Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

There's a dress code?

I often enjoy taking a turn about the wacky halls of Conservapedia, a place where logic isn't so much out of favor as actively opposed. In any case, I recently observed something in their headlines section that I simply have to share with you. I think you'll see why fairly quickly:



"Dressed in black," a German 17-year-old former public school student kills 15 people. Wearing all black is characteristic of anti-Christian belief systems. Our list of young mass murderers grows, and see how many were anti-Christian products of public schools. [emphasis original] [seriously, no shit, the emphasis is from the original]


Okay, so, wearing all black is characteristic or anti-Christian belief systems? Seriously? What about:

Priests?



Or nuns?



Or the Eastern Orthodox?



Or Martin Luther?



Or even the Puritans!



Are we seriously being told that Catholics, Protestants, and the Eastern Orthodox church are all either heavily populated with, or were founded by, folks with anti-Christian belief systems? Well.... yes and no:



Sometimes talking about Conservapedia feels like shooting fish in a barrel. Today, the fish are committing suicide before I can even get the gun loaded.


As a side note Andrew "The Banhammer" Schlafly is, so far as anyone can tell, formally affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church. I say "formally affiliated with" rather than "is a member of" because, really, even I give Roman Catholicism too much credit to want to blame it- even implicitly- for the disaster that is Andrew Schlafly.

He's Roman Catholic????? All this time I thought he was an evangelical protestant. Can you BE that evangelical and Roman Catholic? The compartments in my head and being ripped open, and it's quite a painful process.
