Reichenbach Falls

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

The above is a funny diagram from the blog of Jessica Hagy. That’s her whole shtick. The entire blog is Venn diagrams and x-y graphs scribbled onto index cards. Some of them are pretty funny. You ought to read the comments people left on that post. It’s a replay in microcosm of all of the […]

Carnival of the Liberals with Senator John McCain

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

It’s been a while since I participated in a Carnival of the Liberals, so I figured I was overdue. The latest edition is up over at Cult of Gracie. It’s a good source for a variety of liberal topics. Go check it out. The one that caught my attention, though, was “The Evangelical Re-Invention of […]

The Brow Ridge Hour

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

(Image from Ragwater, Bitters, and Blue Ruin) We’ve looked at The Coral Ridge Hour before. The program seems to encapsulate fundiedom more than many other pray-TV shows, so we’ll probably examine a few more of them in the months ahead. The Coral Ridge Hour stars now-wormfood D. James Kennedy (DJK), who was one of the […]

Here’s Jesus!

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

(Image from Ragwater, Bitters, and Blue Ruin) I found this picture at the same web site as the Grant’s Pass Caveman (see next post). What sort of person would want this combination? He should have had the images on the opposite legs. Then it would appear that Jack Nicholson is looking at Jesus and is […]

Regulatory Malfunction Overturned

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

Expected content of children’s television now that the “wardrobe malfunction” decision has been overturned. Last week, the Third U.S. Circuit Court overturned the FCC’s $550,000 fine against CBS for Janet Jackson’s scandalous nipple show. We aren’t qualified to properly understand just how horrible this development is. We must turn to the fundies, who will tell […]

Fundies Are Pro-Choice After All!

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

(Image from The Pro-Choice Public Education Project) The headline over at fundie “news” site OneNewsNow is: Teen’s Mother Forces Her to Have an Abortion The story is pretty much encapsulated in the headline. A 16-year-old girl wanted to have the baby. Her mother pressured her to get an abortion, which is ultimately what happened. OneNewsNow […]

My Own Limits of Belief

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

Aliens from the planet Ruffled constructing the pyramids. (Image from The Thoughts and Sayings Of Baba Doodlius) One of my pet peeves is people who think that aliens built the pyramids. Frankly, as a member of the human race, I’m quite insulted. We’re an amazingly ingenious lot. If there’s a problem to solve, we generally […]

Comment of the Day, #4

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

Today’s favorite comment comes to us from Brian. In the comments to the article “Carnival of the Godless #96”, Brian writes: For being people who supposedly have the universe all figured out, Christians sure can be a narrow-minded, petty lot given to deplorable excesses of bitching and moaning. … Apparently the comfort of an eternal […]
