Apparently dear Pope Benedict believes that atheists are Nazis-in-waiting.

Even in our own lifetime, we can recall how Britain and her leaders stood against a Nazi tyranny that wished to eradicate God from society and denied our common humanity to many, especially the Jews, who were thought unfit to live.

I also recall the regime's attitude to Christian pastors and religious who spoke the truth in love, opposed the Nazis and paid for that opposition with their lives. As we reflect on the sobering lessons of the atheist extremism of the twentieth century, let us never forget how the exclusion of God, religion and virtue from public life leads ultimately to a truncated vision of man and of society and thus to a "reductive vision of the person and his destiny" [Caritas in Veritate, 29].

I suppose it would be a little much to expect the Pope to check his historical facts. He might discover that Hitler and most of the Third Reich leaders considered themselves Christians, and that Hitler repeatedly referred to himself as doing the Lord's work, equating atheism with communism. But hey, why would one of the world's prominent religious leaders bother with facts, when he can indulge in his own blind belief instead?

Wow.This is just like HBO's Rome, except without the good sets, good script and good actors. Which leaves, um, the nudity, and... nope, I'm empty apart from the bare flesh. I haven't seen actors pasted onto such bad CG backgrounds since the 80s BBC, it's so retro!

The karate grading tonight was something of a fiasco. Sensei called up the three of us who were testing for second green, then proceeded to run us through most of the exam for 1st purple, a grade above that we were testing for. The results really weren't good XD

It's not as if I don't know how to do that stuff, we're always working well above our grade in classes. But when you're all set to do lunging reverse punch, then he calls out double punch, your brain's still going, 'Huh? But that's not...' when you have to start. So when all three of us fucked up the first time and he gave us a second chance and we still looked kind of ragged, sensei finally twigged and apologised, and moved on... to the next purple grading move.

Some of it he later realised he'd screwed up, some of it he never did (well, maybe in really really hindsight, who knows?). But even when he got to the parts he called right, or the parts that were the same like the step kumite, we were all somewhat flustered and brain-dead, and I was just waving my arms around in vaguely the right places with absolutely no finesse or kime. And I was concentrating so damn hard in getting my arms in the right places for the moves I hadn't expected to do, the stances were all over the place and just had to take their chances, and I have no clue what my hips were doing (or more likely weren't). So I don't know what the grading senseis will do with all that. I guess they'll just have to give us all the benefit of the doubt....

In other news, we ate the second box of Ethel M chocolates from Vegas, and OMG, the truffles were even better than the nut and caramel selection. And given what a caramel addict I am, that's really saying something. I definitely have to find out if those things are for sale online ::yum::

The American Family Association are now supplying your free weekly dose of fun, dancing, semi-naked gay guys! Go get your fix while it's hot!

And seriously, people, if that's what you consider offensive in public, you needed to get out and go to a few more student parties. I'm just sayin'....

In this post, talk with your icons, and *only* your icons. Post early, post often, and respond to whomever you want. Just leave a dot or a dash in the comment field if LJ tells you you can't post a blank

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] andmydog. And yes, this is my LJ, and yes, the icons are pervy!

So no gays - okay.

Read a little further - no sex (orientation irrelevant). No 'icky stuff'.

Oh, and look, the maintainer has on their interests list 'bashing democrats', 'chrisitanity' and 'ronald reagan'(!). Why don't they just be a little more upfront and call it the 'nothing_my_preacher_wouldn't_want_to_read_zone'?

So the next time we find one of those people, we now know exactly where to tell them to go! Yay! XD.

Link taken from [livejournal.com profile] mamishka, because everyone needs to see this.

So someone said, 'I know! Best thing evah! Let's make a giant pink rabbit! And, um, leave it on a hillside to rot!'

And then someone else said, 'Dude! Great idea!!! That'll rock everyone's world!'

And then some local councilman said, 'Of course you guys can leave it on our mountain peak to be seen for miles around. It totally won't be an eyesore at all!'

That's got to be the weirdest thing I've heard going on outside California....

So apparently I like guy-on-guy sex because I'm a proponent of female chastity who feels threatened by het.

'Twas said by academics, so it must be true!
*snort* Would it be too much trouble for them to go and find an academic who actually likes the subject on which they are opining?

And as a not-so-aside, the artwork at the top of this article was done by the wonderful Kiriko Moth, and since they didn't link to her, I will.
