As if the abundance of blessings I receive wasn’t already enough for any single human on the planet, and in spite of my continued outpouring of flirty heresies, providence has again reached out and given me a divine tickle.
It’s heartwarming enough to realize how much my success does to destabilize the delicate sensibilities of the creeply (rhymes with deeply) religious, but when Mr. Deity steps up to the plate and covers two topics which have been front row/center here on my blog the last couple weeks? That sets me to pondering my odds on the Powerball lottery!!
The 32.4% of me that’s gay is pretty sure I’d be a lock to win that sucker if I made the pre-announcement that I’d tithe ten percent of my winnings to the Folsum Street Fair committee, because that’s how God rolls. He loves testing his sheep. (see Job). But I digress.
Mr. Deity takes a swipe at the racist Mormons and their incoherent (and patently bogus) early history. If you pay real close attention you get a clue as to where the polygamy fits in. My take on the current big Mormon scandal involving apostate Swedes is here in Mormon Blues and Mormon Blues 2.
The Big Finale
Starting at around the 5:15 mark on Mr. Deity’s video, is the not-so-heavily disguised (major league brutal!) assault on PZ Myers and his totally incredulous serial rape charges against Michael Shermer. Without ever mentioning the names of the participants involved or the fantastical rape charges themselves, Mr. Deity does more damage to the credibility of PZ Myers and his lunatic #atheismplus American Girlyban pom pom girls than even the esteemed Thunderf00t has managed to do in his smartly crafted four part series on Why Feminism is Poisoning Atheism.
The Moral of the Story
At the time of this post, I have no knowledge as to whether PZ has “ceased and desisted” in the manner prescribed by Mr. Shermer’s legal counsel. That’ll be something I check on immediately after hitting “post”. Last time I checked, the offending blog entry and related 46,442 comments (estimate) were still up. The anticipation of the atheist and skeptic blog and twitter community over this subject yesterday, was on par with that of Brits over the birth of the royal baby or that of the Catholics obsessed over the recent replacement of the Pope. FWIW, I think the only puff of smoke we’re likely to see rising in Morris Minnesota anytime soon will be from PZ’s eventual self immolation.
The Eventual Fallout
I’d be perfectly happy if PZ would just comply with Mr. Shermer’s extremely reasonable request to remove and apologize for his miscreant behavior and return to being the likably weird atheist uncle (the one who didn’t try to fiddle you under the table at Christmas dinner).
Many others are not as reasonable as myself. Suggested alternatives to “balance the scales of justice” include the removal of Mr. Myer’s head, which would then be placed either on a pike outside the Morris Minnesota campus as a warning to future demagogues, or alternatively, as a hood ornament on the Rolls Royce Mr. Shermer is going to buy with the monetary damages
