I Am Spartacus

I don’t read too many political blogs these days but I’m a huge fan of Shakespeare’s Sister which I always find to be funny and insightful. Melissa, who runs Shakespeare’s Sis, has resigned her post in the John Edwards campaign as a part time technical advisor due to the negative attention being brought onto the campaign from Bill Donohue and the Catholic League.

What did Melissa write on Shakespeare’s Sister that put a crucifix up Billy boy’s ass?

“…it’s difficult to imagine a time in which Christianity wholly submits to the prevailing view of science and ends its reign of persecution against the LGBT community. This time, they are not going after one man, but millions of people, and some of Christianity’s most prominent leaders — including the Pope — regularly speak out against gay tolerance. In America, many Christian leaders actively pursue discriminatory legislation, seeking to limit the rights of the LGBT community throughout society. Should they eventually embrace the scientific view this time, they will have a lot more for which to answer — which certainly means their reluctance to admit their error is much greater.”

There are a few other posts they had issues with which are listed here and that they are now using to label Melissa as an “anti-Catholic vulgar trash-talking bigot”. (Wait a minute, what’s wrong with being a vulgar trash-talker?) It’s ridiculous that a self-appointed blowhard like Bill Donohue (Catholics already have a leader billy, he’s called the pope) gets so much attention from the media.

Looking back over my archives, I hereby pre-emptively resign any positions that I have not yet been appointed to in any political campaign. Go visit Shakes today to give her your support.
