Bill Maher makes my heart sour.

Let Ms. Wilkinson give you the low-down

on what’s goin’ on with the fool pictured above:

Recap:

1)  I believe in free speech.

2)  I haven’t seen a ton of Billy’s stuff, but what I have seen is almost always disrespectful, sacrilegious, discriminatory, inappropriate, racist, unkind, profane, rude, obscene, and just overall mean.

3)  I don’t hate anyone except for Satan (although Maher makes me reconsider somewhat…).

4)  I validate people who have concerns with organized religion (or otherwise doctrinally strict life philosophies).  Read more here about this:

5)  I don’t think all atheists are bad people (read more here!).

6)  I VERY MUCH think that Bill Maher is a bad person (and I don’t make comments like that very often!).

7)  I see connections between Bill Maher and the Book of Mormon figure Korihor.

8)  There are public figures who poke fun at Mormonism (and other religious/cultural groups as well) in a way that is NOT unkind or belittling.  Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart are the ones that come to mind at the moment.

9)  If you’re dying for a television fix of a gray-haired man, may I suggest checkin’ out Anderson Cooper?  I am a fan of his stuff. And I even wrote him a lil’ poem!

10)  We may find others’ (religious) beliefs (very) odd, but still we must find the humanity and decency to show some level of respect, even if we do not (fully) agree.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

I’m not worried about (permanent) damage that Mr. Bill Maher will do to the image of the LDS Church (cuz he can’t!).  No way.  We’re here to say.  And he’ll be left to his own sad life.  (Sorry if this is a lil’ mean-spirited).

None will molest them from morn until ev’n.

Still, Billy Boy bugs me so much so that I devoted

(a lot of) time and effort to writing this post.

Come on now, Maher. Change yo wayz a lil’ bit, huh?

BILL MAHER PUTS A SOUR taste in my mouth…

and if I’m gonna have those particular taste-buds activated,

I’d muuuuuch rather it be because of something like this:

PS.  I understand that his last name does not naturally rhyme with the word “sour;”  I twisted it for a stylistic purpose.   Lots of artists do this kind of thing (slant rhyme is the exact term).  John Mayer does it in his song “You’re No One ’til Someone Lets You Down.”  Check it stat!

proud girl!

PPS.  Not gonna lie, I’m quite proud of this post and its plethora of literary/journalistic/celebrity/religious/historical references.  Go count ’em!

Anderson Cooper

is really quite SOOPER (super, btw)!

I am a fandy

of this guy Andy

He stood up for the Mormon Church

when a certain famous Reverend was being kinda a jerk..

Anderson’s classy, smart, and occasionally witty

And his blue eyes are oh so pretty

Yes I’m aware that he is gay

So don’t think I’m trying to get him to sway

his choice or anything, I just think

with eyes like ours, we should hardly ever blink!

*Click on that above link and watch a great journalist be classy and respectful, but still call someone out who is completely wrong!

*It all comes back to “The Yellow Wallpaper.”

He may be angry, obscene, and even hateful at times….

but there is no denying that Eminem has incredible talent, especially when it comes to wordplay.  He also does a pretty good job articulating his beliefs about words and language to Anderson Cooper.  This clip is intelligent and fascinating.  Check it!

Teachers, take note (do I say that too much?)!
