no future (jesus wants you for a sunbeam (literally)) [Sep. 21st, 2006|11:52 pm]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |jerry goldsmith - alien soundtrack (rrf bootleg)]

apparently, 59% of americans believe in the events predicted in revelations (sounds a tad high) and without a hint of irony, raptureready.com has a nice little quiz on its front page:
'check your spiritual health.'

you are dangerously deluded. please seek professional help immediately.
would be a reasonable answer to those who take these interpretations of translations of transcriptions of ancient hallucinations seriously.
unfortunately, these people vote.

i bet a lot of endtimers were creaming their pants when israel attacked lebanon.
'here we go kids! heaven is near!'

and while it would be hard to argue that the world isn't in a hell of a mess,
and isn't run by arrogant,shortsighted, power crazed shysters,
to actively seek the end of the world, and to give practical support
to anyone who looks like they might be fulfilling the lovely, bloodcurdling apocalyse,
is terrorism isn't it?

a gitmo for dangerous christian fruitcakes anyone? arrest the pope now!

...even 'the huff' is worried...

That spiritual health quiz is a tad skewed. Either you're judeo-christian or you're not. There isn't even a middle ground for a pagan like yours truly.

To them, I'm "agnostic" just because I believe in a Deity who is not judeo-christian! When asked why, I selected "because the bible has been corrupted". I got this lecture about where the "genuine" bible is and who has it.

There is no middle ground in evangelical christianity. Either you are or you're not.
