Shut down the Vatican

OK, first, full disclosure. I am an atheist. There is no god. No invisible cloud being guiding the universe. No fatherly figure waiting at the pearly gates to judge me, you or anyone. I'm amazed that in 2010 people are still buying this crap.

That said it's time to shut down the Vatican. The catholic church is a joke. What more proof is needed than what is coming out now? Pope Benny the Rat knew of abuse, both physical and sexual for years. What did he do? He protected the church. Not the defenseless children. The church.

How fucking ironic that these scumbags who profess to fighting evil are the sickest, evilest people around. Benny the Rat should be tried for aiding and abetting criminals. If found guilty he should be punished.

So what does this mean to the whole catholic church? Well, the pope is chosen by the cardinals but they will tell you that god speaks through them. So how could god chose a criminal? How could god chose a man who allowed children to be abused? If the Rat steps down then it means god made a mistake, god doesn't speak through the cardinals or the devil made them do it! Take your pick but it pulls the bottom card from the house of cards. It all crumbles. And it should!

He will not resign of course. The whole catholic hierarchy is too fucking arrogant and none more so than the Rat. They'll dig in and the sheep will protect them. Fucking morons.

If you're a catholic and put a dime in the collection plate then you are an accessory after the fact. Some of your money will go to Rome and to protecting sick bastards. Don't think so? Ask your priest. If he isn't a fucking liar like the Rat he will tell you they send money to Rome. They'll say its for missionaries or charities. Bull shit.

Ah, the money. You'll hold your bake sales and bingo nights to raise funds for local use. I know some of you are still holding on the the belief the church does some good. I know you mean well. But while you're trying to make ends meet the Vatican is so fucking rich it's scary. Do the research. Check to see what stocks they hold. I dare you. The "internets" are great. Use "the Google" and find out.

I wish religion would go away. I wish reason ruled. Whatever good has come from the delusion of belief in a god or gods is buried under all the bad. The Vatican is not a good place. It has done far more harm than good.

Sadly the sheeple will defend the pope and the church. It will continue. But if you're a catholic and give them money than I hope you think about it tonight and every night when you lay down to go to sleep. I hope you think about the poor children who whose innocence was taken by the fucking perverts they were told to trust and admire. And you helped.

Are conservatives really that stupid?

Listening to the likes of Hannity the manatee, Big Fat Idiot Limbaugh, just plain crazy Beck and everyone's favorite moron, Sara, plain and simple, question global warming because of the latest big snow storm makes me ask. "Are they really that stupid or are they just willing to damage any chance we have of stopping global warming for political gain?"

Now with Palin I think it is stupidity. Why is it the people who follow her just can't see how incredibly dumb this woman is? She is so simple she has the write her 3 talking points on her hand. The same 3 she's been pushing since she hit the big time! People, this woman is dumb! I'll steal a Kurt Vonnegut line. One he used for W. "She's so dumb she thinks Peter Pan is a wash basin in a whorehouse." Kurt, we miss you!

Palin is dumb enough to think a snow storm is proof the earth is not getting warmer. Never mind that the last decade was the warmest on record. No matter that the Olympics are in trouble because Vancouver has no snow! Did I mention this woman is dumb! What a sad statement this is about our country that she would be taken seriously for anything other than the manager of a beauty salon. No wait. That's an insult to someone smart enough to manage a business. She couldn't even do that! I guess when our great uneducated masses spend their time watching American Idol, Dancing with the Stars and all the other tripe out there it's to be expected.

Hannity, on the other hand seems to have a spark of intellect. He's no Rhodes Scholar for sure but he has double the IQ points of Palin. (Which puts him double digits at least.) In his case I think no lie is too big as long as it furthers his agenda or puts money in his pocket.

Beck is the same story except his audience is the dumbest on the planet and he knows it. He's a clown for hire.

Listen people. Global warming does not mean Maine is the new Florida. The effect are more complicated than that. Raising the temperature of the world's oceans had a huge effect on ocean currents which in turn changes weather patterns. Also warmer air holds more moisture. This leads to more precipitation. Rain and snow. In the northeast the great lakes get warmer in the summer and freeze later in the year. When the cold air comes down out of Canada it whips across the lakes and picks up all that water. When the air mass hits land the moister is dropped as snow. It's call "Lake Effect Snow". People who live along Lake Erie know when the lake water is warm they're in for lake effect. The warming leads to bigger storms. This concept is too much for stupid people like Sara.

The same holds for the Gulf of Mexico. As the water warms there hurricanes that pass over the water pick up more water and energy. Katrina. Remember that?

I have long held that there is a direct correlation between intellect and political leanings. Just look at some of the presidents. Bush Jr. was a C student at best. Conservative. Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar. Liberal. Ronny Ray Gun. Conservative. Palin is dumber than a box of hair. Conservative. Obama was a constitutional law professor. Liberal. No need to go on.
