Fuck Richard Simmons. Fuck Weight Watchers. Fuck fat people.
Just substituting for God, the church, and religion, as appearing currently on another thread.
Any bets as to which expression of inexcusable bigotry will be tolerated and which will not?

3. Mine either.
Doing Richard would be like getting it on with a large ferret on meth.

5. LOL is usually just an expression, but not in this case.
My wife just ran in to see what I was laughing hysterically about.

4. Depends upon which forum you post
If I wish to discuss religion, I generally do not do it in R/T, but in the groups. That way I know those who are impolite about my views will not be able to post.

7. I never got why so many folks hate Richard Simmons
He likes to exercise - and because he enjoys it, he wants to share it with other people who want to exercise but don't know how.

Yes he can be annoying. So can Andy Dick, Steve Buscemi, Jerry Lewis and Jack Black. But taken in doses, all of these folks can do their job (entertaining YOU for a fee)

11. Well I don't get the love either :)
I just get the service he provides - weight loss for cheap with a cheerleader to lead you through it. And he doesn't fill his studio full of stick thin models, but normal people.

Hell, if I were a baby boomer who wanted to shed the pounds, I would work out to his vids all the time!

17. Neither should...
Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 04:59 PM by liberalmuse
forcing a 9 year-old molestation victim to bear her stepdad's child. Fuck ANY institution that would even suggest such a thing. I'm sure the all-powerful Catholic church will be destroyed by the posts here on DU condemning it's atrocious stances. Poor, poor persecuted church.

21. I agree with your view completely. But the generic 'fuck the Catholic Church' thread titles...
offend a lot of Catholics who feel the same way about this incident as you and I do.

12. Richard Simmons exists. God doesn't.
I guess I'm a bigot towards that which does not exist.

15. Your metaphor only works
If Richard Simmons, Weight Watchers and Fat People all came out in favor of raping and impregnating 9 year olds.
I believe you are referring to Nancy Gregg's rant about the archbishop in Brazil who made that announcement that, although the nine year girl in question had been repeatedly sexually molested and ultimate impregnated by her stepfather, that her mother and the attending doctor were both excommunicated because they terminated the pregnancy.
(TWINS. A NINE YEAR OLD! GIVE ME A BREAK.) I assure you that the language I muttered to myself after hearing that lovely tidbit of news was infinitely nastier than anything Nancy wrote. THANK YOU, Nancy!!!

16. To the extent that Richard Simmons castigates and excommunicates
nine year old girls for terminating a pregnancy that's the result of pedophiliac rape, then yeah, fuck him.
