Please invade my local newspaper's religion forum

The Shreveport Times has a religion forum and since I'm in the South, you can imagine the general sentiment. For background, The Shreveport Times is a Gannett Publication.

I've posted several things regarding their bigoted view of homosexuality, but you guys may have fun making them look stupid.

I went ahead and made fun of them today. I get so depressed when I read those forums.

...and you live there? I'm just trying to imagine a place in England having a forum like that... and can't.

When I get a mo I'll see if I can goad anyone on there. I'm feeling generally goady today. Goad. Goad.

No way, no way! That can't be real, can it?

Makes me think of a comedy sketch I once saw...
Picture the scene - Jesus has come back to earth (maybe to do some shopping, can't remember why).

Woman wearing a cross around her neck sees him and asks for his autograph. He takes the pen and is happily chit chatting...

J: Hang on, what's that around your neck?
W: It's your holy symbol Oh lord
J: You're fucking kidding me - I died on that thing!
W: That's why your symbol is on all of our churches, as lovely necklaces, badges, posters - the works
J: You've never heard of tact then? If your friend got killed in a plane crash, would you send the family a condolence card with a flaming plane on the front and send plane shaped flowers to the funeral? You people are sick!

I visited shreveport once when I was 14.. spent most of my time fishing.

granted, that has absolutely nothing to do with this thread.

though, as far as things go with the south/midwest, last march I traveled from Buffalo, NY to San Diego, CA by way of automobile. Once you get past Cleveland, things start to get scary. However, Missouri was a fairly interesting place (my first experience in the state was at the age of 13, and oddly enough it was for a religious oriented trip, and I just didn't notice these kinds of things back then). It was not uncommon to see a porn shop accross the street or next to a church. If not a full fledged shop, at least a billboard. I counted several places like this along the interstate (can't remember which one, though it goes from around st. louis down into oklahoma). I just found this to be rather odd.

Then there was the advertised "Largest cross in the western hemisphere" on I-40 in texas. It was in the middle of nowhere, and had a couple people standing around it just staring up.

Yeah, so this whole post had nothing to do with the thread, but well.. I'm not quite sane today.

"Also, don't forget the poop and urine eating"

I almost fell out of my chair laughing when I read that. I love that you just threw that in as an afterthought! Laughing out loud

Woah. Dude, seriously, woah.

I feel compelled to paste something from the first post because it is so ludicrous - unbelieveable that this person was the Attorney General - er, I mean scary. Really really really scary.

"People are always asking me (Cal Thomas) if there are good leaders in Washington. There are. [snip] One such good person is Attorney General John Ashcroft. I had the pleasure of interviewing him again this week for a column I'm writing. During the interview, Ashcroft said something so profound, I wanted to share it with you. The attorney general of the United States said:

"Islam is a religion in which God requires you to send your son to die for him." "Christianity is a faith in which God sent his Son to die for you."

:shock: :shock: :shock:

"Religion is like a badly written contract - most people don't read most (much less all) of it, believe what the other party says, and execute with the best of intentions and naivety."

- Me

Shreveport is the pits. I drive through there on a regular basis and the interstate there and the adjoining highways are a huge, mis-marked mess. The only place I loathe more is Jackson, MS.

For some reason this reminds me of the last sunday school class I attended. Right after I turned 14 (and was pretty much a closet atheist at this point) I was moved into the next sunday school class up (at an AoG church mind you). Now the previous class had been a bunch of stupid crap, occasionally about how evolution was a lie, or ways we can avoid temptation and blah blah blah. This new class began to deal with more mature subject matter, what did we discuss? Why curses! Yes, all the wonderful curses that god has put on our lives, how we can be cursed by god for something our grandparents did. At this point I decided I couldn't take it anymore and had to tell my mother that I wasn't going to be joining her on sunday mornings.

Interesting... I hadn't even checked back in a few days. I've noticed that the person "kdprecious" is responsible for probably half the posts in that forum.

I wouldn't pay attention to kdprecious. He types his forum post titles in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS because he thinks people will pay more attention then. In reality, it just lets me know which ones not to read since I know they come from him.
