The Good Lord giveth ... and giveth ... and giveth ...


Via ACR, we learn that while other groups are going wanting, there's always some cash lying around if you have the right attitude:



Almost a half mil for Bible translation. I'm sure Canada's Blogging Tories will be all over this egregiously inappropriate misuse of public funds. Any minute now. Yessir, any minute now ...

OH, MY. Some seriously patronizing sanctimony here. Some folks sure are protective of their tax dollars. Sometimes.

What possible language is left to translate it into?

Purpose: Capacity Building for Public School

I know some of our northern Canadians that would love a half mil for "Capacity Building for Public School"

You've got it all wrong. They didn't cut funding for pride because it is some fag fest. Look, they cut funding for some other fest too! Shame on you thinking they were just homophobic.

English for one. The current translations all have a liberal bias, dontcha know.

For example, they conveniently omit Jesus demanding to see proof of insurance before healing the sick. And they make it sound like the apostles just sat around talking with Jesus, when they were all working at their right to work jobs. Then there's the forty days in the wilderness, which some medieval lefty decided did not need to be titled "Jesus Goes Galt".

"What possible language is left to translate it into?" asks Cameron Campbell. Well, I've yet to encounter a Bible that is written in the tortured, labyrinthian English Allan Carty uses in his NorthWestTory blog.

Example: "I don't honestly believe anyone who pays taxes (that's everyone), wants their money used for this. This is like not having no choice."

Wycliffe are evangelicals. Their mission:
"To empower indigenous people worldwide for spiritual, personal and social growth through Bible translation and other language-related ministries."

So nice that they can do this with my tax dollars. I would have preferred the Gay Pride Parade get the money.

I still blowed away by the finding out yesterday that the geography of Canada is in The Bible. Psalms 72: 8-9. http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/article/807640--timing-of-book-s-release-downright-divine HT CC. This puts Canada on the same footing as Israel. Now I understand the whole Canadian approach the Anti-Semitism.

C'mon, don't you know that gays and blacks are bad but the Conservatives would rather encourage pedophile bible thumpers. Maybe we can get Vic (you know that wife cheating fucking machine who gets people pregnant out of wedlock) to lecture us on morality.

I find it odd that the blogging idiots are all over the CBC for perceived slights but are not mad at the CBC flying down to Mexico to go after a Canadian who received a pardon.
I'm still surprised that they are defending cokehead Jaffer.....
