I sure hope so. Too scary not to be.

"We are just another group of republicans, with just another republican website with just another republican forum.

The difference is that we say exactly what we mean. Other conservative groups try to look "centrist" and "politically correct". A lot of republicans say "I was just joking" when someone gets all politically correct on them. (They weren't, they just know how to make PC morons shut up.) There is no self-censorship in Landover Baptist. The moderators in this forum believe in freedom of speech (for republicans), and when they do edit something they at least let people know that they did. This is different from other forums.

True Christians( tm ) have total dominance of both houses of Congress, the Senate, White House, and most governorships. We're a heartbeat away from dominating the Supreme Court. In November 2006 we'll gain so much power in Congress and the Senate that we will be able to rewrite the constitution to say whatever we want (instead of just ignoring it as we do currently.) We are supported by the majority of the army, police officers, and other people who have guns and know how to use them. And we did not gain all this power by "just kidding".

The president of the United States of America (that's the country with all the nuclear bombs) hears the voice of God on a regular basis: "God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East..."

It is. Check out the email section, though.
The shocked responses of mostly illiterate "real" Christians (as opposed to True Christians(TM)) are as hilarious as the actual content.

7. Yes it is. Quite funny in a scary way.
Have you checked out whitehouse.org? Whitehouse.com is a porn site, but the org one is another funny parody one.

8. Very definitely a parody. Witness:
"Where the Worthwhile Worship"

"Unsaved Welcome As Jesus Commanded"

Funny stuff.

10. Southern Poverty Law Center reports on sites with these kinds of views
So if this is a parody site, there are plenty of others who hold these ideas seriously.

Here are some of their posts exposing 9/11 conspiracies: http://www.publiceye.org/conspire/conspiracism-911.html

General conspiracy theories, including the idea that the Tsunami was a punishment for homosexuality and other sins: http://www.splcenter.org/intel/intelreport/article.jsp?...
