    you all are out of your minds… If you do have brains you should be solving something worthwhile… Christianity has been around long before you and nothing will stop it… Heaven and Hell are real as well, and you will go one place or the other. It isn’t multiple choice… I hope that someday you will realize the truth about this life and find some meaning for yours…

    Oh. Go. Away. What is it about the religious wingnuts (with no sense of humor–or irony) who come here and spew their talking-point foolishness? Jeebus! Just go away and leave us alone. We’re not surfing over to your mindless little sites and pointing out how you really know nothing about Christianity or the Bible (in its many translations and contradictions). Just. Go. Away!

    So it’s OK to find a Gay gene, but when the bunsen burner is on the other foot, all hell breaks loose. Last time I checked, that qualified as hypocrasy. Why don’t you pick up your stones and go bash someone who is violating your precious commandments or better, yet, talk to the Burning George W. Bush and feed it some of the tumbleweeds he’s been able to corral. You can always picnic at that new scenic roadstop, uhhh, I think they call it the Grand Canyon. Better hurry though, it might go away as fast as it was made-wasn’t that six days?

    christianity is an abomination that needs to be stopped. society’s accepting views of christians is offensive. they’re all over sitcoms like it’s nothing! soon we’ll have sitcoms just revolving around the “christian lifestyle” which is not appropriate for my children. i don’t want them to grow up thinking it’s ok to be christian and i certainly don’t want the media to glorify them like they’re normal people or something. they are sick and twisted individuals that need serious help and psychological examination.

    (for anyone that plans on flipping the fuck out, that’s a little something called satire~)

    Well done. I like the attention to detail, even down to the scrolling ticker on the bottom. Destined to become a classic. Sure, some people will complain about it, but their responses should be a good discriminator between the bright and the brain-dead.

    I hope you all realize this is a Political satire show (an Australian version of The Daily Show/ Colbert Report). It is a joke, please take it as such.

    I’m afraid you misunderstand. Christianity is not genetic. One isn’t simply BORN Christian. It’s a lifestyle choice; a choice with serious consequences.

    We ought to remember that the next time Christians clamor for special rights all their own. Or desecrate the Stonewall Inn with their vile Holy Water. Or corrupt the minds of the young by bringing their puerile so-called moments of “silence” into the public schools.

    If we allow Christians to become a suspect class on the basis of their lifestyle choices, next thing you know they’ll control the definition of whole social institutions!

    And nmhood, I do hope you realize likewise that I was only joking—though the joke was on me because ranatalus beat me to the punchline.

    Alas, I wish Webster were joking, but I fear that post was in earnest. Evidently Webster has discovered that it’s far simpler to read that section in The Sophomore Handbook that mocks variations in narrative and translation of the Biblical texts, than to read and understand the entire Biblical canon itself.

    Well maybe that is a pretty funny joke…

    Redwoodgay; Is absolutely right. Any of you who dont understand that this is a joke is out of your mind. Christian scientists can find a “gay gene”, but Homosexual scientists would never even be second guessed to find a “Christian gene”? My oh me, what the world has come to…

    Of course it’s satirical, intelligentlyignorant, and so have several of these posts been satirical in response.

    WTF? In my work in the past, I’ve been involved with three major translations. What point are you trying to make here?

    Well I don’t doubt you, Webster, and it sounds like uphill work and noble. There haven’t been fully three major English translations in recent memory, however, so I presume you refer to paraphrases or else to new editions of previous translations. In any event, the answer to your question is that this exceedingly sophomoric statement of yours, amidst your call for humor, was quite the opposite of funny:

    “Just go away and leave us alone. We’re not surfing over to your mindless little sites and pointing out how you really know nothing about Christianity or the Bible (in its many translations and contradictions). Just. Go. Away!”

    Perhaps you could explain the joke. Presumably you are, as a Biblical exegete, accustomed to dissecting the butterfly.

    The new editions of the previous translations were indeed complete reworkings (retranslations), the REB and the NRSV–and the third, I apologize, was only of the NT. However, if you had been in on a previous posting here–not that long ago on Obama–you would be aware of the haranguing that took place by one “Marianne” who was determined to bring us all to Jayzus and condemn all gay people to Hell. It wasn’t pleasant, and I simply wanted to head off another ongoing confrontation. But of course I can only bow to your overweening snarkiness and slink off chastised in the face of your superiority.

    I don’t mind defending this site and the people who visit here from mindless Fundamentalism, but it would be nice to feel as though, when I come here, we wouldn’t attack each other with unwarranted bitchiness.

    Well Webster, then I apologize for being disrespectful to you. I love my pre-ordered and newly arrived NRSV, incidentally, and am delighted to find a more Hebraist reading of the Greek texts. Though it should have been obvious to me long ago, it is only now dawning on me how much damage has been done to world culture by Biblical literalists. I can’t imagine what the SBC, for example, was thinking when it let open the floodgates to contemporary, brain-dead literalism. What next, Presbyterians embracing relativism?

    Now that I understand some of the rules of the house, I’ll be honored to join you in a good Fundamentalist Stomp next time one of the snake charmers rears its venomous head. The Divine Miss M. is indeed a prophetess.

    […] If you know someone who is afflicted by the tragic disease of fundamentalism there is some hope. Scientists have located the gene that causes Christianity and are working diligently to develop a cure. In the mean time you can find some peace by reading […]

    Gosh. As a (non-fundamentalist) gay (non-fundamentalist) christian, I should have (fundamentally) self-destructed years ago. So, when they develop a gene therapy for this, will I be an atheist or just an agnostic? Will we be singled out and sent to christiantration camps? Are they going to have to change the words in all the hymnals? “… and they’ll know we are chris-tians by our blood, by our blood; yes they’ll kno-ow we are chris-tians by our blood.”

    H.L.,

    It’s just a dead ringer for another of those fundinanities at which one indispensably laughs, lest one weeps — or else resorts to violence. The satire is so close (dare I say the word “verisimilitudinous”?) that it’s almost — almost — convincing as the latest gust of the uniquely twisted fighting words that the fundidiots crank out even while they sleep, perchance to think.

    And though I myself am a straight Christian, I say we do to suchlike fundoids what Miss M counseled all of us to do to fools who can’t take a joke…
