Ooo-kaaaaay ... maybe there's a context for this in the thread?
Edit: Nope, still doesn't make much sense. It appears to be a half-assed attempt to quote the Bible, but the context just wasn't the right one for this verse ...

If one converts a Muslim rock to Christianity, must that rock be killed as an apostate?
3/27/2006 8:01:44 PM
So according to FOCUS-POCUS the actual number of Christians in the world is in the high octillions?
3/27/2006 8:18:23 PM
no, because a rock is an inanimate object, THAT'S why it's not praising God. Or, indeed, doing anything.

Just because rocks don't eat people doesn't mean they aren't thirsting for our sweet, sweet blood. FEAR THE ROCKS, PEOPLE!

We built this church!
We built this church!
We built this church on ROCK AND ROLL!

Stoned to death I believe.

everybody must get stoned

Rock on, Gerard.

Even the ones that are used to build mosques?

Why, I do believe that FOCUS has, in fact, been stoned. He was probably stoned when he wrote this, in fact!

Given that the definition of stoning is to throw stones at the offending individual until they die, I would put in that no punishment is required for such a convert-rock, as it is already dead.
You know what would be fun? Learning necromancy, reanimating something, and forcing it to commit a crime for which the punishment is death. What would they do? Revivify it?

Especially the ones used to build mosques.
3/28/2006 4:49:38 AM
What rocks? The ones in your head?
3/28/2006 12:37:54 PM
Just because the rocks don't sacrifice babies doesn't mean they aren't worshipping Satan.
Just because the rocks aren't going on television to ask for money doesn't mean they aren't televangelists.
I like this game.

Rocks for Jesus

I think that they're invoking the line "O Christ our God, Who didst build Thy Church upon the rock of faith"
10/3/2009 8:49:58 AM
Peter, is that you?
10/3/2009 9:41:00 AM
But they aren't, for many reasons aside from they're rocks.
They accuse us a paganism then attribute God status to rocks?

To be fair, FOCUS does kinda prove that mainly-inanimate objects can praise / believe in god.
My first thought when reading this was to picture the scene as two stones were punished for adultery, leviticus-style.
If rocks are capable of praising something, are able to do other things like date for example? I'd love to hear more about rock-dating from a fundamentalist POV.
Finally, I suggest that unlike FOCUS, building blocks get laid at least once.

That being said, this post is silly, but not especially obnoxious: Meh'd
