"And We Bessech Thee, Oh Lord, To Give This President The Courage to Kill Muslims And Gays For They Are Evildoers. Amen!"

Oh, But Lord, I Personally Am
A Hater Of Muslims Or Gays!
(No one could EVER pin those stupid phobia names on ME!)

I realize that Obama is trying desperately to reach out to everyone in the country. Unfortunately, that includes Christofascists. And the emerging Christofascist of the day is none other than Rick Warren.

(From Box Turtle Bulletin)

The New York Times’ Katharine Seelye is reporting that Rick Warren, the pastor at Saddleback Church, has been chosen by President-elect Barack Obama to deliver the invocation at the inaugural ceremony.

This is the same Rick Warren who recently said that the relationships of his “many gay friends” are no different from child rape, incest or polygamy. He also jumped on the paranoia bandwagon surrounding same-sex marriage by falsely claiming that Prop 8’s failure somehow would have overturned the Constitution’s First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and religion. (It can’t. No law or state constitution can.).

Warren on gays:

… Most people, you know… I have many gay friends, I’ve eaten dinner in gay homes, no church has probably done more for people with AIDS than Saddleback Church. Kay and I have given millions of dollars out of “A Purpose-Driven Life” helping people who got AIDS through gay relationships. So they can’t accuse me of homophobia. I just don’t believe in the re-definition of marriage.

Hmmm. I think he's lying.

"Shock! Shock! Shock! You just called the country's most influential 'Man of God' a Liar!"

Yeah, so?

Let's look at the statements a little bit closer: "I have many gay friends." After he compares you to a child rapist would YOU be friends with Rick Warren? " church has probably done more for people with AIDS than Saddleback Church." It's a pity all the people who can attest to that live in Africa. "...people who got AIDS through gay relationships." Meaning: "gay relationships cause AIDS."

Like the true Christofascist he is, Warren lies like a pro.

Just a thought.

From 4,000 Sqaure Feet of Horse Manure to 12,000 Sqaure Feet of Opulence!

From Luxury and Opulence to Texas Cowboy Down-home AND BACK AGAIN!

$3 Million My Ass!

The exclusive Preston Hollow neighborhood is where former President George W. Bush (sorry, but I can't wait!) will supposedly be residing after his disastrous tenure in office (couldn't wait to say that, either!). I say "supposedly" because I have serious doubts about what functions this "estate" will perform. Will it truly be a home for the Bushes or is it really a rouse?

The first "pictures" of the estate, if they were true, showed a one-level suburban home not quite worth the first estimate of $2 million. The estate shown here looks the opposite: huge to the point of being a steal for the last estimate, $3 million. The main house looks to be at least 10-12,000 square feet. There is a forecourt with a reflecting pool, stables, separate pool area with cabana and what looks like an older (but still very large) house, presumably guest or staff quarters. It sits on 4 acres of prime Dallas real estate and its neighbors are T. Boone Pickens and Ross Perot.

Dallas' Preston Hollow is also newsworthy for a bit of racial discrimination


In 2006, Preston Hollow Elementary School achieved notoriety after a lawsuit claiming the school's class-assignment policies violated the 1952 Supreme Court Brown v. Board of Education decision. Judge Sam Lindsay ruled in November that the school's practices were not legal because they attempted to keep white students together even if minority students had to be placed in inappropriate courses.

A close look at Preston Hollow real estate makes you wonder how the Bushes could have gotten their 4-acre, 8 bedroom, 12,000 sf. estate for less than $10 million. The top price for a home in Preston Hollow? A mere $45 million.

And remember: it's where the Bushes lived BEFORE he tried to channel Will Rogers! And before he got snubbed by the NAACP!

Something's afoot! And it's not just arrogant stupidity!

Just a thought.
