If religion is nothing more than an advertising agency for a product that doesn’t exist, what does that make these guys?

#119840 by Paul Murray on 12/12: “Seeing as the bible is clear that witches should not be suffered to live….. and all the rest of the psychics and speakers with the dead that infest today’s society….”
Well, the so-called Christian bible was full of sexism as well as racism and homophobia, Paul Murray, but it was also strong on denouncing hypocrites too, uhh.
Your statement not only exhorts a return to any kind of murderous witch-hunt that would entertain you but it is itself an overt example of sexism by definition.
It would be best if society was free of suffering the infestation of malicious people like yourself….. or are you already possessed by the un-dead?

Seeing as the bible is clear that witches should not be suffered to live, what are these candidates going to do about John Edwards, the real Alison DuBoir, and all the rest of the psychics and speakers with the dead that infest today’s society.

I’m sure we all understand that these mental pubescents running for pres. would put their faith in sex if they thought that would get them elected. Or Home Depot. Or shaving cream. After they do get elected and the empire finally implodes, how are they going to explain that to the electorate? Oh, I remember, “it was the will of the Lord. He works in mysterious ways. Praise be to Gawd.”
It’s so depressing that in 2007, many centuries after the age of enlightenment, religion still has a strangle hold on our political system and our government. We’re really doomed!
Too bad religion isn’t a fuel. We’ll never run out of it.

How could we ever believe they wouldn’t lie to us when they lie to themselves? Enough of this religious crap… I’m more worried that Mickey and Minnie Mouse might be an incestuous couple…They’re the only three-fingered mice I’ve ever seen…Any chance Professor Irwin Corey could run for president?
