Christian video game hopes for mass appeal

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]bluemoontide)

The most disturbing line from the article is this - "It pits "good" Tribulation Forces against "evil" Global Community Peacekeepers led by the anti-Christ."

Well I guess this helps explain Christian support for the war in Iraq, but tell me, did I miss that passage in the Bible that says, "Blessed are the warmongers, for they will be called the Children of God" ?

Why I get the newsmax emails

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]cheap_laugh)

So I can keep tabs:

I received this appeal from wingnut Allen Keys to donate to RANDALL TERRY

TODAY, I will board a plane and fly into the epicenter of one of the most critical and hotly contested campaigns in the nation.

And I'm asking you to join me.

AND... I want to tell you about a new technology being used in this race, that could GUARANTEE victory -- IF you help out!

What technology? the Sftj page doesn't say

I'm talking about the race between nationally known conservative leader Randall Terry, and the ultra left-wing State Senator Jim King.

Both are Republicans -- Randall Terry in heart and soul, Jim King in name only.

Before I say one more word in this urgent letter, I beg you to make a critical gift RIGHT NOW of at least $15 or more to help my good friend Randall Terry crush his liberal opponent in a vital political campaign in Florida</blockquote>

Terry is running against another Republican.

The donation letter has the scary sounding bold faced all caps:


It is actualy a panic driven email. If enough wish, I will post it so some good political practical jokes may be played....

Anti-Christian Zionism

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]scotmoore) Forgive me if this has been posted here before, but I'm curious if anyone has any info as to the authenticity of this:


Excerpt - "Christian Zionism is a modern theological and political movement that
embraces the most extreme ideological positions of Zionism, thereby
becoming detrimental to a just peace within Palestine and Israel. The
Christian Zionist programme provides a worldview where the Gospel is
identified with the ideology of empire, colonialism and militarism. In its
extreme form, it laces an emphasis on apocalyptic events leading to the end
of history rather than living Christ's love and justice today.
We categorically reject Christian Zionist doctrines as false teaching that
corrupts the biblical message of love, justice and reconciliation."

I can't tell if this is just representative of the Episcopal churches in the region.  The information speaks as if it represents all "churches" in the region, which I find mildly difficult to swallow.

What does everyone think?

Rude Punditry

NB - The Rude Pundit has a rather rough turn of phrase and imagery, so he's not for the easily offended. He is, however, one of the bast and most savage critics of BushCo currently writing online.


The Rude One gives us these thoughts today:

' Here's the President yesterday at a campaign dinner for Tennessee Republicans: "We face an enemy that has an ideology; they believe things." You got that? We're not facing a bunch of blank slates lashing out at all tabulas not rasa. They actually believe "things." What sorts of things, you may ask? George W. Bush has the answer: "The best way to describe their ideology is to relate to you the fact that they think the opposite of the way we think...

And what is the ideology we're offering? Sure, sure, it's "hope" and "freedom" and all those gosh-darn-Miss-America's-pretty type words. But Bush lets you know who's in on it and who's out: "The United States of America must understand that freedom is universal, that there is an Almighty, and the great gift of that Almighty to each man and woman in this world is the desire to be free." You get that? The USA "must understand...that there is an Almighty." And that Almighty has, through its great and magical Almightiness, given every little non-almighty one of us a present. So, one might ask, like, does that mean, absent belief in an Almighty (or absent an Almighty altogether), we don't desire freedom? Atheism equals slavery? (And this doesn't even start to get into the clusterfuck of "what Almighty are you talkin' 'bout, Georgie?") '

While you're visiting him, take a look at his recent reports from New Orleans.
