Pastor disaster

(Not into this group but the 4th track is Pastor of Disaster)
I wasn't going to do a post on this other than the mention in the last post but what the hell. This is at the moment the latest version of a religious balloon boy. What do you bet he makes a deal with Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck to do a road tour?

But what's the expression? A little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing. Let me see. WWJD Mr. Jones? Did Jesus burn the Torah? No. And what's that parable about the "good Samaritan"? And I guess you never got the the story of the "wheat amongst tares". But then that's just off the top of my head from a guy who hasn't picked up the book in many years.
Maybe Mr. Jones who's said he's only read a part of the Quran should spend a little more time reading the book he follows. Then again I guess Jesus doesn't fit into his definition of salvation for you see Jesus surrounded himself with murders, thieves and prostitutes.

He'll get his 15 minutes of fame but we can only wonder at what price. With balloon boy nobody was injured. In Jones' case it may be a different story.

You've been brainwashed by the liberal Bible, which (thank you Jesus) is being rewritten by Phyllis Schafly's son, so we can get rid of the liberal bias.

When the liberal slant has been removed from the new improved Bible, we will learn that: Jesus burned the Torah and hated homosexuals. He also didn't have long hair or that sissy soft facial expression. He was a steely-eyed crew-cutted businessman who wore Brooks Brothers suits. And He had regular business conferences with those moneylenders that he allegedly drove from the temple.

It is really sick what he is doing, now there is another that wants to do it. Not a good thing! Jones wants to talk to Obama. What the hell is it, every time something happens the4y want an audience with Obama to resolve it? WTF?

Tom little do they know that Jesus wasn't the blond haired blue eyed guy they picture. He was after all Jewish.

Jim how else can you get a free beer at the White House?

"Did Jesus burn the Torah?"

I wouldn't think so, since, as you point out, Jesus was a Jew.

As for Pastor Terry Jones, I think it would be helpful if the CIA would send him on an expenses-paid, vacation trip to Ryadh.

Wouldn't it be just awful if someone were to make a map available of the Revs. House. I can't imagine anyone doing that. Perhaps that person could make money doing it. I guess he or she would then be a capitalist. Nawww it would never happen.;)

The Jewish power structure of the day refused to recognize Jesus because He didn't fit their preconceived notions. If He were to return to America (or most anywhere on earth) today he would again be rejected especially by the right wing "Christians". Love the sinner, hate the sin vs Hang em all.
My take on "The Kingdom of Heaven" is more like true communism, which means in ain't ever going to happen on this earth as long as people are involved.
Greed trumps selflessness every time. It is why capitalism works. BUT as Adam Smith points out in Wealth of Nations requires strong government regulation to control it.

I'm back, sort of, setting up a new computer with Win 7 on it, it looks and feels much different but I like it. Won't be any new posts on my blogs until I return from camping.

Anyway, anyone that knows the real facts know that this Jesus was a weird little shit and that there's been a lot of misinformation put out about him. He never wrote a word in his life so it's all hearsay and a lot of it is made up.

But his merry little band made some decent wine. Would have he burned a muslim bible? Considering his limited travels and short life it's not likely that he even knew they existed.

I fully expect a full blown religion war, I just don't know when it's going to happen.

But I fully approve of them burning each others books and killing each other, nice way to reduce the populations and get rid of a bunch of idiots.
