Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

Splinter, see plank

Whoa! The never-right-wing has its panties in a knicker over New Jersey's Supreme Court saying that gays have rights. How dare they! Why, if gays have rights, people will gay-marry box turtles and have man-on-dog sex in the streets, according to Senators Cornyn and Santorum. Everybody knows that. Why, people gay-marry box turtles and have man-on-dog sex in the streets all the time up in Canada, where gay marriage has been legal for two years now!

Now, since the never-right-wing is so upset about gay marriage and how "un-Christian" it is, I've been reading my Bible to see what it says about gay marriage, and not seeing anything there about gay marriage. It does, however, have lots to say about divorce. For example:

“32: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery” (Matthew 5: 32) and, “9: And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery” (Matthew 19: 9, all quotations are from the King James unless otherwise stated).

It is interesting that the Bible Belt has the highest divorce rate in the country… and that the “sinful” states of Massachusetts and New York have the lowest. Heck, Alabama, with 2/3rds the population of Massachusetts, had more divorces than Massachusetts in 2005!

So let’s add it up:

  1. The Bible says nothing about gay marriage
  2. The Bible has lots to say about divorce
  3. The Bible Belt and Republican Party are full of people who’ve violated the Bible when it comes to divorce, people like Newt Gingritch and Rush Limbaugh have even violated it *MULTIPLE* times.
Let’s see, what’s that “h” word again? That word to use when a man with a plank in his eye is pointing out the splinter in another’s eye? Oh yeah, that one is in the Bible too: “hypocrite”. Matthew 7:4.

It’s amazing how so many people who profess to follow the Bible apparently have never even read the dadburned thing…

"Keep fighting for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce." -- Molly Ivins, 1944-2007 "The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."
