The Holy Spirit can really… fuck you up.

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 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!

O’Donnell wouldn’t lie to Nazis (LIttle Green Footballs)

Amazing crop circle discovery?

Women in search of crop circles in Wiltshire, England make an amazing discovery, a rare find, a crop circle!  This results in a collective spiritual epiphany. The video was broadcast on Norwegian television as documented evidence of the existence of crop circles. The film makers had no idea that the ‘crop circle’ was created by Quite Interesting Ltd. as part of a promotional campaign for a BBC TV show called ‘Q.I.’. The poor gullible ladies in the video must have been deeply disappointed to discover their magical find was, in actuality, an advertisement.

Christine O’Donnell: Even stupider than you thought!

A post from Dan Amira on New York magazine’s blog about Delaware’s Republican Senatorial no-hoper, Christine O’Donnell, quotes from a transcript of a, uh, “debate” over evolution between the dotty, anti-masturbation church lady and an evolutionary biologist. The Tea party favorite, who has been accused of living off campaign donations by her former campaign manager, really tells him, doesn’t she?

CHRISTINE O’DONNELL: Well, creationism, in essence, is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24-hour periods. And there is just as much, if not more, evidence supporting that.

No evidnece at all, Christine. Those dinosaur fossils were put here by God just to fuck with people, right?

And here’s what she said about not lying to Nazis if they wanted to know where the Jews were hiding on a Politically Incorrect appearance in the late 90s:

CHRISTINE O’DONNELL: A lie, whether it be a lie or an exaggeration, is disrespect to whoever you’re exaggerating or lying to, because it’s not respecting reality.

BILL MAHER: Quite the opposite, it can be respect.

EDDIE IZZARD: What if someone comes to you in the middle of the Second World War and says, ‘do you have any Jewish people in your house?’ and you do have them. That would be a lie. That would be disrespectful to Hitler.

CHRISTINE O’DONNELL: I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously. I believe that!

And for a little perspective, here’s Eddie Izzard, her fellow guest on Politically Incorrect, on Creationists, dinosaurs and Jesus:

Andrew Breitbart starring in ‘A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words’

At the FreedomWorks 9/12 rally at the National Mall, conservative blowhard Andrew Breitbart asked this question of the mainstream media, “How dare you call these God-loving Americans, racists?” He accused Theresa Brewer of using Photoshop to doctor photographs to make Tea party, uh, “patriots” look like racists and homophobes.

But why bother, as you can tell from the above photograph of Mr. Breitbart, left, speaking with one of his admirers.

Nicely done whoever got that stellar snapshot!

I have never been able to get my head around Andrew Breitbart. Clearly he’s not an idiot, and yet he seems so freakishly resistant to the stark reality that he was speaking to an audience comprised entirely of idiots. How the fuck does that work???
