My special Christmas moment: Finally, my own AR-15! This is the best Christmas ever. There it was, sitting in that big box under our tree. Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays, and thank you Jesus.

And on this Christmas day-

There are people out there-
That believe our God-ordained exceptional country is under attack from a United Nations global conspiracy to created a worldwide, ruthless, fascist society. Jesus gives them automatic weapons for that.

There are people out there-
That believe that the only solution to gun crime, is to get a hell of a lot more firepower- eh, Bobby Ray? Jesus gets us more ammo for that.

There are people out there-
That believe global warming is a sham created by evil scientists conspiratorially scheming to take control of our schools and gov't. Jesus gives us laser sights for that.

There are people out there-
That believe gays should be corralled in Gitmo-styled camps- because they are an abomination to God, a scourge on American-Christian Society, and a threat to our children (turning them into homos and all). Jesus gives us Glocks for that.

There are people out there-
That believe a Dr. that provides abortions should be executed, and women (regardless of circumstance) that receive abortions should be sent away with lengthy prison terms. Jesus gives us cute little 38s for that.

There are people out there-
That believe immigrants are a blemish on our national mandate, bringing their heathen religions and inferior cultures to our proud sovereign nation. Hell yea- Jesus gives us a couple of Desert Eagles for those that.

There are people out there-
That firmly believe that they are not racist, that they should do everything in their power to destroy Obama, even if it entails destroying the country- because he is an illegal alien, non-citizen, terrorist-sympathizing Muslim.

There are people out there-
That scream profanity and racist slurs at their tvs during a memorial service for 20 slaughtered American children- because it interrupts their football game. Jesus got us a big-ass 357 for that.

There are people out there, that only and continuously watch Fox News- convinced that it is the only trusted media link to what is really happening in the nation and the world. Jesus made us some pipe bombs for that.

..... And on this Christmas day,
there are people out there-
that feel good, thoroughly convinced without a shred of doubt- that they are a living testament to God's will- all the while brandishing, holding, even hugging their own weapon of mass destruction- sitting under the colored lights of their own fucking Christmas tree.

"Eh Bobby, let's take that rifle out this morning, see what kind of firepower it's got 'fore the game starts. Did you bring the extra case of Bud, dude?"

They are many. And they are dangerous... And I'm just tellin' you: The real Jesus is royally pissed.


Sincerely- Merry Christmas to all.

7:01 AM PT: The bitter disdain put forth in this diary was precipitated by this news article:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
