Halloween/Samhain has always been my favorite time of the year. I’ve always been a fan of scary stories and movies. So for the month of October I will be embarking on a series of blog posts I call “Internet Mythology” in which I will showcase form on the web’s most interesting boogieman.  Today I start off with Jeff the Killer.

Though I think most of the source material of the origin of Jeff the Killer is a poorly written piece of teenager fiction, I must say that the face of Jeff into Internet mythology.

The image of a man with large shadowed eyes and wide smiling mouth is most often accompanied by the words “Go to Sleep” Though the words are a reference out of his origin story, I always equate this to a long night of browsing the internet to stumble on this image and two thought come to mind. One is that it’s late and i should go to bed, but some where in the back of my mind the second thought says that is just what this smiling face wants me to do.

Jeffs back story and appearance may have been inspired by the Joker of the Batman comic books according to TVtropes.com.  A chemical alteration caused his face to be bleached white with his own hideous reflection breaking his sanity. Though Self inflicted, his mouth is carved open into what is called a “Glasgow Grin”.  The back story of the Joker is never completely spelled out and in many ways left a mystery; as the Comic book villain would say, “If your going to have a past, It might as well be multiple choice.”

Enjoy a some wonderful reading of the first Jeff the Killer story from my favorite Youtube ‘Pasta reader MrCreepypasta. You don’t have to look at the image if you don’t really want to but his voice makes the bad writing  bearable. Even with the plot holes…

Anyone feel like getting angry? i got some videos for you. Thanks as always to RightWingWatch.org

Greenwell Springs Baptist Church pastor Dennis Terry introduced presidential candidate Rick Santorum and Family Research Council president Tony Perkins in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with a rousing speech railing against liberals and non-Christians and condemning abortion rights, “sexual perversion,” same-sex marriage and secular government. Terry said that America “was founded as a Christian nation” and those that disagree with him should “get out! We don’t worship Buddha, we don’t worship Mohammad, we don’t worship Allah!”

It is a little worrying. the “everyone else is wrong” mentality is being sported and clapped at in large gathering halls of militant angry people. It’s like my high school chapel services all over again. Things like this is scary for the “everyone else crowd”. If the Right wing obsessive hate toward the gays and lesbians somehow dies down, I fear the full force of that hate coming down on the fringe groups like pagans. Any LGBT pagans out there, I would like to give you a hug via internet.

On a lighter note, want to listen to Pat Robertson talk about oral sex between a man and wife? It made me laugh, though I’m a little immature.

Wait… so if you think its a sin then it is and if your don’t think it is then it isn’t… I believe that’s Commandment 13. Seven years of Christan schooling, life time of Sunday school, teaching vacation bible school and serving as a deacon, I never heard that philosophy. Must be new. Haha

I call it “1” because I know there will be more. II also do not specify “Christian” because I’ve heard a lot of hurtful things from athesists about pagans but they dont scream as loudly as the right wing I use for my examples below.

Thanks to The Wild Hunt and Religious Right Watch, activistausa for these glaring insensitive remarks. The facebook stats were found at Openbook though a simple search. Some I can sit back and laugh about and others just hurt deep inside. I think most of these speak for themselves.

Our religion? So no one out there needs to be respected?

 

I found a YouTube channel of a guy that went though a Wal-Mart book section and declared every book there evil. Some had vampires and werewolves and I can accept that some people think that. Then he said some Christan books and even a copy of the bible was evil because it was not King James translation. I skimmed through the rest of his videos for something maybe more offending to put here. I found a video of him destroying a bible. I was shocked but took a look. Anything not King James Translation he considered “counterfeit” and evil. He then shot it with his gun. I wont link the video here because I don’t want him to have any more views from me but I’ll tel you his account is GodGunsGutsGlory4KJV The fact that this man has guns scares me but I am comforted in knowing that he isn’t a very good shot. Also he has kids… ehhhh
