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!"

That's as far as I got.
Desperately seeking relevance in a world that’s forgotten her.
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.
Yes Roseanne, the harbinger of good taste and grace, is belittling Marie Osmond??? Roseanne, go spit and scratch your crotch...Next!!!
“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.

No ... despicable !!
Which fat woman on television said this? Was she famous once?
Roseann Barr is the most successful poster child for abstinance ever created, right next to Helen Thomas and Hillary herself.
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.
Roseanne Barr is still around? Damn. I’d thought this wreck of a woman dropped off the planet years ago.
If I had Rosanne Barr as a Mom, I’d want to commit suicide.
So, would that make Judaism responsible for Barr’s problems?
Apparently Newsbusters needs someone to proofread their headlines.
Disgusting waste of human.
Consider the source. Roseanne Barr is a prostitute who learned to crack a fast line. She is an intellectual zero. Why are we wasting time and electrons talking about her?
She’s a very frightened woman who reminds me a Madalyne O’Hare.
We are all going to have to answer to God when this life is over.
But, it's OK if Ms. Barr does it. Liberal hypocrisy, an alternate spelling of redundant.
Reading this article made me think about something and go dig it out of my files.

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.

That’s just sad.
However, it confirms everything you already knew about how classless Ms Barr is.
Sick. Just one twisted and angry woman.
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.
I pray Marie’s faith and that of her family is not shaken.
Yes, we all see how happy Roseanne Barr is. Her face constantly is the textbook image of anger.
Very good post. So true.
||Oh that she would.|
Roseanne used to live in Magna Utah, and has always had a thing against the Mormons / anti-gay climate of Utah.
I blame Rosanne’s spoon for making her fat and her mirror for making her ugly. Her stupid is just natural.
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.
Wrong is easy, it's fat and ugly that has got to be a bitch to deal with.
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.
“....ought to chase her from civilized society forever.”
Civilized? You mean the society that has legally killed millions of unborn humans, promotes homosexuality and wants to legalize marriage between Mike and Melvin?
“Deranged: Roseanne Barr Blames Maria Osmonds Faith for Sons Suicide”
A ridiculous statement from a ridiculous excuse of a person.
I say if a religious fundamentalist commits suicide (G-d forbid!) his family should sue a liberal.
“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.”
Describes my life living with my stepmother and Dad. I had to be perfectly socially adept and a perfectly clean room and working 40 hours a week and paing my way to college or I was a failure. When I was twelve I was given pills to cut down on my high spirits and to prevent my eccentricities from being too pronounced.
What a pig.
F&%#ing idiot. Enough said.
Rosanna who? Didn't Gordon Lightfoot once write a song about Rosanna?
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.
