Pure, Unadulterated Wacko-ism

Sometimes, you just have to let the wackos speak for themselves. Be sure to scroll down to read the opinion that Apple Computers= Satanism. I mean, where do you start? Argument from authority is an ugly, ugly thing sometimes. My grandmother would say the most outrageous stuff without even considering what it meant just because her preacher said it was so, and he was always right.

Ellen says Arkansas scares her because there are lots of towns with 60 people and 10 churches (REALLY!). Sometimes I think she's right.

The site is probably slashdotted still. Here's the google mirror.

UPDATE: Get a look at their member list. Nothing like some good ol' white power to start your day.

The sad thing is that these people will sincerely think they are doing good. It's only when you really, really work at them that you'll peel away the layers of decency and find out that they also sincerely believe things like:

  • we'll ultimately, someday have to solve this jewish problem.
  • folks with black skin got that way because that's really the mark of cain.
  • if we could only get the government to follow the laws of the bible exactly we'd all be so much better off. (substitute "bible" with "koran" and you'll see how fanatics can arrive at the same point from different directions).

And no, folks, this isn't a "Christian" country. It never was.

Hi Scott and Ellen. I have a niece who has very strong opinions, sometimes the facts are in severe opposition to her opinion.
Solution : ignore the facts if they contradict her opinion. But that's OK, because it is so utterly Human, however, to forgive others, and grant them the right to their own opinion is also Human and Good and guaranteed by The Constitution. The free market place of ideas is what makes America Great.

True. I just wish folks would engage in a bit more critical thinking instead of just blindly following authority.

Of course, as every male knows, females (especially Italian-wife-type-females) are by definition correct in all things. ;)
