Hitler was NOT christian!

Posted on December 21, 2011 at 10:59am 28 Comments

I know, I know... Not this again. I'm sure you all are as sick of hearing this lame-ass defense as I am. However,I recently came across a new spin (new to me) on the Hitler debate. Here is what I encountered posted on a Christian forum in response to one of my posts:


In 1998 documents were released by Cornell University from the Nuremberg Trials that revealed Nazi plans to exterminate Christianity at the end of World War II The documents cover the Nuremberg trials of leading…

In response to Jebus-Ween, I propose the Pastafarian communities unite to spread the gospel of the FSM. I however think the Christians are going about it all wrong. We want to lure the children in with candy. Let them associate His Noodleness with treats and goodies, not false promises and disappointment. And of course, attached to each piece of candy is the real treat: A tract that preaches the Pasta in all its marinara glory! Let us not forget the adults! Invite them to join you for some…


Christian “Logic” and “Morality”

Posted on October 25, 2011 at 9:26am 10 Comments

Just when I thought I’d heard it all, one of the Christies drops this little gem on me. In discussing the super happy fun times associated with Lot and his daughters, I got this reply:


“Lot wasn't a Xian because Christ wasn't born yet. Therefore, not Xian morality.”


So, it would seem that she is claiming that anything that happened before the birth of Christ cannot be associated with the moral structure of their religion. This one is new to me.

I’d love…

I go through the first four pages. I had to stop. I haven't picked it up again. The sheer amount of plt holes was astounding. I have to mentally prepare myself before I pick it up again.
