Conversion via Twitter

quote [ Phelps-Roper spent the summer and the fall in an existential spiral. She would conclude that everything about Westboro’s doctrine was wrong, only to be seized with terror that these thoughts were a test from God, and she was failing. “You literally feel insane,” she said. Eventually, her doubts won out. “I just couldn’t keep up the charade,” she said. “I couldn’t bring myself to do the things we were doing and say the things we were saying.” ]

I've been enjoying not reading anything new about the Westboro Baptist folks for some time now, then I read this and enjoyed it just as much.

It's nice to see that sometimes the person you're arguing with on the internet isn't ignoring you.

Reading that was very soothing, like a mental antacid.

Those comics the New Yorker runs are the dullest goddamn things I have ever seen.

Every New Yorker cartoon has a generic caption that you can plug in on almost every one and it would be funnier than what's already there. That caption is "Christ, what an asshole!"

Try it.

That's a bit like reading the answer to the lame Christmas cracker jokes and adding, "in bed" at the end. But IMO some of the New Yorker cartoons are genuinely funny.

"Nobody wants to see that, Jesus" said Saint Peter.

I'm honestly kind of amazed that the church would let her go.
