Quote# 38399

We're in a spiritual war. This war is not against flesh and blood, but against the spiritual powers of Satan and his demons (Eph. 6:12). For most Christians it's a little hard to get worked up about this war, since we don't have the threat of real bullets zinging past our heads every day. But wait, there are real bullets being aimed at us! Did you ever stop to think that the immorality and false ideas of much of today's entertainment media are the ammunition in this war?

In other words, there is no war and the ammunition is in your imagination.

What else is new?

Did you ever stop to think that:
1. God created Satan and his demons (being the creator of all things).
2. God can prevent any and all of this in an instant (being all-powerful and all-knowing).

Grand Theft Auto IV is out today. And its still less disgusting than the bible.

Did you ever stop to think that the immorality and false ideas of much of today's entertainment media are the ammunition in this war?

Still not quite as effective as a 7.62 round to the chest though is it?

Looking at the fact that Pat Robertson has his own program and that you're using internet, I think you're saying bullshit.

Did I think that freedom of speech and thought is like a bullet or a bomb, literally or metaphorically? Um, no, as matter of fact. I did not.

"For most Christians it's a little hard to get worked up about this war"
Maybe there's hope after all.

Fundamentalist ministers are some of the worst offenders of hyperbolic metaphor.

A lot of the entertainment media actually promote strong morality (e.g., honesty, forgiveness, the Golden Rule), and some of it -- though admittedly not nearly enough -- tries to promote factual reality (e.g., Mythbusters, Penn & Teller, old documentary series such as Connections and Cosmos).

Compare that with the immorality (e.g., oppression of gays, women, and atheists) and false ideas (e.g., creationism, historical revisionism, the Rapture) that YOU people use for ammunition. In other words, you are only making a case against YOURSELF.

I see more harm come from religion than from the media. The Bible is chock full of incest, rape, pillaging, a god who seems to hate others, blessing those who sack cities and villages, stoning people to death.
