I hate Glen Beck. Hate him, hate him, hate him.

No, there is too much. Let me sum up:

I hate Glen Beck. Hate him, hate him, hate him. He has opinions that are different than mine and focuses on inconvenient facts I want to ignore and pretend don't exist. He's evil because he has different opinions than my enlightened view of the world. Heed my smug, self-righteous condemnation of those who speak truth to liberal power! [Commentators: Oh, how wise and wonderful of an enlightened white woman you are. We hate Beck too! Never mind we only know what Media Matters tells us about him! Fie on those facts of his!]

(I'd say Margaret should read this post at T&S, but she's too far gone. She's just condemning people straight to hell, rather than expressing concern for Beck's soul - the problems Nate Oman discusses would be a step up for her. Get over yourself, MJBY).

{Disclaimer: I never watch Beck. But based on who hates him, he must be pretty awesome. And regardless of what MJBY may do to discount it, Rev. Wright said a lot of damnable things. Funny - if Beck were to say the same things, that's all she'd talk about and insist it was part of a conservative pathology. But when it's someone connected to our Messiah-President, she insists its not that big of a deal}

I see your Godwin's law and raise you two other brutal dictators

Uhm, yeah, John Mansfield. Because vaguely acknowledging a basic fact of life (everyone dies at some point - well, I'm not too sure about the status of translated beings, but they're statistically insignificant) is similar to the slaughter of millions.

Yes, your first sentence acknowledges this, but the difference is one of kind, not degree, like you seem to think.

Gee whiz, you almost make the liberals over at BCC look reasonable. Well, that's impossible, but you're sure trying to do it anyway.

Well, he would know.

Brad, talking about what he knows best.

I mean, come on - it's been obvious to most of us for the last few years. The funny thing is, his "general theory of Apostasy" is an attempt to legitimize specific apostasy in the case of Brad. Once you get to the end, you realize he's basically saying anytime priesthood leaders criticize him, they're "abusive."

Trust us Brad, you're not fooling anyone. Your general theory sounds more like a lame attempt to de-legitimize valid criticism of your way too unorthodox beliefs before it even starts. Your attempt to frame it with love and charity at the end falls a bit too flat, since it's clear you're more concerned with those who criticize you, and I doubt you're going to stop propagating your apostasy anytime soon.

No one is righteous, but precious few drug little girls in order to [you know]

See, when Alma told his son that some sins are worse than others, and then condemned his son for sexual sins - well, it's a good thing that Alma's son wasn't matt b., or Alma may have gotten intellectually smacked down with an erudite version of "Well, you're a sinner too, dad. So don't judge me, man."

Matt b. in a rather long post at Juvey Hall. It takes him FOREVER to get to the point at the end:
But on the flip side, there’s a caution here for the rest of us as well; those of us who see in Polanski the sinner that we are not, those of us who equate religion with law and judge juridical faultlessness to be unblemished righteousness. Polanski’s demons rage inside each one of us,

Perhaps matt b. is hoping we won't notice what he just said.

While there's a germ of truth in this (we all have sinful desires) - frankly, Polanski's demons do not rage inside us. Matt b. seems to think having the temptation to tell a little white lie is the same as - well, this is a family blog. You can google what Polanski did if you must.

So, going by what matt b. argues, every time you break the speed limit, you're just as bad as Polanski. Well, no wonder everyone in Babylon is defending him. And Alma was wrong to do all that preaching repentance - he should have been more like matt b. and spent time searching his own soul to realize the same demons existed inside him. In fact, all the prophets and apostles should do the same. Then we can stop worrying about them telling us to improve.

Margaret Blair Young, all class

MBY bears testimony that the proof of God's existence is that Boyd K. Packer will not be the next prophet.

Heck, and it takes a non-Mormon to call her on it.

God is in charge apparently only when he does what MBY wants.

That is not dead which can eternal lie

I thought jr. ganymede's Lovecraft fetish was just a mildly amusing affectation. But then I realized Adam really is Cthulhu (and jr. ganymede is R'lyeh), with the power to make sure topics that should be dead and buried rise from the ocean of the internet and devour those who happen to be passing by in cyberspace.

Soon, we will all be driven mad by the comments! the comments! - the stygian comments of eldritch horrors. Soon we shall all surf out to that brooding blog on the net and comment through black abysses to Cyclopean and many-columned jr. ganymede, and in that lair of the Deep Ones we shall dwell amidst wonder and glory for ever.
