Prez calls Romney a “bullshitter”. Of course, with its infallible sense of priorities, the media is excited about the Prez using the B word, not about the fact that a) Romney is, in fact, a bullshitter and B) the God King who called him that is secretly and unilaterally blowing up four year old girls with drones while bullshitting about how the bodies littering the ground are “terrorists”. Oh, and Romney is four square in favor of continuing the “blow up children and label them terrorists after the fact” program. So we’ve got the war criminal vote sewn up.
Mark! Scripture says you shouldn’t swear! True. That’s why I’m not swearing. Swearing is taking God’s name in vain. A judicious use of vulgarity in order to drive home a point about our insanely disordered cultural priorities is a form of rhetorical art and perfectly justified if it gets even one person to realize that blowing up innocent children and not making a reference to bovine scat is the real sign of the sickness of our culture. If you don’t believe me, ask St. Paul. He was not above getting attention with crude language and imagery, even going so far as to wish aloud that the Judaizers would castrate themselves (Gal 5:12).
“”Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law, justice and mercy and faith; these you ought to have done, without neglecting the others. You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!” (Matthew 23:23-24)
