Did you ever, ever notice, the kind of thoughts I got


Ives One, Ronald Davis, 1962

* Top Ten conservative idiots (Abramoff takes spots 1 & 2 this week). excerpt:

"10. Lonnie Latham

"And finally, the Top 10 wouldn't be the Top 10 if we couldn't start the new year off with yet another tale of dubious conservative morals and values. Last week "An executive committee member of the Southern Baptist Convention was arrested on a lewdness charge for propositioning a plainclothes policeman outside a hotel, according to ChannelOklahoma.com.

"Lonnie Latham was apparently arrested in an area of Oklahoma City 'where the public has complained about male prostitutes flagging down cars' after he invited a plainclothes police officer to come back to his hotel room for oral sex.

"In his defense, Latham said, 'I was set up. I was in the area pastoring to police.' Well, sure. If by 'pastoring to police' he meant 'seeking hot man-on-man blowjob action.'

"And wouldn't you know it, Latham has previously 'spoken out against same-sex marriage and in support of a Southern Baptist Convention directive urging its 42,000 churches to befriend gays and lesbians and try to convince them that they can become heterosexual 'if they accept Jesus Christ as their savior and reject their 'sinful, destructive lifestyle.'

"Looks like he'll have to work a bit harder at that whole 'convincing yourself you're heterosexual' thing. See you next week!"

* Jesus healed using cannabis. excerpt:

"Jesus was almost certainly a cannabis user and an early proponent of the medicinal properties of the drug, according to a study of scriptural texts published this month. The study suggests that Jesus and his disciples used the drug to carry out miraculous healings.

"The anointing oil used by Jesus and his disciples contained an ingredient called kaneh-bosem which has since been identified as cannabis extract, according to an article by Chris Bennett in the drugs magazine, High Times, entitled Was Jesus a Stoner? The incense used by Jesus in ceremonies also contained a cannabis extract, suggests Mr Bennett, who quotes scholars to back his claims.
...
"Quoting the New Testament, Mr Bennett argues that Jesus anointed his disciples with the oil and encouraged them to do the same with other followers. This could have been responsible for healing eye and skin diseases referred to in the Gospels.

"'If cannabis was one of the main ingredients of the ancient anointing oil _ and receiving this oil is what made Jesus the Christ and his followers Christians, then persecuting those who use cannabis could be considered anti-Christ,' Mr Bennett concludes."

* Harry Belefonte calls Bush 'greatest terrorist in the world’. excerpt:

"No matter what the greatest tyrant in the world, the greatest terrorist in the world, George W. Bush says, we’re here to tell you: Not hundreds, not thousands, but millions of the American people ... support your revolution," Belafonte told “No matter what the greatest tyrant in the world, the greatest terrorist in the world, George W. Bush says, we’re here to tell you: Not hundreds, not thousands, but millions of the American people ... support your revolution,” Belafonte told Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez during the broadcast.

* Tragic and senseless death of ace NY Times reporter and friend's father David E. Rosenbaum. RIP.
