Steve Evans is totally in touch with reality.

Steve Evans is bold, forthright, and honest.  He isn't afraid to tell the truth - a truth that accurately reflects the realness of real reality.

Here, he confidently and accurately states that
anyone who thinks this post is about Cleon Skousen . . . is wrong. In fact, I feel so strongly about my intuition in this respect that I can say with warmth in my heart that whomever didn’t see this from the get-go is probably a poor reader, and possibly myopic
 I mean, it's not like the post's first paragraph ends like this:
I, on the other hand, think Skousen was crazy
 or that the entire post is basically dedicated to proving Skousen wrong.  I mean, if that was all true, Steve would be in denial of reality.  But he's such a truth seeker and truth teller, he knows what's really up.  Good job Steve.  Glad to have you around to keep us in the strait and narrow jacket.

I totally agree with MCQ

MCQ is right.  Labels are terrible things that only serve to divide.  They are too callously tossed about.  It would be wrong to go around labeling people with the labels of "luddite" or "bigot" just because they disagree with you.

Good on you MCQ, good on you.

(for the lazy, there are many comments by MCQ on those threads, you have to read them all to get the full gist of just how awesome and non-judgmental MCQ is - just keep scrolling down).

The *Real* 14 commandments of the 'Nacle

These make some attempt at lame snark, but really, it's just navel gazing and an attempt to make everyone in the 'Nacle feel good about themselves. Here's what the list, if it was interested in being honest, would actually say:

First: Steve Evans is your true God.

Second: Whoever gets the last comment, wins.

Third: Whatever was said last week or even last year doesn't matter, if it makes us look like hypocrites. That only matters if we can link to it in a positive way.

Fourth: The prophet leads the church astray.

Fifth: Post writers/permabloggers are not required to have any particular credentials, training, or authority in order to call the church to repentance.

Sixth: The commenter does not have to say “This is just my opinion” because they don't believe in opinions. Everything they write is pure facts. If you disagree, you are an idiot.

Seventh: Whether you need to know it, or want to know it, or wish you’d never heard it, you can find someone on the bloggernacle using it to attack Boyd K. Packer.

Eighth: The feminism of the bloggernacle is not limited by reality.

Ninth: The bloggernacle is mainly a flame war.

Tenth: The blogger may be involved in your local congregation. If so, find a different ward.

Eleventh: The two groups who have the most difficulty following the prophet are the proud who are on the bloggernacle and the proud who are also on the bloggernacle.

Twelfth: The bloggernacle is basically the popular, cool kids clique you hated so much but secretly wanted to be a part of in High School.

Thirteenth: Margaret B. Young is your goddess - no ill speaking allowed - you must only prostrate yourself at her feet and beg forgiveness from the Great White One for your cultural sins.

Fourteenth: Steve Evans will ban your buttocks.

My testifying ignomy!

Julie inspired me to post my testimony!  (Though, really, Julie - that's quite insensitive to refer to someone named "Apame" as an "Ape."  You may think it's a clever play on her name, but it's rather rude).

So, as  Margaret Blair Young'un (motto: "More compassion from thee, but not from me") calls it, here's my "brutally honest testimony":

I believe President Packer is a true and inspired servant of God, and the rest of y'all can suck it.

Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished

Please, by all means.  No one is stopping y'all.  Really, this is the best idea yet in the 'Nacle.  I wouldn't mind if the whole of BiCuriousCrazies, Tea&eStuaries, and Mental Mormons decided to up and join this other denomination.  You have my blessing.  Have fun!

Apparently, no one commenting

So, they're so passionate for moderation, them there Jon Stewart fans that they're

1.  Comparing conservatives to Nazis (#71)

2.  Calling the Tea Party a bunch of "raving lunatics" (#75)

3.  An admission by the post writer he doesn't 'get' conservatism, i.e., his moderation is all a sham (#60)

 (I'd mention Adam Greenwood's calls for violence in #7, but I don't think he was actually serious.  It's very odd that Kent in #26 seems to take it seriously, showing the man has no sense of humor - it ties in with his refusal to even consider that conservative ideas have any merit).

In sum, Kent Larsen's plan to restore moderation is for all the right wingers to shut up and go away.

I totally agree.  Except that I'd add - everyone else in the 'Nacle should also shut up and go away.

Yes, the clever Fox uses a lot of big words

But I was struck by this phrase:
When I look at religion, I don’t conceive of it primarily in terms of beliefs which I, as an individual, accept and therefore consider binding; rather, I see it as one of several (often, it is true, conflicting) communities by and through which my sense of myself, and my sense of what I believe, is constituted.
 For those of you who can't follow the overly elaborate syntax and high falutin' vocabulary, I'll translate:

For me, the gospel is not the most important thing in my life.  I serve many masters.
 I guess that's the loophole.  If Russell serves more than two masters, the scriptures no longer apply, I guess.

Let me sum up Dave's first three paragraphs

Dave's first three paragraphs about Correlation can be summed up thusly:

But, remember - He's "not complaining."  Nope, not at all.

Of course, his "improvement suggestions" are to basically turn Sunday School into a literature class.  That'll make it more interesting - to Dave, anyway.  I'm so glad Dave realizes the rest of the church should think and act like him.

A mega post holding all the lost posts I could get from the magic of a Google Cache

It's not much and the coding is a bit messy, the order is all screwed up, and only some have the comments, but I saved what I could:

Well, I'm back!!!!

Hey, showing that even the Snarkers aren't immune to getting their trousers in a twist and their bras in a bunch and their boxers in a brief (wait - does that even make sense????), it appears that when I wasn't looking, I was somehow removed from Snarkernacle, and all my posts have vanished.

Well, they are welcome to it. Whatever makes 'em happy. I honestly never understood why I was invited over, but considering the blog make the ninety and nine moonshiners look like a banshee on caffeine (now the most recent post is from January! and my similes make even less sense now!), y'know - whatever.

So, I'm back here. It's too bad I lost those posts over there - I wouldn't have minded migrating them over here. Oh, well, even we incorporeal types make mistakes.

Onward and upward, tally and what ho!

If Kaimi had any sort of intellectual honesty, he'd leave the church.

Seriously. Kaimi thinks Glen Beck should leave, yet stays himself when he thinks it's all full of patriarchal bull[crap]. Whatever.

[Yeah, yeah. I snarked Kaimi two posts ago over at the other place. Don't want to turn Snarkernackle into anti-Kaimi all the time nacle].

Guest post by BT (Biggernockle Timely) Editors

Here I am, gazing at my navel. Isn't it lovely? What a wonderful navel we all have. It's a collective navel. Who cares if we're posting for a small group within a very tiny, insular community? Our collective navel is beautiful. Ignore the lint, that's just our nuance percolating.

Never has a blog post been more aptly named


(I felt this was too short to post on Snarkernackle, so whatever).

How do people find this blog?

Via very odd search terms. Here are some of the oddest:

Bloggernacle Correlation

This makes no sense. I thought that search query led people here instead.

margaret blair young

Hi Margaret! Doing some ego surfing are we? Interesting that this search term appeared on my keyword list right before mjby attacked me over on Snarkernacle.

porn bcc

Yes, they are a bunch of addicts over at bcc. So what? Do you really need to do a search to figure that out?

i hate glen beck
we hate glen beck
glen beck hater

Dan is still apparently dropping by. As is Julie, Steve, and the whole cast and crew of "T&S" and "BCC"

those who dare to go beneath the surface do so at their peril

Dang straight. Below the surface of the Bloggernacle is a cesspool of scum and wretchedness. Abandon all hope, ye who dare to go beneath the surface of this bunch.

what does my julie means?

I wish I knew. I mean, other than "look at me! I'm a nice little liberal who holds all the politically correct opinions."

I've decided Mormons can't belong to the tea party.

After all, the "Tea Party" movement is named after a forbidden drink. Since the Word of Wisdom forbids tea, anything named after that satanic drink should be off limits for LDS types. Avoiding the appearance of evil and all that.

Of course, the original Boston Tea Party may be okay, because they threw the tea into the ocean. If the modern day Tea Party movement was all about throwing tea into the ocean, then I wouldn't mind it so much. But, instead, it's about being conservative and stuff, and we all know Satan was the first conservative.
