Recently, while driving in the Atlanta metro area, I came upon a car with some interesting signage. First, I should say that I read bumper stickers. It’s an incurable habit, not always good given the kinds of things that Americans think they have the right to inflict on people these days via their bumpers. But at any rate, on the same car, I found:
“God Bless America”
and then, on either bottom edge of the back windows were two Playboy bunny-head logos.
Pretty good illustration of our sick, twisted society.
You know, the ones that tell “when I posted” a certain posting? Like “Right after Jerry Springer” or “Right after Your Best Life Now”? These little humorous ditties are all the courtesy of my (too much time on his hands) Webbie-Dude, Paul, who does a wonderful job of helping me to have this blog, and doesn’t charge me a dime. He gets his “pay” by my allowing him to do such silliness and to occasionally post a post of his own, like the stupid one about the “Official Newspaper of the No Kool-Aid Zone”. Thanks, Webbie-Dude Paul, for all your fine work, and the chuckles that we all get from your creative silliness.
And by the way, as far as positive impact on your life, I’d rate Jerry Springer and “Your Best Life Now” just about dead-even.
I don’t advocate some massive, organized, highly-publicized boycott that often has the effect of making Christians look stupid, but rather the passing along of information on this awful movie so that everyone in America is well-informed of what they’re getting themselves and their kids into if they attend. Pass the word along, not in an alarmist way, but so folks can know what’s happening. And then point them to The Chronicles of Narnia, if they want to see a great children’s movie.
drink the Kool-Aid - to accept an argument or philosophy blindly.
This phrase comes from the 1978 "Jonestown massacre" in which most members of the Peoples Temple cult, blindly following their leader Jim Jones, committed suicide by drinking cyanide-laced Kool-Aid.
Radically Tolerant - of all people, irrespective of race, faith, circumstance. As a person, you will be treated with the respect and dignity you deserve as an individual created in the image of God.
Radically Intolerant - of slipshod reasoning, emotion without intellectual substance, bad ideas, lazy thinking, cowardly ad hominem attacks, the preposterous notion that 9/11 is some government conspiracy (proceed directly to the Loony Bin; do not pass "Go"; do not collect $200), the designated hitter, and the Dallas Cowboys.
