Don’t Turn To God

(Note: Before reading this post, please consult the very serious disclaimer.)

Yesterday I reported that the town of Dover, PA, had tossed out the uber-religious zealots who were shoving Intelligent Design down the school boards’ throats. Now, thanks to Brother Hrab, I see in a news item that that eternal bastion of rational thought, Pat Robertson, has warned the citizens of Dover that, “If there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God. You just rejected him from your city.” Yes, Pat Robertson has told these folk that God has forsaken them because they had forsaken God. This is just another variation on the American right’s theme of, “vote this way ’cause God wants you to; and if you don’t, then you hate America and baby Jesus.”

Okay, this is kind of creepy. Know that slimeball who makes the Girls Gone Wild videos? Joe Francis? He keeps popping up in the weirdest places. I’ve even seen him on dating shows. Now it seems a thug has forced Joe, at gun point, to pose in sexually compromising positions… and blackmailed him with the video. The gunman, it turns out, is a fascinating character worthy of his own movie (and some serious jail time). Read about it here. I wonder how long before Joe’s tape makes it onto the ‘Net.

Which brings us to… today’s perv link.
