Monday School: Religion and guns…

 

It’s Monday! Time once again for Monday School, STILL “The Rational Corrective To All That Nonsense They Tried To Teach You Yesterday!”

Today’s lesson is going to be a bit of a review cause I’m coming back to an issue I’ve discussed a few times already. I’ve already dedicated a few entries to the issue of gun control. Today I’m going to do a quick recap of those entries and provide some new information where religion is concerned regarding the topic.

It’s a little chilly out there, eh?

It was a little frosty this morning as the windchill dropped to a nut freezing negative thirty-five. They are calling for that to drop to an even chillier negative forty tomorrow, so I layered up and went out today to get a few errands done. I have the boys coming over this weekend so I picked up a few groceries and things to feed the little buggers when they’re here.

Monday School: By the way dumbass, it’s round!


Welcome back to Monday School, still your place to get a weekly dose of “The Rational Corrective To All That Nonsense They Tried To Teach You
Yesterday!”

Today our topic is a little flat, literally: Should we be able to dismiss any holy scriptures when we know that they contradict something that has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt?

Who do you think you are?

After almost a full year, I’ve parted ways with the online magazine that I had been writing movie reviews, TV and Sports editorials with. It wasn’t a paying position, so the work I did for them was pretty awesome since they never had to pay a friggin’ dime for it.

What really pissed me off the most was the editor of this rag had the audacity to treat me like a shit employee rather than a volunteer. If you’re paying me, then you have a right to be a dick… but if the shit I’m giving you is pretty much charity, shut the fuck up and say thank you, you ungrateful sack of shit.

R.A. Dickey: The Baffler Arrives In Toronto


There was a portion of R.A. Dickey’s book that that I found very amusing. In ‘Wherever I wind up’, Dickey describes a situation where he’s taking a sub to the stadium in Washington to start against the Nationals for the Mets. On the subway moving towards the stadium were countless Nationals fans, unaware they were riding with the guy who was going to take on their team later that day. Dickey describes how he sat there pretending to read a book while listening to the fans talk about him and what they expected to see. One comment he thought was fun was that the paper referred to him as ‘the baffler’ because of the pitch he uses to baffle hitters into striking out, the most underrated pitch in all of baseball.

Monday School: Leviticus is on the house…

 
Welcome back to another session of Monday School!

Still the go to place for your “Rational Corrective To All That Nonsense They Tried To Teach You Yesterday!”

Today’s lesson is an interesting one: Do Christians have the right to complain to someone who may have broken God’s law if they themselves do not follow all the laws correctly themselves?

The inspiration for today’s lesson came to me over the weekend when I read an article online about an incident that occurred last month in North Carolina. After eating lunch, a restaurant owner handed a lesbian couple a letter as they were leaving his establishment. The letter pretty much condemned their behavior as ‘sinful’ as it’s stated in the old testament, and informed them that what they were doing was unnatural.
