Blogger Ron Mon claims he's better than God
One of the best known clever quotes by Lee Trevino was uttered not long after the inimitable ball-striker was himself struck by lightning during the 1975 Western Open:
“If you are caught on a golf course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron. Not even God can hit a 1-iron.”
Now we have one of our own bloggers, the insidious Ron Mon, extolling the virtues of his 1-iron on the TravelGolf.com This Week podcast hosted by Dave Berner.
He says he loves his 1-iron. Worse yet, he claims he can hit his 1-iron!
By so doing, he is obviously claiming to be better than God. Heretic!
Many out there likely recall when John Lennon stated that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus. The result of that was mass smashing and burning of Beatles albums – a whole lot of holy hooliganism, by heavens.
I think something similar is in order here. If there’s nothing else to be learned from these times, it’s that fundamentalist violence is fine and dandy as long as OUR fundamentalists are the ones doing it.
So what do you say, righteous golfers? Pull those rusty old 1-irons out of your basements and beat them into scrap metal with hybrid clubs! Burn effigies of Ron Mon in the streets. (If you have no effigy, a likeness of Pee Wee Herman will do.) Boycott matches of the high school golf team he coaches. (Come to think of it, we might have another David Koresh on our hands here – think of the children, the children!!)
We simply cannot remain silent while a golf blogger claims divinity. That’s what televangelists and Johnny Miller are for.

When you very stupid and naive leftists make such statements, you HURT our civilization immensely. This is because, collectively, such sentiments serve to blind people to the true nature of the threat that confronts us and saps their will to preserve their own civilization, aside from having other negative effects. You see, sadly, there are many people out there who are as stupid and naive as you are.
You really don't get it, though. If a day comes when those with virtue and common sense rise to the fore, people such as you will be brought to heel with extreme prejudice along with the Muslim fanatics you enable. In fact, you may have to be taken care of before them.
It shows their pig-headedness and blindness to other thoughts, other ideas. Talk about stupidity.
It's usually said right before they're caught in a public bathroom caught in yet another homosexual act.
Some of us say that you really don't get it because you really don't. It has nothing to do with blindness to other's beliefs; we know very well what you believe, but we also know why your beliefs are in error. You see, Timmy, not all beliefs are equally valid. For instance, the idea that it's OK to enslave foreigners is not a valid idea, whereas the understanding that we're all children of God is valid.
Class is dismissed.
What would we do without the guiding light of you and others like you to show us the true path?
I'd like to exterminate all terrorists from the face of the earth, like the vermin they are, but when I run into arrogant, holier-than-thou hypocrites like you, I can almost see why hate us.
In fact, if it weren't for people like you, there would probably be a great deal more peace on earth.
Now, you're dismissed, free to go out and spew your ideas of hatred and prejudice and hang out at the public restroom of your choice.
The fact that you believe terrorists hate us because of people such as myself is illustrative of your naivete and ignorance. If you know anything about the world view of the people in question, you'll understand that they refer to us as the "Great Satan" because of the DECADENCE of the secular West. It is the effete, pusillanimous, godless western man who they despise most, not those possessed of religiosity. This isn't to say they love my set -- they wish to convert by the sword regardless -- however, secularism represents virtually everything they abhor.
Today's class is now dismissed.
In fundamentalist we find "fundament," a polite Latinate euphemism for "ass." I think JS bares excellent witness to the
connection. S/He also proves my point: S/He can threaten me without fear of reprisal (well, s/he does hide behind a movie character online, and an English author elsewhere), but if it were, say, a Muslim threatening me, well, that would be bad.
Here's an illustrative incendent of people in power claiming righteousness for their side:
"In 2004, Secretary of Education Rod Paige called the National Education Association, the country's largest teachers union, 'a terrorist organization' because of what Paige defined as the 'obstructionist scare tactics' used by its lobbyists." --AlterNet
Yup. Let's bomb those teachers back to the stone age. Then there will be lots of undereducated kids around for certain know-nothings to impress.
