According to the Louisville Courier-Journal. Republican extremist Rand Paul—who, natch, has had Sarah Palin fundraising for him—is a member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, the same group who are supporting Nevada’s batshit crazy GOP Senate nominee, Sharron Angle, who seems to believe that abortion causes breast cancer and that Medicare is “immoral” and “evil” (but letting elderly people is what Christ would have wanted???)

Excerpted from “Rand Paul part of AAPS doctors’ group airing unusual views”:

Republican U.S. Senate nominee Rand Paul belongs to a conservative doctors’ group that, among other things, has expressed doubts about the connection between HIV and AIDS and suggested that President Barack Obama may have been elected because he was able to hypnotize voters.

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, based in Tucson, Ariz., advocates conservative and free-market solutions on health care and a variety of other political issues.

But it also uses its medical journal and Website as forums for unorthodox medical views.

Maybe their blog is where Sharron Angle got her information for her comments about “autism” (I added the quotation marks, watch the video and see why. What galls me about this woman is how proud of herself she seems! She is PROUD of being ignorant. You can’t top that, she’s on a suicide mission!):

Ten years ago, I’d have laughed at this. In 2010, it’s not so funny:

From a press release posted today on BusinessWire:

Left Behind Games CEO, Troy Lyndon says, “Retailers are showing more interest in LB Games, our Christian video game products. Over the past several weeks, we have been unveiling our proven, proprietary church-marketing system which is designed to increase sales for retailers who carry our products. Over the past two years, we’ve invested in the development of the Christian video game market by giving away more than 50,000 PC games to our network of Pastors who share our desire to provide healthier video game alternatives to their youth. Soon, our investors will no longer have to support a pioneering effort with vision alone, but also with progress evidenced by solid sales and income.”

Have you ever actually seen the Left Behind: Eternal Forces game? It is it some spectacularly bone-headed shit, described here on the All Things Considered blog in a post titled Grand Theft Auto: Book of Revelations:

This is a game that’s actually been out for a while. I read an early review on it when it was going gold (ready for mass production), and was filled with Christ-love. I was so taken aback by the message of tolerance delivered in this game, that I had to pause my viewing of The Passion of the Christ while breezing through some of the recent Promise Keeper literature which had been stuffed into my Jesus/Santa mailbox.

In the game, titled Left Behind: Eternal Forces, you are a person left behind on Earth after the Rapture has come and taken all the true believers to Heaven. If you don’t know what this means, then you’re a doomed sinner, so put your head between your legs and kiss your forked tail goodbye. 666 Satan hearts you.

The point of the game is to convert people into disciples in order to combat the Anti-Christ. Those who cannot be converted you must kill. The bad guys are rock stars and Arab-esque people.. [Emphasis added].

WTF, right? Take comfort in the fact that Left Behind: Eternal Forces is so lame, it’s unlikely to convert anyone to anything. Even your inbred hillbilly cousin Jimmy-Joe would think this game sucks and yet there are still people all across this great nation dumb enough to buy into this shit. They even sell it at Wal-Mart. Watch the game’s trailer, below.

I love the gum-snapping blonde woman at the end. How much longer do you think their marriage is going to last with this new hobby of his?

Ministers say gays cause global warming

Ministers in the South Pacific island of Fiji think they know the cause of climate change: homosexuals.

The revelation came at a conference at the University of the South Pacific considering the implications of Climate Change and Creativity.

Academics were apparently thrown off their consideration of “Arts in the Age of Global Warming” and “Ecology in Poetry / Poetry in Ecology” by reports of Church Ministers who maintained that climate change in Samoa are clearly attributable to to homosexuals.

The revelation prompted one attendee USP student, Shaiza Janif, to opine: “We need to educate our ministers and not turn this into an agenda.”

Details of exactly how the ministers think homosexuals are pumping more CO2 into the atmosphere, thereby trapping heat around the planet, driving up the average temperature and causing massive economic and environmental dislocation are scant.

Ya don’t say…

I’ma get medieval on your ass: The ‘Galileo Was Wrong’ conference is not a prank

Many of you reading this have probably seen blog posts about the upcoming “Galileo Was Wrong: The Church was Right, First Annual Catholic Conference on Geocentrism” in South Bend, Indiana on November 6th. Geocentrism is the belief that the Earth is in a fixed place in the cosmos and that everything else revolves around us. You can look at a PDF about the conference at their website, but the gist of it is that this event seems to be a symposium trying to gain some attention for an obscure self-published book of theologically compromised physics:

Galileo Was Wrong: The Church Was Right is one of the most unique and penetrating books you will ever read. Now complete in Volumes I and II, authors Robert Sungenis and Robert Bennett take you on a tour of science and history the likes of which you would have never believed possible unless it were told to you in detailed and graphic form. Has modern science led us down the primrose path and convinced us of something that they cannot prove and that is in actuality false? Were the Fathers, the Medievals, our popes and cardinals of the 17th century correct in believing that the Earth, based on a face value reading of Scripture, was standing still in the center of the universe?

Taken at face value, most web commenters—appropriately—rolled their eyes heavenward and expressed exasperation asking “How could anyone be this fucking stupid?” Others said “This is a hoax” or “This has got to be an anti-ignorance parody.”

Apparently, the conference is actually scheduled to take place, and whether or not there will be more attendees than speakers, I can’t say, but I tend to doubt it (unless a lot of people just show to goof on them).

Only a tiny fraction of the blogs reporting on this event seemed to have actually googled the name of the main organizer, Robert Sungenis, because some special things in his background make the story even more interesting. From an article called “Anti-Semitism and the Catholic Right”:

In the early part of 2002 Sungenis had puzzled some of his friends when he began to write about his eccentric scientific views. “Einstein’s theory of Relativity is false ... ol’ Albert’s theory was devised precisely to combat the idea that the earth was standing still in space.” In an article dated 10 August 2002, he asked, “is it really such a stretch of credulity for Robert Sungenis to suggest that the earth may indeed be standing still, especially since he backs it up with evidence from Scripture, the Fathers, Papal decrees, and scientific evidence?” He would later elaborate his views in a book, Galileo Was Wrong!

On 2 September he posted his reaction to Reflections on Covenant and Mission—“Conversion of the Jews Not Necessary?? The Apocalyptic Ramifications of a Novel Teaching,” a 33,861 word diatribe against the Catholic bishops and the role of the Jews through history.

[Sungenis writing] “Well, they’ve finally done it. Its been in the works for a while, edging ever so slowly these past 40 years through the prelature. Now, following a cue from the Vatican, the sub-committee of the USCCB has issued a statement teaching that Jews no longer need to convert to Christianity, since they have their own covenant with God for salvation. ‘Amazing’ you say. You don’t know the half of it. There is only one reason why such assertions are being made—to help Israel acquire the complete land of Palestine, build their new Temple in Jerusalem; and practice Judaism as a divine mandate. Yes, the USCCB statement has apolcalyptic [sic] proportions that are unprecedented in our day.”

Huh? There’s a lot more to this story than originally met the eye. Read more about the views of the Galileo conference organizer’s, um, old fashioned views here, at a website devoted to them, Robert Sungenis and the Jews.

So who in the South Bend area wants to attend this and live blog it for DM? This ought to be a doozy!

At Little Green Footballs, Charles Johnson has come up with a brilliant question that needs to be posed—often and loudly—to Christine O’Donnell by anyone who gets close enough to her to ask it, preferably on camera. Christine, baby, you say you wouldn’t lie to Hitler’s face, so how are you gonna answer this???

Since O’Donnell is absolutely opposed to lying under any circumstances, someone should ask her how often she masturbates.

Geeeenius! I nominate Howard Stern’s crew for the job!
