No I’m not referring to cross dressers.
I’m referring to the con artists who peddle god.
The hypocrites who claim moral superiority while ripping off their flocks.
The criminal syndicate of priests, bishops, cardinals and popes who shuffle child raping perverts around their vast criminal net work.
Time to end their position in the world.
There is no god. There is no heaven, no hell, no going home to your reward.
You are born, you live, you die.
In the words of Langston Hughes:
“Folks, I’m telling you,
birthing is hard
and dying is mean-
so get yourself
a little loving
Religion hasn’t been right about much of anything over several millennia.
The sun isn’t a chariot driven by a god being pulled across the sky. Lightning isn’t something hurled by a god.
The problem with monotheism is that it has too many women hating gods. If you don’t believe in many gods why believe in any gods?
Why believe in a god who commits such evil, or either won’t or can’t prevent great evil? What sort of god is that? Sounds like one that is some sort of capricious psychopath…
Lately more and more “religious leaders” are sounding like Jim Jones, preparing their flocks to chug the poison laced Kool-Aid.
Women having control over their own bodies…. Argh… Sure sign of the apocalypse.
LGBT/T people being able to enjoy the same rights, the same level of pursuit of happiness as straight people… Argh… Sure sign of the apocalypse.
Priests going to jail for molesting children instead of being transferred to some place else where they can preach homophobia while raping children… Argh.. Sure sign of the apocalypse.
Time to chug the Kool-Aid and wage crusades and jihads.
Time to punish the women and kill the queers.
Time to double down and protect the con game, the criminal scam, the heavenly protection racket.
Elect a fascist who will protect the scam.
Doesn’t matter if his religion is just as squirrelly as Scientology.
Time to end the power of the Child raping, women hating men in dresses.
No gods… No masters…

J. Peter Sartain says in this video that “human society would be harmed beyond repair,” should Washington state’s marriage equality law not be voted down in November, and suggests that marriage equality will have consequences “until the end of time.” The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Seattle adds he wants to make clear that the Church and its position on Referendum 74 (R-74) are “not against anything,” merely for enshrining marriage into law as only one-man, one-woman — which is by definition, discrimination.
Calling marriage “a gift” from God that is the “foundation of all human society, and must be protected, nurtured, and held as sacred by us all.” Which, is exactly what legalizing same-sex couples to enter the institution of civil marriage would accomplish. Given the fact that divorce rates and child homelessness are lower in areas where marriage equality is legal, one would think that the Church might embrace expanding the institution.
“Just as God is the creator of man and woman, so is he the author of marriage,” Sartain says. God, Sartain forgets, also — by his logic — created homosexuals, and, it would follow, therefore is the author of same-sex marriage.
“To suddenly change the God-given and time honored understanding of marriage would be a very harmful thing for our state and for the world. Put simply, it is not in the compelling interest of the state to change the definition of marriage. There are many ramifications for such a redefinition. Suffice it to say, should marriage be redefined in our state the very foundational nature of marriage for the good and strength of human society would be harmed beyond repair.”

More than 1,000 pastors plan to openly defy the IRS by telling their congregation on October 7 to vote for a particular presidential candidate, according to Fox News.
The annual event, dubbed “Pulpit Freedom Sunday,” has been organized by the conservative Christian group Alliance Defending Freedom. The pastors participating in the event plan to preach about the election, endorse a candidate, and send video of their sermon to the IRS.
“The purpose is to make sure that the pastor — and not the IRS — decides what is said from the pulpit,” Erik Stanley, senior legal counsel for the group, told FoxNews.com. “It is a head-on constitutional challenge.”
The Johnson amendment in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code prohibits tax-exempt charities and churches from intervening in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate. The IRS has been reluctant to revoke churches’ tax-exempt status for violating the more than 50-year-old IRS rule, but the agency has issued written warnings to dozens of churches.
“The IRS will send out notices from time to time and say you crossed the line,” Jim Garlow, a senior pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church in San Diego, told FoxNews.com. “But when it’s time to go to court, they close the case.”
I get so fucking sick and tired of Taliban Christers shoving their crap down our throats. If they want to live in a theocracy they should move to Saudi Arabia.

When Texas Republicans cut off Planned Parenthood from the state’s Women’s Health Program — losing millions in federal funds and endangering access to health care for women in the program — Gov. Rick Perry (R) promisedto keeping the program going with only state funds and without Planned Parenthood.
Now it’s clear what groups he wants to include in the program for low-income women instead: anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers that do not provide the same women’s health services. In fact, the Women’s Health Program doesn’t even cover pregnant women, so there is no clear reason why crisis pregnancy centers should be included.
Perry laid out his idea earlier this week at the opening of a new crisis pregnancy center in Houston, according to RH Reality Check:
“The Source for Women clinics, in fact, will be part of Texas’s own Women’s Health Program, and Planned Parenthood will not be,” Perry told the crowd. […]

By now everyone knows how Mitt Romney, speaking to donors in Boca Raton, washed his hands of almost half the country — the 47 percent who don’t pay income taxes — declaring, “My job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” By now, also, many people are aware that the great bulk of the 47 percent are hardly moochers; most are working families who pay payroll taxes, and elderly or disabled Americans make up a majority of the rest.
But here’s the question: Should we imagine that Mr. Romney and his party would think better of the 47 percent on learning that the great majority of them actually are or were hard workers, who very much have taken personal responsibility for their lives? And the answer is no.
For the fact is that the modern Republican Party just doesn’t have much respect for people who work for other people, no matter how faithfully and well they do their jobs. All the party’s affection is reserved for “job creators,” a k a employers and investors. Leading figures in the party find it hard even to pretend to have any regard for ordinary working families — who, it goes without saying, make up the vast majority of Americans.
Am I exaggerating? Consider the Twitter message sent out by Eric Cantor, the Republican House majority leader, on Labor Day — a holiday that specifically celebrates America’s workers. Here’s what it said, in its entirety: “Today, we celebrate those who have taken a risk, worked hard, built a business and earned their own success.” Yes, on a day set aside to honor workers, all Mr. Cantor could bring himself to do was praise their bosses.
Lest you think that this was just a personal slip, consider Mr. Romney’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. What did he have to say about American workers? Actually, nothing: the words “worker” or “workers” never passed his lips. This was in strong contrast to President Obama’s convention speech a week later, which put a lot of emphasis on workers — especially, of course, but not only, workers who benefited from the auto bailout.
