Quote# 42073

The posts on this thread are all very thoughtful and I just want to say I appreciate you all! I just told a brother in Christ this morning, "If we never meet this side of heaven, I will meet you on that beautiful shore." I say the same to you all.
I, too, find myself sort of getting ready to go. There's no bags to pack! But I did go thru my keepsakes last fall - I mentioned this once before in another thread - but I found a bunch of love-letters between me and my dh from over 30 years of knowing each other. I burned them. They were not appropriate for anyone to read. Heads up, brothers and sisters, do you have anything to get rid of that might spoil your testimony to those left behind? Any books to burn? Tapes? Photos?

Get rid of the evil evidence!

the burning destruction of intimate thoughts over decades between lovers seems to me to be more blasphemous and saddening than anything any unbeliever has ever said. I truly pity you.

Mister Spak

Those amature orgy tapes have to go.

7/1/2008 12:17:32 PM


Yeah! The rapture has come and all hell has broken loose. Let's all go over to Maggie's place and read her love letters.

Get a clue. Nobody gives a fuck about your letters. What a self centred bitch.

Uh oh. Fundies are covering their tracks! Hey, maybe they'll unsubscribe from their ISPs if they're so ready to go. You can always hope.

Me again

That's so sad.

You could have at least scanned them in and password protected them.

So, she is essentially telling people to lie to anybody "left behind."

Won't eveyone know anyway?
I meanan they already know that you are a liar because there is no evidence in torah of a rapture.

@aaa Destroying evidence indeed.

Mr Smith

Wake up Maggie, I think I've got something to say to you!

Why does it always come back to burning books for these people?

7/1/2008 12:41:16 PM


Why the hell should she care what people on earth think about her if she's in heaven? Idiots, I swear.

Any books to burn? Tapes? Photos?

Sounds like porn to me.

In this day and age you are lucky enough to have a collection of love letters from your husband and you burn them because of your stupid religious fears? Freaking idiot!
Yeah, burn everything, then go sit naked on a hilltop waiting for Jeebus.
Freaking idiot.

I have gigabytes of porn on my computer that I will leave behind. I only hope it makes someone else as happy as it made me ;)

One day, either you or your husband will be left alone and missing those letters, realizing the full impact of what you have done.

Any books to burn? Tapes? Photos?

That way of thinking always reminds me of a scene in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".

[to Indiana, while watching a Nazi parade and book burning]
Professor Henry Jones: My son, we're pilgrims in an unholy land.

Allegory for Jesus

They call us arrogant for being atheists, and yet say with utmost confidence that they are Heaven-bound, not even considering the possiblity of their own damnation?

And it is very refreshing to see them burning materials of their own creation for once...

7/1/2008 1:19:39 PM


But God will still know, and if He's ok with the journey you made, why should you hide it from those left behind? You've got nothing to prove -- you got Raptured!

7/1/2008 1:22:34 PM


I am again utterly dismayed at the lengths to which the members of this death cult will go to destroy even the hint of a rumor that they once loved as a human does.

7/1/2008 1:24:26 PM


But it's a sin to love anything but Jeezus!

7/1/2008 1:27:09 PM


Ok, so you are so Holy enough that you will be raptured but sinful enough to worry about leaving behind inappropriate things.

I really don't think you have to worry about being raptured. I think you should worry about being killed in a car wreck and your wife then finding that video of you and Ted Haggard in a bathroom stall.

...I found a bunch of love-letters between me and my dh from over 30 years of knowing each other. I burned them. They were not appropriate for anyone to read.

What on Earth could be incriminating or immoral about love letters written by a husband and wife to each other? Do they contain evidence of crimes being committed?

I'm absolutely sure your husband appreciates the way you're systematically destroying any evidence of your 30 year marriage. If I was your spouse I'd be putting down a deposit on an apartment of my own. I'd also be securing legal counsel to guide me through my eventual divorce from you.

Get. Help. Now.

Jezebel's Evil Sister

Sounds like your h isn't really so very d to you.

Love letters from decades before a long marriage should be treasured – by you and anyone who finds them.

7/1/2008 1:44:30 PM


Madam, you are an asshole.

I will be so grateful when the last of your ilk are dead.

7/1/2008 2:12:30 PM


Somehow I doubt that there was anything in Maggie's love letters that couldn't be read aloud in front of a kindergarten class.

7/1/2008 2:22:57 PM


I wish I could be a fly on the wall when your husband comes home in a nostalgic mood and wants to go over those old letters.

If he's as fundie as you, you're probably in for one heck of a beating.

7/1/2008 2:30:47 PM


"Somehow I doubt that there was anything in Maggie's love letters that couldn't be read aloud in front of a kindergarten class."
Maybe the part where the rope broke and she was nearly crushed by the horse.

7/1/2008 2:32:03 PM


I was devastated when my sister accidentally threw out the small container that contained my love letters from an old boyfriend when she was helping me move after I had my baby. It takes someone really sick to see love itself as something to be ashamed of... pathetic, really.
