On stupid conspiracy theories and Amy Petty and what the fuck is it with Montana.

[note - apparently there is an Amy Petty who is a musician in Detroit. this is not about her. I'm sure she's lovely.]

I actually don't know when Amy Petty friended me on FB. I think it was one of those similar political deals, but at a certain point she went on one of those "religions cause all the world problems" rants on my page. Recently she posted an article stating that the bishops in the Vatican were passing recommendations not to go to the authorities in the cases of child molestation. The only problem was the fact that it was a news story in The Independent and nowhere else - at least nowhere else that reported the same story or even talked about the supposed bylaws or recommendations in any way differently. In fact, there were just a lot of conspiracy theory websites repeating the story verbatim.

Today, she posted an update stating that she couldn't believe that people would CHALLENGE her Vatican story based on the fact that David Icke endorsed it. I responded - and she sent me this email and blocked me.

Seriously, what the fuck is it with people in Montana. Even though her politics seem to be the opposite of my cousin Dawn it's that same "how DARE you challenge me when I post articles that could be total bullshit" tone.

Seriously, I doubt I will ever go to Montana based on this sampling.

Take the hint. Get the fuck off my facebook feed. You are not welcome here.

------------------------------ The comment: Tim Lieder (April 10, 2014): If David Icke is endorsing a news story, I want more facts - such as the actual documents instead of a biased news story - otherwise, I'm putting it in the same category as "Zionists are lizard people and chemtrails are being sprayed from airplanes in order to experiment on you" meshuggas. I'm sure there are plenty of negative news stories coming out of the Vatican that aren't conspiracy theory bullshit, but that doesn't look like one. Don't worry, you can still hate organized religion and Catholicism all you want, but if you are going to just post anything without checking the source, expect to have it challenged.

It's amazing. I'm still getting blocked on FB. I thought I was being nice.
