Ladies and gentlemen of the Hamilton County Commission, please join me in the following inspiring passage: "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn." Thank you, and may the Elder Gods show mercy on you all.

LarryDan43: jasonvatch: What a farking hypocrite. Any preacher who leads the Lord's Prayer in public has never read the Bible:

Matthew 6
"5 'And whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, so that they may be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward.

"6 But whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you."

...

"9 Pray then in this way:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name."
etc.

But how will people know I'm a good person that they should listen to if they don't see me praying?


Oh, there is merchandise for that. Please visit your local Christian bookstore for all your Jesus swag needs.

Weaver95: I wonder if the idiots realize that if they win their court case and DO manage to make prayer like this legal that they are also opening the door to allowing muslim and pagan calls to prayer legal as well....?



Hmmm... that actually has potential.

Oh Mighty Huitzilopochtli please accept the gift of the still-beating heart of my enemy, who I have sacrificed in your name. Amen.


We may now begin the County Commission meeting, secure in the knowledge that Huitzilopochtli smiles upon us. First order of business; does anyone still oppose my proposal from last week?

skullkrusher: whidbey: skullkrusher: yes, it is funny to mock people who wear Che shirts in 2012

Funny to you and a bunch of paranoid Teabaggers.

Maybe you should have them all over for a drink or something.

He is worthy of mockery, as are you

See above.

this is getting sad, W. Put me back on ignore. I think it's better for your mental health.


I'm not the one who is looking like some rabid fundie defending other morally bankrupt fundies while waxing 1993 on someone's dumb shirt as a distraction to the real issue, so no. Project, much?

skullkrusher: that's weird man.


Actually, harping on a stale cliched vision of people wearing Che shirts strikes me as kind of weird. What is this, 1993?

I'm guessing one of the previous decades called and want something back from you.

skullkrusher: whidbey: Lunaville: whidbey: I don't know if I should be amused or just irritated about how insecure people are about their religion.

The God you pray to would slap your b*tchy little ass if He heard you whining like this.

Which ones Whidby: the ones who demand Christian prayer prior to a government function or the ones who object to a standard Christian prayer prior to a government function? Or did you mean something else all together?

I'm pretty sure I meant whoever was whining about not having the "right" to impose their religion upon the rest of us.

nah, you meant whatever is going to make you seem edgiest. You need to see what sort of responses you get first before you can say what you meant


In other words, you have no real reply to me other than some stale snarky disingenuous comment.

Good ol' skullkrusher. An army of one.

If the jesus had been executed in modern times, does that mean that xtians would be wandering about all over the place with tiny, little, gold-dipped electric chairs hanging from their necks? Why, yes, I think that's what they'd probly' be doing.

skullkrusher: Bloody William: skullkrusher: why are people such farking pussies? Roll your eyes at their show and move on. Public prayer is worthy of mockery but it ain't gonna hurt you.
Unless they're saying you can't participate in the meeting unless you say the Our Father, get over it.

Do you want to know why? Not because of what it is, but because of what it represents and the message it sends.

The message is, "We are believers. We are in control. We make the laws. This is a nation of our religion."

It is saying that our laws are beholden to their form of Christianity.

It is saying that evolution will be removed from classrooms.

It is saying that abortions will be banned and those who seek abortions will be shamed.

It is saying that employers can deny their employees birth control through health insurance.

It is saying that science that contradicts religious dogma will be proscribed.

It is saying that your children will be told to pray in school, and that if they decide not to, even if they are allowed by the federally mandated rules, they will be ostracized and singled out.

It is saying that the Bible will be taught as history.

It is saying that you are not comfortable in your faith if it isn't forced on society as a whole, and if you do not share that faith you are by definition a lesser member of that society.

Do you honestly think this is about faith, when churches and homes offer enough space for anyone to pray? Or do you realize this is about saying "Remember, we're all Christians here, and if you're not, you should keep your mouth shut."

read the article.


It's funny, in the other thread you're a staunch defender of the First Amendment. Here, "Establishment Clause? Pffft. Quit whining."

Pincy: Explain to me again why religious people insist on injecting their religion into public meetings? Will God or Jesus or whoever not hear your prayers unless you attention whore at a public gathering?


People need to be reminded that America was created by God just for Americans. That's why he sent his only son to defeat the British and write the Constitution.

Karac: "It includes non-Christian faiths," Commission Chairman Larry Henry says. "The staff is mailing out the letters today, and we believe enough will respond quickly that we'll have somebody for an invocation when we meet next Thursday (July 12)."

Prayer leaders themselves will determine the content, Henry says.

How funny would it be for me to walk in there and ask to lead the prayer one day. I'd start off by chanting "Allahu Akbar" a few times, and it wouldn't matter that that's about all the arabic I know because there'd be an immediate riot.

Of for even more lulz, start off by intoning the Lord's Prayer in the original Aramaic.


I'd take it a step further and pray to one of Christ's predecessors, preferable one that has almost an identical story to his, but Christians typically don't know about. "Almighty Lord Dionysis, we ask today that you grant us strength. ....... All hail our savior Dionysis, our slain and risen God."

"Father, there's a lot of confusion as to how we should pray," Pastor Toby Brogden intones.
