Frepers think the most important thing to send to Tsunami victims are
BIBLES?!?!?!?!!!

Do you mind if I tell this. Hell tell me if I was in the wrong.


I kid you not. Some fundie with a Bush/Chaney shirt on stopped me and asked me to buy a bible to send to those who survived the Tsunami so that they could see the error of their ways and follow the truth of the lord!


I went off I said : "Are you fuckin nuts! Do you think Christians did not die in that tradgy? You are unbelievable! Maybe what those people need are your sympathy and comfort. Maybe what you need to do as well as all your freeper/fundie friends is to take a fuckin reality check! People of all religions suffered in that event AND maybe if you would stop thinking that you are holier than thou fuckin attitude you might see that your god might be trying to teach a different lesson than BELIEVE IN ME!!! Maybe YOUR God is trying to get all groups of different religions to come together and help one another and allow people to see that even though they come from different ideas and beliefs that just maybe you have some things in common such as respect for human life and heart--"!

Cut off by the freeper/fundie: "Anyone who doesn't believe in the Lord Jesus Christ is not worth my respect.-"

I said: "And this is why our world is in half the bullshit it is in! Your lord Jesus Christ once said whoever feeds and clothes a stranger is feeding and clothing me! Your lord Jesus Christ once said render unto Cesar that is Cease--so take a small example from that saying and allow others to have their belief but render unto your god the sacrifice and time you give to help others of different religions and just maybe you'd find your God rewards you for those such deeds!

I then added: You know what the hell are you going to do when you go up to heaven -if you are lucky enough-and find out that YOUR God was actually the God of all religions that he created all these religions to make you learn his greatest lesson--respect and love for all people no matter what they look like or how they believe.

I walked away before I punched him but his mouth was frozen in a open position and he lost all color in his face.

1. Typical right wing logic
No job, no food, no education, because bibles are all you need. They do the same thing here.

4. Congratulations...
For not punching him... and not spitting on him (I think I might have).... for not encouraging some dog to pee on his leg... for not pouring sugar into his gas tank...

AND, for pointing out the error of HIS ways.

May he see The Light...

27. The sugar in the gas tank thing is an urban legend. Sugar won't
dissolve in gas, worst case is it clogs the fuel filter. Annoying but not destructive. The OP should be congratulated for not pouring bleach into his engine oil filler, though.

6. Great answer!
I especially liked this part:

I then added: You know what the hell are you going to do when you go up to heaven -if you are lucky enough-and find out that YOUR God was actually the God of all religions that he created all these religions to make you learn his greatest lesson--respect and love for all people no matter what they look like or how they believe.

the funniest part is that they are so "righteous", when in fact they're just small minded, mean little people.

12. You should have told him to send them condoms.
That way there wouldn't be so many future terrorists among the populace.

Talk about conflicting ideas - contraception for terrorists. His tiny little brain might have exploded.

14. Mabye they can use them
to get their cooking fires going. That's the only use bibles would be to most of those people.

They already have a religion, thank you very much.

15. I heard a local minister is actually saying "No Christians died."
Unbelievable! The first word out of my mouth was "Bullshit."

The most disturbing fact to me is that this minister would make such a statement so his parishioners believe it. How terrible to bring up Religion in the face of such a tragedy!

And how do these people believe this? There were missionaries in the area, there were lots and lots of Scandinavians (aren't Lutherans Christians?), not to mention the Americans and other foreigners who are still missing.

After I heard this I realized what we are up against in trying to get the other part of the population to see the lies spewed by this Administration . . . :cry:

17. Who gives a rats ass about what religion they were?
The bottom line is that there are hundreds of thousands of PEOPLE dead. God, or Allah, or Buddha or whatever deity one worships didn't spare anyone because of their religious beliefs. This minister sounds like just another deluded fundie to me. One who thinks that his version of God will save him from anything.

19. The Fundie fool is merely the Christian counterpart
of all the fundamentalist extremist wackos who, strangely enough, flew a few planes into a few builings a few years ago. Faith is all well and good, but when they try to ram it down other peoples' throats they cross the line.

""Anyone who doesn't believe in the Lord Jesus Christ is not worth my respect." - is that idiot for real ???? Maybe he'd better go live in some gated community where he'll be safe.......

20. I was certain that you were going to say
warm coats, flannel shirts, and the like. Then I read bibles and thought oh yeah that would be high on their list, stupid people.

22. Might be a good time to review the parable of the Good Samaritan
Who is our neighbor? According to the fundies, everyone who is already Christian, but real Christian, rightwing, fundamentalist.

Everyone else in trouble can read Biblical passages about food and water and shelter until they die and go to hell.

24. Next time a hurricane hits the Gulf coast...
How about we send bibles instead of the National Guard?

No? Don't think that would go over well?

25. That is so ignorant of that freeper
I bet he doesn't know that northern Sumatra and southern India have large Christian minorities.

And his attitude would be appalling no matter what belief system the victims followed. Jesus healed pagans and Samaritans (heretics from the point of view of the mainstream Judaism of the time) with no preconditions.
