The Snake Handler

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

Very apt depiction of David Fowler and his group of pharisees who are determined to be the Morals Monitor for TN. The righteous, and everyone else, have a LOT to fear from these Ayatollah wannabes.

"9 comments" but I only see 2?

I'd never heard of the Family Action Council of Tennessee. Their website is and I favor what they favor. David Fowler, former excellent state senator, seems to be one of their leaders, or maybe it's his outfit.

Vanderbilt won't force sororities to admit men nor fraternities to admit women, but it wants Christian campus groups to admit non-Christians. Would it force "gay" student groups to admit Family Action Council students?

Another day = another law. It would take too much political capital to address the causes, such as paying poor people to breed children they can't support, lack of real sex ed, access to contraceptives, so instead lets go after the professionals who are left dealing with unruly and uneducated parents. Fine the teacher if anyone holds hands and don't say gay. Throw in a little abstinance only and we will be in mayberry by the end of the session. And don't forget to outlaw makeup/jewelry since it leads to imorral behavior. Oh sorry wrong denomination. Just go after the saggin pants that'll please the elderly/white voting bloc.

NOMADIC: "roaming about from place to place aimlessly, frequently, or without a fixed pattern of movement."

I suppose Bennett got a GED before graduating from the University of North Alabama (AKA Sand Mountain University).

Oh Joe, you are just like the rest of your ilk, you pick and choose portions of the truth as it serves you. You left out the first part of that sentence. Let's tell the rest of the story, and correctly I might add. "Growing up the son of a career army officer, he led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1976 from S. R. Butler High School in Huntsville, Alabama."

Yes, Fowler seems to be a master at preying on those who haven’t read the New Testament.

What an asinine comment, jp! Just WTF is your point? According to today's wacked out ultra conservative mindset, if a liberal gets a degree from Harvard he's an eliist snob but if he gets one from a small unknown school or takes a less traditional route to his education he's an abject failure? My god, you gd conservatives and your idiocy. You're so full of hate and bile and bias you must lie in bed at night just thinking about all the different ways you can hate a liberal. Pathetic.

Speaking of David Fowler, snake handlers, and con-artists, I noted another member of this group was quoted in the news a couple of days ago:

"American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer poked fun at Mitt Romney today on Focal Point following the resignation of Richard Grenell, an openly gay Romney spokesman on security issues who Fischer and other Religious Right leaders wanted ousted from the campaign:

FISHER: “Let me ask you this question, people have raised this question, if Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, coopted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese? How is he going to stand up to Putin? How is he going to stand up to North Korea if he can be pushed around by a yokel like me? I don’t think Romney is realizing the doubts that this begins to raise about his leadership. I don’t think for one minute that Mitt Romney did not want this guy gone; he wanted this guy gone because there was not one word of defense, not a peep, from the Romney camp to defend him. They just went absolutely stone cold silent, they put a bag over Grenell’s head, they even asked him to organize this phone conference and they didn’t even let him speak at the conference that he organized.”

I bet Clay Bennett knows absolutely nothing about joepulitzer, since joepulitzer has never done anything in his life that could be deemed remarkable.

There is a great commentary on Smart City Memphis about “Big Liars” and "Big Bullies:

“The folks at the Family Action Council of Tennessee suggest that they stand like a rock on their principles. That shouldn’t be particularly hard for them since it’s a rock that they’ve climbed out from under.

Even in an era where we have all become accustomed to the “Big Lie” as political strategy, the Family Action Council deserves the title as “Big Liars.” It’s not just that they spew hatred and prejudice, which were never values in the families we know, but that they so proudly lie about the fact while preying on people clinging to the belief that there is always a scapegoat who can be blamed for their frustration with a changing world.

It’s tempting just to ignore them, because it’s inarguable that they’re on the wrong side of history. Heck, they’re even on the wrong side of Christianity as they selectively obsess on a verse in the Bible to magnify their fixation on homosexuals while absolving themselves from any Biblical sanctions about divorce and other heterosexual behaviors.

Their political base is dying out, replaced by more tolerant and more moderate young people who aren’t interested in vilifying women who control their own bodies, objectifying homosexuals as if they are the cause of all that ails America, and condoning bullies in our schools. In a world known more and more by diversity and tolerance, they cling to the world where white men make the rules and decide who is a winner and who is a loser.”

There's a very interesting article in the Chattanooga free press (yes, this paper) today from Walter Williams (page f5). "It turns out that seven of the ten wealthiest counties in the Washington area voted overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008. These liberals portray themselves as 99 percenters when they are really 1 percenters".

You just have to shake your head sometimes. .

They grasp for their childhoods because they have been left behind as society advances. Their narrow little worlds are threatened by evolution. They know they are becoming OBSOLETE. Conservatism is the rufuge of the old and weak, a place for those who live in fear.

Marriage will be obsolete in a couple generations as the numbers indicate.

The number of self identified christians has been declining for years and is being replaced by personal spirituality or no religion at all..

They will kick and scream the whole way down but down is where they go. You can't stop life from happening no matter how many laws you pass to try. America has been and always will be a progressive nation and if it ceases to be progressive, it will die.

TOES: Being "wealthy" doesn't make you a one percenter - there are a lot of "wealthy" people out there who are no better off than occupy campers - and deep down they know it. Why? because their "wealth" and everything they have is floating on a sea of debt. And the country is in the same sad state - and it's not Obama's fault, either. The problem has existed ever since the creation of the Federal Reserve.

Oh, and Jack, Bush sent America "down the tubes" in 2007 and we have been clawing our way back up since then - with absolutely NO help from the clueless clowns in the right wing circus who have wasted their salaries since the last inauguration day in efforts to destroy our president rather than help our country. The voters are not stupid - they see that situation more clearly every day and as unemployment continues to go down, President Obama's poll numbers will continue to rise. I guess that raspy sound we hear is all you right wingers gnashing your teeth.

May 6, 2012 at 12:29 p.m.

He’s a smug, Harvard-trained elitist who doesn’t get how regular Americans are struggling these days. More extreme than he lets on, he’s keeping his true agenda hidden until after Election Day. He’s clueless about fixing the economy, over his head on foreign policy. Who is he?

Your answer will help decide the next president. ap news 5-6-12

This is our choice 6 in one hand 1/2 dozen in the other. Just keep rootin for your team and don't dig to deep because the issues are to complex for you to understand. But thanks for the .25% off groceries. I notice you put in a little somethin somethin for yourselves with that gift tax/estate tax adjustment you know , for the job creators. But hey, I am not against keeping what your family has earned and already paid taxes on, I just think it's funny you put it in with a .25% reduction on food tax so you could pretend you were helping me. It makes for a great sound bite come election time. Helped struggling working class families put food on the table.

If I'm $1,000 in debt, how will spending $5,000 more get me out of debt? Also, what IS Obama's plan to get us out of debt? We hear a lot about college tuition, war on women, class warfare and other non-debt issues, where's his plan to get us free from debt? We're not in debt because we don't tax the rich enough, we're in debt because the liberals and Obama are on a vote shopping binge with the national credit card. How is raising tax rates on the rich going to help anybody in Chattanooga? Or anywhere else for that matter? It might make you liberals "feel good" about yourselves but it does absolutely NOTHING to solve the huge economic problems we face.

Bennett's on target again. There's not a nickels worth of difference between what the Family Action Council of Tennessee has initiated and pure unfettered Sharia Law. When you get far enough to the right, there's nothing left to be but afraid. All extreme fundamentalists of every religion fear the same thing- An open mind. I raised my children to think for themselves, to trust their own judgment and to take responsibility for their mistakes.

JDavid said: "Bennett's on target again. There's not a nickels worth of difference between what the Family Action Council of Tennessee has initiated and pure unfettered Sharia Law."

Indeed, JDavid. The most recent attack by extremist David Fowler and his "Family Action" Council is against Vanderbilt University and its “all comers” non-discrimination policy, which as I understand it has been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.

I find Vanderbilt’s “all-comers” policy to be fair and reasonable. To be recognized as an official student organization, the organization cannot discriminate against any student who wants to participate. Organizations without official recognition can limit membership and can engage in campus activity, but they must do so with their own funds rather than university funds.

Needless to say, David Fowler and his Family Action Council disagree:

“A politically influential conservative group is urging supporters to flood Gov. Bill Haslam’s phone lines in opposition to Haslam’s planned veto of a bill aimed at pressuring Vanderbilt University to drop an anti-discrimination policy affecting campus groups.

The “all-comers” policy requires student groups at the prestigious private university to let any interested students join and run for office. Several religious organizations have waged a high-profile battle to overturn it.

Family Action Council of Tennessee President David Fowler, a former Republican state senator who represented part of Hamilton County, made the appeal through an email alert today.”

Obastard said last week the Taliban was weakening. Oh I forgot. Obastard is a pathological liar.


As 10,000 U.S. troops prepare to leave the Afghanistan over the next six months, two top lawmakers, just back from a trip to the region, on the House and Senate Intelligence Committee said they are concerned that the Taliban is growing stronger. "I think we both say that what we found is the Taliban is stronger," Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said on CNN's "State of the Union." Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, agreed with her assessment.

rick1 said...

joneses, don't forget the Obama Administration said the Taliban was not our enemy. This is from an interview Biden did with Newsweek which lays out the Obama Administration's view on the Taliban:

"Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical. There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy because it threatens U.S. interests. If, in fact, the Taliban is able to collapse the existing government, which is cooperating with us in keeping the bad guys from being able to do damage to us, then that becomes a problem for us."

dude, The last I checked we were still at war with the Taliban as they are still killing our military men and women, but The Obama Adminstration says they are not the enemy. Please explain that to our Military men and women. Go ahead and tell our men and women of the Military, Obama is not a traitor when he puts his re election ahead of the lives of their fellow soldiers you were killed by the Taliban and winning a re election is more important then willing the war.

"Sen. John McCain endorsed U.S. talks with the Taliban this morning on “This Week,” setting himself at odds with Mitt Romney, who he is backing for the GOP presidential nomination. “I think it’s important to have talks wherever you can,” said McCain, R-Ariz., speaking from Afghanistan. ” We have to have an outcome on the battlefield…that would motivate a successful conclusion.” -Feb. 19, 2012

The Taliban are miserable, hellish bastards. Their repressive, backward-thinking, Dark Ages mentality is reprehensible. But they are NOT the reason we went to Afghanistan in the first place and they are NOT the reason we should be there now. They and al-qaeda are not one and the same. Al-qaeda has been rendered all but impotent and we should get the hell out of Afghanistan and Iraq The Taliban will probably have their way when we leave and they will oppress the country, especially the women, like they did before. But the reason they are fighting us now is because we are there in the first place, OCCUPYING their country! If a military force from another country were here in America, occupying our land and killing our own people, most of us would be taking up arms against our occupiers too. You people who base your decisions on raw emotion and say stupid things like, "dude, The last I checked we were still at war with the Taliban as they are still killing our military men and women," well, there is no accounting for people who have sh#t for brains. I must be stupid myself for even bothering to try to reason with some of you unreasoning idiots on here.

And this is exactly what the liberal/dummycrats want in America. The end result is we will all live in poverty with the exception of the ruling class that will include the likes of obastard, pelosi, kennedys, reids, gores, clintons and the rest of the ones that have chosen to rape the taxpayers of their money so they can live a lavish life style while demonizing us for wanting the same thing.

France, 5/7/12

President Nicolas Sarkozy lost to Socialist candidate Francois Hollande, who had criticized the country's austerity program and wants to boost government spending.

If there is a continued backlash against austerity policies, Hollande would face additional pressure to boost spending sharply. That could lead to further downgrades of France's credit rating and kick off a fresh wave of crisis fears, destabilizing global markets.

The very idea of a so-called "Christian" group opposing admission of non-Christians is against every word of the New Testament.

The real fact, which everyone overlooks, is that when a person becomes a Christian and is entered by The Holy Spirit, their every thought, word, action and deed is guided by Him. A true Christian has nothing to fear; period. Attempting to manipulate other people is hopeless.

There's an old line about a church not being a country club for Christians, but rather, a hospital for sinners. Gays and atheists are out in the open now; that makes them easy to find. Exposing them to the love of Christ is the way to put a crack in their faulty system of beliefs and allow them to change.

The Apostle Paul is the model of how a person comes to Christ; struck blind on the road to Damascus, and delivered by faith.

Let them in. Love them. Let it rub off.

If you only want to be a cheerleader for the God squad, without dealing with the people who need to be healed, you're a member of a cult. Jesus would not keep them out.

Joneses, you really do need help, as nooga suggests. Like BRP and his perverse obsession with Bennett, you have a psychopathic loathing for Obama that borders on certifiable insanity. You creep me out sometimes, dude. I'm thinking you pose a serious risk to society. For real.

As for your comment that Obama has not done one thing that has helped the economy...the single most important thing he did was to save the auto industry. I know you conservatives will never give him credit for that but I don't care how you spin it, slice it, or dice it, that was a success by anyone's definition. Do you have any idea the number of jobs that would have been lost if it had been allowed to fail - not just auto industry jobs but those in the many other markets that rely heavily on it? It probably was the one thing that kept us from sliding helplessly into a full blown depression. Obama has some pretty glaring faults that deserve fair criticism but when you cannot at least acknowledge his obvious successesses it shows that you are just a partisan hack who's not the least bit interested in truth but pushing your particular ideology at all costs and fanning the flames of your hate.

Does anyone remember the subject? What was it again? Oh, yea...Bennett took a shot at the religious part of the Republican party. Being basically a libertarian, I don't care which foot, the right or the left, kicks me in the ass. The liberals are basically right on this one. The Republican party wants to use the power of the state government for what ever they want, and the democrats want to use the same power but for a different reason. They can both go to hell. The problem is that they are going to take the rest of us with them.

This religious clap trap is silly, insulting and beneath a true conservative.
