Satan is a liberal.

Statutory rape

June 24th, 2014 by Vader

Most of the other jokes about this are even worse.

So why link such vulgar material at our genteel blog? Well, we’re observers of culture and cultural decadence, and the fact that the fertility idols of the ancient world have made a comeback seems noteworthy.

Except, given the setting, perhaps these are better described as infertility idols.

Drones

June 23rd, 2014 by Zen

-don-mccullough

 

Far be it from me to preach a prosperity gospel with golden idols for everyone, righteousness should yield a minimum of national success. But if we can’t even compete with the corrupt and backwards regimes, then that should be a trumpet in our ears. If we are defeated in soccer/fütbol at the Worldcup, not one will be greatly surprised. If Japan or Korea makes a better smart phone, we are not shocked.

But if we don’t lead the world in pizza delivery, then something just isn’t right.  Russia has pizza delivery drones and we can’t even manage the redtape. America invented and perfected pizza as we know it. But here we are with Russia doing what we have only talked about.

I hate feeling like we are falling behind.

That and I am hungry for some supreme with extra cheese.

I do not advocate restoring polygamy.

June 23rd, 2014 by Bookslinger

But some people do. I hope it is in jest.

More responses and analyses of Kate Kelly and her movement.

June 21st, 2014 by Bookslinger

An op-ed in Deseret News by Ashley Isaacson Woolley, who has a master’s degree from Harvard Divinity School, and a J.D. from Stanford Law School.

Jeff G, at New Cool Thang, has some powerful self-reflections as a former liberal with an interesting take on the matter:

One does not simply lose one’s testimony.

Who’s really behind Ordain Women?

Drawbacks to ordaining women.

Here are two good posts by Jeff G on intellectuals in the Mormon Blogosphere:

Priesthood Authority versus Inter-Personal Reasoning.

Speech, Speakers, and Privilege

It’s here. With a couple different meanings.

“He’s not Dead, He’s in a ‘Deep Meditative State’” sounds a lot like …

May 28th, 2014 by Bookslinger

“pining for the fjords.”

Being kept in a freezer sort of gives away the answer.

Cultural reference here.

Counter the Stupidity Gradient

May 28th, 2014 by John Mansfield

my ivory towerFor a couple years I had an office at UCLA in a building called Engineering IV, a much nicer building than the utilitarian name might imply. My office and those of most I dealt with were on the fourth floor, but many mornings I would first ride the elevator up to the fifth floor to look out a large floor-to-ceiling window toward the southwest. Now and then the haze was light enough that I could see the ocean. There were no classrooms or lecture halls in this building, only offices and lab space, but it was a public building on a public university campus, so the hallways were open to the public, and we were told not to kick any strange people out, just call campus security if there was a problem.

Suicides by hanging, strangulation, and suffocation

May 11th, 2014 by Vader

Correlate extremely closely with U.S. government spending on space, science, and technology.

It’s almost the same in the Galactic Empire. Deaths by strangulation correlate closely with spending on Star Destroyers and Death Stars.

Irony

April 30th, 2014 by Vader

Food safety experts sicked by food poisoning at meeting.

Perhaps this is just a new way to motivate them.
