Religious fundamentalism in pop culture & politics

cheeryhomemaker said: I think her latest boyfriend is the one who posted the pic about cheating being a choice. He also deleted all of the photos of her from his IG account.

Ah, I see.  That does seem pretty telling, unless he’s just trying to make her look bad.

On a lighter note, look who Mrs. WTF got to share a Coke with this weekend.  (They also had Zach!)
(They do not, however, have my name.  They have pretty much every possible version of Mrs. WTF’s name, and not one of mine.  Screw you, Coke.  Your soda tastes awful anyway.)

"Parents, who do you want undressing next to your daughter at the public swimming pool’s private changing area? I still believe that we are a society that puts women and children first. Women, young ladies and little girls deserve to use the restroom or any other facility in peace and safety. "

Not surprised, just disgusted.  Yep.  Women first.  Unless they’re trans.  They don’t count as people, I guess.

" I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space. We should never place the preference of an adult over the safety and innocence of a child."

So the safety of an adult means nothing to Michelle - especially not when they’re not cishet individuals. 

Robo call to Fayetteville residents this morning. Have to send in parts.

Guys, this is going to be a winner. 

"The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men – yes I said men – to use womens and girls restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only. I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls"

Yep.  Michelle equates transgender individuals with sex offenders/child molesters.  Is anyone surprised?

(Obviously I think ACTUAL child molesters should not be permitted in family changing rooms.  But that’s not what this is about.)

"Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children."

Wait for it.

Talking to God is normal.  It’s when God starts talking back that you may have a problem.

"We have homosexuality in our family and it was a hard decision to make, but in the end when I die and I’m one on one with God I have to stand true to him," Lorraine Fleming (image), the owner of Cake Pros, told local Eyewitness News.

and from another source:

Fleming told the news station that she was “sorry for the damage that’s been done as far as hurt feelings,” but noted, “I’m not sorry for my decision and I feel strong. I know that I’m doing the right thing.”

The staggering stupidity of the notion of Christian “persecution” in the USA is fucking offensive.  It is not persecution for people to say your religious beliefs should not dictate other peoples’ rights, or even to say your beliefs are disgusting to them.

How stupid do you have to be to believe that not being allowed to be cruel to others without repercussions is persecution?

I will never fucking understand it.

If it upsets you that people bristle at the notion of Christianity right now, maybe, just maybe, consider why that is, hmm?
