Ender’s Game is one of my favorite books from high school.

The movie looks pretty rad.

I love Harrison Ford.

I like shiny things and smart science-fiction.

And yet, I’m not going to go see Ender’s Game.

Orson Scott Card has toxic politics shot through with not merely a thread but a full-on threaded steel cable of bigotry and ignorance. And so, I’m gonna boycott the film…

This article sums up my personal feelings on this issue quite well.  Continue reading here.


Disgusting Christian Propaganda

First of all, what happened to their supposedly all-powerful ‘god’? Really? A simple prohibition, which doesn’t actually exist since any student is permitted to pray whenever they like, can keep him from protecting his children from these atrocities? You can’t have much real faith in your god if you believe that bullshit. Really now.

Second, the religious nut-job(s) responsible for this design should be ashamed of themselves for using the tragedies of others to make a profit. However, anyone who’s been paying attention to religious institutions and their representatives in the recent years alone is likely to be unsurprised by this filthy enterprise. We all know that the things religious nuts tell us all we should feel guilty for or that we’re going to hell for doing are all perfectly acceptable if the religious asshole, themself, participates. Apparently, they’re just not allowed to watch.

I forgot precisely how much the Christian religion disgusted me until I saw this shirt. Thanks for that reminder, bigoted t-shirt creator. Around this time of year, in particular, I needed it.
*Edit: Oh, I apparently need to clarify since kids aren’t permitted to pray out loud in class while their instructor is giving a lesson. Pointless, really, but I guess I should point out that I’m not allowed to open my mouth as a pagan in class either unless it somehow contributes to the lesson being given. Any Christian disagreeing with this prohibition is just spitting out egotistical, self-important, and self-righteous prattle to say that their individualistic prayers are somehow more important than the knowledge being imparted to the REST OF THE CLASS AS A WHOLE.
