Rebecca Hancock told that Grace Community Church, a non-denominational church in Jacksonville, Fla., was against her relationship with boyfriend Frank Young because the two were sexually active but not married.

When she wasn’t willing to obey the church's orders to leave him, she decided to leave the church instead, allowing her two children to remain active members.

Now, she says, church elders have given her the worst ultimatum yet: In a Dec. 8 letter, they told her she either has to meet with them and end her "immoral" relationship or she will face public humiliation.

Just when I think there is not enough stupid to go around, a story like this raises its ugly head. First of all, this church is fucked. Who would want to be a member of a church like this? Unfortunately, I think, the answer is a lot of people. If the clergy at that church "believe" her relationship to be harmful then they should be trying to help her, not threatening to publicly humiliate her.

If the church is truly trying to carry out the word of its god, then they should schedule a public stoning of this woman because that is the biblical punishment for adultery.

Then there is this woman who, worried about public exposure, takes her case to the press. If her little fucktard offspring hadn't known that Mommy was fucking her boyfriend they sure do now. If she was interested in publicly flogging this church, better to have waited until after they "outed" her (or invite a journalist to the outing).

Stupid just oozes outta every pore of this story.

Issa He Fucking Kidding?

After years of habitually resisting and belittling attempts to use a key House committee as a mechanism to investigate and hold the White House accountable, Republicans are deciding they want to get into the oversight game.

Rep. Darrel Issa (R-CA), who will become ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is making clear the next president will be firmly in his sights.

This ass clown (and his compadres) spent the past 8 years with their fingers up their ass watching the most corrupt, inept, and dangerous administration in the history of this country run rampant... and now he is interested in oversight? Fuck him.

Of course, oversight is a great thing, and Congress needs to get back to doing it. But that hypocrite Issa can eat me. Whenever Henry Waxman investigated abuses within the Bush administration (admittedly, not enough since taking charge of the Oversight Committee two years ago) Issa bitched and moaned.

For anyone interested, here is classic Issa in action.

Sock and Awe

Betcha thought I wasn't going to comment on the shoe-throwing incident? Well, I wasn't until I saw this great web game where you can hurl shoes at W.

It is called "Sock and Awe" - and if you know me, I just cannot resist a good pun!

Caroline Kennedy? There's Gotta Be Someone More Qualified

Caroline Kennedy has voiced her desire to be named to succeed Hillary Clinton as the junior Senator from New York after Hillary is confirmed as Obama's Secretary of State. I don't see it happening... Yes, I know that there may be sentiment for Teddy Kennedy to turn his Senate desk over to someone in the family... he sits in his brother's (JFK's) desk in the back of the Senate.

But that is no way to choose a replacement Senator. Kennedy's only "qualification" is having the last name of Kennedy. I guess she could learn on the job, but I hope Governor Patterson appoints someone more suited to hit the ground running (maybe AG Andrew Cuomo?)
