If this guy doesn’t become our second African-American president, something is wrong.

I can hear many responses to this, but one would be, “It is ‘loving’ to tell someone they are hell bound.”

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

 

 

I’m too afraid to “like” this on Facebook

Two children’s book characters are cleaning chocolate off the floor and the caption reads, “This is the last time we try anal.”

Fucking Joanne Casey. She posted the above on her facebook version of “I have seen the whole of the internet” and i laughed so hard I spit popcorn everywhere.

I couldn’t bring myself to like it, because I was worried a family member would see that on their feed.

It is possibly the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time.

A LONG time.

I love it on so many levels.

You’re welcome.

it’s because Obama’s president and there’s no prayer in schools

Show me a stinking birth certificate on this woman who is claiming to be born on US soil!

HONK.

Check out this awesome display of American racism. It’s amazing.

By the way, if the head deity is in charge, if he is in complete control, why would you oppose his power of decision like that?

Tina and I are in production again all day today.

Yesterday went really well. I’ve had to be creative with setting up interviews in very similar spots in the same small area without making it look too similar.

It’s not easy.

Over the weekend, my parents were in town. We hosted 12 total people for dinner on Saturday night. Michael and Jason stopped by for dinner on Sunday.

It was somewhat laid-back visit, and they were gone again by 3:15 a.m. on Monday morning.

In the meantime, here’s an interesting response to Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke debacle, that I’d like to respond to as well.

Also of note from TYWKIWDBI: Donut-flavored beer !!

It’s what’s for breakfast!

 

18. Epic Rap Battles: Steve Jobs vs Bill Gates

In the future, debates between Sam Harris and Dinesh D’Souza will take the form of a rap battle.

The guy who plays Steve Jobs, Nice Peter, is a personal friend of mine. Yeah, I’m a name dropper.

These videos are more popular than Jesus.

I kid you not. I met some of young fans at a concert I shot, and they thank Nice Peter for giving them a reason to live.

I don’t get it either.

10. What the funny kids are posting

Another regular post I lean on is called, “What the funny kids are posting.” I repost some jokes and memes from some of my favorite funny sites, including Joanne Casey’s I have seen the whole of the Internet and Tastefully Offensive.


Only two things are necessary to keep a redhead happy. One is to let her think she is having her own way, and the other is to let her have it. 

I used the “#” in front of everything before twitter

Facebook update reads, “Most people don’t realize this … but you can eat organic, gluten-free foods without telling everyone about it. 

Man survives a grizzly bear attack, using just a small caliber Beretta pistol.

See you next Tuesday, Pastor DL Foster


Text from “ex-gay” Pastor DL Foster reads, “The supernatural, radical, wonder working blood of Jesus is cleansing someone right now from #masturbation addiction in Jesus name #freedom.”

Just so you know, if you have a natural curiosity to touch yourself, this is evil and it needs twitter to intervene with the divine to stop it.

Go figure.

Whilst tugging on my hair ends … I ask you … what are you talking about?

There’s a believing friend of mine who posted thrice on Facebook this morning and I wanted to comment on all the updates.

The kicker is that he follows this blog on Twitter, so this might not end well.

The first read:

Avoid profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith.#truth

If you remove the Yoda-inspired sentence construction and attempts at lofty language, the update reads,

“Avoid non-religious and foolish babblings, and avoid disagreeing with — or resisting — so-called science, deliberately made to deceive, which some believers who have made the error of accepting instead of complete confidence in something unseen based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.”

Did you know science was deliberately made to deceive? The same discipline that brought about a computer for this guy to write on. The same discipline came up with vaccinations and organ transplants. The same branch of knowledge that allows people to have more healthy, happy babies and have long productive lives with them is the same ideology that should be avoided, for the sake of “faith” which is defined as “having complete confidence in something unseen based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.”

This update, craftily constructed to appear intelligent, is nothing more than a reminder to believers to avoid “science” for the sake of things unseen.

The guy is a modern day Paul.

What he misses is that “complete confidence” fits into the definition of vanity, which is oppositional to the definition of profanity (something not sacred or not-religious). And when faith — something you must be confident in without proof — goes head to head with science, which is loaded with evidence, the only ammunition a believer has against it, is determination to oppose it.

I’ll gladly take science, in opposition to the idiocy of accepting that which cannot be proven or seen.

Another update read (are you ready?): 

No man looks at circumstances or relies on his feelings if he believes. Never give way to human opinions. #Jesusaiditbelieveit

Firstly, Jesus never said anything in the sentence above. That makes saying it was Jesus who said it, well, a lie.

Secondly, EVERY MAN looks at circumstances. At least, every man I know who is not in jail. And even that’s up for grabs. But you have to look at the circumstances. Otherwise, you’re a fucking idiot.

Thirdly, no man relies on his feelings if he believes? This is a HUGE issue I have with the church. For one, having the feeling that no man relies on feelings is reliance on feelings.

For two, people are attracted to other people with feelings, because expressing empathy and vulnerability are human traits that bring us together. Lack of empathy tears relationships apart.

But this is my “human opinion” and you should never give way to it.

And finally, the guy posted: 

For men shall be lovers of themselves…ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3 #continueintruth

Wait, what?

Didn’t this dude write, “Avoid profane and vain babblings”?

Be lovers of themselves? Does that mean you should kiss yourself in the mirror while masturbating?

And then he writes, men should be always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

I agree that you should always be open to the possibility of being wrong.

But, let me repeat that: “Never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

Man, I’m confused. You should love yourself. You should always be learning. But you should have faith, which is conclusions based on nothing but air.

It’s no wonder believers are a mass collection of confused, splintered people, fumbling around for acceptance.

Hey believers, here’s a hot tip. Be plain in speech. Make sense of your senses. Because nothing written in the above updates makes sense.

Also, accept all those words Jesus says about not being accepted. Get rid of everything scientific in your life (computers, cars, technology, etc) and see how long you guys have butts in pews.

Oh, I forgot, it’s too convenient to have all those things. Why would god put all these things, deceitful or not, in your way?

You should probably ask him.

Oh, wait, you can’t.

Uh oh: blogs to replace resumés … what’s going to replace fiancés?

So the New York Times says that eventually blogs, tumblrs and twitter accounts could replace your need for that old raggedy resumé.

That means, if this economy ever pushed me out of my place as a photographer slash entrepreneur and I had to go back for a real job, Le Café Witteveen might be my resumé.

Wow.

I might actually have to dumb some of my crass shit down so that I can get to the level of the average American …

If you know what I mean.

Honks-a-donk-a-licious.

 

Just the stats, ma’am … just the stats

Our culture is mind boggling sometimes.

Tweet from @thinkprogress says:

FACT: There were more tweets per second following Tim Tebow’s game-winning touchdown pass (9,420) than Osama bin Laden’s death (5,106).

Wouldn’t you know that some liberal, fucking organization would find a “420” in the numbers and post it to their liberal twitter account.

Honk.
