Essential Creationist Gear: Toilet Camera

We can’t find any news today about David McConaghie, who — until very recently — was a high-ranking party official of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (the DUP). As we previously posted (see Creationist Suspected of Bathroom Voyeurism), he’s been arrested in connection with the discovery of a toilet camera found in the loo of DUP member David Simpson’s constituency office. Simpson now says that McConaghie no longer works for him or the party.

Although he’s been stripped (so to speak) of his DUP party position, we have no word as yet about McConaghie’s role as media officer for the Caleb Foundation, a prominent creationist lobbying organization. In a previous post (Creationism in Northern Ireland: Institutional Insanity) we wrote that the Caleb Foundation seems to be a combination of the worst aspects of the neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids) and Answers in Genesis. It also appears that the Caleb Foundation are the puppet masters for the Democratic Unionist Party, which is currently the largest party in the Northern Ireland Assembly.

The lack of news about this great creationist would be an impediment to some bloggers, but not your Curmudgeon. If there’s one word which describes us (besides “humble”) it’s “benevolent,” and so we decided to use the news lull to see if we could help other creationists who aspire to what McConaghie has achieved. Thus, we went searching for suitable equipment to help them accomplish that goal.

At the Amazon website we found a veritable cornucopia of spy cameras, and you can see them all here. They’re small, they’re inconspicuous, and thus they’re easily concealed in the loo.

Yes, dear reader, you too can be creationist researcher like David McConaghie! With one of these devices, you can explore that which has heretofore been hidden. You can see the actual working results of what the intelligent designer has given us. No longer will the wonders of human anatomy be concealed from you.

Check this out: Wireless Surveillance System. That’s the one pictured at the top of this post. Best of all, it costs only $28. No creationist’s loo should be without one! The product description says

All cables & adapters are included so it can be easily installed in a few minutes to your tv, vcr or computer that has tv tuner or capture card.

Think of all the creation research you can do while seated at your computer, watching … well, just watching. Hours and hours of intellectual stimulation can be yours! What are you waiting for?

If you don’t think you can adequately conceal that one, then, ah … in lieu thereof (yeah, that was bad!) consider the Functional Smoke Detector Covert Color Camera. Yes, it looks like a smoke detector. It really is a smoke detector — and more! It can be yours for only $63. One of the reviews says:

The actually [sic] picture quality is really good and in color. The audio works perfectly. And it is a functioning fire alarm. There is no way anyone can tell it is a camera device.

Okay, dear reader. If you’re a creationist, now you know that you too can do what David McConaghie was doing. He has set the example. Go now, and do likewise. Your Curmudgeon has shown you the way.

  1. Our Curmudgeon notes:

    Simpson now says that McConaghie no longer works for him or the party.

    Outrageous discrimination!

    I trust that Mr. Coppedge can give some helpful advice to Mr. McConaghie on seeking legal redress for such a blatant case of workplace discrimination and dismissal on religious grounds!

    Or even one for the heavy artilliery — if only Mr. Luskin of the DI can be persuaded to take this one on pro bono

  2. Megalonyx says: “a blatant case of workplace discrimination”

    More than that, it’s viewpoint discrimination.

  3. Caleb was involved in the Giants Causeway creationism
    Scandal. Looks like doing lots of creative stuff out there. Impressive

  4. It appears that the splendid Caleb Foundation is pulling its wagons into a circle: see CALEB FORUM HAS BEEN CLOSED

    You’ll need to scroll down 1/2 page to the second news item:

    …some of those who post on the Forum and who are opposed to Caleb tend to be unwilling or unable to engage in anything other than vulgar and infantile bletherings and rants. The latest of these consist of personal comments and innuendo against Mr David McConaghie. Mr McConaghie has voluntarily stepped down from the Caleb Foundation and, in light of the ongoing police investigation, we do not intend to make any further comment at this time. Nor do we intend to provide a platform for others to make their comments, and the Forum has therefore been closed until further notice.

  5. And although Caleb Foundation may have cut him loose as something of an embarrassment, seekers after TRVTH may still find a selection of David McConaghie Audio Sermons online.

    I confess, I have not myself listened to any (life is short), but the titles are awfully tempting, e.g.

    * The Revelation of Jesus Christ
    * The Saints Everlasting Chorus
    * The Gospel According to Paul

    If only the last mentioned one were the “Gospel According to Paul Broun”! What a treat that would be!

  6. Oops, that should be “Revelation” of Jesus Christ — and hopefully, not undertaken in the loo…

  7. Great catch, Megalonyx. So now he’s out of the Caleb Foundation too? It’s a terrible thing that they can’t be more tolerant of McConaghie’s lifestyle.

    Meanwhile, I can’t get this out of my mind:

  8. I see what you did there, Curmy…

    And it’s more apposite than I at first realised, at least if Wikipedia is to be trusted here. See Skip to My Lou:

    … In early America, ‘respectable folks’ in strict Protestant communities regarded the fiddle as one of the devil’s tools (if it led to dancing, which was regarded as sinful). Faced with such a religious obstacle to socializing, young people developed the “play-party,” in which all the objectionable features of dancing were removed or masked so that grave elders would overlook their activity.


    The “loo” in the title is the Scottish word for “love.”

    The Scottish dialect on this is new to me. In the UK generally, “loo” is a jocular derivation from WC (=”Water Closet”, more playfully as “Waterloo Closet”).

  9. @ Curmy: with the closure of the Caleb Foundation Forum, I trust that anti-Creationist “vulgar and infantile bletherings and rants” can still find a home here on your blog?

    CS says…More than that, it’s viewpoint discrimination. 🙂

    … In early America, ‘respectable folks’ in strict Protestant communities regarded the fiddle as one of the devil’s tools…….
    It causes people to take unnecessary risks on roofs, too.

  11. Megalonyx inquires:

    Bathroom humor is always welcome — provided it’s in good taste.

  12. SC: “Bathroom humor is always welcome — provided it’s in good taste.”

    Could you give a few examples of what would be acceptable? We need some guidelines.

    Your very clever comment calls to mind the old Starkist commercial: “Sorry, Charlie — Starkist wants tuna that tastes good — not tuna with good taste.” Glad you didn’t make the same reversal.

  13. retiredsciguy asks: “Could you give a few examples of what would be acceptable?”

    Sure. There’s no news today, so I’ll soon have a whole post full of Curmudgeon-approved bathroom humor.

  14. Okay I’m really looking forward to when this thing blows over. I’m getting sick of seeing my name over and over!

  15. I would like to propose to our Curmudgeon, that McConaghie should at least be considered for Knights of Uranus membership status.
    Anybody in favor of seconding a nomination that he be considered?
    This is big, really big.

  16. doodlebugger says: “I would like to propose to our Curmudgeon, that McConaghie should at least be considered for Knights of Uranus membership status.”

    An excellent suggestion! The next time he appears in the news, it’ll be done (if I remember).

  17. Bathroom humor is always welcome, hunh? Good. How about a limerick?

    In an outhouse a fellow named Clyde
    Fell in one of two holes, and he died.
    The next day his brother
    Fell into the other,
    And now they’re interred side by side.
