These people are nucking futs...

the 'Rapture Ready' website

Comment: Here's a sampling of the thought/religion of the whackjob sheople being used by the Bushies/neo-cons as a power base in the U.S.A. Of course theyr'e all on board - they want all hell to break loose. Why? Because that means that 'Jeebus' (as opposed to the Lord, God, and Saviour Jesus Christ) will come, rapture them to safety, and leave everyone else to suffer the agonies of the anti-Christ. And how do they know this? Because the 'Babble' told 'em so (as opposed to the Holy Scriptures.)

Frankly, deep down I think these people may just get what they want - save the rapture part (since according to the Scriptures when the anti-Christ does arrive, he will persecute and martyr any who profess the Holy Name - a little hard if all such souls were 'raptured' away, donchathank?). Boy, that'll be one big let down...


Minion of the anti-Christ
just got done with a fundagelical!
(I always thought there was something
sinister about the Smurfs!)


Also, I found it funny that their site goes on a screed against Catholicism, all the while featuring a gigantic advert for Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ on their homepage - a film which is essentially a journey into traditionalist Roman Catholic piety, and perhaps the most elaborate 'Passion Play' to be ever put on film. Silly fundies...

When I saw a link to this blog I was quite happy, as I respect your opinion on religious matters Seraphim. Once I got here though, I figured that I must have made a mistake. Somehow, I accidentally came up Serge's evil twin's website. All the politicial crap is the same, it just has more conservative religious beliefs. Very unfortunate.

Justin,

Somehow, I accidentally came up Serge's evil twin's website. All the politicial crap is the same, it just has more conservative religious beliefs. Very unfortunate.Hahaha...sorry, the "evil twin" thing caught me off guarde. :-)

In times past (and this is still pretty much the case on the religious message forums) I've generally "held my cards" pretty close to my chest, and said very little on secular/cultural/political issues. I think you also observed once that I rarely said much of myself, and this is true - much of what I wrote was (and in that context, still is) devoid of "me", save in some very narrow respects. Generally my focus was doctrinal (and I hate to admit it, often doctrinaire). This blog is my space to, in part, to offset this imbalance.

It will get ugly. It will often be a let down (as you've aptly testified). But it will also be a part of me; and while I do enjoy engaging people in discussion, when all is said and done, it is very much a "take it or leave it" kind of thing.

This is a little piece of who I am - and if that's disappointing well...(shoulder shrug). Though I doubt many would consider me even close to being "aged" (hardly!), I think I have reached a point where being overly concerned with the approval of others is passe'.I like you Justin, and respect your mind and your sincerity - I hope you cruise on by every now and then. But if not, that's ok too.
