He feels cheated out of the chance to cheat!

What an outstanding character!

  1. You know this delegate stuff is stupid in this day-and-age. It wasn’t practical back in the early days but Americans should have direct elections for presidents now.

    I shouldn’t criticize though; my head-of-state is the Queen of England.

Terminal 7 at JFK evacuated and hundreds of passengers re-screened after TSA agent didn’t notice metal detector was unplugged

The TSA’s bungling reached a new low yesterday when a JFK Airport terminal had to be evacuated and hundreds of passengers marched back through security screening all because one dimwitted agent failed to realize his metal detector had been unplugged, sources told The Post.

The stunning error led to hours of delays, two planes called back from the runway and infinite frustration for furious passengers.

“The truth is, this is the failure of the most basic level of diligence,” a law-enforcement source said.

“How can you expect the public to feel confident of the mission of the TSA if they don’t even know if the lights are turned on?”

Thank you, dear law-enforcement source, for admitting this isn’t about real security but about making people feel confident.

Others, like Jason Bailey, who was headed to San Diego, didn’t mind the delay.

“It’s a big inconvenience, but it’s better safe than sorry,” he said.

Jason Bailey, you are what’s wrong with America. Shame on you.

What Happens If We Wake Up With a Mormon in the White House?

Posted on June 24th, 2012 at 16:39 by John Sinteur in category: Pastafarian News

According to a controversial Joseph Smith prophecy, when America degenerates to the point where “the Constitution hangs by a thread” — and most TV pundits agree we’re there already — at this time, a Mormon will be elected President of the United States, triggering a whole series of disaster-film plot twists: the end of the world as we know it; the overthrow of “gentile” rule; and the long-promised Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Only, instead of teleporting Himself somewhere interesting like Jerusalem, say the Mormons, Jesus will stage his comeback in Independence, Missouri.

Let me put it another way. Mitt Romney was raised to believe that if Mitt Romney is elected president, Mitt Romney will rule the world (or whatever is left of it) as the Mormon gods’ Viceroy, while Jesus Christ stumbles through tornado country, making crop circles in a corn field, or whatever it is you do there.

If you don’t believe me, it’s because you don’t know the operating software system Romney runs on. A slow and stupid operating system, sure, but it may soon be hooked up to about 5,000 nuclear warheads and a global empire, so ignoring it won’t save you.

  1. Slightly selective quoting. You missed these parts (to be fair and balanced, you know):

    The prophecy is not accepted as church doctrine but remains part of Mormon lore. (…)

    Romney, a seventh-generation Mormon who has served as a Latter-day Saint bishop, has distanced himself from the founder’s theocratic talk, just as he has repudiated plural marriage. “That’s not official church doctrine,” he said of the White Horse Prophecy in a 2011 Salt Lake Tribune interview. “There are a lot of things that are speculation and discussion by church members and even church leaders that aren’t official church doctrine. I don’t put that at the heart of my religious belief.”

  2. You might want to take the time to do a little research on the topic before you try to incite a riot. It does not say that there will be a Mormon in the white house, or that he will rule the world. Why you want to misquote this prophecy, or assume it is doctrine of the LDS church is beyond me.

  3. Tell that to the newly baptized Anne Frank. These people are crazy as loons. I’m not saying christians are much better, hope you have a better defense than that.

LGBT People Should Be Put to Death, Says Aussie Salvation Army Major

Posted on June 24th, 2012 at 2:51 by John Sinteur in category: Pastafarian News

[Quote]:

in an interview with LGBT journalists Serena Ryan and Pete Dillon, a senior Salvation Army official said that non-celibate LGBT people should be put to death.

[..]

Ryan told Craibe that she prepared for the interview by reading all 170 pages of Salvation Story: Salvationist Handbook of Doctrine, a manual published by the group’s international headquarters in London and available online. She asked him if that text was still being used to coach Salvation Army soldiers and people preparing to enter church membership. When Craibe replied in the affirmative, Ryan proceeded to point out several chapters that she found particularly troubling, including a section called “The problem of evil” (page 28) which cites Romans 1:18-32, the section of the Bible containing an infamous and violent condemnation of homosexuality:

For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error. . .

They know God’s decree, that those who practise such things deserve to die—yet they not only do them but even applaud others who practise them.

  1. The SA (!) does charitable work among the destitute, but they have homophobic leaders, cultish and oppressive beliefs, shameful labour practices, and they use their access to the disadvantaged to evangelize.

    On the other hand, the rest of us can hardly get off the couch to help our fellows in any practical way.

    If there is a god, he can be a right tool sometimes.
