CBS News covers the Rational Response Squad

Is it all atheists that are in the cult? Just the ones that know the bible? Just the ones that speak up against the bible? I might never understand the media, but I certainly like using them.

As I posted in the youtube comments to someone else:
"Don't forget they chew the body of Christ, drink the blood of christ, rub ashes on their forehead, dip newborns in holy water, and priests wear skirts. There isn't a single argument from Christians that isn't a projection of their own inadequacies, calling us a cult is a sign that they know they themselves are in a cult."

Kinda fucked up how they had

Kinda fucked up how they had that "The Cult" sign up in the background. Unless they meant Christianity.

"...most disturbingly, they

"...most disturbingly, they target children..."

How is that not a media bias? Do they use "disturbing" to describe religious upbringing? 

There are no theists on operating tables.

It's funny that the newsguy

It's funny that the newsguy had to point out that we don't worship Satan.  Apparently it's quite common to equate us with devil worshippers like Christians did with the Jews for so many years (and still do with Muslims).

I don't know why the self-proclaimed pastor with 6,000 sheep had to fear the RRS.  No doubt he's raking in the cash with his tax-exempt business.  Since he claimed his religion is logical, rational and holds up to skepticism he should have no problem flying Brian Sapient out to his compound for a debate.

What the fuck was with "The Cult" written in the background? Was I missing that part of the story?

Hey Brian, do you know how

Hey Brian, do you know how to get in touch with Farris?  When I start broadcasting on Stickam I'm gonna need content, ya know, and if he's not far from me, I'm sure he can help.  At any rate, my goal for starting the Michigan chapter of RRS will be to solidify our community here as much as possible, and he could help in that, if he's willing. 

The darkness of godlessness lets wisdom shine.

I thought it was great how

I thought it was great how that pastor basically contradicted the Gospel right there on tape.  Hey Reverend, what part of "never" don't you understand?

That graphic saying "The Cult" was bullshit.

Yet another case of folks

Yet another case of folks that shouldn't be calling themselves "reporters" because they are not presenting an unbiased view.

Look at the context of the verse, though. Christ was talking to the religious leaders who were challenging him because he cast out a demon. The exorcists of that day exorcised the demons by letting loose a greater demon that they believed they controlled. They claimed he was using a demon to cast them out. What he simply said was that if you said he was of satan and that he used satan to cast out satan from someone, then you were blashpeming.

 So really, He didn't contradict the Gospel.
