I always have to heave a sigh and roll my eyes whenever self-proclaimed Christians such as Bachmann indignantly declare that gay marriage defies “the word of God”. This argument is both cowardly and disingenuous — using biased interpretations of cherry-picked biblical passages to justify their brand of social intolerance and religious self-righteousness.

Socially-regressive Christian conservatives will always contend that homosexuality is a choice. Rational discussion is pointless. They HAVE to maintain this point of view, because the alternative — the idea that homosexuality is a congenital, perhaps even genetically-based behavior — would mean that God made gays the way they are. Which would imply that to condemn homosexuality would be to condemn God’s will.
It’s enough to make their narrow-minded heads explode.

Fortunately, most Americans do not adhere to the fundamental concept of God as a meddling, micromanaging manipulator who chooses sides in politics, for they recognize that this notion is as absurd as the claim that God enables a specific athletic team to win a championship.

Yet another reason why religious dogma and public policy make poor bedfellows.

Who cares?

Is the ONLY answer a smart person should give when asked about any of the following:

Michelle Bachmann
Sarah Palin
Pam Geller
Brian Fischer
Louie Gohmert
Rush Limbaugh
Glen Beck
(Fuck this… I could type for the next two hours and not run out of names)

Yay, for Ms. Pelosi! It’s way past the time for someone to have the guts to relegate Bachmann’s comments where they have always belonged—in the trash bin.

Except for the Yankees. God REALLY REALLY hates the Yankees.
