On the plus side it sounds nice, but in all honesty they are not really undergoing "famine".

They are undergoing a fast. A famine is where they are eating poor food for months at a time and drinking unclean water. Famine kills people with ease.

While laudable, to compare their famine to real famine is kind of not getting the point of real suffering as opposed to the masochism they are trying to portray.

Why is this in FSTDT? This isn't bigoted, racist, misogynist, homophobic, ignorant, irrational or any of the other things which fundie quotes usually are. This is NICE. This is actually a rare example of fundies doing a NICE, COMPASSIONATE thing which Christians are supposed to do.

This doesn't seem fundie, so why is it on here?

Make it three or four months; And no water.

Meh'd, doesn't belong here at all.

And lemme guess, you're going to hold the food hostage while you force them to sit through several hours of your religious indoctrination before they get to eat, right?

Not fundie and I hope that they made a lot of money.

I hope some of that money made it to the supposed cause, religious charities in particular have a bad track record for keeping over 90% for the church or using it to feed their insatiable appetite for more Bibles.

How is this fundie? They're raising money for an orphange.
@Quantum Mechanic
I seriously hope you're a troll. You're a perfect example of an atheist fundie. You are possibly the nasiest atheist I've ever encountered(aside from Randroids). Please grow up.

How does a famine raise money? Or are you giving away the money that you should have bought food with? But, that can't be much after just 30 hours without food...

I think it's very good to help your fellow human beings, especially if you see them as equals who were just dealt a poorer fate at birth.

"My church is doing a 30 hour famine to raise money for a orphange in africa what do you thinnk about that"

Oh, I dunno...:

...just ask someone in Africa who hasn't eaten for far longer than little over a day.

Matthew 19:21. What do you think about that?


You clearly are a troll. This quote is ultra-fundie. Because zackman - and ALL his hypocritical fundie Christain ilk - haven't obeyed Matthew 19:21*, if they're as 'Christian' as they claim to be.

Me, I donate £20 a month via Direct Debit to Oxfam; that monthly amount alone - not taking into account how many more like me do the same in the UK - buys a lot of seed. Which can ensure people in Africa can grow their own food in perpetuity; selling their surplus in markets, so they can pay for their children to be educated, so as to become doctors, teachers etc, so their lives - and thus their communities - can be improved.

£20 a month. £240 a year. The former buys three meals in a day. But can do infinitely more to a family, or an orphan.

*- In b4 'Interpretation' & all that literal Bible-avoidance/cherry-picking BS.



Quantum Mechanic, says 'Stop using computers', and has said the same many times in different threads. Your point?

5/1/2014 7:25:06 AM


Just look at Quantum Mechanic's posts. All the exact same thing copied and pasted over again. Also he seems to support eugenics("People this stupid should be hunted down and killed").
Also this is not fundie at all. How is raising money for an orphanage fundie? Isn't helping the poor a Christian thing to do?

5/1/2014 7:32:27 AM

What do I think about that?

Oh, look, some overfed fundie manged to live without their super-extra-value humongously oversized quadruple bacon cheeseburgers, monster French fries, gallon-sized milkshakes, and Old Country buffets for 30 hours...all while blowing their own horn saying, "Look at ME! I "famined" for 30 HOURS!"

Want to impress me? Try 30 days...and that still won't be anything like what those starving in Africa are used to. And hopefully the money you gather actually makes it to the orphanage...instead of into some corrupt preacher's bank account.

30 days, don't worry about food, won't your god provide for you? Aren't you one of the "chosen"? Doesn't he care more about you than the birds in the sky?

set up booth selling corn dogs and bbq on a bun and you will collect more monies.

its a nice idea otherwise.
