• Jimmy Carter Leaving Southern Baptist Church Because of Deeply-Ingrained Discrimination Against Women or Something

    Hahahaha! Everybody likes to make fun of former President Jimmy Carter. And with good reason! He's so stupid and silly and failed to steer our government out of a terrible recession fast enough and lost his re-election attempt to Ronald Reagan! And he has a funny accent! And he likes to eat peanuts! Which aren't even nuts but legumes! What a stupid-sounding, legume-eating former one-term president!

    What's that bozo up to these days? Probably something stupid and silly. Like building houses for poor people or winning the Nobel Peace Prize for being a dumbass.

    Carter: I have been a practising Christian all my life and a deacon and Bible teacher for many years. My faith is a source of strength and comfort to me, as religious beliefs are to hundreds of millions of people around the world. So my decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was painful and difficult.

    It was, however, an unavoidable decision when the convention's leaders, quoting a few carefully selected Bible verses and claiming that Eve was created second to Adam and was responsible for original sin, ordained that women must be "subservient" to their husbands and prohibited from serving as deacons, pastors or chaplains in the military service.

    This view that women are somehow inferior to men is not restricted to one religion or belief. Women are prevented from playing a full and equal role in many faiths. Nor, tragically, does its influence stop at the walls of the church, mosque, synagogue or temple. This discrimination, unjustifiably attributed to a Higher Authority, has provided a reason or excuse for the deprivation of women's equal rights across the world for centuries.

    Ha! What a dumbass! Taking a stand against Bronze-Age-esque discrimination! I'll tell you, that guy never fails to entertain.

    I hope Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin rip him a new legume hole for this one.
