Another landscaper for Christ *snort*

Didn't see this here yet, and I'm almost positive this is a different landscaping co. than was mentioned here a while back.

Found this on a forum - an email someone received regarding business:

Dear Mr. Lord,

I am appreciative of your time on the phone today and glad you contacted us.
I need to tell you that we cannot meet with you because we choose not to

Then you find this on their "about" page:

...For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light and lead the lives of those native-born to the Light.

Then we see the post on his comments forum:

Read all about it here

THEN we see the houston chronicle page on it:


partial text:
"Mrs. Farber kept referring to me and my wife," said Lord. "I told her it was actually my partner."

One-word message: WOW
He said she didn't say anything about that on the phone, but five minutes after they agreed to a Sunday appointment and hung up, he received the e-mail quoted above.

At 9:17 a.m. Lord forwarded the message to his partner, Gary Lackey, with a one-word message: "WOW."

At 10:01, Lackey sent the message to a list of friends, some of whom forwarded it to their friends.

By Thursday, a national Internet discussion was under way.

Yeah... WOW!

The Implosion of Ken Blackwell


From Salon.com

At some point, you almost have to feel sorry for poor Ken Blackwell. Behind by up to 28 points in some polls, the villain of Ohio's 2004 election debacle may really have to steal an election if he wants to win this November's governor's race.

But Blackwell and his supporters have made it awfully hard to sympathize.

At the moment someone -- and we're not saying it was someone in the Blackwell campaign, though it apparently was a Blackwell fan -- is mounting a challenge to Democratic candidate's Ted Strickland's voter registration, charging that Strickland doesn't live where he says he does. And if that's true, then Strickland could potentially be disqualified as an Ohio voter, meaning, under state law, that he would be ineligible to run for governor.

The person who would ultimately be responsible for deciding whether Strickland is eligible to vote, not to mention run?

That would be Ken Blackwell, Ohio secretary of state ... and Republican candidate for governor.

Of course, it might look a little unseemly to disqualify your own opponent, especially when he's so far ahead in the polls. So the Blackwell campaign is taking a cue from recent national headlines and calling Strickland a child molester by proxy. Lately, Blackwell and his supporters have been accusing Strickland of knowingly employing an aide once convicted of exposing himself to two little girls. And that is, well, sort of true. But Strickland says he didn't really know about it; in 1998, he claims, he got an anonymous tip about the 1994 conviction and confronted the aide, who denied any such incident. Then, in 1999, the aide left the office.

But not before the two took a trip to Italy together, apparently -- a trip that right-wing radio host Bill Cunningham described, on Fox's "Hannity & Colmes" Wednesday night, as "a little fun with his 26-year-old boy toy." (Strickland, who is married, denies being gay; lawyers for Cunningham have also denied that he is gay.)

And it's not as if the Blackwell campaign would ever endorse such scurrilous rumor-mongering about its opponent. But it did think that voters deserved to know that those rumors had been discussed in the national media -- so the campaign YouTubed a clip of Cunningham's appearance with Hannity, then posted it to its Web site and e-mailed it to supporters and reporters. And then the campaign invited Cunningham and Hannity to speak at a campaign event.

But none of this has had quite the result the Blackwell campaign might have hoped. Today, appalled by the behavior of Blackwell and his supporters, Findlay, Ohio's Courier newspaper took the rare step of unendorsing a candidate, writing:

"While Blackwell may still get some of our individual votes, he's lost our endorsement, for whatever it's worth. His total nastiness at the Monday debate with his opponent, Democrat Ted Strickland, has proven that he's really not the kind of man we need as our next governor. Personal attacks of dubious accuracy should have no place in a political campaign. As Strickland said, 'Mr. Blackwell, you should be ashamed of yourself.'"

A British crazy Dominionist

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]fragiletender)

Warning, the video may be triggering to some - lots of stuff about hell and lots of Dominionist buzzwords.

The craziness and creepiness of this weirdo Dominionist anti-feminist defies description but it is quite horrifyingly funny in places. I am a little embarrassed that this pathetic little creep is British though - sadly it just goes to show that it's not just Americans who have to deal with this rubbish.

Also, what's all this "right-to-shave women" stuff? Hasn't he been reading the feminist manifesto, sheesh, didn't you know that we're all about not shaving our hairy legs and burning our bras!

To the many Christians on the list who watch this, I'm really very sorry that this guy is nominally on your side. However, he does helpfully put Christians into 3 bands of righteousness and you all undoubtedly fall into the bottom band since you're clearly not his kind of Christian. I'm afraid that apparently you're gonna fry with the rest of sinners because you're not pure and Godly enough - it's so nice to know that God let him into His plans.
