Welcome to Post-Constitutional America

Sovereignty.

What a great week I’m having, my good friends.  I know you all heard that the United States Supreme Court recently ruled that the US’s “ObamaCare” is constitutional.  Right?  Did you celebrate?  So did I, my friends, so did I.  This was one time that I really thought my Supreme Reliables would let me down.  After a long history of finalegalitification of my kingdom goals, I knew (as did most others) this law to be so blatantly unconstitutional as to cause a losing setback.  But, by moi, if those trisksterific tricksters didn’t come through after all!

All is progressing well in my earthly kingdom, my servants.

I thought I would use the afterglow of this great victory to briefly let you in on how I got the Americans to a place where they let “limited government” become just “government.”  It is an exciting story, not only because it stars moi, but also because it was so easily preventable.  And this is not primarily about the wisdom, prudence, or tragedy (take your pick) of ObamaCare.  It is ultimately a story about sovereignty squandered.

Squandered.

Do you know what it means to be “sovereign” my friends?  Yes, you probably have a good idea.  It means the ultimate “who sez” in any sphere of human involvement and interaction.  Everyone obeys an ultimate “who sez;” humans will always be subject to (and subjected to) a “who” whether they like it or not.  Families, for example, were created with a definite “who” as the ultimate “sezer.”  The sphere of employment, the military, the church, and every other social structure functions properly only when there is a definite and proper “who” behind any “sezes.”

And what about government, my friends?  Well, let me key you in on some kingdom truths that have worked for me, my servants.

Listen up.

Remember, my friends, I started out that very first social structure by putting into that little pretty’s head one simple question: “who sez?”

And ever since my initial success under that fruit tree I have tried to ensure that every family, every church, every government, indeed, even every individual becomes divided over the issue of “who sez?”

Somebody will always rule over man’s life.

The question of government presents a particularly tricky problem for God and me (mostly God), because, of course, God and I both want to rule over man.

Yes, government (meaning the “state” or other municipal or national leaders to order society) has a proper place in the affairs of men.   But I know that the “proper place” is extremely difficult in a world of passionate human beings who love to lord over other human beings.  And I manipulate this difficulty to my advantage.

In fact, as you know from history, I actually experience little difficulty in eventually devolving every form of human government into some form of tyranny.

Kings, princes, rulers.  All eventually succumb to a sinful world’s demands to enforce tyranny, even if for supposedly noble purposes.

But tyranny nonetheless.

It’s a beautiful thing.

That’s why, my servants, I must confess that the American Experiment scared the . . . , well, the heck out of moi.

Yes, the living heck.

Do you know why?

If you are an American, you should.  But I bet you don’t.

I’ll tell you, even though even now it makes me shiver.

Those Americans served up a double whammy.  First, their Experiment was founded on a Biblical worldview.  That is to say, America was founded by and  among a people that largely believed in a true, transcendent, living God.  In time this foundation upheld what could be fairly described as a Christian nation.

Blechhhhh!

Now, that first whammyfier is an undeniable truth that is often denied today.  But there can be no question that America was, at one time, a “Christian nation” in the sense that its traditions and culture, including its laws and government, were informed by a Biblical worldview.

Let the deniers deny.  I’ll soon set them down.

But it’s the second whammyfier that sent my kingdom into spasms of anguish.  You see, the American Founding Fathers knew that sovereignty must rest in someone.  Someone must be the ultimate “who sez?”

And do you know who America’s Founding Fathers made the ultimate “who sez?”

Think.

No, it was not God.

But in the case of the Americans it was the next most destructive thing, though.

Here it is.  This is key to understanding both the early success of America, and its now-sure demise:  the Founding Fathers structured their new government such that sovereignty rested with the people.

A free people!

Yes, the American Constitution set the governing law for a nation of free men living under a very limited federal government.  The American Constitution sets forth specific things the federal government was permitted to do.  Outside of these few enumerated powers, the federal government was to let a free people live free.

Government officials were to be servants of the people.

Even today, government officials are still called civil servants.

Ha ha ha ha ha.

Oh, that one always makes me chuckle.

Now, pay attention.  I see some of you only half paying attention.  Listen up.

American liberals today fail to understand a fundamental truth that their Founding Fathers knew: a government where sovereignty rests in the people only works where the people can govern themselves under an inner morality and virtue.

Yes, my liberals predictably deny that religion and virtue (the two only go together for Biblical-based religions, which is the case in early America) are a necessary ingredient for freedom and liberty.  But both experience and the Founding Fathers (many of whom were not flaming fundamentalist Christians) weigh in (as usual) against present-day liberals:

Consider George Washington: “Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.”

Consider Benjamin Franklin: “[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”

Consider Thomas Jefferson: “No government can continue good but under the control of the people; and . . . . their minds are to be informed by education what is right and what wrong; to be encouraged in habits of virtue and to be deterred from those of vice . . . . These are the inculcations necessary to render the people a sure basis for the structure and order of government.”

Religion? Virtue? Right and wrong?

Blechhhhh!

Now to the fun part, my servants.

I knew that to destroy America I had to undermine both of the whammyfications: the moral base of a Christian nation, and the sovereignty of a free people.

It was not easy, but we are almost there.

And, as you probably know, I used the one check and balance of limited government that was best suited to manipulation: the judiciary.

Over time I ensured that the very Constitution that was originally formed to order a free, moral people, was used to shackle and demoralize (in the truest sense of the word).

Prayer in schools, gone.  Teaching the scientific evidence of true creation in public schools, gone.  Dignity of life, liberty and happiness itself at the most vulnerable point of all three, gone–snipped as easily as the snip, snip, snip of a doctor-like person’s legally protected immoral, un-virtuous, corrupted practice permitted not by the people, but by the Court.

Oh, how I love the US court system.

Demoralizing people to render them largely without transcendent, meaningful moral compasses was the first step in destroying America.

But I did it; I nullified the first whammification and in less than two generations transformed America into a “post-Christian” nation.

Thank you.

Now for the second whammification.

Remember, everyone will be ruled by someone.  Either a man will be ruled by the mandates of a conscience informed by God, or he will be ruled by the mandates of another man.

Mandates?  Did I day mandates?

How convenient!

Yes, my servants, every living man (which includes those on earth and elsewhere) lives by mandates.  The mandates are either internally imposed from a free man’s heart to live in peace and tranquilly according to God’s law, or they will be externally imposed from another man on earth.

To get free Americans to bow under the mandates of other men outside the constitutionally enumerated powers of government was a little more difficult and time-consuming.  But I did it by slowly changing society’s notions of “fairness” and “justice.”  You see, the American constitution was originally based on a notion of fairness that sees outcomes based on individual achievement of individuals playing on a level playing field of laws designed to provide the justice of equal opportunity.

Some individuals succeed.  Some fail.  Equal application of laws protect them all.  That is, the laws of the land protect the life, liberty and property (the actual meaning of happiness; look it up) of the individual against all those who would seek to take it/them.

Of course, liberals cannot have this kind of equality.  For liberals, who imagine themselves compassionate, it is equality of outcome that matters.

And equality of outcomes requires that the life, liberty or property be taken one for the good of another.

I had to transform America into a nation of makers and takers.  I had to realign the thinking of sovereign people to believe it is just that government originally formed to protect property instead confiscate property so that envious others can shamelessly mooch in the name of fairness.

Just and fair, right?

Yes, if you have my sense of justice and fairness (as well as envy, jealousy, laziness, etc.), i.e., theft from one for blissful dependence of another!

So I had to slowly transform the Constitution’s foundational premise of equal opportunity to all into a premise of guaranteeing equal results to all.

And I’ve been almost completely successful.

Don’t believe me?

ObamaCare.

Ha ha ha ha ha.

But I’m ahead of myself.

ObamaCare did not happen overnight.  ObamaCare is the result of years of my effort to remove sovereignty from the people and put it into the hands of an ideologically driven ruling elite.

And I did this within the American system by slowly over time transforming an electorate that has become ignorant of the Constitution’s noble ideals of free men under God, to an electorate, a large part of which has succumbed to the post-constitutional ignoble ideas of dependent men under a ruling elite.

The siren call of a ruling elite fashioning “fairness” in the name of “justice” is too much for some to resist.

And when the moochers vote for more and more moochies, my job is done: America has become post-constitutional because sovereignty gets de-facto transferred to a ruling elite in spite of the people.

Don’t believe me?

ObamaCare.

I’m not the first to use the term “post-constitutional” but I’m the one responsible for it.  Mark Levin, for example, explains “post-constitutional”: It means that much of what the federal government does is not authorized by the Constitution.

Another writer uses the term to enlighten his proposition that “the U.S. Constitution poses no serious threat to our form of government.”

Get it?

I’ve successfully brought the American people to a place where the Constitution has little to do with America’s current form of governance.

As Michael Gerson put it, over time I’ve arranged that “conservatives” who usually do not like to lurch about as liberals do, tend to let liberal lurching go unchecked:

If the conservative response following every period of liberal activism is humility and continuity, then the ideological ratchet only turns leftward.

I am the racheter, my friends.

Paradoxically, because a large voting bloc votes their sovereignty to a ruling elite, this leftward racheting ensures that political power no longer resides in the hands of the American-by-idealogy electorate.

Welcome, my friends, to post-constitutional America, where a small band of un-American idealogues, lead by me and my chief beelzebud Obama, lead a large population of American idealogues who no longer have the votes for constitutional governance of free people by a limited government.

ObamaCare.

Proof of my success.  Again, as Mr. Gerson put it with respect to Chief Justice Robert’s ObamaCare opinion:

What initially seemed wise now smacks of mere cleverness — less a judge’s prudence than a lawyer’s trick. To find the health care law constitutional, Roberts reimagined it.

Judicial cleverness. Re-imagining the ruling elite’s oppression as liberty and freedom for all.

It’s what I do.

And I’m good.

I’m very good.

I’m ObamaCare good.

Welcome to post-constitutional America, my friends.  Where nothing is beyond the reach of the federal government’s mandate.  And where the federal government’s mandate can and will crush the mandates of conscience every time.

Where what theirs is theirs and what’s yours is theirs.

Where life, liberty, and property are no longer inalienable rights.

They have been alienated.

And I’ve succeeded in once again dividing into the Divided States of America.  This time the division is between those who believe the fundamental role of government is to apply just laws to protect life, liberty and property in the name of fairness, and those who believe the fundamental role of government is to redistribute life, liberty and property, also in the name of fairness.

In short, my Divided States of America are divided over the fundamental role of government: is government’s proper role to enforce a level playing field? Or is it to tilt the playing field?

The tilters are winning because now the ruling elite believes in redistributive fairness, and the “who sez” is “government sez” on everything whether or not the people like it, want it, or asked for it.

Sovereignty.

Squandered.

Your Glee is My (unstoppable) Glee

Posted in Ethics, homosexuality, Morality, political correctness, progressives, same sex marraige, Sex, Sexual revolution with tags , , on November 13, 2011 by devilbloggger

Glee!

I knew it would come to this, my servants.  After all, what (or who) could stop it?  Yes, my friends, I’m bragging about the glorious boyboysex delivered into millions of households this week on Fox’s popular teen-targeted comedy “Glee”.

Comedy?

Maybe for you, but for me?  It’s pure glee!

Ha ha ha ha ha.

Boyboysex on prime time television.  According to Fox News’ article entitled “Straight, Gay Couples Lose Virginity on ‘Glee’ Episode, Spark Controversy,” my will on earth is hurtling along almost totally unimpeded.

Who can stop it?

According to the Fox News article, both a heterosexual couple and a homosexual couple will lose their respective virginities on this prime time fare.

And do you know what I like best?  It’s that the uproar is virtually solely over the boyboysex.  The world apparently yawns at two children of opposite sex “losing it” on television.  That is so yesterday.

But boyboysex?

Well, soon that, too, will be so yesterday.

You see, my servants, how far we have come. Today’s shock is tomorrow’s yawn.

And the beat goes on.

My Glee glee is particularly gleefulicious because it comes during the same week that the world is shocked at the allegations of boyboysex between a grown man and a 10-year old boy in the locker rooms of Penn State’s Happy Valley.

I love the hand-wringing over the fate of that poor little 10-year old (who was merely unlucky in time; within the next 50 years such behavior will be accepted as normal).  The popular press screams in high moral outrage about a grown man enjoying boyboysex with a 10-year old pinned to a shower wall.

You are all my 10-year olds, my friends.

While the world frets about that 10-year old on the receiving end of boyboysex in the locker room, do you know how many 10-year olds (or younger) watched boyboysex on Glee?

I’ll tell you.  I was gleefully counting: 2,744,992.

And do you know what else?  About 31% of those 10-year olds were watching with their parents in the room.

I’m not sure what I’m more proud of — the kids watching with their mind-numbed parents, or the kids watching without.  Both are huge victories for my kingdom.

Ha ha ha ha ha.

Now, of course, there are those against my kingdom who try to sound the warning bell.    Melissa Henson, the director of communications and public education for the Parents Television Council, a nonpartisan education organization advocating responsible entertainment, was quick to weigh in by refuting the standard Hollywood line:

Hollywood loves to defend teen sex story lines by insisting, “Kids are having sex! We’re reflecting the real world!” But the truth is much more sobering and
complicated.

Yes, of course it is.  Because as Henson states:

Teens are also aware that television influences their behavior. According to one survey, a third of youths age 12 and older say the media encourages them to have sex by making it seem like “everybody does it.” And why shouldn’t they get that impression?

You see, my friends.  I use television to continually push back the lines of morally acceptable behaviour for language, sexuality, and culture in general.  But my greatest achievements come among the little chillen’s of the world.

And I’m proud not only because of what I’ve accomplished, but also at how easy it is.

A few minutes of prime time comedy will prove to anyone how effective my strategy has been.  The airwaves shining into the minds of chillens the world over are full of vulgarity, sexual innuendo, sexual exuendo, glamorized casual sex, shameless gratuitous sex, and, of course sex-laced laugh lines to make you laugh your way to moral rot and decay.

You see, my friends, I have almost the whole world grinning with glee as they face the shower wall.

And, again, who can stop me?

Apparently no one.

Ha ha ha ha ha.

(PS: Don’t tell anyone, but television would hardly be my playground of evil if only Christians and those who call themselves Christians stopped watching.  Shhhhh!)

God, Man, and the Rule of Law: A Primer

Posted in democracy, Ethics, Government, multiculturalism, politics with tags , , , , on May 25, 2011 by devilbloggger

Rule of Law.

Two stories today, my servants, that seem unrelated but are actually intricately bound up in a societal dynamic of my making.  I am so proud.  You will be too.  Let me explain.

I first read in my morning reading by the fire a story from Religion Dispatches entitled, “Christocrat Competition” about US presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s choice of former US senator Zell Miller as his campaign’s co-chair. 

Remember Zell Miller? 

As Sarah Posner reminds us in her piece, Mr. Miller gave a speech in 2004 on the floor of the Senate asserting that America was on the road to moral ruin because of the separation of church and state.

I know, my servants. I know.

Of course Mr. Miller is self-evidently right, but fortunately self-righteous fools like Ms. Posner do not see self-evident truths. 

I do all I can to ensure blindness to the obvious. 

In this case, Ms. Posner recounts with measured horror that Mr. Newt’s choice said in the same 2004 speech:

Everyone today seems to think the U.S. Constitution expressly provides for separation of church and state. I guess you could ask any 10 people if that is not so and I will bet you most of them will say, well, sure that is so. And some would point out that is in the First Amendment. Wrong.

I know, my servants.  I know

This kind of talk scares the you-know-what out of me.  If ever the Americans catch on to my “separation of church and state” lie my American kingdom of secular folly will crash, reducing the Americans back to their original moral order. 

And their original moral order was not my moral order.

Let me share some kingdom knowledge with you my servants–knowledge that will tie in with the second story I mentioned above.  Please, if there is anyone who can see your screen right now, casually switch to this website, read it carefully while you wait for the potential eavesdroppers to leave, and then continue reading.  The following is for your eyes only.

Are they gone?

Good.

Here it is: everyone in the universe is under the authority of someone.  The “someone” on earth will necessarily be either God or man.  The American founders clearly contemplated a society imbued with a moral order originating in a belief in God.  The Founding Fathers knew that a well-functioning society was one that worked according to the rule of law, and the rule of law stemmed from a transcendent Rule of Law from a transcendent Lawgiver.

Don’t believe me? 

Good.  The more who don’t believe me, the better for my kingdom.

But consider this, my servants.  What will control men if not the conscience of a heart under the authority of a transcendent God?

Yes, other men.

Did you ever wonder why third world banana republics have so many strongmen around?  Conscripted kids with automatic weapons casually strolling city streets?  Highly visible police forces intruding on every civil liberty?

Have you noticed the steadily increasing use of strongmen to police American society?

Ha ha ha ha ha.

All this because it is the Rule of Law that suffers when men reject the ultimate authority of God and trade it for the more attractive authority of man.  No longer does each person in society subject himself or herself to an objective set of rules; each person feels free to do what is good in his or her sight, unless constrained by the hand of a stronger man.

The rejection of the Rule of Law in America is illustrated in the other story today–Michael Barone’s piece in the Washington Examiner entitled, “Obama skirts rule of law to reward pals, punish foes.” 

You see, President Obama’s actions and policies represent a pinnacle of centuries of my labor in America to mold societal thinking into a secular society.   America has become a nation looking to government as provider and protector, a role that used to be held by God.  Government is nothing more than Mangod; Americans have effectively subjected themselves to the ultimate authority of Men, which is to say without overstatement, to me.

Ha ha ha ha ha.

Mr. Barone illustrates America’s new authority by taking the example of Obamacare: everyone wants to get out of the requirements of Obamacare.  But coincidently only a select few do: those who were Obamacare’s biggest political supporters.  Barone notes, for example:

Union members are only 12 percent of all employees but have gotten 50.3 percent of Obamacare waivers. 

This is only one example of many; I suggest you read the entire article.  But aside from the specifics, Mr. Barone very insightfully realizes:

One basic principle of the rule of law is that laws apply to everybody. If the sign says “No Parking,” you’re not supposed to park there even if you’re a pal of the alderman.

But of the Obama administration, after noting many other examples of Obama’s rule of man, Mr. Barone notes:

Punishing enemies and rewarding friends — politics Chicago style — seems to be the unifying principle that helps explain the Obamacare waivers, the NLRB action against Boeing and the IRS’ gift-tax assault on 501(c)(4) donors.

Do you see what is happening, my servants?  Americans have traded the Rule of Law for the Rule of Man, and the Rule of Man rules as men do: impetuously, arbitrarily, selfishly, and unfairly.  Mr. Barone concludes:

They look like examples of crony capitalism, bailout favoritism and gangster government.  One thing they don’t look like is the rule of law.

No, they don’t. 

Because they can’t.  The Rule of Law necessitates the Lawgiver.  And the Lawgiver is not only not welcome in America, he is illegal.

When one separates “church and state” one necessarily ends up with “secularism and state,” and secularism is a religion having no objective, transcendent anchor for the rule of law. 

Enjoy, America, the Rule of Mangod.

Because it’s all you have when you reject the God man.

 

Raunchy? That’s what I do.

Posted in Ethics, secular humanism, Sexual revolution, toleration with tags , , on February 27, 2011 by devilbloggger

Raunchy.

I love the sound of the term “raunchy,” don’ t you?  There’s something about that word that captures the essence of much of who I am and what I do on earth.  Is television raunchy?  That’s me.  Are movies raunchy?  That’s me.  Bestselling novels raunchy?  That’s me.  Raunchy MTV videos?  That’s me.  Raunchy YouTube videos?  That’s me.  Raunchy Wii games?

What?

Ha ha ha ha ha.

My servants, I delight in taking a tool with the potential for cultural and societal good and seeing how quickly I can subvert its use to drive the basest desires of human beings.   I’m particularly diligent in corrupting any new technology that has the capacity to further God’s kingdom into one that suckers human beings further to mine. 

And now, I’m happy to say, I’ve even branched out into toyland spreading my women-degrading, man-lusting delights to kids by way of none other than the otherwise amoral Wii. 

Wheeeee!

Here is how I do it, my servants.  This is kingdom knowledge, so handle it appropriately.  Inside every human being (but mostly men) a prurient voyeur lurks that just loves to sneak a peek at the unseemly or obscene when it can.  And, of course, a peek hardly suffices so usually a focused gaze of curiosity becomes necessary.  And of course, curiosity can hardly be satisfied without a good long study of the subject matter.  And then, of course, after an intense, prolonged appreciation of the matter the satisfied prurient appetite merely needs a little time to lust for even more.

So all I need do is gauge the current standard of lewdness and obscenity and push the boundary slightly with some “alarming” new salacious tidbit of lyrics, screenplay or video. 

Parents howl, critics titter, network executives dissimulate, the FCC weighs in, and . . . I merely wait for the dust to settle to a new normal. 

And then I do it again.  The sensitized prurient organ of humans lusts for more.  What once shocked the eyes and ears now seems dull and routine.  The eyes need another body part to glimpse; the ears need another cuss word to consider.

And the beat goes on.  

As long as I keep slowly moving the fenceline of raunchiness I get hordes of paying customers, like sheep without a shepherd, grazing along behind me.  It seems the grass is greener with money on the other side. 

You see, my servants, if no one watched, listened, or participated in my shenanigans, I would fail.  But I am a great success because so many people, including Christians and those who call themselves Christians, laugh, giggle, rewind, TiVo, email, share, and otherwise indulge their prurient interests in my offerings. 

And the beat goes on.

I did it with television.  Remember when television was full of good, healthy programming?  Comedies were funny without sexual innuendo, dramas were serious without sexually explicit scenes, and movies were engrossing and enchanting without graphic sexual exploitation.

Of course, now you have Charlie Sheen.

Ha ha ha ha ha.  That’s me!

So you can imagine my delight, my servants, when I read in the UK’s The Sun newspaper today that even Wii is rushing for my action.  You know Wii,  the little kid’s game?  Right? 

Well, now, according to the article entitled “It’s Wii too rude,” it seems that Nintendo’s Wii is getting raunchy as well with a game everyone should enjoy, and which I hope everyone does enjoy.  The game involves players, so to speak, in flirty hands-on sex games which involve such good fun as women hiding the “Wiimote” inside their pants or skirt in just the right place so that the fun-loving men can rack up points by spanking in just those right places. 

And my Wii victory is especially rewarding because the very name “Wii” was coined because Nintendo intended the game to be a family system that everyone in the family could enjoy.  In early 2006 Nintendo chose a name that sounds like the English word “we” to signify togetherness.  

Oh! The fun!  Men spanking laughing women as both hope, no doubt, to score big later.  And the fun never ends!  The promo videos show women seeming to kiss women (all in fun!) and in one YouTube video the fun-loving lads swap partners and head off to have sex.  We’re not sure with whom, or how many.  But who cares? 

That’s me!

Now, here’s what I’m proud of, my friends.  It took decades to slowly transform television from Dick Van Dyke to Charlie Sheen.  It took decades to painstakingly degrade movies from Gone with the Wind to Knocked Up.  It took decades of persistence to go from Barbra Streisand to Lady Gaga.

But it took less than 5 years, my servants, to take a game that “everyone could enjoy” to be a game that everyone could enjoy with some real togetherness!

See how I operate?

And the beat goes on.

Wheeee!

An Apple a day keeps the Christians away

Posted in abortion, Ethics, homosexuality, political correctness, same sex marraige, toleration with tags , , on December 2, 2010 by devilbloggger

Ahhhh . . . sometimes life just goes your way.

You will recall, my servants, that I warned you about the Manhattan Declaration.  I told you then that this organization worried me, because they stood for three simple propositions: the sanctity of life, the dignity of marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and religious liberty.

Blechhh! Gag me!

You can see why the Manhattan Declaration cats are bad news.  They stand for everything I hate and everything I oppose.

Fortunately, I do not stand alone.  I’m happy to report to you, my faithful, that Steve Jobs stands with me.  And Apple stands with me.  And iPhones and iPads will have no apps that oppose me.  Could I ask for anything more?

You see, my servants, the Manhattan Declaration folks, who are pure Godpunks, snuck an app onto the sacred Apple iTunes App Store that sought to undermine my kingdom.  They deviously and with full intent supplied an app that advocated “”the sanctity of life, the dignity of marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and religious liberty,” according to its website.

Blechhh! Blechhh! Blechhh!

Never mind that the app was fully vetted and was accepted by Apple and rated as a 4+, meaning it contained no objectionable material.  Never mind that the app reflects the views of the majority of people on earth.  Never mind that the app was in good taste and civil in tone.  Never mind everything except that the app was a direct shot by my enemies against the beloved of my kingdom.

When I found this app in October I quickly mobilized my most faithful complainers, and, according to yesterday’s ABC News story, entitled, “‘Anti-gay’ iPhone App Pulled From Apple Store,” I was very successful.   My servants who, like me, are against the sanctity of life, and against the dignity of marriage, and against religious liberty rose up in small noisy numbers and petitioned the Great Steve himself to intervene on their behalf.  And I came through.

What a Devilsend!  Can you imagine if small children viewed this app? 

As the ABC News article quotes, the offended petitioners called the app “anti-gay” and “anti-choice.”  You see, no one should have a choice whether to express anti-gay sentiments or not.  Ha ha ha ha ha.  You have a choice only to do my will publicly, never God’s. 

God’s choices offend important people.  My choices offend only unimportant people.

Ha ha ha ha ha.

Thanks, Steve.

Gays not so happy with Mormons

Posted in atheists, Ethics, homosexuality, Morality, Uncategorized with tags , , on October 11, 2010 by devilbloggger

Chalk one up for the home team, my servants.

Yes, I know it’s a small victory, and it’s not the first or the last, but I just have to boast when I see political correctness confuse, confound, and control the religiously motivated.  (The theistically religious, I should clarify; the atheistically religious rarely run afoul of political correctness).

This time it’s the Mormons.  I don’t have any great beef with the Mormons, in fact I find their view of who Jesus is to be fascinatingly attractive.  I just wish their belief was true; maybe then I’d get a little familial respect out of Heaven.  Yo, bro!

Ha ha ha ha ha.  Yeah, yo bro, where’s my birthday card?

But regardless the religious prop of the day, we get a kick down here every time a church boy takes a position on an important issue for which God also has a clear point of view, and then gets publicly pummeled by a vocal politically correct minority who forces him to succumb to a different position.

And this time, like I said, it was the Mormons who assumed, so to speak, a politically incorrect position on the issue of homosexuality.

It seems those straight-shooters in Utah had the temerity to say (are you ready for this?) that homosexuality is unnatural.  Can you believe that?   As reported by the AP today in an article entitled, “LDS leader’s speech on gays modified on website,” we read:

National gay rights activists have called for Packer to recant statements that homosexuality is unnatural and can be overcome, calling the comments factually inaccurate and dangerous.

And this Mormon Packer dude caved, apparently based on some unspoken “facts.” 

I’d like to see the facts that indicate homosexuality is natural.  I could use those kinds of facts.  I’ve been pushing people down this path by peddling lies for decades.  You mean there are facts?  That homosexuality is natural?  Those must be some facts.  That’s like saying celibacy is natural; if it was natural it would not be natural for long!

But facts or no facts, what I find delicious is the continuing tendency of Christians and people who call themselves Christians to continually capitulate to “facts” that clearly contradict their own authority.  I know the Bible pretty well (I’ve quoted scripture to Jesus’ face!), for example, and what I read in the Bible is clear: not only is homosexuality called unnatural (Romans 1:26), it is an abomination

Look, my servants, I’m all for burning the Bible and banishing all thought of its content.  But it is what it is.

Are church folk trying to be relevant?  Or do they just want to go along to get along?  I don’t know.  But I like it.  Each step church boys take backward is a step I take forward.  Ha ha ha ha ha.  And I’m rolling, baby.  Are there no men among them?

By the way, here’s a thought: I wonder what gays would think is unnatural.  Sex with animals?  Why? Who are they to say?  Sex with baby girls?  Hmmm?  Unnatural? On what authority?  Because you don’t think it’s natural?  Who are you?  Because millions like you don’t think it’s natural?  Who are they?

The dirty little secret (shhhh) is that if there is no God, then there is nothing that is unnatural.  Every behavior, no matter how perverse and repulsive, and regardless of anyone’s objection, is natural by definition.  What else could it be? 

Without God, we would all be left to determine what is right in our own eyes.  Which is, by the way, exactly what’s happening. Ha ha ha ha ha.

And you want to know what’s right in my eyes?  OK, I’ll tell you:

Unnatural sex acts.  If you do this, you do my will.  And you please me.

Calling unnatural sex acts natural.  If you do this you please me even more.

Create an environment where unnatural behavior cannot be rationally critiqued without the threat of public scorn, or even official punishment.  If you do this you please me exceedingly.

Teach all the little children of the world that what God calls unnatural is natural.  Do this and you please me beyond my wildest dreams.

And perhaps my greatest commandment on this issue:  Don’t ever speak out against, or other wise try to stop, anyone engaged in the above.  Do this and you will be a candidate for Ainthood on these issues.

Go, my servants, and do my will on earth as it is in Hell.

License to . . . preach?

Minor setback today, my servants.  Minor setback.

But if I was going to let setbacks stop me, I would have stopped a few thousand years ago.  Setbacks are only bumps in the wide way of my kingdom.  I trust my servants will capitalize on the opening now open to me and mine.

Here’s the scoop: Some Vermont, USA, man wanted to have a license plate on his car with some preachy, offensive Christian message like “JHN 3 16” or something, and the authorities rightly put a stop to it.  You can’t have taxpayers paying for proselytizing in public!  There are children out and about.

But AP is reporting in a story entitled, “Vt. man wins religious vanity plates case appeal” that on appeal a three-judge panel reversed this decision.  Now Vermont residents can “express themselves” about religion along with other personal information. 

Not only is this a setback because all those God punks are going to start preaching the Gospel 6 or 7 letters at a time, but I’m at a distinct disadvantage.  God punks have the BIBLE, which is conveniently divided up into chapters and verses, so that all these busy-body road preachers can put big chunks of GodSpeak into code. 

And I don’t have anything equivalent. 

But not to fear — here’s where you, my faithful servants come in.  There’s no reason why some of my best wisdom couldn’t be put into “chapter and verse” format.  Do it!  Take the Humanist Manifesto, for example.  There is hardly any greater compilation of my wisdom on earth than that found in the Humanist Manifesto I and Humanist Manifesto II and Humanist Manifesto III. (Maybe we could call them “Old Testament,” “New Testament,” and, . . . “New-er Testament”?)

Humanist Manifesto I is short, sweet, and right on in its characterization of Humanism as “Religious Humanism.”  All you “secular humanists” out there are not only “secular” you are “religious.”   Secular Humanism, Atheism, New Age, etc., etc., they are all religions I wish others to follow, and you religiously humanistic faithful can help by getting some kind of code that lends itself to license plates.

Maybe the Humanist Manifesto could be abbreviated as HuMan.  After all, it was thought up by humans (with a little help from me, of course) and relies on the wisdom of this world. 

For example, “HuMan 2:1” could refer to the First Section of the  Humanist Manifesto II, which includes two of my favorite lies:

“But we can discover no divine purpose or providence for the human species,”

and 

“No deity will save us; we must save ourselves.” 

Now, these were smart people that put this gem of a Manifesto together, mind you.  And if those geniuses can not discover any divine purpose or providence for the human species, then it must be true.  Who are you, you little twit of a nobody to question people so wise in their own eyes.  You better believe them, including the part about no deity to save you.  They know; you are on your own.  

So help me out here, folks.  Why can’t I get a few license plates out there with something clever like “HuMan 2:1” or “NO PRPSE” or “NO DEITY” or “NOSLVTN”?  If you believe my lies, start wearing your religion on your car!  People will eventually figure it out.  Get the plates, dude!

And then there’s “HuMan 2:2” which is the Second Section of the Humanist Manifesto II, which reads:

“Promises of immortal salvation or fear of eternal damnation are both illusory and harmful.” 

That’s one of my best lies!  I suppose that this promise that a promise is harmful can’t itself be harmful, right?  Ha ha ha ha ha.  And people believe this!

So I can imagine a license plate: “HUMAN 2 2” or “NO HELL” or “NOFROFDTH” or some other cool call out to me and my kingdom.

And we can’t leave out the Sixth Section of the Humanist Manifesto II, which includes my most pervasive lie of all:

“Short of harming others or compelling them to do likewise, individuals should be permitted to express their sexual proclivities and pursue their life-styles as they desire.” 

Woo hoo!  Not only have I woven this lie into the fabric of all of society, I made it so everyone is compelled to go along, even if it hurts!  If your sexual proclivity is abstinence, and you believe in a marraige-only, one-partner life-style, good luck baby; just see if you can “express” those proclivities. Ha ha ha ha ha.

So let’s see a license plate from a true believer in Secular Humanism that has sexual proclivities toward animals, like “COW SEX” or maybe someone whose life-style includes proclivities toward cartoon child porn (who’s it hurting?) with “LTL TV BOYS” or “FAKE PORN”.  See how fun this could be?

Now are you secular humanists, agnostics, and other servants of mine going to let Vermont be run over by a bunch of God punks?

I didn’t think so.  Go, my servants, and do my will on earth as it is in Hell.
