Are there many Satanists in Georgia?

If you're really that concerned, get all your group members to erect Ten Commandments displays on their own property.

"The Devil went down to Georgia he was looking for a soul to steal..."
and a thanx to Charlie Daniels

Wait, wait wait... So their logic is "we can't have our Ten Commandments on public property, so this guy shouldn't be allowed to have his ten commandments on private property"??? Did nobody explain to them why this is stupid and wrong?

JESUS PLEASE CUM SOON!

"We can't have ours on public property, so to be fair you can't have yours ANYWHERE!"
And they wonder why we say they're intolerent... *sheesh*

I am going to guess, the Guidestones were erected to piss off a group of Georgia baptists. It's truly an incongruity in a red state for its pan-humanist and eclectic philosophy.

They're on private property. Like i have a missile silo on my backyard.

It's funny because these kinds of people go berserk if a city or state uses eminent domain to take a tiny portion of their land for a public project... well, apparently "property rights" aren't so sacrosanct when the property in question isn't theirs.
Also, how's the Starbucks thing going, Mark?

Actually reading on what's written on it, it looks like it was made by a bunch of nature lovers. Very stupid nature lovers, they misspelled a ton of things.
--------- (From wikipedia)-------
A message consisting of a set of ten guidelines or principles is engraved on the Georgia Guidestones in eight different languages, one language on each face of the four large upright stones. Moving clockwise around the structure from due north, these languages are: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Ancient Chinese, and Russian. The message in English reads:
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature
Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity.
Unite humanity with a living new language.
Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason.
Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a one world court
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature.
It sounds sort of fundi also.

Eh, whether or not you agree with what's on the commandments on private property, the difference is, they're not being pushed on every citizen.
7/30/2008 10:12:47 PM
Try hanging a giant version of the Ten Commandments on private property will ya.

Looking on the teeny-tiny bright side, at least he understands there is a difference between atheists and Satanists. I'm sure he doesn't understand what that difference IS, but...

Allegory for Jesus
These people have no idea how law works, do they? They just want to rant and rave about perceived injustices against them while never realizing that being treated equally within the confines of law is not discrimination or persecution.

Here's a simple rule: You can put stuff on your own property. You can't put it on someone else's property. Is that principle really that hard to understand?
7/31/2008 12:25:36 AM
... nobody seems to care. Well we do.
As they say in the Russian infantry, tough shitski.
7/31/2008 12:26:17 AM
Satanic? I read the article, and the only idiots who are saying it's 'Satanic' are you pouting fundies.
It's on private property, so shaddup!
7/31/2008 12:41:47 AM
I thought the Georgia Guidestones were part of the New World Order conspiracy.
7/31/2008 2:10:18 AM
@szena: It sounds like the paranoid (read: fundie) mind would take tham as a New World Order, whatever that is, conspiracy. The part about keeping population at 500,000,000 is a favorite with conspiracy kooks. Conspiracy nut extrordinaire Alex Jones is a regular on religious shortwave stations, and he always says the UN/New World Order wants to "exterminate 80% of mankind," through disease, warfare, etc. to cull the herd. It's all bullshit.

...yet the satanic Georgia Guidestones have stood for decades, and nobody seems to care.
It's on private property and you have no right to tell the owner to remove it from their property. Post the 10 commandments on the doors of your churches where they belong.
7/31/2008 2:53:19 AM
Care all you want. If it's on private property, it's out of your reach.
7/31/2008 2:55:57 AM
"Are there many Satanists in Georgia?"
9363941 at the last counts, though some of them pose as fundie chistians ramming bibles down your throat.
7/31/2008 4:29:35 AM
WTF are these Guidestones, and how are they "Satanic"?
