Keith Burgess-Jackson expresses his respect for "Brother Jed" here. (You'll have to scroll down. Keith doesn't do permalinks for some reason.) Unfortunately, Keith, true to his blogging form, really is living in the distant past. Brother Jed, and his wife Sister Cindy, are raving lunatics. As Keith mentions, Jed and Cindy have had a child. As a matter of fact, and apparently unbeknownst to Keith, they've had several children. I know this because I have seen them, on numerous occasions, parading their three identically dressed (long jean skirts, of course) children in front of large audiences. Their two youngest girls (bless their poor hearts - they're so adorable) recited entire chapters of Scripture before a hostile audience on the campus of the University of Tennessee. Jed's oldest daughter was given a chance to preach, and he never failed to introduce her as the beautiful girl that none of the godless perverts at UT would ever have a chance to lay. In my opinion, Jed has severely abused his children by stunting their intellectual growth.
As Keith notes, Jed's "histrionics" are hilarious, though in a perverse, repulsive, and disgusting way. He's such a complete and utter moron that you can't help but enjoy yourself listening to him rant and rave like a petulant child. One of the more humorous remarks of Jed's that I've heard had to do with how much he cared for his wife. Jed said, and I'm almost quoting verbatim here, "I bought my wife not one, but two automatic dishwashers... so when she does the dishes, it's just as if I were doing them." That gem of a statement came right after Jed confessed to having never changed the diapers of two of his children. As a "good Christian", he thinks his wife belongs barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen. Jed's lunacy doesn't stop there, of course. Once again, Keith notes - and not disapprovingly! - that Jed "says in a tremolo voice, 'HO-MO-SEX-U-AL!' The crowd loves it." I should note that Jed says this while pointing to random (male) passers-by, the sexual orientations of whom he could not possibly know.
That's not all Jed says. If he sees a girl in a short skirt (instead of a boy he assumes is a "fraggot") walking past the crowd of folks his theatrics have gathered, he has no objection to pointing a violently shaking and condeming finger at her while calling her a "sperm-sucking sorostitute" (it takes him about seven seconds to get this out in his "tremulo" voice). This is, after all, how Brother Jed gathers the crowds Keith Burgess-Jackson speaks of so favorably. Brother Jed tells amusing little stories too. For example, I've listened to him relate his (alleged) experience as a fraternity boy. As Jed tells it (once again, I'm quoting almost verbatim), "I would always ask the girls who smoked cigarettes out on dates, because I figured if they would put a cigarette in their mouth, they'd put almost anything in their mouth."
Keith states that he "respects Jed". I've heard Jed speak half a dozen times over several years. I can still quote Jed almost verbatim. And Jed is not worthy of any respect beyond that base level that should be extended to all human beings in virtue of their mere humanity. It's possible that Keith happened to catch this religious psycho solely on his more reasonable days, but I doubt it. All of Keith's blogs (The Conservative Philosopher, AnalPhilosopher, The Ethics of War, and Animal Ethics) have been dropped from this blogroll.
