Political enigma

21 09 2012

There are two groups of people who I don’t understand, Women and Gays who vote Republican, and I think this equally applies to the Australian LNP.

I find the treatment of Women by both parties utterly appalling, as no government anywhere should have any power to tell a Woman what she should do with her own body, That is something which should remain completely up to her.

And Gay people, especially those who might want to marry at some stage. Denied all rights from the conservatives, who most likely hope they’ll go to church more often and “Pray away the Gay” rather than stand up for their own personal feelings, which are not doing any harm to anyone.

When I see either of these groups voting Republican, it’s rather like coming across someone banging their heads against a brick wall and complaining that it hurts.

Stop doing it?

Wolfie!

A Good Christian

6 09 2012

Something came up on twitter about good christians, that is an oxymoron in my book.

Centuries ago, the religious would have burnt people like myself at the stake for saying God doesn’t exist, and I reckon they’d still try it on if it was legal… people are still killed and tortured for more progressive thoughts in some other countries even today.

As it is, they’re still trying to stop gay people from having a reasonable life, medical advances such as Stem Cell technology which may stop diseases such as cancer and parkinsons, and interfering in things which they have no business in holding back.

These are quite often the very same lot who deny climate change, but are perfectly happy thinking that burning bushes can talk, snakes can pervert women and a bloke can build a boat which holds over four million animals.

There is no “Good Christian”





Whatever happened to Gloria Jean?

Gloria Jeans and Hillsong suffer bizarre coincidental website glitch

Hillsong Conference is a massive fundie meeting run annually by the controversial Hillsong cult. This year, it’s at the Allphones Arena and it costs a mere $279 to attend. A church service at such a bargain basement price clearly needs very generous sponsors to help it scrape by.

Here is what Hillsong’s generous list of sponsors looked like four days ago:

And here’s what it looks like now:

Seems like some kind of glitch has scrubbed all mention of Gloria Jean’s coffee from poor Hillsong’s website! Good job I was able to preserve it. After all, Gloria Jeans’s generous contribution to the rabidly anti-gay group might have gone unnoticed!

I’m sure it’s a pure coincidence that this dreadful glitch happened the day after Gloria Jeans was embarrassingly revealed to be funding another notorious gay-hate group.

Odd, that.

ENOUGH !

14 05 2012
We are living in 2012, and who is holding us back from the future?
Right wing religious buffoons.
 
We can’t have freedom to love who we want,
We can’t have stem cells which may fix a plethora of disease
Scientists are apparently stupid
and Climate Change isn’t happening
 
I had cancer in 2005, and I know very well where I’d be if I’d had a horde of priests and nuns praying that I’d get better, instead of the medical science and skill which did in fact make me better.
 
I refuse to give the religious one moment of my time, I have put a sign on my letterbox which reads “No Religious Propaganda” did they ignore it? Of course! Because I’m so in need of the word of God or something.
 
I tear it up and put it straight in the bin.
 
I have fought and argued with you dinosaurs over and over, and all you do is quote passages from your pathetic book.
 
Well no more, 

You’re a Christian?

Fuck off.
 
Wolfie!




Heaven rejected.

5 03 2011

I was thinking about dying and going to Heaven, and realising that it could possibly be one of the least desirable places ever.

If it’s full of Fred Niles, and Republicans, and Christians and Tea-partiers, and Homophobic bigots such as the Westboro Church, and people who think they’re so much better than the rest of us, that one day God will hoover them up into heaven where they will spend eternity in the sky, while the strains of Hillsong or Justin Beiber waft endlessly and painfully through the clouds…

Then I think, if I wake up after death and find that I’m invited beyond the pearly gates, that I’ll tell St. Peter thanks but no thanks.

That I’ve had enough of that on Earth and I don’t really need or deserve to spend eternity in Hell.

Then I’ll fly out into the universe and hopefully, eventually, find my place within it.

What’s that St. Peter?

Yes of course you may come too, I won’t tell.

Wolfie!
