Gentilly Girl- a part of the 99%

Another Reason Jindal Is BAD…

and a rabid cross-wearing and faith-based fruit bat:

“The candidates also differ on gay rights, where Jindal is the only candidate who said he would not renew a 2004 executive order by Blanco barring state agencies and outside contractors from discriminating in their hiring practices on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, political affiliation or disabilities.”

“Jindal said that although he does not believe in discrimination, he fears the executive order’s potential effect on nonprofit groups that contract with the government. Jindal said such groups should be allowed to discriminate in their hiring practices while still receiving tax dollars.

“I’d want to make sure we weren’t driving out faith-based providers from state government, from providing state services,” Jindal said.”

“Jindal, meanwhile, is the only candidate to call for the repeal of hate-crimes laws, which provide added penalties for crimes motivated by animosity toward a particular person or group based on race, age, gender, religion or sexual orientation.”

And of course a statement by a spokesperson from one of Bobby’s loyal supporters showing that excessive religious self-indulgence severely lessens the mind’s capability toward rational thought:

“Gene Mills, director of the Family Forum, said the term “sexual orientation” could be broadly construed to include pedophiles as a protected class of worker in state government.

“If one describes his propensity for minors as a sexual orientation and it says there should not be grounds for firing, then you arguably have a legal dilemma there,” Mills said.”

Sexual orientation is defined as to which sex one is attracted to. Pedophilia refers to one who has sex with children. Almost 98% of reported cases of this sickness is attributed to adults, and most of them are bat-shit crazy religionists. The rest are just sickos.

Homosexuals aren’t into this type of thing… many of them have suffered during their childhoods at the hands of the creatures mentioned above. The last thing on their minds is to commit the same atrocities inflicted upon their bodies.

As for the Trans folk, never would that kind of desire cross our minds, but we are about gender identity and not orientation. Yet all of us are painted with a “heterosexual crime” brush wielded by the hands of morons who ARE NOT in touch with themselves, their identities or their sexualities.

Next thing these nut-jobs will want is to be allowed to burn witches. Oh shit! That’ll be strike three for me! Just bugger me with a telephone pole.

Hidden Titheing For Christian Groups in New Orleans

This is a post I never wanted to write (even though I’ve seen the signs of it for several years), and I must apologize to my friends who are good Christians for what I’m doing right now: I’m attacking the “business” of religion, the subtle ways in which “Christianity” is milking American taxpayers for their own needs, even when the taxpayers are NOT of that faith. This is not an attack on someone’s personal Spiritual beliefs.

In today’s T-P is an article concerning Xavier University and 21 properties that it owns. I’ve been following the circumstances of many house demolitions on Squandered Heritage since the Blog was established. I’m seeing that many of these homes slated for Federally-payed demolition belong to various Christian organizations, and that most of these properties owned by these organizations have been their properties for years and they have let them rot.

They are now demanding their pound of flesh from all of America’s taxpayers for these demolitions, even if some of us are not “believers”. This is NOT right.

Also, consider the loss of property taxes when these “companies” buy up land.

Our property taxes pay for city services that we count on to keep our locale clean and safe. Remember what our city was like prior to the Flood: rotting streets and houses, crap for police protection, decaying playgrounds and a failed education system that should have produced educated people instead of the criminal element that we all have lived with for years. (yes there were crooked politicians, but I’m looking for a bigger culprit.)
That was the cost to all of us in New Orleans when around 60% of the properties here were considered “tax exempt”. Nothing has changed on that front except that now… Federal money is being demanded to tear these places down, and the “companies” reap another harvest of money from those that are not theirs. They don’t have to pay for their failures of purpose. (If they were failures, which I really doubt.)

The answer is that it shouldn’t come out of the purses and wallets of those not involved with those “businesses”. I gain nothing from the product offered, and yet I must pay for their stuffs?

(One glaring example is St. Francis Cabrini Church in Gentilly: expensive to the Arch Diocese to maintain prior to the Flood, and boarded up with no mitigation post-Flood. It was left to the Feds to foot the bill for removing a building that the Archdiocese didn’t want when Holy Cross decided to rebuild there.)

This is the same Archdiocese that owns many properties in the city that have been moth-balled, so to speak, before the infamous Flood.

These parcels should be owned by families and businesses. They should contribute to the common welfare. They could be assets to the community as a whole, not sink-holes that community money disappears into for their “needs” one morning per week. The monies required for the “businesses’” schemes rightfully belong to the PEOPLE that lived here and are trying to rebuild their lives and communities.

These are the people and the causes that the Christ believed in, not the creations of those of power and money.

In the New World the playing field shall be leveled: no business, including the religious ones, will have tax-exempt status. We are a polyglot culture, very diverse, and there is no reason for those of us who aren’t believers to be tithed for that which means nothing to us and gives nothing to the entire community.

This is one of the basic tenets of our Republic, and we must live by that.

The Great Cultural Divide…

Filed under: Aside,New Orleans,Theocracy,Witch Stuff — Tags: , , , — Morwen Madrigal @ 7:21 am

What has happened to country I loved?

Where is the milk of Human kindness?

Who in this world understands the sanctity of Life?

Yesterday an idiot, supposedly upset about not getting an award, killed over 30 kids for his “dishonor”. (Fuck off child… shit happens. Get the fuck over it.)
The freakin’ upset Black youth keep up their reign of retaliation killings here in New Orleans.

A mother fucker killed many women in Montreal because there were too many skirts in the classrooms a few years past.

All of this is because of Patriarchal thought patterns (insanity as I see it). We, the peoples of the world, have allowed the viewpoint of the fucking Mid-eastern desert assholes to invade our thought processes. Their viewpoint is anti-life. They are only about success and death… building a material war chest that they cannot carry into their fictional Heaven. Where
in that thought pattern is the concept of just LIVING and ENJOYING being with other people? To just fucking live? To just accept others as they are?

Ya’s wanna know why the assholes I’m describing hate the “others”? It’s because the shit that they have swallowed “hook, line and sinker” is pure freakin’ crap. It is a toxic soup, and they don’t see it. It is the evil that is sliming it’s way through world cultures, and our planet is going to suffer greatly from this shit. It already is, re: Global warming.
I’m going to lose many readers for the next statements, but it’s time for me to stand as what I am: a Priestess to the Great Goddess. Our form of Spirituality has been around since circa 15,000 BC. Our kind built Old Europe (up for debate, but the Partriarchalists are attacking) millennia before the desert dwellers even came up with a form of writing. (Did you even know that about our cultures? I didn’t think so… your “teachers” have always avoided that fucking fact.)

Did you know that our cities circa 6,000 BC didn’t have protective walls, and that in our last flowering in the Minoan culture prior to the explosion of Santorini didn’t show any expressions or art depicting warfare? (The first recorded act of genocide comes from the Old Testament in regard to Canaan.) We didn’t engage in murder like the Patriarchalists did, and still do (Re: the Bushite and his supporters.). We are kindly people.

Here’s our creed. It’s called the Charge of the Goddess, and this is my version of it. Read it please, and maybe you’ll understand where I’m coming from. I try to live my life by these guidelines.These are the commandments that I have to live by. They are the greatest statements ever made for Human-kind. This is how I view life, and how I try to live.

WTF does this have to do with New Orleans? We here in the Federally Flooded city actually subscribe to the Charge. We live with each other, even with our differences in thought and circumstances. We laugh, dance, cry, and sing with each other. There is no difference between us: we ARE a culture, and for myself… I wouldn’t have anything different.

To share hellos, food, stories, no matter the race or ethnic background of the other folks is what Life is about. We are just folks. (We are just folks here, unlike most of the places I’ve lived in during my life.)
You can scream and bitch that you don’t want to pay to save a “degenerate” culture, but you still need what we provide for your B/S lives. Finally the Goddess can exact payment for your desecration of Her creation. Tell Timmy he has to walk to soccer practice, and the fucking same goes for Tiffany with her ballet classes. And you’d better get on the subway to get to your freakin’ office. (Oh shit! Your fucking corporation can’t afford the environmental controls in your business tower. I “grieve for your torment assholes.)
We are New Orleans, and if you don’t like us: fuck you. We are of the Old Ways, and we are also the Future. (You have no future if you subscribe to the Patriarchal/death model.)
May the Goddess have mercy on your freakin’ souls. We here will forgive you. (That’s just what we do.)

Not that I will forgive… you assholes are killing us here, but you will fail in that. I will stand for the Truth, and that, you mother fucking assholes, you cannot stop. It’s either my words or another’s, and your freakin’ world will die one way or another. It’s far past time for the death of your mindset and that of the Judeo/Christian/Islamic B/S.

My life is dedicated to Humanity, can you say the same?

The Religious Reich Rises Again… Unlike Their Pizza

From Mother Jones we have an article entitled “Hail Mary”. Here is another way that the uber-rich Theocracy is attempting to co-op the Progressive culture of our country.

Here’s an example of the town they are building Ave Maria outside of Naples, FL:

“Now only partially built, the future Ave Maria University sits amid a flat, swampy, and desolate expanse of tomato fields and orange groves 30 miles northeast of Naples. A brawny, 100-foot-tall, arching Gothic oratory is already rising, soon to be flanked by the nation’s largest crucifix and encircled by an entire Catholic community, Ave Maria Town, which will welcome 25,000 residents. In keeping with the tenor of Naples, where the average home costs $1.95 million and Republicans outnumber Democrats by nearly 4-to-1, the town will not be a hive of spartan monks’ cells. Rather, it will feature a mix of “affordable” $175,000 town houses, $665,000 condos, and far more palatial Corinthian-columned manses equipped with lavish swimming pools. The golf course will be “championship” caliber, and the retail core will be at once walkable and pious. “Our plan,” Monaghan told a gathering of Catholics last year (sending constitutional lawyers into a kerfuffle), “is that no adult material will appear on the town’s cable system, and the pharmacy will not sell contraceptives.”

Essentially, Monaghan plans to draw a line in the sand against a trend he deems evil. Even as the rapidly growing church lists right worldwide and a few rock-ribbed Catholic orders—most notably Opus Dei—are surging, American Catholics are becoming ever more progressive. Thirty-seven percent favor an easing of the church’s abortion policies, according to a recent cnn/USA Today/Gallup Poll, and fifty-five percent support the ordination of women. Meanwhile, several Catholic universities—among them Holy Cross and St. Scholastica—have gone so far as to play host to the dread Vagina Monologues.”

“To conservatives, Monaghan is a deep-pocketed savior. Florida governor Jeb Bush, a converted Catholic, made Ave Maria Town a special tax district like Disney World, giving the self-appointed Board of Supervisors (run by Monaghan’s development partner) wideonging powers and exempting the town from state and local laws.”

It seems to me that if you are a member of the Theocracy, ya’s don’t gotta pay most taxes and your parents are pretty rich. This kind of enclave is a great place to indoctrinate and program un-discriminating “thought modules”.

BTW_ this is all being financed by the Founder of Dominos Pizza, Tom Monaghan.

For all of you left-leaners and Progressives: Did you ever think that the pizza, pot, and booze confabs we engaged in for decades might just lead to the destruction of our world view?

Now you’ll understand when I proudly state that I have never eaten a Dominos pizza. I warned you all long ago about this.

Yes, I’m a little late for this post. Crucify me…
