Quote# 45694

Americans have become soft and unfortunately so has the Christian church in America. We have so show some steel on our abs. We need to be bold in our witness, even if it means someone may be offended. If God is for us, who can be against us? Time is running short and many, many souls remain lost. We need to get cracking. We are fighting atheism, mormonism, Islam, Wicca, and a whole host of cults and false religions which make up the primary "ism" known as Satanism. Additionally, we are fighting the emergent church, which can suck Christians in who don't test the spirits and who are too easily given to the whims of the flesh.

It's go time! Let's put up our dukes!

Yep, that's American Christianity: obsessed with steely abs, still squishy-soft in the head.

What good are abs of steel, when you still lack even one decent leg to stand on?

We need to get cracking. We are fighting Christianity, atheism, mormonism, Islam, Wicca, and a whole host of cults and false religions which make up the primary "ism" of "not me and the 30 fundies that attend my pseudo-Baptist lunatic fringe fundamentalist church-ism".

There. Fixed.

Allegory for Jesus

Anyone else get sick of these Christians talking about evangelism as if it were physical combat? And yet call themselvs a peaceful religion despite their blatant, militant attitude...

Yeah God luck with that.

I keep thinking of that Seinfeld episode with the old guy, Mandelbaum;

"It's go time!"

Putting up your dukes might result in your ass getting kicked.

There was a time when you morons were quiet?

I'm thinking more of Scrappy Doo: "Put up your dukes, put up your dukes!"

Nobody liked him, either.

Who would Jesus fistfight first?

It doesn't do much good to have buns of steel if your head is wedged firmly up between them, as it is in JY11's case.

The Fundie to English dictionary defines "bold" as annoying, intrusive, oppressive and offensive.


David D.G. -- Well said.

Everybody else.


There's a quote on internetbumperstickers.com: "Remember, no matter what your religion, most of the world disagrees with you."

I'm a Wiccan. Keep your steel away from me or you'll find yourself eating it.

"If God is for us, who can be against us?"

See that assumption right there gets you in trouble. God isn't for you. If he even exists, he makes no effort to even acknowledge your existance.

Will he light a bonfire for you? Flash his name in the sky? Drop by and say hello? Could he even bother to tie your show or straighten your tie?

No. We must do everything for ourselves. And since you thrive in ignorance, the rest of us must pursue science so that you can continue to enjoy life while you condemn us all to hell.

You want us to believe in Jesus? All he has to do is drop off a workable plan for a fusion reactor that is within our technological means and we are all on board. But if he isn't even going to offer evidence that he exists, then he's fairly irrelevant to us then isn't he? There's a thousand other faiths that claim that there are right. Why should we believe in yours?

Wait, if the Rapture is so inminent, why bother so much in proselytising?. Could it be that the not-so-inminent-as-it-seems event prevents you of seizing on power to feed your megalomania?

"We have so show some steel on our abs. We need to be bold in our witness, even if it means someone may be offended."

So true. American fundies often fold like wet cardboard when their victim stands up to their bullying.

"If God is for us, who can be against us? "

Osama said the same thing about Allah. Maybe we can have a cage match. Two deities enter, one diety leaves.

"We are fighting atheism, mormonism, Islam, Wicca, and a whole host of cults and false religions "

You left out christianism.

"we are fighting the emergent church,"

The what? Does anyone know what this means?

Emergent church? Tell us more.

Interesting. It seems the 19th century model of christian fundyism is giving way to a theology based on a more recent social paradigm.
