But Jesus Isn’t the One Getting Married

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bigot.“I am sorry. I can’t do your wedding because of my relationship with Jesus Christ.” —Richmond, Washington, florist Barronelle Stutzman, declining to do business with gay ten-year customers and bringing the wrath of the state attorney general upon her. [Seattle P-I]


Actually, Jesus might just give some eyeroll, maybe rebuke this person. One of His disciples, Peter most likely, might be counted on to deliver a smiting, however. He was known to carry and use a blade and cut a dude in the park one night.

“I’m sorry, I can’t refer any more business to you because of YOUR relationship with Jeebus.” — every Richmond, WA wedding planner who happens to be gay.

Hahaha I got a Christian Mingle ad in the Not MSNBC section.

@ManchuCandidate: While I, in the first instance, got a plug for the movie Luv starring the Obama buddy Common.

Then, after I signed in, it switched to that paragon of b-ball excellence Liberty University.

@ManchuCandidate: “Canadian Badlands Packages from $189”. How’s it hangin’, Alberta?

@ManchuCandidate: “Earn a Bible Degree: eLearners.” I think I earned that shit a lonnnnng time ago.

Ah. Now I have the Christian Mingle. I might do it for the LULZ.

@al2o3cr: That’s a better punishment than the attorney general could come up with.

Luther’s got a lot to answer for.

@redmanlaw: I’m the only person in Tennessee that can’t quote scripture so please explain to me when St Pete cut a dude. I do remember when Samson i think, had to smite somebody with the jawbone of an ass. That mighta made a better smiter back in the day due to metal quality. Right wing radio talkers and alleged news casters flap the jawbone of an ass at their enemies all the time these days.

Off subject but Obama is threatening to sell TVA to Duke power most likely and triple our power bills. Even the few lefties here are pissed off now. The teapublican’ts would normally be behind this 100%, but Obama came up with the idea, so they’re not into it.

@jwmcsame: Right after Judas tipped off the Feds, they came for Jesus after his prayer time/sweating blood in the garden. That’s when Peter broke bad and cut off the guy’s ear. I can imagine in the Tea Party version of the Jesus story, the sword is replaced by an AR-15.

@jwmcsame: Peter cut off the ear of the high priest’s servant when they came to arrest Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. At least, according to John. The other three gospels say “one of Jesus’s companions” did it. But they all contain the story.

Edit: Whoops, matador beat me to it (with much more panache too)!

@flippin eck: I didn’t know this story. You’d think Peter would put a little more effort into defending his Lord.

@Dodgerblue: Well, Peter’s very next act was the whole denying-the-Lord-three-times-before-the-cock-crows thing. In general, he didn’t comport himself very well during the whole arrest/trial/crucifixion.

@flippin eck: And yet he got crucified upside-down for his later actions, right? I guess he, uh, came to Jesus.

@Dodgerblue: How long is Greinke out? I’m not into forgiveness on this one, yet. Magic needs to find somebody like Maurice Lucas (RIP) to handle this shit.

@jwmcsame: Not clear. I gave away tickets for next Wednesday’s home game vs. the Pads, which I now regret. Too bad we don’t have Drysdale on the staff any more . . .

@Dodgerblue: Well, you can’t give me shit about my choking stoner pitcher short-haired Timmy Lincecum because at least he isn’t dumb enough to put his $100 million collarbone into a fight with a meathead from Los Padres.

P.S. Mr. SFL and I noticed that when Los Gigantes have a road game in Sandy Eggo, the crowd is overwhelmingly wearing orange and black as all the Bay Area folks have escaped summer fog. Thus we are planning a similar trip, so alert to the SoCal Stinquers, there may be a three day weekend (when the Padres make the most money)

@SanFranLefty: Let’s talk. I have some Gnats v Dodgers tix this summer.

With respect to the whole Jesus and Christianity thing, I think this lady is as yet unclear on the concept…
