I suppose they won’t be offended

The crazies are out in full force this year

Apparently, people get offended by my activism.

Separating church and state is a pretty serious topic for me. Atrocities occur when you blur that line and eventually destroy it. It won’t turn out too well for the Christo-fascists, either. That brings to mind a time when the Christo-fascists DID get their way in the United States.

The 18th Amendment

Back in the early 20th century the Christo-fascists weilded so much power that they were able to influence a Constitutional Amendment. For those of you unfamiliar this one reads as follows:

AMENDMENT XVIII

SECTION 1.

After one year from the ratification of this article the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for beverage purposes is hereby prohibited.

SECTION 2.

The Congress and the several states shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

SECTION 3.

This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of the several states, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the states by the Congress.

So alcohol became illegal. I honestly think these Christo-fascists shot too low. They took away people’s distraction instead of trying to enforce some other type of moral law. The President, Woodrow Wilson, vetoed the Amendment but it was overruled by both the House and the Senate. I guess it didn’t matter since the law didn’t really apply to those in politics (sound familiar). Those in political power would still peddle alcohol and have their own grand little parties (the White House was stocked with bootleg liquor under the Harding administration), but it was a crime for the lesser “common” folk to do such a thing.

It’s always about the kids

You know how politics goes. Unless you actually read the regulations or rules, study up on a bill, or read the details of a law then don’t trust the advertising of what’s being presented. The people coming at me have no idea what the regulations are and whether they are compliant with the Constitution of the United States. I was over the nativity display before it even went to press. Infraction corrected – mission accomplished – on to the next job.

These Christo-fascists have co-opted the term “Family Values” as if the sole way to have a family is if you are a conservative Christian in a white heterosexual relationship – because let’s be honest those Family Value conferences aren’t filled with a lot of diversity, nor do they appear to care.

It’s a feigned attempt to inject their version of morals, which is something entirely subjective, into an objective legality.

For the Christians who support a secular government – and a few of you have reached out to me recently – I thank you and commend you. You have a knowledge of what true freedom is and you are willing to allow everyone the opportunity to worship, or refrain from worship, however they see fit. Now I’ve got some big news coming up later this week. I think some of my other activism may have been a slam dunk. The signs are looking good.

    The same people who brought us Prohibition are now fighting against legalized marijuana. You know, because the Temperance folks did such a bang-up job improving the country the last time they got involved with this stuff.

      Legal or not, marijuana is a waste of minds.

      • dagobarbz

        Yeah? Tell that to the guy who put the Mars lander down with hover tech.

        Try not to make assumptions about things you clearly don’t comprehend, m’kay? Does ums think stoners are really just like the Cheech and Chong comedy act?

        You have no idea what you’re talking about. Too bad you insist on sharing your ignorance.

      • Randy Wanat

        So is religion, but we ain’t trying to outlaw that!

    • busterggi

      Marijuana had been legal until just after prohibition was repealed. Then it & other drugs were made illegal as a sop to the Christofascists as the government figured there wasn’t enough opposition to it as there was for alcohol.

  • dagobarbz

    What is it with these people seeking to inflict misery on their fellow humans?
    No euthanasia, no cannabis, no alcohol. Earlier, no music, no dancing, no reading books that weren’t the bible. Vile busybodies! That motto on our early coin, ‘MIND YOUR BUSINESS’ was a superior choice to ‘in god we trust.’ Cuz when you trust god, this is what you get.

    Loudmouths claiming god wants the same things they want, oddly enough.

    • Kevin B. Johnston

      People should have the absolute right to waste their minds on alcohol and weed. We need something to numb the masses so they’ll stay out of the way of the rest of us.

      • RedGreenInBlue

        I can’t tell whether your comment is snark or serious. If it is the latter, I would be interested to hear your definition of “the masses”. I am not optimistic that any definition can adequately account for the fact that drug misuse and dependence is not restricted to particular socioeconomic, cultural or ethnic groups, and therefore any use of the term comes over as élitism. (I might be completely misinterpreting your comment, of course, in which case, my apologies.)

  • busterggi

    Ah yes, prohibition – the amendment that created modern organized crime! Thanks Christofascists.
