Discussion in the comments section of the post on Stanley Williams’ execution got me thinking about fundamentalism (thank you all for the support!).
Conservative Christians (I am going to start a petition to have that phrase eliminated from the hearts, minds, souls, and pysches of humanity next year) think that fighting cuts in domestic poverty programs is not a priority. Maybe one day while I am at home for Christmas and New Year’s I will read a Conservative Christian (that’s the last time I will ever say that; from now on, they are called *fundies*) Bible. Their transition must be a lot better than any I’ve ever read. I’m sure the editing is amazing. I’m sure the Gospels are much more compeling when you take out all the trash about taking care of the poor, the sick, the disenfranchised. I’m sure it reads a lot better when you kill your enemies instead of loving them.
Yeah, so that’s what I want for Christmas: The Holy Bible, Fundie Edition, with Jerry Fallwell‘s signature.
