What Are You Giving Up For Lent?

batman is gayyyyI'm giving up ridiculous Times opiner Ross Douthat! This week, Douthat announced the gay victory over America, and his great trolling concern about what penalty the vicious gays will impose on Christians. (He's also concerned that people who won't provide services to gay people will go out of business. Welcome to capitalism! But of all business that should go under, the ridiculous Ross Douthat opinion industry should go first.)

But really this is just your friendly annual reminder that today is Ash Wednesday, so when you are out and about, don't be startled by the observant!

I had some inane quip lined up (Say. . .what are YOU giving up for lent, K?), then fell for the link and read what I'd studiously avoided over the weekend,
and when I got to his gallingly condescending "Christians had plenty of opportunities — thousands of years’ worth — to treat gay people with real charity," I decided the best option was to give up Lent for Lent.

@KarenUhOh I'm praying Douthat is giving up US.

Father Douthat is among the many "pundits" the tortuous meanderings of whose addled minds merit no attention except, perhaps, mockery.

Christ, what an asshole.
