Dumbfuckery du Jour

Another tough day, I'm afraid.  Jim Bunning ended his little tantrum by trading obstinate obstructionism for the chance to get sand kicked in his face, then, eyes stinging, proceeded to pull a Shelby.  Somebody needs to put him in a home for terminally stupid dumbfuck Cons.

So there was the temptation to unleash upon that.  But, I thought, then there's MO State Sen. Gary Nodler.  All you need to know is that he claims that armed forces who allow teh gayz to serve openly suffer higher casualty rates, and you just know there's an R after his name. So I planned to unlimber the Smack-o-Matic and make him cry for his mommy.

But then I saw this:
Last week, a 12,000-pound SeaWorld Orlando orca killed trainer Dawn Brancheau while she swam in the tank. The orca, named Tilikum, had been involved in violent episodes in the past, including an incident in 1991 when “Tilikum and two female killer whales dragged trainer Keltie Byrne underwater, drowning her in front of spectators at Sealand of the Pacific, a defunct aquarium in Victoria, British Columbia.” Tilikum also seemed to be involved in the death of a man who snuck into the orca’s pool in 1999.

The American Family Association, the powerful right-wing Christian political organization, blogged that, “If the counsel of the Judeo-Christian tradition had been followed,” Beancheau would have never died. AFA blogger Bryan Fischer reasoned that according to Exodus, an animal like Tilikum should have been stoned back in 1991, and if biblical law were to be followed, the owners of Tilikum should be put to death:
Chalk another death up to animal rights insanity and to the ongoing failure of the West to take counsel on practical matters from the Scripture. [...] Says the ancient civil code of Israel, “When an ox gores a man or woman to death, the ox shall be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten, but the owner shall not be liable.” (Exodus 21:28) So, your animal kills somebody, your moral responsibility is to put that animal to death. You have no moral culpability in the death, because you didn’t know the animal was going to go postal on somebody. But, the Scripture soberly warns, if one of your animals kills a second time because you didn’t kill it after it claimed its first human victim, this time you die right along with your animal. To use the example from Exodus, if your ox kills a second time, “the ox shall be stoned, and its owner also shall be put to death.” (Exodus 21:29)
That's right.  These fucktards, who for reasons beyond my comprehension like to lay claim to moral superiority, believe people should stone killer whales to death for being killer fucking whales because the Bible sez so.

It's a wild fucking animal, and they think it should be executed.  Not only that, they're suggesting its owners should also be executed.  This, it seems, is the Christian thing to do.

If that is moral superiority, my friends, count me as a proud moral degenerate. 

It would be hard to think of something more abhorrent, unenlightened, anti-compassionate, and just generally disgusting than this attitude, except that they're Christian fundamentalists, which means their website is sure to be a rich source of equally abhorrent, unenlightened, anti-compassionate, and just generally disgusting items.  After all, if they advocate the stoning of killer whales plus owners, I'm pretty certain they're all about stoning teh gayz, too.  And, taking a trot through ye olde blog, I see I'm not far off: they frothed over hate crimes legislation by implying all gays are pedophiles.  Not to mention they're so phobic about the word "gay" that they've turned even Gays into Homosexuals.  And when STDs are on the rise among youngsters, they push more of the abstinence education that doesn't work.  My friend Garrett swears too much prayer rots a person's brain.  These dumbfucks are living, drooling proof of that.

So, way to go, AFA.  You've proven once again that you're completely unfit for polite society.

If you follow their "logic," what they're saying is that Tilikum should have been stoned to death after the first killing and that Sea World executives should be stoned to death now because their animal has killed again.
