Dig the Ditches, Burn the Witches

You might think that I spent last Sunday at a soccer tournament. After all, I did take my kids to a park with soccer fields where they played the game of soccer along with several hundred other girls. However, this was not a soccer tournament, but a satanic ritual serving as Lucifer's waiting room, where evil liberals indoctrinated little girls into a lifestyle of evil that will result in eternal damnation:



I am happy to report that we successfully exposed over 400 of Satan's New Minions to witch imagery and other occult symbolism, ensuring that these otherwise innocent-looking children will someday carry on our anti-Christian traditions (such as ethnic diversity, civil rights, watching CBS News, and touching black people directly on their skin).

Of course, we had no Bibles present at the event - just like in our mainstay of heretical indoctrination, the Public Schools of America:

School asks student to replace Bible reading with book about witches
In one Pennsylvania public school, reading from the Bible is forbidden -- but reading about witches and Halloween is encouraged. Wesley Busch is a kindergarten student at Culbertson Elementary School in Newton Square, Pennsylvania -- and all he wanted to do was have his mother read aloud from his favorite book, the Bible. [...] "When Wesley told his mom 'I want you to read the Bible, that's my favorite book,' the school said no --even though they let every other book reading go forward," (their) attorney explains. "And even though they told Mrs. Busch 'no, you can't read the Bible,' [they said] 'but here, read this book on witches and Halloween instead.'"

I'm going to take a wild guess, and say that the kid couldn't give less of a shit about the Bible, that his mother is a freakish bitch who demanded that she read the Bible aloud in class, that she selected passages that were designed to make other kids feel ashamed of themselves if their families were not Christian, and that she threatened a lawsuit on-site at the school if they didn't comply with her dementia. Hell, let's stop guessing and read from the court documents:

It is admitted that as of October, 2004, Plaintiff’s son, Wesley, was a kindergarten student at Culberston Elementary School and that his teacher was Mrs. Reilly. It is further admitted that in approximately mid-October, 2004, Plaintiff came to Mrs. Reilly’s kindergarten classroom. It is denied that Plaintiff came to Mrs. Reilly’s kindergarten classroom pursuant to a specific invitation.
Well, we're off to a good start...

By way of further answer, Defendants do not know why Plaintiff was at Culbertson Elementary School that day or who chose the book from which she attempted to read aloud. Defendants further deny that one such activity of the “All About Me” week was the opportunity to have the student’s parent read aloud from the student’s favorite book. To the contrary, there was a general invitation to share, among other things, a story. By way of further answer, Defendants do not know who chose the Bible or why the Bible was chosen. Defendants do not know whether Wesley asked the Plaintiff to read a passage from the Bible to his classmates. Defendants do not know who chose to read Psalm 118.
Oh my. Before we get back to the court documents, let's take a look at Psalm 118 ... I won't post the whole damn thing here, but my favorite lines are "It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man," and "They swarmed around me like bees, but they died out as quickly as burning thorns; in the name of the LORD I cut them off." Happy Story Hour, kinder-kiddies! But I digress... let's look at what happened when this kook gets all huffy because another child's mother read a story from a book about Chanukah ("Mr. Cook" is the school principal, BTW):

Mr. Cook stated that Gershon’s Monster is a story related to Jewish culture and the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah is not a religious writing and is available in the Culberston Elementary School Library along with many books about other holidays, including Christian holidays.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE WITCHES??????


Mrs. Reilly offered the Plaintiff the opportunity to read aloud from several children’s stories within her classroom, including some about Halloween.

Would those be the books in the library, which includes books on Christian holidays? Would Mrs. Reilly have said something like "you can pick any book from the library, ma'am," and these FUCKING LIARS WHO CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS turned that into a "Bible Bad, Halloween Good" headline on every religious nutcase website? I'm not certain. Who can tell? Anyway, I just want to point out a few more things that this FUCKING LYING BITCH WITH A DOOMED UGLY CHILD made up for the lawsuit:

By way of further answer, it is denied that any student – or parent – was ever allowed to read aloud a book about Judaism to the kindergarten class as part of the “All About Me” week classroom exercise. To the contrary, no student – or parent – ever read aloud or was allowed to read aloud any book about Judaism under such circumstances. By way of further answer, it is denied that any student – or parent – was ever allowed to teach the kindergarten class the dreidel game as part of the “All About Me” week classroom exercise. To the contrary, no student – or parent – ever taught or was allowed to teach the kindergarten class the dreidel game under such circumstances. By way of further answer, it is denied that any student – or parent – was ever allowed to place the Star of David on the monthly calendar as part of the “All About Me” week classroom exercise. To the contrary, no student – or parent – ever placed or was allowed to place the Star of David on the monthly calendar under such circumstances.

It goes on and on and on ad nauseum ... but let me throw in just a few more nuggets before closing:

By way of further answer, it is denied that Wesley showed to any school officials any alleged signs of frustration about going to school. To the contrary, Wesley did not show to any school officials any alleged signs of frustration about going to school. By way of further answer, it is denied that Mrs. Reilly told Wesley that it was bad to read the Bible. To the contrary, Mrs. Reilly never told Wesley that it was bad to read the Bible.

To be fair, they denied a lot of the claim, but did uphold it in part:

4.3 Admitted in part, denied in part. It is admitted that Plaintiff, Donna Kay Busch, was a parent of Wesley Busch, a pupil at Culbertson Elementary School. The remainder of the allegations in the paragraph are denied.


And what would a OneNewsNow article be without fabulous reader comments?

I hope the parents win this case. It is so silly, so ridiculous, when school authorities will accept any other religion or foolishness except Christianity. The schools and public places made their greatest mistakes when they refused to allow the 10 commandments. Now kids can steal, cheat, lie, etc., because nothing is forbidden except the moral standards of the Bible

I immediately told my children that while they were at school, they were allowed to covet their neighbor's wife.

The Holy Bible states that in the very last days most of the world will be into drugs and witchcraft. It uses the word sorceries which is translated two ways for two meanings....pharmakia (Greek) for pharmacy or drugs and witchcraft is the other translated word. If they are determined to go to hell, who can stop them?

Exactly my point. You can't stop 'em, you can only hope to contain 'em. That's why we all do eightballs as a family every Sunday.

I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN THIS WORLD THE WAY IT IS GOING...AND I BELIEVE ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE ..IT WILL BECOME WORST WITH GROSS DARKNESS UPON THE PEOPLE..TO ME THIS SAYS..WITHOUT GOD THERE IS NO LIGHT...ONLY GROSS DARKNESS. THIS IS WHAT THE LIBERALS OF TODAY WANT...GOD GONE....AND WE CAN ALREADY SEE HIS[GODS] HAND OF PROTECTION PULLING BACK UP INTO HEAVEN

That God sure is sensitive. But this might be the best comment ever, ever, ever, ever:

if the constitution is still the law of the land how can one book have a higher place than another.

Irony never was the strong suit of the Christian right.

Why are we surprised? We all know that fundamentalist weenies are unable to tell the difference between fact and fiction. Sheeeit! All you have to do is look at their theology.

Ever noticed, BTW, that OneNewsNow conducts "polls" every few days to try to get a feel for what the troglodytes think? Well, supposedly to get a handle on what they think --- but my guess is that their neocon handlers just want to check on how effective that week's propaganda has been.

HW - I am certainly never surprised by anything I see on ONN. Frankly, I view their site as desperately in need of creative assistance, and that's where this site comes in.

I used to comment on their site, and got a lot of respectfully dissenting opinions through ... then, all of a sudden, commenting went dark for about 5 days and since then, the moderator hasn't let anything through with even a hint of disagreement. That's when I figured it was time for this blog.

I'm guessing at some point, they will use the polls recursively, creating "news" from the polls that they push out via multiple web channels ("Larry Craig's resignation was accepted today, despite the fact that a September poll showed that 73% of ONN readers believe that anonymous toilet blow jobs are okay as long as you vote to demonize gays and laugh at them when they commit suicide."

It's a pretty simple formula ... if you track the comments on their site, the articles that attract the most are the ones where homos are treated nicely and the items demonstrating anti-Christian bigotry. They eat that shit up with spoons.

Thanks for dropping by - come back anytime!
