Very Sane Website Explains: English-Only Driving Tests Protect Against Bigotry, Racism, The Pope

All hail BeelzebubHey Americaphile, what’s new in Jersey? Anything interesting going on with respect to driving tests at whatever New Jersey calls the DMV? Could you please answer in the form of everything in bold and ALL CAPS?

Republican Sens. Gerald Cardinale of Cresskill and Michael Doherty of Warren/Hunterdon offered a bill to require both portions of the examinations for personal licenses – written test and skill test – to be administered only in English.

THIS MEASURE WILL MAKE ENGLISH AVAILABLE TO ALL AND BE A STRONG BULWARK AGAINST BIGOTRY AND RACISM!!!!

That is intriguing indeed! We did not understand the first word in your link back to your previous post about how “English-only” driving tests protect against bigotry and racism, so we will just have to take your word for it. Maybe because all the gross foreigners will be gone, so nobody can be racist against them? Yes, that makes the most sense by far. (At least more sense than Ireland and the Klan what?) But is there something crazier you would like to tell us, maybe what this English-only driving-test bill by these two American heroes has to do with Popery?

THIS MINISTRY SALUTES THESE TOW TWO HEROES FOR THEIR COURAGEOUS EFFORT TO FREE AMERICA’S HIGHWAYS AND URGES ALL PRO-AMERICANS IN NEW JERSEY TO WRITE TO THEIR STATE SENATORS IN SUPPORT OF SENATE BILL 1874!!!!!

HOWEVER, IT IS DISTURBING TO LEARN THAT THESE TWO PRECIOUS PRO-AMERICAN SOULS ARE ENTRAPPED IN POPERY!!!!!

So these fine upstanding tow two Greatest American Heroes are Catholic, is what you’re saying? Hmm, well is there anything they can do about it?

THIS MINISTRY URGES THEM TO ESCAPE ROME AS DID GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN, UNDER THE FULL MANIFEST POWER OF THE DEBORAH ANOINTING, FIND A MARK 16:18 FELLOWSHIP AND FINALLY ENJOY LIVES WITH MEANING, LEST THEY GET LEFT BEHIND TO SPEND THE REST OF THEIR LIVES…. AND ALL ETERNITY…. WITH PIAPS!!!!!

All right, thanks Americaphile. Catch you again on the next slow news day! [Americaphile]

    Just chilling with my Piaps.

    • HogeyeGrex

      I guess I must have known this once, but had long since forgotten.

      PIAPS, according to urban dictionary, for the ignorant like me:

      this is the acronym used to describe Hillary Clinton. It stands for "Pig In A Pants Suit."

      It sort of completes teh funny.

        Know? I can't even believe it's not butter.

      • tessiee

        "Do you know he's not the Pope's butter?"

        of course.
        the pope's butter is a cute li'l billy goat who butts the Pope whenever he goes out in the Vatican backyard.

    • tihond

      It's so hard to find good help these days.

      The Pope's butter is something completely different.

    Did this come out of one of those Jack Chick cartoon pamphlets?

    • C_R_Eature

      This is my very favorite "Jack Chick" cartoon pamphlet.

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        Back when I was into the occult/witchy woo-woo stuff, it was amazing the number of people I found who believed that the Necronomicon was an actually real-life grimoire.

        • C_R_Eature

          Any Tome of Secret Occult Knowledge that's sold in direct-mail catalogs is bound to be suspect. But then, I'm just a skeptic.

          • Butch_Wagstaff

            I have to admit that I bought a mass market paperback of it when I was a teen and I thought it was real. That was before I read any Lovecraft. Years later, I found entire threads on occult/witchy woo-woo message boards loaded with comments from people who thought it was an actual grimoire and took it very seriously.
