2. There's no crazy like god crazy

I wonder why he's pointing fingers at everybody else instead of getting his own house in order. My guess is that his house wouldn't stand close scrutiny, at all.

6. That would be the

batshit crazy wing of the charismatic evangelical Christians. She's a little more off the rails than most of them, however, but many of them aren't far behind her. That NICStudent sounds like another member of the BSC Church, too.

12. Bat Shit Crazy

LOL. I was clarifying the ones that pretty much speak in tongues, handles snakes and provide healing of the blind while extorting donations type. I'm from the South. I've known more than a few adherents. If one whackjob church shuts down, they flock to the next craziest on the list.

4. Translation please.

 

It appears that I have misplaced my Whack-a-loon/English dictionary.

7. I'm not sure that can be translated

unless you brain has been eroded into charismatic fervor of evangelical lunacy. People like that go into trances and speak in tongues WITHOUT drugs, which should tell you that it takes special effort to get there. They probably have a snake handling service every month at whatever church that person attends.

15. No snake handlers in Idaho, sorry

But I'll see your snake handlers and raise you one Shaun Winkler, grand wizard of the Idaho Ku Klux Klan. Mr. Winkler owns 40 acres in Bonner County on which he conducts weekly cross lighting ceremonies...and he came in third out of five in the Bonner County sheriff primary.180 people voted for him, and there aren't that many Klansmen there.

There are no black people in Bonner County, so Idaho Klansmen make even less sense than Illinois Nazis.

10. There's a long line of people in front of her

If you go to."My Turn" on the Opinion menu, you'll find someone who thinks the Japanese Navy bombed Pearl Harbor rather than hitting the mainland is all the guns in private hands - apparently the fact that the Japanese wanted to sink the fleet homeported at Pearl is beside the point.

I once asked the managing editor why we print this shit. He described it as cheap entertainment.
