this is the same guy who was pissed that a recent medal of honor recipient hadn't killed enough gooks or something. he's a total farking asshole and a disgrace to christianity.

The Raw Story published comments made Monday by Fischer, the director of issues analysis for the fundamentalist Christian organization, during his daily radio show, "Focal Point."

I read that as Fecal Point, and interestingly enough, it seems more appropriate.

Going back to yesterday's thread about Christians being their own worst enemy...

This is exactly what that article was talking about.

Of course they do. The AFA never misses an opportunity to push their agenda.

Well, I don't know about you guys, but whenever I shoot a bunch of people I picture them as a terrifying Australopithecus.

As famous prison creationist says, "if you teach kids that they are animals then you can't be surprised when they start acting like animals."

He also claimed to be a scientist and science teacher.

Guys, my bad.

I'm really sorry about this. I totally forgot to offer my burnt offering this month - my biggest and strongest firstborn sheep. I know the smell of its burning flesh is pleasing to the Lord, but I've just been so busy that I forgot.

I'm sorry that I incurred His wrath.

Christians are generally the leading cause of disgrace to Christianity. Terrible QC at the plant, I suspect.

Just another example of any organization with the word Family in their name being full of bigots and complete morons.

I'm actually curious about their position on flying kites now.

So "slopes" refers to cranial shape? It still sounds a little racist, frankly.

Whenever I see Aurora I think of Aurora Snow.

/she's also caused multiple shootings

Didn't Jeffrey Dahmer say that the reason he killed and ate 17 people was because Evolutionism teaches that life has no meaning? Maybe there's something to that.

Barking and rambling while humping a choir boy or selling magic prayer rags to lonely seniors, recall: That's nearer, my God, to thee.

Well, you'd better hurry and bring back 200 foreskins from the neighbouring tribe before it's too late and we all get boils.

Cain killed Abel because he was taught by God that he was an evolved monkey.

JERRY FALWELL: And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say "you helped this happen."

It is God's fault that those people got shot.
He could have smited Holmes, but his 2nd Amendment rights were curtailed when he had to leave all his powers at home because the theatre would not allow him to bring them inside.

Kent Hovind.

Next time someone throws that line about teaching people they're animals at you, ask if the only thing keeping them from raping and murdering anyone is fear of God's wrath. I acknowledge our membership in Animalia, I'm an atheist, and yet I actually like to be nice to others and do good things for them, so I'd like to know what their excuse is.

There's crazy,

And then there's the American Family Association.

So, the AFA is now Westboro Baptist without the signs.

"We have spent 60 years telling God to get lost," Fischer said. "What if every single day in [James Holmes'] educational process, there had been readings from the word of God ... Who knows if things could have been different. But we've tried it the other way. The point of my column, we've tried it the liberals' way for 60 years now. What do we got? We have massacres in Aurora."

Previously to that we spent 2000+ years educating people based on religion and guess what, there were plenty of massacres then too.
 
2012-07-25 11:02:00 AM  
We let the church have a go at running society once - they liked to disembowel people, set people on fire, drown women, etc. I don't need to go back to the dark ages, I want as little religious involvement in my life as possible.
 
2012-07-25 11:02:25 AM  
American Taliban sums these guys up nicely. The only groups I really need protection from are Government and Christians.
 
2012-07-25 11:02:37 AM  
... But don't bring up gun control because it would be wrong to politicize this tragedy.

\\ Don't think gun control would've prevented this tragedy
\\ Don't think a bystander with a concealed weapon would've fared much of a chance of taking on a guy with an automatic weapon and covered in body armor

It doesn't seem like much more of a stretch than people claiming that firearms or the NRA is to blame.

But those were the work of the Whore of Babylon in Rome or the moon-god worshippers or good followers misled by Satan. No true Scotsman Christian ever committed a violent crime that the target didn't deserve.

/saw a howard zinn line recently. paraphrased: the truly greatest crimes and slaughters in history weren't the result of disobedience, but of obedience

I had that conversation once with one of them...

See, according to them the fact that you are nice to people and don't go all rapey on them Is God. Even if you don't believe in him, he's still the source of all good. You're doing Gods will without even realizing it.

Do not follow up this conversation with asking them to reconcile this concept with Free Will.

You can't really expect anything intelligent under the heading "family values".
The phrase is actually a slur wrapped in an oxymoron. The word "family" is a concrete - it represents an actual, corporeal Thing. The word "values" is an abstract - it represents a Concept.
The phrase "family values" makes as much sense as "bowling-ball values".
But the intent is not to make sense - it is to cast a vague, evocative aspersion.
The real message is "MY family and MY values are valid. YOUR family and YOUR values are not."

Bullshiat in, bullshiat out.

You guys remember when Western civilization was basically ruled be theologians, and everyone had no other choice but the be Christian? Remember how there was no suffering and everyone was happy?

Yeah me neither. But that's only because I read history books (and also because I'm not 700 years old) Obama must have used his time machine again!
