Roseanne Barr is Racist (plus Tweets)

I wasn’t going to write about this. But, there are heaps of cool tweets today and I need a topic. The stuff I’m writing already is too long to head a Tweets Post, so Roseanne Barr it is. I didn’t watch her show way back when. It didn’t appeal. I tried one episode a few months ago of the comeback, but I didn’t find it funny or enjoyable, or anything else. So that was it. Give... read more

Cats versus Dogs (plus Tweets)

Well, it’s been a while, and this still isn’t a Proper Post. However, you deserve for me to make an effort. There have been multiple prompts in social media today (even more than usual) relating to cats and dogs, so, Cats vs Dogs it is. I’m hoping to get a decent post out shortly. There is stuff I’m working on, but I’m struggling at the moment. There are several reasons... read more

Geoff Robson: Lying for Jesus and Wrong about Richard Dawkins

Richard Dawkins gave a couple of talks in New Zealand recently. He’s here promoting his new book, Science in the Soul. As usual that brought people out of the woodwork with the message the atheists are either stupid, lying, or just plain evil. None ever sees the irony in their statements. One prime example is Geoff Robson. He wrote an article for one of our leading internet news sites, stuff.co.nz,... read more

The Problem of Spam (plus Tweets)

I get a lot of weird stuff in the spam section of the comments for Heather’s Homilies. It seems to go through cycles that generally match what I’m writing about, or even what’s in the tweets. One thing’s for sure, you and I would go nuts if it wasn’t for the spam filter! There are dozens per day. I usually don’t even look at them – just scroll to the bottom and... read more

Trump is a Fu€ki₦g Moron re JCPOA

I can’t believe this is happening. Well I can. But I held onto hope overnight that someone would talk him out of this. However, I awoke to the news that President Trump has actually announced that he’s pulling the US out of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) aka the Iran Nuclear Agreement. The man is a complete fu€ki₦g moron. Trump’s announcement in support of his decision... read more

Trump Hits 3,000 Lies (plus Tweets)

Apologies to start with. Firstly, some of these tweets are getting a bit dated. I began this post yesterday by finding most of the tweets, then I ran out of time to write the homily. I should always do it the other way around. However, it was a few days since I’d checked my Twitter notifications, and there were a few good ones there, and I just kept going. Also, because I didn’t get this done... read more

Trump Should Retain the Iran Nuclear Agreement (JCPOA)

A couple of days ago, Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, did a slick presentation announcing he had proof that Iran was lying when they signed the Iran Nuclear Agreement. (It’s official name is the JCPOA – Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.) Therefore, his logic went, the deal should be torn up. This comes at the same time as US president Donald Trump is once again telling... read more

NZ’s Pregnant Prime Minister (plus Tweets)

First off I must apologise. (Yes, that’s how we spell it in New Zealand.) I’ve been neglecting my website for a couple of weeks. There has been writing going on, but none of it made it here. Two posts are progressing slowly, and one may actually see the light of day. (Not every post I write makes it to the website; I often decide they’re just not good enough.) I’ve also been doing... read more

A New Prince, God’s Grace, and Blasphemy Laws (plus Tweets)

As I’m sure you’ve all heard by now we have a new royal baby, and it’s a boy. Katherine, Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a son just after 11 am 23 April London time. I can’t let that pass without a mention, if only to piss off the USians! I won’t go into raptures about how cute he is or anything. He’s not a kitten after all! 😺 Most of the details are available via... read more

Israel Folau and Christian Morality

I wasn’t sure what to write about today, then I got The Author’s weekly email. The Author is the brilliant Jesus and Mo cartoonist. His strip this week is about religious morality, and it brought to mind the big news story in New Zealand and Australia at the moment. It began on 9 April when Australian rugby star Israel Folau tweeted that all gays were going to hell. Further, he’s not... read more
