Willie Nelson Calls on Joe Biden to Dub 4/20 a National High Holiday

On 4/20, the unofficial holiday for marijuana lovers, Willie Nelson, the patron saint of cannabis, urged president Joe Biden to declare April 20 a high holy holiday.

Granted, Willie was probably high when he made that pronouncement, but then again, he’s high most of the time.

Willie has been promoting the benefits of the magical herb for decades, and America is finally coming around to his point of view. Polls show that most Americans favor legalizing weed, and recreational use of marijuana is now legal in 17 states.

I hope Biden, 78, takes the advice of his elder who’s 87, and comes out in favor of legalizing dope. On the federal level marijuana remains illegal, it’s high time for Congress to legalize the recreational use of pot.

Let’s heed the prophetic words of the Pontiff of Pot:

I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?”

Amen! Amen!

Evangelicals Love Them Some Girl-on-Girl Porn

A research published by the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion found that states with a higher percentage of evangelical Protestants or biblical literalists tended to have a higher proportion of Google searches for “porn.”

This should come as no surprise to anyone with even a nodding acquaintance with evangelicals, hypocrisy is an essential component of evangelicalism. The lure of our sex-saturated culture is impossible for evangelicals to resist, they loudly decry sexual sins while they indulge in adultery, pornography and every other sexual discretion in secret.

Evangelicals are the biggest consumers of online pornography; they are more familiar with PornHub.Com and YouPorn.Com than they are with the most popular evangelical websites. They are more likely to exclaim “Jesus” after climaxing to a porn video than they are to shout out the name of the Lord in response to a sermon from their pastor.

Girl-on-girl porn is by far the most popular genre of pornography with male and female consumers, and no doubt evangelicals who never miss an opportunity to demonize gays and lesbians love them some girl-on-girl action.

So when evangelicals warn you that adultery, same-sex sex and pornography are horrible sins, just ask them which they prefer PornHub.Com or YouPorn.Com and watch them slither away in shame and humiliation.

In Hannity Interview Trump Urges Americans to Get Vaccinated

Former President Donald Trump, who botched the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, urged Americans to get vaccinated against the virus in a Monday night interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

Trump told Hannity that he encouraged Republicans to be vaccinated and wasn’t sure why his followers were hesitant to take the shot.

Why is there vaccine hesitancy in Trump world?

Maybe it’s because when Trump was president, he downplayed the pandemic, dismissing is as nothing more than “the flu.”

Maybe it’s because he received his vaccine in secret, if he really wanted to inspire his base to be vaccinated, he would have filmed himself taking the shot.

Maybe it’s because he hasn’t filmed a public service commercial urging his devotees to be vaccinated.

Maybe it’s because he disparaged the physicians and scientists in his coronavirus task force, and instead led his science-denying evangelical supporters to believe that the pandemic would disappear miraculously.

Maybe it’s because he didn’t plead with evangelical leaders to urge their disciples to do the right thing, the Christian thing, and get vaccinated.

It’s not too late for Trump to do the right thing, if he begged his admirers to get vaccinated as a demonstration of faith in him, they would get in line to be injected with the vaccine.

The MyPillow Guy, Mike Lindell, Pranked Into Thinking Trump Was Calling Him

The MyPillow guy, Mike Lindell, is one of the most vociferous supporters of Donald Trump, almost half a year after the election he’s still promulgating the Big Lie that the election was stolen from his orange messiah.

After Lindell was banned from Twitter for spreading conspiracy theories about last year’s elections, he’s been trying to get his Twitter clone “Frank” off the ground.

On Monday he was duped by a prank caller pretending to be former President Trump while taking live calls during a telethon to raise money for his new social media site.

While Lindell was taking calls on his cell phone (who conducts a telethon on a cellphone?), the host of the event said she was speaking with the former president and said she would put him on the line.

When Lindell started speaking to who he thought was Trump, he looked as gleeful as a schoolgirl who’s just been invited backstage by a lecherous rock star. He exclaimed: “We have the president here, our real president everyone.”

The real president, Joe Biden, wasn’t on the line, and the former president, Donald Trump, wasn’t calling in to his rinky-dink telethon. The prankster, who was pretending to be Trump, cursed out the pillow entrepreneur.

As soon as Lindell realized it was a prank, he pulled his phone away and tried to take it off speakerphone and end the call. No doubt, Lindell was as disappointed as a horny idiot who climaxed after having phone sex with a phone sex operator only to discover that the operator was a man pretending to be a woman.

“You see what they’re doing. They’re attacking us”, he cried out in frustration. The “they” wasn’t an organized opposition to the shenanigans of a con artist pillow salesman; it was a prankster who humiliated him.

Lindell should stick to what he does best, selling pillows, and stop spreading conspiracy theories or trying to create a social media platform.

The Streets Will Be on Fire if Derek Chauvin Isn’t Convicted for the Murder of George Floyd

America is bracing for a verdict in former Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s trial over the execution of George Floyd.

Closing arguments in Chauvin’s trial will take place Monday, after which the jury will begin its deliberations. Chauvin, was a Minneapolis police officer when he was filmed nonchalantly kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds. With his sunglasses jauntily perched on his head, and his hand in his pocket while he slowly and deliberately snuffed the life out of Floyd, he is the poster boy for the police genocide of people of color.

The Floyd execution video is the most infamous snuff film in history, and if Chauvin is found guilty of the most serious charge that he faces, second-degree unintentional murder, media outlets should never again play that sickening video.

The graphic video, played endlessly on cable news outlets, opened the eyes of many white Americans to the reality of the violence and brutality that people of color face every day at the hands of the police. A traffic stop for a white person is a minor annoyance in the great scheme of things, but for a black man it’s a terrifying ordeal that all too often leads to an arrest at the least, and injury or death at the worst.

The trial of Chauvin for the murder of Floyd should be a slam dunk, and I don’t see why the jury would need more than a few minutes to find the killer cop guilty of murdering Floyd.

If Chauvin is found not guilty or if the trial ends in a hung jury, it will be undeniable proof that the judicial system is stacked against minorities, and I wouldn’t be surprised if riots erupt all over this racist country. I can only hope that the violence isn’t indiscriminate and that an outraged citizenry will focus their wrath on the homes of racist Republican politicians and the white evangelical churches that supported the racist agenda of Donald Trump.

I am not advocating violence; I’m just being a realist by declaring that America will burn if a miscarriage of justice takes place and the killer cop isn’t convicted.

Pat Robertson Lashes Out at Killer Cops: Kim Potter and Derek Chauvin

“Ultra-conservative evangelical leader Pat Robertson delivered a surprisingly searing rant about the recent onslaught of police violence, blasting former officers Kim Potter and Derek Chauvin while saying cops have ‘got to stop this stuff.’

During his 700 Club broadcast on Thursday, Robertson and co-host Terry Meeuwsen discussed the shooting death of Daunte Wright, noting that Potter—who has been charged with manslaughter—has claimed that she confused her pistol and Taser when she shot and killed Wright during a traffic stop.

Using plastic models of the two weapons, Robertson and Meeuwsen demonstrated the difference in size and weight between the sidearm and Taser, prompting Robertson to say there’s ‘no comparison’ between the two.”

Yahoo News

Evangelical firebrand Pat Robertson and I agree as often as Ivanka Trump and a Trump Tower housekeeper enjoy sushi and sake at the Kurumazushi restaurant in New York City.

But I’m glad that Robertson experienced an epiphany and delivered a Holy Ghost inspired prophetic message about the systemic police violence against people of color. He blasted former police officers Kim Potter and Derek Chauvin with both barrels — for once fulfilling his responsibility as a man of God and speaking truth to power.

Robertson’s audience gets almost all of their news from conservative outlets like Fox News and Newsmax where cops are venerated as public servants, who can do no wrong. Therefore, I applaud Robertson for opening the eyes of his followers to the reality where for decades, indeed centuries, police officers have been culling blacks and other minorities.

If you believe that 26-year veteran police officer Kim Potter mistook a Glock for a Taser, I have a seaside property in Kentucky to sell you. Kim Potter murdered Daunte Wright in cold blood, unfortunately intent is very difficult to prove and consequently she was charged with second-degree manslaughter instead of first-degree murder.

If Chauvin and Potter are convicted, I will join Robertson in shouting: Halleluiah.

Johnny Enlow Says People Will Understand Trump’s Bravery When They Get to Heaven

“Pastor Johnny Enlow, a conservative Christian who has been described by some as a ‘prophetic leader,’ said that people will understand and ‘respect’ former President Donald Trump more once they get to Heaven.

Enlow and his wife Elizabeth Enlow are the founders of Restore 7 ministry based in Tennessee. Johnny Enlow appeared on a recent episode of The Elijah List program, discussing Trump and how people view the former president. Right Wing Watch first reported the pastor’s remarks.

‘The weaker, more imperfect that a vessel is—the more glory God gets from using him to accomplish what he wanted to accomplish. Having said that, we are going to respect and honor President Trump a whole lot more in Heaven once we understood the courage and bravery of what he’s had to do and put up with,’ Enlow said.”

Newsweek

The Good Book says, “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” God works in mysterious ways and when we get to heaven what our now mysteries will become self-evident truths.

When I die, whether I ascend to heaven, descend to hell, am reincarnated as a snail or simply cease to exist, I won’t lose my sanity and morality and gain newfound respect for the twice-impeached former president.

For a religious leader to assign the virtues of courage and bravery to the most corrupt and manifestly evil president in history is blasphemy and spiritual malpractice.

If by some cosmic misfortune I ended up in Enlow’s version of heaven, and Jehovah waxed eloquently about the courage and bravery of Donald Trump, I would tell Him to shut the hell up and let me try my chances with Satan.

Enlow is not an aberration, he is representative of how evangelicals think and believe, most white evangelical leaders have repeatedly praised the former president, and about 85 percent of white evangelicals voted to reelect Trump.

Donald Trump is a racist and cowardly clown, and when I die regardless in what plane of existence I find myself in, contrary to Enlow’s vain babblings, my opinion of the former president will not change.

Trump Without Twitter is Like a Neutered & Debarked Bitch Who’s Undergone a Full Mouth Extraction

If a tree falls in the forest does it make a sound?

Sound doesn’t exist without our hearing it, so if there’s not just bears shitting in the woods, but also a lone hiker, then as long as that solitary individual isn’t deaf it does make a sound.

If a bloviating politician rants and raves is he heard by his fanatical base if he’s been silenced on social media platforms?

The Trump-inspired ransacking of the Capital turned the Big Tech behemoths that had facilitated his rise to power against him.

Trump had been addicted to Twitter for over a decade before becoming president, and once he assumed the ultimate power, he used his favorite social media platform to ridicule his Democratic opponents and to keep his Republican rivals in line.

Twitter amplified Trump’s voice and it solidified his grip on power, when he was permanently banned from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram he was rendered as useless as a Pit bull who’s been neutered, debarked and had all of his teeth removed.

The disgraced twice-impeached former president now communicates mainly through press releases, but that’s manifestly not the best way to reach his ignorant and illiterate base.

A press release is a foreign concept to the MAGA denizens of a trailer park, and it just doesn’t resonate like an angry and profane tweet.

Google searches for “Trump” have plummeted since he was banned from Twitter, we’ve rediscovered the joys of searching for cats, UFO’s and naked celebrities.

Trump the Lion of Twitter is now the whining pussycat of Mar-a-Lago.

Rant and rave all you want to you pathetic loser, nobody is listening.

Senate Republicans Reward Trump for His Profane Mar-a-Lago Speech by Giving Him an Award

“This weekend, NRSC Chairman Rick Scott presented President Donald J. Trump with the NRSC’s inaugural Champion for Freedom Award.

This award is presented to conservative leaders who have worked tirelessly to create good jobs, protect the values that make our country great, and stop the Democrats’ socialist agenda.”

National Republican Senatorial Committee Press Release

On Saturday night at Mar-a-Lago in a speech to Republican donors a flood of diarrhea emanated from Donald Trump’s sphincter-shaped mouth. He doubled down on the Big Lie that the election was stolen from him and he attacked Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as a “dumb son of a bitch.”

Today the NRSC rewarded Trump for his undemocratic, anti-Republican and profane tirade by presenting him with the inaugural “Champion for Freedom Award.”

Trump seemed to realize that this award is a sham because he didn’t bother to put on a sports coat, he was photographed receiving the award in his signature MAGA hat and short sleeve shirt.

Obviously, Trump doesn’t deserve this award: he worked tirelessly to grift his own supporters, he attacked the values that make this country great, and the Democrats don’t have a socialist agenda.

The GOP senators rewarded Trump after his execrable speech, proving that their party is rotten to the core. The Republican Party is terminally infected with Trumpism, and if our democracy is to survive the electorate must strengthen President Joe Biden’s hand by increasing the Democrats’ majority in the House and Senate in the mid-term elections.

Brazil Building New Giant Jesus Statue, Taller Than Iconic Christ the Redeemer Statue

“A giant new statue of Christ being constructed in southern Brazil will rise even higher than the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue that overlooks Rio de Janeiro.

The statue, to be named Christ the Protector, will stand 140 feet tall, including its pedestal, making it one of the world’s tallest statues of Christ with outstretched arms.”

France24.Com

Brazil has the world’s largest Catholic population, but the huge country with the largest economy in Latin America is mired in violence and poverty. According to the World Health Organization Brazil has one of the highest rates of homicide in the world.

History teaches us that the most religious countries tend to have the greatest systemic and intractable problems of racism, poverty and ignorance.

You’d think that cities in Brazil wouldn’t be competing to see who can erect the tallest statue of Jesus, and instead would focus on tackling issues of crime, poverty and wealth inequality.

Promoters say that the giant statue of Jesus is intended both to inspire faith and encourage tourism, which begs the questions: How empty and superficial is your faith if it takes a giant idol to stimulate your religious devotion?

Religious tomfoolery isn’t unique to Brazil, it thrives in America as well. The late Oral Roberts sought to inspire his donors to give millions towards building the tallest hospital in Tulsa by telling them that he had a vision of a 900-foot-tall Jesus.

And of course, there’s the Ark Encounter theme park in dirt poor Kentucky that features a humongous replica of Noah’s Ark.

Dear God, when will humanity evolve beyond the need for giant idols?

Understandably, Joe Biden is in a Hurry to Enact His Agenda

Joe, Biden, 78, has lost a step or two physically and mentally, but it’s certainly not apparent by his breakneck pace in issuing executive orders, overseeing mammoth legislative victories and his tireless assault on the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden was dismissed as “Sleepy Joe” by Donald Trump, but the commander-in-chief has been a whirling dervish, not wasting any time in Trumpian “executive-time” tomfoolery or social media shenanigans.

Biden is just getting started, his $2 trillion (in reality more than $4 trillion) infrastructure proposal is the latest item on his agenda that he’s going to bring to fruition come hell, high water, or reconciliation.

Why is Biden in such a damn hurry?

Most of Biden’s supporters are in denial, and they refuse to accept the reality that the president’s mental acuity is in decline, but he has enough active brain cells left to know that he will be lucky if he survives his first term. That’s why he’s on a mission from God to get us much done as quickly as possible.

Thank goodness, that waiting in the wings is a young and vibrant vice president who is ready to take control, whether it’s in four days, four months or four years.

Biden also knows that recent political history indicates that Democrats will most likely lose control of the House in the midterm elections, and they will be lucky if they retain control of the Senate.

You go Joe, you have our blessing to burn yourself out in service to our country.

Beth Moore Cuts Ties With Southern Baptist Denomination, She Must Cut Ties With All White Evangelicals

“When the gospel has become bad news to the poor, to the oppressed, to the broken-hearted and imprisoned and good news to the proud, self-righteous and privileged instead, it is no longer the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Beth Moore

“I am still a Baptist, but I can no longer identify with Southern Baptists.”

Beth Moore

For three decades Beth Moore was one of the leading lecturers and teachers in the Southern Baptist denomination, but after five years of her denomination supporting the racist, misogynist and blatantly unchristian rhetoric and policies of Donald Trump she finally cut her ties with them.

But she still considers herself a Baptist and an evangelical, the dichotomy is dizzying. To remain true to Christianity she must denounce the white evangelical movement, it’s rotten to the core and antithetical to the teachings of the Gospels.

After four years of Trump fuckery and after the Trump-inspired insurrection, an astonishing 85% of white evangelicals still support their orange messiah.

White supremacism, patriarchy and racism aren’t unfortunate fringe aspects of the white evangelical movement, they are central to the demonic system.

A true Christian will denounce evangelicals, and fight their evil doctrines tooth and nail. Beth Moore is moving in the right direction, but to truly do the work of God she must condemn white evangelicals in no uncertain terms.

Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Office: Bottle of Coke and Tiny Trump Statue

Donald Trump’s former senior adviser Stephen Miller gave his Twitter followers a peek inside the ex-president’s Mar-a-Lago office, when he uploaded a photo on Monday.

The image depicts Miller standing next to Trump in his Florida office and he captioned the photo: “just had a terrific meeting with President Trump!”

It’s instructive to note that in his post presidency Trump surrounds himself with white nationalists like the infamous anti-immigrant Miller. I doubt that Trump has invited Franklin Graham or any of the other Trump evangelical fluffers to Mar-a-Lago, with the possible exception of Paula White. The short-fingered vulgarian can put up with her penchant for speaking in tongues and other evangelical tomfoolery because she’s almost as hot as one of his porn star mistresses.

A bottle of Coke can be clearly seen within reach of Trump’s tiny hands, noteworthy because just a few day ago he called for a boycott of Major League Baseball, Delta Airlines and Coke — entities that have protested the new restrictive voting rights in Georgia.

Miller’s pic also captures a small replica statue of Donald Trump, only a narcissist would keep a statue of himself in his office.

This pic shows us that Trump hasn’t changed an iota since the electorate kicked his fat ass to the curb, he’s still a racist and a narcissist who gulps sodas and lives by the credo: Do as I say, not as I do.

The Church is Dying and That’s a Good Thing for Democracy and Humanity

“Fewer than half of Americans belong to a house of worship, a new study shows, but religion – and Christianity in particular – continues to have an outsize influence in US politics, especially because it is declining faster among Democrats than Republicans.

Just 47% of the US population are members of a church, mosque or synagogue, according to a survey by Gallup, down from 70% two decades ago – in part a result of millennials turning away from religion but also, experts say, a reaction to the swirling mix of rightwing politics and Christianity pursued by the Republican party.”

The Guardian

Jerry Falwell’s “Moral Majority” was an immoral minority in the 1980’s and the toxic racist Gospel of white evangelicals is even less relevant today.

Americans are turning away from organized religion in general and the evangelical sect in particular; religion is irrelevant in an age when science, technology and globalism reign supreme.

The white evangelical brand of Christianity is synonymous with racism, false conspiracy theories and Trumpism and young people in particular want nothing to do with it.

Enlightened souls place empirical truth, common sense and reality before conspiracy theories and extreme and literal interpretations of ancient scriptures.

Banning abortion, disenfranchising minorities, and treating LGBTQ individuals as lepers may be foremost in the minds of white evangelicals, but everybody else is concerned with paying the rent, putting food on the table and defeating the coronavirus.  

Empty pews aren’t a sign of godlessness or the End Times, it’s a sign that Americans have evolved past the need for hierarchical and patriarchal religious organizations.

We don’t need a pedophile priest or a money-hungry televangelist to be a mediator between us and the Almighty.

The pandemic has taught us that we can survive and thrive without clerics and churches. The bonds that we have with our family, co-workers, friends and neighbors is tighter than any bond we used to have with our ministers. The church is dying and that’s good for democracy and humanity.

Coach Adia Barnes Refuses to Apologize After Flipping the Bird in March Madness! You Go Girl!

Adia Barnes, the Arizona women’s basketball coach was caught by television cameras delivering a fiery message in a team huddle after a stunning upset win against Connecticut in the Final Four of the women’s basketball NCAA Tournament.

While talking to her players, Barnes drops an f-bomb and triumphantly waves her middle finger in the air, like she just doesn’t care. It was her graphic way of illustrating to her players that the haters and naysayers can “fuck themselves.”

College coaches are notorious for their salty language and male coaches liberally sprinkle their pep talks with f-bombs. Nobody would have batted an eye or protested in mock outrage if a male coach had flipped the bird or uttered an obscenity in an emotionally-charged speech after a stunning upset victory.

But I guess a female coach is supposed to channel the school chaplain when congratulating her team after a thrilling victory.

To her credit coach Barnes has adamantly refused to apologize:

“I’m not apologizing for it because I don’t feel that I need to apologize… I wouldn’t take it back.”

Anyone who thinks coach Barnes should apologize, can go fuck themselves.

A Donald Trump Painting Is Coming to the National Portrait Gallery

“A portrait of former President Trump will be unveiled in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. when it reopens, Washingtonian reports.

Trump’s portrait will be the latest addition to the museum’s ‘America’s Presidents’ gallery, a permanent exhibit within the museum.”

The Hill

The permanent exhibit has a painting of every former commander-in-chief, so the inclusion of the portrait of the twice-impeached disgraced former president was a formality.

The portrait is temporary, official presidential portraits can take years to be completed. The final work of art is still in its initial phase of creation; the curator of the museum should have installed a Jim Carrey caricature of the president until the final portrait is ready.

I’m not an artist, I can barely draw stick figures, but I think I can paint a reasonable facsimile of Trump: bright orange crayon for his countenance, brown for his sphincter-shaped lips, red, and white, and blue to lend his triple chin a patriotic look.  

When the official Trump portrait is unveiled, I expect a steady stream of MAGA faithful making a pilgrimage to the National Portrait Gallery. Doubtless, all sorts of miracles will be attributed to the Trump portrait:

“When I gazed upon his face my manhood grew about four inches and now all the Republican ladies always invite me to their prayer meetings.”

“His portrait was shedding tears, and when I touched an orange teardrop I was instantly and miraculously cured of gout and incontinence.”

“It winked at me, my God it winked at me. That’s a message from the Almighty that I must visit Mar-a-Lago and let Trump grab the bejesus out of my pussy.”

I for one will not be waiting with bated breath for the unveiling of the official Trump portrait.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Blasts COVID-19 Vaccine Passports: ‘Biden’s Mark of the Beast’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is a QAnon believer and an evangelical Christian, both are pathologies that should render her unqualified to serve in Congress.

On Monday the most infamous conspiracy theorist in Congress called vaccine passports “Biden’s Mark of the Beast” during a Facebook livestream.

“Is this something like Biden’s Mark of the Beast because that is really disturbing and not good,” the Georgia representative said.

Rational people aren’t familiar with evangelical end times eschatology, and they don’t realize that evangelicals are terrifying of being forced by the government to receive the mark of the beast. The mark symbolizes allegiance with the beast and the Antichrist and opposition to the God of the Bible.

You and I may laugh off Green’s ignorance, but evangelicals are terrified that the godless liberal Biden will force them to receive Satan’s mark if they are vaccinated.

The so-called vaccine passport will allow you to do things like travel or go to concerts and sporting events, it doesn’t mean that you are in league with the Antichrist.

Boys and girls, please don’t listen to religious kooks like Greene, listen to the scientists and physicians, and for the love of God get vaccinated against COVID-19.

There is Zero Chance in Hell Joe Biden, 78, Will Run for Reelection

During President Joe Biden’s first press conference Nancy Cordes of CBS News asked him: “Have you decided whether you are going to run for reelection in 2024?” “The answer is yes,”, he responded. “My plan is to run for reelection. That’s my expectation.”

You don’t have to be an insurance agent with actuarial tables at the ready to be cognizant that the odds aren’t very promising that a 78-year-old frail looking man in the most stressful job in the world will survive a four-year term.

The expectation of political analysts, insurance agents and bloggers is that there’s no way in hell Biden will run for reelection in 2024, if he’s still alive.

When you’re a septuagenarian on the cusp of becoming an octogenarian, it takes a lot of optimism to fill out a monthly planner, let alone make career plans for four years into the future. For Biden taking things one day at a time isn’t a platitude, it’s his strategy for surviving his golden years.

Biden could have deflected the question by saying: I’m too busy trying to rescue the economy and defeating the coronavirus pandemic to worry about my future plans. Ask me again in a couple of years.

Or he could have told the truth and admitted that at 78-years-old he’s already exceeded his expiration date, and that in 2024 he won’t have the energy to get up in the morning, let alone assume the burden of the presidency. But if he declared that he wasn’t running for reelection he would immediately become a lame duck, and all attention would shift to vice president Kamala Harris.

So, Biden told a transparent lie, to no pushback from the assembled reporters. Of course, we couldn’t expect the press to tell the president: Joe, you aren’t fooling anybody, we all have you as our top pick in our death pool.

But I’m not worried about Biden’s tenuous hold on life, a frail good-hearted competent politician is exponentially better than a raging out-of-control fascist racist. Not to mention, that standing in the wings, is Kamala Harris, the future of the Democratic Party.

White Evangelicals’ Panties in a Twist Over Lil Nas X’s ‘Satan Shoes’

Lil Nas X is black, openly gay and a rapper, the unholy Trinity of evil as far as white evangelicals are concerned.

The controversial rapper just dropped a new music video, “Montero (Call Me by Your Name),” depicting him giving Satan a lap dance. The rapper is then pictured snapping the devil’s neck, before removing his horned crown and assuming it himself.

As publicity for new his video the shrewd entrepreneur is selling a limited-edition pair of “Satan Shoes” featuring a bronze pentagram, an inverted cross and a drop of real human blood.

Nas X isn’t breaking any new ground, heavy metal bands and mainstream pop stars have been employing Illuminati and Satanic imagery to sell records for decades.

White evangelicals have their panties in a twist over Lil Nas X’s mad wicked promotional skills, they allege that he is making a mockery of their faith. Evangelical pastor Mark Burns called the unique footwear “evil” and “heresy”, and South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem tweeted that the sneakers were a symbol of America’s spiritual ruin.

Bitches please, by supporting a racist, xenophobic, homophobic, misogynist, cruel tyrant like Donald Trump evangelicals are the ones who are making a mockery of Christianity.

If Jesus Christ walked the Earth today, He would stroll down the Old Town Road with Lil Nas X and shun the white evangelical hypocrites who support racism and kinds of evil in His name.

White Evangelicals Least Likely Group to Get COVID-19 Vaccine

Vaccine hesitancy is epidemic in white evangelical circles, according to a recent survey only 54 percent of white evangelicals “definitely or probably” plan to get vaccinated.

This in due in large part because the unofficial pope of white evangelicals, Donald Trump, eschews mitigation efforts against COVID including social distancing, wearing masks and getting vaccinated. If Trump enthusiastically urged his followers to get vaccinated, they would line up to be vaccinated and they would consider the bandage covering the injection site an emblem of their faith in Jesus and his orange messiah, Donald Trump.

White evangelicals don’t get the vaccine because Trump doesn’t emphasize the importance of the vaccine, and Trump doesn’t emphasize the importance of the vaccine because he doesn’t want to lose the support of evangelicals, many of whom were anti-vaxxers long before the coronavirus pandemic. What a vicious circle of ignorance and moral cowardice.

There’s a long history of anti-science within American evangelicalism, their mantra is “Jesus is my vaccine”, not I trust in science to defeat the pandemic. It’s a badge of honor and a demonstration of their faith for evangelicals to refuse to be vaccinated.

According to a Pew research study only 48 percent of white evangelicals said they would consider the community health effects a lot when deciding to be vaccinated. In other words, evangelicals only care about their own tribe, and they are unconcerned and unfazed if their anti-vaccine stance results in a coronavirus breakout in their city.

Unfortunately, Trump didn’t get vaccinated in the glare of the cameras, and there’s no verse in the Bible that states, “You must be vaccinated”, therefore I have little faith white evangelicals will have an epiphany and get vaccinated for their own good and for the good of society.

Franklin Graham Infuriates Evangelicals After Telling Them to Get Vaccinated

Over the last four years evangelical leader Franklin Graham has worked tirelessly to paint a religious veneer on Donald Trump’s racist policies, harsh rhetoric and myriad crimes against democracy and the God that he worships.

Graham isn’t rewarded financially by Trump for his thankless job as a fluffer, but propping up of the racist, corrupt and incompetent short-fingered vulgarian inspires his flock to donate to his ministries. It’s all about the Benjamins and Graham will debase himself to keep himself living in the lap of luxury.

Graham has amplified Trump’s COVID misinformation and conspiracy theories. He’s lambasted Dr. Anthony Fauci for having the temerity to suggest that we should follow the science instead of relying on the counsel of anti-science buffoons like himself who said “COVID exists only because Man has turned his back on God.”

Graham finally said something about the pandemic that makes sense, or at last as much sense as you can expect from a white evangelical minister:

“I have been asked my opinion about the vaccine by the media and others. I have even been asked if Jesus were physically walking on earth now, would He be an advocate for vaccines. My answer was that based on the parable of the Good Samaritan in the Bible, I would have to say — yes, I think Jesus Christ would advocate for people using vaccines and medicines to treat suffering and save lives…

… Vaccines have worked for polio, smallpox, measles, the flu and so many other deadly illnesses — why not for this virus? Since there are different vaccines available, my recommendation is that people do their research, talk to their doctor, and pray about it to determine which vaccine, if any, is right for them. My wife and I have both had the vaccine; and at 68 years old, I want to get as many more miles out of these old bones as possible!”

Graham’s statement is problematic, we aren’t given a choice of which of the three vaccines currently available we prefer and his implication that vaccines may not be right for some people is unscientific hogwash. But I give him credit for urging his followers to be vaccinated, especially considering that vaccine hesitancy is epidemic in the evangelical world.

Graham was crucified for urging his flock to be vaccinated, he was called everything but a child of God by outraged evangelicals. True believers who have the mindset of “Jesus is my vaccine” tore Graham a new asshole for his heretical statement.

I don’t have faith that evangelicals will ever see the light of reason, science and common sense.

If Jesus Christ, the Great Physician walked on the Earth today, he would advocate for people to listen to scientists and physicians like Dr. Fauci, and to disregard the advice of con artists like Graham.

Joe Biden Stumbles Once, Twice, Thrice on Steps of Air Force One. Should We be Worried?

When a child falls, he quickly dusts himself off and resumes whatever mischief led to his mishap. But when a septuagenarian, soon to be an octogenarian, falls everyone holds their breath, hoping and praying he hasn’t cracked his skull or broken his back.

President Joe Biden, while boarding Air Force One, lost his footing and fell three times in rapid succession. Biden desperately grabbed the railing, dropped to his knee, and willed himself to stand up again.

Biden experienced his senior moment walking up the ramp, imagine if he had tripped descending the stairs, forward momentum might have propelled him all the way down and all the president’s physicians and all the spin doctors wouldn’t have been able to put him together again.

White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the president was doing fine following the incident.

I give Biden style points for quickly composing himself and snapping off a salute before entering Air Force One.

But this accident reminds us that Biden is 78-freaking-years-old, and that his expiration date might be sooner than 2024.

Maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea to install a chair-lift to the boarding ramp on Air Force One.

Thoughts and Prayers Are as Effective as Passing Wind in Stopping Gun Violence

Whenever a natural or a man-made disaster strikes thoughts and prayers are offered in the hopes that the Almighty might intervene and stop the endless cycle of death and destruction.

But “acts of God “such as hurricanes and wildfires have increased in frequency and intensity due to man-made climate change, and mass shootings have increased in frequency and lethality due to our inability to pass common sense gun laws and the criminal neglect of people suffering from mental illness.

Atheists, believers and anyone with two brains cells to rub together should come to the inescapable conclusion that passing wind to put out a wildfire is as effective as praying to stop a mass shooting.

Prayers dissipate before they reach heaven and they are of little comfort to victims grieving over the death of loved ones. Windbag politicians and sanctimonious preachers should stop insulting our intelligence by reflectively offering their thoughts and prayers in the aftermath of a tragedy.

Let’s not waste our breath uttering useless thoughts and prayers and instead expend our energy and resources in tackling the intractable problems of climate change and gun violence.

Evangelical Ministers and Their Pricey Designer Sneakers

“Ben Kirby, a self-described Evangelical from Dallas, revealed himself as the man behind the @PreachersNSneakers account on Monday.

Since opening his account in 2019, Kirby has amassed more than 210,000 followers by posting images of pastors next to exorbitant price tags for the items they’re wearing – most commonly, their sneakers.”

Daily Mail

Once upon a time sneakers were utilitarian footwear, and you didn’t give a second thought to the smelly old gym shoes until you donned a pair to go jogging or to play basketball.

How times have changed, now you have to take out a second mortgage to purchase the latest Air Jordan or Adidas Yeezy running shoes.

The priorities of some young people are so skewed that they will literally kill someone to steal their tennis shoes.

You would expect evangelical preachers to set a good example by dressing in comfortable and affordable footwear, but they are the biggest consumers of designer sneakers.

Ben Kirby, a self-described evangelical has documented the footwear and designer attire of celebrity evangelical ministers:

Disgraced Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz, who baptized Justin Bieber wears an $800 pair of “Fear of God” running shoes. Obviously, this evangelical clown doesn’t fear the Almighty.

Paula White, who served as Donald Trump’s primary spiritual adviser, has been photographed wearing $785 Stella McCartney slip-ons.

Pastor Stephen R Chandler at Destiny Church in Maryland wears a pair of Air Jordans that retail for $8,100. 

Seattle megachurch pastor Judah Smith has been seen sporting a Judah Smith in a $3,600 Gucci jacket.  

If Jesus returned these evangelical ministers would mock him for wearing sandals.

Evangelical televangelists aren’t just interested in spreading xenophobia, misogyny, racism and false conspiracy theories, they’re also in it for filthy lucre.

My only question is why is Ben Kirby still a self-described evangelical? Why the holy fuck does any rational and spiritually-minded person still give their hard-earned money to this evangelical charlatans.

Trump Wax Figure Removed From Public View After Visitors Attack It

“A wax figure of former President Donald Trump was temporarily removed from Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in San Antonio, Texas, after sustaining damage from customers.”

USA Today

It’s not uncommon for wax figures to sustain damage by visitors as part of normal wear and tear, but the damage that the Trump effigy sustained can’t be attributed to normal wear and tear.

Customers had such a visceral reaction to Trump’s wax figure that they punched, scratched and clawed at it.

The pummeling that was inflicted on the Trump likeness wasn’t a commentary on its artistic quality, but on the racism, xenophobia, homophobia and corruption that the flesh and blood Trump represents.

The narcissistic Trump is probably apoplectic that his wax representation was removed from public view, because surely, he knows that that there will be precious few statues erected to celebrate the worst president in history.

In a way I’m sorry that the Trump simulacrum was put in storage because it served a useful role as an outlet for our outrage for how Trump almost destroyed our democracy in four short years.

It’s just too bad that the real Trump can’t be put away in storage in a nursing home for the criminally insane.
