Christopher. I didn't understand what the fountain pic was saying, but now that you've explained it, I think it definately belongs on this wall.

Loren,
"ramification"??? Now THAT was funny. Is this a "real" atheist dictionary, and if so, where can I peruse it? I still love to quote Ambrose Bierce's bible.

I understood what was meant by the cartoon. I just didn't find it funny.

First, my apologies to everyone who found the "gays and straights" fountains cartoon depressing, or off topic:

Upon reflection about the cartoon I posted earlier, I would like to apologize, because it really was not very "humorous" standing alone and with no further explanation. I do, however, think it is decidedly atheist in it's purpose and theme. When I first saw that cartoon, I was moved by it. It was incredibly concise, but encapsulated the issue with such force, and clarity. The image of the clean "Whites Only" drinking fountains from the south in the 60's next to the "Coloreds Only" fountains which were decidedly less equal. I remember that old picture from the segregated south, and this new "gay version" of the fountains was, I thought, quite brilliant in comparing the two. The first thing I thought of when I saw this "gay and straight" version was how fundamentalists, and especially southern fundamentalists, are the soul (pun intended) driving force behind this insanity, and they are quite completely incapable of seeing the similarities between the two. I thought this cartoon made the bridge between the two in an outstanding manner. Now, I, personally, find it funny, but in a dark, sarcastic, or even better, facetious manner, which is my style.

I really should have explained that when I posted it, but I live out in the country, in small-town, Texas, USA, and I was raised a fundamentalist Christian, so it simply did not occur to me that it needed an explanation when I first posted it, because I forget other people don't live their lives in the settings in which I live mine, and are not accustomed to dealing with fundies en mass, all "up close and personal" every day. I live here, smack dab in the middle of the rusty buckle of the bible belt, so I know that the much favored excuse of every homophobic bigot is Scripture. I am much less certain how many actually have the belief because of scripture, and how many use scripture as a shield from judgment for their bigotry. It's easy, they don't have to think, they don't have to form any coherent ideas or form any rational defenses for their bigotry, they need only point at their preferred "Holy Book" and claim their god told them to do it. This cartoon, to me, pokes a finger in their eyes and says "what you are doing with your bible against gays, is the same thing your father did with his bible against the blacks forty years ago. I just thought the cartoon was brilliant in its clarity, concept delivery, and brevity. I have typed two paragraphs, and can not equal the weight with which this cartoon struck me, and it's a drawing with a mere two words on it. So, that was my intent, and I appologize if it was found off topic or depressing, that certainly was not my intent. I still look at it and chuckle, and say "damn that's funny, I wish IIIIIIIIIII had thought of that one..."

Peace,

Christopher

Mod Post: Regarding appropriate posting topics....

There are plenty of sites on the 'net dedicated to humor, but very, very few devoted specifically to humor with an atheistic or otherwise irreligious theme. Please try to keep things on-topic. If you're reasonably sure that your contribution is appropriate per the (admittedly basic) rules of this community, go ahead and post it. And for the record, Desanctified is a community Mod here. (He plays New Testament to my Old Testament.)

We've had a great run so far, folks--lots of brilliant, funny posts with VERY little drama for a comm this size, so let's try to keep it that way. Score one for reason and rationality!

I found no interest in the Gay fountain thing. I guess there was some kind of humor there I just missed. I am not gay but it just seemed a bit sad to me. However the other joke was funny. I like a good Atheist joke but really, Funny is funny.
