Unhappy Marriage

It's been a while since my last post, and this one will be a bit of a "drive by," but I was amused by one of OneNewsNow's posts - and more specifically, the comments they allowed to be posted along with it. Basically, Joe Moderator is letting a lot of shit through that used to be blocked ... they ran the following story on the Decline and Fall of Marriage in The Western World:

Zogby International and AOL surveyed more than 7,000 Americans in that age bracket and found 44 percent who said marriage is not necessary in order to have a committed, fulfilling, life-long relationship. Mike McManus, president of Marriage Savers -- a group that works to help churches reduce divorce rates, finds that number shocking.

"People who are married live longer, they're healthier, they're happier; they're wealthier," he points out. "A man who's single, for whatever reason, will live ten years less than a married man; a woman, about four years less."

Most of the survey respondents also said that they would prefer living together before getting married. "Unfortunately, the marriage message just doesn't seem to be getting out to the public," continues McManus. "And what we have is a reflection of Hollywood morals ... in the culture."

Oh, that awful L.A. suburb is at it again, and God's Marriage is once again the victim. Not content to simply make overly dramatic statements portending the demise of our cultural heritage at the hands of the Jews, OneNewsNow also goes on to horribly distort facts and figures from a peer-reviewed study:

But research by Rutgers University's National Marriage Project indicates that couples who live together before marriage are 46 percent more likely to divorce and significantly more likely to experience domestic violence within their relationships.

Wow, that would be a blockbuster ... if only it were true. here's what the 2002 study ACTUALLY says:

Children living with cohabiting couples tend to be disadvantaged compared to those living with married couples. Prominent reasons are that cohabiting couples have a much higher breakup rate than married couples, a lower level of household income, and a much higher level of child abuse and domestic violence.

This says NOTHING about couples who cohabit, then marry, then divorce ... it just says that couples who cohabit are more likely to sever their relationships than those who marry. Shocking. Oh, and you can search marriage.rutgers.edu all you want ... the term "46 percent" appears four times, and only to refer to survey results about attitudes toward marriage. So, I'll have to assume that, like almost every other citation on their "news" site, OneNewsNow just made that shit up.

Of course, I began by saying that I was amused by the comments attached to the "article." First, let's review those made by The Usual Suspects:

This is so sad for America.

The reason that married couples live longer and are married is becuase they are committed to each other; and they made this commitment verbally and visibly before friends, family, and God. Yes, this is unpopular to say, but marriage is to be for one mate, for life; with only a single exception (adultry). Adultry is grounds for divorce, but once divorced; remarriage is not an option.

Check it out in our instruction book - it is all there.

I think if you look closely, Ed says that the reason married couples are married is that they are married. Also, I thought that "Adultry" was the name of that bald dude who lost on American Idol and now he makes millions doing a bad impression of the shitty band "Creed"?

The sin of fornication carries its own consequences, one of which is an undermining of the relationship it falsely unites. This is why marriage is meant to be with one mate, man-to-woman for time and eternity.

Posted by Clinton Jones

Clinton, every time I fornicate, I try to send a message loud and clear: I am undermining any relationship we could possibly have, now get your ass out of here and pay for your own taxi.

Wow, it is a shame how we have come to a day where we are willing to so boldly tell our God & creater that His way does not work, and that we know better than He! Of course, if one finds themself in a physically abusive relationship they need to move out. However, in God's Word we find strong words as to the issue of sexual imorality which includes adultery. Thank God He did however give us His Son, and we can find forgivness for our sins upon repentance.

Posted by Rusty

First of all, I want to thank Rusty for giving permission to those who have been physically abused to leave their relationships. If only those who suffer from emotional and mental anguish at the hands of their spouses could benefit similarly from Rusty's largesse ... what a beautiful world it would be. I do want to point out to Rusty that even though Jesus did get it on with that whore Mary Magdalene, it probably wasn't that great. Can you imagine anyone getting on their knees and talking dirty to the Son of God? "Fuck me like a sodomite, that's right you filthy Jew - fuck me harder in my Holiest of Holies"? I didn't think so (never mind the implications of "who's your daddy"). So perhaps we might "know" better than "He" does on this matter after all.

Ted - Did you make that up yourself? You should post that to your MySpace page. I think that the guy from Georgia Satellites might have a beef with you over who came up with it first, though:

Okay, enough of the fundies. Here are some honest-to-goodness dissenting views, as allowed by the mod:

44%? That's a pretty big group. All goes to show, things change, people change, opinions change. Is it the end of the world? I don't think so.

Posted by Denis

Not a complete story here or at least not out here in the real world. What about those of us that did divorce an adulterer? We raised children alone, scratched pennies to keep them fed and still have utilities so truthfully marriage was nothing but accepting evilness until you finally stopped it. I was raised to believe in those fairy tales and tried to pass them on to my own children as well - but in the real world no one will ever put me in that position again by signing my life away.

Posted by Sandy

The studies that show the difference in expected lifespan do not use the term married, what was studied was people in long term relationships as compared to those that are not in long term relationships.

Posted by Russell

Why is this an issue? If you want to get married - do so. If your neighbor doesn't - leave him alone. Keep your dark-age zealot-ism to yourself.

Posted by Really?

Whoa! If they're gonna allow stuff like THAT to get posted, I may have to shut down my blog for good. They even allowed a few posts featuring Satan's wicked humor:

The Evil Solution

This is Denise Martin:

Denise is the self-pitying, femulleted "Survivor" contestant who told everyone that she was a $7/hour lunch lady, and when she got back home after the show's taping wrapped up, the meanie-bad school district she worked for demoted her to janitor duty. The school district received hate mail from all over the world - thousands of emails and letters. "Why would you persecute this poor woman who obviously doesn't have enough money for a mirror?" and the like.

Of course, it turns out that Denise is a lying cunt, she requested a PROMOTION to full-time custodian (paying her more than double than her lunch-ladying) BEFORE she left to tape the show, and the school district granted her EVERY ACCOMMODATION POSSIBLE so she could compete on "Survivor" and jump right back into her job upon her return.

It turns out that - surprise - the great unwashed masses generally fail to investigate situations thoroughly before they fire off angry emails decrying this world's horrible injustices. Such is the case with OneNewsNow's braintrust of readers, who weighed in on the curioous case of Nathaniel Abraham:

Nathaniel Abraham is a well-known biologist who was hired by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution because of his expertise on Zebra fish. However, in 2004 Abraham lost his job shortly after he mentioned in a casual conversation with his supervisor that he did not believe in evolution.

In an interview with The Boston Globe, Abraham stated that his supervisor appeared "angry" after the conversation. He claims he was then given the ultimatum to believe evolution or lose his job. Abraham is now suing Woods Hole for half a million dollars for violating his civil rights.

Ignoring for a moment that Nathaniel is actually a "completely unknown" biologist (must have just been a typo) ... THOSE BASTARDS! How could they? Here's some righteous indignation from the ONN choir:

Go get 'em!

I wonder why there is not a public outcry of bigotry on behalf of this evolutionist employer?

You know full well there would have been national attention if the roles had been reversed...

Posted by Chris G

Reversed how? An evolutionary scientist applies for a job at the Creationist Museum and his application is declined? Whoa, there's some page one schizznit. Right on, Chris!

So, we have another Gallileo that refuses to throw his brain out the window and accept a flat earth as it were. I pray to the God that created us all that this man wins every dollar and more. Evolution is the Evil Solution to creation.

Posted by Golf Pro

When the hell did Galileo get co-opted by evangelical Christians? That's like when conservative Republicans invoke Abraham Lincoln. "We are the party of LINCOLN, who fought to have slaves freed from people whose political beliefs mirror mine exactly..."

If we're being logical and legal about this and not throwing around junk science, there is absolutely no evidence to support the "theory of evolution" at all. The more scientists try to prove the evolution theory, the more they prove the Bible is correct. Them's the facts, man. Get used to it.

Posted by Sharon Bolling

SHIT! I have been pWned! into submission by Sharon Bolling's airtight argument and mad rhetorical skillz! I give up.

What we see today is the same DNA found in humans for thousands of years. What we do see is that DNA revealing more of its complexity. God made us capable of surviving our environment. What makes evolution such a problem is that the claims of clarity are not clear at all. In fact some are out right stretches of the imagination. And then it’s called science?

Posted by mike

Tell Jerry Falwell that God made humans capable of evolving and see what kind of response you get - he'll call you a homo and damn you to hell. Oh wait he can't - that fat racist fuck is dead.

Regardless, I have to say that I have not seen a lyrically crafted turn of phrase like "the claims of clarity are not clear at all" since Sammy Hagar crooned "only time will tell if we stand the test of time." Fooking genius, Mike!

Again we see discrimination because someone chooses to disagree with "Unproven Science- "Evolution"....

Posted by Steven

Ah, yes ... discrimination. Well, if we are to believe everything that ONN has told us and take it on faith that they OMITTED NOTHING ... perhaps you're correct, Steven. Let's see if they left anything out:

In a 2004 letter to Abraham, his boss, Woods Hole senior scientist Mark E. Hahn, wrote that Abraham said he did not want to work on "evolutionary aspects" of the National Institutes of Health grant for which he was hired, even though the project clearly required scientists to use the principles of evolution in their analyses and writing.


He was hired by Hahn's marine biology lab in March 2004 because of his expertise working with zebra fish and in toxicology and developmental biology, according to court documents. He did not tell anyone his creationist views before being hired. Hahn's lab, according to its website, studies how aquatic animals respond to chemical contaminants by examining ". . . mechanisms from a comparative/evolutionary perspective."


But on Nov. 17, Hahn asked him to resign, pointing out in the letter that Abraham should have known of evolution's centrality to the project because it was evident from the job advertisement and grant proposal.

". . . You have indicated that you do not recognize the concept of biological evolution and you would not agree to include a full discussion of the evolutionary implications and interpretations of our research in any co-authored publications resulting from this work," Hahn wrote in the letter, which the commission provided to the Globe. "This position is incompatible with the work as proposed to NIH and with my own vision of how it should be carried out and interpreted."


That's a bit like applying for a job as a basketball player and then saying you don't believe in the theory that balls bounce. It's like getting a job as a priest, and then saying you don't believe in Jesus. It's like applying for a job as a crack whore, and then telling your pimp that you don't believe in swallowing three loads at once - in all cases YOU'RE FUCKING FIRED.

So, easy on the "discrimination" claims, you dumb-assed backwater hillbilly dunces. Next time, before you write that angry email or post that inflammatory comment, you might want to do your research and find out if the "biologist" you're supporting has more in common with an ugly skank custodian than Anita Hill.

Headliners and Commenters

Usually the commenters on OneNewsNow provide the comedy, but the site's content producers have apparently decided to join in on the fun. Not content with mere obfuscation, now they're engaging in full-blown, tabloid-style "news" creation. Without looking at the site, guess which one of these stories is "fake" (although they're all 'fake' by some standard, I mean "which one doesn't actually appear on OneNewsNow.com):

Pro-lifer attacked -- then threatened with arrest
Rusty Pugh
December 14, 2007

During a protest at a Hillary Clinton campaign stop in Fort Madison, Iowa, last week, a pro-life activist was attacked by a man wielding a club. Eyewitnesses say that police responding to the incident threatened to arrest the pro-lifers if they did not immediately leave the public sidewalk. The incident was captured on video.

The group Missionaries to the Pre-born was protesting Senator Clinton (D-New York), a supporter of abortion, in advance of the January 3 Iowa caucuses. Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says a man in a pickup drove up, then attacked pro-lifer Dan Holman.

"He was attacked with a club," she recalls. "He called for the police officer who was across the street watching the situation, and the police officer came over and ordered him [Holman] to leave and threatened to arrest and jail him on the spot if he did not leave."

Okay ... we have pro-lifers assaulted with clubs, unnamed cops not doing anything about it, and it's all caught on video (which is apparently under lock and key). It's a start.

Legal case seen as 'backdoor' attempt to get civil unions recognized in Mississippi
Allie Martin
December 14, 2007

An attorney with Liberty Counsel says an unusual legal case could be a backdoor attempt to get legal recognition of civil unions in the state of Mississippi.

The case pits against each other two women who were "partners" in a homosexual relationship. The plaintiff claims that her former partner verbally agreed to give her an interest in real property. However, the pair lived in Florida at the time of the alleged oral agreement, and now both live in Mississippi.

This time, we have references to "backdoor attempt" and "oral agereement" in a story about godless homos. I wonder if Allie Martin knows that both of those phrases are actual porn titles ("Oral Agreement 6: The Swallows of San Juan Capistrano" is my favorite in the series). Hmmm ... maybe Allie IS aware:

Pro-family activist warns of potential rise in 'mobile porn'
Allie Martin
December 13, 2007

According to Juniper Research, revenues from mobile adult services are poised to approach $3.5 billion by 2010. It was also concluded in the report that as cell phone technology advances, porn will become easier to obtain. But Pat Trueman, special counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), says concerned consumers can still limit the reach of mobile porn.


The ADF special counsel points out that former Congressman Steve Largent is president and CEO of CTIA-The Wireless Association -- an organization which represents all sectors of wireless communications. Largent, a family advocate and former member of the U.S. House, has vowed to do all he can to keep porn from becoming widely available on mobile phones.

Trueman also suggests that parents regulate their child's use of the phone. He says many children send pornographic emails to each other. "It's a regular thing in high school and college, [and] I fear it's a regular thing in grade school," says the attorney. He urges parents to remain vigilant while at the same time laying down usage rules.

Good ol' #80 is trying to take away my cellphone porn?

Good thing, too. Those grade-school kids are constantly cc'ing me with their pornographic emails of Dora the Explorer getting railed by Boots the Monkey. And don't even get me started on those ones featuring "The Map" ("WHO'S the map? Say it, bitch ... that's right - I'M THE MAP, I'M THE MAP ... I'M THE MAP").

Ex-Police Officer Stakes Out for Illegals
Rusty Pugh
December 12, 2007

Retired New Mexico state police officer Randy Gruden has a new "stakeout" - he volunteers with the Minuteman Society to find illegal immigrants and turn them in to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). But Randy's methods are somewhat controversial among the people in this small border town. Randy poses as a "john" seeking a prostitute, and when he receives an "offer", he turns the offender over to his former colleagues.

"99% of the prostitutes in this town are illegals, so not only are they breaking the law by being here, they're destroying our town by offering illicit sex for money," says Gruden. And the figures bear his statement out - in the past three months, 28 women here have been arrested for prostitution, and 24 of them have been determined to be illegal aliens.

Oof. It's a wild world.

So, which one is it?

Down Wit Da AIDSizzledizzle

Pop culture sland always has a shelf life. Nobody calls anything "groovy" anymore, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone scoring a touchdown saying "slap me five," and no self-respecting racist would ever call a black person a "darkie." Unfortunately, corporate types LOVE to integrate cultural slang into their product names and advertising campaigns ("this'll be really hip and fab for the kids!"), and sometimes they wind up stuck trying to sell a laughable anachronism. The comprehensive sex-ed program "Get Real about AIDS" seems well on its way down this path ... the program was named in 1992, at a time when we had yet to quiero Taco Bell, no dudes were getting Dells, and many people believed that Flavor Flav might actually have contributed something of substance to Public Enemy. Fifteen years later, the phrase "Get Real" has somehow remained somewhat inter-generationally relevant, but it's hanging by the thinnest of threads.

Perhaps it's time to rename "Get Real about AIDS" now that it has been thrust into the public sphere. As our pals at OneNewsNow.com report:

Pastor says superintendent doesn't want sex-ed curriculum revealed
A Florida pastor says a public school superintendent in St. Lucie County has purposely kept parents from finding out about the sexually graphic nature of sex-education curriculum for the district. The school board in St. Lucie County, Florida will hold a public forum Saturday, December 8, on the proposed sex-ed curriculum called "Get Real About AIDS." But Pastor Brian Longworth, associate pastor of Covenant Tabernacle World Outreach Center in Port St. Lucie, says the public forum is not being advertised or promoted. He believes superintendent Michael Lannon is hiding the curriculum's content from parents because of its sexually graphic nature, which Lannon maintains is meant to promote abstinence.

First of all, do yourself a favor and re-read that paragraph. First of all, there is a PUBLIC FORUM scheduled to discuss this curriculum ... that forum will be held in THREE WEEKS ... and Brian Longworth "believes" that the Superintendent is "hiding" the content of the curriculum on the basis of lack of advertising. Never mind the complete last sentence of the paragraph:

He believes superintendent Michael Lannon is hiding the curriculum's content from parents because of its sexually graphic nature, which Lannon maintains is meant to promote abstinence.

Apparently, Longworth is saying that Superintendent Lannon says that sexually graphic material promotes abstinence. I'm guessing that Mr. Longworth's comprehension problems extend to the world of vocabulary, and he may not understand the meanings of the words "libel" and "slander." But I digress. Of course, the article takes the typical "inflame and obfuscate" road and then makes a right turn on Propaganda Highway:

Pastor Longworth wonders if the curriculum is so good, why it is being kept from parents. He says if the school district thinks that highly of the curriculum, district officials should be proud and stand up and say it is a condom-based curriculum. "He's being deceptive, trying to trick parents into thinking that this is something that they will like, and not releasing the curriculum in time for them to review it."

Just in case "Pastor" Longworth wants area parents to check out the curriculum, I have a few web resources for him:


Also, Google returns a few billion results for "Get Real About AIDS," but in case Longworth's backwater Florida no-teeth half-retarded parishoners are too poor to afford the Internets because they've been fucking since they were 12 and have dozens of illegitimate children strewn across the deep south who all suffer from various deformations due to high incidences of chlamydia, syphillis, gonorrhea, hepatitis, HPV, and fetal alcohol syndrome ... well, here's a sampling of what they would find:

Overview of the Curriculum
The Get Real about AIDS high school version is a 14-lesson curriculum uses entertaining activities, discussions, roleplays, simulations and videos to give teens the knowledge and skills needed to reduce their risk of HIV infection. Although Get Real about AIDS is an HIV prevention curriculum, it addresses sexual risk-taking behaviors related to pregnancy prevention, including: delaying sexual activity, using condoms, being monogamous if sexually active, and avoiding risky situations.

Curriculum Objectives
At the completion of this program, youth will:

Reduce their risk of becoming infected with HIV.
Delay sexual activity.
If sexually active, use good judgement by abstaining from drug use, using condoms correctly, getting tested for HIV, and being monogamous.
Not share needles.

Get Real about AIDS consists of the following 14 lessons:
Lesson 1: Teenage Vulnerability to HIV
Lesson 2: Transmission of HIV
Lesson 3: All about AIDS and Other STDs
Lesson 4: Delaying Sex
Lesson 5: Preventing HIV Infection
Lesson 6: Limits
Lesson 7: The Refusal Skill, Day 1
Lesson 8: The Refusal Skill, Day 2
Lesson 9: Peer Messages
Lesson 10: Using the Refusal Skill Proactively
Lesson 11: Becoming Comfortable Using The Refusal Skill
Lesson 12: The Refusal Skill for Self-Control
Lesson 13: The Community Meeting
Lesson 14: Transfer

Never mind that on August 29, more than a few peeople already had their public fill of this issue:

At Tuesday's four-hour School Board workshop, the board did not vote on any changes to the current curriculum but listened to 35 people speak for and against the changes.

In fact, the audience of more than 150 people at the Dolly Hand Center on the campus of Palm Beach Community College came from throughout the Glades, with smatterings of folks from the east coast of Palm Beach County and included some Martin and St. Lucie County, as well. Hastings and a panel of area agency leaders provided current information that addressed the healthcare needs of people infected with HIV/AIDS and the latest educational programs aimed at preventing the disease.

Apparently, rather than distribute this information to his "parishoners," Longworth has been very busy writing his own material:

Through his church's website, the group Youth for America -- of which the pastor is a co-founder -- has gathered more than 3,750 petitions in opposition to the sex-ed curriculum.

WHOA! Once again, OneNewsNow has located a movement with an ASTONISHING raw number of petitions. Now, imagine that 100 people signed each of these 3,750 petitions ... that's like 8.9 BILLION signatures, right? Fucking impressive. Anyway, most of these people apparently signed these petitions after they viewed this information about the hidden curriculum posted on "Pastor Longworth's church website. I guess that Longworth's claims about a campaign of secrecy are grounded in the fact that nobody visits his Church's shitty-assed, designed-for-the-Lynx-browser-in-1993 website. Hey Bryan - fantastic unreadable animated GIF of a watchtower beacon in the top left banner. Perhaps you can work in a reference to "Where's The Beef?" so that everyone feels like they really did need a time machine to view your ghastly site (notice how I worked that "Pop Culture shelf life" theme back in? I'm good).

Anyway, what would a ONN article be without, as Fantod points out, a display of ONNanism from the dedicated readers:

Do you ever wonder why schools today cannot teach children how to read,write and general math skills but believe adamantly they can teach them about sex? Stupid is as stupid does. In this case it is the people who vote for the DEMONcrats that do not have a clue. It is simple, the devil wants our children. When will this nation turn from our wicked ways and humble ourselves and seek GOD'S face and pray for our nation and our families. This Thanksgiving can be for real. The GOD of ABRAHAM, ISACC and JACOB is waiting for you to ask JESUS into your heart. Don't wait. Please

somehow i feel this person who wants to keep sex education content secret should be investigated for child sex violations. i think you will find that he is more than a educator to children.

Posted by paul ruppert

My my ... you know, I wouldn't mind the unfounded accusations of molestation so much if they weren't peppered with grammatical errors. This is an EDUCATOR we're talking about - let's try to be a bit more formal.

Ever hear or read the story of Sodom and Gomorrah? Those men in that city were so perverted they even tried to molest the Holy Angels of God. After being struck blind by those Angels, they FELT for the door to Lot's home. That is absolute perversion and enslavement of the spirit and mind. Soon HE comes back to take us out of this corrupted sewer/slime pit. A normal human (at least one) would have immediately gotten to a physician to see about his eyesight. Not this group of Sodomites. Their mind, as today, was below the belt.

Goodness - always with the Sodom and Gomorrah references. Don't these people think of anything else? Do they whack off to that Bible story constantly (or is it just me who does that)?

Gays Reek

Eureka Springs, Arkansas - it's the new Gomorrah. Just take a look at what those heathens are up to now:

It's a little town in Arkansas with a name connected to Christian traditions by virtue of events like The Great Passion Play, and places to visit such as Christ of the Ozarks, the Bible Museum, and Thorncrown Chapel. Now, however, the name of Eureka Springs is also connected to controversy over the homosexual agenda.

In May the town's leadership unanimously approved an ordinance that allows homosexual couples to register as domestic partners, making Eureka Springs the first city in Arkansas to have such a registry.

The registry confers no legal rights upon anyone ... it's just a registry. But much like aerosol paint cans can be a gateway drug to the hard stuff (like Jack Daniels and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), it's simply the first step down a slippery slope (although I doubt many slippery slopes actually have steps):

"It is just a piece of paper that says these two people are in a relationship and are committed to each other," Mayor Wilson said. "That's all." In the opinion of those opposed to the city council's decision, however, that's not all the piece of paper says. It represents a promotion of the homosexual lifestyle.

Rev. Wilson said, "God wants everybody to have the best possible life. Anything that deteriorates from the quality of life, God would like to call us away from that, and I put homosexuality in that context."

Apparently, however, Eureka Springs has already slid WAY down that slope, which is apparently greased with KY (the jelly, not the entire state filled with hillbillies):

There's little doubt that homosexuals play a huge role in the life of Eureka Springs. KTHV said that, of the roughly 2,000 people who live there, about 400 are homosexual. That's a whopping 20 percent of the population -- far in excess of the approximately 2-3 percent of the U.S. population as a whole who are gay or lesbian.

Whoa! And how did they come up with that exact figure of 400? Did they just take everyone's word for it, or did they test empirically? However they arrived at it, that number isn't just a warning, it's a WAR:

As usual, the good readers of OneNewsNow.com have their opinions on the matter. My favorites come from folks whose lives are so sad, that they dream of retirement to a filthy panhandle shack next to a rapist or two:

There was a time when I dreamed of retiring in the Eureka Springs area. I am looking elsewhere to transplant for my retirement. As an Arkansas native, I formerly thought I definitely would retire in Arkansas, but the news of Eureka Springs promoting a domestic partner registry and the state's elected federal leaders' support of the Hate Crimes Bill and ENDA have pretty much ENDAed my plans to return to Arkansas as my home.

I want to retire where I can proudly have my grandchildren visit. I want to live in a communtiy with Christian values.

Posted by Amy

Yeah, Amy. If you can't commit hate crimes, what good is Arkansas?

The following was posted by Linda Flaharty:

Recently we passed through Eureka Springs while we were returning to Oklahoma

Linda, I'm guessing I can stop right there. You had me at Oklahoma. Here's more from the OK state:

Homosexuality is EVIL and no amount of acceptance will ever make it anything else. You might want to try and find where Sodom and Gohmora are today! It was so utterly destroyed that no one knows for sure where it is or existed. We all know the names of Sodom and Gohmora but they arn't on any map. I am afraid that E.S. will end up and avoided forgotten because of this evil.

Lookeba, OK

Oh, I've tried to find them, Jim. Many a night, many a night. I'll keep looking though - perseverance is a virtue.

Wake up peoples. Better band together and stop the communists now or forever stick your sabre in the ground.

Posted by Phillip

First of all, I was unaware of the Marxist/Leninist leanings of homos (it's always an education at ONN). Second, I need to add "stick your sabre in the ground" to my ever-growing list of "euphemisms for ass sex I've never heard before."

And finally:

The absolute worse thing Christians could do is to stay away from Eureka Springs. The best thing they can do is to go to Eureka Springs, support the Christians who live there, pray for the Gay Community, and witness to them. The writer is correct, what a mission field!

Posted by Larry Green

I don't know, Larry ... I worry that after a long, tiring day of witnessing, many otherwise devout Christians will be susceptible to temptation and wind up with a sabre in their backyard.

Hey There, It's Been A While

Believe me, I've been busy ... but I've been keeping up with the OneNewsNow lunatics - their self-loathing (sabotaging of Mike Huckabee), their misplaced anger (particularly toward gays ... which is often just more self-loathing), and their fervent desire to demolish public schools in the U.S.A.

Today's OneNewsNow makes an ardent appeal to their readers' penchant for localism - the idea that the federal government should keep their damn hands off of local matters (of course, the feds can always step in and make laws banning abortion, flag burning and mary-juwanna smoking, but that's DIFFERENT). Here we go...

On Tuesday, voters in Utah defeated the school voucher initiative, thanks -- say supporters of the measure -- to more than $3 million in union funds from mainly out-of-state voucher opponents. Robert Enlow, executive director of the Milton & Rose D. Friedman Foundation, says it is a tragedy that public school teacher's unions sabotaged the program and denied true school choice in order to further their own agenda, and to ensure job security for thousands of public school teachers.

"In fact, this bill would have provided more money to Utah public schools, while at the same time offering more choices to Utah children and families," argues Enlow. "This is an example of where you can have an out-of-state teacher's union -- a national teacher's union -- thwart a local effort, and do it successfully by putting out a bunch of misinformation and lies. And frankly, that's unfortunate for the children of Utah."

But Enlow says the national school-choice movement is strong and will continue to gain momentum. He says such a large group of disaffected people cannot be disregarded forever.

Did you catch that? Let me lay it out for you:

National Teachers Union = BAD
National School Choice Movement = GOOD

But hey, at least this "National School Choice Movement" is a grassroots effort on the part of millions of individuals, all pooling together to make an impact locally, right? And of course, the spokesman in this article is a representative of local interests, right?

Is Indiana close to Utah? Maybe some hoosierkids could take their vouchers and go to Brigham Young University.

Gay 101

What do you get when you mix a gay male teacher with lots of 8-year-olds? A WHOLE LOT OF SEXY - that's what you get.

A California-based pro-family activist is outraged that a San Diego public school teacher is teaching third graders that homosexuality is acceptable, and that a San Diego news website is glorifying the teacher's indoctrination techniques. [...]

"This is a situation where you have a schoolteacher who is absolutely trying to indoctrinate little children who don't have the wherewithal to say 'I don't agree with that. I don't think that's right,'" says Hartline. "We're talking about 8-year-olds, and maybe 9-year-olds, and maybe even as young as 7-year-olds, who don't have any ability to absorb this information that this teacher is putting in their minds, and reject it."

I'll bet this guy is just blowing kids left and right while they salute the flag. Let's check out his Declaration of Indoctrination...

I'm really honest with my kids. ... Once, a couple of fundamentalist parents pulled me aside and said, 'What kinds of things out of left field are you going to be teaching our child?' ... And I said, 'Well, if you're referring to conversations about the gay and lesbian community, I just talk about it in terms of treating everybody with respect." ... Even the fundamentalist parents sign on to that kind of stuff.

WHOA! Slow down there, Rock Hudson. Obviously, you're hell-bent on teaching forcible anal rape. Not like you couldn't work anal rape into interdisciplinary units on The Discovery of the New World, The Pilgrims, The Trail of Tears, The South Before the Civil War, The South During the Civil War, The South After the Civil War, The South Today, World War I, World War II, The Korean War, Vietnam, The American Civil Rights Movement, Iraq ... well, you get the point. Just because anal rape has played an integral role in the American tradition of manifest destiny doesn't mean you should be handing K-Y to hairless pre-pubescent boys who have trouble taking a dump if their log is fatter than a string cheese stick.

I'm gonna guess that OneNewsNow.com readers have something to say about this:

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: if these bozos would be arrested for child enticement this stuff would end in the classroom. What other reason or excuse could any adult give for talking to small children of that age about sexual matters which are NONE of his business, and way too early an age as to his "audience"? At the very least, this guy should be investigated as to his background and activities. I'd bet he's molested children after "indoctrinating" them.
Seems to be the reason for the indoctrination.
What else could it be? That the kids are "intolerant" of homosexuals? They don't even know what sex IS, and shouldn't at that age. That is the parent's job, but when a "teacher" takes it upon himself to preach perversion to little kids, it has nothing to do with his job, but his predilections.

Bill's SAID IT BEFORE and he'll SAY IT AGAIN. Remember that.

As Christians we believe what the bible says about homosexuality. I personally do not teach my child to hate anyone, but a teacher should not be allowed to contradict what a parent teaches as we have the primary responsibility for teaching our children.

Lynda: The Supreme Court ... look into it.

Homosexuality is all about sex - that's it! It's not about lifestyle, it's not about heredity (which they keep looking for and never find), it's not even about love - it's about having sex with someone of the same sex, and that fact alone is enough to not teach kids that young - we don't teach them about sex at that age, their brains are not mature enough to understand the dynamics of human relations.
This bozo teacher is a monster in disguise, the disguise of hatred. Just because we don't agree with his thinking makes it hatred! If that were true this country would have drowned long before the term "civil rights" ever took hold. These homosexual groups like to label us who oppose this "lifestyle" as fearful ("homophobic") and liken us to bigots and racists.
It's about sex! Call it what it is! They won't do that because then the truth about it is exposed... bunch of cockroaches...

"Cockroaches." That's a new one for me.

And also teachers and others of this mentality may have a history child abuse, using pronography, and other unsavory and unChristian practices. It may be possible, by using the internet, or other divices at our disposal, to learn of these and expose these people to the public for what they are: frauds.

Edward, how are you going to use the Internet to track teachers' activities when you can't even operate a Speak 'N Spell?

This teacher needs to apply for a job in Iran. I bet the Iranians will explain it well as they do not have a "GAY" problem in Iran. Just ask Hitler's nephew.

I heard that Mussolini's grand-niece is a rug-licker.

If we are loving Christians, we must warn the gays about the dangers of having same sex attraction. I learned from Conservapedia that sexually transmitted diseases don't occur in heterosexual relationships, only in homosexual relationships. If this is not enough to convince gays to be straight, I don't know what would do it. We need to teach the gays to pray. Its the fault of parents not teaching their children to pray. If they learn to pray, they can not be gay.

Nice try, "Hazel." A little too far over the top to not be outed as a gag response. But close. Close. A little more oblique next time.
