Wacko gems!

October 23, 2007

There’s so much crazy out there today, I’m feeling a bit woozy…

 Ark Building 101

Baylor University offers a major in Church Recreation.  Huh?  Do xtians find it hard to figure out how to serve punch and cookies?  There has to be more to it than that.  What do Church Recreation majors study?  Book burning?  Ark building?  I wonder if ‘running with the stations of the cross’ is an advanced course.

Baby Desperation

Some wacko couple in Florida was so desperate to have a child that they paid a woman to get pregnant (i.e. with her own egg) with the husband’s sperm.  The couple had a verbal agreement with the woman, but they did not enter into a contract with her.  Once the baby arrived, the surrogate decided to keep the baby.  Ooops.

If the couple was so desperate to have another child (they already have one child, born from a surrogate) why didn’t they adopt?  There are thousands of children waiting for people to take them in and provide them permanent, loving homes.  If someone is really so desperate to become a parent, how can that person neglect the fact that there are so many unwanted kids?  I am so tired of hearing about the self-induced anguish of infertile couples!  They complain about surrogacy, the pain of miscarriages, and the gobs of money spent on infertility treatment.  Who cares?!  Stop being so selfish and adopt!

War Trumps Kids!

Chimpy vetoed (10/03/2007) legislation that would provide $35 billion in healthcare for children.  Nonetheless, that fool has asked (10/22/2007) Congress for another $46 billion to fund his acts of aggression.  By vetoing the SCHIP bill, he let the nation know that he doesn’t care about sick, poor kids.  And now, less than three weeks later, we find out that his so-called war is more important to him than the welfare of children.  Oh, that’s nice.  What a hero.  He’s taken so much money from the treasury for his games (the chimpco idiots don’t even know where it all goes) and kickbacks to his friends, but he doesn’t have the heart to help kids.  Disgusting.

Religious Jewels

October 14, 2007

If there truly is a god, why are there so many different religions (especially of the xtian type)?  Wouldn’t an omniscient creator make sure that all humans followed the one ‘true’ religion that this creator made?

When confronted with logic and reason, religion makes no sense.

For instance, if this god is so great and wonderful, why is it that Mother Theresa, who chose to live in poverty, faced a never ending battle in aiding the poor, hungry, and sick?  While her work was important, her great efforts didn’t put an end to poverty in Calcutta.  Despite all of her work, the god she prayed to didn’t help her.  In the meantime, the so-called ‘men of god’ sat high and pretty at the Vatican, within the walls of palaces enjoying plenty of food, jewels, and fancy clothes.

It doesn’t make sense.
