Posers and Republicans


This is a Nirvana T-shirt

If you:
Don't own any Nirvana albums
Hate women, gays, or minorities
Detest rock music
And call yourself a Nirvana fan anyway…

Then fuck you, poser

This is a Christian Cross

If you:
Deny rights to the vulnerable
Ignore the sick and needy
Despise immigrants
And call yourself a Christian anyway…

Then fuck you, Republican


Bob McDonnell on the importance of being a Christian elected official

— Former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, convicted of 11 counts of corruption after his "I have a broken marriage" defense failed.


Would YOU do something?

A deity without the power to act is not worthy of worship.  A deity without the interest to act is not worthy of respect.  A deity without the evidence of action is not worthy of belief.
