Opening Arguments

God only knows

Fort Wayne is often late in getting to the party when it comes to trends and movements, but this time we're in the vanguard as one of the few cities getting a heads-up about the return of Jesus. According to billboards being put up by the group We Can Know here and elsewhere, the savior will return on May 21 of next year. Considering all that must be done in preparation for the Second Coming, five months isn't really much notice, but I guess we're better off than the poor slobs in sideroad America who aren't even getting billboards. Can you imagine the shock? There they'll be, patiently waiting for the Mayan-predicted apocalypse in 2012, and Jesus shows up the year before and tells everybody to start packing.

We are not one of the cities getting the "Good Without God" signs being put on buses by a bunch of atheists, which is probably a good thing. With only five months to go, it wouldn't do to start getting all Humanist and thinking we can live decent lives without divine guidance. I think they did put some of the signs on buses in Bloomington, or at least tried to, which seems sort of pointless. Is there any place in Indiana less in need of ignoring God? I wonder what would happen if one of those buses passed by one of the billboards. A great rip in the fabric of the space-time continuum? 

I suppose now, littlejohn will mock me for my theological ignorance, and Michael will call me out for engaging in shoddy metayphsical reporting just for a cheap laugh. That will annoy me, but they will no doubt be forgiven by someone above my pay grade.

First, we are scheduled to receive a "Good Without God" sign. I don't know why that bothers anyone. Surely you're good without Zeus. What's the difference?
Second, I have an offer: I will pay anyone convinced of Jesus' return, cash on the barrelhead, for their house. I will draw up a contract saying I can't take possession of it until May 22nd, when you will no longer need it. I'll only pay $500, but what will you care? It's easy money, and the house remains yours until you're sitting in Heaven doing whatever they do there. Any takers?
By the way Leo, your theology is just as sophisticated as any I've heard.

Now now. We all know it's hard to do shoddy theological reporting; it's all pretty much made up in the first place, so it's not like there's any facts or logic to muck up.

I expect that you understand that atheists are small minority suffering from an anti-God complex. You might want to join the agnostics between now and May 21, just in case . . .

Just because a lot of people believe in something doesn't make that something true... or any more plausible.

Congratulations, Tim! You are hereby awarded the non sequitur award!
I presume that being in the minority makes you right?
At any rate, you seem to be blissfully unaware that several countries in Europe and Asia are majority atheist/agnostic.
Furthermore, Obama's negatives are now higher than his positives, largely because Democrats feel he isn't liberal enough, and of course, you and your buddies hate black people. Dude, at least get a college degree before sharing your wisdom.

"At any rate, you seem to be blissfully unaware that several countries in Europe and Asia are majority atheist/agnostic."

You wanna name them for us?

"Dude, at least get a college degree before sharing your wisdom."

A college degree has absolutely nothing to do with wisdom.

While you're at it Littlejohn,

"and of course, you and your buddies hate black people."

You wanna tell me what you base that accusation upon?

Tue, 12/07/2010 - 1:01pm

You could go back to the "Zero Tolerance" thread for that.

(I'd put a direct link, but apparently Leo isn't allowing links in comments - even to his own blog - anymore.)

AKA The Larry Morris (and his sycophant Tim Zank) "We're Afraid of Brown People with a Different Religion" show.

And good job on the non-sequitur there, Tim. Unless you're one of those whackjobs that really thinks Obama is a "secret Muslim." I suppose it's vaguely related, if you're that out there.

Man, why drag me into your sick justification ? How dare you accuse me of something so stupid as being a race monger - if you knew anything about where or how I grew up, what I did along the way, and who my friends were now, you certainly couldn't think that. Obama is an ass because he's stupid, black people don't have any more corner on that market than you do. I've hated several white presidents and certain stupid, self-righteous bike riders much more than him. Do us all a favor and ride into a bus at your first opportunity,

Saying that the perpetrators of 9/11 were following a way of life that results in atrocities equates to hating all Muslim people? Are you trying to be a condescending horse's ass, or does it just come naturally>

Wed, 12/08/2010 - 12:28pm

Do you have an inability to read the entire statement, Leo?

Or are you just mad you can't really defend what your brother has said?

Larry Morris
Wed, 12/08/2010 - 1:11pm

No, Leo can read, Michael. That, also, has nothing to do with you just being an ignorant ass, ...

Wed, 12/08/2010 - 1:51pm

So you don't hate the Muslim religion, or its people... you just think it's not really a religion, and that all people who follow that religion should be lumped together (and denied freedoms, re: the original Zero Tolerance thread) just... because.

Oh, I think the ignorance is pretty plain to see there, Larry.
