Shouty man shouts at Ga. legislature about child porn, gay marriage, other evils

On February 23, pastor Tony Byrd of Zebulon Baptist Church in Toccoa demonstrated to the Georgia House of Representatives — and with gusto! — how much he loves America, Jesus, and the dulcet tones of his own voice.

Byrd was apparently invited by Rep. Michael Harden (R-Toccoa) to say a brief, non-denominational invocation. Byrd had other plans, and instead launched into a 12-minute tirade about how America's great, but is simultaneously the worst because of violence, the legalization of marijuana, the porn industry's success, the availability of child porn, gay marriage, abortion, and "the liberal media's ungodly agenda." (Hey, that's me!)

Once he really hits his stride — around the seven-minute mark — notice the rhetorical wizardry that eschews pauses, and turns marijuana, child porn, gay marriage, and abortion into a heaping word salad of EVIL. Also, notice how the cameraman keeps cutting to shots of really, really bored-looking Democratic legislators. Good stuff.

It's a strange and beautiful thing when sitting through a third motherfucking hour of this show feels worthwhile. The actual finale? I don't know.

  • But, hey, she really loved Ghosts in the Graveyard.

It's a question as old as time itself: If you had to spend your life with either an adult baby or a banana-handed cyborg who makes a very literal "MWAH" sound every time he kisses you, which would you choose?

I came up with an answer that was unsatisfactory to my viewing companions, but we'll get to that later.

First, poor Chris! Just...

  • The best part of the whole episode



How's this for a coincidence: we send seven marginally employed single people and a shitty country duo called American Young to Belgium to dry hump on park benches and swap spit in a monastery's pottery barn, and then Belgium handily beats the U.S. in the World Cup. Everyone should pretend to be mad at The Bachelorette just like we're all pretending...
