Quote of the Day

"Whoever imagines himself a favorite with God holds others in contempt."
--Robert G. Ingersoll.

Transgendered Political Appointment By Obama; Predictable Reaction By Christianists

President Obama has appointed a male-to-female transgender, Amanda Simpson, to senior technical adviser for the Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security. She's got 30 years in the field and is well-respected for her abilities. Of course the Christian 'tards have congratulated her in their own, inimitable fashion:

"Is there going to be a transgender quota now in the Obama administration?" asked Peter LaBarbera, president of the anti-gay group Americans for Truth. "How far does this politics of gay and transgender activism go? Clearly this is an administration that is pandering to the gay lobby."

"Simpson's nomination was forwarded through to President Obama by a gay activist group, making it appear that this appointment of a male-to-female 'transgender' activist to a high level Commerce Department position to be payback to his far-left base for their political support," a spokeswoman for Focus on the Family said in statement.

Yeah, because knowing a woman was born with male reproductive parts (despite the perfection of Gosh's intelligent design), and yet had the audacity to take advantage of modern medical practices to correct mother nature's screw-up will make people lose Jesus.

Good. If you're his representatives on Earth, we don't want him.

(Aside, am I going to Hell for not capitalizing a pronoun pertaining to the bearded guy with doe-eyes?)

The only appropriate response is, of course, Carlin:

"Don't these professional Christians have anything to do during the day?"

An Excellent List By Which To Live

From The Redheaded Skeptic:

1. You can do or be anything, but you can’t do or be everything. Prioritize: let some things go, and keep what matters.

2. Sometimes, a picture is worth more than 1000 words.

3. Not getting what you want sometimes paves the road that gets you what you wanted more.

4. No news isn’t always good news.

5. It’s okay not to be perfect.

6. It’s okay for people to not think you’re perfect.

7. Failure does not permanently suit me: I will overcome no matter what it takes or how difficult it gets.

8. Sometimes, you think you lost something you didn’t actually lose. And sometimes what you did lose wasn’t as important as you thought.

9. Sometimes, it’s worth it to face adversity just to prove to yourself that you can do it.

10. Just keep swimming.
