Friday God Blogging

The BushCo. holy war rolls on.
W: "This crusade, this war on terrorism is gonna take a while."
Yep. Especially when the Department of Defense does stupid stuff like approving this picture of a marine tank in Iraq:

This photo was on the DoD website for 5 days with this caption: Haditha Dam, Al Anbar, Iraq - The 'New Testament' a tank with 4th Tank Co., 1st Tank battalion attached to 3/25 prepares to lead the way during a recent mission. Photo by: Cpl. Ken Melton (date photo was taken 05/05/2005)
Below the caption it read, "This image cleared for release" It has since been scrubbed from the Marine Corps site (Thanks to AmericaBlog) so now when you follow the original link,
you get a "general error" message. That looks more like a "specific error" in judgement, if you ask me. Or maybe a "major f(_)ck up?" At least we can all take comfort that the Defense Department is finally being honest about their mission.

Uh, hold up. Here's another example of the military's "honesty":
During his Thursday press conference Pentagon spokesman Lawrence DiRita said this regarding a US servicemember who was removed for "mishandling the Quran": "And again, it involves, again, an inadvertent mishandling, but one that was deemed sufficiently -- again, with the caution that the commanders are trying to establish, that it's inadvertent, but move him to another set of duties."
But on May 17, Mr. DiRita said this: “When a specific, credible allegation of this nature were to be received, we would take it quite seriously,” he said. “But we’ve not seen specific, credible allegations.” Well OK then.
Fast forward to May 20 when DiRita said, "
We just have found no indication that as a matter of interrogation policy, the Quran was used."

Joint Task Force - Guantanamo Commander Brig. Gen. Jay W. Hood said Thursday, "First off,I'd like you to know that we have found no credible evidence that a member of the Joint Task Force at Guantanamo Bay ever flushed a Quran down the toilet. We did identify 13 incidents of alleged mishandling of the Quran by Joint Task Force Personnel."
I have some questions. Do they even have flushable toilets at GITMO? And if they do, is it possible to flush a book the size of the Quran down a toilet? I'm serious. Help.
Also note that during the press conference, they never specified what "alleged mishandling" means.
See The Raw Story post for more.

Incidentally, if you rearrange the letters in Lawrence DiRita's name you get liar enticed war or liar created win. No, i'm not clever enough to figure that out all by myself. I got some help here.

God in brief...

A Bible text found in an ancient Egyptian garbage dump indicates the Number of the Beast is 616, not 666.

Apparently, doomsday cults, apocalypse authors and countless metal bands have been dialing the wrong number.
Microsoft fires Right Wing Religious Radical Ralph Reed.

From Seattle Weekly:
When it was recently revealed that Microsoft had employed religious conservative Ralph Reed as a political consultant, it was logical to wonder if his $20,000 monthly retainer was somehow related to the company's temporary refusal to support a gay-rights bill in Olympia, which failed. Maybe the fiercely antigay crusader with the choirboy looks would be there to guide Bill Gates through a nationwide boycott of software products, as threatened by Eastside minister Ken Hutcherson.

So you may now lift your ban on MicroSoft products. Put your ancient typewriter back in the closet. You may, however, continue your ban on ex-football-playing megachurch ministering spritual bomb dropping assholes. Thank you.

Christian Group drops Disney boycott The Religious Radicals at the American Family Association have called for an end to their 9-year boycott of the Mouse. Now that Disney has severed ties with such heathens as Harvey Weinstein and Micheal Eisner, and will soon release CS Lewis' The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, they say it is now permissable for its members to go to Disneyland and see the Sights. Hooray for tolerance!

God's hand-picked Leader of the Free World misled the American people.

From Raw Story: Boston constitutional lawyer seeks Resolution of Inquiry on Iraq
The recent release of the Downing Street Memo provides new and compelling evidence that the President of the United States has been actively engaged in a conspiracy to deceive and mislead the United States Congress and the American people about the basis for going to war against Iraq.
High Crimes and Misdemeanors in the White House? Not Our Dear Leader. I'm sure whatever he did, it's not half as bad as getting a beejay.

Join me next tweak for Friday God Blogging, and enjoy the weekend.
