The unwavering disciples of the Prince of Darkness performed a Pink Mass over the grave of Catherine Idalette Johnston, the mother of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps Jr. Westboro has yet to officially comment on the eternal gaying of its leader’s dead mom, but the owner of the cemetery where the ceremony was performed has filed charges with the local police department.
It’s a good thing Mrs. N. isn’t the “I told you so” kind of person. It isn’t like Mrs. N. didn’t try to warn people when the Fundamentalist Christian scholars over at Liberty University started praying Gay people Straight. Don’t you remember? And, it isn’t like she didn’t warn you all about the shenanigans those Mormons get up to out in Salt Lake City with that Mormon Pumpernickel Choir of theirs. Marrying their dead Mormon relatives to non-Mormon dead people so that they can get into Mormon Heaven (where ever the fuck that is). Them and their magic underpants and all.
It was only a matter of time until someone put all this religious mumbo-jumbo together. It was inevitable that Freedom of Religion, that ridiculous notion that America was supposedly founded upon, showed its true colors. Sure, people of different religious allegiances and persuasions can be expected to hate and kill each other over actual, or, perceived insults, and unavoidable lapses in polite conduct… behavior… manners are all sure to end badly. That kind of stuff is, more or less, a given. But, as Mrs. N. knew all along… It was bound to get silly.
“Give them an inch and they will take a yard” How many times have you heard that said. Well! THIS is exactly the kind of shit you get when you let more than one brand of CRAZY, more than one breed of dog, loose in the yard unsupervised. This is the kind of misbehavior the deeply religious will get up to if you let them… and BOY do we let them!
It’s the same kind of baloney we get up to when we discuss kids. How many times have you heard it? “Oh, they are all special in their own way.” Sure they are. All special…
Now all this bullshitting each other in the name of Freedom and Liberty is really starting to take its toll on a persons ability to take ANYTHING seriously. We are beginning to learn that the more times you say yes to crazy… the harder it gets to ever say no. We are living the nightmare of our own design. We are adrift, all alone, in our own little flimsy boats in a vast and rolling sea of bullshit. Anything Goes… as it turns out, in the end, means everything goes.
For all any of you know, tomorrow morning, you could wake up to not only find yourself dead, but, Gay and Mormon TOO!
Don’t you dare say I didn’t warn you.
