Quote# 48553

The China infant milk scandal, even though it has so far not damaged any American babies, has exposed a major defect in the concept of free trade. It's dangerous to buy products from a nation whose economy is not based on Judeo-Christian morality.

I wonder what kind of economy Jesus would invent?

"The American private enterprise system depends on honesty as normal and accepted behavior"

That's called caveat emptor. It's dangerous to buy stuff from a nation full of unregulated and fail like China.

Like this instant ramen. *holds up a packet of Maruchan Oriental ramen*

It's slowly killing me.

Candy being sold to kids contain alarming amounts of sugar and strange chemicals for taste and colour, even in our Judeo-Christian economy here in the West. Praise the Lord.

In light of the financial freefall we're having in America, I don't know whether to laugh so hard I cry or cry so hard I laugh.

You were doing so well, until the end.

Yeah, Phyllis. Like that mad cow disease coming out of officially-Anglican Britain? That's just a figment of our imagination.

"I wonder what kind of economy Jesus would invent?"

While I haven't got the Bible memorized, Jesus certainly seems like a communist to me, or at least someone friendly to what communism represents "on paper".

*grins as he pictures Phyllis Schlafly having an aneurysm upon being hit with the massive irony of this realization*

I totally agree.

Unfortunately, as there are exactly 0 economies based on Judeo-Christian morals, this would shut down all trade entirely.

9/28/2008 4:27:58 PM


So we shouldn't buy from America anymore? Or anywhere except the Vatican?

@ approximate
I have a 1973 Ford Pinto for sale . . . to you or any Fundamentalist Christian buyer.

Hahaha - is this a subtle suggestion to die in a fire?
I love it. A rapture vehicle.

I am sure that the population of Bhopal agree with you Phylis.

Doesn't a Christian economy require us to give up all our stuff and become ascetics? Isn't that what an economy isn't?

9/28/2008 4:49:10 PM

The Watcher beat me to it.

9/28/2008 4:53:16 PM

So now you guys are AGAINST unregulated trade?

9/28/2008 4:55:45 PM


You mean like oil?

9/28/2008 5:00:10 PM


Of course, Phyllis, you realize that this would limit us to trading with only 15 countries - Argentina, Bolivia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Liechtenstein, Malta, Monaco, Slovakia, the Vatican, Greece, Cyprus, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, England, and Israel - the ones with official Judeo-Christian state religions.

Lesson - think before you stick your foot so far up your mouth that you bite yourself in the ass.

The FEMA/Katrina disaster happened under a Christian prez in our "Christian country." Enron happened in our "Christian country." The Exxon Valdez oil spill happened in our "Christian country." Having Christians around doesn't seem to help much, Phyllis.

Allegory for Jesus

An economy based on Judeo-Christian morality? I thought you guys didn't like communism anymore...

Anyway..."infant milk"? Well...I suppose that is morally superior to "infant juice"...

9/28/2008 6:13:16 PM


Phyllis, remember how we talked about how you needed to stop your comments one sentence earlier?

Ok we didn't actually. But clearly we should.

The early Christians were communists.
Our economy isnt based on any Judeo Christian "values" (otherwise we couldn't have banks..since they would be Usurers)
And the reason China has all these issues and we do (any longer) is because of the work of all those "Liberal secularists" you hate so much. Certainly not because of people like you.
