Strangle the bible-pimps with their own guts, and the sheeple will wander away, perhaps to grow.
Banning religion = banning thought?
Nope. Au contraire.

I'm not a spambot
I do sympathize somewhat with the feeling, but we really should be careful not to sound as violent and out of control as those we make fun of.

And future history will record this debacle as the Great communual FSTDT dummy - spit of '09. Seriously, this is getting old.

Please tell me some kind of reverse poe has found it's way on to the site. Otherwise this is repulsive.
5/12/2009 9:18:51 PM
this one doesnt even make sense. bible pimps? How much for some young nuns whacking me with rulers?
5/12/2009 9:18:54 PM
Someone's taking a shining to outing the fundies of FSTDT.
I don't care what anyone says, rage towards fundies is no reason to behave like fundies ourselves. To say otherwise is to say that rage towards Nazis would be an appropriate excuse for the Jews to orchestrate their own Holocaust.
Godwin'd? Why yes, I think so.
5/12/2009 9:21:43 PM
I sense a troll.
Otherwise, I'm pretty sure this is about as fundie as one can get.

Hey, you over there, holding the mirror...
Thanks, people needed to see how stupid they can be when they feel like they are better than others.
5/12/2009 9:28:41 PM
I think this a good thing. We turned into the one thing we wanted to stop.
5/12/2009 9:30:13 PM
How would that be any different from:
Strangle the Ahteist-pimps with their own guts, and the sheeple will wander away, perhaps to grow.
Banning ahteism= banning thought?
Nope. Au contraire.
You're no different from the "sheeple" you make fun of.
5/12/2009 9:35:37 PM
There's nothing Fundy about this, guys.
5/12/2009 9:47:31 PM
I have the same violent rage moments when reading some of these, but it's typically a good idea to water it down to passive irritation, as hard as that may be.
But what the fuck is a 'Bible-Pimp', exactly? Am I going to see the King James version turning tricks down on Rochester and Beachwood?
5/12/2009 9:48:15 PM
I have to disagree WMD. This is a quote that attempts to lump all people who believe in the bible into one group. This is a what fundies do to viewpoints that oppose theirs.
5/12/2009 9:53:32 PM
Dude, we really don't like fundies.
Not even atheist fundies.
5/12/2009 9:59:24 PM
You should know that first admendment protects that religion, too.
5/12/2009 10:07:57 PM
I, too, am smelling a troll in disguise. This doesn't sound like Grigadil.
5/12/2009 10:10:41 PM
Troll? Hope so. If not, then I've never actually encountered a statement like that from an atheist....
5/12/2009 10:34:27 PM
Oh come on, people. I know the whole point is something about us not turning into that which we hate, but this is just a candid and ironic description of religion. Pretty much all religions require the suspension of disbelief, as do they encourage that any glaring contradictions to what they teach, exposed by rational thought, be swept under the rug. I'm not referring just to the mainstream religions, but ALL of them. Equal opportunity distaste toward stupidity is just that, not "fundie atheism".

Oh come on, people. I know the whole point is something about us not turning into that which we hate, but this is just a candid and ironic description of atheism. Pretty much all nonreligions require the suspension of belief, as do they encourage that any glaring contradictions to what they teach, exposed by rational thought, be swept under the rug. I'm not referring just to the atheists, but agnosticism as well. Equal opportunity distaste toward stupidity is just that, not "fundie".
When I can do this, it means that you're being fundie.

Quit staring at me abyss!

Finding out that you are closer to that which you mock than you thought is indeed uncomfortable. However, making shitty excuses to cover this fact does nothing to make the situation better. I for one am glad that even us FSTDTers are not above being called on our fundieness if and when it manifests itself.

[sits back with popcorn, checks that previous comments did not go beyond condemning the teaching of creationism in public schools and enjoys the show]

Unfortunately, this is as ignorant and silly as any post by a Christian fundie.
5/13/2009 12:12:04 AM
I seem to have lol'd myself.
5/13/2009 3:06:44 AM
Seems rather otptimistic that the "sheeple will wander away" rather than just follow the next thing to come into the power vaccum.
5/13/2009 3:45:27 AM
So you wan to ban all beliefs (religion) except the ones you agree with. Now where have I heard that before?
