Pretend meeting mocked for pretend calls to pretend entity by pretend journalists

Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, invoked the ancient jaguar goddessIxchel in her opening statement to delegates gathered in Cancun, Mexico, noting that Ixchel was not only goddess of the moon, but also “the goddess of reason, creativity and weaving. May she inspire you — because today, you are gathered in Cancun to weave together the elements of a solid response to climate change, using both reason and creativity as your tools.”

So of course, the wrong-wing media picked up on this.  They find it silly to call upon the help of a fictional deity whose existence cannot be demonstrated.  It is a bit silly, to be honest.

So whatcha doin’ Sunday morning?

Specials needs intern being vilified and bullied for standing up against abuse of children

As if the original weren’t sickening enough…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The most horrible part is that, according to the bible, these people are dead on. That’s one of the ever-growing list of reasons why I don’t believe in the bible.

The truth shall set you free

"Brother, it is a human being you are beating."

Wow. Islam is really fucked up. This video advises young men on how to properly beat their wives. They try to soften the message by saying not to beat a woman in the face or to not beat them as you would a child or an animal. What that really tells me is that beating your wife is completely acceptable to these guys, but they don’t want to come off as the monsters they are. Which indicates that there are plenty of Muslim men who just beat the living crap out of their wives because their religion tells them it’s okay (and it does).

A long time ago, I used to be one of those postmodern, relativistic types. I was all about tolerating other cultures and was too quick to dismiss the excesses of Christians and Jews and Hindus and Mormons and all the other cults. Then I started to learn about Islam and Muslim culture. That put the brakes on my attitude real fast. Some cultures are better than others. Period. And Islam is possibly the worst of the lot. Its attitude toward women is absolutely barbaric. Anybody who tells you Islam is a religion of peace is completely full of shit.
