PC LOAD LETTER: The South still remains painfully, hopelessly stupid.
phrawgh: God will reward them for this brave act. Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history.
Arthur Jumbles: If someone was going to paint a giant mural in front of my house I'd like to have some input on what it will look like. I'm kinda siding with the religious wackos on this one.
markie_farkie: Fish are satanic?[files.abovetopsecret.com image 508x212]Hmmm.
Sudlow: It was a pretty ugly mural that seems to have been put up without full permission on property not owned by the city.translation: pretentious art dbags decided to spread their "vision" in a place they had no right to be. Not every wall needs a mural.
Langdon_777: I hope someone is going to get in trouble for vandalising the public art work
Great Janitor: So...if Snakes are satanic, what about Doctors who's emblem is a pole with two snakes wrapped around it? What about those Snake Worshiping Christians?If it is a reference to the part in the Bible where the Serpent gets Eve to eat from the Tree of Knowledge, then they may be doing the wrong thing. From what I understand, when the Serpent tempted Eve, it wasn't snake-like. It didn't become snake like until God punished it for it's role in the temptation of Eve. Even the Bible mentions this part where God is cursing the Serpent telling it that it will forever crawl on it's belly, to be stepped on by man's boot (before man actually invented the boot...go figure), so, follow this logic, and you'll see that the snake is actually God's creation, so to paint over it might actually be insulting God.
Great Janitor: What about those Snake Worshiping Christians?
dameron: It's all a matter of scale.
The Muthaship: Great Janitor: What about those Snake Worshiping Christians?Christians who handle snakes don't worship them. They do that because there's scripture that says true believers will not be harmed by the venom of snakes.They die regularly from this misconception, but they don't worship snakes.
advex101: It is ugly. I side with the religious d-bags on this one. Also, "GDOT crews said they didn't issue a permit for the mural and will likely have to cover it up."
The Muthaship: That was dumb. They should have painted over it because it was ugly.
peasandcarrots: You know, at this point I'm just going to make a list of random things that are "satanic," find a Bible verse to justify it, and just go through the South accusing every God-botherer I can find of being in league with the Devil. Grits? Satanic! Pickup trucks? The devil's transport! Fish stickers? The mark of the Prince of Lies himself!
I_Hate_Iowa: Whenever I read something like this - "The fishes were satanic. The scales were satanic" - I can't believe Christians are still somehow considered less mentally ill than someone with schizophrenia.
Kevin72: It was ugly
Sudlow: Gyrfalcon"Well, whether or not the residents had input is one thing. Painting over a mural because you think it is "satanic" is something else entirely. I note that in this case the residents are NOT complaining because the thing was ugly or that it doesn't meet standards; they are upset because it was "satanic" and that's not a valid reason to just up and paint over something."The use of "satanic" is from a guy that was part of the group that put up the mural. None of the residents are quotes using that word
