Oh my!

Fundie lady politician from Oklahoma acting up!

Nothing says "epic fail" like an attempt to blame our economic woes on all the godless heathen and abortion doctors and pornographers!

Wait, I've been inspired to dig up another link. Give me a sec!

Meh, I can't find a readable pic of a poster for a Mary Daly rally. I used to see them once/month in Cambridge. They expressed the same idea as the Oklahoma lady (i.e., "people I disagree with should be punished by GOD(DESS)!!!"), with even some overlaps on the list of villains: "Come join theologian Mary Daly as she casts a spell against the patriarchal oppressors WOMBYN - especially the Catholic church, US Government, and pornographers!!"

Mary Daly. Now there's a name I haven't heard since seminary.

That is the funny part, isn't it - how famous one can become, if one only considers a small enough group. I am much better known among zombie enthusiasts than Dr Daly, while she is much better known among seminarians at a certain kind of divinity school than I. I suppose it all works out, in a way!

And I've forgotten - where did you go to school?

The two of you could collaborate someday and write a feminist theology zombie novel. (Would it be feminist zombies eating the brains of the patriarchy, or would the forces of patriarchy reveal their true nature by becoming zombies?)

Her battleaxe would surely make a fab anti-zombie weapon!

Hm. I wonder if the feminist pornographers of San Francisco will fall under her spell.

And now that I've thought about it for two seconds, this would make a great zombie story. Say her spell succeeds. All oppressive men become zombies. The clutching hands, the disconcerting noises, the mindless desire... my god, the oppressors haven't changed at all!

...treating womean as "meat"

I fear neither Dr Daly nor the targets of her ire ever quite sees the humor in it all.
