Where is thy flock, preacher ma'am?

Hufpo Religion encyclical 03.26.2015AD reads "Head Of The Episcopal Church Says It's 'Sinful' To Ignore Climate Change"

Empty Chairs
Unfortunately for Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori America is full of sinners - or maybe that's a good thing - honestly it's hard to tell how preachers feel about it:

  1. no sin and they're out of business
  2. too much sin means no ones listening to them anymore
  3. Apocalypse

I think, as far as the Episcopal Church is concerned, we're deep in stage 2 and slouching toward 3.


Maybe Gallup is an instrument of the devil but they claim that only 1 in 4 Americans worry about Global Warming, um, Climate Change and that half of us don't even think about it - A sin, and we couldn't care less. Maybe the Episcopalians are solidly in the Climate Change worry camp, but wait a second, I'm an Episcopalian and... Oh shit.

Jesusland goes to church while "the machine" keeps its distance

Could the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints be squeezing out the old guard? Regardless, I'll continue to congregate with the frozen chosen and inform them that they'll soon melt in a sea of fire and that it's my fault. The Religious Right will back me up 100%.



But what of the Liturgical Left? Who will fight for them as they die out or leave the church for a government job and free healthcare? Not to worry, Jesus has their back - at least in theory:
"We are meant to love God and what God has created and to love our neighbors as ourselves," Jefferts Schori said Tuesday. "Jesus insists that those who will enjoy abundant life are those who care for all neighbors, especially the 'least of these' -- the hungry and thirsty, the imprisoned and sick -- and that must include all the species that God has nurtured on this planet."
Even a species like the Episcopalian.

Thanks be to God!

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
