Oh it was worse than that--it was "OH THEY ARE ANTI-CHRISTIANS BECAUSE THIS IS OUR HIGH HOLY WEEK!!!!!"  Yeah, they went THERE.  Asking Kyl to work was tantamount to ATTACKING JESUS.

We need a "Godwin's Law" type of thing for Christians and Christmas for chrissake.

My parents, last night, swear to fucking gawd, were whining about how they don't have the FREEDOM in this society to express their Christianity. 

I took a breath and reached DEEP into my PD-dom and said the following, "Yeah, the Christians in the US are the largest majority I've ever heard of screaming about how they are victimized for not being allowed to express themselves, when there's a new box church with a Starbucks inside going up on every street corner!"

And then my husband hit them with the one-two punch of "no mosque on Ground Zero."  Yeah, they dropped that schtick quickly.

It's a case of swallowing wholesale of what is spoonfed to them about their own culture.  My dad does it WAY less than my mom--seems he actually listened to NPR and read the LAX's and The Economist while in the clink.  Not that he rounded out his views to the point of meeting me halfway, but he is going to think twice about parroting the Bible Thumping Brochure in the future.

My mom won't pay any fucking attention, however.  She's a lost cause.

Thanks...though I have to say it ended the evening on one of those sour notes of, can't wait to get out of the car and get away from each other before something more explosive is said.

One really shouldn't ever end the holi-daze on politics and religion, BOTH, at 10 pm, after driving 250 mi roundtrip...

So take it over the top.  Tell her you read that Obama is thinking of making everything other than Pentacostal Christianity a federal offense.

:lulz:  Well, she is not so nuts as to be a Birther or Truther.  I don't want to give that impression.  But she's actually more of a Dittohead than she has any right to be.

And she isn't stupid, and has already heard me complain bitterly that Obama's making it such that his presidency's a flop progressive-wise and how he is not delivering, might as well be McCain in there right now, blah blah.

Tea Party Nation Founder: Let's Get Rid Of The 'Socialist' Methodist Church
Jillian Rayfield | December 20, 2010, 12:24PM

 
Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips has a dream: "No more Methodist Church."

A blog post on his Tea Party Nation page says that on Friday he walked by the United Methodist Building in Washington D.C., which had a sign that said, "Pass the DREAM Act." Phillips wrote: " I have a DREAM. That is, no more United Methodist Church."

Phillips explains that he was formerly a member of the church, but he left because it's "the first Church of Karl Marx," and "little more than the "religious" arm of socialism."

"The Methodist church is pro-illegal immigration," he continues. "They have been in the bag for socialist health care, going as far as sending out emails to their membership "debunking" the myths of Obamacare. Say, where are the liberal complaints on the separation of church and state?"

"In short, if you hate America, you have a great future in the Methodist church," he says.

Phillips has recently argued that it's a "wise idea" to only let property owners vote. He's also defended an email he wrote calling for supporters to help "retire" Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) because "he is the only Muslim member of congress."
" It's just that Depeche Mode were a bunch of optimistic loveburgers."

That is a pretty well done one considering how shitty most of them are. The USMC must have more bored privates than the Army.
