Well, well, well, the US Supreme Court
has refused to hear the Reverend
Jerry Falwell's trademark infringement suit against Christopher Lamparello.
Mr. Lamparello operates a website known as www.jerryfallwell.com *notice the double L.
Lawyers for the Lynchburg, Virginia based Falwell (Lynch-burg, God does have a sense of humor) accused Lamparello of cyber squatting and stealing customers. They argued that it was a trademark infringement. The Supreme Court decided to dismiss this frivolity.
What Mr. Lamparello does on his website (complete with disclaimer and redirectional click to the reverend) is cerebrally battle against Jerry's war on homosexuality. Jerry believes that being gay is not only a sin but an affliction or disease (like measles) that can be healed.
Like any biblical blowhard worth his salt,
Jerry draws upon a few handpicked scriptures to support his theory. Mr. Lamparello deftly
exposes other politically incorrect scriptures
that Jerry refuses to enforce (but I'm sure he's tempted) such as stoning brides who
aren't virgins, supporting slavery, keeping women silent and covered in church, and
ensuring that men keep their hair short.
Poor Jerry, as a goyum gaybasher, he ironically presents himself as the polar opposite of the compassionate Yeshua bar Yusef of Nazareth. I find that a little queer!
These days Jerry is regularly (unwittingly one assumes) used as a foil on newscasts featuring debates on ignorance, intolerance and his latest victim global warming.
undoit.org Jerry dispels global warming as a non-threat to our 6000 year old planet and a 'lie from the Devil' and environmental atheists ie. Democrats.
Maybe he has global warming confused with glowbowl warming. Yeah that could be, Jerry strikes me as sort of a straight ten pin kind of guy.
Jerry must believe that he is perceived by the viewers as some sort of modern day-divinely inspired-reformationist-prophet. In reality he is paraded about by the media as a living parody. He comes across as a smarmy, self righteous, know-it-all, blowhard, religious nutjob. Yessiree, this funny little pharisee really gets under your skin when he opens his piehole.
Regretably, Jerry and his adherents
in the far-right/always right spectrum of the religious world are on a crusade. These people are still espousing their irrational homophobic prejudice as divine truth and fight against Gayism with almost (but thankfully not quite) the same fervor that was used on Jews(Christ Killers) during the Spanish Inquisition. Oy! What's with all the Jewish references? Last night I viewed a horrific accounting of the systematic destruction of the European Jews in Auschwitz. I am still angry and saddened by the depravity of mankind. I recognise that there are terrible consequences for ignoring hateful, ignorant men who can implode our world in their pursuit of delusional grandeur. Religious and political powerbrokers can be extremely hazardous to your health.
Being Gay, Jerry, is not the same as having the measles. I won't bore you with the usual scientific evidence of the altered hypothalmus and the 34% larger (ooh la la!) anterior commisure discovered in gay men. Check out How Big is God's Hypothalmus? @ http://LARGETONY and for further hypothesis on the hypothalmus www.genuinejeff.com/researchdata.
What about the obvious self evident nature of homosexuality. Let's just say that most of us pretty much 'get' the gay thing. We 'get' the not-so-inside jokes on Will and Grace. When Jack says "That is SO gay!"we laugh with them, not at them.
It seems fairly obvious to most of us that individuals are genetically predisposed as such. Oh yeah, and one other little thing, every family has someone hiding in or waltzing out of the closet.
Oh sure a few brave, curious, souls try it out for size, but 99% are naturally here and queer so get used to it. Let it go! Try something a little more Christ-like for a change, like tolerance!
"Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion?To make half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites."
