Rosie scared of Christians

Not sure how I missed this, but a couple of weeks ago on the View, new host Rosie O’Donnell addressed the threat of Radical Christians.

Rosie thinks that

Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation of church and state.

What???? OK, so she’s probably upset that she can’t marry her girlfriend, but opposing Gay Marriage is a long way from bombing, riots and murder.

Rosie went on to add

“…we are bombing innocent people in other countries. True or false?”

So she is holding the Radical Chrisitian community responsible for Afghanistan and Iraq? This is not just wrong, it’s delusional. It is a FACT that the vast majority congress, liberals and conservative, have repeatedly supported the war effort. In our last presidential election, John Kerry, who was definitely NOT supported by the christian community, did not ONCE come out and publicly promise to end the war. He danced around the issue like a little girl, critizing President Bush’s actions, but offering no real alternative.

Since it’s beginning, the majority of Americans (religious or not) have to some degree supported the war. Anti-war efforts have been limited to people like Cindy Sheehan who are on the fringe of society. Few have had the conviction to speak out against it publicly like Sheehan has, and most of them have been ridiculed. O’Donnell’s attempt to blame Radical Christians for bombing Iraq is just a pathetic attempt to rewrite history, place blame on a group she dosen’t personally like and associate that group with Muslim terrorists.

Pack your gel

Well, I haven’t posted anything lately. Off to California tomorrow to see Kara and Joe and I’ve been busier than a one legged man at a butt-kicking contest. Did have a couple posts I wanted to make before I left though.

As I’m getting ready for my trip I’ve been watching the current state of the airline security closely. One of the most amusing things I’ve seen is the TSA’s restriction on gel-filled bras. I won’t succumb to the cheap shot of making fun of them for requiring everyone to pack a gel-filled bra. My question is who is making sure no women are WEARING gel-filled bras. Does every woman with (appaerantly) large breasts have to prove they are real? Can I look forward to a plane full of braless women because their gel-filled undergarments have been confiscated? Most importantly, how can I get the bra inspector job? (I’ve wanted that since Jr. High).

So much of this airline security is just theatre and this is just a ridiculous example. For a critical view of our nations security policies I would highly recommend you read Bruce Schneier’s monthly newsletter.
