Facebook Case Files IV

Do you want to play a game?

How about a game of chess?

No. How about a game of thermonuclear shut-the-fuck-up?

Gun nuts trying to equate every fucking situation with the bullshit lie that Liberals want to take your guns is really getting fucking tiresome.

After the Boston Marathon bombing:

I have to admit, it is pretty difficult to explain yourself if you’re just repeating or paraphrasing idiocy:

Just add ‘I hope they learn guns are good’ and it’s the same.

"I'm not claiming to be trained in dealing with criminals or terrorists..."

No, certainly not. You just posted that picture that directly compares you to agencies that deal with criminals and terrorists because fuck me, right?

Whenever I call out someone on the right for their bullshit, they just casually deny saying what they expressly said. Even though I or anyone else can scroll up and read what they wrote. It's like the only thing that matters is the very last thing they said. Never mind the countless contradictory circles they talk themselves in while desperately attempting to justify what that tiny, suppressed section of their brain KNOWS, deep down, is completely wrong. Their verbal contortions remind me of Kirk explaining how to play Fizbin. No matter their explanation makes no sense and they're making it up as they go along - they win.

4. Obamacare won’t affect the amount of medical malpractice. No health care plan could.

Because under no circumstances do guns kill the people that they kill.

Guns don’t kill people. Not knowing that guns kill people kills people. If only people knew.

This was a picture that the Richard Dawkins Foundation For Reason And Science posted. I couldn't resist.

Apparently, we're not supposed to obey the laws of the United States of America when we don't like the accused. Maybe if he just stalked and murdered an unarmed kid, then he'd be considered a hero.

 This is a wonderful page. You all should go over there and troll them.

Transcript of John Fugelsang's commentary:

From the April 30, 2013, edition of “Viewpoint.”

John Fugelsang:

This week Jason Collins became the first active NBA player to come out of the closet as gay. I know some of y’all think that was Dennis Rodman, but he was just the first to come out as confused.

All over the Web our right-wing troll friends accused all nonhomophobes of hypocrisy — this one was retweeted over 16,000 times today:
@TeamAthleteLife: Tim Tebow: “I’m a Christian.” Media: “Keep it to yourself.” Jason Collins: “I’m gay.” Media: “You’re an inspiration!” #idontunderstand

Well, since you don’t understand, here’s the difference: In America, gay people have been persecuted for being gay just a wee bit more than Christians have been persecuted for being Christian. Jason Collins has had to hide something personal about himself for most of his career, and Tim Tebow takes something very personal about himself — his faith — and flaunts it in stadiums full of thousands of people.

In Matthew 6:5, Jesus tells us not to trust the guys who show off their faith in public and we should pray in private. So the only way this comparison is fair would be if every time Jason Collins scored on the rebound, he made out with some guy on the basketball court.

The most controversial criticism of Jason Collins, however, comes, of course, from ESPN analyst Chris Broussard, who said, “If you’re openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits. It says that, you know, that’s a sin. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality, whatever it may be, I believe that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. So I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I don’t think the Bible would characterize them as a Christian.”

Now, I think Chris Broussard’s generally a good guy most of the time. And to be fair, he was asked for his personal opinion on-air on a network that knew how he felt. He supports Jason Collins’ coming out — this is traditionally the fallback of many biblical literalists who don’t really know what the hell they’re talking about.

But a lot of folks are upset and demanding ESPN fire him. This backlash has spawned a greater backlash of homophobes asking, “What’s the problem with Chris Broussard expressing his opinions?”

Here’s the problem.

Personally, I support Chris Broussard’s right to say whatever he wants — but if his homophobic lifestyle involves using the Bible to judge other people who have never bothered him or anybody else, then I believe Chris Broussard is walking in open rebellion to God and Jesus Christ.

See, I’d like to tell Chris Broussard the good news: being a Christian means you get to drop the homophobia — because Christ never said a thing about being gay, nobody follows Leviticus, and St. Paul’s letters are seriously mistranslated and taken out of context. Like the Second Amendment.

But I can’t say that. Because, you see, Chris works on Saturday. And according to the Bible that’s the Sabbath, which must be kept holy. So if this guy works on the Sabbath, that’s breaking one of the Ten Commandments, so I would not characterize that person as a Christian. And since Jesus never mentioned gay people and he acts like he did, that’s bearing false witness — another commandment!

By the way, guys hooking up with guys? Didn’t make God’s top 10.
Oh, and the Book of Leviticus? Which calls gay sex an abomination? Also forbids eating pork and shellfish. Just guessing, but I think Chris Broussard has probably enjoyed both of those in his life, which makes him as bad as George Michael night at the Ramrod Bathhouse.

Add to that how Jesus said in Matthew 7:1 to “judge not, lest ye also be judged,” how he said in Mark to “treat each other as we would want to them to treat us”? Well, (Broussard) has just committed open rebellion against Jesus.

Kind of ironic that because of his anti-gay comments, we know him by his fruits.
So what’s the problem with Chris Broussard expressing his opinions? The fact that they’re his opinions but he claims they’re also the opinions of Jesus.

Because being gay is natural. Condemning gay is a lifestyle choice.
