StBarbara

I am totally starting a novena in honor of St. Barbara* tonight, in hopes that Steven Crowder will get a nasty case of HEMORRHOIDS.  If this happens, Steven, let me know, since one of the few things we both agree on is that incontrovertible proof of the existence of a benevolent God is sorely needed.

Since few things please me more than nerding out over the minute differences between various Christian sects, I will say that Crowder is right that it’s incorrect to call Jefferson a Deist, though.  It’s more accurate to say he was a lapsed Anglican/Episcopalian who sympathized with both the Deists and the Unitarians.  

I am perturbed by Crowder’s insistence on the phrase “Judeo-Christian values,” probably the most overused and meaningless phrase in popular religious discourse.  Crowder feels compelled to tack the “Judeo” on there because he knows damn well that Jefferson most likely did not believe in the divinity of Christ, nor salvation through his resurrection.  He was a Christian only in the most vague, watered-down sense.  He was a Christian like a U2 song is a religious hymn.  

Also, Crowder engages in a common tactic by pointing out that the phrase “separation of Church and State” is not in the Constitution.  He yammers on about how it’s from a letter of Jefferson’s, but, more to the point, it’s used over and over and over and over in Establishment clause jurisprudence, from its inception. 

So remember, Steven Crowder, that burning sensation in your asshole is the POWER OF PRAYER.
