Theocrats’ War on Democracy
Not well. The youngs might have a problem with this one, as all polling indicates that youngsters just do not care about the Culture Wars:
House Democrats who initiated a discharge petition to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act were optimistic about its prospects despite obstacles ahead for the legislative maneuver.
Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.), who’s gay and chief sponsor of ENDA, held a news conference on Capitol Hill with Democratic colleagues Wednesday to tout the importance of the discharge petition, which he had filed with the House clerk’s office earlier in the day.
Polis described the discharge petition as a means to move forward “in preventing people from being fired for their job just because of who they love or their gender orientation.”
At the time of news conference, Polis said the discharge petition already has more than 75 names, and momentum continues “to pressure Speaker Boehner to simply allow the House to work its will and pass ENDA.” It takes a total of 218 names for a discharge petition to succeed and move a bill to the House floor.
What is not so obvious is that Not. One. Single. Republican. has signed on to this. None. Just like the all the other initiatives that are meant to protect women and minorities, Y’all Qaeda is only interesting in helping straight, white, Xristian men.
We at MPS continue to insist that the War on Women is real, but we want to remind everyone that it is only one front in Y’all Qaeda’s real goal: War on Democracy.
…without this asshole from Y’all Qaeda running a write-in candidacy for Mitch’s KY Senate seat.
A white supremacist is running a write-in campaign for U.S. Senate in Kentucky to promote his anti-Semitic slogan: “With Jews we lose.”
Robert Ransdell’s name won’t appear on ballots, but county clerks must count write-in votes for the Cincinnati-area coordinator of National Alliance who is also affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan.
He’s going to split the vote for ol’ amply be-chinned Mitch.
“How can I be racist against Muslims or Islam when the ethnicity is actually Arab? This is kind of confusing.”
[The goal of all Muslims is] “the destruction of Western civilization from within. This is a cancer in our nation that needs to be cut out. The media is playing right into their hands.”
—Oklahoma state Senator John Bennett, a proud member of Y’all Qaeda.
Bad-haired GOP sex-lizard and notorious Appalachian trail hiking, amateur castanet playing Lothario, former South Carolina Governor Mark “Kiss Me South of the Border” Sanford is now alleged by his former firecracker lady fiancée to have used her:
The Facebook post caught Chapur off guard, and she told the New York Times Saturday that she found out about it through the news.
She also explained the events leading up to her break-up with Sanford. She told the Times that Sanford has asked to postpone the engagement until his son was 18 and the custody battles wouldn’t matter as much anymore.
“I’ve already been five years waiting and two years since the engagement,” she said, and explained that she couldn’t stay with him and postpone the wedding.
Chapur said that Sanford’s explanation that the two ended their engagement due to his divorce and custody issues does not tell the whole story.
“I think that I was not useful to him anymore — he made the engagement thing four months before the elections,” she told the Times. “So this is not about his son, this is about his career and his ambitions.”
I told you I thought he was putting on his Appalachian Trail hiking boots. What a shitheel.
Mark Sanford breaks up with fiancé, blames ex-wife
Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., announced Friday that he broke off his engagement to Argentine fiancee Maria Belen Chapur, saying on Facebook that he was forced to end the relationship because his ex-wife had filed a new legal complaint against him.
The post came days after Sanford’s ex-wife, Jenny Sanford, lobbed a new round of legal troubles at the former governor. Her latest legal complaint, filed Aug. 28, demanded Sanford undergo anger management and sought to modify the couple’s existing custody arrangement.
Sanford also said he had decided to hire a lawyer to defend him in the dispute. Prior to the latest legal filing, he said, he had not sought outside legal counsel in his dealings with his ex-wife despite a high-profile, heated split.
Such a shame, too, as bad-haired GOP sex-lizard and notorious Appalachian trail hiking, Mark “Kiss Me South of the Border” Sanford’s castanets were getting the rhythm.

There’s not a chance that we can survive this much stupid in one place.
What was once billed as a Catholic event can no longer be called such,” Barber tells OneNewsNow. “They are openly allowing a sin-based organization to march in their parade and to effectively put their stamp of approval on what the Bible unequivocally calls sinful behavior.”
Faith-based organizations that want to remain loyal to the Bible have a decision to make as to whether to participate. Barber offers a suggestion.
“Some faith-based organizations could carry banners and so forth exclaiming the truths of scripture relative to homosexual sin,” he suggests. “[They could] use the opportunity to denounce what the New York City St. Patrick’s Parade organization has done here and to take them to task for casting aside the truths of scripture and disobeying the teachings of Christ.”

(As regular readers know, our position at MPS is that there is a War on Women and it is waged by the Theocrats as one front on their War on Democracy.)
So Greater Wingnuttia thinks that they have found the secret message to overcome their loss of the female vote following such disasters as the Legitimate Rape and the much ballyhooed Hobby Lobby Supreme Court Ruling, as well as the failure of single Republican in both houses to vote for the Minimum Wage Hike, or the Equal Pay legislation, and well, you know, for failing to reconfirm the Violence Against Women Act. No one member of Y’all Qaeda voted for any of these things. Not one.
So what is the secret strategy: to make The Pill an over-the-counter drug.
But here’s the catch: it then becomes your cost to buy your Rush Limbaugh Slut Pills, not the insurance company. Oh, and other birth control methods? IUDs, etc., which cost a lot more, will still cost a lot more and you will still have to petition your insurance company for them.
So once again, Wingnuttia: Thanks Boys, We Love It When You Do This. — The Dems
Lookout, Jeebus! The goalpost looks like a crucifix!
The American Decency Association is planning to protest the Dallas Cowboys signing openly gay player Michael Sam to its practice squad.
Because Jeebus loved football, especially on Sundays?
Anyway, you may recall the American Decency Association from their awesome, manly boycott of Satanic Honeymaid Graham Crackers, the preferred treat of the ‘mos:
It’s not a matter of acceptance; it’s a matter of an evil agenda which is being pushed upon America and around the world. Satan continues to attack God’s design and skew it to his own workings. He continues to take words like “wholesome” and “family” and twist them for his own purposes. He takes a symbol of God’s promise (the rainbow) and hijacks it, twisting it to his own design. Satan calls it normal; God calls it sin. We live in a day when “evil” is called “good” and “good” is called “evil.” That which is meant to glorify God (family, the church, etc) is being taken and bent out of shape until it is hardly recognizable. -
Which of course led to this rebuttal:
…by redefining fasting:
Virginia-based anti-gay group Family Foundation has announced a fast in opposition to same-sex marriage – but participants will be be allowed to eat, reports Pink News.
The group’s 40 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance For Marriage started on August 27th and runs until October 5th, the day before the Supreme Court begins its next session and hears the first in a series of same-sex marriage appeals cases.
However, not wanting to expend too much energy on hatred, the group announced “we are asking the entire Body of Christ to join us for this feast – giving up physical food isn’t necessary – but feeding on the spiritual food provided is vital.”
An, Xristian Xrazies: they can have their cake and eat it, too.
