Topless Bar turns tables on Fundy Church, pickets during Sunday services:

Bloody genius: http://www.newarkadvocate.com/story/news/local/2014/08/10/topless-women-demonstrate-church/13864525/?sf29646077=%5B%271%27%5D

Exactly the right way to make the point. Fundagelical thumpers have been picketing the strip club for years now, so the owner and like-minded locals have decided turnabout is fair play.

About 30 dancers, other staff, family and friends from the Foxhole North either marched with protest signs or sat in chairs across from the church. Church members have been protesting the private gentlemen’s club for nearly nine years. Two women were topless for about half of the four-hour protest.

After worship services ended, nine women exited the church and an argument ensued between them and the protestors. A couple of the church members also walked up and down the street with their own signs, declaring outrage at what they deemed was public indecency.

Pastor Bill Dunfee would not elaborate but said he is planning to directly confront the situation next Sunday starting with 9:30 a.m. Sunday school. Thomas George, who owns the Foxhole clubs in Warsaw and Zanesville, said his supporters plan to be at the church, with some of the women going topless, for the foreseeable future. “Next Sunday, those who hate me will hate me even more,” Dunfee said.

Ohio law allows men and women to be topless in public, in case you didn’t know.

It’s good to see ordinary Americans standing up to the bullying tactics of Fundagelical “Christians”.

Today’s Republicans: Anti-Constitutional, corrupt Pedophiles and Convicts.

It’s true. Leading Teapubbies are pretty much guaranteed to fit into or more of those categories. For proof, one need only browse the news of the day:

Anti-Constitutional: in a clear and massive violation of the Establishment Clause, Steve Palazzo sent Christian Bibles to every other member of Congress to help them make good decisions. Uhmmmm, Stevie Boi, the law of the land forbids the making of laws based on religion. Really. Look it up.

Corrupt: the Repub Majority Whip used a lobbyist to help hire and fire his staff. Yes. Yes, he did:

Quinn Gillespie & Associates’ John Feehery sat in on and participated in multiple official interviews with job candidates last month for the new majority whip’s press operation. Scalise has not yet announced who he will name as his communications director.
Sometimes lawmakers rely on lobbyists for strategic advice. But inviting a lobbyist into an interview is highly unusual. Several ethics lawyers and current and former leadership aides said they have never heard of a similar arrangement.

Pedophiles: Ted fucking Nugent is a practicing serial child-molester, and he is well-loved by Repubs across the nation. And Duck Daddy Phil Robertson advocates marrying underage girls. In fact, he did so himself.

Convicts: Dinesh D’Souza, a self-admitted and convicted felon, will…oh Hell, I’ll just quote the article:

Dinesh D’Souza, a conservative author and filmmaker who in May pleaded guilty to making illegal campaign contributions, will give the keynote speech at the West Virginia Republican Party’s annual “Victory Dinner” in September.

D’Souza will speak at the fundraiser in Charleston on Sept. 19, four days before he is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court on one felony count of campaign finance law violation.
“Dinesh D’Souza has been a warrior for more than 20 years for conservative values and solutions to some of our most difficult problems as a nation, like education and immigration,” state Republican Party Chairman Conrad Lucas said in an email announcing D’Souza’s appearance. “We are proud to bring him to West Virginia at such an important time in our state’s Republican turn to red.”

Got that? These people are not bad apples in the barrel: they are lauded and exalted by the rest of the fruits in that container. Child molesters, thieves, whores and felons: those, my friends, are the very model of the New Republican Party. They lead it, promote it, belong to it, and vote for it. They are what the party of Lincoln has become.

Vote for a Republican, and you signal your support for child abuse and other disgusting, Anti-American acts.
Vote against them if, well, you DON’T support child abuse and other disgusting, Anti-American acts.

So the Satanists are on the side of Good? Really? No, seriously, really?

I gotta admit, I never expected something like this: the Satanic Temple is on the warpath against recent Catholic/Fundagelical attempts to take away our individual religious freedom. Yes. Yes. Yes, really, you DID read that correctly:

In a statement, the Satanic Temple said that it will use the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision to exempt its believers from state-mandated informed consent laws that require women considering abortions to read pro-life material.

In some states, that information consists of pro-life propaganda that links abortion to a higher incidence of breast and ovarian cancers, or discusses “post-abortion syndrome,” a mental condition not recognized by any major medical or psychiatric organization.

Because the Satanic Temple bases its belief “regarding personal health…on the best scientific understanding of the world, regardless of the religious or political beliefs of others,” it claims that state-mandated information with no basis in scientific fact violates its “religious” beliefs.

Holy cow. This is totally wack. Having been raised in the ecumenical era of the 60’s and early 70’s, when tolerance was the order of the day, I have always seen churches as helpful, benevolent, charitable organizations.

But today, “Christians” are all too often shrill, hate-filled, sadistic separatists who want to punish us for not being more like them. They want to impose their religion upon us, violently if need be, via an extra-constitutional theocratic government. Freedom is anathema to the politicized Fundagelicals of this century.

And who is fighting to protect us from these foam-flecked, shrieking, demented, alleged followers of Rebbe Yeshuah Bar Joseph (who actually follow the teachings of Leviticus and Paul, not Jesus)? Who is standing for religious liberty, respect for others and civil rights for Americans?

Yep, it’s the Satanists who are on the side of the angels. And the Christians who are possessed by demons.

The world has gone truly, totally, deeply, barking mad.
