How do you define this term?

posted by Scot McKnight

Out of Arizona, from Clarence Dupnik, we’ve got a new word: “fornickaboobery.” It describes the new immigration law — and he doesn’t like it. It occurred through fornickaboobery.

What in the world does it mean? What do you think he means?

It sounds like a mix of fornication and boob. Either way, he didn’t sound too strong on his talking points.

There’s no real way of saying it nicely. Fornication and Boobery mixed together…it’s a sideways way of saying F***ing Stupidity. I tend to agree. I think the intent of the law is pure, but how its going to play out is going to be not-so-pretty.

I would tend to agree with Jeremy @ #2, especially after watching how the sheriff danced around defining it when she asked him.
While he isn’t gonna win on talking points, I appreciated him pointing out that Arizona law enforcement officials already had the authority to detain someone if they thought they were an illegal.

It’s the kind of nonsense word you use when you make a baseless assertion of racism, and would rather not bother with the difficult work of defending it. It seems to replace the boilerplate evocation of Hitler and yellow stars. Argumentum ad gibberish?

I think the word?s original meaning refers to an act of sexual humor or dirty joke. Refer to the book ?Rationale of the Dirty Joke: An Analysis of Sexual Humor? By G. Legman.
Sherrif Dupnik used the term ?political fornickaboobery? in reference to the Arizona bill. I think what he meant was that the bill is a joke and all the lawmakers who passed it are in on it. He was basically just saying ?WTF?!? in regards to this bill.
Wether you agree with the bill or not, there?s lots of ?WTF?!? moments we all have when we hear about some of the ridiculous bills politicians shove down our throats. We all need to speak out against all this!
That?s why we now have http://www.fornickaboobery.com. So we can start calling out all the political fornickaboobery.
“I think it?s simply political fornickaboobery!”

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science.

The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
