When does Christianity finally reach the breaking point?

It seems that, as Christian fundamentalists become more and more entrenched, they should eventually reach a breaking point. Here is one place where they are getting close:

“E Pluribus Unum” irks congressional conservatives

The culture wars have a new battlefield, thanks to a letter this week from the Congressional Prayer Caucus to President Obama. To the religious right, the motto “E Pluribus Unum,” which has been part of the fabric of American democracy since it was emblazened on the national seal in 1782, has become a controversial, anti-God statement.

And another:

Enraptured by the Second Coming

From her Subaru, a car painted as white as the fourth horse of Revelation, Allison Warden proclaims that Jesus shall return May 21….

If you’re on the left-behind list, get ready for some real disappointment. On Oct. 21, five months after the believers vanish into the sky, the entire planet will be engulfed in the cleansing fires of heaven.

Of course nothing will happen on May 21. Her belief is a type of insanity.

Why is a person who is afflicted with this level of insanity able to get media coverage? Because there are millions of others who are just as insane.

If you are a casual Christian who is tired of the insanity, try this – It will help you break free: GodIsImaginary.com

    On the Wash Post article. They fail to mention this woman is a follower of Harold Camping. (Typical of the piss poor coverage in papers these days is they miss the big picture interesting thing.) He is the guy who cooked up May 21st. He is one of my favorite xtians. He has a wonderful radio show I used to catch when I lived in the Bay Area. It is nationwide. Camping is huge.

    I do think May 21st is one helluva day for a party. Cheers.

    The praying filth in Congress- that is an enormous problem. It is disgusting. We can imprison priests for molesting boys. Why can’t we imprison aforementioned congressmen for molesting the country? I wish there were a hell. This garbage could rot in torture with Jerry Falwell for eternity.

    Good article. Obama does like to refer to the DI concerning “our “inalienable rights” but never from whom Jefferson states these rights come from. The loony lefties have myopia when it comes to prayer/God/congress/faith/SCOTUS/POTUS which is intertwined in our early history by our founding fathers. It is without question but the revisionist like to play pretend with history. I hope the left never finds out how Jefferson detested Muslims!

    Pelosi went on some rant about “The Word” and faith last year and almost burst a blood vessel attempting to avoid the G-word. We have some serious wackos on the left.

    I did see the Pelosi interview. She looked constipated and I thought her face would crack at any moment.

    Anyone looking to be taken seriously on the public forum should avoid the word god like the plague; exposing yourself or your countrymen as fundamental, or even light theists is asking to be taken away from respectful intellectual debate and should be considered treason. The author of the letter headlined scolding Mr. Obama for granting dignity to the American people by keeping religion hidden exorcised little more maturity than an ape; this is the kind of representation we as a society must and do always denounce as crazy and unrepresentative of we the people.

    Sure AT, which is why no politician seriously contending claims to be atheist. Atheist also tend to hide the fact when it might hinder their business. But you claim it is a badge of honor!
    You have another whopper to share?

    ROTFL!

    I’m glad we have found common ground.

    The reason some people dont get answer to prayer is because they dont have enough faith. God is not a genie in a bottle , you approach Him with reverence , awe and a healthy dose of fear , something this atheist has no clue about because his very nature is to approach from a point of skepticism and disregard. im a former atheist and have accepted Christ as saviour….yes go ahead and rant , been there done that blah blah blah

    “The reason some people dont get answer to prayer is because they dont have enough faith.”

    Some? The reason why “no one” gets an answer to prayer is because when people think they do get an answer, it is because of random luck. Most people don’t get their prayers answered because they think god works in mysterious ways, when in reality there is no god to answer the prayers. The ones that people think do get answered happened to be because what they prayed for they were going to get by random chance luck or because of their own decision making, that is all.

    “im a former atheist and have accepted Christ as saviour”

    Yeah, well, I am a former believer that woke up to reality. What have we been saved from? Are bad things still happening? Yes. Is that any different than before Christ supposedly saved “us”? No.

    I have received many answers. Can you prove this is random luck?
