u mad Sarah Palin?

Achievement unlocked: I have pissed off Sarah Palin.

To answer her question, America is succumbing to regulations that have been in place for decades. They are grounded in the US constitution, so I suppose America is succumbing to that too. Perhaps I should break it down barney style.

Here is the church.

And here is the steeple.

And here is the regulation that protects ‘We the people…’

AR 165-1 12-3 k. Symbols. The chapel environment will be religiously neutral when the facility is not being used for scheduled worship. Portable religious symbols, icons, or statues may be used within a chapel during times of religious worship. Symbols are to be moved or covered when not in use during services. Distinctive religious symbols, such as crosses, crucifixes, the Star of David, Menorah, and other religious symbols will not be affixed or displayed permanently on the chapel interior, exterior, or grounds. Permanent or fixed chapel furnishings, such as the altar, pulpit, lectern, or communion rail will be devoid of distinctive religious symbols.

That was quite a treat to see pop up in my twitter feed.

    Interestingly enough, that precise paragraph is present in the version of AR 165.1 that went into effect on 26 May 2000. I wonder haw far back it actually went into effect? My Google-fu is being overwhelmed by work pressures today.

    Oh, Justin: I can’t think of too many people that I would like to irritate more than Ms. Palin. You did good!

    Whatever you do, stay away from the comments on the Faux Nooz story. Gave me a splitting headache.

      I’m screen capping them now. I replied to a bunch of them. Some are openly advocating for violence against Sgt. Muhlnickel (or all atheists, or all foxhole atheists).

      I bet they have yellow ribbons on their SUV’s.

    Next up: Ann “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren’t punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That’s war. And this is war.” Coulter.

    Outstanding! Look forward to the screen caps.

    Suck it, fundies. And for all the Fox News “keyboard commandos” advocating violence against military atheists -what are they going to do? Throw their obese asses at them?

    Hey Justin,

    I apologize, because I have just not figured out how twitter works. I gather you got a shout out from Palin, but I am not seeing it.

    Can you screencap it and then present it in a way even I can figure it out?

    (I really hate twitter.)

    Uh oh. Now she can see the Middle East from Alaska.

  • StevoR, fallible human being

    Nice rhyme there too, Justin Griffith. Classic.

    But is she really pissed off or just wondering and taking a long time to come up with something?

    Nah, she’s pissed off ain’t she!

  • George

    How you have not been silenced with a poison dart is beyond belief.

    Keep it up! I think your bucking of the system is needed. I enjoy following your activism.

    Best,

    George.
