If you take yourself really seriously, and you sincerely believe that your presence on Twitter and/or the many times a day you tweet about your latest profit-making venture, or how your social meedia expertise should be knocking us off our feet and leaving us completely astonished and speechless, or even if you’re one of those people who feels that everyone in the universe should be clued into every second of your day, every day, this is probably not for you. But for everyone else, this is incredibly funny. Enjoy.

A driver told a blind cancer sufferer to get off his bus when a woman and her children became hysterical at the sight of his guide dog. George Herridge,
71, told how the mother flew into a rage and shouted at him in a foreign language. A passenger explained she wanted him to get off the bus during the incident
on May 20.
Mr. Herridge stood his ground and refused to leave the bus, and very good on him for that. This is the sort of thing that makes me want to go into activist mode. Guide dogs are an invaluable help to their blind companions, and people have no right to ask that people using guide dogs leave buses, or establishments, or wherever they happenn to be. And people who use religion as an excuse for this sort of abhorrent behavior are in a way worse. It’s like they’re trying to foist their own personal views of purity onto the rest of the world, who may or may not want it. Somehow, I don’t think God, or Allah, or pick the deity is going to send someone straight to hell just because they spent a few minutes of one day in the company of a dog. And as far as children being frightened of the dog and raising Cain, this would be one of those occasions where parents need to take control of the siituation and tell the children to deal with it, instead of convincing bus drivers to expel the passenger with the dog. I consider myself to be a tolerant person. I won’t go out of my way to offend someone’s sensibilities, and in most situations, will even go out of my way to make sure that their sensibilities are taken into account. But this sort of thing is just beyond the pale.

Charles Taylor, the former dictator of Liberia who is currently imprisoned in the Hague awaiting trial by the special court for Sierra Leone, has decided to convert to Judaism. According to the BBC, one of his wives reports that he is now practicing Judaism, but still believes in Jesus. In other words, he wants to practice both Judaism and Christianity. I hope Mr. Taylor doesn’t think that his newfound faith will somehow lessen the effect or severity of the charges pending against him. Accepting this man as a candidate for conversion feels, on a gut level, the same as accepting a professed Nazi as a candidate for conversion. On the other hannd, I suppose it’s remotely possible that he is actually attemptting to turn his life around and become a better person, although I can’t help but doubt this rather strongly. And I hope that someone takes the time to inform Mr. Taylor that, in order to convert to Judaism, even the most liberal form, he has to forsake all other gods, including Jesus.

I’m sure there are probably other categories for this but they aren’t coming to mind at this minute.

From the Planning to Plan Department: Just about everyone opposes President Obama’s planned closure of Gitmo, and even the members of his own party refused to grant the president the $80 million he asked for to close the facility, voting 90 to 6 to strip the requested funds from a war-spending bill. It’s pretty bad when even your allies desert you like that. Maybe this huge lack of support will convince the president to scrap this endeavor and move on to something else, perhaps something a bit more sensible. (Via).

More of the idolatry which goes by the name of Americanism, this time from the left. On Friday, Newsweek’s editor, Evan Thomas, brought adulation over President Obama’s Cairo speech to a whole new level by declaring on MSNBC: “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above above the world, he’s sort of God.” And the really sad partt is that this sort of thing isn’t immediately declared sick. I’m still waiting for the President Obama holy cards and icons, and I hope that President Obama has enough sense to eschew this sort of worshipful praise. After all, he has an example to look to from his own scripture, in the story of Paul and Barnabas being declared Zeus and Hermes by the people of Lystra, (see Acts 14:11-18). I won’t hold my breath.

(IsraelNN.com) The IDF Rabbinate is hard at work on the development of a special touch screen that would make it possible to use vital computer systems without violating Sabbath, reports IDF magazine BaMachaneh (In the Camp).

Operational considerations mandate the use of computer systems like ‘Masua’ or ‘Sheder Cham 400’ during the Sabbath. These systems inform their operators of the location of IDF units during operations and battles. Other systems, like the IDF’s medical information system, named CPR, must also be used on Sabbath.

A Louisville, KY pastor is encouraging his congregation to bring fire arms to church on June 27th, in celebration of the 4th of July and the second amendment. This is the sort of thing that transforms simple patriotism into Americanism, the idolatry of preference of some of those who would call themselvves conservatives. Look, I’m in favor of keeping and bearing arms, and I firmly believe in the right to use lethal force to protect loved ones and property. But this is taking it too far. Since when did weapons have a place in worship services? It doesn’t matter if the guns will be unloaded. If they’re going to go to all this trouble, why not just put some of them on the altar and start bowing to them. Maybe even offeer sacrifices and such. They’re already half way there.
