If you’re looking for free grub from a church, you’ve got to go with the Sikh’s. You get to snack on this warm, sweet chewy oatmeal-like stuff during the service, and you get a meal of really good Indian food afterwards.
They ask for donations, but you can just put in something like $5 and they’ll be completely happy to serve you.
Lower left of the picture is clearly a guy doing a pimp walk. awww yeah.
I agree completely that it’s tasteless to use your kids to score some sort of point.
There’s a group of abortion protestors who like to stand with their signs on a certain corner that I have to pass by in order to get groceries. Lately they’ve started bringing their children along. It’s obviously just to try and score a cheap point – “look at how precious children are, who would want to kill sweet little angels like these?”
I even passed by one day and it was raining. The kids couldn’t have been comfortable. But I guess making their children a little uncomfortable (and probably bored out of their minds) is worth it when it’s in the service of scoring your petty little cheap points.
Mmmm, church candles … num num num num num
Tom and Cecil: Thanks for the hilarious
podcastings. I was in lockstep dittoland on
just about every point with a great many
chuckles along the way for the last 8 or so
episodes since I stumbled into your podiverse.
So it seems it had to be inevitable that at
some point you guys might utter something
disagreeworthy. Congratulations, today was the
day! So here it is: My take on the 8 year old
kid v. Michele Bachman flapdoodlery when I
first heard about it was a post on the Book of
Face “I don’t care if she put him up to it.
More power to her if she did. ” Why? Because I
don’t think kids can be taught early enough to
stand up to bullies and speak truth to the
powerful, or in this case to the powerfully
ignorant. Did you disagree with what the child
This kid was not being taught how to carry a
napsack bomb, poison school lunches, or that
homosexuality is a sin before an imaginary god.
And who is to say what really was going on in
the kids mind? Maybe he really wanted to do it
and his mom thought it would send a more
powerful message than if she did it but he a
little scared when the time came. Did anyone
ask him? Why automatically assume it was all
the Moms idea? Did she threaten him with having
to to watch the L Word with her yet again or something?
Every Sunday millions of future bigots are
being groomed in thousands of churches
preaching intolerance in the name of Jeebus.
Don’t get bent over one gay mom who dared to
teacher her kid to fight back.
