  •  Fundamentalism is diseased-Christianity. (9+ / 0-)

    I've loathed these pious tapeworms since the 1980s when I saw them swallow my secular college campus whole. You couldn't walk to the library without some hateful little whiteboy Reagan-Clone for Jeezis screaming at the women and perceived-gays. They shut down the Women's Center (accused it of being "pro-lesbian") and replaced it with some piss-ass "Future Housewives and Mommies Encouragement Place" or something like that. I'll never forget three women with blissful lobotomized smiles telling me how liberating it was to submit to their husbands and follow their orders.

    There's a reason I danced on the day Falwell died - and raged at all the (straight white male) bloggers wringing their hands over us Not Being Bigger People about it.

    They had one positive effect on me, though. I'd been raised Catholic - but their toxic witnessing made me start questioning my own beliefs and upbringing. Thanks to them, I rejected Catholicism - and all other versions of Christianity.

    If ONLY we could give these evil snakes a taste of REAL religious persecution. It involves lions.

      The "Accept Jesus as your personal lord and savior" crowd wasn't even around when I was growing up in the '50's and '60's.  None in the USAF - no Fundamentalist right-wing Chaplains.  It was a great time for those of us who hated proselytizing and in-your-face Jesus Camp brats and delusional adults.

    •  No fake tears for Falwell (0+ / 0-)

      from me, either.  I agreed with Hitchens, who said out loud on television right after Falwell's death what many of us were thinking:

      "If you gave him an enema, you could bury him in a matchbox"
