Quote# 62760

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ the King. I have been given some material by a man who wants to convince me that the United States government is founded upon the Christian Religion.

One of the papers he gave me is titled: "America founded by Christians?? You bet it was!!"

Let me clarify this title. America is not the United States. America is a creation of YHWH, God. The United States as we know it today is a creation of a few clever men who wrote the Constitution of the United States. There is a difference between America, God's creation; and the United States, man's creation. You cannot link America with the United States. America belongs to God; the United States belongs to a few clever men.

Hey Caleb. I thought America was named after Amerigo Vespucci. Wasn't he a Catholic? Are Catholics Christians?

Anyway, it sometimes seems that you don't dwell in either America or the United States, not even on planet Earth. No, you inhabit a mystic land, full of superstition and twisted logic, that doesn't obey the natural laws of the rest of the universe. An unproductive and dangerous territory that feeds on its inhabitants like a vampire on a blood-rich virgin. A foetid and sordid world full of horror and unimaginable terrors where irrationality rules and logic holds court in a torture chamber.

As an alien on our lovely world, Earth, what do you see when you look out your window. People just going about their daily business and doing the best they can? No. You see squalid sinners uninfected by the Jesus-fundie disease. And you are filled with envy and self-loathing to see such freedom of thought and expression thriving quite robustly round about your ignominious self.

Leave this world immediately you insane and deluded alien trash.

And which are you living in?

Thought so.

In the time of the biblee, America wasn't even known by the Isrealites.

@ #962932: Calm down. As a life long Canadian, I, nor anybody else I know, has ever heard people say that. The ones that do are probably just complainers who would go on about anything. Don't say "Canadians" as if it applies to the whole country, because it most certainly does not.

"You cannot link America with the United States."


"Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ the King."

I'm sorry that's Elvis, get out, blasphemer.

"America belongs to God"

Then we'll need another war of independence immediately! He's worse than belonging to the British Empire!

Also just on the whole USA getting to call themselves "americans", I'm ok with it but I think they should have picked a better name for their country than just naming it after the continent they're on. I mean only Australia gets that privilege because we actually fully occupy our continent. I'm not sure what you could call the USA besides America, but from what I read those founder fellows were pretty sharp, I'm sure they could have come up with a more clever and meaningful name than the United States of "the bloody continent we're standing on!".

Unfortunately, I don't think directing them to Romans 13:1-6 is going to help much...


I'm sure some of you can find a way to lance it. I prefer to specialize in dragging out Hyles's errors.

Sweet. Incoherent ramblings for gawd.

Wow, a new brand of crazy!

America is a continent which is in no way mentioned in the Bible. Please, try again.

5/30/2009 2:56:04 AM


Why do you hate the United States?

5/30/2009 7:54:35 AM


And the devil created the rest of the world

5/30/2009 12:52:58 PM


So who does turtle island belong to then?

5/30/2009 2:04:16 PM



And what makes you think i am canadian?

See? you still have a limited view of the world.

Now, I know it is almost imposible to expect a culture that simply has no otherway to refer to themselves to come up with a term.
But that is just an identity problem of your people.

Eh. He's drawing some strange distinctions, but I'm not seeing the level of nuttiness that really signals fundieness.

5/30/2009 4:20:50 PM


Well gee whillickers, I live in the United States of America.

Unless we're talking about the continent that we call America (Nort/South), then there's some distinction. God must have made America with all those nasty heathen Indians for His precious white men to give smallpox-ridden blankets to. People like you make me sick.

I actually went to the site, and the most disturbing thing I saw on there was his detailed description of what happens when you go to jail for not having state identification.

Well I'm glad I live in the United States and not America.

And we all know that God is not only American, but also a Christian Republican. Ask any American Christian Republican.

Here in the USA, we outlawed slavery long ago. In the America of your fantasies, slavery is legal (as long as you do it in the "right" way). I will take the USA over your imagined America without a second thought. Your imagined America is ruled by an amoral monster.
