I love Jesse Ventura, he's sort of a buttroy, but he does have his good moments..his latest quote:"You give me a waterboard, Dick Cheney and one hour, and I'll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders." Jesse Ventura, former Minnesota governor who endured waterboarding as part of his Navy SEAL training, on the unreliability of information gained through the tactic. (on Larry King Live)
oh yeah?...Give me a waterboard, George Bush and 30 minutes and I'll have him confessing to every crime he ever committed started with the first grade.. who gives a fuck if it's true or not..I just wanna waterboard Bush...hmm, is that against the law to say that?...Don't know but I think it would be worth the jail time for a shot at him.
This was not only scary but ...well..reallly scary. The estimated number of nuclear warheads around the world, including non-deployed warheads. U.S. has about 5,400 of the little suckers and 2,260 non-deployed(someone tell me exactly what non-deployed means)..Russia has about 14,000 and about 8,800 non-deployed.(hey Ivan! whatcha got in that truck?).. United Kingdom has about 160.(You talked about the Queen? I have something for you in my little truck.) France has 348(you speak french like a foreigner monsieur, look what I have for you in my little truck).China has about 240(you think our toys laden with lead poison were bad, wait till you see what I have in my little truck ) Israel has 100-200(what do you mean you didn't plant a tree, I have something for you in my little truck.) Pakistan has 24-48(they don't need a reason they're just fucking nuts) India has 50-60(you don't like your tech support? I have a little support for you in my little truck). And North Korea has about 10(but the whack job over there is so sick I'm not sure he could load his little truck). Countries that used to have arsenal? Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, and South Africa...Gee, wonder what happened to them?...In someones little truck maybe? I sorta wish Ireland had a bomb...they would be free of England in a NYCity Second.
But the best is saved for last..GRACE UMC PASTOR'S MESSAGE:GAY IS OK
Sermon response draws fire from First Baptist leader, but no protesters.(he makes a point to mention the Gays protested, but the good Christians didn't...snort*)
By Ed Housewright staff writer for the DAM News
The pastor of little Grace United Methodist Church took a swipe at big First Baptist Church of Dallas on Sunday with a sermon titled "Why Gay is Ok."
The message was delivered as a counter punch to "Why Gay is Not Ok," a November sermon by First Baptist pastor Dr. Robert Jeffress.
"I knew I had to preach about this," the Rev. Diana Holbert said Sunday.
She told her diverse East Dallas congregation that homosexuality is not a big issue in the Bible and that Christians should be more focused on subjects such as health care, green in the corporate world, and the welfare of children.
About a third of the church's membership is gay or lesbian, she said.
During her sermon, Holbert said, "God doesn't discard or discriminate."
"The Bible has often been used to attack gay and lesbian persons," she said. "Lets put a stop to that."
Jeffress issued a rebuttal to Holbert's sermon even before her service began.
"I wonder if her follow-up message will be 'Why Adultery is OK'
or 'Why Incest is OK,' he wrote last week in an e-mail to The Dallas Morning News.(gee, compared gays to adulterer's and people that have sex with their kin folk....nice job pastor)
"The Bible says sex is reserved for a man and a woman in a marriage relationship," he continued. "Once you reject God's Word as our absolute authority in all matters, then any perversion is permissible." (oh my....don't you just LOVE people that quote the Bible?...I got one for you 'Jesus Wept'. There's my quote for you."
Holbert, whose husband is a professor at Southern Methodist University's Perkins School of Theology, chose her words slowly in responding after her sermon. She said she had never met Jeffress. "I want to be careful," she said in an interview."I don't want to call him anti-scholastic. I don't want to get in a fight with him."( can I ?...please ..please...let me..I'll let him throw the first punch.)Then she added, "I kind of feel sorry for him,"(yeah?..........not me...I save my pity for people with incurable diseases)
Just as Jeffress had done, Holbert publicized her sermon's title.
"For years, gay people have given up on organized religion because it has condemned the," she wrote recently in the Dallas Voice, a gay newspaper, "At Grace this simply does not happen."(who knew they had a gay newspaper...yeah Dallas.)
Jeffress' sermon six months ago drew about 100 protesters outside the downtown church. The sang "Jesus Loves Me" and carried signs with messages such as "Christ Taught Love Not Hate."
On Sunday, no one protested Holbert's sermon outside the 106-year old church on Haskell Avenue. Inside she spoke to 186 worshippers , a fraction of the number attending First Baptist, which had 10,000 members last year. She based her sermon on Acts 10:9-28, 34-48.
"'What God has made clean, you must not call profane,'" Hobert said, reading from verse 15.
Andy Smith and his long time partner, Paul von Wuipperfield, began attending Grace United Methodist church more than a decade ago, in part because of its acceptance of gays.
"This is not about a battle with First Baptist," Smith said. "It's about Grace and what the church has to offer all children of God."
Gays and lesbians in attendance made little effort to hide their sexuality, nor did they flaunt it. (this sentence is so offensive to me I can't even begin to express myself.) Several put their arms around their partners shoulder during the service. (gee ..just like heterosexuals....gasp*) Two men held hands discreetly as they returned to the pew after taking Communion at the front of the sanctuay.(discreetly?...how the fuck do you hold hands discretely?...does this mean they didn't hold hands, blow kisses and skip down the aisle?)
Penny Camfield, a lesbian, said she had stopped going to church before discovering Grace United Methodist about 15 years ago.
"I was getting conflicting messages:Jesus loves you, but...," she said."You could do everything right, but still be judged because of who you were."....
