Hah.  I’ve never been called an extremist before.  Good to know I am violent and a hater.

Defense Department classifies Catholics, evangelicals as extremists – Washington Times.

 

Wikipedia is single-handedly bringing down the intelligence level of the modern day citizen.  Not because it in of itself is stupid, but the people who use it are.  See that little blue link that comes at the end of sentences?  Yeah…that’s a link to take you to a source so you can confirm the validity of a statement.

Try not to fail so badly next time.

Over and out of here.

 

P.S. – I am a hater…a hater of stupidity.

But no less important or powerful.

Columbine Student’s father 12 years later…

Guess our national leaders didn’t expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.

Or, get the gist of the message with this:

Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.

Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You’ve stripped away our heritage,
You’ve outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question "Why?"
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!

 

Amen, brother.

 

Now, take a stand instead of just standing aside.

Yes, I read religious stuff.  Yes, I am of a religion.  Yes, that makes me totally better than most of you.  No, that doesn’t mean I understand a word in this book.

But, Benny is still a wizard with words.  Pope Benedict XVI (Benny to his close friends) writes about finding hope – by finding God – in one of his early works published after rising to the see of Peter. 

I won’t wax poetical, or try to pretend that I can explain with as much word magic as the Pope can, but I will say that “Saved in Hope” was my favorite religious writing when I first read it, and remains my favorite religious reading today.  I’ve skimmed, flipped, (not dog-eared because that’s wrong) bookmarked, copied down on 3×5 cards, and generally tried to live memorize this work.

It’s religious, it’s spiritual, it’s uplifting, it’s God.

 

Oh, and I still hate bipeds.  Thanks for nothing, Trebek.
