A Nest of Vipers

So, the Orwellianly-named “Value Voters Summit" was this weekend. I’ve been lightly monitoring some of the headlines and peeking in on some of rhetoric. And surprise, surprise… same old same old. Pretty much what you’d expect. "Take Murica back for freedom and Jesus and Israel because we’re persecuted and we need a Crusade because Islam and Communist Nazi atheist Muslim Hussein Obama Bengazi. Also, OMG abortion and gay marriage!!"

Adventures In Irony: The ones who bawl and squall the loudest about the pretend threat of “creeping Sharia” are perfectly happy with a nation ruled by religion; they just don’t want any competition over whose version of Invisible Santa Claus Guy’s Book of Fairy Tales will dictate the morals of the masses by divine fatwa, exempt from the rules of evidence and immune to criticism.

HATE IS LOVE. FEAR IS COURAGE. FAITH IS REASON.

THE ONE TRUE GOD IS WATCHING YOU.

A nest of vipers. Scribes and Pharisees. Hypocrites. This is what it’s come to.

Anyway, I note with interest that when I first started this blog, posting secularist and theocracy-watch type links was a significant part of it. Now, it has largely fallen off to little more than an afterthought. Now, even going to the trouble of posting all the links and commenting on them seems more of an investment of time and energy than I’m willing to sacrifice from my own reserves in the bigger scheme of my master plan.

The forces of Restriction and theocracy in the West have not gone away, of course. And the ones leading the charge on science denial and stupid restrictions based on obsolete Bronze Age pseudo-morality in America are still not Muslims. But for the most part I’ve grown to resist getting too sucked into the vortex of letting their every little move and awful comment divert me too much from my own true Mission… defeating the purpose of being free from their strangleholds in the first place.

The fact I can pretty well do my thing without their silliness obstructing me too much is a good thing, but there are others who are not so fortunate. Now to build my power, fulfill my Mission, and remain on watch for ways to pry their claws off the others…

Words fail, so I’ll just let this speak for itself. It’s the just-surfaced audio of a speech that Jerry Boykin, executive vice president of the Family Research Council, delivered at the WallBuilders’ Pro-Family Legislators Conference in November:

No need to apologize, Australia.  You got rid of him fair and square.  We’ve been trying to dump him off on other countries but no one else is dumb enough to take him.

Apology accepted. We’ve shat so many morons into the world we’re in no position to throw stones. Plus, I can’t stay mad at anyone who gave us Miranda Kerr.
