It takes a very special kind of stupid to get me to face palm. Usually I just shake my head and walk away knowing I don’t have to go to bed with said Stupid. But right now I’m having a mix of face palm and wanting to pull an Edna Mode and bitch slap someone with a rolled up news paper.
A few years ago now a Mormon friend of mine visited the Americas for the first time. She was from Australia so I tried to show her American past times-baseball games, foot long hot-dogs and museums.
I took her to a Native American museum leaving alone the fact that the artifacts within the museum completely disproved the Book of Mormon and hoped that perhaps she would enjoy sharing the experience of learning about my ancestors.
And today…5 years later…she admits the museum disproved the Book of Mormon. Is she still a Mormon? You betcha.
This, this my friends, this is true stupidity.
When you’re faced with the facts and chose to believe anyway-not only is it a slap in the face to the archaeologists and historians who preserved the artifacts -it is the ultimate in BEING stupid. Choosing to be this stupid is what is stopping human progression.
Honestly, I can’t deal with this level of stupid. I could hang myself with the rope of willful ignorance that binds so many people. I think perhaps I will… Jesus Christ…
What puts you in a rage?
What makes you so mad that your heart rate spikes, you spit and want to get in a good old fashioned fist fight?
For me it’s government debating a VOTE on human rights.
Currently the Illinois Senate is debating if they should pass equal marriage. They are hearing testimony and even allowed a “pastor” to read from the Bible to justify his stance against equal marriage.
News flash: The State Capital Building is not a church. The US has separation of Church and State and the fun thing about human rights is YOU DON’T VOTE for them-They are automatic!
Churches in the US are trying to justify their bigotry towards homosexuals by saying that equal marriage would impede their religious freedoms. When was the last time a church was forced to marry anyone? I know, personally, of pastors who refused to marry a couple because they got pregnant outside of wedlock, they lived together before they were married and refused to marry a couple because they were of 2 different “races.” (Side note, race doesn’t actually exist. The concept, like religion, is man-made.)
What is this game of voting on human rights? It seems to me that we’re wasting an awful lot of tax dollars on stupid arguments that have nothing to do with anything other than giving a lobbyist a pay check for a minute.
This-the debate over basic human rights, is what puts me into a rage. How stupid do you have to be to not understand that human rights are fundamental? Do you come by the stupidity naturally or did you take a class?
If you deny rights to others you do not deserve them for yourself. Period.

Yes I actually said this out of frustration while trying to figure out the DVD player…
“Stupidity—The top of the list for Satanic Sins. The Cardinal Sin of Satanism. It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity. It depends on people going along with whatever they are told. The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only acceptable but laudable. Satanists must learn to see through the tricks and cannot afford to be stupid.” ― Anton LaVey
Ok, but can we just apply this for everyone and not just to those who think they are better than everyone else just because they actually take the time to think things out?
