Jerry Coyne, who runs the blog:Why Evolution is True, recently ran some articles on the christian homeschoolers who don't teach their kids the Theory of Evolution and the textbook market that has sprung up to serve their desire to hide reality from their children.
A not so atypical e-mail:
Hey Jerry Coyne fuck you. You evolution faggot. Darwinism and evolution are the biggest pile of shit lies ever made on the face of GODS green earth. People in the 1800’s thought Darwin was a dumb ass fucking lunatic. Home school books are lying to children? On no you son of a bitch you and all these liberal piece of shit scum bag evolutionists are lying to children and every public school in the world. . . So go fuck your self or an ape and evolve some grotesque ape kids you loser fuck. I beat the shit out of people like you, you cock smoking douche nozzle.As I've mentioned before, am a CPA in Nashville, Tennessee -- the home of the Christian Music Industry. Like many CPAs, I used to have a fairly large presence with some small record labels, some stars, some major groups, some CMI executives... Now I'm down to one band and a couple of small labels that I just couldn't possibly give a crap about...
My experience has been that the industry is, uniformly, hypocritical and money grubbing. Sure, the stars all talk about doing it for the love of Jesus and spreading love and joy to the people, but it's clearly about the love of money.
The two greatest offenses that set my teeth on edge, are, first, they don't pay their bills and call Jesus as their get-out-of-deadbeat card. That is, they won't pay a bill and will tell you, flat to your face, that Jesus said to not pay it, or to pay less... Considering how many times it happens, and Jesus tells them this (in my direct experience) when the artist buys a new Mercedes, goes on a Caribbean vacation, world cruse, buys a new mansion, has to pay hush-money to the mistress or blows $65,000 on clothes for the year... I find it impossible to believe that Jesus is micro-managing their finances and sticking it to vendors, sidemen, etc., is the course of action Jesus recommended.
Second, for all their "the band is my family in the Lord" they treat their band members like crap. First, by underpaying them. Second, by pretending that the sidemen are "independent contractors," which puts an extra 7.65% tax on their earnings (the employer side of employment taxes). My ass if they're "independent contractors," no reputable band in any other part of the music industry treats its hired sidemen as "independent contractors" in this day and age. Only the dirtballs in the Christian Music Industry...
Anyway, when I see/hear a Christian being all Mr./Ms. Piety... I know he/she has a secret self. Like the asshole above... Who is, very much, part and parcel of the vile, right-wing/evangelical section of Christianity.
