Fox Network founded 1986. Fox News founded 1996.
"In Operation Since: October 7, 1996"
The Clinton scandals were so underreported, an entire television news network (Fox) was founded on reporting them.
Satire has no chance around here.
Those comparisons predate athiest progressives by quite a bit.
As does the use of the caduceus as a symbol of the Greek god Hermes. That's why it's called a caduceus. It's a Greek word, with a root that looks a lot like Zeus, but I might be wrong about that.
Why would Rafael go around holding a symbol of a Greek god, especially one that doesn't have a thing to do with healing and is instead the symbol of commercialism? Unless commercialism (free enterprise) is the god you truly worship. See Mammon.
Since the error of assigning the caduceus to medicine and healing is of somewhat recent origin, I suggest that the assigning of the caduceus to Rafael is probably of similar recent origin. But even if Rafael did hold a stick with snake, what are the chances that he would use the very same symbol that the earlier Greek god Asclepius used? But then again, we are talking about gods and demigods here. They have little respect for human trademark law.
But do go ahead and explain how the wrong symbol was applied to the apochryphal Judeo-pagan god of healing Rafael because Bronze Age goat-herders were divinely inspired to understand the double-helix structure of the DNA. And while you're at it, tell us how sheep's bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes.
Like I said in a comment on another thread, it's damned hard to do decent satire around here.
Understandable, considering how difficullt it is to mock the stupidity around here sometimes. There's is nothing I can say in jest that some idiot won't double-down in complete seriousness.
Sarcasm, Pop. I was addressing America's famous exclusive concern for Anglo-Saxon countries, when we let them be invaded and bombed by Germany for multiple years in two wars before finally getting involved.
Which is why America declared war on Germany the minute (plus or minus a couple of years) they occupied France and bombed England.
Oh cool, BB, didn't know you were a pagan. FYI, to be a good pagan, you should know that the two-serpents twined about a winged staff is called a caduceus and is a symbol associated with Hermes, the messenger, god of commerce, etc.
The similar medical symbol is the rod of Asclepius, which has one snake twined around a staff, which, you know, kinda screws up your otherwise entertaining story about the goat-herders and their DNA. But hey, nice try. Maybe another ignorant preacher can tell you a different uneducated story to help reestablish your moral foundations.
