News of the Weird Religion

Religious crazies on parade

Thanks, PZ. Thanks a lot for posting what has to be one of the stupidest, most vile examples of an idiotic religious nut that I’ve seen in a long time. It was so bad that it has to be seen to be believed:

It hurt my brain just to look at this smug, smarmy twit gloat over his belief that Richard Dawkins (and Heath Ledger, for that matter) are now (in the case of Heath Ledger) or will be (in the case of Richard Dawkins) burning in hell for all eternity. It’s guaranteed to raise your blood pressure–unless you’re a hateful bigot as well. Thankfully, B-grade horror movie sound effects that wouldn’t have been out of place in Plan 9 from Outer Space show up at the end to provoke hysterical laughter at the silliness of it all. I can’t help but note that it’s truly appropriate that these brain-dead morons call themselves the King of Terrors ministry.

Actually, though, it would probably be more appropriate to call them the King of Clowns ministry, except that it would be an insult to clowns everywhere.

Ah, well, at least I can amuse myself with the antics of that even more hateful bunch of addled fundamentalists, the Westboro Baptist Church, as Ed Brayton tells us that chief nutcase “Reverend” Fred Phelps has issued an open letter to Heath Ledger’s family asking where the funeral service will be held, so that he and his fellow crazies can show up to do one of their patented hate-drenched “protests” against homosexuals because “Heath would want us to appear–in religious protest and as a warning to the living–that they should repent.” Gee, do you think Ledger’s family will tell them where the funeral will be?

I wonder.

Truly, you can’t make stuff like this up.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
