As We All Know, Satan Quotes Scripture

Anti-Christian bully, Dan Savage, apparently got his jollies bashing the Bible to a bunch of high schoolers on Friday. And what a soaring victory for gay activists everywhere – I mean, pedaling an obscenity-laden ignorant rant to an audience of teenagers takes such courage, such pure valor. Subsequently calling the 100 kids who walked out on his bitchy diatribe “pansy asses” must have tried his testicular fortitude as well. Wow, this bully  guy is really standing up to the Christian kids bullies! Good thing Obama likes him.

Get ready to feel tolerant:

Goodness knows that taking scripture completely out of context in an effort to propagandize impressionable youths is easy, but it seems that these days, even adults will fall prey to this tactic without much of a second thought. For example, when Savage uses the issue of slavery as a means of demonstrating that somehow the Bible consistently condones it (calling the Bible “radically pro-slavery”) he is relying on the assumption that most people have about the biblical use of that term. He would have us believe that at the very least, God likes slavery and is fine with his people holding slaves. Unfortunately for Dan’s flimsy little argument, the reality is that in most instances in the Bible where slavery is mentioned, the reference is to what we would know today as indentured servitude. Distinctions like this are important to intellectual honesty – something obviously not held in high regard by the likes of Dan Savage and his fellow gay activists.

But, thankfully, smarties like Jimmy Akin go the extra mile to get at the root of these commonly exploited fallacies.

This whole anti-bullying movement is shaping up to be a rather savvy attack on religion for those on the secular left. Let’s please all be vigilant and ready to stand against it.

A Bunny Tale

Recently our lot has been somewhat overrun by rabbits. Bare patches of ground have started to emerge, along with little piles of bunny-poo – which are apparently a type of irresistable candy to growing puppies. A couple years back it was squirrels, but now rabbits can be seen running through the alley in the early morning hours, while at night they camp out in the front yard. The dogs are of no avail since they see no point in giving chase to what they know they can’t catch.

"I like shootin' stuff reeal good."

People who’ve tried say that the good ‘ol pinwheel is no more a deterrent to rabbits than it is to pigs named Maxwell. And then there’s fox urine, which we haven’t tried. But can urine from a fox really be any more effective than urine from a dog? Doesn’t add up to me.

So upon weighing our options, my redneck husband, who is armed for every other kind of target, decided it was probably most preferable for him to go buy a pellet gun and commence thinning the rabbit population. Now of course this idea did not sit well with me, though I know it’s the most pragmatic solution. Continue reading

Well, it’s that time of year again… you know, shoe shopping! Or sandal shopping to be more specific. Ladies, is there anything better than finding the perfect pair of comfortable, adorable, wear-all-summer sandals? Nope. But this year I’m having a hard time with the styles – as cute as many of the casual flip flops are, I’m in the mood for something less… gym-locker-room-chic, if you get me. Continue reading
