If My Body Were A Car 

If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. 

I’ve got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull.
But that’s not the worst of it!

My headlights are out of focus and it’s especially hard to see things up close.
 
My traction is not as graceful as it once was.  I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.
 
My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed.  My fuel rate burns inefficiently.
 
But here’s the worst of it . . . . . 
 
Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter . . . either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires!

It scares me that Extreme Right is actually getting away with knowingly telling outright lies about American history. It angers me that so-called moral ethical “Christians” feel no need to tell the truth. – Ninure da Hippie

b>David Barton’s Jefferson
— Martin E. Marty

Our premier historian of late colonial and early republican America, Gordon Wood, while reviewing a book on Roger Williams warms up readers with references to Thomas Jefferson. “It’s easy to believe in the separation of church and state when one has nothing but scorn for all organized religion. That was the position of Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson’s hatred of the clergy and established churches knew no bounds. He thought that members of the ‘priestcraft’were always in alliance with despots against liberty. For him the divine Trinity “was nothing but ‘Abracadabra’ and ‘hocus-pocus’. . . Ridicule, he said, was the only weapon to be used against it.”

If you wanted to promote the idea of “a Christian America,” one which would privilege one religion, a version of Christianity, and de-privilege all others, and if you want to get back to roots and origins, the last of the “founding fathers” on whom you’d concentrate would be Jefferson. Yet the most ardent public and pop advocate of privilege and virtual establishment, David Barton, cites Jefferson for Bartonian positions which are directly opposite of Jefferson’s. Never heard of David Barton? Most of the historians you would ever meet never heard of him, and if you told them about him and his positions, they would yawn or rage about listing him among those who deal honestly with Jefferson.

Sightingsdoes not over-do ad hominem and sneering references, so we leave to others all the disdaining that Barton so richly merits. Do note, however, that he has invented a case and product which serve his viewpoint and draw him enormous followings among “conservative” factions which oppose separation of church and state in most cases except those they choose. Listen to Mike Huckabee or Glenn Beck or rightist cable TV and you will find Barton showing up everywhere.

His favorite founder seems to be Jefferson, of all people. How does he work his way around to the prime builder of “a wall of separation between church and state,” in the metaphor that would not be my favorite. Sample: Thomas Jefferson, razor in hand snipped all supernatural references out of his copies of the Gospels (in the four languages he read in White House evenings), to keep Jesus as a pure ethical humanist. This spring Barton is publishing The Jefferson Lies, which most historians would title Barton’s Lies about Jefferson. Astonishingly, he twists a slight reference to Jefferson’s book on Jesus and turns it into a tract which, Barton says, Jefferson would use in order to convert the Indians to Christianity. Reviewer Craig Ferhman in the Los Angeles Times found all that Barton found to be “outrageous fabrication.” On TV, Barton even said, with no evidence, that Jefferson gave a copy of his Jesus book to a missionary, to use “as you evangelize the Indians.” Had the Indians been converted with that text, their heirs would have had no place to go but to what became the humanist wing of the Unitarian-Universalist church.

Why does any of this matter? One, basic honesty is at issue; do American religionists need to invent such stories in order to prevail? Two, what if they did prevail? Most of the founders thought that religion was most honest and compelling when its leaders and gatherings did not depend upon lies about the state and, of course, upon the state itself. “Separation of church and state” is admittedly a complex issue, dealing as it does with inevitable conflict and messiness in a free and lively republic. May debates over it go on, but with honest references to Jefferson and his colleagues and not on the grounds David Barton proposes.

“I trace the rainbow through the rain and see the promise is not in vain.”

Thus says the Lord: Act with justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor anyone who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the alien, the orphan, and the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place. For if you will indeed obey this word, then through the gates of this house shall enter kings who sit on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their servants, and their people. But if you will not heed these words, I swear by myself, says the Lord, that this house shall become a desolation.- Jeremiah 22:3-5

Rant: Trying not to Judge

I recently posted a Devotional from the “Stillspeaking people” about how we should avoid judging people.

I did NOT get thru the day without seeming to break my commitment to be more understanding, to try harder to understand how people can arrive at the political, religious, and spiritual positions so at odds from mine.

Let me rephrase that:

“…to try harder to understand how people who avow that they are Christianscan arrive at the political, religious, and spiritual positions so at odds from mine.”

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who tell the most outrageous lies?

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who feed racial dividions by promoting and speading bseless sterotypes?

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who impute the most horrible motivations to anyone and everyone who is the least bit different from them and/or their base in order to raise money or gain polircal office?

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who call Donald Trump, Glen Beck, Newt Gringrich, and Rush Limbaugh Christians, but refuse to acknowledge that Obama is a Christian?

Is it judgemental if when it comes to these “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politicians, spokespersons, politcos – I stop calling these people “my brothers and sisters in Christ”?

Seriously yours,

AMBIGUOUS RECOMMENDATIONS

AMBIGUOUS RECOMMENDATIONS

Robert Thornton, a professor of economics at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA, was, like many teachers, frustrated about having to write letters of recommendation for people with dubious qualifications, so he put together an arsenal of statements that can be read two ways. He calls his collection the “Lexicon of Inconspicuously Ambiguous Recommendations”, or LIAR, for short.

Thornton explains that LIAR may be used to offer a negative opinion of the
personal qualities, work habits or motivation of the candidate while allowing
the candidate to believe that it is high praise.

Some examples from LIAR:

* To describe a person who is extremely lazy: “In my opinion, you will be very
fortunate to get this person to work for you.”

* To describe a person who is totally inept: “I most enthusiastically
recommend this candidate with no qualifications whatsoever.”

* To describe an ex-employee who had problems getting along with fellow
workers: “I am pleased to say that this candidate is a former colleague of mine.”

* To describe a candidate who is so unproductive that the job would be better
left unfilled: “I can assure you that no person would be better for the job.”

* To describe a job applicant who is not worth further consideration: “I would
urge you to waste no time in making this candidate an offer of employment.”

* To describe a person with lackluster credentials: “All in all, I cannot say
enough good things about this candidate or recommend him too highly.”

Robert Thornton is right, isn’t he? We don’t like to hurt people’s feelings, but we don’t want to be totally dishonest either, so we are excited to find a way to be ambiguous. We call it ambiguity, speaking a half-truth, using mental reservation, twisting the truth a bit, being ambivalent. Perhaps at least Thornton was more honest when he called his collection “LIAR”.

It may be that no Christian characteristic has suffered more in the workplace than honesty. It shouldn’t be that way. Jesus wants his people to be known as a people of truth. It is important that those around us can trust what we say without wondering whether we really mean it or not.

“Therefore, putting away lying, each one speak truth with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.” (Ephesians 4:25).

Have a great day (and I say that in all truth)!

So NOW you’re Mad?

I emant to ree-post this awhile ago, but in light of the the fact that Super Tuesday is on supposed to be Tuesday, March 6, 2012., I thought this might be wirth sharing NOW. – Ninure da Hippie

So Now You’re Mad

By and via Vanessa Johnson Butler...

“IF ONLY THOSE WHO SEEM TO BE SO MAD AT PRESIDENT OBAMA WOULD READ THIS AND REFLECT A MOMENT, THEY MIGHT SAY:
Hmmmmmmmmmm… YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT!!………

Now, since Obama’s regime, all of a sudden, folks have gotten mad, and want to take America Back…BACK TO WHAT/WHERE is my question?

After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad?

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq.
You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn’t get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn’t get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.

You didn’t get mad when they didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when Bush ran up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn’t get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the 1%, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks.

You didn’t get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.

You didn’t get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.

You didn’t get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values.

You finally got mad when a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick…

PS. This one definitely needs to be circulated just for a reminder sake!”

A Ranr from the past: Value Voters

Some things never change….This post was actually written in 2008.

I only mention it because of the reference to Clinton. I suppose I could have re-written, but yesterday for some reason, I saw at least four negative mentions of Mr. Clinton.

Otherwise, my feelings I had when I wrote this haven’t changed much. Maybe the Republicans scare me a bit more…

===================================================================

When you were a kid, did you ever try to get away with doing something by saying, “But soand-so did it first”?

Did it EVER work?

It never did for me, I can tell you. In fact saying something like that usually got me harsher punishement for being “stupid”. There was no excuse for doing something that I knew, or even suapected was wrong.

I bring his up, because I ‘ve gotten a “message” or two from people claiming that i am being unfair to conservatives by “calling out” them on theirr lies, distortions”, and flip flops.

A few people were highly upset because I stated that it seems to me that conservatives act as if they think “dishonesty” is a moral value.

“What about Obama1″, the cry. (Well at least that’s a slight improvement over, What anbout Clinton”) “What about the Dems/Liberals??!!??”

What about about about them?

Maybe if my side was running around claiming that the people who voted for us were “value voters”, “you” might have a point.

But you and your talking heads are the ones who claim thay YOu and you alone are the true Christians. You’re the ones who claim that the GOP is the party of “family values”.

You’re the ones who demand that the 10 Commandments (one of which FORBIDS lying BTW) and “religious” symbols be placed on public prroperty , and that there be prayer in schools.

So if you tell me you’re the true Christians, and the defenders of all that is right and decent, shouldn’t I be able to expect you to act “right and decent”?.,

Help me, O Lord my God!
Save me according to your steadfast love.
Let them know that this is your hand;
you, O Lord, have done it.
Let them curse, but you will bless.
Let my assailants be put to shame; may your servant be glad.
– Psalm 109:26-28

We are going to render an account to God, not only for our idle words, but also for our ill-considered silence.
– John Trithemius
Rule


I have decided to include the following link in my blog posts from now until the November elections: http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/obama.asp

Please send this link to everyone and anyone you know who tells you things about Obama that you know is untruthful or an outright smear.

People often say with pride, “I’m not interested in politics.” They might as well say, “I’m not interested in my standard of living, my health, my job, my rights, my freedoms, my future, or any future.”

You know your are a Conservative Christian if….

This a long list!

Your friendly Hippie found this in her fles, and it appears to have been coomposed in part by a friend of mine name Mark T. I hpnestly don’t know ow much is “mine”, how much is Mark’s. and how much comes from elsewhere. (I used to collect tis stuff).

Anyway, tho I may not agree with some of this, I present this for your consideration.

>You Know You’re a Fundie if…

– Rather than using the Bible as the basis of your arguments, you form your
arguments first and look for quotes in the Bible you can spin for support.

– You think that everyone who doesn’t agree with you is working together for
some “agenda”.

– You learn about differing views from everyone except the people who
actually hold those views.

– You claim that science has no evidence and takes everything on faith, then
proclaim that your position doesn’t need evidence because you have faith.

– You denounce science for dogmatically holding to beliefs in one breath,
then denounce it for changing its position too frequently in the next.

– You measure the validity of evidence based on how well it supports what
you already think.

– When reality and the Bible contradict, you accuse reality of being wrong.

– You marvel at the infinite complexity of life, the universe, and
everything, yet insist that everything you ever need to know about it can be
condensed into a two inch thick book.

– You only follow the parts of the bible that jive with your own life, and
you call the ones you don’t follow, ‘Written for a different time.’

– You’re cured by modern science and medicine and then claim it was all due
to god.

– If it isn’t mentioned in the bible, it’s the work of satan.

– You claim the bible is the inerrant word of god despite the contradictions
and numerous re-writes.

– You think every tough question can be answered, ‘Goddidit’.

– You think Noah had polar bears, koala bears and panda bears on the ark.

– You shun evolution but think talking snakes are just dandy.

– You think ‘liberal’, ‘atheist’ and ‘satan’ all mean the same thing.

– You defend the idea that Hitler is in heaven and Ghandi is in hell.

– You whisper the medical terms for genitals or give them cutesy names.

– You claim that god’s will is determined even before each person is born,
yet you beseech him with prayers to change said plan.

– You don’t find it odd that Pat Robertson is worth half a billion dollars
and yet he asks you for more money.

– You live in abject fear.

– You think about how homosexuals have sex, A LOT.

– You are a misogynist.

– You defend biblical slavery.

– You ignore Adam, god and the serpent and blame Eve for original sin.

– Despite their same origins, you claim Jews and Muslims have satanic
religions.

– You know who ‘The Real Christians’ are.

– You know that the voice in your head is god and not Satan or a mental
disorder.

– Your God hates all the same people you hate.

– You praise God when humans are charitable and kind to one another; but you
curse humans sinful nature when a natural disaster destroys a town.

– You believe there is a worldwide conspiracy of evil atheist scientists who
are trying to trick the world into believing in evolution for some unspoken,
possibly demonic reason.

– You believe one’s political party determines their salvation.

– You believe every human life is sacred, but are willing to destroy it if
said life belongs to a liberal, Jew, Muslim, atheist, homosexual, or
feminist.

– You believe the Iraqi War is a holy war.

– Your idea of absolute morality just happens to embody the values and mores
of your particular culture and geographical region.

– You relish in telling people they are going to Hell, the more trivial the
offense the better.

– Just being able to conceive of an alternative explanation of anything,
regardless of evidence, is considered sufficient means to refute something.

– You believe the universe is 6,000 years old, and the millions of pieces of
evidence to the contrary are either faked or illusions.

– You say that if God didn’t exist, you’d be a suicidal drug-abusing
criminal, because apparently the promise of a reward in the afterlife is the
only thing worth being a decent person for.

-You feel insulted when a scientists suggest we evolved from apes, but have
no problem with the bible claiming we were created from dirt.

– Your idea of sound science is using conclusions to test the validity of
evidence rather than using evidence to test the validity of conclusions.

– You call people fascists for opposing a religious totalitarian government.

– You think that the theory of evolution was set up as direct opposition to
the Bible and is supposed to cover everything that Genesis did.

– You attribute all the world’s woes to arbitrary groups of people.

– You find pretty much anything that people do for enjoyment to be sinful.

-You claim that although god is all powerful, 98% of the human race will
burn for all eternity because they didn’t accept Christ your way.

-You think anyone that has a different opinion is under the influence of
Satan.

-You think you can only look at the bible one way and any other way is
wrong.

-You throw random bible verses at people to support every arguement.

-You claim that humans have no idea what love or god is even though we we’re
created in his image.

– You think that the discovery of one item younger than 6,000 years old
refutes the millions of items much older, but the millions of items much
older do not refute your one.

– You call for a boycott of telephone and electric companies because they
inevitably provide services to homosexuals.

– You’re absolutely certain that you’re 100% right about everything and that
everyone who is not you is going to Hell.

– You are incapable of finding humor in anything except human suffering.

– You believe God is the only ‘thing’ that can be infallible, but turn
purple at the suggestion you may be wrong about something.

– You believe it a perfectly reasonable reaction of an omniscient,
omnibenevolent deity to send bears to slaughter forty-two children for
mocking a guy’s bald head.

– You believe there must be a rational, caring reason for God to condone the
dashing of babies against rocks…you just don’t know what it is.

– You believe that an omnipotent and omnibenevolent god sacrificed himself
to himself so that he could violate an arbitrary rule that he made up and
save his creation from his own wrath. And it makes sense to you.

-You insist that you can’t possibly understand the Bible unless you already
believe it to be completely true.

– You actually think Harry Potter/D&D is the work of Satan.

– You think the KJV is the best version of the Bible.

– You’re homophobic…but then take great pleasure in graphic descriptions
of anal sex.

– You think that Homosexuality is a choice and can be changed. Either that
or you believe its demon possession.

– You think that only gay men have AIDS and that AIDS is a punishment for
doing homosexual acts.

– You believe the Rapture’s gonna come any day now…

-You think that a 99.9%-.1% split in the scientific community between
evolution-creation means that there is a raging controversy.

-You think that the .1% of the scientists who accept creation are honest
truth seekers (even if they all share a common religion and agenda) while
you just KNOW that the 99.9% of evolutionists who are comprised of many
cultures/religions (some christian) are evil satan worshipers

-You think that a scientifically illiterate public knows better than the
scientists

-You are in favor of teaching all the sides of the debate, but are offended
at the suggestion that OTHER creation myths be taught.

-You think that creation-science is just as valid as geocentric-science and
flat-earth-science

– You believe the ultimate defining factor of a person’s morality is their
sex life.

-God speaks the same language as you

-You believe Martin Luther founded Christianity in 1517, and the Bible was
first revealed to King James in 1611

-You’re not a mysogynist; if you hated women you wouldn’t want to own one

-You’re not a homophobe; if you were afraid of gays you wouldn’t hunt them
down and beat the shit out of them

– You think that your church is the only true church, and that all other
denominations, regardless of the similarity of their beliefs/doctrines to
your own, are hellbound heretics.

– You believe Christianity is the one true faith, but you refuse to
acknowledge the influence that Greek, Roman, and Persian thought had on the
development of Christianity.

– Thou pepperest thy speech with arcane English because thou thinkest it
makest thee sound more biblical. (Bonus pointeths if thee useth it
wronglyeth)

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
– Romans 13:9

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary — the evil it does is permanent.
