Jebus is busy this week!

Jebus' faithful are suing UC Berkeley for, get this, violating seperation of church and state. I quote from the article:

Anti-evolutionists claim that the site breaches the American constitution on the separation of church and state because it links to religious organisations which believe faith can be reconciled with Darwin's theory of evolution.

Wow! I'm impressed. This is the first time I can think of that Jebus-Firsters have sued for seperation of church and state. UC Berkeley's site explains evolution and provides links to sites that suggest Faith and Science can coexist. Sounds balanced to me. Obviously, proponants of Intelligent Design aren't interested in balance. They are only interested in promoting their point of view.

Praise Jebus and pass the blinders!

(I swear, I'm not trying to do all of these things at once. All these stories came along at the same time.)

San Antonio Saints? Uh, no.

Since this site has become "The NEW Home of Compassion on the Web™©," it is incumbant upon me to comment on the recent spate of newspaper articles proposing the relocation of the 'Aints, I mean, Saints.

I beleive that regardless of merit, record, talent and skill, the New Orleans Saints should be Super Bowl XL champs this year. Many of these players lost homes, possibly family members. They probably lost friends who were killed and raped at the superdome by the wandering gangs the media reported. Many of them didn't receive the FEMA debit cards that have been spotted at so many strip clubs. Declaring them Super bowl XL Champions should be done by proclamation, and not by an actual game. And, by Jebus, if Hillary were President, we would see just such an act of compassion and fairness. But, she ain't, so we won't.

But hijacking the team? That's so. . .Republican!

Relocating the Saints now is, at best, in bad taste, and at worst, the cheapest sort of crass commercialism that this country seems to reward. It's like putting up the Christmas decorations on Labor Day, and the Easter decorations on Thanksgiving. It's like that annoying X-10 spy camera pop-up ad we all hated. Hell, it's like any pop-up or pop-under ad!

If the Saints want to relocate to San Antonio after they are given the Super Bowl Championship they are due because of their suffering as a result of Katrina, and after the Superdome is repaired, then Jebusspeed! But not now!

Besides, who needs another losing Texas team to steal attention from my beloved Texans?

A convicted Romanian murderer is suing God for breach of contract. He says that his Baptism was a contract with God to keep him out of trouble, however, he still killed someone. The court will likely dismiss the suit, since they can't figure out how to serve God with a subpoena.

Maybe they should subpoena Pat Robertson, since he claims to speak for God.

Praise Jebus pass the Tort Reform!

Tennessee City Councilmen are having to interpret a law banning construction work on Sunday and apply it to do-it-yourselfers. This all came about when a Code Enforcement officer tried to stop a contractor from doing some work, only to find a nearby homeowner doing the exact same thing.

"The ordinance reads no building operations, including erection, excavation, demolition, alteration or repair of any building in any residential area in the city, can be done on Sundays," Codes and Inspections Director Ferrell White said.
"Can we specify no commercial work on Sundays?" Alderman Miles Johnson said.
"What about Seventh-day Adventists?" Alderman Charles Raines said. "They go to church on Saturday."
"What about stating that anything that requires a permit can't be done on Sundays?" Alderman Brandon McCulloch said.
"Permits are required for most stuff," White said. "Fences, decks, patios. But right now, if a homeowner wanted to build an arbor or a patio or a deck, he could not do that on a Sunday."

These folks shouldn't be working anyway. Sunday is Jebus Day. Unless your Seventh Day Adventist. If you're Jewish, isn't the Sabbath on Saturday? And, just to be fair, shouldn't we prohibit work when Muslims are praying?

Praise Jebus and pass the decking nails!

Shortly after Katie Couric plugged an upcoming segment that would talk of the apparently staged interview Bush had with some troops in Iraq, the Today Show cut to correspondent Michelle Kosinski in New Jersey covering the floods. She started her report sitting in a blue canoe explaining how deep the water was. Then two men walked by. In front of her. A couple of feet in front of her.

So, Katie. Explain to me how staging a news story is bad, again?

Am I the only one who is concerned about the psychological health of Katrina victims? Am I the only one who cares whether or not these people get everything they need to rebuild their lives?

Obviously, I must be.

Once more, the NFL-Bush coalition has oppressed the hapless New Orleans Saints. Unwilling to allow the homeless Saints a chance to gain self esteem, the Atlanta Falcons kicked a late field goal to force the Saints to slink from the stadium, humiliated. I didn't know Cheney was an owner of the Falcons.

If you don't take steps to make the Saints named Super Bowl champs this year, you have no compassion. I am shocked and saddened by the attitude in this country. Perhaps it's time to camp at the gates of Bush's Crawford ranch and demand justice for the victims of Katrina!
