Deranged: Roseanne Barr Blames Maria Osmondís Faith for Sonís Suicide
Newsbusters ^ | March 6, 2010 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 03/06/2010 4:14:26 PM PST by Rufus2007

Perhaps this was a cry out for relevancy - something she hasn't been since the Clinton administration, but comedienne Roseanne Barr is showing her social commentary knows no bounds.

In a March 4 post on her blog, Barr used the suicide of Marie Osmond's son, Michael Blosil, to go on a sick and twisted anti-religion screed. According to the former sitcom star, any underlying issues that led to Blosil taking his own life were a result of "his church and the people in it":

"marie osmonds poor gay son killed himself because he had been told how wrong and how sick he was every day of his life by his church and the people in it. Calling that ‘depression' is a lie!"

Poor Rosie, that is called projection. You are so unhappy because you feel like people are telling you that you are wrong that you claim to see the same thing in others.

“former sitcom star”

It seems to me that some of these hollywood types think that success or partial success in show business, as in Roseanne’s case, qualifies them to be a guiding light for the world.

She is an idiot. By her logic, there can be no standards, no morals, nothing declared as "wrong," because the existence of such standards automatically would mean that some people would violate them, feel guilt, and perhaps then make bad choices thereafter.

And, if one accepts that there are no such moral standards of right and wrong, then would also have to conclude that there is and can be no God.

But, I guess this is just another way of explaining the foundational beliefs of the Liberal of our day.

Barr, with a total disregard for the rules of grammar, capitalization and punctuation, continued her rant by doling out criticism against the Mormon faith, ironically in the same way she seems to indicate that particular church acts toward homosexuality.

But, it's OK if Ms. Barr does it. Liberal hypocrisy, an alternate spelling of redundant.

Let’s get back to that old idea of an aristocracy of merit
By Charley Reese - Published in the Orlando Sentinel on April 20, 2000

It is time to revive the Jeffersonian idea of an aristocracy of merit before the last vestige of American freedom drowns in the cesspool of egalitarianism. When I was boy, people were not shy about saying of someone who neglected or abused his family that such a person was “sorry and no good.” And they were not shy about saying it to the sorry-and-no-good person’s face. They did not stoop to treat a sorry-and-no-good person the same as they treated a fine-and-good person.

To do this is to betray the fine-and-good person. Our handshake and smile should be reserved for those people whose virtue earns it. If they are offered to people whose behavior is less than virtuous then the handshake and smile are debased and degraded. Of what value is our approval if we grant it freely to every bum, slut, ignoramus, liar, and criminal we meet? We become no better than a courtier who smiles at and flatters everyone in sight. Some people don’t deserve a smile, only a cold and formal address.

It is not true that everyone is as good as anybody else. Some people are definitely superior people, and some people are definitely inferior. Some people are intelligent, and some people are dumb. Some people are industrious, and some people are lazy. Some people are kind, and some people are mean. Some people are considerate, and some people are rude and boorish. It is not enough to acknowledge the virtuous by our approval; we must also acknowledge the bad by our disapproval.

Americans ought to be able to tell the difference between a communist and libertarian, between a dissolute person and a moral person, between a responsible person and an irresponsible person. But to do that, Americans must have standards, and apparently government schools and the news media are working diligently to make sure that Americans don’t develop any standards.

Americans ought to be able to tell the difference between literature and hackwork, between art and trash, between great people and mediocrity. At one time, they could, but of late people seem increasingly unable to form judgments.

They seem to believe that there is only one virtue and that is tolerance. Tolerance, however, is not a virtue. It just means acquiescence, and nobody should tolerate rude behavior, irresponsible behavior, dissolute behavior, criminal behavior and the betrayal of oath and trust that is so common in Washington, D.C. By the same token, discrimination has been made into a “bad word” though, in fact, it simply means the ability to distinguish between good and evil, the worthwhile and the not so worthwhile.

Well, there is no secret about who is pushing the society without standards. It’s all those people who would be in deep trouble if people had standards: talent-less bimbos; goofballs pretending to be artists; dissolute crooks serving in public office; and amoral executives promoting obscenity as entertainment. In short, the incompetent, the amoral, and the immoral.

If you go back to the 1950s, when the decline of America began, you will hear the advocates of the sexual revolution telling you that once Victorian and Puritanistic hang-ups and repression are eliminated, people will be happy, healthy and wise. Well, all the restraints have been removed, but instead of happiness you have an explosion of crime, suicide, broken families, venereal disease, and rampant dishonesty. Wow, what a surprise.

Hedonism is one of the oldest philosophies, and its results have always been the same: the decline, decay, and eventual collapse of civilization. People have forgotten that only moral societies flourish.

This is sick. When a person loses a child, it is bad enough. That hurt lasts for years and makes you feel like there is no point in going on anyway. For Roseanne to open her mouth at a time like this ought to chase her from civilized society forever.

Ridiculous.

That said, I had a gay Mormon friend who told me once that there actually is a problem in Mormonism, not so much with being gay, becuase a disproportionate number of gays are former Mormons. My friend attributed this to a tendency among Mormons to avoid the opposite sex, regard women mostly as breeders, and then to spend two years as a “missionary” being virtually the soulmate of another guy.

But he said that the real problem was an obsession with a strange sort of artificial perfection. That is, you had to be the perfect middle class guy: the tie had to be tied just right, you had to have the right haircut, you had to be into the right sports, you had to have the right wife and family, etc. If you failed at any of these things, you felt that it was all over for you.

There are probably a lot of reasons for this, but having once lived in a very Mormon town in CA, I’d say that he was correct in his observations. This doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that the guy was gay, but perhaps it does relate to some of the demands for a strange perfection in unimportant things that Mormon society demands. In addition, his family was a big deal in Mormonism, and it’s always hard to live up to something like that.

That’s funny, because I’m Mormon, and am most certainly not gay. As to missionaries, the ancients that went out “two by two” (Luke 10:1) weren’t gay ether, in fact, there was strict commandments against such behavior.

People will think what they think, and assign motive and reason, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Mormons are hated for their opposition to the gay lifestyle.

Religious fundamentalists are told by liberals how wrong and how sick they are much more frequently than they (religious fundamentalists) ever comment about "gays."

I say if a religious fundamentalist commits suicide (G-d forbid!) his family should sue a liberal.

When I was twelve I was given pills to cut down on my high spirits and to prevent my eccentricities from being too pronounced.

Google “major depressive disorder homosexuality” . These two often go together.

Of course, gays say they are depressed because society hates them.

Before political correctness took hold, psychiatry used to recognize that depression, bipolar disorder, narcissistic and borderline personality disorders, to name a few, were associated with homosexuality. Which one caused the other or are they often just simply co-morbities?

You know, I’d bet that everyone who commits suicide has done at least one thing that they either knew was morally wrong or which they had been told was morally wrong according to a certain code.

So, I guess the answer for Mizz Barr is that there should be no moral codes, because moral codes make people feel bad when they cannot be perfect, and feeling bad leads to suicide.

I seem to remember someone named Paul explaining that the purpose of the law (a moral code) was precisely so that people could know that they were not perfect and could never be perfect. There’s more to that story, but I’ll leave it at that for now.
