This just makes me sick.

The ACLU at times has battled San Diego in court over a historic cross on a veterans’ memorial and the use of city facilities by the Boy Scouts, collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars of money from city taxpayers for its efforts.

Now the city is considering a plan to honor the organization.

“San Diego City Councilwoman Toni Atkins and Council President Scott Peters have placed on the city council docket one of the most despicable and anti-Christian items in recent years. They are planning to declare American Civil Liberties Union Day in the city of San Diego,” warned James Hartline, who himself is a candidate for the city council this year.

ACLU, ropes, trees…you guys know the drill.

I’ve been a conservative Southern Baptist most of my life.  My earliest memory of Southern Baptist churches came almost to the day that my mother divorced my father.

Up until that point, and for a time right after “hah skrewl” (a little Rush lingo, there) when I was in a rebellious period of my life, I was a Presbyterian.  But soon as mother divorced dad, she began to go to the church where her mother had been a longtime member.  And dragged me and the Sibling Unit™ along with her.  And thereafter, I’d always felt most comfortable…well, more comfortable than not…in the Southern Baptist Convention.  Especially after the conservative takeover thereof in the 1980s.

That all ended Sunday night, when I read this RCOB-inducing bullshit.

In a major shift, a group of Southern Baptist leaders said their denomination has been “too timid” on environmental issues and has a biblical duty to stop global warming.

The declaration, signed by the president of the Southern Baptist Convention among others and released today, shows a growing urgency about climate change even within groups that once dismissed claims of an overheating planet as a liberal ruse.

We’ll forget for a minute that this country just went through one of the coldest, if not the  coldest, winters in history.  I mean, even though the frigid-as-a-witch’s-tit temps generally missed Dallas/Fort Worth, we still got our share of cold weather – it even snowed nine fucking inches  in parts of the Metromess the other day.  Putting that aside for just a minute, the very fact that it’s the liberal Donktards pushing this Glow-bullshit Wormening™ thing on us, not even wanting to invite debate on the matter, should  have the heretofore-conservative Convention raising red flag after red flag after red flag – right?

Oh, but not only no, but HELL NO!  (Pun only partially intended.)

“We believe our current denominational resolutions and engagement with these issues have often been too timid,” according to the statement.

I’d probably have to agree with that statement.  Their reactions have been “too timid” in that they apparently have lacked sufficient spine to tell the Left Reverend Albert Arnold Algore, The Mostest Mostest Highest (on what exactly, who can say?) Glow-bull Wormening Goreacle™, exactly what he could go do with all of these so-called “issues” of his.

Not to mention trying to shove some of the aforementioned March D/FW snow up his fat ass.

“Our cautious response to these issues in the face of mounting evidence may be seen by the world as uncaring, reckless and ill-informed. We can do better.”

Oh fer Cthulu’s ever-more-blasphemous sake.

“Mounting evidence” like nine inches of snow in March in a place where it won’t even snow in December, January or February most winters?  “Evidence” such as massive blasts of winter cold everywhere the Goreacle travels?  The fact that the average  temperature has risen one whole fuckin’ degree in the last century  or so?

“We can do better” my ass.  Quit trying to sound like John-boy F’n Qetchup-Ass and pandering to the environ-mental case asshats, huh?

But these paragraphs here, Denizens, are what have my blood boiling:

No one speaks on behalf of all Southern Baptists, who leave decision-making to local churches. Yet, the signatories of today’s resolution represent some of the top figures in the convention.

Among them are the denomination’s president, the Rev. Frank Page of South Carolina; two former presidents, the Rev. James Merritt of Georgia and the Rev. Jack Graham of Texas; and the Rev. Ronnie Floyd of Arkansas, who helped conservatives solidify control of the denomination in the 1970s and 1980s.

Didja see that name?  Jack Graham of Texas?

Up until this past Sunday night, that was  my pastor.  Yes, sportz fanz – I was a member (whether in good standing is anyone’s guess) at Prestonwood Baptist, where Graham rides herd.  And when I read that my pastor had signed this piece of abject bullshit, I promptly emailed him and told him – nicely, of course; he is  a pastor – what he and the Southern Baptist Convention could go do with themselves.

Memo to the SBC:  If I wanted to be a member of a liberal, touchy-feely, Gaia-worshipping cult, I’d go with the Pepsi-cola church.  Or the Unitarians.  Or the Catholics – hell, none of them worship Creator God anymore; what difference would it make?

But hey, SBC – enjoy pleasing mammon rather than the God who created you.  And do go get your Bibles and read Revelation 3:14-17.  Before you suffer the same fate that  church did.

Well, whaddya know?!  The Asshelmeted Crack Lickers Union has found a group of people claiming to follow Christ that it actually likes.

Wouldn’t you know that it’d be these bastards?

A Kansas church group that protests at military funerals nationwide filed suit in federal court, saying a Missouri law banning such picketing infringes on religious freedom and free speech.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit Friday in the U.S. District Court in Jefferson City, Mo., on behalf of the fundamentalist Westboro Baptist Church, which has outraged mourning communities by picketing service members’ funerals with signs condemning homosexuality.

But by all means, don’t demonize the ACLU.  That would be silly, and they do good work.

The church and the Rev. Fred Phelps say God is allowing troops, coal miners and others to be killed because the United States tolerates gay men and lesbians.

And in turn, these fucknozzles are bashing the same men & women who fight for the inbreds’ right to spew forth that bullshit.

Rather ironic, eh what?

Missouri lawmakers were spurred to action after members of the church protested in St. Joseph, Mo., last August at the funeral of Army Spec. Edward L. Myers.

The law bans picketing and protests “in front of or about” any location where a funeral is held, from an hour before it begins until an hour after it ends. Offenders can face fines and jail time.

A number of other state laws and a federal law, signed in May by President Bush, bar such protests within a certain distance of a cemetery or funeral.

A nice start, but I might have gone farther:  Exempt from criminal prosecution anyone who…ahhhhh…decided to physically intervene  on behalf of the honored dead and their families.  Would be interesting to see how much Phelps and his phellow pherret phelchers were willing to suffer for being such shitheels.

In the lawsuit, the ACLU says the Missouri law tries to limit protesters’ free speech based on the content of their message. It is asking the court to declare the ban unconstitutional and to issue an injunction to keep it from being enforced, which would allow the group to resume picketing.

“I told the nation, as each state went after these laws, that if the day came that they got in our way, that we would sue them,” said Phelps’s daughter Shirley L. Phelps-Roper, a spokeswoman for the church in Topeka, Kan.

And if you had to go for a romp in the hay with the Ass-phyxiated Caliphate Lickspittles’ Union – well, I hope you attention whores kept the KY handy, y’know?

“At this hour, the wrath of God is pouring out on this country.”

Yeah.  We’re having to listen to dipshits like you.

Scott Holste, a spokesman for Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon, said, “We’re not going to acquiesce to anything that they’re asking for in this lawsuit.”

You might consider countersuing them, just for the Hell™ of it.  Eh?

F.E.J.F.E.

Misha has a great piece on the true nature of the ACLU that you should go read.

One wonders what Dr. Herb Gamiscut (recent commenter to the Realm™) would think of Wiccan prayers being okay, but other prayers being a bit too Christian for some folks’ taste…

In yet another People’s Exhibit™ of how the Limp-dicked Llama-humping Left™ sides with the enemies of this country (what is this now, Number 3,836,949,003?), that veritable bastion of tolerance (except when it comes to conservatives or Christians), the ACLU, is throwing yet another tantrum in the name of the so-called “seperation of church and state”.

This time, they’re kvetching about the oath one swears when taking the stand in court.

In an effort to end the Bible’s monopoly on the swearing-in procedure in the courtroom, the American Civil Liberties Union is now suing the state of North Carolina.

A lawsuit has been filed in Superior Court in Wake County, N.C., on behalf of the organization’s statewide membership of approximately 8,000 individuals of many different faiths, including Islam and Judaism.

Ah yes.  The tried-and-true tactic of going through the courts to get what you can’t get through any other means.  Doing an end-around to thwart the will of the people, most of whom I’m guessing don’t want to be sworn in on a book written about the Pedophilic Pseudo-Prophet™.
