Quote# 76322

Today at work a co-worker and I were on our breaks at the same time. We had to eat out in the lobby (I work at a McDonald's) because the store manager was talking to another employee about something. He was making small talk and then out of nowhere asked me what I thought about the mosque in New York. I said that it shouldn't be built because of what Muslims did on 9/11. He said something about not all Muslims being that way. I said that Islam is a religion that tells its adherents to kill those who won't submit. He said (I'm paraphrasing but it was pretty close to this), "Well, I won't kill you if you don't submit." I kind of suspected that he was a Muslim but now I finally knew. And I have to admit, that last thing he said chilled me to the bone.

Anyway, I had a great opportunity to witness and I failed. I just froze up; I wasn't really sure what to say. I've never actually spoken to a person who's holy book tells him to kill me and everyone else that worships the true Living God. I don't know if I'm asking for advice or just sharing a story.

"I've never actually spoken to a person who's holy book tells him to kill me"

I have, just about every day. Fortunately, most people don't take the Bible quite that literally.

Just keep flippin' burgers of the al'mighty cattle god, McDonalds.

ThePenguin, there's a reason you're working at McDonald's.

Also, you don't know shit about the Qu'ran or your own religion's history.

That is all.

9/26/2010 7:28:21 AM

Bearing in mind your total verbal incompetence and the fact that you work in MacDonnals, It's understandable why you failed so miserably in witnessing.

9/26/2010 7:43:45 AM


Lyin' fer Jesus.

What's to fear? A truly fundie Muslim would not eat at McDonalds. They fry sausage on that grill.

9/26/2010 7:58:50 AM


Yeah, I suppose your bible calling to put down the non believers isn't telling you to kill people too

9/26/2010 8:39:19 AM


And THATS why you are working at Mcdonalds you ass backwards shitkicker.

9/26/2010 9:02:43 AM

This is getting crazy.

a) Are you all adults knocking people who work at McDonalds?

b) ThePenguin is still in high school.

Yikes, guys.
Trust me, the RR members in general make me ill. But just ripping into someone for where they work is ridiculous.

I don't think he's homeschooled, but hopefully this job will give him a chance to see the real world rather than this fantasy he's been living in.

"I just froze up; I wasn't really sure what to say."

Well, yeah, you work at McDonald's numbnuts.
Best git ta church and let the preacher man tell you what to say when faced with people who are more intelligent than you are (which is, well, pretty much everyone).
Oh, and my Holy Book of Grammar hates it when people don't know the differcnce between who's and whose.

"I don't know if I'm asking for advice or just sharing a story."

Isn't that nice? Now could you just give me my fucking burger and shut the fuck up?

Uh...I'd hate to be the one to explain to this moron that he and his Muslim co-worker worship the same God.

9/26/2010 10:22:47 AM


Of course he was "chilled to the bone" over an innocuous statement like that. These are people who jump like rabbits at their own shadows and see signs and portents everywhere. They get off on being afraid. From an outsider's perspective, it looks like the Raptards' greatest virtue is fear, and the hierarchy is based on who is currently the most terrified. Weird.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines a 'McJob' as an "an unstimulating low-paid job with few prospects".

After that McDonald's planned a public petition to have this definition changed... Their UK CEO, Peter Beresford said 'The company would prefer the definition to be rewritten to "reflect a job that is stimulating, rewarding ... and offers skills that last a lifetime."

And pigs might fly, waaahaaaa, ha, ha, haaaaaaa...

9/26/2010 10:32:09 AM

No they're just mocking raptards that work at McDonalds, a place where they've said in the past that they'd NEVER go to because it supports the "Ebil Gays".

And it's most likely too late for this guy he's already too convinced into being terrified of everyone who thinks differently. He won't learn a thing because he'll believe they're just trying to covert or kill him.

9/26/2010 10:42:00 AM


Oh wow, I just read further in that thread and someone actually suggested Chick tracts as a witnessing tool. Excuse me while I giggle myself silly...

> "Well, I won't kill you if you don't submit."

Damn! The bastard threatened you with non-violence! A very cunning move that leaves fundies dumbfounded - because if someone doesn't do anything, what the heck can the fundies do unto them?

> I just froze up; I wasn't really sure what to say. I've never actually spoken to a person who's holy book tells him to kill me and everyone else that worships the true Living God.

But I am talking to you right now under the exact same conditions and I'm not freezing up.

A tip for the oblivious: groupthink takes less effort than having a personal conviction. People who buy into groupthink have some sort of idea how the group wants the individual to act, and act accordingly - and get their butts kicked. People with a genuine conviction know what kind of mess they're going to get into, are forewarned, and learn from their mistakes.

9/26/2010 11:26:28 AM


You got chilled because he said he wouldn't kill you? You're just weird man.

9/26/2010 11:38:49 AM

The L

You're right; you never have. Because your holy book is the one with all the genocide in it.

9/26/2010 11:41:22 AM

Haha, you hate Muslims even though you've never even met one. Idiot.
I guess this is what you get when you believe stuff just because some guy told you it was true instead of thinking for yourself.

Reverend Jeremiah

Might as well expect much more failures in the future, as Christianity is one of many instituted systems of fail.

9/26/2010 12:14:28 PM


Lol, you work at McDonald's? That homeschooling sure took you far.

9/26/2010 1:07:44 PM


Why is everyone knocking people who work at McDonalds? This economy has hit people hard. I'd work at McDonalds if I could.

9/26/2010 1:25:14 PM


Well, he's right in that Quran does say to kill those who wont submit to Islam, the good thing is that most Muslims are smart enough to ignore that part. Just like most Christians are smart enough to ignore the parts of the bible that talk about killing unbelievers / gays / adultrers / disobedient children / sabbath workers etc.

9/26/2010 1:41:17 PM


"(I work at a McDonald's)"

I'm shocked.

9/26/2010 1:43:10 PM
