Stay classy, Christians.

And you people wonder why I can't stand most of you. Next time you ask why people don't like you or your cult, add this to the LONG ASS FARKING LIST.

Didn't RTFA yet, but this is very typical of SC... I swear there are some of the more backwoods, racist, stupid people down here... (And a lot of very smart and progressive thinking ones too, so don't be offended if you are reading this you smart thinking nonracist SC'ers)

I imagine there is a very long list of things that asswipe and his moronic congregation don't know.

But I don't mean to offend anyone.

Time to yank their tax-exempt status.

Despite some criticism, Byrd says that the message will stay on the sign. He took the issue before his congregation Sunday night, and they decided unanimously to keep it.

They prayed on it, I'm sure, and were led by the Spirit to do God's will in this.

Byrd also said he doesn't want it to look like controversy forced him to take the sign down.

Ah. Well, that too.

Good to know God takes sides in political campaigns.

God, your followers are stupider than rocks.
 
2008-04-21 10:52:20 PM
I just find it hard to believe that there are people who still buy it. The people spreading the misinformation know better, they just hope they can sway votes by lying.

This has nothing to do with the guy being a Christian.

This has everything to do with him being an asshole.

IrateShadow: Time to yank their tax-exempt status.

I came here to post this. I'm sure that if confronted with this option, the congregation would re-vote 100% the other direction.

The saddest part is how many people honestly BELIEVE that the two are related somehow, if even idiologically.

As an SC resident, let me apologize right here. It is a small town though, and pretty much in the middle of nowhere.

I think it has everything to do with him being the worst kind of Christian. I'll grant that he's an asshole, but he's pushing his assholery on the platform of his faith, and at that point leaves the nature of his religion open to question.

I understand your point. I just wish that, when idiots like this wield their faith so destructively, the larger Christian community would respond with more vocal condemnation. That doesn't happen nearly often enough, and if Christians aren't willing to make the differences between themselves and guys like this clear, they shouldn't be upset when the rest of the country conflates them.

Dear South,

You know how there's the long standing hope that the South will "rise again"? Now's your chance! Go ahead and secede, we probably won't put up much of a fight.

This is true. My bad. I was half kidding anyway. I just don't appreciate it when I see people show such hatred towards people I don't have a problem with.
Except for Atheists who act the same way on the double edge sword of extremism.

Dear South,

I am envious of your long growing seasons and the abundance of coon-skin caps in souvenir shops. But I have to tell you, it's called "soda." Not "coke." This confuses people, and I hope you will give the word 'soda' the attention it deserves.

Party on, y'all,

Us members of the 'Real church' are getting a big kick...

It is God's will for us to be peaceful and love thy neighbor, except when some guy decides he knows better and everyone just goes along with it.

Dear North,

The use of the word 'soda' is acceptable and should be encouraged. However, there are reliable reports that many of you use the word 'pop' to refer to soda. This is absolutely unacceptable and must be abolished.

Sincerely,

And the sad thing is, Arnold is pushing through incentives to help CA become the tech leader for the 21st century, while Perry says he wants to, and appoints someone who believes the earth is 6000 years old as the head of the schoolbook committee.

Believe me, I know my state has problems.

Looks like there's a church in S.C. that's a little, shall we say, bitter.

Keep clinging, asshats, keep clinging.

Hey, if the reporters can't keep it straight, then what chance do us bitter mortals have?

Dear South,

I wholeheartily agree! We must crush this 'pop' insurrection before things get out of hand. Off topic, but- why do your lawyers talk like that? Our lawyers always sound like community theater drop-outs.

Or root beer.

Dear North,

As we have come together so well on the soda issue, I feel I can trust you with the secret of our lawyers. You see, they're actually large blue space chickens in disguise.

Wow - reading that, I found myself imagining an old, fat hick with a thick, stupid sounding drawl.

Note to Rev Byrd:

In the rest of America, we use SURNAMES to signify family affiliation. I can see why that might be a problem for you.

FTFA: When asked if he believes that Barack Obama is Muslim, Byrd said, "I don't know. See it asks a question: Are they brothers? In other words, is he Muslim ? I don't know. He says he's not. I hope he's not. But I don't know.

Dear North and South,

We were going to say something, but it was raining outside, so we just went into the pub and raised a pint to you both.

Nice. It was never intended to hurt or offend, but it did. So they are just going to leave it up anyways.

There's no way that isn't a political message. They are explicitly saying "Don't vote for Obama because he is Muslim." The pastor doesn't even deny it.

Yank away their tax-exempt status. They are officially a politically-minded organization.
 
2008-04-22 12:13:02 AM
Ahem.

All you Islamophobes out there forwarding bullshiat email rumors and talking shiat about peoples, cultures, and religions you know nothing about (outside of the most idiotic phrase of the last decade (new window))---this stupid shiat is YOUR F*UCKING FAULT.

Churches shouldn't be tax-exempt in the first place. They are clearly profit organizations, and therefore should be taxed as such.

Not when you put it on your CHURCH MARQUEE. This asshole is selling his bigotry as Christianity. But then he's probably been fleecing his little flock for some time in other ways too.

Here is another one that's going to blow your mind:

"Oo ba ma" translates to "He's with us" in Persian.
