Oh, this is jsut too weird . . . .

I absolutely adore Paris Love, Ex-Stripper. I read her blog all the time. I happen to know her form a professional stripper web site (yes, we have those) and I think she is one of the smartest, most beautiful women ever to get naked for money.

Anyway, I found this on her blog. It is a list of the top 100 weird bizarre things people have posted on Fundamentalist chat rooms. I know some of my friends from The Denim Jumper have issues with the fundies. I don't ever go there myself, (why go where my sluttish, wanton, sinful way of putting food on my table is not welcome?) so I was completely ignorant of the depth of ignorance, stupidity, and hatred people can spew. Here are some examples:

For hypocrisy:

[One Christian speaking to another]

You are banned. You are not a Christian for Christians don't accuse brothers and sisters in Christ of being non-Christian.

For just plain stupidity:

I can sum it all up in three words: Evolution is a lie.

For completely missing the point of Christianity:

I honestly don't care about your rights. If it were up to me, all Atheists would be burnt at the stake and or cast into a river with weights tied to their ankles and or placed before the firing squad, etc etc etc.

For just plain meanness:

[about a girl being born with mental disabilities]

This girl is like a leper so what she needs to do is try and find god

if she really believes she can be healed from this state, she will be healed from this state

Most afflictions like this are caused by sins committed while still inside the womb. If she can repent for what she does god will embrace her and make her as human as you or me but if she chooses not to she'll always be like this

god tests every one of us [emphasis added at the FSTDT site]

For tragic intolerance:

Just recently my son Bobby came out to me. I had been worried for awhile. His teachers said most of his grades were slipping and he seemed depressed and withdrawn.

Bobby said he'd been hiding it for awhile because he was afraid I would reject him. I sat him down and told him that I loved him and that God loved him, but that his salvation was in danger if he did not resist his unnatural tempations. I told him how being gay would mean he would live a shorter life, and that if he couldnt change his orientation he could be celibate like most the ex-gays are. He started crying saying something along the lines of "I knew you wouldnt understand! You're just like everyone else!" before running to his room and slamming the door.

What did I do wrong? I dont want to lose my son, but I fear I already have. I talked it over with his therapist, who had the ludicrous idea that homosexuality was unchangable and that trying to repress could lead to lots of psychological damage (I've dropped him and will try to be finding another therapist with more moral beliefs). I wouldnt be surprised if he's the one who's feeding my son all the homosexual propaganda about how its 'ok' to be gay. That, or how homosexuality has engulfed the media, making it seem 'cool' and 'hip' and how they were just another oppressed minority. You didnt have to worry about seeing two men making out on tv at my age! I dont want to sound like a fanatic, but Im worried what other effects will come out of this increasingly secular, immoral society obsessed with filth.

Am I too late? Or is it possible to save my son

[Note: the boy eventually took his own life.]

And for complete lack of irony:

[Am I in discussion with a human who has a functioning brain?]

What does a functioning brain have to do with the Bible?

In a backwards sort of way, these guys are really a pretty good endorsement for Christianity. What other organization, peopled with morons such as these, could continue to function for 2000 years, unless God actually was on their side?

Three responses for the price of 1 :-).

I cannot believe that mother and the ending to that story. Self righteous bitch. And she probably doesn't even blame herself, but society.

I will do the meme. Today. Along with Kitten's. Today. On list to do. :-).

I'm sorry about your mom. Repeat number one, with less venom.
