More unbelievable inanity

Recommended Posts

Our 24-year-old car's transmission died today. My wife was working, and a co-worker offered to give us a ride home.

 

When my wife said it was a good thing her co-worker was there to drive us, and how convenient it was that they lived near us, the co-worker said:

 

"God totally made it so that we could find out how close we live to each other!"

 

She then proceeded to tell a story about how her father was trying to sell their house, but had no takers. Neighbors were unchurched people, uninterested in religion. The neighbor man was supposedly into "satanic-ness" (her word). Then, suddenly, one day the neighbor decided he wanted to learn all about Jesus. This woman's father "led him to the Lord".

 

A couple of weeks later, the neighbor man was driving his delivery truck and had a heart attack and crashed and was killed.

 

According to her, the Lord must have thought, "you know me as personal savior, so I'll take you home so you're not corrupted by the world".

 

So, this "Lord" is breaking down the car of two self-employed people with children to feed, and he's giving lethal heart attacks and car crashes to his "true believers".

 

How the fuck do people actually accept that kind of bullshit?

 

I guess when you accept that this god's special plans include the rape of children and the murder of millions, this other shit goes down like candy.

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...



You appear to be surrounded by religious nutters.  You have my sympathies.  You also have choices.

Blasphemous Rumours
Depeche Mode


Girl of sixteen
Whole life ahead of her
Slashed her wrists 
Bored with life
Didn't succeed 
Thank the Lord
For small mercies

Fighting back the tears
Mother reads the note again
Sixteen candles burn in her mind
She takes the blame
It's always the same
She goes down on her knees
And prays

I don't want to start 
Any blasphemous rumors
But I think that God's 
Got a sick sense of humor 
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

I don't want to start 
Any blasphemous rumors
But I think that God's 
Got a sick sense of humor 
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

Girl of eighteen
Fell in love with everything
Found new life in Jesus Christ
Hit by a car 
Ended up
On a life support machine

Summer's day 
As she passed away
Birds were singing 
In the summer's sky
Then came the rain
And once again
A tear fell
From her mother's eye

I don't want to start 
Any blasphemous rumors
But I think that God's 
Got a sick sense of humor 
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

I don't want to start 
Any blasphemous rumors
But I think that God's 
Got a sick sense of humor 
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

I don't want to start 
Any blasphemous rumors
But I think that God's 
Got a sick sense of humor 
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

I don't want to start 
Any blasphemous rumors
But I think that God's 
Got a sick sense of humor 
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

I don't want to start 
Any blasphemous rumors
But I think that God's 
Got a sick sense of humor 
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing
