Courtesy of Right Wing Watch. And these are just some of the choicer selections from the jar of mixed nuts. I know, it's tempting to laugh, but never turn your back on these folks. You'll find a knife in it.
Ben Carson is a retired neurosurgeon. And by all accounts he was a good one. Now he wants to be president. Frankly the only thing he has going for him is the fact that he's an African American because some of his ideas are way out there. Ben Carson: Congress should oust judges who rule for marriage equality. Because after all, so many states held referendums which defined marriage as between a man and a woman. OK sir, which of your civil rights do you want to leave the tender mercies of a majority of your fellow citizens?
Haven't heard from Glenn Beck for awhile. Our founding principals require that Christianity receive preferential treatment. This particular outburst was brought on when atheist and satanist groups on Orange County Florida sought equal time with right wing religious groups who were handing out free Bibles in public schools on National Freedom of Religion Day. This has been going on for three years. Note. The groups were not trying to end the Bible distribution they just wanted equal time. The school district ended the program. Geez, what part of separation of church and state are you not getting? And which version? The several flavors of Orthodox? Roman Catholics? The heaven knows how many varieties of Protestants? Half of whom can't stand the other half?
An anti gay marriage activist, Randy Thomasson founder of Save California, believes that Republican governors can call out the National Guard to stop clerks from issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples. I have absolutely no idea how this is supposed to work. And frankly, I'm not sure he does either. Block the doors to the clerk's office? Make sure that only hetero couples go into the clerk's office. Should he go sit in the corner with his fingers in his ears humming loudly while the guardsmen laugh their asses off? Although that would probably beat being deployed to the Middle East. Again.
And last but not least. This is from a Sandy Rios who is one of the talking heads for the American Family Association. I know I've never heard of her either. She claims that Obama used subliminal Islamic messages during the State of the Union address. She also believes that the president, who attended a Church of Christ congregation for twenty years while living in Chicago, is a secret Muslim. Well, I guess there's a quick way to check that out. Check the White House menus. Has the first family been eating pork products lately. But, I guess in the Pluto orbiting world of conspiracy theories if bacon has been on the menu it would be because of a special dispensation to throw the true believers off track. (sarcasm button turned off).
Anyway, apparently when the president referred to the pillars that uphold American power he was referring to the Five Pillars of Islam and not our military. I suppose if he says something favorable about kale or broccoli he's a secret Vegan.
Oh, those activist judges. Funny, these guys and gals aren't lining up to overturn that over reach on the right, Citizens United. My activist judges good. Your activist judges? Just this side of the Antichrist.
