Was this same-sex rape?

August 31st, 2013 by Bookslinger

The third paragraph from the end suggests this was a case of homosexual rape. The rest of the article seems to go to great lengths to avoid mentioning the gender of the victims.

(This reminds me of the media’s penchant to avoid mentioning the political party affiliation of Democrat politicians when they are accused of a crime or bad behavior, but never fail to mention the party affiliation of Republican politicians in the same circumstances.)

I’ve mentioned elsewhere that when you remove the social stigma of something (such as homosexual acts) you get more of it. I failed to mention that you also get more forms or variations of it.

I also previously mentioned that because of society’s acceptance of homosexual acts, in addition to teaching your children to beware of and fend off sexual advances from the opposite sex, that parents must now teach their children to beware of and fend off sexual advances from the same sex. I failed to mention that in addition to teaching your daughters how to avoid situations where there may be an increased likelihood of sexual assault and how to fend off or fight against a sexual assault, that parents must also teach their sons the same things.

“She twerks hard for the money”

August 29th, 2013 by Vader

Lileks is in rare form as he discusses Miley Cyrus.

Which I cannot coherently do, since I have better uses for my time than watching MTV and therefore apparently missed the hottest television moment since Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction.

Mismormon Feminist Folly: Wanting to Wear Pants to Priesthood Session

And if the Church gives in on this, they are willing to negotiate their other reasonable demands–growing chest hair and chawin’ manly tobaccer.

I have never prayed to God that He make my enemies ridiculous. It would be gilding the lily.

“It’s a trap”

August 29th, 2013 by Vader

Occupy Wall Street as a dispute over primogeniture.

The Jedi tried to avoid the problem through celibacy, as did the Roman Church.

Rainbows and ponies

August 29th, 2013 by Vader

All we need for a perfect world is to pass the right laws.

It’s the Progressive version of millenarianism. With SCOTUS in place of Christ.

“I think we screwed up very badly, Neil”

My neck is pasty white after years without seeing any light source brighter than a compact fluorescent, but I enjoyed it too.

Warning: There is some weirdness at the site such that it takes forever to load. Make allowances. It’s worth the wait.

A Good Old-Fashioned Plague

August 27th, 2013 by Zen

When Moses and Ramses had their little spat, the plagues that decimated Egypt were tailored to the individual deities of Egypt. When Elijah had a little fireside with the priests of Ba’al, the object lesson was selected with them in mind. When Israel murmured about the fleshpots of Egypt, Jehovah gave them meat until it came out their nose. (yes, he said that)

But what do you do for a modern world that idolizes the flesh? You do what any gentleman deity would do. You give them more of it. Buckets and buckets more of it. Not tiny buckets either. Ginormous buckets that just add more and more, like some perverse sorcerer’s apprentice.

Thus, we have the modern Obsity Epidemic. Only, scientists are beginning to come to the conclusion it isn’t all our food, or even our exercise or self-control. Even lab animals, with strictly controlled diets, are gaining weight. There is much we can and should do, but that doesn’t explain it all. We have something unexplained, and beyond our control. Even the priests of Pharaoh could replicate the turning the water to blood, but they soon came to the point, where they couldn’t match or understand what Moses was doing. And so it is, our very modern scientists don’t completely understand what is making us fat.

If we don’t see mass repentance on the way, it is a sure thing that we do see a lot of mass coming.

Sarcasm is Satanic

August 26th, 2013 by Georgie Porgie

I came across an article in the August Ensign arguing that sarcasm was “corrupt communication,” serving no good purpose, and should never be used by the Saints. No way this article was written by a woman, I thought to myself. No way.

I was wrong.

The Arc of the Sociopolitical Universe

August 26th, 2013 by G.

bends towards injustice:

The only way for the left to resolve the contradiction between the state and the cultivation of beneficial virtue (by a now-absent willingness to distribute harsh consequences for unvirtuous behavior) is to deny the validity of the virtue itself
