Quote# 35609

[[Salem Mass. produced more than it's share of this idiocy durring the 1700s. Unfortunatley, not one of the poor people accused of being in cahoots with the devil lived to testify about it. How convenient for the accuser(s). If you think your faith in the Almighty is supposed to be used in this manner, I'm afraid you have missed the point of faith entirely.]]-Annonymous

Faith means to believe, because you feel it in your heart. It doesn't mean to think. The devil puts all sorts of confusing 'evidence' to deceive us.

Faith is about believing unconditionally that God is there and he is just. A just God wouldn't let innocent people get found guilty when put throught an ordeal.

As for the witches. Well, those servants of Satan got what they deserved. I can't believe everyone believes they were innocent. There were so many witnesses. That many people don't lie. Now a few people came forward and said they lied. OK. A few people wanted to be part of the victim crowd. They were probably witches too and didn't want anyone to point the finger at them. Granted, maybe one or two were innocent. So they made a mistake. Instead of putting their full faith in God and having a trial by ordeal like they were supposed to they had a trial by humans. That's not going to yield fair and impartial results to trust in man to determine guilty or innocence. Only God knows who's guilty or innocent.

In Salem they stood up to the vile practice of witchcraft only to be fooled by the Devil that witchcraft wasn't real.

There are still witches today, not the 'Wiccans' that's a silly fad heathen religion. Real witches are secretive. They usually pretend to be good, pious Christians so no one would suspect.

Okay, if he's not a poe, he's just launched himself into the winner's circle of fundyism currently occupied by the likes of Carico, dad, Supersport, Trinidad&Tobago, and other such legends.

"They usually pretend to be good, pious Christians so no one would suspect."

So, you'll be the first one to prove that you're not a witch?

That many people don't lie.

... Yes they do. All the time.

We've had rape apologists and now murder apologists, is there anything fundies can't rationalize away as "the will of god"? And they accuse us of having no morals, all the while breaking most of their own commandments saying that it was gods will...

Fucking Hypocrites!

How does someone tell the difference between what God does and what Satan does?

A guy gets his legs blown off in Iraq - God did it: He stepped in and save the guy from being killed; no, Satan did it: he had the guy's legs blown off.

A woman is drowned - God did it: she was a witch; no, Satan did it: she was innocent and he fooled people into killing her.

They stopped executing witches - God did it: He showed them they were wrong and were killing innocent people; no, Satan did it: he convinced people to stop burning evil witches.

Someone can always make up any shit they want to justify either view.

Some names you may want to look into before saying god wouldn't let innocent people be found guilty when put through an ordeal.

Hmmm. Joan of Arc ring a bell? Maybe that was too long ago to be considered.

How about Ron Williamson and Dennis Fritz, Cameron Todd Willingham , Ruben Cantu? Two of these men were even executed for crimes they did not commit.

How did your god allow that to happen?

Later on that page :
"I met the Virgin Mary in a dream once. She told me that it is God's will to bring back trial by ordeal. She told me to surf online and find a place to send out the message."

Just an elaborate poe, I would say.

And tmr, Joan of Arc had a big barbeque and burned someone's steak, the rest was a bunch of chinese whispers. (At least, that's what AVVET told me.)

Perhaps we should set Christians like this on fire, and if their God is as they say he is, he'll use his magic powers to save them. They shouldn't object to such a "trail by ordeal" if they truly believe and have faith, right?

So what if, and I'm just saying what if, Kent Hovind is really a witch?

Poe or not, witch hunts and killings are apparently still a reality today. We just don't hear about them.

Sounds like ServerO'Shit somehow got some of the same ergot spores that 17th century Salem got.

Should we wait for him to come down or should we point him to the nearest skyscraper with the idea that he can fly?

Statement of faith: good or evil, you're fucked.

Real witches are secretive. They usually pretend to be good, pious Christians so no one would suspect.

Like yourself. Asshole hypocrite.

I hate to break it to you, but EVERY ONE of those accused of witchcraft was INNOCENT.


Why? Because, in the REAL world, spells don't work.

Oh, and just to give you a bit of a point to ponder, in the original writings of the Old Testament, the word is "poisoner" NOT "Witch". "Thou shall not suffer a poisoner to live".

Faith means to believe, because you feel it in your heart. It doesn't mean to think.

Well, I have faith that you are hiding bioweaponry in your house. I don't need evidence, I don't need proof, I just believe. And fuck trials, I'll just send an army your way, kill your sons, rape your daughters, declare victory and stay there under the pretense of 'rebuilding' the family.

P.S. I hereby decree Gan's rule as the rule that all references of Christian fundementalism eventually lead to Bush.

I can name a few that would top my list:

Hovind,
Haggard,
Robertson,
Swaggart,
Bakker,
Bush,
Huckabee
etc., etc., etc...

You have no morals. Many innocent died simply due to hysteria and accusations. In fact all were innocent. Seems the "witches" are far less evil than the Christians
