Quote# 87863

Satan often works through humor to deceive people and draw them away from the truth. When the sitcom, I LOVE LUCY starring Lucille Ball first appeared in the 1950's, many people at the time had a huge problem with it because it centered around a manipulative woman who was constantly lying to her husband, family and friends.

Lucy's lies and deceptive behavior were clothed in humor, and while it was difficult for people to receive in the 1950's, today we have deteriorated so far morally that no one even bats an eye. Lucy even looks like the Devil, continually shifting her eyes and lying about everything. The “I LOVE LUCY” show ought to have been renamed “WHO'S THE BIGGEST LIAR?”

As evidence that Satan was behind the I LOVE LUCY show, consider the following. Lucille's close friend, Carole Lombard had died in a horrible plane crash in 1942. Carole was a second generation Bahá'í and was formally declared in 1938. Lucille Ball said her decision to do “I Love Lucy” was made after Lombard came to her in a dream in 1951 and advised her to take a chance and enter the unknown and at the time, risky world of television. So Lucille Ball claimed that the spirit of her friend Carole Lombard, who'd been dead for 9 years, came to her in dream to give career advice. That is a demonic practice known as “necromancy” (communicating with the dead).

Could David J. Stewart possibly get anymore out of touch? "I Love Lucy" ran on TV from 1951 to 1957. I swear this ass clown would be happier living before the advent of electricity and flush toilets.

Aren't there enough genuinely frightening things around in this world for you to have to go scaring yourself with "I Love Lucy"? Now, toddle over to Men Going To the Toilet and find yourself.

Pffft. Stop judging such modern flights of fancy as TV shows from the 50s. What you should really be worried about is the impact of dancing in post-abolition England. Verily was Cromwell correct to halt such an odious practise.

Is he on a mission to individually decry every single celebrity who ever lived as a servant of Satan?

I don't think people did have a huge problem with it. I think that then, and for a long time before, lying to your wife or husband was a stock joke in American comedy.
The idea that lies were more difficult to accept in the 1950s is a strange one, because it was a time of huge conformism and thus, hypocrisy. The fact that you had to stay married to your spouse was accepted but so was the idea that this could be a burden, and this was a source of humour. You can see this in stuff like I Love Lucy and the old stand-up comic with his "take my wife, please" jokes. Alcoholism, adultery, and low-level drug abuse were rife in 50s suburbia. This, and things like homosexuality or unorthodox political opinions, were simply repressed and covered up.
So, far from being unacceptable because Lucy lies and deceives her husband, I think it was reflective of the hypocrisy of the time.

Hi folks, how you all doing tonight? Sorry about the smell of brimstone. Stay away from the buffet, especially the Garbanzos in the salad bar, heh,heh.

An Incubus, a Succubus and a Nun walk into a bar...

Except that Lucy always got found out and had some 'splainin' to do.

But if Satan works through humor, that would explain why so many fundie Christians are so humorless.

If "many people at the time had a huge problem with it", that just proves that there've been uptight shithead God-botherers with a loose connection to reality and too much time on their hands since at least the 1950s.

Also, Mr. Molest Children and then Hide It has no right to criticize anyone else for lying.

If you have a dream about a dead person, it's necromancy. If Abraham Lincoln is in one of my dreams, clearly that's the actual spirit of Abraham Lincoln visiting me.

Poor Abraham must not get any peace in the afterlife, considering how often people must have dreams about him.

So you object to people making decision based on spooks that aren't your approved spooks.

Wow! Went over to the site, and all I can say is "What a loon!" Apparently, Satan and I have the same favorite cartoon! (Family Guy)

Isn't it odd that so much of the evidence provided by Christians looks so much like a naturally occurring phenomenon, in this case a tragic accident. But silly me, apparently this is evidence.

Strangly this loon is right in that I Love Lucy did have has it's main character a women who lies and manipulates constantly. However it was a sitcom and meant to provoke laughs, not to be a guide to life. Seriously this loon needs to get a life.

This is why we need good public education!

"Satan often works through humor to deceive people and draw them away from the truth."

Ah, so that's why fundies are notoriously humorless and incapable of detecting any form of satire.

"When the sitcom, I LOVE LUCY starring Lucille Ball first appeared in the 1950's, many people at the time had a huge problem with it because it centered around a manipulative woman who was constantly lying to her husband, family and friends."

Granted, I wasn't around in the 1950s, but I still think you're full of shit. As far as I'm aware, it was an immediate classic.

"As evidence that Satan was behind the I LOVE LUCY show, consider the following. Lucille's close friend, Carole Lombard had died in a horrible plane crash in 1942. Carole was a second generation Bahá'í and was formally declared in 1938.

You're still as insane as ever, Dave. I do wish you'd take my advice and seek professional help from a qualified psychiatric facility. Though, I suppose there's a chance that you're actually posting from such a place to begin with...

On top of that, Lucy's lies usually got her in trouble & her schemes usually bombed or backfired in some way.

Dave, you're an idiot.

@ 1414430:

You bring up an interesting point. It is well-known that the fundies on this site routinely display hypocrisy and shallowness, not only in failing to recognize the fallacies in their arguments, but also in their personal lives. They are quite avaricious and obsessed with keeping up with the Joneses, covering up their faults, and generally doing things which Jesus specifically told people not to do. Therefore, I am beginning to think that the fundie idolization of the 1950s is done not in spite of the Stepford Wives-like existence of that era, but rather because of it. They are well aware of the shallowness and hypocrisy of both those times and of themselves, and thus admire the situation of the 1950s for that is when such behavior was not only accepted, but expected.

By David J. Stewart's logic, every Christian must be practicing necromancy when they pray to Jesus.

Satan often works through humor

Is that why fundies don't have a sense of humor?

Or maybe Ms Ball simply felt inspired to do television comedy... And attributed her inspiration to her memorys of a dead friend.

That's is a fundie practice known as "lunacy".
