Insanity 101: The Mystery Animal Deaths Explained (or: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Fringe Crackpots but Were Afraid to Ask...)

Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh boy. My Blog Pals, take a moment to watch this video if you need a daily dose of pure lunacy. In it, Cindy Jacobs, a religious fanatic, blames the recent rash of mysterious animal deaths on the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell policies. It is well worth the two minutes and eleven seconds it takes to watch it.

Many of us who support animal rights are also avid human rights supporters. I personally rejoiced when the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010 was passed in Congress. Now it appears that the military is heading in a welcome direction, and that gays and lesbians in the armed forces will no longer be forced to go underground when it comes to their personal lives.

Unfortunately, some people disagree. Cindy Jacobs is one.

Fanaticism takes on lots of forms. Sometimes, it comes in the form of ideology. Sometimes, it manifests itself as violence. And here it comes in the form of a nutty little sermon, full of all kinds of loopy observations. It really has to be seen to be believed.

Sometimes I fool myself into thinking that people like this are only a bad figment of my imagination. Turns out they're all too real...

  1. I submit that Ms. Jacobs provides great support for the notion that human speech is a skill not necessarily worth acquiring.

    She also lends support to the growing body of evidence that the average rabbit, cat, skunk, dog, etc. possesses more wisdom than 99% of the members of the human species.
