Quote# 35511

"Youth casting spells asking Earth spirits for strength and guidance? That's ridiculous. The clear thing to do is say prayers asking the Holy Spirit to give them strength and guidance... because Christianity is superior to all other faiths. I mean, I support freedom of religion, but allowing children to freely choose their beliefs? Come on, that's not what the Founding Fathers meant when they wrote that into the Constitution! What is this, 21st century America? Children ought to submit to the Christian traditions of their parents and completely close their minds to all other ungodly thoughts. Only then can true progress be made."

Christianity obviously ain't so great if it continuously has to be reinforced is it?

"I support freedom of religion, but allowing children to freely choose their beliefs? Come on, that's not what the Founding Fathers meant when they wrote that into the Constitution!"

That's enough stupid to fill an olympic sized swimming pool.

I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've said this, but I'm going to call Poe. If only because I can't read it without it sounding sarcastic in my head.

I agree with MysticalChicken. The line "What is this, 21st century America?" does it for me.

@ Mystical Chicken,

I support this assesment.

"because Christianity is superior to all other faiths."

My god can beat up your god.

Yeah, I'm about 99% sure we have a Poe here.

The first three sentences makes me sure. Not many people can say such idiotic things on accident.

Please, please let this be a Poe. This looks like a Poe. This reads like a Poe. It's got to be a Poe. No-one can truly be this stupid.

"What is this, 21st century America?"

This gives it away as a Poe.

2/26/2008 1:21:23 PM


I actually think that there are people this dumb, but it sounds a tad too intelligent and coherent for it not to be sarcasm.

2/26/2008 1:23:28 PM

Ok, from "I'm contradicting myself all the time" to "my God has a bigger dick than yours", you are a living example of why 88% of Evangelical Christians leave their parents' religion. And incidentally, the real progress came when children didn't give a danm for old-fashion beliefs.

2/26/2008 1:35:29 PM


Definitely a Poe.
The "What is this, 21st century America?" seems to be a clue.

I read the babble when I was a kid.

It's crap.

2/26/2008 1:39:50 PM


doesn't the fact that this is outed 3 comments in sort of invalidate poe's law?

2/26/2008 1:39:53 PM


Yes, it is what the Founding Fathers intended. Freedom of religion. Not just yours. And that people could choose their religious path. Just because you were forced, probably due to brainwashing and beatings, to follow what your folks force fed you, doesn't mean everyone had such narrow minded parental units.

My mother was about as religious as a shoehorn. So according to you, I should be agnostic/atheist rather than my God/Goddess worshipper that I am.

2/26/2008 1:54:01 PM


Hear that kids? An open mind is a SIN!

Good thing it's a Poe or I'd be losing so many FIH points that I'd have a mental breakdown, hehe. *twitch*

Do I detect sarcasm here?

Freedom of religion is good, on the condition that you choose christianity.

I don't know...but something seems amiss in that idea
