I Believe: The Lie and Delusion of the LDS “Big Step”

The LDS Church’s “Big Step” yesterday was nothing more than a well crafted, sugar coated move to legalize bigotry and discrimination; you know, as long as you sprinkle enough Jesus on your hate. This is poison. This is bad, and the number of people jumping on the Kool-Aid train is not only startling, it’s mind mindbogglingly worse.

Beliefs are tricky. I believe that the LDS Church should pay taxes. I believe that my pals on the left that think something amazing happened yesterday, need to catch the shuttle out of Stepford, and settle into some serious rational, intellectual thinking; casting aside the feel good fiction they’re helping to manufacture.

From the Huffington Post:

The new Mormon position is like that candy with a razor blade inside that your mom warned you about on Halloween. While calling for LGBTQ people to be protected from those who hate them for non-religious reasons (and who are those people, anyway?), they have hidden their real agenda, which is to legalize such discrimination by anyone who claims their prejudice is backed by faith.

I believe that the Republican dumbing down of America was engineered for exactly this kind of thing – an ignorant population, blissfully cheering their own repression, ’cause the pretty talk sounds like nice words, even if they don’t know what the words mean anymore.

I believe that using the Oxford comma is what separates us from the animals.



I remember this one! Pasty Orifices! This one goes back a bit to the time that Brenda and Lisa visited the studio and hilarity ensued. This one also was the beginning of the carryover joke, but you’d have to go back for that one.


This is it, my little beauties! The last show before we, The LEFT Show family, go on “Vacation.” Vacation, sadly, in The LEFT Show world means lots and lots of work to do, getting current shows re-invigorated, a couple of new shows off the ground, and, if we can find just TWO folks to buy in at the CITIZENS RE-UNITED LEVEL, we can get the call in feature up and running. LIVE CALLS!

Lisa, Brenda, and Forrest join your faithful starship captain, J.M. Bell in another round of talking about the talk aboutable! This one is a Wednesday show that, honestly, redefines the definition of the Wednesday Show. Not kidding, either. Funny doesn’t cover it.

Jason is back with a new Bat Sh@t Crazy all about those pesky racists at CPAC.

152 The LEFT Show – Tape Deck Days

Using the not-quite-modern equivalent of a pair of antique tape decks, I have, a great cost of time and effort, managed to piece together a show that sounds almost, kinda like the real thing. Good lord it took for-freaking-ever to edit. Seriously. J.M. Bell, Forrest Shaw, JC Carter, and Melissa Merlot – featuring Ultimate Bob Easton – have gathered together to provide you all with a heapin’ helpin’ of our plain hostility!

Jason Williams has a brand new The Sidetrack for ya’ll!  BITCHIN’ CAMERO!

151 The LEFT Show – Bubblegum and Nazis

It seems weeks since I’ve written that we had a normal show, that I am now of the opinion that I need to set a new normal, and begin to gauge the normalcy of the show on that. So, 3 – 2 – 1 – BANG – New Normal set. Feel better? Me too.

So, this week’s show is, based on the new normal, totally insane and silly. You should have seen the words I was going to use BEFORE I reset the bar. JM Bell, Forrest Show, Ultimate Bob Easton, and AWARD WINNING Melisa Merlot are in the studio in all the inappropriate ways you’ve hopefully come to know and love.

AND! AND! Jason is back with an all new The Sidetrack! No shit? None. At. All.

Our fantastic One Hundred and Fiftieth Show! One Hundred Fifty! Wow! JM Bell, JC Carter, and Forrest Shaw pull out all the stops for this historic episode, ladies and gentlemen! All the stops indeed!
