Puns and Dozes

from the Bad Eagle Journal

Instead of “Guns and Rises,” a sadly lame takeoff on Guns and Roses, how about Puns and Dozes (for the yawn factor)? Mr. Schmohawk’s continued word games, albeit immaturely played, put one to sleep. Why not Runs and Noses (a bit too slimy)? Well then, why not Nuns and Hoses? Now there’s a picture that wrestles the imagination. Or speaking of picture-taking Catholic priests, why not Sons and Poses, and then write about the church closings resulting from massive coverups of Christian rape? But no, little david is once again showing us his white dominionist face; my advice to you — when he SHOWS you his white dominionist face, BELIEVE him. Ignorance is no excuse when it comes to the Bumbanshee Warrior; he’s obviously not all together on this 'Christian love' thing.

David Yeagley — “Guns and Rises ... I say this to Christians: you have a choice. You can be a free Christian, or you can be a persecuted, imprisoned Christian. If you want to be free, it will cost something. Historically, it cost the Revolutionary War. It was the price of creating a new country” (DY, Mar. 4, 2007)

First, as you probably already know, the USA was not founded as a Christian nation at all, and the founders were Deists (or possibly Unitarians at best). Even a US Treaty was written and approved while George Washington was President, and signed into law under President Adams, that explicitly states the US was not Christian:
US Treaty—"As the Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Musselmen; and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries" (US Treaty of Tripoli. In Article 11, 1796)

So for The Postiche Patriot to harp on this ‘Christian warrior’ nonsense supposedly coming from the founding of America, he’s not accounting for the facts of history. Like so many white dominionists, the on-the-pot patriot WISHES America were some fantasy warrior Christian nation (so he’d “fit in” rather than live as a boorish misfit). But you can’t win for losing on this one Average Savage. America is what it is, no matter how loudly you whimper, wishing it were different. Too bad whimpering warrior, you lose.

As for my own particular view on this so-called Christian call-to-arms, this Christian-backed immoral war with Iraq, and this Christian saber-rattling toward Iran, please refer to this earlier “Uncle Tomahawk” cartoon. Hey, why not simply abolish the constitution all together, and establish the ten commandments as the official government? yeah right (that’s sarcasm for the intellectually challenged, little david). Dominionists are warmongers plain-and-simple, without compassion, without heart, and without social intelligence. And, for what it’s worth, I count David A. Yeagley — Mr. Civil Whites — among them.
