* Sarah Palin has said nothing about the clubbing of innocent baby seals.

* Every year over 200,000 baby seals are clubbed to death for their fur.

* Headline reads “Sarah Palin joins the ranks with seal clubbers!”

I know, I know… that is absolutely asinine. Why would anyone ever make those jumps in logic? Well, apparently one writer over at CRN has decided to do so. Here’s the logic found in this article

* Rob Bell has made few definitive statements about homosexuality.

* The Gay Wisconsin City Cream Choir, an organization that doesn’t claim to follow Christ, is singing songs that are not theologically correct.

* Headline reads “Rob Bell Sing the siren song of the Self”

WHAT!?! How on earth do you make those conclusions and connections!?! It’s absolutely incredible that someone who calls themselves a researcher and a mouth piece for God himself would make such wild and strange statements. If you have some type of vendetta against Rob Bell, then I guess anything and everything pagan could and should be tied to him.

So much for solid research.

???? That was quite a shameless stretch. Although Igrid should copyright “Songsters of Sodom” before someone else grabs it.

If I were a lesbian I’d find “Songsters of Sodom” exclusionary…

The piece at CRN was just plain rambling and incoherent… I think they have stopped trying to make any logical connections and just go straight to the non-sequitur logic.

Rob Bell once past a gay driver on the Interstate and didn’t honk condescendingly. It’s true – I read it on the internets!

Once again the pastor-teacher-discerner fails at all three.

ah, yes…the High Priestess and her pithy oracles. I’ve always wondered how the imams are ok with her speaking in public and never wearing her burqa.

These people are the cultural Taliban…seriously.
