Quote# 31624

Try getting democratic brothers and sisters the book "If Democrats Had Brains, They Would Be Republicans", like my hubby did. He got them for early Christmas presents, as we will not be with his family anymore (except for a wedding) until Christmas.

Boy, oh boy....talking about starting a conversation. It was more like a "war". Why do democrats get like that? I thought one brother in law was going to blow a cork.

Let's see.. what would happen if I got you a book that read: "If Republicans had brains, they'd be Democrats"? ... Insult a person, don't be surprised that they insult back.

The Arrogant Atheist

Not particularly Fundie. While this woman certainly is, this comment's more so just being a pigheaded conservative. She's just unwilling to see another view point.

I just had a brilliant idea for a book: "If Fundies Had Brains They'd be Atheists". I'm sure it'll be a best seller. You can expect your copy from your inlaws next Christmas.

Seriously, you give someone a book that is obviously insulting to their views and then you have the gall to ask why they're upset? What kind of moron are you?

11/26/2007 4:35:10 PM


Horsefeathers, I'd buy that book. In bulk.

11/26/2007 4:37:59 PM


Stupid like a fundie, but not necessarily a fundie.

Just don't act surprised if this year he gets multiple copies of "The God Delusion" in return.

Your husband is an ass, and you are truly un-christian and in need of repentance. Did Jesus not mention rendering "unto Caesar, the things that are Caesar's?"
Did Jesus not mention turning the other cheek?
Did Jesus not mention doing unto others that which you would have them do unto you?
Did Jesus not mention loving your enemies?
Have you even read the gospels?

I can't imagine why. It is a mystery!

11/26/2007 5:03:58 PM


Maybe because the title alone is insulting to a large number of voters in our nation, including your in-laws. Then again, maybe you want to alienate your family members.

11/26/2007 5:04:53 PM


Maybe they "got like that" because you insulted them?

I'm sure thats just their way of saying that they like it. they may even stop calling because they are spending all the extra free time they have reading it.
[/extreme sarcasm]

profoundly foolish, but not fundie I'm afraid.

They did not get angry because they are democrats, genius. They got angry because for a present you two idiots not only tried to force your beliefs on them, but you did so by proclaiming that they are stupid for not believing what you believe. To top it off they probably went out of their way to get a nice present for you two that would be styled to your personal tastes and you nitwits couldn't be bothered to do the same.

11/26/2007 5:31:09 PM


other than this coming from RR, it's not fundie at all.

11/26/2007 5:44:53 PM


Yeah, why do democrats get like that? It's not like you deliberately provoked them by indirectly calling them idiots by giving them an insulting book.

Oh, wait...

This thread isn't about how to start a conversation. It's about how to be a total asshole during a pleasant family dinner.

11/26/2007 5:56:28 PM


Id send it back.

11/26/2007 5:57:07 PM


How about a book called "Ann Coulter should shut the fuck up like the bible says she should." Or maybe "Damn, that bitch Ann Coulter looks like a crossdresser."

11/26/2007 6:01:27 PM


Well what would happen if we gave you an essay entitled "Conservatives Hate America"?

11/26/2007 6:03:54 PM


If one of your family members sent you the same book with the words 'Democrats' and 'Republicans' changed around, I'd bet good money you'd be offended too.

11/26/2007 6:12:36 PM


I personally think we ought to get out a book just for the Rapture Ready Crowd: "If conservative fundies read the Bible they'd be Liberals like Jesus Wants them to be"! Nah, they're not bright enough to think for themselves and read something besides the fundie cherry-picked parts anyway!

Christmas Love

I'd simply take a photo of the family and I standing around the book all ablaze. Instant christmas card for next year!

Caustic Gnostic

Meh, I would just ask how much they paid for that kindling. And tell them that toilet tissue would make a better "gift".

And in return, for them a Gospel of Thomas.

Christmas Love wins an interweb!

They simply don't have a sense of humor as well developed as yours.

11/26/2007 7:46:08 PM


I'd make it a point not to invite your husband and you to anymore family functions until you smartened the fuck up.
Happy Holidays, retards.

11/26/2007 7:49:10 PM


I would have simply looked at the book, said you were and idiot and told you to get out. If you asked, I would tell you why I felt this was necesary, but you probably wouldn't.
