i'm scared

of these people. These are Christians. This is one of the most disturbing videos I've come across. Advocating war with Iran? With heroes Tom DeLay, Rick Santorum and Joe Lieberman? It has the feel of a convention of UFO believers. Anyone know whether there's a way to find out if Pastor John Hagee gets a tax break for this political propaganda machine? Crimifuckinitly, this shit is insane.

And coming on the heels of this complete loony, Stu Bykofsky, writing for the Philadelphia Daily News, I am getting some serious crazy bad vibes. He says "America's fabric is pulling apart like a cheap sweater. What would sew us back together? Another 9/11 attack. The Golden Gate Bridge. Mount Rushmore. Chicago's Wrigley Field. The Philadelphia subway system. The U.S. is a target-rich environment for al Qaeda."

OMFG. I could barely get through that thing. Do people actually believe this crap? And does anyone wonder why atheists and agnostics are coming out of the woodwork at an ever-increasing rate?

Gee! Lynette, I bet Nova Scotia looks better by the hour!!

These people are seriously fucked!

Perhaps you'd better paint a big white cross on the suggested targets so that they don't make a mistake and get the wrong ones? Then you could all retire to a safe distance and watch the show!! (No, I'm not being serious!)

these people just freak me out. i can't get over them waving flags in church, listening to their minister urging an attack on iran, lobbying, ferchrissakes, in congress for an attack on iran. wtf????

from my almost total immersion in a missouri synod lutheran church from birth to 13, i cannot remember a single ~ not one ~ political commentary, ever. not one. i don't remember ANY condemnation of other groups of people or other religions. it was all about the individual in relation to the grace of God.

i don't know when this shit got started, but it is out of control when a huge church is advocating getting this country into a war. it is the arrogance of these politically oriented "churches" that just slays me. what right have you to speak for 300 million americans???

and the thing that in the end infuriates me beyond anything else is that there are millions and millions of good, honorable, loving, kind people of faith who are condemned for being christians simply because of wingnuts like these. that makes me crazy.

Tax the fuck out of them. sick freaks. The cynicism this implies is just mind numbing. We have fucked up the world, have committed endless violence and atrocity, so instead of fighting to make the world a better place for our descendants, let's all hunker down, pray, and wait for the rapture while we urge on the final conflict. These people remind me of the fascists, with their flag waving and calls for violence. Simply disgusting.

I just hope that interpretive dance shit doesn't become mandatory!

I'm sorry but I just have to laugh at these idiots. Anyone with half a brain knows they're nuts and not representative of Christianity.

Tater: Yes -- I think we should advocate for a LAW that states that ANY organization (churches included) who engage in political activism lose whatever tax-free status they might have otherwise enjoyed. That'll learn 'em.

Rodger: Yes, and -- it's still really disturbing. After all, how many of us with more than half a brain are left??! I wonder sometimes ...
