50,000 gamers sign petition for Target to withdraw The Holy Bible from stores in response to the removal of Grand Theft Auto V…except they don’t actually sell it

As stunts go, it wasn’t a bad idea… but if you’re going to demand that a company not sell X because they don’t sell Y, you’d better make sure they actually sell X. otherwise you’ll look kinda stupid.

 

But on the other hand…

2978 results for “bible”

If you’re a “journalist” and you’re going to report that Target doesn’t sell Bibles, maybe you aughtta check and see if they actually sell Bibles. Worse, if you’re Target, maybe you aught to know whether or not you sell Bibles afore you say you don’t.

But on the gripping hand… this is Target Australia, not Target US, so maybe AusTarget doesn’t sell Bibles. Hmmm…

U.K. Security Experts Worried About Terrorist Attack Around Christmas

Counterterrorism officials in the U.S. and the United Kingdom have been quietly discussing an outright ban on hand-carried luggage aboard airplanes for weeks now … discussing whether to require that electronics such as cellphones, iPads and computers be placed in the cargo hold with checked baggage

Neat. Hours and hours and hours crammed into a tiny seat next to smelly strangers, behind some jackhole who slams his seat back int your knees… and no laptop or book or DVD player or such for you. You sit there and stare at that seatback and go slowly insane.

Thanks Surt worshippers. Y’all suck and your goals suck.

Assuming that this analysis is remotely close to accurate, there could be interesting times in Russia.

Is Russia Preparing to Ban Islam?

The argument goes that Russia is working away on banning the hijab because where the hijab goes, sharia law, Muslim supremacism and terrorism go. Further, a ninth century text apparently revered by Sunni Muslims has been banned because it promotes “exclusivity of one of the world’s religions.” And considering that the Koran does as well (and I imagine the Bible does too…), people are wondering how long it’ll be before the Koran is banned in Russia.

I’ll be over here popping some corn.

As part of the beatification process of Unarmed Teenager Mike “let’s try to take a  cops gun” Brown, a few of his supporters wanted to have a fireworks display.

Alleged plot included bombing Arch, killing St. Louis County prosecutor, Ferguson chief

Sources close to the investigation were uncertain whether the men had the capability to carry out the plans, although the two allegedly did buy what they thought was a pipe bomb in an undercover law enforcement sting.

The men wanted to acquire two more bombs, the sources said, but could not afford to do it until one suspect’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer card was replenished.

That’s neat.

Extra points: the two New Black Panther geniuses… one is named Muhammad, the other Ali. Float like a butterfly, sting like a mentally retarded stinkbug what thinks it’s a bee.

In a world full of Surt worshiping wackos, it’s nice to know that so many of them have almost no ability to think strategically.

What’s more: one of ‘em is one of those “sovereign citizen” goobers, and was on the receiving end of a tazer in 2013 when he refused to pay taxes on a purchase he made at a gas station. His reason? Apparently he thinks he’s a “Moorish national” and that that means he has the right to not be taxed.

And in other Incompetency News, there’s THIS.

ISIS supports Ferguson protesters: Islamic militants pledge to send over ‘soldiers that don’t sleep, whose drink is blood, and their play is carnage’

Birmingham-born jihadi Junaid Hussain, 20 – who has adopted the nom de guerre Abu Hussain al-Britani – this morning tweeted a photograph of a hand-written letter urging the Ferguson rioters to ‘reject corrupt man-made laws like democracy’

That’d be fun: actual enemy soldiers on American shores. If the fine folk of Ferguson think they have trouble with the cops *now,* just wait until it’s perfectly legal to carry out summary executions of enemy troops not wearing recognized uniforms.

This time in Oklahoma. But wait! There’s something a little different this time…

Stillwater man killed in near-beheading; murder charge filed

The killer, one Isaiah Marin, 21, hacked the victim, Jacob Crockett, 19, to death with a sword. Why? Because Crocketts practicing of “witchcraft” conflicted with Marin’s Christian beliefs. That whole “shall not suffer a witch to live” thing, I guess.

Nothing quite so spectacular as blending religious zealotry with drug use and batcrap insanity.

Some photos horked offa Facebook of both the victim and perp:

‘Religious zealot’ Christian student ‘decapitated 19-year-old friend because he thought he practiced witchcraft’

Yeah, yeah, yer not supposed to profile people based on their appearance… but neither one of these guys looked like winners in the game of life.

A few days ago, someone drove his car into the “Ten Commandments Monument” unconstitutionally situated on the Oklahoma capitol grounds and done smashed it up real good. The guy did it on purpose and claimed that Satan told him to do it. And thus we got headlines like this from the Christian Examiner:

Satanist attacks Oklahoma City’s 10 Commandments

Yeah, about that…

Man who destroyed Oklahoma 10 Commandments monument was devout Christian

“he would never deface something that meant so much to him. He takes the Ten Commandments very seriously. He has been very Christian his entire adult life.”

According to his mother (audio of interview), the guy had a work injury to his back four years ago and now suffers “breakdowns.” Sounds like possibly pain issues, coupled with pain meds, just drove the feller bonkers. He was apparently wanting to become a pastor. I suspect that this might prove a little bit of a hindrance to that plan.

The graven image was the focal point of a lawsuit trying to remove it from government grounds. The lawsuit was recently tossed out, so the timing seemed interesting to some. Such as…

Atheists Lose Lawsuit Over 10 Commandments Monument… So They Smash it to Rubble

Odd crop of atheists they’re growing these days… athesits who love God, want to become pastors and hear Satan yapping at ‘em.
