Quote# 53036

[The death penalty is good for the environment]

"So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it. Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel." ( vs. 33-34)

Did you see that? God said that the land is POLLUTED and DEFILED when killers go free. In God's word, environmental pollution is associated with SIN, not carbon monoxide and lead poisoning. The best way to clean up America is JUSTICE. Justice will teach people to respect the law once again and to fear God. If that happens, maybe more people will repent of their sins and receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour. Nothing could help our environment more.

I thought killing was okay as long as god okayed it?

Nothing could help our environment more.

Except for, recycling and driving better cars.

fuck recycling! give me a SUV so i could run over some librulz!

Funny, I read it as a passage agianst ruining the land, as in taking care of the thing, instead of trashing the place.

11/30/2008 7:11:34 AM


You know... this whole fear of god thing doesn't seem compatible with the idea of a loving deity.

So, you want to commit murder and you're willing to bend over backwards twisting the words of your holy book to make your wish come true?! Wow. Just... wow.

El Zorro

That's a pretty stupid idea.

Average Guy

It's a METAPHOR, you dick.

11/30/2008 3:02:58 PM


...and of course, the land is not POLLUTED nor DEFILED when we go drilling for oil or let those factories spew waste into the environment.

Not at all.

Because the Bible says pollution is all about sin.

Hey, James Lost Melon, did you eat paint chips as a kid or something? Just wondering...

11/30/2008 4:01:19 PM


"So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are." Sounds pretty cut and dry to me, moe-ron.

So why does god let Murderers, rapists, thieves and other such criminals if they believe in a loving magic sky pixie as opposed to one that's a total goddamn asshole in the sky that shits on everyone? If he/she/it exists in the first place.

Do they have to filter everything they believe through the Bible? Can't they just say "this is what I believe"? Are they afraid of being considered rebellious by their fundie peers if they have free thoughts?

His idiocy is enhanced by the fact that if he'd read the Bible, he'd know that it was in favor of death sentence in the first place, removing the need to shoehorn a completely irrelevant passage! Geezus.

Well, much as his 'pollution is caused by sin-powered magic!' thing is hilarious. It might not be such a bad idea to cull humanity a bit.

In parks if a certain lifeform has no natural predators and breeds in abundance threathening to destroy all the food in a park, bring diseases etc. Humans shoot a few. But the most destructive species of all, humanity itself still breeds like rabbits and increasingly destroys and depletes the planet.

I say cull humanity. But of course it'd be sad if innocent people where culled. So instead expand the death-penalty to any crime that victimizes someone else, and remove all appeals. Also, tie knots in the uterusses and spermducts of anyone who doesn't have an IQ of at least a 110 or so. (Ought to include the brunt of fundiedom.)

It'd do the world alot of good, and since humanity lives on this world, its good for humanity too. And since the executed people will be criminals who victimize people and the ones no longer allowed to breed would have only passed on the most deficient genetic material, no harm would be done... Quite the contrary! If we'd be lucky some of the worst traits would be weeded out of humanity!

11/30/2008 4:55:28 PM

Well, if he can explain how defiling the land leads to greenhouse gases in the air - assuming we're taking this extremely literally - ok then.

11/30/2008 7:41:38 PM

But now you are making God out to be a liar. Remember he protected the Bible's first murderer Cain and would allow no man to harm him!

11/30/2008 8:19:46 PM


@Mick: That would remove the aggressive traits from humanity; unfortunately those same traits that cause violence also cause competition, and thus much of human advancement. Also, we'd need them if civilization ever collapsed. Eugenics is a hideously tricky thing - so many things have to be taken into account.

11/30/2008 8:28:55 PM


Can we start with you...?

11/30/2008 9:09:50 PM


Come inside and be afraid,
Of this impressive mess I’ve made
If you take a look now you will find,
Perfect Insanity!

11/30/2008 9:11:12 PM


You will twist anything written in that old book to fit your delusions, won't you?

11/30/2008 9:38:12 PM


@Fera: Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-OW!

What a typically violent fundie.

"It's not the massive industrial pollution that's wrecking our environment - no, it's that we're not executing enough poor people! Praise Jeebus!"

11/30/2008 9:40:50 PM

The Truth

Well, killing humans does reduce human consumption of resources. But I don't think that is God's will.

11/30/2008 10:09:17 PM


My first thought was poe, but a quick google on this guy and he turns up on the tubes like the rash on the arse of a fat cyclist in Florida in summer. Check out www.jesus-is-lord.com for a whole heap of weird.
