No one goes to bed hungry that is trusting in God to provide for them.

Tell that to all those kiddies in Africa, Johnnyboy.

John, you are truly fucked in the head. Trusting in god to provide is a sure fire way to starve to death, because, guess what? God is a made up entity, there is no \"god\", and people starve, not from lack of faith, but from lack of food!
8/1/2006 2:47:20 AM
This is too stupid for words.
8/1/2006 2:48:23 AM
Of course not, Johnny, because the hungry ones quickly learn not to trust in \"God.\"
8/1/2006 2:49:34 AM
I guess those starving people need to trust harder!

JohnR7 sinks ever lower. Tune in next week, when he drops the intellectual bar even further!
8/1/2006 3:11:48 AM
I just had all four of my wisdom teeth pulled today and I'm on heavy drugs...but John, you're still more fucked in the head than I am.

Liar! Hah, hah!

Prayer has no calories. Devil's food cake does!

The name tells you all you need to know.

\"No one goes to bed hungry that is trusting in God to provide for them.\"
...says the guy who lives in a First World nation and eats three square meals a day.
Because as we all know, praying causes spontaneous breadstorms.

@Napoleon the Clown:
YANNITY (and colmes)
...that...was the best I could do.

If that was true you useless pricks never would've lost the crusades when your citadels were beseiged...
Shut the fuck up, you ignorant tool!
8/1/2006 5:18:15 AM
oh - and these people believed in your stupid God - fuck, they invented him!
These guys are soldiers.
I couldn't find the photo I wanted to use - it was far worse than these...
John - you're a fuckwit.

And at the next crossing he gets run over by a car because he beliefs Go will provide a safe passage across the road.
8/1/2006 6:44:56 AM
Tell you what, John -- why don't you spend a couple of months living out in the streets, scrounging through trash for food, and
try to say this again while keeping a straight face.

\"Liar of the Month\" award? What about all those people that became Christians just because Mother Theresa required it before feeding them? Isn't that blackmail?

'Manna From Heaven' Award?
8/1/2006 8:54:31 AM
Sure they do. They are just both hungry and deluded.
8/1/2006 11:10:31 AM
I always figured that JohnR7 was starving for attention.
8/1/2006 12:25:34 PM
OK JohnR7, let's put your theory to the test. I want you to go into the middle of the desert and stand there. I am sure God will be along to feed you eventually, and meanwhile, we will not have to put up with your ignorant posts.

Yet another twist on the \"if only you believed, all your problems would go away\" claim.
This is the same kind of asshat statement that draws people with terrible illnesses to evangelists for a \"healing,\" and then blames the failure of that healing on the lack of faith of the recipient.
I can see why these people say things like this, though. They have to. The fundies take the position that God is perfect and everlasting and eternal and constant and blameless and loving. Therefore he
be the source of anything bad. Hunger and starvation is bad, therefore it can't be god's fault. Since it isn't god's fault, it must be yours.
And my family has always been active Christians, some of them would even qualify as fundie. I have vivid memories of going to bed hungry many times when I was a kid. It wasn't god's fault that the plant closed down and it took my dad 2 years to find a new job, but it wasn't our fault either. It just happened, and we delt with it. We believed, we had faith, and we went to bed hungry, so your \"statement,\" JohnR7, is at best ignorant and at worst hateful and arrogant. Knowing what I know of you I suspect the latter.
And if my own experiences are not enough, I could send you pictures my cousin Sarah took when she worked for the Red Cross. One of them is Christian church in Ethiopia. It is filled with dead people. People who starved to death, in church, when the land went sour and the crops failed. They went to church to pray, and their faith was strong. So strong they stayed in that church until they died...of EMPTY STOMACHES.
There were 24 people in that church. 15 of them were children.
I used to think you were a fool, JohnR7. Now I know you are a degenerate, arrogant, egocentric, misantrope. My hat's off to you, sir. You have proved evolution by demonstrating that it works in reverse as well.

\"Man does not live by bread alone\" -- but the bread's still got to be there, too. Man does not live by fantasy alone, either -- in fact, he'll die a lot sooner.

That is the single most ignorant thing that JohnR7 has ever said. This goes beyond flaunting is scientific illiteracy and bizzarre ideas. This is just plain stupid, offencive and dangerous.
A normal person: \"Look at those poor starving people in Africa\"
JohnR7: \"Yeah, lets look at them for a while. Goes to show you what happens when you don't believe in God\"
This asshole reminds me of the nutcase who told me (during the Ethiopian Famine of the mid 80's) that we should not send aid to them because they weren't Christian. When I pointed out that the Ehiopians were christian since the time when our (northern european) ancestors were worshiping trees he refused to believe me.
Jerks like JohnR7 are too busy loudly broadcasting thier so called faith that they forget to follow the tenents of that faith.
A fundy's ignorance in science is usually eclipsed by their ignorance in their own fucking religion.
