The Lady Speaks

Good ‘Christians’?

Yesterday the netroots was alive and agape at the news that Amanda Marcotte of Pandagon and Melissa McEwan of Shakespeare’s Sister had resigned their positions with the Edwards campaign.

Why? In part, because both felt they were taking attention from John Edwards’ campaign and message. But also because of threats on their lives (and bodies) by the so-called ‘Christians.’

These Christianists, angry at Amanda and Melissa for perceived insults and intolerance against their religion, as well as the profanity used by both, have responded in ways that defile their own religion, their own beliefs, the teachings of their own Church and their Lord.

Here’s a sample of the ‘Christian love” Amanda received:

Problem with women like you, you just need a good fucking from a real man! Living in Texas myself, I know you haven’t found that real Texan yet. But once your liberal pro feminist ass gets a real good fucking, you might see the light. Until then, enjoy your battery operated toys b/c most real men wouldn’t want to give you the fucking you deserve b/c the shit that would come out of you ears.

Such a good Catholic Christian, isn’t he? Just filled with the love of Christ! I had to pull out my Bible, because I didn’t remember the part where Jesus grabbed the woman who said curse words and said, “Verily, I say unto thee, a good f*ck would fix you.”

It’s just too bad your mother didn’t abort you. You are nothing more than a filthy mouth slut. I bet a couple of years in Iraq being raped and beaten daily would help you appreciate America a little. Need a plane ticket ?

Feel the love. One wonders how the Catholic Church can manage to build such love and tolerance amongst its members. It must be all that priest-on-kid action that does it.


Misogyny, thy name is religion. What would they have said had these two bloggers been men? I’m sure men would have gotten the standard “cut your balls off with a rusty knife” but certainly none of these “good Catholics” would have threatened rape. None would have told a male blogger that all he needs to see the light is a good f*cking.

The various Christian churches spawn some very good people who truly live their lives as Christ taught. I even know a few of them. Too bad none of them get to be on the talking-head shows. Instead, we get to listen to bigoted, racist, misogynistic, and completely un-Christian Bill Donohue.

What’s even more laughable [or is it pathetic?] his organization is called the “Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights.”

Here’s what it says on their “About Us” page: [sorry, no linking to assh*les]

The Catholic League is the nation’s largest Catholic civil rights organization. Founded in 1973 by the late Father Virgil C. Blum, S.J., the Catholic League defends the right of Catholics – lay and clergy alike – to participate in American public life without defamation or discrimination.

Motivated by the letter and the spirit of the First Amendment, the Catholic League works to safeguard both the religious freedom rights and the free speech rights of Catholics whenever and wherever they are threatened.

The irony of this group safe-guarding the rights of Catholics “whenever and wherever they are threatened.” Maybe the Catholic League should add “by threatening those who aren’t like us.”
Here’s some of the ways Mr. Donohue spreads the “Good News” :

“Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. It‘s not a secret, OK? And I‘m not afraid to say it.”

“Hollywood likes anal sex.”

“Now, in this country, we are civilized. We don’t appreciate it when somebody sticks it to you in the name of freedom of speech, sir. We condemn it. But over there, they take the uncivilized approach. And then they wonder why so many people don’t trust the Muslims when it comes to liberty, because they will abuse it. In this country, we prize freedom of religion. They abhor it.”

“This same guy [Dean Hamer] came up with this idea of the gay gene. I remember when that conversation was going on. Gays were all of a sudden worrying if people would start aborting kids when they found out the DNA suggested the kid might be gay or God forbid, we’d run out of little gay kids, so all of a sudden, they became pro-life.”

Many thanks to Media Matters which catalogues this bile so I don’t have to.

As Gandhi said, I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

  2. My mother had a wonderful spirituality, and faith, in the Lord and in the ability of mankind to serve one another best, when not encumbered by religion. She like to point out that Paul advised against forming churches, and religions, because they would focus on the leader or the church itself, and forget Christ. He said do not say “I am of Paul, or of Timothy”
    Wherever two or more are gathered. Well, of course, that was just the way the Bible recommended worshipping.
    They worried about us secular beings taking Christ out of Christmas, I am more upset that they have taken Christ out of Christianity.
    Love one another, as I have loved you…
    That was his greatest Commandment.
    Then there is “Judge not, lest ye be judged.”
    Yes, he even meant Catholics.
