Reverend Cote Blows Call On Roethlisberger

Gullibility is an essential qualification for anyone whose job description includes teaching that fairy tales are true certain fairy tales are true (while all others are wickedly and damnably false) -- especially for those who preach at right-wing churches that flip through the Bible and find "gospel of affluence" -- but Rev. Bruce Cote of Christ Church at Grove Farm reaches beyond the normal calling in today's Tribune-Review.

Drunken groupies just returned from the dentist have been known to drool over star athletes less than Rev. Cote does in fawning over Roethlisberger. Rev. Cote obviously does not know Big Ben as well as stiffed waitresses throughout the North Hills, half-comatose college girls in bodyguarded restrooms, and all of Ben's bitches known him.

Tribber Joanna Klimovich Harrop acts as an able fluffer, demonstrating remarkable dexterity in avoiding any mention of the vivid evidence that Ben's recent, publicized piety might readily be ascribed to convenience, business, and handlers' advice.

Infytune: Cathedral, Crosby, Stills, and Nash

Ben is a pillar of the church, alright! The Church of the Poisoned Mind.


The above is a better musical selection.

Judging by his nightclub antics, Ben probably experienced a few "third services" even before he joined the church.

Organized religion generates substantial good, as well as plenty of bad or even evil -- by being charitable, one might call it a wash.

Celebrating Ben Roethlisberger and his judgment-challenged bride as examples of righteous character does organized religion no favor.

That Ben has aligned, for his conspicuous atonement tour, with a gay-bashing wingnut congregation could create problems for the Steelers in a better world (or better town), but Pittsburgh holds the Steelers to account for nothing, as Ben Roethlisberger, James Harrison, Mark Hart, Jeff Reed and others have vividly demonstrated.

Mark Hart?? Obscure!
