Ku Klux Klan flags and white supremacy slogans surround the conference, which will conclude with a cross being set on fire Friday night. Organizers say it's not a cross-burning, but rather sacred Christian cross lighting.

Well yeah. I mean, Jesus would have lit his cross, except his matches got wet from all that vinegar.

There's not a thing wrong with Christianity

/Christians, on the other hand....

Bet their conference is straight out of that scene from O Brother Where Art Thou.

Doesn't everyone put a cross on the lawn of their local black or Jewish family and set it on fire during the holidays? It's so festive!

Lewis said of the conference-goers: "They are part of the chosen race."

Ah, so they're all Jewish then?

All of their beliefs seem to come from the Old Testament, so it stands to reason

Christian Identity Ministries is holding a three-day conference for so-called "white Christians" who contend they have been treated unfairly

Nobody is more oppressed in this country than white Christians.

Sadly, they couldn't get insurance coverage for the ceremonial feeding of Christoans to lions.

I don't know why, but the dancing Klansmen make me crack up every time I see that movie


and for some reason christians always accuse me of being a pagan who worships False idols when *I* light things on fire during rituals:

Came here to make an "al pastor" joke, thought I'd be the first one, completely underestimated you farkers. Well done, you magnificent SOBs.

Organizers say their ministry is not a hate group and that although there is a strong KKK presence, the Klan did not sponsor the event.

"Hey, this isn't a KKK event... we invite all white supremacist hate groups to join in, we don't discriminate!"
 
2012-07-05 04:32:05 PM  
I bet they have both kinds of music, too.

Can you have an Al Pastor fajita, or is that racist?

The link between any sort of historical Christian practice and Christian Identity is extremely tenuous at best. How anyone gets from "Male and female He created them" to "Adam is only the father of the White race" is seriously messed up.

Yes. Christian Identity is premised on British-Israelism, which asserts that Anglo-Whites are the true Jews.

If these were Muslims, southerners would be in an uproar! And blame all Muslims, globally. But when it's their fellow Christians... it's not a big deal. They don't represent all of us. Is just a small minority.

One's an extremely racist attempt to intimidate black Americans, and the other is an extremely racist attempt to intimidate black Americans without getting in trouble with the public for it.

Holy crap, I was joking. That's some seriously convoluted messed up shiat.

Barbara Tuchman wrote a book on the connection between England and Israel basically going back to pre-Jesus.

Its one of the biggest jokes of history that, the Roman Empire (and the lands it conquered) that destroyed the temple eventually came to worship a religion that looks forward to the reconstruction of the temple and its place as a central capital on earth.

Good one, Saul. Lots of luls there.

Well, as monks were known for brewing beer, could we say the NL has an entire team?

Well, that was easy to call.

These people make me wish their God was real, and he would come back and smite them.

this. I got as far as "AL pastor" and am now figuring out where the nearest taco truck is for dinner
 
2012-07-05 06:25:32 PM  
Yes, it is what it looks like, there is no denying it. However, isn't there other races that have hate groups such as this? Or "clubs" or whatever you want to call them that cater to only a secular or particular group / sex / denomination? i don't agree with them, but they have the right, as do other groups, of getting together for their yearly herp a derp fests.

/God bless America.

Is it wrong I sorta want to make fajitas out of this assclown and every attendant?

I wouldn't eat them of course, but I sure would enjoy the prep work...

/I've said too much
 
2012-07-05 06:28:54 PM  
I could go on all day about how much I can't stand the religious right in this country and their ignorant, backwards bullshiat, but all I really came in to say is that I'm definitely getting an Al Pastor burrito on my way home from work.
