I’m actually baffled that Donald Sterling was banned for life

Here are the facts: Donald Sterling is a douche. Donald Sterling has been a douche for a long time. Donald Sterling has now been banned for life and is likely to be force to sell his property because he’s a douche and other people don’t like it.

But a lot of people don’t understand the pure hypocrisy of the situation.

Sterling, a married man, was ratted out by his gold digging girlfriend known as V. Stiviano because he didn’t want her posting pictures with black people on Instagram.

In fairness, Sterling has been a known racist for pretty much as long as he’s been around. However, why is it that no one has ripped on Stiviano. Has our culture really grown so callous to sex that no one is going to say anything about the fact that the person who blew the whistle (and other things) had been screwing a married guy?

So the guy doesn’t like black people. Larry Johnson apparently doesn’t like white people, but no one banned him for life. Sterling is unfaithful to his wife, but the chick who recorded the conversation was helping him be unfaithful.

No one is innocent here.

Sarah Palin shows what’s wrong with Christian Americans and Republicans in one statement

If you didn’t already know it, Sarah Palin is kind of an idiot. But she proved that even further when she spoke at the NRA’s rally over the weekend.

[In full disclosure, I’m a heavy gun rights advocate and used to be a member of the NRA. That was before I realized they were really more into selling out for a couple of okay things instead of having any kind of integrity in their stances.]

After Palin said that good ol’ ‘Merica needs to be the “fear of God” into terrorists, she said that if she were in charge, everyone would know that “waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

That statement is just how much social religion has turned what used to be theologically awesome Christianity (see: Puritanism) into moralistic bullshit deism. It must be called such strong words because it’s such an offense to what she claims to represent.

When she says we need to put the “fear of God” into terrorists, she really means the “fear of ‘Merica,” because she’s bitten hook, line and sinker into the cult of ‘Merican idolatry.

Tack on a dispensationalist Star of David, and you don’t even know what team she’s on anymore.

That’s further evidenced by her desire to baptize terrorists via waterboarding. Who needs Jesus when you can kill those walking blasphemies?

Granted, I used to buy into the whole “kill ’em all and let God sort ’em out” mindset. And there’s definitely room killing a whole lot of them, especially if they’re actively attempting to kill us (Note: not with drones that kill innocents and not with undeclared pseudo-wars), but they’re still sinful humans in need of grace.

What Palin’s statement ultimately says is that she and we are inherently better than those Muhammad worshiping bastards, so let’s just send ’em on to hell. She has no understanding that she deserves to burn eternally just as much as they do.

I’m not getting all hippie pacifist here, because I believe there’s an appropriate time for killing people in defense, but isn’t this exactly the opposite of what Jesus meant when he told us to love and pray for our enemies? I’m pretty sure it is. I’m pretty we should be more eager to send missionaries and Bibles than cruise missiles and tanks to the Middle East. Obviously, that would mean we have to take the Gospel seriously.

“Sarah, you might want to read this sometime.”

Palin and most of ‘Merica obviously don’t care about actual baptism by water and Spirit; maybe that’s why so many people are hostile toward American Christianity. We’re more concerned with people acting nice than about the condition of their souls.

:Let’s hope she’s never in charge.

Everyone in the Bundy Ranch dilemma is wrong

Everyone in the country got all riled up last week over Clive Bundy, a Nevada cattle rancher who was being “pushed around” by the Bureau of Land Management until an armed militia group showed up and caused the BLM to leave.

What nobody tells you is that literally everyone in the situation is wrong. Let me explain.

For one, the BLM’s story at first was that they were charging Bundy a fee to use federally owned land. That’s fine. It’s their land. The stupidity over the land lies in that the Center for Biological Diversity is suing to protect an endangered tortoise.

“It’s cool. I wear all the protection I need.”

The other nugget of douchery by the government is that Harry Reid is partnering with a Chinese corporation in an attempt to takeover the land and use it for a solar farm. It’s also rife with reports of nepotism.

The government has also used a lot of intimidation and such, which isn’t exactly nice.

But Bundy has been a total asshole.

Reports are that Bundy stopped paying his range fees in 1993, citing that his family had been using that land for over 100 years, so he shouldn’t have to pay like everyone else. It should be an easy process.

Of course, it’s not that simple for Bundy, who comes from a long line of Mormons. Mormons are kind of notorious for basically saying they can do anything and the government can’t do anything about it. They’re actually kind of famous for being involved in scandals and for having some seriously jacked up theology (hint: They’re not Christians.).

Seriously. THEY HAVE MAGIC UNDERWEAR.

Here’s the issue: It’s not Bundy’s family’s land.

If someone owns land, they can do whatever they want with it. The government apparently owns this land, so they can charge people to use it. If you don’t pay, then you don’t get to use it.

This is perfectly analogous to me trying to live in a house and not trying to pay rent, because my family used to live in the house and didn’t pay rent. It’s not my house, so the landlord can rightfully kick me out.

But Bundy’s a Mormon, who also happens to be on Social Security and Medicare, so all you taxpayers can figure out where to stick it.
