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…

Screen shot 2013-10-11 at 9.38.55 PM

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  Not gonna lie, I’m quite proud of this post and its plethora of literary/journalistic/celebrity/religious/historical references.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

Lena Dunham and her friends would do well to stop being such GIRLS (and be ladies instead!)

Screen shot 2013-10-02 at 8.21.22 AM   Screen shot 2013-10-02 at 8.20.09 AM

       The HBO series “Girls” has done remarkably well in it’s short time of syndication.  Creator/producer/director/star Lena Dunham has gained critical acclaim for her series, which purports to depict a realistic look into the gritty lives of 4 young women living in a less than perfect urban New York setting.

        I personally am all about the truth and very much appreciate the idea of realism.  However, this show REALLY rubs me the wrong way.  No matter what anyone tells you, the show is filthy and is all about sex.  Watch the following video for me to expound upon these ideas.  And also let me tell you some about a girl who is as real as real can be (thanks Garth Brooks!), but is still very much a lady!  As is always the case, the video is safe for all eyes and ears!

friends, I really do usually try to keep it to 2 minutes,

but I just couldn’t help it!

*I meant to say you will gain more than you miss by NOT watching that show…

Recap Schmecap:

1)  I believe in free speech.

2)  I have watched a few episodes of “Girls” (but I swear on my favorite lip gloss that I will never watch another one).

3)  Sin is Sin

4)  Wickedness NEVER was Happiness (Alma 41:10)

5)  Don’t disregard a truth/ claim I make just cuz it’s churchy and you might not be into that kind of thing…

5)  I don’t hate anyone (except for Satan)

6)  I think that show has some good thematic substance, but the junk outweighs it BIG TIME.

7) Katherine doesn’t always look show-stoppin hot, but still keeps her clothes on…

8)  Engaging in the sorts of behaviors that show portrays will NOT solve your problems.  It will multiply them!

9)  I never intend to be preachy or unkind or judgmental, but I ain’t afraid to have a strong opinion (duh!)

10)  The devil twists truth for his own purposes (William Shakespeare, “The Merchant of Venice”)

1,000 Reasons to Say NO!!!! (to a dumb gray book)

And though there are obviously a lot of people reading that filthy book, there are ALSO young people who know better:

And back to the book.  Let me just say:

*I did not read it

*I will not read it

*I believe in free speech

*sin is sin

*Jesus loves everyone

*you sow what you reap

*I could go on and on and on and on

*I will in other posts

If you believe what I am saying here, please pass this along.  Or better yet, CREATE YOUR OWN REVIEW!

and maybe wear some mascara even though I didn’t…
