Tea Party Owes More to the Church of Satan Than to Jesus
Tea partiers love to quote Ayn Rand, the atheist novelist, philosopher and patron saint of capitalism. What many of them don't know is that Rand was also the inspiration behind Anton LaVey's Church of Satan. LaVey once declared: "I give people Ayn Rand with trappings." How to self-described Christians within the tea party feel about that? I'd love to know.

2. Jesus is all about being loving and giving, not about greed and hate.

5. That's what always gets me when the baggers start in with their religion. Nothing
that dribbles out of their mouths ever equates with what they babble on about in true christianity. In fact, I probably know more about the christian religion than the lot of them put together and I'm not religious. The crap they spout on about as their beliefs comes straight from the depths of hell.

3. A lot of the wingnut 'baggers don't seem to be aware that Ayn Rand
was not only a crappy writer and a nasty human being whose hero was the serial killer William Hickman, but also a stone cold atheist who had no use for Christianity because it called upon people to make sacrifices for the sake of their "inferiors."

4. Finally! I've been saying this for years....
I know most people aren't familiar with the actual tenets of the Lavey's church and his brand of Satanism. They dismissively think it's some cartoonish (which it kind of is) religion about worshiping God's nemesis/foil/fallen angel/whatever. That aspect of it is just a symbolic part of it, but most of it revolves around selfishness, self interest, self motivation, whatever.

Which is why I've always tried pointing out the irony that a political party that most embodies the beliefs of the church of satan, wraps themselves so heavily in the church of Christ.

Good to see someone else point this out for a change.

Ought mail the Tea party those little red church membership cards.
As a complimentary gift.Lulz

Here is a little bit of what crap the CoS yammers about:

1. StratificationThe point on which all the others ultimately rest. There can be no more myth of equality for allit only translates to mediocrity and supports the weak at the expense of the strong. Water must be allowed to seek its own level without interference from apologists for incompetence. No one should be protected from the effects of his own stupidity.

BTW church of satan has stolen their writings from others,the satanic bible was originally by Crowley & ragnar red beard,.The Church of Satan member consider "philosophers" like ayn rand,hitler, leo strauss,Machiavelli neitzchie..as heroes.And I think the teabaggers would love 'em too except for the hostility to christianity these writers have.
The church of Satan's followers are the most obedient authority worshiping herd of conformists I've seen.That's why I gave them hell like they never had,how do I know? heh..I was ex-communicated from the CoS..lol!
The tea party are a bunch of insecure herd animals looking for a parent to disapline them...Just like assemblies of God's herd of sheep.
how do I know?
I got ex-commuticated from AoG too..LOL!
