Church Goers Love Torture

This isn’t a surprise if you’ve actually read the bible.

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The more often Americans go to church, the more likely they are to support the torture of suspected terrorists, according to a new survey.
The Washington Region Religious Campaign Against Torture rallied on Capitol Hill in March 2008.

More than half of people who attend services at least once a week — 54 percent — said the use of torture against suspected terrorists is “often” or “sometimes” justified. Only 42 percent of people who “seldom or never” go to services agreed, according to the analysis released Wednesday by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life.

White evangelical Protestants were the religious group most likely to say torture is often or sometimes justified — more than six in 10 supported it. People unaffiliated with any religious organization were least likely to back it. Only four in 10 of them did.

RIP Danny Gans

Unless you’ve been to Vegas, you probably don’t know who Danny Gans is. He was the headliner at the Mirage for the last decade who put on an outdated impressionist act (George Burns, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson from Thriller) and still managed to keep being voted Entertainer of the Year and selling out his show nightly. He left the Mirage and moved to Wynn’s new Encore earlier this year. (I hear that he had freshened up the act when he moved to the Encore)

You Can’t Please Everyone – The Big Lebowski

One star Amazon reviews of classic movies, music and literature. Today we take a look at The Big Lebowski:

I had the misfortune on having to watch this trash. I am here to warn you… NEVER EVER SEE THIS BORING NON-SENSICAL GARBAGE!

I saw this movie on tv, with all the language cut out, and thought it was very funny. Bought the movie from amazon. Was totally disgusted. The ‘F’ word was the most used word in the movie, practically every sentence. No reason for it, it didn’t add a thing. I soon found myself disgusted and making unflattering comments in response to the characters lines. Gave it away. Should have burned it as the trash it is.

How can people like a movie in which every other word is the “F” word? If simple minded people get a kick out of watching a guy named the Dude smoke a “J”, I’m worried about this country. Spend your time elsewhere, because this is not a thinking man’s flick.

I am very disappointed that I accidently purchased HD DVD and cannot watch this movie because I do not have the HD DVD player. And returning it will cost about the same amount in shipping as the cost of the item.

I looked forward to this movie. The story and actors attracted me to it. However after hearing the “F” word every three or four words, I shut it off. Sorry to see our language sink to such low levels.

Like, the dude, he’s such a…like, a dude, man!…Whatever – this movie really stank. The only part I thought was clever was that his only form of ID was a Ralph’s card.

This movie is Terrible. I am not sure which one stinks most, Murphys’ “Holy man”, this movie or “Manhattan” by Woody Allen. These kind of movies should be label “sleeping movies”

I am surprized to see all these high reviews. My wife and I saw the movie and rated it as among one of the worst we have seen. The Dude character is cute for about the first 10 minutes but after that the movie becomes really repetitive… that and no real storyline. Very disappointed. Expected something much better from the brothers

Daily Dose of Ingersoll

The church cannot give, because it does not produce. It is
claimed that the church has made men and women forgiving. I admit
that the church has preached forgiveness, but it has never forgiven
an enemy — never. Against the great and brave thinkers it has
coined and circulated countless lies. Never has the church told, or
tried to tell, the truth about an honest foe.
