Free Speech

Alt text from xkcd:

I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.

What new mystery, then, is this?
The Judge is judged, and holds his peace;
the Invisible One is seen, and is not ashamed;
the Incomprehensible is laid hold upon, and is not indignant;
the Illimitable is circumscribed, and doth not resist;
the Impossible suffereth, and doth not avenge;
the Immortal dieth, and answereth not a word;
the Celestial is laid in the grave, and endureth!

What new mystery is this?
The whole creation, I say, was astonished;
but, when our Lord arose from the place of the dead,
and trampled death under foot,
and bound the strong one,
and set man free,
then did the whole creation see clearly that for man’s sake
the Judge was condemned,
and the Invisible was seen,
and the Illimitable was circumscribed,
and the Impassible suffered,
and the Immortal died,
and the Celestial was laid in the gave.


For our Lord, when He was born man,
was condemned in order that He might Show mercy,
was bound in order that He might loose,
was seized in order that He might release,
suffered in order that He might feel compassion,
died in order that He might give life,
was laid in the grave that He might raise from the dead.

On these accounts He came to us; on these accounts, though He was incorporeal, He formed for Himself a body after our fashion,
appearing as a sheep, yet still remaining the Shepherd;
being esteemed a servant, yet not renouncing the Sonship;
being carried in the womb of Mary, yet arrayed in the nature of His Father;
treading upon the earth, yet filling heaven;
appearing as an infant, yet not discarding the eternity of His nature;
being invested with a body, yet not circumscribing the unmixed simplicity of His Godhead;
being esteemed poor, yet not divested of His riches;
needing sustenance inasmuch as He was man, yet not ceasing to feed the entire world inasmuch as He is God;
putting on the likeness of a servant, yet not impairing the likeness of His Father.
He sustained every character belonging to Him in an immutable nature:
He was standing before Pilate, and at the same time was sitting with His Father;
He was nailed upon the tree, and yet was the Lord of all things.

-Bishop Melito, of Sardis

sara silverman is annoying

She’s one of those female comedians who thinks that just because she’s a female comedian who makes dirty jokes that she’s somehow funny. A lot of female comedians are like that, and it’s infuriating. It’s like cool, you’re a chick and you made a fart joke, well done, now let’s get back to letting the real comedians make people laugh at legitimately humourous things.
