- Fuckwits abound

So I took statistics and English 1C (called 205, critical thinking, at mendo). In English 1C we had debates of sorts... So I'm explaining that capital punishment is a waste of money because when we put money in to schools it reduces crime in a way that killing people (to show that killing people is wrong) never does. What does she counter with? Something along the lines of "that will never work because think about the first people murder, Cain killed Able." Huh? I was so amazed someone would answer that way my only response was, "I'm sorry, but that's fiction."
God, I can't fucking stand people who are so out of touch with reality that they think that this little book is the answer to everything. "No, science is irrelevant, cause my book tells me God says your wrong!" Seems to me that was the excuse the Church used to try and crush the Copernican revolution. Fuck if they weren't right that time, eh? "No, psychology and social science couldn't possibly be trusted to tell us that economic and social disability are primary reasons for violence, that education has been proved time and time again to reduce violence, no. No, GOD told me that people kill each other cause they're filled with evil and an invisible man called the devil convinces them to." I'm sorry, but trying to divine understanding of human psychology from the bible is like trying to divine understanding about feline psychology from The Cat in the Hat! It's fucking absurd!
This same person who, after telling me how just and righteous it was to kill people even though her wonderful Jesus said, “let those who are without sin cast the first stone,” told me that abortion is wrong and life starts at conception (before brain function begins and consciousness is possible). Are these people high on crack? Listen to what The Almighty JEBUS says one moment... even to the point of threatening people and telling them they'll land in hell... then turn around and say fuck it all and kill people cause they're “guilty.” These are the people who firebomb abortion clinics.
How could someone so full of GOD and yet be for capital punishment? Cause we all know that nothing expresses God's unconditional love and infinite forgiveness Christians chanting for someone to be shot up with poison. Yes! Yes indeed! Nothing can more convey the Lord our Savior JESUS CHRIST and his message then a room full of CYANIDE GAS! God be praised for giving us these horrid and brutal ways of taking life in the name of his justice. You know, I wonder... What kind of execution would Jesus prefer for those who break the laws from which he supposedly came to free the world?
“OHHH, look Joe! The condemned has been filled with the HOLY SPIRIT! He's moving with the power of GOD!!” “No Reverend Billy Ray, I think he's moving with the power of 20,000 volts...”
These people live. They breath our air. They eat our food (and as children our paint chips). And they vote for George Bush. Fuck. What else can be said? Fuck.
