Christine O’Donnell – Unwitting Minion of Satan or A Mouse Who Got Promoted?
So today for Whack-A-Doodle Wednesday let us fall to our knees and pray.
“Dear Lord/Lady/Head of Cabbage of my Choice, let us give thanks that yesterday in the tiny State of Delaware sanity prevailed and Christine O’Donnell was defeated by a margin of 18% over her opponent. Let us also mourn that the margin of defeat was only 18% and what the HELL were the rest of you thinking?! Let us thank Chris Coons for going to Washington to do one of the shittiest jobs there is (trying to run a country in spite of itself) while Miss O’Donnell can “win” a hailstorm of free publicity, a book deal, fat fees for personal appearances and perhaps if she is really lucky, her own reality show! She is a “star” and he is a public servant. You tell me who got the raw end of that deal? But we applaud Chris because if he wasn’t willing to sacrifice himself on the altar of “what is right rather than what is easy” we would be one step closer to Armageddon right now. Thank you and Amen”
This is the woman who elicited laughter from a room of Widener Law Students by asking, “Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?” For my readers who haven’t had their coffee yet, I present the First Amendment in its entirety.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Allow me to elucidate. There are countries where a particular religious belief is the law of that country. A specific religious view, whether Catholic, Protestant or Muslim, is the law of that country. All people living in that country are taught those beliefs in State run schools and institutions. Some countries have severe penalties for not following the dictates of that specific countries religious beliefs. Our countries very first law states there shall be NO laws governing any specific religion. This means no ones religion will be the governments religion nor shall the government keep you from exercising any religious belief system you choose. It is a matter of individual choice and liberty not a matter of government mandate.
Any school or institution that operates with government funds must keep religious bias out of their curriculum. If anyone chooses to exercise their right to the free exercise of religion as far as schooling, they can. It is called a private school. It is paid for with private funds donated and raised by like-minded people. You can not teach faith-based doctrine in a government-funded school or institution. Period. If you want to teach the story of Adam & Eve and the Garden of Eden as fact then I should be able to teach the story of the All-Goddess Eurynome (who is herself void) who copulates with the void (as the serpent Ophion) and begets all things or the Egyptian god Ptah who creates the world from his own voice. The Constitution guarantees people the right to worship as they wish and not to take sides in regards to faith and belief.
Miss O’Donnell says evolution is a theory. So is gravity. It doesn’t mean it’s not a fact.
OK, so that was scary and sad. Scary and sad that there are millions of people out there who actually believe that. It makes me sad when so many people think ignorance is intelligent and scared that these people, if given a chance, would tie me to a stick and set me on fire. But where is the Whack-A-Doodle? Here it is – Miss O’Donnell also believes Pinky and the Brain is real.
No, honestly – here is her quote:
“They are — they are doing that here in the United States. American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains. So they’re already into this experiment.”
Enough said. She has no comprehension that using endometrial stem cells injected into the brains of mice is NOT creating mice “with fully functioning human brains”. If there were such a thing, we could give her one. Obviously the brain she has is either defective or non-functional. Honestly at this point even a regular mouse brain would be a step up for her.
OK children, I have writing to do, post-election malaise to deal with and there is the Giants Victory Parade in San Francisco today that needs some attention. Granted, baseball was never my thing but it’s always good when the home team wins especially when their pitcher looks like my friend Tappy from the World Famous Poxy Boggards.
