This is pretty true, with the exception of the last line. Also not very fundy...

There's another way of looking at it.
They didn't like George W. Bush and his conservative views.
So they gave the Nobel Prize to the man he beat in 2000.
They still don't like George W. Bush and conservatives.
So they give it to George W. Bush's replacement after less than 8 months in office.
Norwegian liberals are no friends of warmongers.
Wow, just took one word change to fix that.
10/27/2009 3:36:34 PM
Oh, so that's how "Christian" is defined, is it? In that case, I have yet another reason to be glad to be an ex-Christian.
10/27/2009 3:50:28 PM
Mostly agreed, until the last line.
10/27/2009 3:57:47 PM
To be fair, Obama won the prize for not being Bush, who in any just world would be on war criminal charges alongside Cheyney, Rumsfeld and Blair.
Areeed, Norwegians are no fans of Christians either, or of any other religious cult's nonsense. That's one of the reasons why their standard of living is so much higher than the USA's.
10/27/2009 4:59:30 PM
Help! Help! Everybody's after us!
10/27/2009 5:15:09 PM
Gee, it had nothing to do with fact that Bush initiated an illegal war, and Gore educates the world, and that Bush had Americans universally hated world wide, and Obama has changed world opinion of Americans, did it?
10/27/2009 5:23:35 PM
Yeah? And? So? What?
10/27/2009 5:31:10 PM
"They didn't like George W. Bush and his conservative views."
If by "conservative views", you mean war mongering, yes.
"So they gave the Nobel Prize to the man he beat in 2000."
No. They gave the award to Al Gore fo his work to research and share knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change. He also shared the award with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
"They still don't like George W. Bush and conservatives."
My guess is it's because of your group's "our way or the highway" attitude in approaching diplomacy, and you're brilliantly failed and unnecessary invasion of Iraq.
"So they give it to George W. Bush's replacement after less than 8 months in office.
Obama was awarded the Nobel Prize for his efforts in fostering international peace and attempts at reestablishing diplomacy. Things which your beloved Dubya never, ever did.
"Norwegian liberals are no friends of Christians."
Yes. Hate a whole country for disagreeing with you. That's what your group does best, and is exactly why none of you ever receieved a Nobel Peace Prize :p
10/27/2009 5:36:10 PM
It may be fundie, but it really is almost all true... if you just insert "fundie" in front of "Christians" it's 100% accurate.
10/27/2009 5:38:53 PM
and Bush was a "friend" of Christians like speed bumps are friends of your suspension.
10/27/2009 5:41:06 PM
Oh Noes! not the dirty Norwegian liberalses!
10/27/2009 6:15:42 PM
It has nothing to do with "onservative" views. There was nothing conservative about Bush falsifying intelligence to justify an illegal war against a country that didn't attack us, torturing prisoners, swaggering into the UN and telling the rest of the world that it was his way or the highway, and denying scientific facts about the climate, to the point that he ordered the alteration and/or censorship of official environmental reports from his own scientists.
Obama got the prize for trying to beginning the process of undoing some of the damage Bush has done.
And Bush did NOT beat Gore in 2000. Kathryn Harris and the Supreme Court did.
10/27/2009 6:27:58 PM
Right it's all about you christians and your persecution and nothing about Bush being a terrible president.
10/27/2009 8:15:26 PM
Norwegian liberals are no friends of Christians.
'Cause friends like you are nothing but a headache.
10/27/2009 8:31:01 PM
If not being Bush doesn't deserve a prize, I don't know what does.
10/27/2009 8:39:47 PM
Norwegian liberals are no friends of Christians? You have a very cloistered view of the world. Actually, liberals everywhere, including Norwegian liberals, are friendly with Christians as well as being friendly with members of other religions. Many liberals are Christians or members of other religions.
You might be confusing Christians with fundamental cultists who are unchristian primitives with pretensions of being Christian, hardly anyone likes them since they are willfully brutish and proud of their stupidity.
True, liberals don't much like conservatives but conservatives don't like liberals much either.
10/27/2009 8:58:31 PM
Really I don't even get the rage about him getting the peace prize, I mean who else in the world right now is a better candidate? I hear lots of people (moderate and otherwise) say he didn't deserve it, but no-one puts up who they think should've gotten it.
10/28/2009 12:23:38 AM
You seem to have mistaken, we dislike people who start retarded wars in the middle east because of oil. And oh, Desmond Tutu. Won the nobel peace prize in 1984 and he is a bishop.

The trouble with the peace prize is that it is awarded annually, and some years it's tough to come up with a credible candidate. Hence the long list of unworthy receptors. The consequence is that the thing has become almost meaningless. It really should have been set up to only award outstanding contributions to peace, either ad hoc or on a longer interval.
10/28/2009 1:21:14 AM
Umm, the Nobel Prize ceremonies are in Stolkholm Sweden, not Norway. Such information is readily available if you have a computer... Dumbass.

> They didn't like George W. Bush and his conservative views.
George W. Bush started two wars. That kind of goes against the whole idea of Nobel Peace Price, don't you think?
10/28/2009 3:06:41 AM
Ummm... You do know it a PEACE prize. Not a "Let's start unnessary wars with everyone who pisses me off" prize.
Ladies and Gentlemen... JESUS WAS A LIBERAL!!!
10/28/2009 3:09:14 AM
Yes, most nobels are awarded by swedes and in sweden, but the peace prize is handed out by norwegians and in norway
