You Try, You Really Try ...

... to give people the benefit of the doubt, to not lapse back to embarrassing arguments you made in high school (e.g., 'people should have to pass some kind of intelligence test before being allowed to procreate') and then you stumble across something like this Angry Retarded Mom and you pretty much feel sick to death with humanity all over again. (Not that it makes it right, but she started calling people 'tards' first.) Check the post about firearms, it's chock full o' black humor.

On a semi-related note, I'm tempted to develop a Micah 6:8 Litmus Test for blogs that profess to be written by Christians but are little more than hateful screeds against 'libs, muslims, and gays'. I'm thinking of a template like:
The Micah 6:8 Litmus Test has been applied to your blog. Here are your results:
Do Justly
You wrote: "[insert easy to find quote in support of torture]"
Love Mercy
You wrote: "[insert easy to find quote advocating bombing the hell out of civilians in some other country demonstrably not involved in the 9/11 attacks]"
Walk Humbly With Thy God
You wrote: "[insert easy to find quote advocating putting statues of the Ten Commandments in front of courthouses or some other blatant violation of the principle of Separation of Church and State]"

You failed the test miserably. Your God is disgusted with you. I hope you're looking forward to the hellfire and damnation you've got coming.
Needs some tweaking. I, personally, don't believe anybody's got hellfire or damnation coming ... just want to point out that they must believe it based on their purported religous beliefs. If I ever decide to apply it, I'm sure you'll be able to tell by the inevitable spike in drool-soaked wingnut troll comments here.
