A Voice of Reason: Sane Views for a Crazy World

April 7, 2007

Idiots on Parade, Westboro Baptist Church and War Protesters, MainStream America

These two groups of idiots on parade deserve each other. One could hope that they were locked in a small room with each other for long periods of time.

This blog has often mocked idiots on parade, they merited it.

However, the ultra Right also has their own group of idiots, and this group of “people” are just as bad, if not worse than the linked idiots. Fortunately, this group, though well known is not well populated. If you are in the mood to get angry watch this video of these pure a**holes of the week. These “people” momentrarily made me ashamed to be associated with Christianity, then I remembered, their beliefs of hatred have nothing to do with Christ.

Then again, the idiots on the Left also like to brainwash their children in the ways of hatred. Maybe these two famlies can do lunch.

And it seems letting kids become future idiots on parade is not just left for the politically minded, but is key to developing good sportsmanship.

Hopefully all of these people will get a Darwin Award, and keep their genes out of the future gene pool.



  1. Good God those kids should be taken away from them!

  2. I don’t know what to say. It’s wrong on so many levels.

  3. Depressing, I agree, but always it is good to be validated by the insane behavior of others.

  4. Are these pictures with with kids for real? The video is almost funny except that Christianity is not a joke. I’m reading a book on predestination and I’m hoping to find some answers to this type of behavior.

    Thanks for the links.

  5. Of course the only way one qualifies to win the Darwin Award is to die thereby assuring that their incredibly stupid genes don’t continue to pollute the gene pool. Since none of these fools are quite dead yet there is no possibility of nomination. Such a shame.

    I never mind good, rational argument. It seems to me, however, that in the past few decades rationality is being replaced by shouting and dogmatic posturing. Blame it on the radical right, the Christian fundamentalists, or whatever. I think Fox News is the culprit, or maybe CNN. When all political pundits do is shout at one another on the airways what are the ‘great unwashed’ to think. If this is the model then we have exactly what we deserve.

  6. Roger,
    One can only hope for them somehow getting the award in the near future. I tolerate fools more than ideologues.

    The ideologues of both the left and the right are equally abyssmal. While there is need for lively debate, the level of demagoguery has reached proportions which are making cooperation and synthesis in the formation of policy nearly impossible.

  7. E.I.
    I really have come to the conclusion that these people are desparately lost. St. James states that it is impossible to have bitter and sweet water flow out of the same spring. I would pose that these people have a form of godliness, but deny the power to live a Christ like life. Perhaps I am wrong in judging them, and I will leave that to other hands.

  8. I am with you all the way. Fools are one thing. Ideologues are quite another. Too bad that lively debate has given way to 30 second sound bites, half-truths uttered with no counter. To follow Bill–It’s the media, stupid! Or maybe, It’s the stupid media! That’s why, in spite of all its faults the blogosphere offers the greatest hope for renewed and thoughtful citizen based debate. I remain forever hopeful.

  9. Well, an open debate with civility is what society needs. This used to happen, and I’m not sure what started the downfall that has so polarized the nation. It is pre W and probably pre-Clinton. I’m just not sure when the two parties and two philosophies decided the other wasn’t worth listening to.

  10. The Westboro Baptist Church isn’t a church but a cult of extremely, sick people. I do not even consider them a part of the extreme right because they are barely human. The abusive, evil things that they promote in the name of Christ is sickening. They do not represent Christians or anyone on the right, just their own sick hatred of other people made in the image of God.

    Fred Phelps and his ilk have so upset me that I keep meaning to do an extensive post on them, exposing them for who they are.

  11. Let me know when you do, I’ll track it.

    I am not a hard religious Conservative in any way, as my views concerning Christianity tend to make me more progressive, much to the chagrin of a lot of people out there, even in my own family. However, consider that a post in a pretty hard right blog about gay marriage had 150 comments the last time I checked, and among the gay bashing, and other bashing, were the Bible verses smattered in for special effects.

    I find it awful when Christianity, which I feel is all about how God is not angry with man, has been used by so many as a club in the religious and the societal arena.
