World O' Ignorance: Raani Starnes Edition
"I feel like I've been a victim of recipe rape." - Raani Starnes
Let's be honest (just this once, and never again. I promise); One Star Wednesday was getting a little old. One thing that never gets old; however, is snickering at the hedgeborn Neanderthinkers who roam this great land of ours in pretty much the same manner in which those zombies roamed the shopping mall in Dawn of the dead. So that's exactly what we'll be doing every Wednesday until The Raptures (which I've been assured will take place any day now)
This week's guest Ignoroid is Raani Starnes who posts a blog called "Homeschooling Hints". The spotlight of ignorance recently shined on Raani when 2000 Years of Deception stumbled upon her post about "gay-friendly" schools. It's time don your pressure suits, brave fellow Ignornauts, because we're about to open the hatch and step into the cold vacuum that is the mind of Raani Starnes :
Although I'm against the special accommodations, perhaps this new trend of segregation will protect straight kids from these predators. With any luck, some radical will blow up the gay school. No, I'm not condoning vigilantism--I'm merely saying that it would be poetic justice.
And it's nut like that little golden nugget o' ignorance was sitting all alone in a forest of reason; no, "Homeschooling Hints" (What about Trailerschooling Tips?) is veritable Rift Valley of Fundie weirdness which the vast Leakey family [make a contribution while you're there, cheapskates] of blogosphere Igno-Archeologists have only just begun to descend upon. On a recent dig, the intrepid Ethno-ignorologists at The Raytractors discovered that Raani believes the moon landings were faked (she also states that her grandparents had come to this same conclusion, adding fuel to the hereditary stupidity debate), which means it's once again time for another installment of Buzz Aldrin punches a guy in the face
Not to be outdone, The Anonymous Institute for Advanced Ignorance Studies spent nearly ten entire minutes digging around "Homeschooling Hints" before chancing upon two remarkable posts. The first, titled "Once upon a time, there was a wicked crone..." details a how one church's Thanksgiving potluck dinner descended into a cesspool of backstabbing and recipe rape. If you enjoyed that, be sure to read our second discovery: "Update on the Wicked Crone Post", in which Raani explores the Christian concept of REVENGE.
