About the video:

This video is a basic overview of U.S. imperialism toward Iran that began at the behest of the British Government and big oil interests including British Petroleum also recently known as BP.

The United States’ own CIA led it’s first coup to overthrow a foreign leader against Mohammad Mosaddegh in 1953, The U.S. has suffered “Blowback: ever since, all the while the supposed leaders in Washington continue to demonize Iran’s leaders on flimsy grounds as more pretense to continued Middle East war and occupation by the U.S.

Chances are, you’ve already seen this one

This cool video of a guy speaking poem about religion versus Jesus is making the rounds.

And it’s cool. I agree. It’s slick.

And it exposes a lot of complaints many people have for religious folks. And it had me for a while. Well, until it goes into the message of Jesus.

When will that message finally be seen as the opposite of the way believers make it out to sound? It’s not that great. It’s not spectacular. It’s kind of sick.

You know, if I don’t think he’s there, then I’m out. Club rules.

And … the whole, “Let’s call it something other than religion movement” is already old.

Just call it what it is, if you’re in the in group, you get eternal reward. If not, no biggie. Even if you think I’m going to hell, revel in your prize and move on.

Jesus needs newer PR than this video.

Christian school sign encourages douchebaggary

Covenant Christian School sign reads, “Tebowing Encouraged Here.”

In their defense, they probably don’t have much else to do around there. Studying isn’t encouraged. Mimicking overpaid athletes, though, that’s worthwhile.

Meanwhile starving dying children with AIDS are praising Allah that Tebow’s prayers for touchdowns are getting answered.
