Trick or Treat! Your Mom's a Whore!

Two wonderful boys I know were working Trick or Treat in the West Boulevard area. And guess what shows up in their treat bag when they get home:



Neat little business cards. Of course with the standard BS on the flip: Get the (half) truth. Know the fact(oids)! Hear the stories (we want you to hear)!

This is Halloween. This is supposed to be fun for kids. But here these jerks are, using, using, USING the kids they are supposed to care about. (And, heck don't many of them condemn Halloween as satanic anyway?) So people that don't know better will vote yes on six and, while they are there, ignorantly vote in more Republican lawmakers that will continue to short change their, and other people's -- especially Native people's -- children. Oh I forgot their children are set--they are staying home or headed to good Christian schools where they won't have to mingle with the great unwashed caste that our society continues to short-change.

Good Lord. Why they were at it, why didn't they hand out little plastic (or chocolate) fetuses too?

This is outrageous.

Guess what, you freedom-hating troglodytes who don't trust women with their own most difficult decisions. You will lose in the end. And you have already lost in more ways than one, you are losing the hearts and minds battle by your singular determination to get your way, parading your ignorance and arrogance as if were something to be proud of, even something Christian, now THAT'S irony.

You are down by ten points and, you know, you are doing a lot to widen the spread.

But let's not take it for granted.

Get Out The Vote * Get Out The Vote * Get Out The Vote

    Mr. Price,

    I?ll agree with you on not handing out the business cards to children.

    I disagree with your name calling and categorizing of others who disagree with you.

  2. Anonymous,

    If you disagree so much, then grow a spine and sign your name to that which you write.

    I am sick and tired of these sanctimonious so-called christians. I am tired of finding right-winged "christian" literature on my car telling me that I need to find Christ, and that God is as mad as hell, as if they know the first thing about me. I am tired of these religious zealots dictating to our legislators how I should and should not live, and to do so in the name of God. I am tired of arrogant and ignorant legislation that is hateful, lacking in compassion, judgemental, and treats me and others as if I am a child who does not know how to make responsible choices for myself.

    There's a difference between name calling, and calling a spade a spade. (For instance: troglodyte, n. a person of degraded, primitive, or brutal character; a person unacquainted with affairs of the world. I think this is a pretty fair assesment of these people's character.) I applaud Mr. Price and others like him who are finally calling these people on their lies, their immoral, hurtful, ignorant, arrogant, and primitive behavior, as well as their hatred toward others who don't think and act like them. I am afraid of these people too. And I have to say, given the behavior I have seen from them in recent weeks, I have to wonder if spending an eternity with these people wouldn't have to be the worst kind of hell imaginagle.

    Standing up for something important isn't always easy, and sometimes, it requires saying things that are unsettling and difficult. Thank goodness for people who say it and put their name on it to boot like Mr. Price. Be an anonymous observer if you want, but it you have something important to say, at least have the guts to take ownership of it and sign your name. If you're a "friend," and this is your quiet way of giving friendly advice, then you're really just a coward, and don't know Mr. Price at all.

    Hey Beth,

    Are you venting at me for agreeing with C.P. about the business cards or at my suggestion to tone down the scapegoating or because I didn?t sign my name?

    Re-read what you wrote and tell me why I should sign my name. You aren?t any better than the people you complained about. You say you're scared of them, but look at how you came across. You scare people too.

    The people who are standing up for 6 are doing exactly what you say C.P. is doing. They are saying things you disagree with and to them it requires saying things that are unsettling and difficult for people.

    Standing up for something you believe in, doesn't require name-calling. Two wrongs don't make a right.

    Beth, I don't know C.P. and with your attitude, now I don't want to. This is my second and last post. I won?t stop by again.

    Beth, I?ll say it for you: good riddance to an anonymous poster.

  4. Well, since Anonymous is no longer stopping by or posting (gettin' a little teary), I'm posting this as an answer for those who might be curious as to what I have to say in response anyway.

    First of all, I think I made it pretty clear how I feel about anonymous postings. It's just too easy and cowardly to criticize someone if you don't have to take ownership of your convictions. If you feel stronly enough about something, what difference does it make what I write?

    Secondly, as I said before, there is a difference between name-calling (or scape-goating as anonymous is calling it now) and calling a spade a spade. I'm not making any claims to be better than the people I am complaining about. But I certainly know that I am far different. All I know is that I don't leave nasty, judgemental literature on a strangers' cars. I don't drive past strangers and call them murderers. I don't make threats to people. I don't tell other Christians that they'll have to answer to God. I don't tell other Christians (or anyone, for that matter) that they are going to burn in hell. I don't use my Christian faith as a political tool to dictate to others how they should live.

    For years, Christians like myself have been treated by other "christians" as if we are reprobates. This kind of persecution from members of our own faith is bewildering and hurtful. Those like me have grown weary of such hatred, and suddendly, the right-wing christians are feeling persecuted because WE are no longer willing to be kicked around, and we are tired of watching them kick others around the way they have grown so accustomed. I will continue to love my neighbor, clothe the naked, feed the hungry, help those in need . . . and from time to time, RR, and myself, and others like us, will call "christians" on their lies, their hatred, their scare tactics, their lack of campassion, their blatant discrimination, their greed, their arrogance, and their ignorance. If it scares them, well, gosh, I don't know what to say about that, other than I guess they just aren't used to it. But I refuse to apologize. They scare me, because I would not put anything past any of them. They are they ones who feel justified in ruining a good doctor's name in the name of their cause, bomb clinics in the name of God, killing doctors, and even exploit their own children (how many children and teens were on the YesForLife side of the street?), but they feel justified in doing so because the "ends justify the means." So, I guess they can be afraid of me if they want. I don't know if I should laugh hysterically or feel flattered.

    So, yeah, bye bye, anonymous, even though you aren't reading this since you aren't stopping by again (starting to get more teary now . . .)
