So apparently, hating other religions is not enough for you, and you've decided to start hating divisions of your own religion. Good to know.

@Dr. Novakaine: Keep in mind that a lot of these nutjobs hold that Catholics, at least, aren't Christians.
5/26/2009 8:17:07 PM
They must not have heard that David J. Stewart--and, by corollary, Witch-King Jack Hyles of Angmar--hold that same "Baptists precede all other Christian-labeleds" claim. Hopefully, that would make them relinquish that in a hurry.

Which by an amazing coincidence, just happens to be the independent Baptist church you belong to...
5/26/2009 8:41:29 PM
Excuse me, are you the Independent Baptists of America?
We're the American Independent Baptists.

...except when there's a census. Then they're one big happy christian family.

Why would your Jesus name his church after his cousin, John? Wouldn't make sense unless he wanted to avoid pissing off the local religious authorities or for tax evasion purposes.
Of course, the simpler question is: where does this happen in your fantasy book? On the banks of the Jordan River with his cousin?

To join my church(the North American Membership of Baptists from Los Angeles)you must hold one true belief from the bible. That is, cubits equal 16.85 inches and not 17.5. Any person who says otherwise is a DIRTY ROTTEN HEATHEN WHO'S GOING TO HELL!!!

Who left me off the list?
I keep missing these memos.

The baptist churches are protestant... And are derived from Calvinist heresy.
The American baptists are even further removed from the early church
5/26/2009 10:21:28 PM
Because Baptism doesn't fall under protestantism.

Assuming he even existed...
5/26/2009 10:39:19 PM
Ok, this has been a long time coming... but fuck off you insane fucking elitist pricks
5/26/2009 11:01:55 PM
ohh boy, how many "One True Church" claims does that make now? There sure seem to be a lot, yet you guys keep claiming that there can only be one.
Maybe you should fight it out with swords or something while shouting "There can be only one!"
(Hmm, now why does that sound familiar?)
5/26/2009 11:11:52 PM
The catholics haters have nothing on the nutjobs who sanctify the King James Version Bible and say the readers of all other bibles are going to hell for heresy.
Look at the AV1611 forum sometime if you want to see some real wackos.

Sorry, but Jesus didn't start any church. It was his followers (mostly Paul) that started it as a fringe cult.
5/26/2009 11:20:43 PM
I love the whole "we predate you" argument here. It's so.... pointless.

We should preserve this quote as the best example of a "no true scotsman" fallacy.
5/27/2009 12:26:46 AM
That would have been John the Baptist,you nit.
5/27/2009 12:49:06 AM
These people fully believe that their sect stayed active through the centuries until the Reformation by reading their Bibles and staying true to the message, despite the pressure from the Catholic church.
They've never been able to explain how that worked given that a) Bibles were hand-copied and hard to come by, and b) pretty much everyone who wasn't educated by the Catholic church was illiterate.

The time has come as a Catholic to re-teach and re-emphasize that Jesus started a church in his earthly ministry, and that church is not an independent Baptist or Protestant church but a Catholic Church.

@Skyknight: the Lord of the Nazgul had to much self respect to be a Fundie!

My sister's in-laws are Baptist. I never thought I would actually meet someone who would say that Santa is Satan in disguise.
