Wow! What a great turn-out for the Zoo Rally yesterday despite the
heat. Thank you for coming; thank you for not being deterred to stand
The zoo is just one example where God has been
dishonored. We have all observed other areas in our city where He is
dishonored as well. Why is it we have no problem allowing in anything
and everything except God?”
Tulsa readers, and you know who you are, can you please straighten this shit out?
Also: You already have God. You’ve got God on the corner where the church is, you’ve got God walking around with you, those of you who have a personal relationship with Buddy Christ and talk to him daily are not going to get any official argument from anybody until you get in their faces about it. God already isallowed. And by allowed, what these narcissistic twits really mean is “in the news as much as discrimination against minority religions and gay people,” which, good luck, because you’re already home free, guys.
You can rent an apartment while being a Christian, and not get thrown out of the building for it. You can get a job as a Christian, and not get fired for it. You can get married as a Christian, and tell everybody all about it, and post videos and pictures online and nobody will say boo. In fact, people will leave little sparkly “have a blessed day!” .gifs all over your fucking MySpace about it. You can go on TV and talk all day long about your Christianity and the worst thing that might happen is somebody on the Internet might call you a sanctimonious asshole.
Which, sticks and stones.
Figuratively, unlike, say, Matthew Shepard.
And you know, speaking of people who were killed for who they are, there are places in the world where Christians are actually persecuted and killed, so maybe not so much with the drama about the unbearable pain of not being able to put up signs in the Zoo. Talk about the petty problems of Consumer Christians. Goddamn.
I swear, some of these nutballs were never taught the important lesson that not everybody has to like you (or your flavor of Jesus) for you to be okay. All kinds of God already is allowed. You just have to suck it up and tolerate the existence of somebody, somewhere, who might not think like you do. Most of us get to that point of willful obliviousness by, say, second grade. Maybe it’s just me. After all, I did spend a lot of time at the zoo as a kid.
ps. How is the Zoo dishonoring God? Have the gay penguins been recruiting again? Was a lion born with a rainbow mane? What?
