to enforce “his” definition of whatever marriage is.

Before marriage, I told a friend that I thought of marriage as a merger and or alliance between two people. He having been married more than once listened to my definition and or preconceived idea of marriage and laughed. He told me that at best marriage is a truce between two people on the front line of the war between the sexes and the unique qualities, attributes and assets of those eternally warring factions, and their ongoing hit or miss contributions in the way of offspring to the common good and millennial old haphazard survival of the species.

Some weird Baptist cult, famous for their hatred of gays, has set up protesting with signs shop within hearing distance of three times divorced County Clerk, living in a glass house Kim Davis, and throwing stones at da gays who wish to be in legal union and or marriage with each other. 

The traditional definition of marriage via filtering of the RC sacred traditions that make up their ritual plagued religion, and the basis of most modern Christianity, had Jesus, a single man going to a wedding with his mom, and getting drunk. No engagement to a female, no bridal registries, no speaking of vows. 

Of course that is not the way they tell the stained glass story on the wall of the cathedral but that is the bottom line – the stained glass sacred tradition story. Marriage in the RC tradition / “Christian” POV would appear to be whatever sacred tradition says “it” is - just like - the way “it” has always been for the white man in the South - the majority opinion in the church so to speak is the definition of what sexual union and or sexual truce is within the confines of a legal union and or marriage – and must be between a legal aged male and female of the species.  

Minority opinions do not count.

Kim Davis with her three divorces is technically according to the sparse and or spaced all over the place in the Greek Testament phrasings – she is an adulterer and her many other marriages are not the one true union of marriage that Jesus supposedly defined once upon a time in a distant galaxy in a time far, far away from the real here and now.

Kim is a “whore” living in sin and the good people of the Westboro Baptist “Christian” cult don’t think that Kim is the right spokesperson to diss and deny gay people their civil rights. (Strange turn of events and or rhetoric?) 

Christianity and its thousands of sects and cults is after all only as strong and its weakest link and or links as in the Kim Davis variety or the Westboro inbred Christer crazies.

The Pedophile Union Lobby that runs the Vatican has after fifty years post-Vatican had a Synod recently and after fifty years since Vatican II of shitting on the divorced of their church, they are reaching out for contributions or contributions disguised as an invitation to return to the Church and get a mean spirited right to their sacraments - take or leave it losers - or btw go to hell. 

This as the pews remain empty and perhaps a few divorced catholics who have not already joined the Lutherans or the Anglicans or other main stream Protestant churches that accept in a complex world, the complex reasons why marriages fail, why there is divorce and why everybody deserves a second chance to make a more perfect union with a spouse and of course with or without children involved.

I am reminded of the author Anne Rice who went back briefly to the RC church and left after a few months later pulling her hair and screaming something to the effect that the nostalgic home of the church she remembered from childhood was replaced by the biased boilerplate preaching of the meal tickets clerics defending celibacy in all its toxic forms including the Sacred Tradition of Omerta surrounding regarding pedophilia, of that particular business, sect, cult.

Good luck to any divorced people lucky enough to find a comfortable roost in the same old medieval RC church thing btw.




The Vatican Synod on the “Family” btw forgot about all the gays.  Divorced Catholics first on the tour. Maybe in another hundred years, the gays?

Pope Francis, who is a great PR guy, having not only survived some of the darkest fascist days of Argentina history but prospered as well despite that history, is trying to I think to highlight a lot of piles, mountains of sacred tradition in the RC church (with a possible need to change, tweek things a bit here and there?) before he goes to his eternal reward and is no doubt happier stirring up the pot in Rome rather than in Buenos Aires. Wink, nod.

Which brings us to the people of this world, the Kim Davis county clerks, or the cookie cutter RC priests, or the perfect cult people of the Westboro Baptist Congregation publicity seeking church playing with themselves and defining marriage any which way but loose.

Marriage is in the words of the definer?

Which goes back to my tongue in cheek but probably no so far from the truth article about a stoned Jesus as a gay wedding.  A long standing 2,000 year old coded message from da bible? Again – Wink, Nod. 


Good thing I am mostly cultured and not christianed these days?


Whatever.

Baby Boomies vs. Burb Babies – Tea Party Generation Against Their American Neighbors – “Who is the Tea Party Anyway?”


From a conversation on Facebook involving the question of “who is the Tea Party” in relation to their approval of Paul Ryan via the "Freedom Caucus", unofficial wing of the Tea Party– “Burb Baby Generation”.


Friend: The biggest problem with the Tea Party is...who are they to decide who is worthy? What big balls.


Friend: “I'll say this again...note their year of birth. there is something gone haywire with these dudes born in the 60's. Not only that most if not all never had to struggle in an urban environment”



Me: “Burb babies. First generation of Uber moms driving soccer champs all over the Eisenhower highways. Lol”



Friend: “You may have hit on that as the answer

Thank you Tea Party god—Paul Ryan



Thank you Tea Party god—Paul Ryan


Thanks to the Tea Party, the poor, the elderly, the disabled are now the problem in America. And thanks to the Tea Party, the Paul Ryan budget will get its chance to starve and kill off the poor, the elderly, the disabled and thank the Tea Party god, Paul Ryan will have quality time to get home on weekends to visit his family at the mansion in Wisconsin and Paul and oil rich wifey can go for cocktails and a dance at the country club while Maria, the illegal? (don’t ask-don’t tell Maria), will get an obscenely generous $1.50 an hour babysitting the kids. Ain’t America Great!

Netanyahu Absolves Hitler of the Holocaust – It Was a Palestinian Plot – Not German




"Hitler didn't want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jews," Netanyahu said in the speech. "And Haj Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said, 'If you expel them, they'll all come here (Palestine).'

"'So what should I do with them?'" Netanyahu said Hitler asked the mufti, who responded: "Burn them."

Netanyahu, whose father was an eminent historian, was quickly harangued by opposition politicians and experts on the Holocaust who said he was distorting the historical record.

They noted the meeting between Husseini and Hitler took place on November 28, 1941. More than two years earlier, in January 1939, Hitler had addressed the Reichstag, Nazi Germany's parliament, and spoke clearly about his determination to exterminate the "Jewish race".


"To say that the mufti was the first to mention to Hitler the idea to kill or burn the Jews is not correct," Dina Porat, a professor at Tel Aviv University and the chief historian of Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust memorial museum, told Israel Radio.

Christer Grifter Rev. Rafael “Tom Ripley” Cruz Being Distanced From By Thesbian “Son” Senator “Ted” Cruz’s Campaign.



The tale of he said, she said, he-she said of the so-called Rev. Rafael Cruz, alledged NF (natural father) of Actor and Joker Texas Senator Ted Cruz, unfolds as Trump Truth(s) floods the stable of the GOP party.


He is a Dominionist, devoted to a movement that finds in Genesis a mandate that “men of faith” seize control of public institutions and govern by biblical principle. He fluidly quotes long passages of the Bible when he preaches at big-box churches or addresses large Republican audiences….

Until it folded in 2014, Purifying Fire was a Costa Mesa, Calif., ministry owned by Suzanne Hinn, the divorced (then remarried) wife of faith healer Benny Hinn. A spokesman for the Cruz presidential campaign said Rev. Cruz has never been associated with the Hinns, but “used the Purifying Fire name for a while then he dropped it.”

“Pastor at a church in Dallas” isn’t exactly right either, although according to the campaign: “You don’t have to have a church to be a pastor.”…


Kingdom Translation Services Inc. has been registered with the Texas Secretary of State since 2012, with a billing address in an apartment complex in a Dallas suburb. It has no working website or listed phone number. “It is Rev. Cruz’s one-man translation service,” according to the campaign.

Thespian Senator Ted Cruz Outed As Unelectable But Passable Entertainment To Some.




I see this clown Donny Deutsch on some advertisements on Cable TV for a reality and or “comedy” show on USA and look him up having seen him forever on Morning Joe adding some opinion or that and assuming he is just another sycophant Morning Joe toady.

Apparently he has credentials on Mad Ave and or show biz and outed fellow Thesbian Senator Ted Cruz in the article below, revealing Ted's great desire to do Sarah Palin in Drag in some seedy Greenwich Village basement club. STDs free.

Go Donny. Good luck in your terrible new Show. Break a leg!



Early Monday morning, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) announced that he is running for president in 2016.

Later that same morning, frequent "Morning Joe" guest Donny Deutsch explained why he's not worried about the Republican senator winning the election.

"He is Sarah Palin," Deutsch said. "He is theater. He is completely unelectable."

"Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski objected, but Deutsch pressed on, arguing that he would even bet that come November, Cruz would no longer be in the picture.


“He’s good theater. That's why he is Sarah Palin. And that's who Sarah Palin was. And we love the show," he went on.

Westboro Inbreds Coming After “Fake Christian” And Adulter/Proud Sinner Kim Davis, Rowan County Kentucky Clerk






Honestly! Can’t make this Crazy Christian/Religion Shit up!



"Kim claims that she has lived in proud sin for many years, divorcing and remarrying, not one time or two times, in fact you need a score card to keep track. Her lawyers, being smooth talking fellows say that all that was before her call to salvation two years ago when her current mother-in-law died. Nice, tidy, cleaver (sic), but no cigar! These matters are not hard and unclear. That man that Kim Davis is living with and calling her husband, IS NOT! Her husband is Dwain Wallace, who she married when she was 18-years-old. It does not matter how many years you pile on, it was adultery at the beginning and it was adultery in the middle and it is indeed adultery today!

Madonna - American Pie






A long, long time ago
I can still remember how that music used to
make me smile
And I knew that if I had my chance
I could make those people dance
And maybe they'd be happy for a while

Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so
Now do you believe in Rock 'n' roll
And can music save your mortal soul
And can you teach me how to dance real slow

Well, I know that you're in love with him
'Cos I saw you dancin' in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
Man, I dig those rhythm and blues

I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck
With a pink carnation and a pick-up truck
But I knew that I was out of luck
The day the music died
I started singing

Bye, bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Singing this'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die

I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn't play

Well now, in the streets the children screamed
The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
Tho church bells all were broken
And the three men I admire the most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died

We started singin'

Bye, bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Singing this'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die

Bye, bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Singing this'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die

We started singin'
We started singin'
We started singin'
We started singin'
