Jennifer Carroll Mad at Media for Not Praising Jesus; Also Advocates Ignoring Scientists

Jennifer Carroll says media outlets like The Da Vinci Code, just like socialist dictators.
This past weekend was a few days full of the politically strange around Florida, which included jeers from the audience at a gay soldier during the GOP presidential debate, Ann Coulter calling Debbie Wasserman Schultz "a hideous beast who has a voice like a hyena getting an abortion," and Gov. Rick Scott ripping on President Obama for using a TelePrompter -- in a joke he read off of a TelePrompter.

Then there's Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, who's mad at the media for not having enough pro-Jesus news and says things like science is preventing the country from having a "righteous government."

Among Carroll's complaints are allegations that the media do things like "promote The Da Vinci Code," which, among other things, "is exactly what dictators and socialist rulers did."

Carroll's conspiracy theories revelations came on Friday morning before the presidential debate, while she was delivering a speech hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition.

You know the Bible says faith is believing in what is not seen, today unfortunately many in the media would like nothing better to ridicule Christians: they promote The Da Vinci Code, they place doubt in the public's mind that Christ was not risen and they condemn the Passion of Christ, yet they sensationalize stories that call for the end of prayer in school and removing the name of God from our country's pledge. Ladies and gentlemen, these are very sad times when we allow the minority to poison the minds of the majority. This is exactly what dictators and socialist rulers did.

We don't quite remember Fidel Castro's glowing review of The Da Vinci Code (or ours, for that matter), but whatever floats Carroll's boat.

Then there's her dislike of science, in which she advocates that good Christians not let scientists "push their evolution."

"Man does not have all the answers," she said. "Some of our political leaders bow down to scientists and let them have the stage to push their evolution, but there's nothing, nothing a scientist can make, that is exactly like what God creates."

Carroll rounded out her rant with her line about the United States needing a "righteous government" to "lead this country on a proper moral path."

While science is the way of people's living and understanding of the world, keeping the faith would be very important as well.

People like Carroll give persons of faith a bad name.  She is NOT a Christian.

i'm glad she spoke up so we now know we have yet another unaccountable lunatic in a high position of power, which is to say, yet another valid reason to burn it all down.

I always thought that Carrol was a rational voice in the Republican party, now I know better.For Carrol to take up the pitchfork against science is unconscionable.The new wave of this American Inquisition on PROVEN facts, thanks to science, is astounding.Those who push their Grim fairy tails upon us in opposition to the progress humans have made should be the ones who are castigated in society.Antiscience politicians are dangerous, ludicrous, and their views should preclude them from holding office where many decisions must be made with the best available information and not a conversation with their buddy in the sky.How can we trust leaders who can not understand the basic tenants of science?Our views are based on FACTS yours are based on allegories.

Dear Jennifer Carroll;

Booga booga booga. You are babbling lunacy. BTW, the majority you speak of has officially become a minority. People are giving up the fairy tale at an exponential rate.

Sounds like a solid endorsement of Rick Perry. Perry's stated position on science is that he is against it.

I like Herb almost as much as Obama.  If Herb got this country running as good as Godfather's Pizza, we could get our housing bubble back.

Her quote: "These are very sad times when we allow the minority to poison the minds of the majority."

Reminds me of: “In a democracy, the majority of the citizens is capable of exercising the most cruel oppressions upon the minority” -- Edmund Burke

Yeah those "evil" scientists, how dare they cure disease an make things that make our lives easier!  Dont they know we are supposed to still be living in the bronze age?  Damn those bastards!Seriously its rants like these that make me really worried about the mental state of our supposed "leaders".  They advocate magic fairy dust an old guys living in the sky instead of science and fact.  This we do not need and explains why we are in such bad predicaments that we find ourselves.  When education becomes religious indoctrination it makes everyone that much more ignorant.

Oops. Sorry.  Wrong god.

Just like 9/11 never let scientific evidence get in the way of a good story. 

 Now I can go back to watching the 10 Commandments to confirm Mrs. Carrolls thesis on the Israeli plight.

You want some Pro-Jesus news?  Okie dokie, here goes.

Supposedly, the dude hung out with hookers.

Man, I always assumed those thousands of Catholic Priests who raped 100,000 young boys over a period of decades gave "christians" a bad name.

Then there's the Holy Wars.  Don't get me started on the gajillions of people nuked within the pages of the bible.

Talk big while you can, scientist, cause when Rick Perry is the president, and all the books (except the good book) are burned, your scientist ass and all the other guys with multiple advanced degrees in the sciences are gonna find yourselves marching south across the border with the rest of the undesirables.

Reminds me of Bluto Blutarsky who once so eloquently opined "was it over when the German's bombed Pearl Harbor"?

Bronze?  That's science stuff!  We need to get back to the righteous path of knocking chips off of stones to make tools!  If it was good enough for our ancestors, it's good enough for us!

Well, technically, that's the right God, just the wrong branch of Abraham's family.

Gotta have your facts straight when you are putting God in his place. He is omnipotent.

Perry is finished. Obama recently cut a deal with the "moneyed interests". Why else do you think he read that disgusting speech last week at the UN? You think he believed a word of that propaganda?

It's a done deal. Obama in 2012.

Hahahahah....

For a guy that drop out of Kaiser, you sure know all about studying!

By the way, since you read my CV, you will have noted that in the past year I did work for a small software company...  You might recognize their name.  Microsoft. And you should have noticed my BS in CompSci and my minor in Applied Math. Time spent working for IBM, Coca Cola, Disney, Blockbuster, NASA, Motorola, and Bell South.

You forgot to mention that also.

You do what again? Oh yeah, you used to be a short order cook. Now you are just, what is that word for "unemployed"?

If you think you are going to get the 2012 NT award, hahahahaha.  Really?  The nephew of Poitier, the same Poitier that helped me garner the 2010 award?

I happen to personally know the 2011 winner, and unlike you, he's a good guy.  Not a crazy ass dumb fuck like yourself.

How humble and unassuming of you to not list any of your multiple advanced  degrees in the sciences on your online resume.  Nothing there but a list of certs in mark-up and rendering languages that are as dead as ancient Sumerian and a trade school completion certificate.  

Refreshing to see true humility in this culture of shameless self-promotion.

I must applaud your commitment to your obsession!  Must get very tiring....

BTW, I have multiple advance degrees in the sciences.

Well lets see, on 9/11 some "agents" were able to circumvent our National Defense System without any interference even though on that same day NORAD was running drills that were simulating that very scenario. And at least an hour AFTER the WTC was hit these marvelous young men their flying machines were still able to smash something into the Pentagon...

THE FUCKING PENTAGON, WHICH THE DAY BEFORE ON 9/10/01 SECRETARY OF DEFENSE DONALD RUMSFELD ANNOUCED THAT THEY COULDN'T ACCOUNT FOR 2.3 TRILLION DOLLARS!!!!!

 And the portion of the Pentagon that was hit contained the Naval Offices that were investigating where that money went to.

 And then Condoleezza Rice said they could never imagine such a thing happening even though the military was training for such an attack ON THAT DAY and she completely ignored a PDF in August stating that Al-queda was threatening to attack the United States.

 Now back to the WTC, how could a carbon based fire that was under control, according to NYFD, cause two 110 story skyscrapers to fall into their own footprint after a little more then 1 hour?  How did those fires on the upper floors compromise all those steel beams EVEN THOUGH THE ACCERLANT FOR THE FIRES COULD NOT PHYSICALLY BURN HOT ENOUGH TO BEND OR MELT STEEL?

And then we have Dr.Steven Jones who collected dust sample from "ground zero" and to his surprise he found traces of nano-thermite, a military grade explosive that is only available from the US Military.

 Next was the infamous WTC Building 7 that was imploded around 5:00 that same day even though it was never hit by a plane and only had fires that were spread out through a few floors but when it was time to get rid of Building 7 it collapsed at FREE FALL SPEED, as if there was nothing at all supporting the building!!!

 That is just a very brief synopsis of some of the actions that took place that day which were conveniently laid at the feet of a bunch of ragtag patsies and some guy on dialysis dying in a cave in Afghanistan, supposedly.

 So just like the FAIRY TALE OF 9/11 , which is not supported by any scientific evidence just a bunch of misleading rhetoric, the "bible" which Mrs. Carroll so closely identifies with is also nothing but a bunch of tall tales written by some very nefarious characters that ignores years of scientific research.

Seems that the NT's Editor likes me comment and he's the one that counts - being that he votes for the Activist of the Year.
