Pope excommunicates Italian Mafia members

This is one of those “well, *duh*” things, but from both directions. Mafioso and others who live on murder and crime and such would seem to be obvious subjects of excommunication. At the same time, these sort of people don’t really seem all that tolerant of people who tell them things they don’t want to hear and can get a touch violent about such things.

Am I correct in recalling a *threat* by either a Pope or a Bishop or some such to excommunicate politicians who vote to keep abortion legal?  Now *that* would be entertaining. Would’ve been entertaining to see U-Boat Commander Teddy Kennedy excommunicated while he was still in office.

And here we have a dumbass who thinks that if evolution is real, rape is ok:

I know that some people *believe* because they truly feel it. And some people use their belief to make their lives, and the lives of others, better. But then there are freaks like this. I don’t know if he truly believes in God or not; but if he does I kinda hope he continues to, because if he truly believes what he says, then he’s a hairs-breadth from a killing spree and fear of eternal damnation is the only thing holding him back.

On the other hand, if he’s a true believer, I really hope he doesn’t spend much time reading the Old Testament. It’ll give him ideas he shouldn’t have. Like, say… Judges 5:30, and Judges 21:10-24, and Numbers 31:7-18, and Deuteronomy 20:10-14, and Deuteronomy 21:10-14, and Deuteronomy 22:28-29, and Exodus 21:7-11, and Zechariah 14:1-2, and…

 

 

I don’t really know what to make of the new SyFy series “Dominion” that starts in a week or so, but ya gotta love the poster:

The claim is made that the maker of the infamous “Innocence of Muslims” video that ticked off the Islamic world – and was incorrectly blamed for the jihadist attack on the US consulate in Benghazi – is not a Coptic Christian as has been long reported, but instead is a self-professed Muslim:

Filmmaker ‘Behind The Benghazi Attack’ Found To Be A CONFIRMED MUSLIM Agent Who Worked With US Government

Take it with a grain of salt. The site seems kinda… well, let’s go with “slanted,” and the evidence slim, especially with the claim that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula made the film in order to rile up the Muslim world in sort of a “false flag” operation to let the Obama regime make criticism of Islam a crime.

Can I see Obama *wanting* to pull a scheme like this? Maybe. But as the last five years have shown, the guy’s just not *competent* enough to get even this far.

“Noah” was a very silly movie. It did not follow the Biblical account (or at least, it took a hell of a lot of liberties with it), nor did it turn the fantastical tale into a realistic story (such as was done with “King Arthur” a few years back). So, it kinda grated on both ends of the issue, which is rarely a success.

One of the scenes that I did quite like was when Noah describes the creation of the universe. Again it meddles with the Biblical account (it actually has the sun created *before* the plants… I know, that’s just nutty), but it does so in a way that jives with the scientific account. I thought it was really quite impressive, and shot in a  unique way… a long series of still images strung together to make a sort of jerky stop-motion video. Some of the shots are really quite beautiful.

So, I happened across this headline (after reading THIS authoritarian nightmare story):

Belgium bans performance labeled ‘anti-Semitic hatefest’

A lot of this story seems to be the sort of anti-sensical madness that could only come from the region that gave the world “Metal Hurlant…” you know, flashy gibberish that simply makes no sense whatsoever.

Let me see if I got this right… Dieudonne M’bala M’bala is, apparently a French guy with a French mother and Cameroonian father, and who became a stand up comic. OK so far. Made a name for himself doing gags with a Jewish comic.  Sure. Ran against the “National Front” party (which he saw as racist) in elections of ’97 and ’01. Fine. He begins littering his comedy routines with anti-Jewish stuff.  Umm. Then he becomes a friend and political ally of Jean Marie Le Pen, head of the National Front party. Errr…  And he hangs around with Holocaust deniers and demonstrates with Islamists. And he apparently invented a gesture that is considered explicitly anti-Semitic, and which appears to be a modifed “Nazi salute”. Buh? And now he’s associated with a group of Belgian nationalists.

This is him:

So… if you’re in America or western Europe and you’re getting your knickers in a knot over Ukrainian neo-Nazis, here’s something new to get in a cold sweat over. Not only neo-Nazis, but weird-ass alternate reality neo-Nazis. Who are apparently quite popular.

If I didn’t know better, I’d think that this was some sort of reeeeaaaaaalllllly long-form gag. But everythign seems to indicate that the anti-immigrant racists of France have fallen in love with the son of an African, who has taken up their cause.

Buh.

Now it can be told.

So, in 2012 Oklahoma State Representative Mike Ritze paid (with his own money) to have a “Ten Commandments” graven image made. Since it was privately funded, it was decreed that, if donated, it could be plopped down on government property, specifically outside the state Capitol.

Well, shoot, thought a group of Satanists, that reasoning works for us, too!

An Indigogo campaign was set up, hoping to score 20 grand to have a statue of Baphomet made. It got almost 30 large. The statue nears completion, and will soon be cast in bronze

Ha!

Here’s the First Look at the New Satanic Monument Being Built for Oklahoma’s Statehouse

The best line in the piece? On the subject of the eventual bronze statue being physically attacked once set up on the Capitol grounds, the lead Satanist:

“wouldn’t expect these outraged and nearly insensible reactionaries to actually know how to assault a bronze monument without severely hurting themselves in the process.”

They’re making molds and getting it insured, so that, like Hydra or Sammael, if one gets destroyed, two more will rise in its place.

Saudi Arabia criticises Norway over human rights record

The Saudis big beef with Norway? They haven’t made it a crime to criticize religion, and Mohammad in particular. Norwegian Foreign Minister Børge Brende is quoted:

“It is a paradox that countries which do not support fundamental human rights have influence on the council, but that is the United Nations.”

It is long since past time that the whole idea of the United Nations be rethought. Rather than a collection of *every* nation, no matter how backwards, barbaric or just plain stupid and evil, getting together with everyone having a vote, what the western world should instead focus on are allegiances such as NATO. Exclusionary groups that choose to allow counties in based not on mere existence, but on a  shared set of values. And making it illegal to criticize some centuries-dead phoney should be a cause for exclusion.

Leave the UN as a place where combatants can come together to negotiate, and otherwise get rid of it as a bad idea.
