I had a flashback of Godfather concerning a certain musician and band
"They gave him an offer he can't refuse"

Everyone can say what he wants to say. He just has to accept the concequences. Who said that again?

Well, in such a circumstance I'd probably choose church, too, it being the lesser of the two evils.

Nobody is telling fundies to give up their beliefs in dog, Jeebus, and the Holey Goat. You can give up your church, convert to atheism (since we KNOW it is a religion of Satan, with Darwin as our Grand Omnipotent Dragon), or face the machine gun firing squad.
(That would make a kick-ass grunge band name "Machine Gun Firing Squad")

Nah- more like a German death metal band...

Return of Rob
Well, fuck my ass and call me a bitch, then, cause I'm headin' for the clink.

I've heard this sort of thing before. Usually in conversations about kgb, gestapo or stasi.
3/22/2008 9:04:19 AM
Well, aren't you a precious asshole.
Incidentally, writing something into law is a form of ordering.

Christian theocracy in action.

Hell, if we're going to go this route, we should force fundamentalists to get a BS in biology or go to jail.
At least it'll solve some problems.

What a choice!!, It's like saying "nobody is forcing you to give away your wallet to a guy who is smugging you. Either you give it or he will cut your throat"
3/22/2008 11:08:17 AM
Sort of like the way the Inquisitors gave Jews the choice between converting and being tortured. Those weren't forced conversions at all!
3/22/2008 11:10:03 AM
That's a false dilemma dear Mr. Fundie
3/22/2008 12:13:46 PM
What's going on, here?
3/22/2008 12:14:46 PM
#469530 beat me to it. There's a reason why we don't acknowledge "Your money or your life" as a valid form of contract negotiation.
3/22/2008 12:24:44 PM
Well I guess if someone put a gun to your head and said "Worship Allah or die" you'd consider that a free choice, eh?
3/22/2008 12:27:36 PM
Context? This sounds like a potentially lulzy tale to me.
3/22/2008 1:03:33 PM
Well then, I'm giving you a choice. Stay out of church or go to jail. It's not like I'm giving you an order.
3/22/2008 1:09:04 PM
"It wasn't a robbery. He chose to give me his wallet over being shot."

Church or jail? That judge needs to be re-educated on the guidelines of her position.
The man will commit another crime within a year, just watch. And the only one who will be surprised is the judge with her head up Jesus's ass.
Emberrased Theist, here is the story they are discussing:

I realize that most fundies are Baptists, but I hope this guy isn't. Why, BECAUSE ONE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL TENANTS OF BAPTIST THEOLOGY INVOLVES FREEDOM TO CHOOSE OR REJECT JESUS AS THE MESSIAH! Thank you.

Grand Archblasphemer of York
Wow...sounds a lot like the "choices" that God supposedly gives to us.
3/22/2008 1:43:38 PM
And that is a 1st ammendment violation of his right to choose his religion or lack thereof
On another note, do you really want to make people choose between church and jail? Sensible people would crowd the jails, it would be mass chaos, children would weep, moters would wail, and fathers would gnash teeth... or something like that madness.
