In my previous post, Dear Frank … you tell ’em, I made mention in one of the comments that Frank had altered part of the text. In its original form it read:
“It’s this simple: ALL people, including gay and atheist people, will have to stand before their creator and somehow explain away all the wrong things they’ve done and all the right things they’ve failed to do.”
As a measure of the disingenuity on display when this was mentioned the word “straight”was inserted into the text in an effort to try to now make it ‘all inclusive’ and not come across as bigoted. What a nice, thoughtful gesture, don’t you agree?
It then read:
“It’s this simple: ALL people, including straight, gay and atheist people, will have to stand before their creator and somehow explain away all the wrong things they’ve done and all the right things they’ve failed to do.”
Silly me, I did not take a screen shot – yes, JZ did sort of mention it – so now we have Dear Wally, as is his want, ranting on that I am a liar!
Now, my thing is this: if there was no intent on singling out gay people then there would have been no point writing “straight” in the first place. The phrase ”ALL people” would suffice. By adding ”straight” it simply drew attention to how ludicrous – and bigoted – the sentence was in the first place.
I feel a bit like a bible expert studying the text of the Testimonium Flavianum!
Oh, well, you lot will just have to place your bets as to whether this ”Satan’s Spawn” – moi – is on the level or if Frank & Friends are simply making sure you know that ALL people, straights and gays and … and … atheists are in for a rough time when they meet that meglomaniacal, genocidal monster, Yahweh in his Jesus disguise – or even the pair of them if it turns out the Trinity is yet another piece of Christian bullshit.
Seriously, you have to laugh.
Except that they breed and that’s a worry.
What a beautiful day it is over here in Jo’burg. let me b-off and get some lunch.
