Interesting Book/Article Report

New postby Jolean » Thu Nov 15, 2007 4:38 pm

I didn't know where to put this, so I invented a new topic. This is a very funny article about the war being waged on Secularists.

Favorite quote:

"Christian organizations ...believe gangsta rap is almost as much of a threat to society as gay marriage, but when was the last time you heard 50 Cent give a shout-out to that faux-deity of so many atheist in-jokes, the Flying Spaghetti Monster? God and Jesus, on the other hand, are hip-hop icons, praised more often than Grandmaster Flash and Hennessy cognac."

Atheists have been enjoying a revival during the last few years.

We have? :huh:

At last year’s International Christian Retail Show in Atlanta, hundreds of vendors displayed a vast, rich Eden of Christian pop culture products

...and yet, my own wife and good friends think I'm the unreasonable one because I'm fed up and ready to fight against Christianity while armies of the faithful plot daily how to spread their particular brand of mental illness to as many as possible.

It’s time to evolve past the Darwin Fish and fill up nonbelievers’ stockings with atheist junk that’s as gloriously profane as the junk blessed by Jesus.

Athiest merchandise? Part of me wants to :roflmao: and part of me wants to :puke:

But the author aint wrong.

Thanks for posting that.

Okay, first of all Bud, fuck you. I've never called you "unreasonable". :P And second, holy crap, quit you're belly-achin'. It's embarassing. :furious: :roflmao:

Go ahead and fight Christianity, dude.

Does that make us as unreasonable as them?

You'd rather "quietly resist?" Look where that's gotten us.

I say, "to arms!"

...Damn! That's Christian symbology.

Do you mean "symbolism?" I don't know what symbology is, but I'm in b-school so what do I know?

"Wisely" was Dallas' penis' old name. Who at the time made 90% of his decisions and I was fortunate to be one of them. He has a new name for it that I will not disclose publicly. :wink:

Symbology would be the science or study of symbolism, but yes... I meant symbolism. :wink:

I believe that falls under the category of "too much information".

That's what I was thinking, too. Then again, someone's little brother is gonna take a good bit of ribbing for it. :twisted:

Exactly!

"Wisely" was only vaguely self-aware at the time. So I was easily able to overthrow him as chief decision-maker. There has been peace in the kingdom ever since...

I have to say that unreasonable never would be able to be
used for you and if you want to stem the tide, encourage
people to read. All Books.

Then, once they can read, teach them to question.

Once they can question, teach them to seek answers.

Then, once they can find answers, teach them to question
the answers.

And, while you're at it, create a media blitz that showcases your
point of view gun with all it wonderful glorious fabulous possiblities!!

:demon:
narrow minds


maybe even create a cartoon with a card game
that goes a long with it?
maybe get a computer to every child in the world?
maybe let the enemy believe they have won over
a significant cultural area while you use this same
culture to influence the youth of the rest of the
world?
create theme parks.

:roll:

I'm fairly certain all those techniques are already being used by Christians.

"Dollywood" is a christian theme park?

Okay, then what do you propose to do?

BTW,

Well, yes, didn't you get the invitation?
It came with the different party: times, locations
and themes.

Bill was great as the Court Jester from "O".
Or, was that the Court Jester from that Danny Kaye movie?

I understand Curt was Leopold from Ulysses up in Portland.

Never saw the show, so the reference is lost on me.

Decaffeinated brands are just as tasty. Or is therapy in order?

has stopped another discussion.
