Charlie Chingas: Tremolo: Onkel Buck: God or Charles Manson appeared on my iron

God or the Zig Zag man lives in my ottoman

At least one of those is Rasputin.

Also, being delusional and stupid must be awesome.

He just called you a chritian. You're going to take that?


Meh, I guess I'll just turn the other cheek like a Christian would. He knows he can fark off any time he is ready. I guess I would be pissed if I was a Christian, but my military dog tags said "no religious preference." I think religion causes more problems than it solves, but if your faith is what gets you out of bed in the morning, Im not going to take that away from you. Just dont come knocking on my door wanting to share it.

Raharu: I'd follow Aslan over Christ.

Aslan was intelligently designed.


Aslan had better hair, too.

This woman is a head case. She's the same one who claims that a rash of bird deaths in Arkansas was due to the DADT repeal.

Someone needs to tell her followers that they took the word "gullible" out of the dictionary.

T-Servo: Married with Children on God's shoes


If I was going to ascribe supernatural powers to any shoes, it would be those freaky finger toes running shoes. I can actually run in them with no pain, after giving up running because it hurt my knees and shins too much.

Forefoot strike FTW!

That's how I feel. I don't believe in their fairy tales, don't try to convince me they exist. If it works for you, fine. But it's too easy to poke fun of them when you question their faith or they get in a tiffy and look for proof about their faith, which contradicts the faith itself. Had a friend who's dog tags said Berserker. The rest of us weren't that witty.

Actually, I think the fundamental lesson here is less "worship the shoe" than "consider all of the millions of things that have to go right for your life to keep going, instead of focusing on the relatively few places they go wrong."

I mean, she's putting it all in a rather crazy way, but, I mean, you have to go crazy to communicate with Christians. The lesson itself is actually kind of nice, sort of a life-affirming "the world is a pretty nice place, sure things can go wrong but why focus on that?"

I mean, most of the improvements and awesomeness she's talking about are attributable to human ingenuity rather than god, but given that we also made up gods it seems like a reasonable conflation for a religious audience.

So, we should focus on the fact that them negro kids aren't starving, but they're getting enough to eat because they are still alive. Focus on the positive! he does work in mysterious ways!

HAMMERTOE: interesting how, as mankind's knowledge of the universe and physical laws has increased, belief in an imaginary friend has increasingly become a sign of immaturity or mental imbalance.

Back then:
"God just told me I must sacrifice my only son this very day!"
"Praise the Lourd!!!"

Now:
"God just told me I must sacrifice my only son this very day!"
"Hello, 9-1-1?"


...No,  actual symptoms of mental illness are considered symptoms of mental illness. Faith is not in and of itself a sign of mental illness. If you're going to cite science, can you get said science right, please?

/FFS, mental illness is not religion, and pretending they're the same makes you look like an uneducated tool.

Adults believing in imaginary friends would be what if not a mental illness? Someone talks to someone in their head if it's god. If it's something else...

Every time I eat Oreos I get to the end of the sleeve but I still want more. Where the hell is God at those times with this great food replenishing trick?

It's pretty well documented that, throughout history, every generation has felt like they were the last and that the world would end in their lifetime.

Counter_Intelligent: Can't say I give a fark.  I'm sure there are better things you could criticize this pastor for than her belief that durable shoes are gifts from the Lord.


Right. Let's wait until AFTER she goes all Jim Jones, turning herself from "preacher" into cult "prophet" THEN criticize her views.

Au contraire. Gawd is frequently revealed through tragedy or disease.

As someone who doesn't drive, and can absolutely destroy boots in a few months without very frequent re-soling and leather conditioning, perhaps I should try to find God next time I go out for a tin of Kiwi.

I had a sgt in my platoon whose dogs tags said Nortonism. He was a biker and was restoring this old Norton motorcycle. I PCS'd before he finished it. I would have liked to have seen the finished product

There's always Facebook. Found a guy I was stationed with. Went from being a Marine to Army. Found a few others. Best of luck!

Long lasting shoes and tires. It looks to me like some one has been experiencing the "Miracle of Festivus."

Huh. This is past due, but the "Delusional and stupid" was in reference to the woman in the article. Sorry for any misunderstanding.
