WEYRICH: Here is the real problem. It has been known for many years that Congressman Foley was a homosexual. Homosexuals tend to be preoccupied with sex. The idea that he should be continued -- or should have been continued as chairman of the Committee on Missing and Exploited Children is, you know, given their knowledge of that, is just outrageous.
NORRIS: Now before we go on, I think I can say, Mr. Weyrich, that there are quite a few people who would take exception to the statement that homosexuals are preoccupied with sex.
WEYRICH: Well, I don't care whether they take exception to it. It happens to be true. I mean --
NORRIS: That is your opinion.
WEYRICH: Well, it's not my opinion. It's the opinion of many psychologists and psychiatrists who have to deal with them. "
The homophobia is pathetic, but the stupidity is astounding :eek: This is the childish level of homophobic argumentation I expect at EvC. I would like to think that retards like this wouldn't survive two minutes under the UK press (obviously excepting the Daily Mail...)
A trichinosis larva and a botfly maggot walk into a bar. The botfly maggot turns to the trichinosis larva and says "hey buddy, I heard you like pork." The trichonosis larva looks the the botfly maggot right in the spiracles and says "indeed, I encyst upon it."
An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar. The first orders a beer. The second orders half a beer. The third orders a quarter of a beer. Before the next one can order, the bartender says, "You're all assholes," and pours two beers.
A neutron walks into a bar. He orders a few drinks and passes the night away. When he's ready to leave he asks the bartender how much he owed, and the bartender said "For you, no charge".
A chemist, a physicist and a biologist are walking along the beach. The physicist stops, looks out at the ocean and says "I just have to understand the motion of the waves better" and walks into the sea and never returns. The biologist looks out to the sea and says "I just have to understand the sea creatures better" and walks out into the ocean and never returns. The chemist pulls out a notebook and writes "Physicist and biologist both soluble."
I was bored today and looking through youtube and ran across this absolutely hillarious video that I think every Christian should watch. It shows the ridiculousness of this religion. I was ROTFL through the entire thing. Hope you get a chuckle:
Re: "An Atheist Meets God" and "God's Cool Designs"
In re your first link, about a year ago I stumbled upon an atheist site that had a short story. Sorry I don't have a link nor remember a name, though I seem to recall it to be a European site (but don't hold me to that).
In that story, a Christian missionary stumbles upon a village of atheists who had never ever before heard of God or of religion or of Christianity. And they were all eager to hear what this missionary had to say. Listening to every word he said, they had to stop and ask him questions when something didn't make any sense. Which turned out to quite often, because so much of the missionary's message (all of it just standard Christian proselytizing) was counter-intuitive, contrary to fact, and self-contradictory. Finally, the missionary had to flee the village out of frustration, despite the villagers' sincere wish to hear and understand his message.
Maybe not a story you could share with the mess, but a good one for Christian proselytizers to disabuse them of the delusion that we're just obstinately resisting them; no, their message quite honestly makes no sense to us.

Shrewd Investment A woman walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer. She says she's going to Europe on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000. The bank officer tells her that the bank will need some kind of security for such a loan, so the woman hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce that's parked on the street in front of the bank. Everything checks out, and the bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. An employee drives the Rolls Royce into the bank's underground garage and parks it there.
Two weeks later, the woman returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest, which comes to $15.41. The loan officer approaches her and says:
"We are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we're a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked out your accounts and found that you were a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"
"Well, where else in Manhattan can I park my car for two weeks for fifteen bucks?"

I was watching a webpod of The Atheist Experience when the host, Matt Dillahunty mentioned a video of Tim Minchin reciting his poem "Storm". It's a send up of anti-science people and imho it's very good. The video appears to have disappeared but I do have a link to the lyrics, enjoy! :D
According to presidential historian Davis Logsdon of the University of Minnesota, some Americans might find it "alienating" to have a President who speaks English as if it were his first language.
"Every time Obama opens his mouth, his subjects and verbs are in agreement," says Mr. Logsdon. "If he keeps it up, he is running the risk of sounding like an elitist."
The historian said that if Mr. Obama insists on using complete sentences in his speeches, the public may find itself saying, "Okay, subject, predicate, subject predicate - we get it, stop showing off."
The President-elect's stubborn insistence on using complete sentences has already attracted a rebuke from one of his harshest critics, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska.
"Talking with complete sentences there and also too talking in a way that ordinary Americans like Joe the Plumber and Tito the Builder can't really do there, I think needing to do that isn't tapping into what Americans are needing also," she said.
Reminds of the narrator from Idiocracy: "Unaware of what year it was, Joe wandered the streets desperate for help. But the English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them"
