It's clobberin' time!

It's time to smack some Christians! Well....only if they get to upity, so you in California have a job to do and you can add Mormons to the list as well! I still can't believe the intolerance last Tuesday. Thanks for forcing your religion and bigotry on others.... splitters.

So for you're viewing pleasure it's time to take a stand!

Hat tip to Stupid Evil Bastard

On another note, why don't you vote for Brian Switek over at Laelaps. Help him get a nice scholarship to finish out his schooling!

Sorry I've been off-line for a bit helping some friends move. Busy, busy, busy.

Pretty funny how ignorant some people are about Christianity. I know this was probably done to parody the foolishness some people believe about followers of Christ; but sadly some people actually believe this view of Christianity shown in the video. Thank God 10 minutes of research or access to google or a library can do away with this intolerance, but still you have to wonder why such hatred exists.

Hi Akilah,

I lived in CA. I would not want to move back....ever!

The pups have been hugged and are running around like loons:)

Ah... Steve, believe what you like, because to you only YOUR version of Christianity it the 'correct' one. I find it funny that you are of course going the persecution rout. Your religion is the one who PASSED the bill of intolerance. You keep trying to force the views of some 2000 year old goat herders on the rest of us. You forget that the separation of church and state ALSO protects YOU and your religion from others forcing their religion/non religion on you. No one MAKES you have abortions or makes you marry same sex partners. We leave you alone until you start to try and make us think and act like you, something that will never happen. Perhaps if you Christians were as loving and moral as you like to believe you could see the hypocrisy.

We don't hate Christians, just your religion, but we're happy to leave you alone if you leave us alone. It's a free country believe what you like... just keep it to yourselves and everyone will be happy. Frankly from what I've seen and read this video is pretty darn close to reality. Deny what you like but others can see through the lies.

Bet you hugged the wrong puppy. Would you hug the right puppy for me please?

I got to hug the puppy yesterday, she made those little puppy grunting noises and tried to eat my hand. Today when I saw her she was cuddling with T'naasheet.

California disappoints me.

Steve. The video is about separation of church and state. It is not about hating Christians or any other religious group. You're not stupid, you know that. You are well aware that if another religion attempted to get it's tenets codified into law the Christians would pitch a fit. You cannot have it both ways. Why on earth religious people simply don't get the idea of separation of church and state is beyond me. Nobody here hates Christians, we just want their beliefs out of the government. This is not a theocracy.

I'm a bit confused. The video is so off the mark is it making fun of Christians or is it trying to make fun of outlandish false claims to show how silly those who do that are?

How is abortion only a Christian tenant? The Bible says don't steal, so if you don't accept Christianity are you allowed to steal to protect your belief in seperation of Church and State?

What exactly do you have to do to be a President and also be eligable to be a Christian. When asked if he loved Jesus Abe Lincoln answered "When I left Springfield I asked the people to pray for me. I was not a Christian. When I buried my son, the severest trial of my life, I was not a Christian. But when I went to Gettysburg and saw the graves of thousands of our soldiers, I then and there consecrated myself to Christ. Yes, I do love Jesus."

Sorry Abe, because it fits someone else's political agenda your declaration of faith is disqualified.

The founding fathers seperation of Church and State was not meant to "smack those Christians down," otherwise the same government after the Constitution was signed would not have chosen the Bible as the number one book to be taught in schools. Heck the school system purchased hundreds of Bibles a year to put into class rooms, so obviously it wasn't written to keep those unrulely Christian beliefs away from school.

I'm not saying I want Bibles in public schools, just let's not go overboard with trying to falsify history to support some anti-Christian hate agenda.

Can you imagine someone singing a song saying "Smack those Jews down"? Unless this song is a total farce I think the intolerance and misrepresentation is off the charts.

On the plus side it has a nice beat and you can bob your head to it.

Steve, that's just all kinds of stupid.

Stop reading the Christian sites, here is a history for the Public School system:

'Jefferson believed that education should be under the control of the government, free from religious biases, and available to all people irrespective of their status in society. '

Boy that sounds like the opposite of what you just told me.

The point is it doesn't matter WHAT your religion is, in the US you have lots of different religions, but you don't see them trying to force their views on others. If they did, they should also be smacked down. Just like the Mormons who got this bill passed. You don't see me trying to get laws passed that ban religion or force others to think like me. If some Atheists tried that I would oppose it.

Oh, and I'm sure that other cultures and religions had 'Don't steal from others' LONG before your religion was thought up.

And yet it is a historical fact that while president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson was elected the first president of the Washington, D.C., public school board, which used the Bible as a reading text in the classroom. Bibles purchased with government funds.

These aren't Christian sites making things up, these are real people. I recently talked to a ninety year old lady who still had her Bible primer book from her old school house.

I'm not doubting some don't like the Bible or don't want it in the schools, but it is rewriting history to act like the government always interpeted seperation of Church and State in the same manner they do today.

I don't want religion taught in school. Teachers would make it boring. But it would be foolish to ignore our contry's religious tradition. The Pillgrims weren't leaving England because they didn't like the weather.
