Relax, Mathew Hagee. It's not the end of THE world. It's just the end of yours.

I once worked with a fellow named Sean who was always on about the rapture. In 1999 a mutual friend of ours threw a big party in early December. Sean had a few drinks and started up that it was all happening on December 31. He wouldn't shut up about it and people were getting annoyed.

He ended up lying on his back under a table, wailing that nothing mattered, he was completely sure, and he was betting his immortal soul on it. I said, Sean if you're so damned sure, I'll give you $5,000 bucks for everything you own: your house, your car, everything. It's all mine on January 1, 2000. I'll have my lawyer draw up the papers. Deal? The silence was deafening. He wasn't THAT sure.

Besides, why would I care about man lying with man or woman lying with woman? It's cat lying with dog that should concern everyone. I mean, fuck, this is legal in ALL FIFTY STATES right now, people!

Funny enough in SA on the eve of the Millenium, a self confessed prophet, with a PHd, made psuedo- scientific calculations that the end of year 2000 wa the end of the world. Religious persons flocked his meetings, paying obviously, to hear him utter his nonsensical stuff. What amazed some of us is that there were other who called his findings nonsensical and 'unscriptural'. Nine yrs after I became a free-thinker, an Atheist, I cannot wait for a day when not only xians but all religious manaics are poofed out of our lovely plante

Okay, so the rapture is about to occur. When? Next week? Year's end? The end of the decade? This century? The guy says it's "very easy to know" so why does he leave out the rather important matter of timing?

That's the fun part about religion: the curious lack of high-risk predictions. And when people DO actually make high-risk predictions about the end of the world?

Crackpot: Mark my words! The end is neigh! It's coming on May 21, 2011!
Me: Gosh! Well, May 21 came and went. Still here!
Crackpot: Oops! Did I say May 21? I meant October 21, 2011!  Heh. forgot to carry the 5!
Me: I see. Well, October 21 came and went. Nothing happened. Hello? Are you there? Hello?

We ought to consider the possibility that Jesus came to Rapture the righteous, and only found a couple of people to fit his magnificent selection criteria.  He could then have whisked them off.  The rest of us rejects could have been left behind. End of story.

At least the devil uses seduction techniques.  God just yells, drowns, sends pestilences, kills off firstborns, makes bears rip up children, turns people into salt, gives boils and slaughters families.

Give me a good seduction any time, over that kind of temper tantrum.

You know what? I hope the rapture is real. Then maybe you fundie nut jobs will go away and we can get some actual work done here on Earth.

So I guess god likes his porn to be guy/girl only, wait a second does that mean he likes watching dudes. So god is secretly gay? It's easy to make logical statements without the confines of logic.

He really needs a refresher course world history and human civilizations.  Nearly everything he cites as being in the time of Noah and Lot has been present throughout the whole of human history.  There was no such gap in human behavior even during the golden age of Christendom (I hate that word).

What I find humorous about the whole same sex marriage debate is the slippery slope argument made by opponents about next allowing humans to marry or have sex with animals.  Ummm...according to a number of sources, sex with animals is already legal in a number of states - Texas, Kentucky, Alabama, and West Virginia to name a few!  Look it up, but here is one source provided by the Being Liberal page on Facebook:  Where It's Legal to Do an Eagle States.

So do I. Slit the animal's throat in a ritual. Make the animal's skin and bones into furniture. Send the animal through a factory that rips it into nuggets. But for God's sake, don't FUCK the animal. That's sick and immoral.
