Because a Zealot is a Zealot is a Zealot

And in other news, some Christians work hard to make the rest of us look like jerks.

A sign in front of a Baptist church on one of the most traveled highways in the county stirred controversy over religious tolerance and first-amendment rights this weekend.

A sign in front of Danieltown Baptist Church, located at 2361 U.S. 221 south reads “The Koran needs to be flushed,” and the Rev. Creighton Lovelace, pastor of the church, is not apologizing for the display.

Actually, he has much to apologize for: being intentionally mean-spirited is at the top of the list. While rioting and murdering over the alleged vandalism of a book--even a book of holy writing accepted as being, in essence, the worldly projection of the voice and will of God--is ultimately foolish, it is just as idiotic to show that level of callous disregard for the beliefs of Muslims.

Yet another where I could never, in good conscience, be a member.

It is amazing to me that we find the attributes of God where most don’t dare look, and see them least where so many sanctimoniously believe them to exist.

And there’s an unhappy truth.

Sounds like he’s just abiding by Commandment #1 to me…

Uhhh, Andy?  Isn’t Allah Arabic for God?  So how is that following commandment #1?  Also, too many fundies forget the summation that Jesus gave of the law and the prophets.  Anytime someone wants to justify, say, capital punishment by quoting OT Levitical law, I just ask them which of the other four hundred something (so, that’s not the exact number, maybe not even close, but you get the point) they are also going to personally keep and publically enforce.

Uhhh, Andy?  Isn’t Allah Arabic for God?  So how is that following commandment #1?

Yes, but I have my doubts that Christians, Muslims, Jews, and Mormons all believe they worship the same god (some of them probably claim to do so, but the gods in each sure look different to me).

It’s akin to saying that both versions of “Dawn of the Dead” are really the same movie. smile

Besides, let’s remember one thing: you’re all wrong and there is no god. 

Now, give us a hug. smile

Way to make the rest of North Carolina proud you assclown. (The church not you ZB.)

Andy,
What?  No “Binky the Space Clown”, even?

Nathan,

Sadly, no, I’ve come to realize that even Binky is a man-made construct used first to explain the unknown and then to control the masses.  I only regret that he won’t be around long to be exploited for commercial gain or religious war.

Andy, you call this picking?  I have seen some serious venom come out of you so I consider this a minor spanking.

I have had some thoughts recently that I need to investigate concerning Abraham and God’s promise to him regarding his descendents- seeing as Jews, Christians, and Muslims all claim him as the “father” of their religion.

And I most certainly concur with you, kind sir, the Mormon god is not in the least the same as the other three.  Perpetual sex with a Heavenly Mother?  Uhhhh, hmmmmmm.....

I’m sorry, did someone say “spanking?”

Is there a queue I can join?
