and that pisses me off. Nobody should have to wake up pissed off.
Some fundy bitch told a flat out lie about me yesterday in order to make a spurious insinuation that I was guilty of doing something that she had done.
Fortunately, she did it in public and there was a written record to which I could immediately point.
Unfortunately, it was neither the time nor the place for such insipid little sniping tactics, and I let her lie bait me into defending myself. I admit it, the troll bested me and accomplished her mission, which was to make herself look like a sweet innocent caring person, and distract attention from the problem at hand. Worst of all, I have a friend in need who isn’t getting the attention she needs and deserves, but is just getting hammered over the head with bible verses and Jesus platitudes telling her that she ought not be thinking for herself. I’m afraid she’ll be so overwhelmed and her needs will be so obscured in the cloud of misdirection that she’ll find it too easy to just slip back into the mire from which she nearly escaped.
Of course the slimy little weasel had to lie and cheat and slander me to do all that, but I doubt anyone will remember that part. It’s a successful tactic, and it’s all the fundies have when confronted with anything outside their narrow little alternate reality.
Gotta give the fundies this: they’ve really tweaked themselves up an effective mind control machine, and they are very good at knowing exactly which buttons to push.
Honesty, altruism, kindness, fairness… they’re all foreign concepts to the fundy mindset. The only thing they understand is winning at all costs, increasing the number of asses in the pew and thus dollars in the offering plate, reality and facts be damned. I think the power rush must be like crack.
I hope someone out there is at least a little disappointed in the delay.
