Duh’Merica (a poem)

DUH’merica, what have you done?

While you parade the streets in gas guzzling suburbans, there are soldiers dying around the world trying to kill dark-skinned people after taking orders from fat, pasty-white politicians who only care about their offshore bank accounts.

DUH’merica, why don’t you care?

That our children have difficulty finding China on a map, but they can update their Facebook status perfectly while crossing a busy city street without getting splattered in traffic.

DUH’merica, why can’t you turn it off?

The Kardashians, TMZ, The Bachelor, American Idol, America’s Got Talent sift through the minds of our youth like a slow, neurotoxin eating them from the inside out. Continue reading

As Queer as a Football Bat (American Sports)

I was an athlete for many years and I enjoy the entertainment value of sports.  But, something has always intrigued me about the overt homosexual elements presented within athletics.

In America, sports are more highly regarded than almost every other element of society.  Most of our children grow up wanting to be a professional athlete and most parents are more than willing to help them attempt to make that dream come true.

For the exception of the WNBA, homosexuality and American athletics does not mix.  I was an athlete for years and I can tell you firsthand that being gay in locker room is about as comfortable as eating a cactus sandwich.

Why then is America alright with their superstar, male athletes doing the following things:
1.    Smacking another teammate on the ass after he makes a good play.  (When is this ever considered not-gay?)
2.    A quarterback placing his hands under the center’s anus as he awaits the hiking of the “ball.” (Let’s see here; guys hand touching another guys taint and ball sack, WOW) Continue reading

The Power of Color

It’s amazing how skin color can make people throw their belief systems into the garbage and totally forget what they stand for.

Homosexual Marriage: Unless you live under a rock, you probably heard that President Obama publically stated that he supports the right for homosexuals to marry.

Well done Pres, that’s common fucking sense and I didn’t realize that he’s the first President to actually support this out loud.  Damn, I guess I let my faith in mankind slip quite a bit there.

This really didn’t seem like a big deal to me until I watched an interview with pastor Dr. Kenneth Samuel regarding his support of Obama.

Samuel is the senior pastor of Victory for the World Church and sees Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage as the right thing for the country.

He called his church’s backing of the president “righteous” even if it means losing revenue and members after community television station WATC dropped the church’s weekly broadcast.

HOLD THE FUCKING PHONE- do you mean to tell me that the leader of a major black church in the United States is backing the President’s position on gay marriage?????

How can that be?  How is this even possible? Continue reading

My Old College Doesn’t Like Gay People

50+ Professors & Staff Resign From Christian University After Refusing to Sign Homosexuality Pledge

This truly makes me sad.  The college I graduated from in Rome, GA is in the news for some very backwards beliefs.

Yes, it’s a private college, I guess they call it university these days, but come on Shorter University wake up and smell the year, it’s 2012.

I graduated in 1999 and I remember back then several of the professors complained about having to sign a similar form like the one mentioned in the article above.  Many good professors left because they had to sign a piece of paper that said they would never drink alcohol.

Funny personal note; I took a final exam with my class and professor at the local Applebees bar one semester.  Yep, he left after that year to teach at another college where he was allowed to have a beer or drink wine at dinner.

By the way, I only went there because I received a full baseball scholarship and wanted a degree.  I didn’t give a shit that it was a Baptist school.

On a related note of hypocrisy, the music and theater department at Shorter was one of the most well known in the country.

But yeah, probably no way that music/theater students or their professors were gay.  No chance at all.

If you read the article, many of the comments below it are downright deplorable.

Fortunately for me, I’ve never donated a dime back to my college because it was generally run by bigots and obese, Southern Baptists.  What a sad institution to teach and encourage hate.
