    Jeebus fookin Keerist on a slimy fuckin crutch. Here’s the christianist equivalent of the above video:

    Laney said representatives of all three churches have been “very clear” that they don’t want to be “guilty by association” with First Congregational and its inclusiveness of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people,

    So they’re no longer going to stop their meals for the needy program.

    “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

    Way to go, haters! Of course, Aramaic is tough so the big guy probably really said “no fags” and John jotted it down wrong.

    Who was the guy at the beginning of the clip, doing the intro? I feel like I should recognize him from the mists of my late-70′s pre-adolescence. Anyone know?

    The part at the end (yes, I sat through the whole thing–kill me now) with Richard Dawson (Post-Hogan’s Heroes, but pre-Family Feud, I think) was also hilarious. He couldn’t even bother pretending that was anything but a “Genesis-Meets-Gentle-Giant-Meets-Uriah-Heep-and-They-All-drink-Bleach” fiasco.

    Hasn’t this senseless war gone on long enough?

    Oh, and re: the churches, haven’t you guys read your Bible? Mark 12. Look it up.

    28. And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?

    29. And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

    30. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

    31. And the second is like, namely this, No poofters. There is none other commandment greater than these.

    I see over at that other blog that shall remain nameless they have gone political and dragged out some muck about St Ronnie. Personally I think they misfired there. Certainly any of the self styled right-wing rap acts would have been more deadly or perhaps the Right Brothers or whatever it was they were called. Now I just want say that we do have this if we decide to resort to child warriors.
