Title Yard Sale – Read the following short story, and then pick the title you feel best applies.  No extra charge.

IRONY
DICHOTOMY
REDNECKS IN TRAINING
COGNITIVE DISSONANCE
IMAGINE BUM-PING INTO YOU

****

SAME SEX MARRIAGE??!  Over my dead body – better still, over theirs.

These filthy fags parading around – “I have a job.  I pay taxes. I want the same civil rights as everybody else.”  They’re worse than the niggers and Jews.  Niggers are just weak-minded jungle bunnies.  They don’t know no better.  The Jews may be Christ-killing heathens – but these perverts are sinners.

Civil rights??  I say cut their junk off and throw them all in jail.

Here we are at the church.  Take a look at the sign Bobby.  What’s Reverend Larkin’s sermon theme today?  “Love One Another.”  Awww – that’s nice.

    I’ve a better title to offer: “The Unfortunate Truth About Christianity”.
    Good piece.

    Edgy, Archon. Blends well with your recent rants.

    So true. Very effective… I’d chose a title with pride in it. Isn’t that one of the seven deadly sins? And these self-righteous people are so full of it, feeling better than everyone else…

    I go with Dichotomy. Although I may see it, how did the image trigger this story?

      As BrainRants suggests, start back at ‘People of Privilege’, see a picture of two, similar, large, powerful, (male?) objects firmly coupling in public….after that it’s just a spiral down into the abyss that is Archon’s mind. 🙄

      I was gonna say, “What’s the worst that can happen? Somebody won’t read it?”, but, some folks won’t GET it – and some people won’t believe it. I might get flamed, but I know how to turn the computer off, or, the wife has been teaching me how to ignore other people – at least I think that’s what she’s doing. 😉 😕

  5. I forgot a title, but I always color outside the lines anyway so I’ll propose a title rather than pick one from the list: Westboro Lovin’.

    Alan Turin, the British code breaker, has received a posthumous pardon for being sent to jail for ‘gross indecency’ (actually a consensual affair) where he was chemically messed about with.
    Now there’s a dichotomy – apart from the obvious one that he’s dead and it’s of no use to him, it ignores all the other people who suffered the same way and didn’t happen to be geniuses and be deemed worthy of a pardon.
    Gutsy piece indeed! Like it.

      The law is absolutely fair. It’s just as illegal for a millionaire to sleep on a park bench as it is for a homeless person. 😦
      It is amazing what a pile of money or political power lets you get away with. Just look at the Kardashians….on second thought??? 😯
      I liked “messed about with”, because I ‘speak British’ from watching too much imported English telly. I just enjoyed your buttercups when I checked your ‘about ‘ page for your address. 🙂

    My pick: none of the above, but rather “tribalism”. Also, I’m sorry to say, human nature for most humans.

  8. I liked COGNITIVE DISSONANCE. That is, providing this character has a full brain he’s actually using. Well done, Archon. 🙂 — Suzanne

      He’s just using it to warehouse all his hates and prejudices. I’ve run into a couple like him recently, so – Monkey See, Monkey React – I decided to subtly state the fact. Thanx. 🙂

  9. Dear Archon,

    I suggest LOVE THY NEIGHBOR UNLESS HE’S NOT LIKE YOU.

    Shalom,
