Tea Baggin for beginners....

Last week on April 15th I was at the dentists office. Nothing major, just a check up. Well, in this town I’m in FOX is on every TV that’s in a gym or restaurant or waiting room. They won’t turn it on MSNBC nor CNN….but only FOX. Yes, this is a small reactionary town that I’m currently in. In fact, the highway bypasses the place. It use to go through the town, but now it just goes past it.

Well, as you well know, it was the “Tea Bag” day. And of course, those there were calling themselves,… Continue

Pray in one hand......

Last night I was surfing the TV. I came across Preacher Rick Warren talking about dealing with being unemployed. Yup, it was chock full of religion. Funny how he never ever mentioned that in this day and age it is a part of life. And since it is a part of today’s life, one must learn how to deal with it.

Praying after you've lost your job may make you feel better, but it won't help you find a job. Trust me on this, I've been there and known people who've been there.

A few years ago… Continue

Boom-years borrowing hits churches

By RACHEL ZOLL, AP Religion Writer Rachel Zoll, Ap Religion Writer – Sat Mar 14, 12:48 pm ET







Metropolitan Baptist Church was bursting out of its home.

From a group of freed slaves in Civil War-era Washington, Metropolitan Baptist had grown into a modern-day megachurch and community service powerhouse. In 2006, construction began on the congregation's dream complex in Largo, Md. — a $30 million campus with a 3,000-seat… Continue

HOME BOY BIBLE POUNDER

Here's a video from a cable (?) born again bible pounder whose a "Home Boy."



So it is just me? Or does he come across as the type of guy who has to take his pants off to think straight?



Is it safe to assume that if ANYTHING is written in a bible then it must be correct? So what if we print our own bible? You can turn a lot of things on its head that way.



King James, of the King James Bible was known as, "The wisest fool in all christiandom." Here's the… Continue

THE ATHEIST'S NIGHTMARE OR SO WE'RE TOLD....snicker snicker...

Having some free time on my hands I decided to waste it surfing the net. So I’ve really gotten into being an atheist lately. Now I’ve been one since I was in the first grade. I was about 6 or 7 at the time so I’m not new at this. And I did try religion when I was in the 3ed grade but it just wasn’t “right” for me.



Now I’ve been exposed to it all my life. Went to a high school run by a Lutheran minister. But he didn’t preach at us. Really he didn’t and he was pretty cool looking back… Continue

IS IT JUST ME OR DOES THIS GUY JUST NOT INTO BRUSHING HIS TEETH?



Okay, this guys a real Koran pounding ass hole. Now, his father was a Mullah, his brothers were Mullah’s. They rallied against Saddam and paid the price. Saddam had them killed (wished he'd done us all a favor and gotten junior too, but well, one can only wish..).



Now this guy is the baby of the family. He went off to study to be a Mullah. He didn’t even finish the first part. He quit. But I guess when your dad is a honcho in a… Continue

Iran: Men vs. women soccer game draws punishment

These guys really don’t get “much” do they. These boys have some really deep seated issues. Sexual repression is so rampant it’s sad. I wonder how the girls ran in the body scarf?



In a way theykind of remind me of the Communists when they took over Russia and made the USSR. You know, morals, social standards, a straight laced environment. Well at least their attempt at it.

DENVER – Fallen evangelical pastor Ted Haggard says he had an "inappropriate relationship" with a young male church volunteer, but it did not involve physical contact.

A women from the mid east whose had enough.....



You mostly likely have seen this on the web. It was sent to me by a friend of the family. She really gives them hell. A much deserved hell to in my view.



I have to agree with her on those in the Middle East using the west's science and technology. If you look at that part of the world, they've not had a major scientific or technological break though in over 1,400 years. Prior to Islam they did. Afterwards, little if… Continue
