THE GATHERING STORM
I don’t believe in making fun of religious people, but this is a parody of actors who were pretending to be religious people . . . pretending to be threatened by allowing same-sex civil marriage – a threat they need not feel, since civil marriage would still allow churches to discriminate against whomever they believe the Lord calls upon them to discriminate against.
That’s how it should be. Separation of church and state.
[For any who missed it, here is the actual ad; here is a rebuttal; and two minutes into this clip you can see some of the actors auditioning. Oh, gosh – and this just in: here is Steven Colbert’s parody! ]
A GATHERING OF TEA PARTY PROTESTORS
To understand the thinking of those whose taxes were cut by Obama but who held tax protests anyway, don’t miss this video.
OBAMA – NOT BORN HERE
And here is a sort of prequel from the same filmmaker: tax protesters who believe this Hawaii birth certification is fake, President Obama was born in Africa. (Somehow, the Republican governor of Hawaii has just played along?)
Enjoy the clips and your weekend.
Quote of the Day
Total abstinence is so excellent a thing that it cannot be carried to too great an extent. In my passion for it I even carry it so far as to totally abstain from total abstinence itself.~Mark Twain
