Rachel Maddow, on Rush Limbaugh's assertion that the villain Bane, from Dark Knight Rises, is a Hollywood plot to bring Mittsy down because it sounds like 'Bain' capital:
"Yes, see the villains in Batman were pre-named decades in advance in anticipation of the 2012 presidential election in which one of the candidates would have a contested affiliation with a company named Bain. That's why they named that villain Bane. The conspiracy is deep and it has decades of foresight. Also, Gone with the Wind was an early salvo of the clean energy movement."
Oh Rush, step away from the prescription meds and the deli tray, because now you are being just plain stupid.
And drug addicted.
Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick-Fil-A, when asked about the millions his company has donated to "family ministries:
"Well, guilty as charged. We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. We intend to stay the course. We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."
Funny, I don't remember hate in the Bible.
I must have missed the chapter that Cathy bases all his beliefs upon.
Also known as boycott.
Linda Harvey, hate-filled lonely woman, on Allan Chambers:
"Chambers has said he doesn't believe a person can change his or her so-called sexual orientation. Now, there's not anything like this invented term called 'sexual orientation' in Scripture in the first place, but then he also says that he still struggles himself with sexual feelings for other males. This shows very poor judgment as the leader of this ministry to, first of all, be experiencing this and secondly, to announce it to the whole world. Of course a person can leave homosexuality; there are thousands of people who have done it and God's word clearly states that he can deliver us from sin. And the proud, open sinner who is publicly proclaiming it as good in defiance of God's word? It is highly questionable that such a person is saved. We would not be making this exception for well-adjusted adulterers would we? How about a compassionate pedophile? What about incest like two brothers involved in homosexuality? Why not just defy God's word on this?"
Oh, Linda, you dumbass.
Um, if we are to live our lives believing only in what is written in the Bible, then, well, what do we do about electricity and airplanes, cars? Those things aren't in the Bible and yet here they are; unless you don't believe in cars....?
I think, Linda, you clinking clanking clacking collection of caliginous junk, that 'sexual orientation' wasn't in the Bible because no one knew about it at the time.
Alison Howard, of the Concerned Women, who says she asked Jesus for forgiveness after reading the first two pages of Fifty Shades of Grey:
"Christian women, we need to wake up! This country needs us. It needs our passion, our intensity, our desire to defend ourselves and our families. It needs the $22.50 we spent on Fifty Shades of Grey to be invested in a cause or campaign in which we believe. But women everywhere are politically and spiritually asleep, lulled into a cultural obsession with Christian Grey, an abusive therapist who seduces a college senior. And some men are even buying it on the advice of women as a lesson book for what women like. I recently heard a male bus driver say he wants to get this book on audio! (I’ll bet you do, ya perv!) Is this what we’ve come to: Women — Christian women — flocking to bookstores in droves to buy morally reprehensible tripe?"
I guess the twenty-two bucks she spent on the book didn't get her juices flowing so now she's all pissed off. Still, it begs the question why did she buy the book in the first place? I didn't buy it but I know what it's about. She didn't need to plunk down the dough to find out about the book. I think she was just trying to get her lifeless lady-rocks off.
J.J. Walker, star of the 70's sitcom Good Times, plugging his memoir, 'Dyn-o-mite', on marriage equality:
"Yeah I am. There's just certain traditions that need to be upheld. I'll give you the other side of it, no it doesn't affect me, no it doesn't change my life. There's just traditions that need to be dealt with. I'm a believer that gay marriage should be passed because the battle is not worth the war. The gay lobby is very loud. I'm totally against it. In 100 years from now, people are going to go, 'Who was against gay marriage?' And I'll be one of those idiots and say, 'That's me.' I'm just against it on moral grounds, that's it. I'm as much a heathen as anybody. I just don't believe on moral grounds it should be done. I don't like it, I don't accept it."
Dy-no-mite. Some has-been actor from the seventies has a book to sell and so he spouts a bunch of illiterate garbage in order to make a buck.
Not buying it, JJ. It, or your 'book'.
Murs, aka Nick Carter, on his new video, "Animal Style", which shows the ill-fated relationship of two gay men in the closet:
"Animal Style is a song I did for many reasons. The first was to be an advocate for people close to me who are out, and those who have yet to come out. It's also a love song, which is nothing new for me. But with this one I wanted to challenge the listener to ask themselves: Is the love shared by two people of the same gender, really that different than the love I have for my partner of the opposite sex? And finally, I just felt it was crucial for some of us in the hip hop community to speak up on the issues of teen suicide, bullying, and the overall anti-homosexual sentiment that exist within hip hop culture. I felt so strongly about these issues and this song that I had to do a video that would command some attention, even if it makes some viewers uncomfortable. Even if it came at the cost of my own comfort."
The times are changing.
I never thought I'd see a hip-hop star come out, and I never thought I'd see a hip-hop star take the kind of stance that Murs does.
Jennifer Carroll, Florida Lt. Governor, responding to allegations of an inappropriate lesbian relationship with a female staffer:
"The problem is that when you have these accusations that come out, it's not just one person you're attacking. It's an entire family. My husband doesn't want to hear that. He knows the type of woman I am. I mean, my kids know the type of woman I am. For twenty-nine years - I'm the one that's married for twenty-nine years. The accuser is the one that's been single for a long time. So usually black women that look like me don't engage in relationships like that."
So, married women can't be lesbians?
Oh, honey, you're the typical Florida politician, casting shade at someone else to cover your own peccadilloes.
Charlie Crist sound familiar?
