Ode to a hypocrit!

First, let me state that I do not have any problem, and in fact applaud people who are drawn to the ministry of their religion. On the other hand, an issue that I do have with people in the ministry is the hypocracy that sometimes prevalent, which brings me to the core of this posting.

There is an unnamed inidvidual (he will not put his name on his site) who states on his website that "the Lord sent me to preach the Gospel of the justice and retribution of our Lord Jesus Christ at a pornographic message board."

His idea seems straight-forward enough. Although his intentions seem good, further postings on his website seem to challenge his original goal. The verses given to help a person abstain from pornography and other sins of the flesh, are barely found within the lashings of a person who can't wait for all the sinners of the world to "spend eternity snap-crackle-popping in hell."

A few quotes from his postings:

  • "And so even though I will not be hopping up and down in anticipation of positive or worthwhile responses I would ask any True Christians who might be reading this to pray for these murderous sand-rodents that the Lord will either call them to repentance so that they might direct their efforts toward His will instead of the will of Allah who is also known as the demon Molech or take their lives immediately so that they will spend eternity snap-crackle-popping in hell with the rest of the Muslims and Catholics and homosexuals and child-molesters and liberal Democrats! Amen and have a happy hetero 9/11 anniversary!"
  • "A way to determine whether your girlfriend is a True Christian or a harlot in sheep's clothing: She reads from one of the new age Bible per verions like the New American Standard or the New International Version instead of the Authorized 1611 King James translation."
  • "Recently an uncomfortable amount of Romanists have been infesting my journal which is of course God's journal with their Vaticanistic propaganda and false teachings and even though I welcome readers of every faith and background including even agnostics and atheists I would like to caution those of you who might be new Christians to not be misled by their crafty polemic which if substituted for the Holy Bible and this journal will get you so burned in HELL that it won't even be funny but then again it never is. Amen."

I find that the best type of ministry is to follow what you are teaching/preaching in your everyday life. This seems like another obvious example of someone failing to read Matthew 7:1

How much meat are you worth?

If you are not familiar with the peculiar postings on MSNBC, you should really check them out. There are many articles that I find extremely funny or perplexing. Consinder the following article I found today:

BUCHAREST - Romanian second division soccer club UT Arad sold a player in exchange for 33 pounds of meat, local sport daily Pro Sport reported on Monday.

However, the deal turned out badly for fourth-division Regal Horia, because defender Marius Cioara decided to end his soccer career and find a job in agriculture or construction in Spain.

“We are upset because we lost twice — firstly because we lost a good player and secondly because we lost our team’s food for a whole week,” a Regal Horia official was quoted as saying by the daily in its electronic edition.

This gives you a new meaning on how much a person is 'worth'.

Watch out for that window!!

I just finished reading a tragic story about a boy that got so carried away with his air guitar routine (which included jumping on his bed) that he 'flew out of a third floor window to his death....

These types of stories make it so hard not to laugh at other's misfortunes. I know he died, but c'mon! Is Mick Jagar really worth it?

SINGAPORE - A teenage guitarist got so carried away while bouncing up and down on his bed mimicking a rock star that he flew out of a third floor window to his death, a Singapore newspaper reported.
The Straits Times said in Wednesday's editions that Li Xiao Meng, a 16-year-old from China who was studying at Singapore’s Hua Business School, was a keen musician who liked to jump up and down while playing his guitar in his hostel room.

Looking for a babysitter? Don't call Lannie Lloyd!!

Check out the interesting tid-bit in the News of the Weird this week:
Lannie Lloyd Hendrickson, 24, was arrested in Bozeman, Mont., in December on charges that he aggressively bit two infants he was baby-sitting, ages 1 and 2, over their arms, shoulders and legs, because they would not fall asleep. According to police, Hendrickson said he could not recall how many times he bit each one, but did admit that he "bit the shit out of them."
He pleaded not guilty, but I don't think anyone would believe him after reading that quote!

Coast gets Wired

Wired Magazine just published an interesting article on "Coast to Coast AM." It's a quick and interesting look into a great radio show. Take a look when you get a chance.

A little afriad

Standing in line at the local grocery store I let my eyes wander. I looked at the rows of candy, my fellow shoppers, the fluorescent lights in the ceiling. Then, despite all efforts to stop, I started looking at the headlines of the tabloids. Same old stuff. "[Insert famous person's name] is [pregnant/using drugs/fat/skinny], and what will happen when [Insert name of former significant other] finds out???" Then my eyes happened across the "TV Guide Magazine"

This is, apparently, a magazine that gives further insight into the complexities of the regular "TV Guide." Something like the Silmarillion only for TV Guide. I think the slogan of the magazine says it all, "Television Made Easy." Whew.
