"This week is a special time for bunnies, peeps, and colored eggs as well as all of conservative Christendom who are celebrating their special holiday with the facsimiles of the instrument of torture that killed their religion’s namesake."
"In regional newspapers around the country churches have taken out full-page ads touting “holy week” and the wonders of knowing that a mythological character was tortured to death on a cross only to miraculously rise from the dead three days later."
"However, resurrection aside, there isn’t too much for conservative Christians to be proud of as of late based on the evil assault on women’s rights being waged by conservative Christians in Congress and state legislatures around the country. In fact, conservative Christians have targeted the LGBT movement and the American Cancer Society as well as women in their “holy war” on all things not emanating from the Christian bible."
"There are many different ways to be holy, but conservative Christians in America have bastardized the meaning of the word holy as well as the message of their savior who taught that neighborly love, charity, non-violence, and acceptance exemplifies what it means to be holy. Although there are a few conservative Christians who epitomize the embodiment of Jesus and his teachings, the majority are judgmental, mean-spirited, and vindictive toward anyone who refuses to go along with their satanic leanings."
"The Christian bible characterizes Satan as an angry, jealous being in opposition to god and his plan for humanity that Jesus personified. Based on the level of hate most conservative Christians have for non-compliant human beings, it sure appears that holiness has been redefined to mean something very different from what Jesus preached."
"In California during the Proposition 8, same-sex marriage debate, Catholics and Mormons poured millions of dollars into campaign coffers to deny gay couples the right to marry. Besides forcing their holy belief system on all Californians, the groups used the pulpit to inform congregants on how to vote and aired fallacious television ads warning that second graders would be indoctrinated into the gay lifestyle. In the same elections, there were several holy priests that warned parishioners that if they voted for Barack Obama, they would not be allowed to partake of the cracker and grape juice or confess their transgressions."
"In the House of Representatives, holy Christian-conservative Republicans led by Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) are attempting to use their holy mandate to defund Planned Parenthood and deny access to birth control, cancer screenings, and pre-natal care for millions of poor women. Obviously, the holier-than-everyone Republicans have insight into the scriptures that unholy people lack because for the pittance Planned Parenthood receives from the government, there must be a command in the bible that informs Christians it is holy to deny poor women access to life-saving cancer screening. Who would believe that anyone, holy or not, would oppose cancer screening or cancer research for that matter?"
"It is too bad that conservative Christians aren’t limited to just having one big holy week. If they were limited to just seven days of holiness, America would be a much better place. It would certainly be safer for women and gays if holiness abounded for a week instead of year-round. But the holy-roller Republicans practice their brand of holy all year and not just during holy week."
"If conservative Christians were serious about being holy, they would follow Jesus’s example and not worry about telling the world they’re holy. They would stop being judgmental and start expressing neighborly love instead of being vile, vindictive fear mongers to gain power and riches. Republican legislators claiming to be holy would not deny poor women cancer screening or poor children food and shelter. A holy person would not call for a boycott of the American Cancer Society or compare cancer research to Nazis. But then again, there are very few holy people in America; if there are any, they’re not conservatives, Republicans, or teabags. As Jesus said, the holy are poor, tired, and hungry and they don’t have to announce that it’s holy week."
So - "Fuck off you opportunistic leeches", Jesus did not say but really, really wanted to.

Screwed: The Undeclared War against the Middle Class ... and What We Can Do about It
Under the guise of "freeing" the market, conservatives have enriched themselves and their fat-cat cronies and screwed everyone else. Beginning with the Reagan administration, the U.S. government has steadily instituted policies and legislation that favor corporations over citizens. This book nails the truth about how both parties have been screwing the American people, except for the one hundredth of one percent who earn over $6 million a year.
