Pharyngula

John Kasich is a big fat idiot

Watch the Fox News announcer get all pissy about Brian Flemming’s Blasphemy Challenge.

The funny thing is watching Kasich declare himself just “sick” about it and accusing Flemming of “preying on children” and getting upset because the people on youtube are not attacking Mohammed enough…and then ask a calm and smiling Flemming why he’s so angry. If people choose to deny gods, what right does a sanctimonious slug like Kasich have to tell them they can’t?

    Come on valhar2000, you know as well as I that our High Priest, Richard Dawkins, says we shouldn’t eat christian babies.
    We should eat the babies of christian parents.

    So saith Herb West:

    I’d like to know if anyone here would applaud PZ if he were to post a videotape of himself ripping a page out of the bible and denying the holy spirit.

    I would, actually. It might depend on the specific page in question; none are of divine origin, but some are funnier to destroy than others. Also, I’m pretty sure PZ is smart enough to come up with much more inventive things to deny than just the Holy Ghost. He has a whole list to choose from, naturally — Amon-Ra to Zeus, plus all those orbiting teapots and Invisible Pink Unicorn.

    Derision and laughter would be the only appropriate responses.

    Laughter, yes; derision, not so much.

    The website say to videotape yourself saying the words “I deny the holy spirit.” Doing so because an internet website tells one to is contemptible. Exploiting the stupidity of teenage sheep to score a little book publicity is obscene.

    Indulging in a victimless crime — one much less hurtful than many other acts of teenage rebellion I could name — because a website advises one to do it may be foolish, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call it “contemptible”. Is listening to a song because it’s on the Top 40 “contemptible”? Unimaginative, perhaps.

    Participating in the Blasphemy Challenge is, or can be, an act of creativity. It is by any reasonable standard far less contemptible or obscene than calling teenagers stupid sheep.

    And people wonder why books by Harris, Dawkins, and Dennett are selling so well. The kind of barely controlled hysteria Kasich exhibited here is all the proof anyone needs to confirm that we’re in a baaaaaad place in this nation.

    Before I forget, thankyou, MartinC.

    There is not telling what the High Priest Richard Dawkins would have done to me, what with him being a militant extremist atheist, in charge of a whole legion of angry atheist who, somehow, control the world…

    Damn, this atheism thing doesn’t make much sense… Gotta ask Pat to explain it to me again…
