Tina and I spent the entire day downtown at a multimedia photo shoot. I’m worn out, logging film and footage.
Simultaneously, I’m catching up on my blog list.
When I stopped by Joe My God, there was a post about FOX News using a three-year old photo of Barack Obama with a Pirate, and explained that Obama had time to sit down with a Pirate and not deal with world affairs.
FOX News is a news embarrassment.
Joe My God posted the below video and wrote:
All morning today Fox News used a 2009 photo to claim that the president met with a pirate yesterday rather than address the Middle East situation with the prime minister of Israel. Obama posed for the photo three years ago as part of a joke sequence for that year’s White House Press Correspondents Dinner, which, of course, was attended by Fox News. Yesterday the Obama campaign tweeted the photo as a “Talk Like A Pirate Day” joke with the caption: “Arrrr You In?” Fox’s story rocketed around the internet courtesy of closeted homosexual Matt Drudge. Fox finally tweeted a “correction” this afternoon.
I somehow missed a sweet tweet from @JoeMyGod. He saw my kvetch about not giving me a link on his blog, and he totally fixed it. JoeMyGod hooked me up with a link with the mention. See this post for reference and this for the hookup.
It’s amazing how atheist prayers are so effective.
And by prayers I mean bitching and moaning.
Thanks, Joe. I’m still a big fan. And I was still a big fan before and after the post.
I stopped by Joe My God today and there were too many items I wanted to post from there. So I’m going to collect them and post them at once.
I hope you don’t mind.
I hope he doesn’t mind either. He’s been known to kick ass … in a good way.
Joe is seriously one of the best blogs out there. So go visit him.
Here’s a funny image.
And then another funny church sign:
Be sure to check out this great video: The GOP Vagina Rules:
And this quote from Barack Obama:
“I mean has anybody been watching the debates lately? You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change. It’s true. You’ve got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have healthcare. And booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay. That’s not reflective of who we are.” – Barack Obama, speaking at a Democratic fundraiser yesterday.
And finally go check out this story about NYC Cops pepper spraying street protestors and arresting over 100.
“BAM! … We’re sending you out … with an awkward, self-induced Turret Syndrome! Praise, Jesus!”
This video of a Canadian pastor named Todd Bentley will blow your mind. Pastor Todd Bentley is founder of the dominionist group Joel’s Army, according to Joe My God, “BFF of anti-gay freak show Lou Engle.”
Bentley is traveling the country filling baseball stadiums and other large venues with other pastors dying to learn Bentley’s tattoo’d and pierced message of the hip, cool Jesus.
Get a load of this video:

Todd Bentley has a long night ahead of him, resurrecting the dead, healing the blind, and exploding cancerous tumors. Since April 3, the 32-year-old, heavily tattooed, body-pierced, shaved-head Canadian preacher has been leading a continuous “supernatural healing revival” in central Florida. To contain the 10,000-plus crowds flocking from around the globe, Bentley has rented baseball stadiums, arenas and airport hangars at a cost of up to $15,000 a day. Many in attendance are church pastors themselves who believe Bentley to be a prophet and don’t bat an eye when he tells them he’s seen King David and spoken with the Apostle Paul in heaven. “He was looking very Jewish,” Bentley notes. Tattooed across his sternum are military dog tags that read “Joel’s Army.” They’re evidence of Bentley’s generalship in a rapidly growing apocalyptic movement that’s gone largely unnoticed by watchdogs of the theocratic right. According to Bentley and a handful of other “hyper-charismatic” preachers advancing the same agenda, Joel’s Army is prophesied to become an Armageddon-ready military force of young people with a divine mandate to physically impose Christian “dominion” on non-believers.
I love the blog Joe.My.God. You should read it.
He posted this follow up to the video I really liked featuring the tea-bagging crazies. He said:
Here’s more from Whitestock 2010, courtesy of intrepid New Left Media reporter Chase Whiteside, who released this clip in response to Tea Party claims that his first clip was “selectively edited” to show that teabaggers are idiots.
Take a look:

- Hemant Mehta’s quick posting and story about this Joe My God posting is pretty funny. Oddly enough, while I couldn’t draw a vagina to save my life, I drew a pretty healthy amount of boobies, back in the day. Read here.
