tinfoil-hat maggie: Gyrfalcon: Oh, yes, especially after I checked out that 55-gal. drum of lube.

I'm almost afraid to ask how you find these things. Afraid, but more excited.

Um, would you believe me if I said a friend told me about it?
/Oh, yea check out the comments on it. The earlier ones were best. Trust me ; )


No.

And I always trust you, but the safe word is "Stop you crazy biatch!"

MayoSlather: If there was a god, he or she would rebuke the spirit of Pat Robertson. And then buke on it all over again.


This may have already happened. He may be a shade, sent back here to teach us about gullibility. Poor bastard has his work cut out, doesn't he?

Its not going to work, the spirit of deafness can't hear it.

gilgigamesh: With the shiat he claims to believe, Pat Robertson makes a half naked prancing witch doctor shaking a skull on a stick seem like an erudite Northeastern intellectual.


I just pictured a not-dead William F. Buckley at the Republican National Convention, drolly attired.

Darth_Lukecash: 0z79:  I'd been wondering why many are so vicious and rude towards Christians, or why me saying I believe in God lead someone to say "Oh yeah? My God is your gallon of milk. I FARKED IT THIS MORNING!!"

Then I read crap like this...


I'm not sure I've ever heard the atheist argument of GOD= Milk + Sexual intercourse before...


The person involved was just trying to be as crude and vulgar as possible.

They then spent 15 minutes calling me every kind of deluded fool, with their close friends laughing at my expense, with a grand finale of "FARK YOUR "GOD"!!!"

All I said was "Yes, I do believe in Jesus Christ as my savior."

They asked....

Yes, but have you checked out the comments yet? Just look for Jerome Albertson.

Wow, people like that sicken me. If they were born into the Westboro Cult Clan they would feel fine doing something similar just to different people. I hate extremist of any kind and the people that are willing to exchange ideas there cool in my book.

hardinparamedic: BKITU: Nor for the spirits of amputation or physical deformity. Those never seem to get prayed to health.

According to some denominational beliefs, like Christian Science, those were punishments from God because of their sin.


But if they are born that way how did they have a chance to sin? Was it a pre-emotive strike?

Isitoveryet: i would have told the mother looking for advice to accept her child as he/she is.

deaf people rock! they are slightly better than people with all 5 senses intact .

& Pat Robertson is proof there is no God, what God would let this....man (for lack of a better word) represent him to the masses of shiat-for-brains jackasses?


Maybe god has a sense of humor?

megarian: tinfoil-hat maggie: megarian: tinfoil-hat maggie: megarian: WE'RE ABOUT TO GAY!

/no snark, actually quite confident and excited

Very cool, good to hear.

Baby steps. Not with actual babies.

...but why?

/Off to Amazon to find baby shaped slippers.

Because their intestines make my toes feel weird. And gay. Weird and gay. Weirday.



Weregay? Is that where you turn gay when there's a full moon?

Mithiwithi: falkone32: Farking Canuck: These are in your religions ... why does it offend you to call them what they are??

They also overwhelmingly deny astrology, yet overwhelmingly accept that the birth of their king was announced by a star and that the star was correctly interpreted by a bunch of "wise men".  By magic and astrology, they mean pagan magic and pagan astrology.  That is, the distinction is not made based on the nature of the thing, but instead on whose group the ritual belongs to.  They ignore that pagan magic worked almost as well as their own in scripture.

I remember one "smug and self-assured atheist" article pointing out that praying is basically casting a spell - it's just doing so via an authorized supernatural power.

There's actually an old computer RPG called Darklands that actually made this explicit - it was set in a version of medieval Europe in which black magic and alchemy actually worked, and your party could include priests that could call upon the saints for tangible benefits. Of course, all good Robertson fans know that praying to saints is idolatry, but still.


Traditionally magic spells have always been synonymous with prayers. It's only recently that the Latin phrases or D&D mumbo jumbo has become a replacement for our current generation's view on spells and has been divorced from petitions and sacrifices to gods or angels or spirits as was standard in the past.

I really flustered a god person by pointing out that according to his "good book" all rapists, murderers and child molesters have to do to get to heaven is ask for forgiveness and mean it, and they get in. A fellow believer backed me up, by saying the only unforgiveable sin is not believing.

Oh, so my mom, who lost her hearing at 25 (after earning a Master's degree in Music) must have affronted Gawd and Jay-sus so much that He chose to take her hearing through a genetically proven disease in our family line. Perhaps she should have prayed harder to rebuke the spirit of deafness that took her livelihood and passion for teaching music away before allowing those secular doctors - most of whom will soon be receiving Obamacare - to put a cochlear implant in her head at a cost of $100,000+, thereby restoring her hearing to near normal. She has now returned to a life of teaching piano lessons and is the head music director at her church. Secondly, I bought her an iPod as a "welcome back to hearing" gift that I filled with awesome, non-Jesusy music that I knew she loved prior to going deaf and we've been building on that collection ever since. Her got-damn LIFE was restored through SCIENCE, not Jesus, and none of us in her circle of family and friends could be more thankful. Pat Robertson can go fark himself with something hard and sandpapery.

Darth_Lukecash: notyomama: I know a girl who has cerebral palsy and has been in a wheelchair since she was little.  She told me one the most difficult things about it was dealing with the people that tell her if she prayed harder or her faith was strong enough, she could get out of that chair.  Then they tell her they will pray for her since she's obviously doing it wrong.


//She's far too polite to tell them to get farked.  I am not.

That just brought up a whole bunch of bad memories.

I'm handicapped, spent a lot of my childhood in body cast, wheelchairs and walkers. Once, when I was 9, I was grocery shopping with my mom in a wheelchair.

My mom went to the baker counter to get the cake we had ordered, so I hung back away from the crowded area.

Two little old blue haired ladies came up to me and aske "Well what was your sin, little boy"

"I'm sorry mam?"

"Well, you are obviously in that wheelchair because you disobeyed your parents and got hurt"

"No, I was born like this"

"Oh, so it's your parents sin, we will pray for you"

Fortunately, I was Catholic at the time, and we were taught by Jesuits that science determines illness and God doesn't punish people that way.

Then of course I became an Atheist about 10 years later.


Ive been in a wheelchair about four years now since a car accident. I am so ove rpeople telling me I must JUST try this faith healer, this remedy, acupuncture, but most of all - they will pray for me. Nic elf them, but couldn't they do something useful?

/ really HATE the people who tell me I just have to 'try harder'. What - force my spine to regenerate the damaged discs, nerves, muscles and bones? Well, damn. If only I had thought of doing that earlier. Just finish my cup of tea and get right on it.

// a'holes.

/// If I wasn't an atheist already, would have become one by now.

I find that the trick is to avoid college sophomores.  They go through a phase.  Sorry to hear that you were beset by aholes.

In the RPG "D&D" this is how cleric spells work. The cleric isn't actually doing the magic themselves. They are praying to their god to do some magic for them ... like healing or banishing demons/spirits, etc.

Maybe that is what the Cure Blindness spell is. I always assumed it was a healing spell but, if Robertson is right, it is a banishing spell for blindness demons.

I have an aunt who is dead thanks to this mentality.

My aunt used to watch as much of Robertson as she could, and she was big on faith healing. Benny Hinn was another of her favorites. At one point she told me that my daughter's autism was caused by a demon inside her and that if we posted scripture around her room and prayed hard enough and rebuked the demon of autism that she would cease to be autistic. Anyways...

My aunt went years without seeing a doctor or even so much as taking an aspirin-- instead opting to pray away the pain, which never seemed to work. She'd say that it was only because she wasn't praying hard enough. Finally, my mother talked her into seeing a doctor, and as it turned out, she had uterine cancer. Of course, by then it was beyond the point where the doctors could do much for her, and my aunt insisted that God had given her cancer because she'd lacked faith and let herself be talked into seeing a doctor. For the few months she had left after that, her house was practically wallpapered in Bible verses that she insisted would cleanse her of her cancer.

It didn't.

Delawheredad: IF it worked that way EVERY hospital would be empty and there would be no atheists. Want to rebuke the deafness? Fine as soon as you are done with that see a medical specialist.


But if god did that, people would know he existed and that would destroy faith (this is what christians believe). It it quite hilarious when you realize that everything in christianity boils down to, 'because I/he said so'. Nothing is demonstrable as that would prove god exists thereby nullifying his mystique and power, so just take my word for it instead...

/ thats a nice house of card christians have there...

supayoda: I have an aunt who is dead thanks to this mentality.

If only she had listened to more Benny Hill instead of Hinn...
