A hideous indoctrination tool, I must say. Reminds me of the Nazi methods to brainwash kids. Utterly disturbing...

\"Listen and DON´T\" -nomination on this one!

The title itself is very christian. Listen and do... Not think about it and come to your own conclusion.

I espcially like the one that has the children answering that they should give money to missionaries, or the one that has the family sad because Jesus hasn't come yet... But he will soon (50 years on, still waiting)

I've seen these kinds of books. Evangelical grandparents were involved. I thought they were goofy even then.

Somewhere in the back of this picture collection, there's this quote:
\"Jesus gives us all our money.\"

I never had any idea Jesus worked at my company's payroll department!

Take a look at my favorite. It shows a man super-kneeling at a Buddha statue and reads:
Here is a man in India.
He is praying to his god.
His god cannot help him.
This man must know about Jesus.
Can you think of some ways to help him?
They're certain this Indian guy is wrong, yet they don't even know that Buddha isn't considered a god.

Why not make a slight change:

(insert a praying man in front of a cross here)

Here is a man in USA.
He is praying to his God.
His god cannot help him.
This man must know about The Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Can you think of some ways to help him?

When I was a kid, I preferred something with a litte more depth and a decent plot.

Why is it that the rapture fundies always want to see the holes in Jesus's hands? Couldn't god have fixed them by now.

Fundies like carnage. To both questions.

Well, if it was publish in 1954 is not a fundie. It´s just a sad product of the time.

Was the FSM known to mere mortals in 1954?

And the pasta, and the sauz, and the pinot grigio, Ramen.

This has to be the worst. How do people in Africa eat, where do they live and what clothes do they wear before and after they know Jesus. Sickening they actually thought that would work.

Ugh. You know, growing up Catholic, it was all warm and fuzzy Bible stories. This kind of hard-core indoctrination is something they do in seminaries and monasteries.

I have the sudden urge to stab something. Or maybe use this coloring book for target practice.

Anyone willing to give me a pistol and, say, 200 rounds?

I remember *exactly* these books from when I was a little kid.

I also remember a sunday school teacher telling us - literally: "If you don't go to Africa and tell all the little nigger children about Jesus then they will all go to hell. You don't want the little niggers to go to hell, do you?"

Sunday School for me equaled racism and guilt trips.

What a load of crap to teach little kids!

6/23/2007 10:34:02 AM


The majority of kids can smell the bullshit, even at a young age.

Those that do not...oh well, there's a sucker born every minute.

jesus apparently doesnt love australia as it does not appear on the map.

7/3/2007 4:20:49 AM


Adam: my thoughts exactly! Damn this inferiority complex all us australians have!

@agentCDE: Shlock mercenary?

What is this? Some kind of nazi brainwashing tool?

This one just got featured on Bay of Fundie.

4/26/2009 10:32:22 PM


Wow. Talk about indoctrination. Also, what kind of god sends to hell people that never heard of either him or said hell?

4/26/2009 10:57:00 PM

And this is probably why so many Christians pine for the 50s
