24 June 2013 Celebrate Good ol’ American Stupidity

“The GOP Dream: An America Like Heaven that is For Christians Only
Imagine the right wing dream government, where our leaders have nothing to do with anybody who does not accept Jesus as the their savior. That is the recent actions of the mayor of Vero Beach, Fla., writ large..”.

“Jihawg Ammo: Pork-laced Bullets Designed To Send Muslims Straight ‘To Hell'

SPOKANE, Wash. (RNS) Still angry about the idea of an Islamic cultural center opening near Ground Zero, a group of Idaho gun enthusiasts decided to fight back with a new line of pork-laced bullets.
South Fork Industries, based in Dalton Gardens, Idaho, claims its ammunition, called Jihawg Ammo, is a “defensive deterrent to those who violently act in the name of Islam.”
The bullets are coated in pork-infused paint, which the company states makes the ammo “haram,” or unclean, and therefore will keep a Muslim who’s shot with one of the bullets from entering paradise...”

Cassi Creek: As July 4th approaches and we prepare to celebrate the Revolution that, paired with England’s other ongoing wars, allowed us to separate from the British Empire; it seems that others are lining up to prove that a little stupidity goes a long way. 
Today we look at two examples of religious intolerance and just plain religion-based malice.  Someone in Idaho obviously has managed to integrate three or more unverified myths linking the 1857 Indian Army Mutiny, the Philippines HUK uprising,, and supposed Israeli deterrent actions to decrease terrorism. 
          As the Jihawg article states, dead is dead.  Whether the bullet that causes one’s demise is lubricated with lard or Teflon makes little of no difference. 

          As to who gains admission to a mythical cloudland or an also mythical lake of brimstone, Snopes also offers no proof of an afterlife.   Which way you face to pray and in which language you supplicate a mythical superhero with a bent for mass murder   Judaism postulates no afterlife.  When you’ve been killed in battle with ancient Hebrews or modern day Israelis, they expect you to stay dead.  Battle with Christians, Muslims, or other be - here- after cults and they want to wipe out your unproven soul as well. 
          Arizona, not to be outdone in the stupidity competition has introduced legislation to prohibit atheists from graduating high school.  I can’t understand any state being so full of hate and ignorance as to attempt something so obviously unconstitutional.  Well, there are several red states that come close in overall idiocy.  Summer’s barely begun and the scores can easily be changed by the actions of just a few elected officials.
