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.

"Jesus loves you."

So every now and then I get comments on this blog and, of those numerous comments, a handful turn out to not be Russians trying to sell me porn or herbal compounds that will make my penis and/or breasts bigger. Yes, clearly free enterprise has not treated Russia well.

Regardless, I recently received a comment in response to a post I wrote about Andy Schlafly's conservative bible project. This comment, provided by "The Dude," is so utterly wonderful that I have no choice but to reproduce it here for all of you:

You are a butt fucking, jew fag, nigger fucker. I hope you enjoy funding terrorism with all your liberal pot smoking you faggot. You are so to the left it makes my intellectual brain want to seize up.

If you want to get on the right side of Jesus you'd better jump on the soul train because right now you are going straight to hell.

"Jesus Loves You"

And it's hard to know how to respond to that. On the one hand this guy hates me enough that he apparently chooses to hurl incomprehensible racial slurs at me. On the other hand, he decides to follow this up by indicating his concern for my immortal soul and assures me that Jesus loves me. Which is, I suppose, a good thing since "The Dude" evidently does not particularly care for me. I guess I shouldn't be surprised by this, given that I'm rather accustomed to being publicly reminded that I am going to hell and/or should be shot for treason:

Likewise, I'm effectively beyond wonder that the above billboards are apparently okay while the atheist billboards that have been going up recently are "controversial." You know, billboards with controversial messages like these:

In fact the atheist billboards are so controversial that they have to be vandalized by good Christians:

And so, again, I really wonder about The Dude. Is he trying to shock me into changing my ways by calling me names? Because folks, let's face it: I'm an atheist living in the United States. Moreover, I'm an atheist who grew up in the south and has been an atheist for close to twenty years. This is not the first time I've been called nasty things because of my beliefs, nor the second or even third. Folks, getting called names is like f-ing communion for atheists: it doesn't taste good, and you don't like it, but it's just one of those things that comes with the territory. And however unpleasant it may be, after you swallow that stale little cracker, you do feel just a little more fulfilled. So thanks, The Dude, for reaffirming once more why I'm glad I'm a "butt fucking, jew fag, nigger fucker" and not a "good Christian" like you.

But I hope to hell you think about your behavior the next time you're inclined to bitch about what Dawkins says.

As I told you at breakfast this morning, The Dude's comments about you just help reinforce my nice, liberal identity as a non-racist, non-homophobic spouse.

More seriously, The Dude's comments bother me on such a fundamental level that I can't put it in words.

It's OK Drek. He's just mad Schlafly got his ass handed to him in his hat last night and didn't even seem to notice Colbert was mocking him, which made him look even more like a self absorbed, self righteous assbag.

Maybe it's some sort of joke - "makes my intellectual brain want to seize up" is the tip-off.

Yeah, I was wondering if it could be a joke- perhaps an example of Poe's Law- but I've heard this kind of thing before. So, hey, I decided to play it straight and if I get taken, I get taken.

Guy has been registered since 2007, though, so if it's one of my regular commenters playing a trick, they've had a lot of patience about it.

"wondering if it could be a joke" Me too. I keep thinking there has to be a Big Lebowski connection. Shomer Shabbos or soemthing.

Well, Buttfuck me runnin'! I got a lot of that a few years ago when I was a featured atheist on Rush Limbaugh's program! It's probably some Christian Sociologist from Baylor or Notre Dame.....

I see no particular reason to think the commenter is either a sociologist or an employee of either Notre Dame or Baylor. I'll grant the grammar is good but, by and large, I assume that we'd probably get a higher grade of comment from scholars at those locations. I also don't think the majority of Christians are quite like the commenter who was featured in this post but, hey, maybe that's just me.

Dude, that was a joke, and I have great reason to relish poking fun at the Jesus squad. The Christian sociologists will screw you over in much more painful and subtle ways (and that's not a joke!).

Joke or not, most bloggers would delete a comment like that, and then possibly freeze new comments, and then possibly post a whiny follow-up about how victimized they felt. Your method is way better! I appreciate your assumption that your readers are smart enough to brush off stupidity.

Keep on Drekkin.

You are lost. First of all, is there a basement dwelling troll left in the multiverse who hasn’t yet dragged themselves out of the primordial oze and logged onto the internet in order to announce our collective atheism towards Thor, that gardens can be beautiful without fairies (a power rebuttal to fairy apologetics, by the way, but it leaves a lot unanswered about the Gardener), and that we cling to Bronze Age skymen due to our fear of the dark?

Second, let's look at reality: Kalaam Cosmological Argument, the Argument from Reason, Fine Tuning of Universal Constants, irreducible biological complexity, the argument from morality.... Your entire world view lies shattered at your feet. If you truly honor the gods of reason and critical thinking half as much as you claim, you would plant your face firmly into your hand, step away from the device, find a quiet place, and rethink your life. The fact that you instead chose to post this Dawkins-Hitchens parroting megadouche reply demonstrates that there is no critical thinking involved in your neckbeardism. Yours is a petty, trivial, localized, earth bound philosophy, unworthy of the universe.
