The four teenagers were standing near a baseball field huddled under some umbrellas when lightning hit them.

Huddling under some lighting rods in an open field isn't too bright.

Well, in fairness, it was the ted haggard christian camp for boys, if ya know what I mean..

//in all seriousness, it's good that they're alive after a direct strike..

I never understood crediting and blaming for God for things. Children die of cancer. Vice Presidents who have turned to the Dark Side live to be 100. Genocide occurs all over the country. People are inflicted with debilitating mental illnesses. Someone gets the promotion they prayed for and they cry, "Thank God!". WTF? Is there one explanation for any of this?

He doesn't exist.

My wife believes if He did ever exist, it wasn't a He. It was a Them (or They) and They left this world a long time ago.

Right. This is why Christians never say prayers asking for the Lord's protection. I have never seen a mother praying that her son gets home safe from school - she knows that if God wants to throw a flaming bus his way, he'll farking do it no matter what.

the whole "god did it" scheme is a WIN-WIN.

If they pray for a promotion at there job, and they get it, they can say "thank you god".

If they dont get it, they can say "god has a different plan for me" and not feel like a total loser.

They should have held hands. That way they would be extra safe if one of them got hit by lightning.

It could happen at any of the various religious camps.

My neighbors sent their kids to Dawkins camp for the summer, and every night they were infested by plagues of locusts.

Reminds me of a Paul Harvey parody I heard on the radio a long, long time ago.

"Church is being sued by parishoner who was struck by lightning outside the church. Church officials argued that the lightning bolt was an act of God. Jury replied that if God's throwing lightning bolts at your church you're doing something wrong."

I'm a firm believer in prayer.
When religious folks are over in the corner asking the air for help, they aren't burning me at the stake for being a heathen, or blowing me up for being an infidel.
Keeps 'em busy.

That's 100 per cent wrong. There is a complete difference between a prayer saying 'help me' and a statement that 'oh XXXXX is a (religion) so nothing can happen to them'.
Nobody believes that.

What part of Bible Camp do you think they would be safe in?

The 2:30pm 'How to Effectively Burn Pagans' class?

Perhaps the 1:00pm 'How to Use your "Church" as a total tax scam and set it up like a Business-networking-Country-Club' class?

Maychance the 'Abstinence is the only way' Class that is followed up by the 'ABC Family "How to properly handle a 'Blessed but Unintentional Teen Pregnancy"' class?

I'm thinking that no place at 'Bible Camp' is safe from the gods' anger...

That was my impressions when I read the headline too.

You know how there's a lot of people who go to church just they're not smote in case atheism is wrong? I'm way to lazy for that, but I avoid religious functions like the plague just in case.

Well, if you're going to be burned, numbness is a good thing... so, praise the Lord?

They are at Bible Camp...so I'm thinking their logic, wisdom, knowledge and having-their-own-ideas-areas would be constantly numb...

At least they were enlightened shortly after.

God has demonstrated repeatedly what lightning can do to people. All the info of existence is first hand and immediate, all around you. Light up a smoke, feel your heart rate increase. The voice needn't be any more subtle or blatant than that, but who listens?

Stop looking (and mocking) where there is nothing. No white beards or voice with reverb. Reality is loud and clear. Heavy up, Francis. This light shiat is for rationalising losers.

it seemed too much like my upbringing to want to see it. And yes, evangelicals are cultists and should be treated as such.

With the freedom to pursue their religion as they see fit, but without their children- because that's some f'd up shiate.

That's why Farkers should never go to church. Especially Bevets.
