30: Hobby Lobby

We discuss the recent Supreme Court decision where, as it turns out, corporations are people who can exercise their religious liberties to discriminate against women too! That, and plenty of skunk dicks.

  1. thanks!

  2. gah, i should have said something cynical and arseholeish rather than be pleased

  3. Yeah, we pretty much have to ban you now.

  4. i am horribly pleased to earn it. damn now i sound engishly polite (even our invading was ‘civilised’)!

  5. But if men are supposed to have casual sex whenever they want, and women are supposed to have an aspirin between their knees… who will the men fuck?

    That’s where the dogs come in.

  6. What was the citation for the man punching the woman to cause an abortion again in the Bible?

  7. If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life. — Exodus 21:22-23

  8. That’s a little dubious, though. I’ve heard it argued that “if yet no mischief follows” means the kid survives. So it’s only if the kid survives that you shall give life for life.

  9. The intelligent reader understands that I meant “…only if the kid dies…”

    Which is why I have to point it out here.

  10. The fact that the passage can be read several ways means that the Omnipotent Ruler of the Universe is a shitty communicator. If only our Lord and Savior was more precise in his holy language!

  11. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader
    amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic
    job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!

  12. hello!,I like your writing very a lot! percentage we be in contact extra about your
    article on AOL? I require an expert in this area to unravel my problem.
    May be that is you! Looking ahead to look you.

  13. Someone has consumed the holy mushrooms.

  14. I read the “husband will lay upon him” part that he has to be the catcher during the punishment. Although that might seem like punishment for the husband, as well, if he’s not into gay sex.

    Good episode. Enjoyed it. Well, apart from the feeling of ‘WTF is going on in the US with the supreme court justices?’.

    Seriously though, isn’t there some sort of critical think aptitude test that judges should need to pass before being let loose on the reigns of the most powerful court in the land!?

    The dogs of chaos have surely been let loose with this Hobby Lobby decision. What recourse is there to overturn a supreme court decision? Is there precedent for challenging a supreme court ruling. I’m guessing not; it was most of a gasp than a question.

    Oh, BTW, I thought I was commenting on the most recent podcast ‘Hobby Lobby dissent’ but now I see that a thread hasn’t been started for that yet.

    WTF!, Isn’t there some sort of critical thinking aptitude test that internet posters like me should need to pass before being let loose on an unsuspecting world?!

    I’m guessing not. It was more a gasp of despair than a question.

  17. Well, the site was down for awhile so I couldn’t post. Back up now!
