Well, that idea went tits up

Well, any excuse to see two lesbians… I’m sure that Randy, the creator of that comic, already knows the answers to the questions he poses in the comic, but I just can’t pass up the opportunity to have a micro-rant about the subject manner: control. The one thing religion and government share is the urge to control their followers. In fact, there are, and have been in the past, many places where religion and government are the same thing, so control is paramount. The question about control is how do you get the people to accept your judgments? The quickest and most surefire way to show who’s boss is to find a scapegoat everyone can hate. Your mileage may vary depending on what load of shit you are using as a soapbox (who doesn’t want to save the world? Who doesn’t hate racists? Who doesn’t hate greedy people? [except we are all greedy, some people are just lucky.])

“But who hates boobies?! Everyone loves boobies!” That’s a harder sell, isn’t it? It goes back to the soapbox you’re peddling the bullshit from. If you can convince people to accept a certain standard of decency, especially a draconian rule-set, you can convince them to agree to anything. Until we can get everyone to think for themselves, this is going to be ongoing problem.

Admission: I laughed hard at the title. I think that is the most evil pun I’ve ever perpetrated.
