Quote# 80576

You'd think a talking book would be harmless
My husband loves to "read" talking books from the state library for the blind.

They send him a catalog every couple of months; and he selects the titles he wants. They let him have a couple at a time.

He just came out of his room, outraged. Apparently two of the best selling selections involve a woman having an affair with a man, and later, his son... another a widower who has an affair with a man.

End Times indeed.

So why don't you go online and read more thorough reviews to him before he orders, you lazy tramp?

I love how unashamedly crazy these people can be sometimes.

Don't ever read the bible! You'd hate it! brother killing brother, rape, murder, more rape, someone killing someone else so they can have the pretty wife, masturbation, sex-slavery, incest ... disgusting, filthy, degenerate!

Fictional characters having sex?!?!?! Oh, the humanity!

4/12/2011 3:35:15 PM


Pfft, that's nothing. You should be more concerned about poorly-written books about the End Times with insipidly stereotypical characters and a penchant for not doing the research. (*coughLeftBehindcough*)

End Times indeed.


Oh, you were being serious.... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!

Tolpuddle Martyr

Of course he had to listen to the entire thing before he got outraged!

Why should a "talking book" be any different from printed books? Is this moron implying that somehow blind people are also less mature or less emotionally developed?

I don't understand. Why did you think an audio book would have more conservative content than a regular book? Blind people have sex too, you know.

4/13/2011 1:07:44 AM

Oh honey. If fundies had any IDEA what was in books they'd be banned entirely. I'm so grateful the idiots don't read.

4/13/2011 1:20:34 AM

BTW, I bet this was The Lost Language of Cranes. Good book.

4/13/2011 1:22:47 AM

So, because some books are not of his taste, it's the end of the world?. Wellcome to the real world, which is not likely to end soon, don't worry.

4/13/2011 1:49:16 AM


Now, every little complaint I hear, I'm going to respond with "end times indeed". Photocopier not working? End times indeed. Can't find a carpark? End times indeed. Boring sandwiches for lunch again? End times indeed.

You'd think freedom of expression would be honorable for a fundie.

Oh wait...

4/13/2011 3:00:43 AM


I thought we had been done with this. Apparently not.

Why does this remind me of the story about fundamentalists, who, unable to listen to music backwards because everything new was released on CDs, started listening to it right way around, and were outraged to hear obscene lyrics?

I've read way worse books. Chill.

(emphasis added)

'Where we're going, we won't need eyes to see.'

'You know nothing. "Hell" is only a word. The reality is much, much worse.'

Dr. Weir (Sam Neill, "Event Horizon")

I'm surprised he's listening to audiobooks that are anything other than the KJV. Oh, the 'Hell' that is literature which contains concepts and storylines that one would never see in the New Testament! (PROTIP: they do appear in the Old Testament). One word: Madrassas.

Liberate tutame ex inferis.

Did you seriously just refer to an audio book as a "talking book"?

4/13/2011 7:54:06 PM


Of course! There is no mention of affairs, incest, murder, infanticide(bashing their heads against rocks or have a bear rip them to shreds),pedophilia(keep all the women children for yourself). How about giving up your daughters for a gang rape only to have pop impregnate them later?

Stewie said My my, what a thumping good read, lions eating Christians, people nailing each other to 2 x 4's. I'll say, you won't find that in Winnie the Pooh.

Because the bible is the perfect vision of morality when it comes to extramarital affairs.

That was difficult to type with a straight face.
