Yeah, but can you beat up hookers?

So the "Global Community Peacekeepers" are purportedly the BAD guys, while the forces of TRIBULATION are ostensibly "good"??? }8^O ==== One searing question: Why, oh WHY, do we no longer maintain a COLLISEUM for dealing with lunatic zealots like these? Things were SO much simpler in the Old Empire: panis et circensis with lots and lots of LIONS! ;-)

Oh oh I get it. I'm a bigot for suggesting that Catholics might be a clone army, but Fundies in the lion's den is good clean sport....

I know you're joking...I'm just sayin is all....

Yeah that aspect of the Rapture crowd has always disturbed me as well. Any attempts at global or Middle East peace are viewed as evil. Don't forget that this is Bush's base. The 29-33% who still support his insanity are these folks.

By the way, unfortunately, due to extensive brainwashing I have a detailed understanding of this Rapture/Tribulation shit. If any of you sane people out there have questions about the finer points of this insane doctrine, just ask.

It may well be the most dangerous belief sytem known to man in that it impacts everything from the environment to foreign policy.

Makes the jihad look like a picnic by comparison...

Raping Catholics would be more in the spirit of the game. Plus at the end you get a free conversion.

Robert: Well, I wasn't actually suggesting throwing ALL Fundies (or even a significant number of them) to the lions, just the *particular* "lunatic zealots" responsible for the marketing of this noxious excuse for a would-be "Christian" game. ==== I simply don't *know* all Fundies. So I'd be exceedingly reluctant to ever consider "passing judgment" on them en masse. (But I can think of a few within the *leadership* who'd make excellent additions to the "Mediterranean Meow Mix". Can't we all?)

Speaking of throwing them to lions, Anne Coulter is scheduled to be on Leno Wednesday night. Guess who else is booked?

George Carlin.


I almost feel sorry for her.

Raping Catholics would be more in the spirit of the game. ==== ML: That, for me, was perhaps the most ludicrous notion (of many) I encountered in the first description of that game. So according to the incredibly flakey concept of "Christianity" espoused by the creators of this little gem, members of the Catholic Church -- the *earliest* and *only* organized Christian sect up until the time of Martin Luther -- aren't considered "Christians" at all, (Quite a bizarre "stretch", in my mind!) And as a result, they're considered candidates for "conversion" (or extermination) in the game. Now, how precisely does a Christian "convert" to Christianity?? Talk about "distinctions without a difference" -- amazing!

Robert: Regarding whether you can beat up hookers in the game, I bet you probably can. Hookers, after all, are notoriously Democratic. The "socially acceptable", Republican equivalent is more likely referred to as a professional "Sexual Surrogate". ;-) [P.S. Please pardon the above slip -- I appear to be having an ongoing "identity crisis".]
