TO MR PULLIAM-everyone has the right to be fanatical about anything I guess. But in this world we live in where there is so much evil and garbage in the people who are given power it amuses me why you get yourself so upset about a small church who have their own viewpoints on life. the real funny thing is to hear idiots like HOWARD STERN AND HIS MORONIC CREW bantered with them. If you really want someone to take a stand that they are better then another why reach into the sewers.
To DANTHEMAN: I am delighted you find amusement in my considered disregard for a group of haters who cloak themselves under the banner of Christianity. The notion that I "get [my]self so upset" is a construct strictly of your own making, however. I clearly see them as haters...a "group" of haters. If I'm ever fanatical about anything it's when someone exaggerates statements I make into hyperbole to serve their own ends.
ZAP B thesis is as common as the common cold and it is one of wisdom.So much of these things involve around the subconscious mind reacting against the conscious mind and vice versa. Why do we have such deep emotions, love and hate with so many issues and things in our life? The trouble with so many comments, is words can't describe so many truths in our existence, it's limited and then to add injury to insult with our words we don't even know if the words we use are proper to be used with the subjects at hand. To hate is to love, to love is to hate. Would the word apathy be more appropriate if that is what some of you are calling this small group of people living in a world so corrupt and mix up only perhaps the great gods of the universe could get things straighten out, so that decent people can even live in it The large is so wrong and when it is, what can we expect from the small.
There are tons of examples of people who claim to want to advance certain principles or an ideology and then act in such a way as to undermine their own cause. We tend to want to call it a false flag when the people doing it veer too closely to our own beliefs. Its like Muslims who say that it was Jews who committed 9-11. From their point of view, they can't conceive that a Muslim could do something so damaging to their religion so they scapegoat. Or the belief that protesters who break windows must be government provokateurs because they're underminding their own cause. Unfortunately, there are no shortages of fanatics who are self-aggrandizing but don't recognize it and believe themselves to be acting from elevated tactics and principles. This particular group is an ugly reminder of that.
