Cognitive dissonance time!

January 31, 2017 at 10:45 am (Stuff that Bugs Me Right Now)

In the local paper this weekend, there was an advertisement placed by a “church” celebrating Trump’s election and reading, in part, “We are very thankful and rejoice that the Obama nightmare is no more.”

"Thank heavens our long, nationwide nightmare of equality and prosperity is finally at an end!"

“Thank heavens our long, nationwide nightmare of equality and prosperity is finally at an end!”

By the way, if you’re interested, you can purchase the minister’s book on demons.

Yup, pretty sure he means literal demons, because DON'T GO TO THIS CHURCH THE MINISTER IS INSANE!

And in today’s paper, there was a letter to the editor from a woman identifying herself as a “proud” member of the “basket of deplorables” who is horrified at the hatred in the hearts of the people marching for human rights.

Says the woman who supports a man who has aligned himself with white supremacists and LITERAL NAZIS.

    People like that make me feel too many unpleasant things all at once: nausea, disbelief, confusion, anger, sadness. But mostly they just make my head hurt.

      The head pain is probably the result of your brain trying to flee the horror of what it has just read.

        I have this unfortunate condition where I try to understand where people are coming from, even when I disagree with them and know that they’re wrong. But some of these people are suffering such severe cognitive dissonance, I don’t understand how their skulls don’t rupture.

    Uhm… demons (and witches, etc) are in the Bible. Every non-cherry-picking Christian believes this…

      Well, please, by all means, go and purchase his book, then, and do battle with the literal demons that are affecting your daily life.
