right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.
  • Orbusmax

This gasbag so-called "preacher" proves by his responses that this is all about him. He is an egotistical idiot who wants to bring in dollars to his right wing church. He probably really doesn't care a bit one way or the other but like all hateriots, feels like this is a good issue to stir up the knuckledraggers.

Hutch is nothing but a punk.

So what, exactly, was this malignant narcissist proposing his hate-besotted dimbots do -- jump to perhaps even more gay-friendly Apple? Learn Linux? Or just bust out the trusty abacus?

I always wondered what eventually became of blowhard schoolyard bullies. I guess now we know.

Oh, and here's a lil' classic old Hutchie-poo might want to take note of:

The vitriol against Hutcherson might be deserved, but he, and the other Christian 'Righteous/Wrongteous' types, are misunderstood by the doo-doo-good liberals.

You've got to understand that these people are SINCERE in their belief that they are God's right hand on earth and that what they think God wants, they will do, God damning anyone who gets in the way! (Sounds real Christian, when put like that, doesn't it?) They just don't get that Jesus was a pacifist who accepted the lowly into his heart and would never, EVER dream of rejecting gays and lesbians, or virtually any other person whose life was lead in peace and harmony.

(What we call "God" is simply THE amorphous force of the universe, having done nothing to contribute to our human condition except that IT - not He or She! - imbued us all with the ability to choose our own horrible, strange or blissful lives.)

Society and everything accomplished in it is a HUMAN creation, and as such is simply flawed. Greatly flawed. Irreversably flawed. Hey, it's not even supposed to be great. This world is a hell!

People, Rev Hutcherson is flawed because he truly believes a lie told by a fool and perpetuated by every stooge from Constintine to George Dubbya Bush. The only response to such a one is to patently ignore its posturing, blathering, and hateful bullyings. That'll get him where it hurts most.

This preacher is a loudmouthed dummy. Thanks to Microsoft for seeing the light after its stumble. Truth be told the Microsoft flip-flop had nothing to go with the failure of the gay rights bill. The state senate GOP caucus had already decided to lock up together well before there was any publicity about the Microsoft switch. There were GOP senators who wanted to vote for the bill. But leadership agreed to support the views of the majority. The GOP majority had a single constituent group it was trying to please - christian fundamentalists. The really stupid part of this is that the proposal to add "sexual orientation" to the state's civil rights laws is a modest proposal with widespread mainstream appeal statewide. It would have been easy for GOP senators to say that the bill had nothing to do with interfering with fundy beliefs, because it didn't. They really screwed up in this. It'll pass soon, probably with a few less Republicans in the state senate.

These evangelical folks have besmirched and continue to destroy the message of christ in their search to elevate their own agendas. They will go the way of all demigogues
