Santorum Soft on Homosexuality

Barking moonbats are in an uproar that Rick Snatorum has vowed to restore "Dont' Ask, Don't Tell" if he wins the presidency. Conservatives however are in an uproar over Santorum's support of the liberal Clinton-era policy that was designed as a wedge to get homosexuals into the military in the first place.

Before Bill Clinton pushed for DADT, homosexuals were banned from service in the US military. Santorum would restore the US Military not to a Biblically aligned condition of morality, but to a debauched state created by an adulterous president who was impeached for lying under oath.

Past Presidents banned homosexuals from service in the US Military. Rick Santorum wants to let them in, as long as they're sneaky enough to not get caught in the act. That's being soft Ricky. That's bowing to the gay agenda like Bill Clinton. That's being a liberal, not a Conservative.

"But, he wants to push back the gay agenda by restoring DADT!" you may say. You have to realize that the repeal of DADT hasn't really changed anything in the military, as enforcement of DADT was already very lax under Obama. Only homosexuals who outed themselves or who were caught in a gay sex act have been kicked out under Obama. A law that's not enforced is as bad as no law at all. Santorum's claim to want to restore DADT is nothing but an effort to SOUND tough on homosexuality without actually doing anything about it. If he really cared about this issue he'd be moving to ban homosexuals, not let them linger on as long as they're discrete enough about it.

The Republican party and the Tea Party would be better off without gay agenda enablers like Rick Santorum.

Gay rumors have circulated for years about Santorum. His desire to discretely keep homosexuals in the US Military only adds fuel to the speculation.

Pat Robertson grants his wife permission to divorce him

Pat Robertson has hit the news recently for giving advice that few have comprehended. On the surface, it looks like he was claiming that advanced Alzheimer's disease was grounds for divorce, as it was a "kind of death." The media and many unfamiliar with the tragedies surrounding Pat Robertson's life have taken him to task on this, accusing him of hypocrisy, demeaning marriage, encouraging spousal abandonment and violating the sanctity of the institution. It's even been speculated that Pat is setting the stage for divorcing his own wife in the near future, or is seeking a rationalization for supporting Newt Gingrich, despite Newt's divorce of his cancer stricken wife in order to marry a younger woman.

What Pat's critics are not taking into account is something that has become obvious to his devoted fans in recent years.

Pat Robertson has Alzheimer's.

Many fans first began to see hints of his mental decline when he came out on his program as a supporter of the controversial theory of global warming. He gave a recent heat wave as evidence, even though most global warming believers claim that "weather is not climate." To them, a particularly hot Summer is no more proof of global warming than a particularly cold winter is fatal evidence against it. Pat's bizarre acceptance of global warming therefore embraced a variant that the majority of the global warming faithful consider flawed. There was even debate among the global warming congregants about how they should feel about Pat's sudden and inexplicable support, in light of his deeply flawed reasoning.

This complete failure to understand very basic tenants of the global warming faith was a major warning to Pat's fans. His continually shrinking role on the 700 Club shows that his friends, family and coworkers have known for a long time.

The once healthy, active and fit Pat Robertson has been deteriorating rapidly. Mentally he is not what he once was. The formerly charismatic and confident speaker has begun to falter and lose track of the thread of discussion on a regular basis. His raw screen time on the 700 Club has been in decline for a few years now, with ever increasing amounts of anchor time being given to supporting staff and not Robertson himself. Where he once sat alone at the anchor desk telling viewers about the news of the day, he now has an assistant with him. That assistant generally does most of the talking, with Pat only interjecting periodically.

Only Pat's advice segment has retained Pat as the consistent sole speaker, but the duration of the segment is shorter than it was in the 1990's and early 21st century. He often takes fewer questions, or has visible difficulty understanding the content of a particular question.

In light of his condition, it's obvious that Pat has given his wife very public permission to, in the near future, arrange for him to have a caretaker, divorce him and remarry, so that she may enjoy her golden years, free of the misery of caring for a deteriorating husband. Far from being the endorsement of abandonment many claim, Pat has made a very Christ-like sacrifice for his beloved wife. He has given her permission to move on and live her life, even as he is consigned to an unknowing living death.

Why the obsession with Rebecca Watson?

Rebecca Watson is a well known atheist and self identified skeptic. She runs the Skepchick web site and is one of the hosts of the podcast "The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe."

She's also one of the most stalked atheists on the Internet. It only takes a little research to find innumerable incidents of people stalking or harassing her.

In an incident known in skeptic circles as "Elevatorgate" she made a casual comment about a guy hitting on her in an elevator at 4:00 in the morning. She described the behavior as a bit creepy. The resulting firestorm of internet drama involved well known atheists such as Richard Dawkins in an imaginary battle between men and women. One comment on a poorly executed pick-up attempt resulted in battle lines being drawn, talk of the atheist movement having a schism and general behavior more appropriate to a playground than the allegedly intellectual debates of people who claim to see no evidence of the existence of God. My brother Peter commented that it made them "sound like a bunch of bickering Presbyterians, getting ready to split off and form a new synod over how many angels could sit on the head of a pin."

Watson was a long time target of Dennis Markuze. That's not saying much though as he (Or the character he portrayed) attacked anyone who didn't support his belief that a has-bin 80's glam band predicted the September 11 attacks through a music video. Even I, who only commented on him when he started sending death threats to the Montreal police, received a few rude posts before his incarceration.

The most recent stalker is a lad who was very upset that Watson suggested that male circumcision wasn't as horrible as female circumcision. His reply was as over-the-top as anything from Dennis Markuze:


Remember, this reaction was over Watson saying the complete removal of all sensitive sexual organs on a woman, completely denying her any physical pleasure from marital relations, might be a bit worse than removing a flap of skin on a man that serves no function but to increase penile cancer rates.

Why is Watson such a lightning rod for demented people? She's not particularly famous outside her own circle. It's come to my attention that her Wikipedia entry has been deleted multiple times as the site didn't deem her "notable" enough to have an entry. She's certainly not that controversial among atheists and skeptics. I get death threats because I quote Bible verses to people who are flagrantly violating God's law. Watson is doing little more than saying what other skeptics are saying, usually with a bit more eloquence. Why is she getting so much more flack than her equally opinionated peers? You can't even blame sexual frustration and unrequited desires. While she's physically attractive, she's in a movement dominated by young people, the most attractive of whom tend to plaster their image across their blogs like wallpaper. Yes, she's very pretty, but so are all other other female atheists on skepchick.org.

Why is it I can't go more than a week or two without encountering another tale of some lunatic making a fool of himself by harassing Rebecca Watson with violent rhetoric? The lunatics cover a wide range of political and religious beliefs. She's as likely to be harassed by another atheist as by a religious zealot.

Is there anyone out there who can offer an explanation as to why?

Gibson of Hollywood, Judah the Hammer and Jesus of Nazareth

"Judah the Hammer is the perfect story to bring Jewish culture and Christianity together. He's an early crusader, a warrior for God. His life parallels the life of Christ so closely that by the time Jesus was born many Jews believed that Judah the Hammer had been the promised messiah. That belief has persisted to this day, with millions of Jews worldwide believing that Judah the Hammer had fulfilled the messianic prophesies in the Bible. It's a major obstacle to converting the Jews. Judah the Hammer will do a lot of the debunking himself, talking about how he CAN'T be the messiah because, for example, he wasn't born of a virgin mother. Judah the Hammer is a great hero and we're going to use his life to show how he foreshadowed the messiah, turn him into something of a preemptive John the Baptist."
