I guess they ran out of toilet paper. I suppose they think the first amendment makes good ass-wiping paper.

Electricity is not in the Bible, so with every passing day, with every viewing of "Hooper" on Betamax, with every hot glue gun bedazzling a Dale Earnhardt denim jacket, with every Godly man sneaking to the back room of the Grange Hall to have his "fishin' buddy" wield a Mule Tamer 5000 and plumb his sinful depths the Lord makes yet another mark in Book of Yer Farkedery.

Those guys should secede so that God is free to start blessing them. I'm sure within a year they will be the most prosperous nation on Earth.

If you're against either gay marriage or abortion, don't vote - pray. Pray to our ALL powerful god to stop it.

If you think that isn't enough, you lack faith.

Matthew 21:21
Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done.

Do it

This. The first time I heard "the Cult of Mary" I had no idea what they were talking about.  I didn't have the heart to tell them that if Catholics aren't Christians, then they truly are a minority.  They just go along with them because they share some of the same beliefs, otherwise they cannot stand the filthy Papists.

Try Paulites. Christians follow the teachings of Paul far more closely than the teachings of Jesus.

Look, it's what Jesus would have wanted. Let's not get all up in arms about using faux-piety to veil the fleecing of the general public for the embiggenment (embiggening? embiggenation?) of some rich jagoffs' retirement accounts.

I'll bet that when you're born, you're allotted x-number of answered prayers. We probably blow through almost all of them when we're kids and don't even know it.
Kid: Dear God, please don't make us have liver and onions for dinner tonight. Amen.
Dad: Hey, kids! Who wants pizza and ice cream?
Kid: THANK YOU, JESUS!

The mass exodus of remotely sane individuals from the south would be of biblical proportion. Sadly though, it would fark over a lot of poorer people who can't afford to just pick up and move when the south starts to make laws against being gay, female, black, messican, poor, educated, well spoken, and literate.

I usually don't trust highly partisan sites (of any persuasion), so when I read the headline I clicked the link assuming some sort of exaggeration.

Christ, there's video.

Alabama, I'll give you credit for one thing: You give my state of Louisiana the rare opportunity to look down at someone and laugh. Granted, the next day we do something idiotic and you get to laugh at us. But still, the rare opportunity to say, "Jesus, at least we're not that stupid" is a rare treat.

You guys do realize that that the letters of Paul were written at least 20 years before the Gospels were written, and that it's you can't assume that what actually made it into the final cut wasn't editorialized by the disciples of Paul, right?

Just let a few 'hail Satan!'s rip.

It's so much easier than trying to make them realize how dumb they are,and it will have the same result.

I firmly believe that most of the ringleaders for shiat like this don't even believe the shiat they're spewing.

Whether they do or not, it doesn't have shiat to do with prayer. It's just a way to preemptively unite the weaker minds in the room behind you and drive a point home to those who might be considering independent thought.

2013-07-25 07:13:58 AM  
It makes sense to me. You see, I'm a "Jesus take the wheel," kind of guy. What these guys are saying is, "Jesus plan my town." I applaud their efforts at trying new things. When was the last time you tried praying for a better electric infrastructure. Maybe that's why your state is broke, while the people of Alabama are sitting on a pile of surplus cash, ready to be thrown at yet another legal challenge to abortion.

God has already formally rejected prayers against gay marriage.

What we need to be doing is figuring out that number and structure the Sunday school lessons around that.
I would tithe the ever-loving crap to a church that can give a me a concrete number.
