Yeah, I remember the day our government publicly stated that it was fine with citizens murdering one another willy-nilly.

So Jesus was only kidding about the whole "render unto Caesar" thing?
7/29/2007 3:15:04 PM
Geez, Bish, if the government says we're free to act as we want, how do you see that as control? Just curious.

So we're being flooded in rural England as a result of being too tolerant of teh Gays.
Speaking as an Englishman, I'm ashamed to breathe the same air as this idiot.

The Roman empire, Constantine, Justinian, Charlemagne, Otto the Great, Charles the Great, Napoleon, Mussolini, Hitler, the Pope, the Vatican and many others have been identified as "the beast". Here is yet another bozo who claims to know what the hell the psycho who wrote Revelation is rambling on about.

And the religious communities are not... institutions?
I have seen some pretty sound arguments from anarchists. This isn't one of them.
7/29/2007 4:12:47 PM
So you're saying the government should behave more like "the beast"?
7/29/2007 4:20:31 PM
The bible does no such thing, fucking read it once in a while.

control, v.t. to leave free to act as they want

Gee, nice to know English fundies are finally becoming competitive in idiotic remarks with their American counterparts.

Is there a Lewis Carroll Award?
7/29/2007 8:18:57 PM
OOhhh yes, a "Through the Looking Glass" award - an alternate name for the Bizarro Universe award.
7/29/2007 9:20:31 PM
But, Rev., remember the Bible says all government officals are ordained by God. By your logic, God himself has ordained the "beast."
7/29/2007 9:53:31 PM
Well, if you take the literalist/eschatological/historically-ignorant reading of Revelation as a literal chain of events leading to the end of the world...then yeah, God does ordain the Beast.
Of course, if fundies were to take the time to figure out how Revelation would have been interpreted at the time it was written, they'd lose some of their favorite blood-porn.

Evil government, playing God by not being oppressive enough!
7/29/2007 11:46:53 PM
Government has never been about telling people what they CAN do. Government has always been about telling people what they CANNOT do!!

Oh well, I suppose we Brits do have to have our own answer to Fred Phelps..
He says our "immoral" lifestyles and tolerance of gay marriage has caused the flooding but if that was the case then why is Brighton still dry? And what have the people of Tewksbury done to deserve that?
Does your god have really bad aim or what?
7/30/2007 3:49:37 AM
What? The bible calls something it doesn’t like a derogatory name? Get the fuck outta here! You mean like dog, whore, evil, defiled, unclean, demon, devil, etc.? It also tells you to pay your taxes and obey its laws. Yup, one can argue for or against just about anything with the bible.
7/30/2007 5:38:29 AM
This one hurts...
7/30/2007 6:06:55 AM
How does letting people do as they want equal to controlling someone's morals?
7/30/2007 7:03:25 AM
Freedom is of the devil.
