4tehsnowflakes: TFA has an odd angle on the story, as if the group isn't OK but would be if only their message were more in line with mainstream proselytizing better tailored to kids.
Lando Lincoln: "You're a sinner and you're going to burn in Hell unless you take Jesus into your heart" is not exactly a new message.
Cluckity: Sounds like your standard Christian kids summer "bible school" thing. Don't they have these everywhere all summer long?
Marcus Aurelius: You have to indoctrinate children into religious ideology when they're young. Once they hit a certain age, they start to not believe in things like an omnipotent invisible triple sky god that you communicate with telepathically.
factoryconnection: FTA: CEF says Protect Portland Children is a shadow group run by atheists who seek to dismantle Christian outreach. [...] One prominent local pastor, Rev. Chuck Currie, wrote on our Facebook page:"As a minister in the United Church of Christ, I have deep concerns about the Good News Club and the message it spreads. I appreciate your work."Apply ice to burned area, CEF. Maybe pastor Chuck has some in the rectory fridge.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: Actually, WBC holds the title "Most Annoying Christian Group Since Christianity"/in perpetuity
Rev. Skarekroe: Cluckity: Sounds like your standard Christian kids summer "bible school" thing. Don't they have these everywhere all summer long?Yeah, it looks like the difference is that most Vacation Bible Schools are situations where you take your kids to them. These guys are finding places where kids hang out and preaching at them.
mama2tnt: Marcus Aurelius: You have to indoctrinate children into religious ideology when they're young. Once they hit a certain age, they start to not believe in things like an omnipotent invisible triple sky god that you communicate with telepathically.People HATE that I've taught the monsters logic and allowed them to make up their own minds./"Why are you an atheist?" is the hateful question I've been asked. My stock answer has now become, "Because I have a brain - and I use it."
Weaver95: Local pagan groups should start converting Christians to heathen gods. I'll bet our parties are way more fun!
maram500: Goddamnit. Nothing good ever comes out of Portland.NOTHING.
Ow! That was my feelings!: These people are worse than the WBC. Aggressively recruiting grade school age kids is worse than some dbags holding offensive signs.
K.B.O. Winston: they also wanted people to know they're from out-of-state?
fruitloop: I dunno, subs...[i171.photobucket.com image 434x326]...these guys are still pretty farking annoying.
