A Christian Caliphate?

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Caliphate: an Islamic state based on the Koran and ruled by fundamentalist Muslims.

Why are so many people upset with the Supreme Court’s ruling for religious employers to opt out of Obamacare’s birth control coverage? It’s a tiny, symbolic issue.  Birth control is widely available and often free in America.  That’s why our abortion rate is the lowest it’s been in 40-years.

Extreme Christians, who brought the case to the Supremes, believe IUD’s and the “morning-after pill” are forms of abortion.  There are also some Christians who believe snake-handling is Biblically-mandated. Ask them why they believe IUD’s which PREVENT pregnancies, are abortions. These are often the same people who call microscopic cells “babies” and wave their bloody fetus signs for the television cameras.

The vast majority of Christians (including Catholics) support birth control and have used some form of it throughout  their lives.  They are what we would consider normal, rational adults who don’t believe extremists should rule the world.

A Christian idea:  Thou Shall Not Kill Real, Living People.  Exceptions:

Do people curse in their own religion? Like, “MUHAMMED!” or “BUDDA!”  shaking their fists at the sky? I tried to do some research on this but couldn’t find anything significant. I did find an interesting article on profanity here:

This Is The Tits!

Monday, June 30th, 2014

From the Huffington Post – UK : “Head to a beach this summer and you might see a bunch of women walking around with their nipples on show. But, before you drop your ice-cream cone on the floor and gawk, know that all may not be as it first seems.

The women may very well be sporting the new TaTa Top – a bikini top with two pink nipples emblazoned onto the cups.

At first glance the top may seem like some hilarious prank, but dig slightly below the surface and its creators have a distinctly more feminist agenda.”

Two Bears Having Oral Sex

Sunday, June 29th, 2014

Two years ago, Rochester, New York commissioned some internationally-recognized artists to create huge murals to brighten up the city. This one is right across the street from my building.  I’m certainly no art critic but I think it sucks.  Oral sex seems to be the BEST interpretation of it. My neighbors say it looks like two rats fighting and isn’t good for the image of the neighborhood. Countless calls and petitions to paint over it have been ignored by city hall.

The artist says it’s two bears hibernating.  Right. I think he should add a soundtrack.

There are actually 2-of these bear/rat paintings in Rochester!  One is in our dark, abandoned subway – an excellent place for it.  See:

Study: Tanning addictive, like heroin

From the Washington Post: “One recreational activity demands a beach towel and a pair of sunglasses.

The other requires a dealer and a safe place to cook up and tie off.

Catching some rays seems much more wholesome than injecting heroin.

However, a recent study found commonalities between lying on a beach and the deadly drug that played a role in the deaths of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sid Vicious and Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

“It may be necessary … to more proactively protect individuals, including teens, from the risks of an avoidable, potentially life-threatening exposure and to view recreational tanning and opioid drug abuse as engaging in the same biological pathway,” researchers led by Gillian L. Fell and Kathleen C. Robinson of Harvard Medical School concluded in a study published in the journal Cell.

The link between tanning and Mr. Brownstone: endorphins.”
