Jon Stewart, Muppets and Boston tell Homophobic Dan Cathy Chick-fil-A to shove off

There is not much one can do about the Boy Scouts of America in all this. After all, it is already a Man-Boy organization. As Waylon and Willie said so well, Mama don’t let your sons become uniform and yellow scarf wearing scout leaders…

As to Dan Cathy and his Chick-fil-A franchise, it is more than easy to consider it a drive by rather than a drive in. I have been making a point of not going there for a decade or so after I heard they were at the forefront of denying women the right to choose.  But as you well know, to many if not most followers of Jesus, INTOLERANCE IS BEAUTIFUL!  And hey, even down here in dumbutt Chick-fil-As are rare which I would now suspect they will become even rarer where the snow flies. And they are closed on Sundays, which is the biggest  chicken day of the week in every market. Go figure…

As one of my evangelical fundamentalist creationist pro life family members explains to me so often, “I did not ever claim that any of my beliefs or arguments were logical or reasonable.”  At least she is honest, though it is the following line that always gets me, “The scripture in the Bible is the hand written word of God without error.” Which was translated from Aramaic, to Greek, to Latin by Monks from the DARK AGES who had their balls cut off so they could have a place to live and eat rather than live in the mud. And to make it even sillier, the scripture she reads was again translated into English by Middle Age Englishmen following the instructions of the more than Catholic King James. More recently it has been translated a few more times for money.

My favorite Bible quote is this one…

“Neither was there any among them that lacked; for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of things that were sold, And laid them down at the apostles feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.” Acts of the Apostles’ 4-34

Which goes will with this…

“From each according to their ability, to each according to their need.” Karl Marx.
