I love these guys


There’s one of these “King James Believing” Baptist churches near my house. Apparently, the idea is that the KJV — translated, mind you, fifteen centuries or so after the New Testament under the authority of a semi-Catholic monarch — is the unerring Word of God. I don’t think most of the others go to the extremes of saying that the other Bibles should be burned, but given their premises, it’s not too surprising. The ultimate expression of a certain strain of Baptism is one guy holding a flamethrower shaped like a Bible.

Contemporary Christian music really is a tool of the Devil, though.

Roy Moore makes it official, he’s running for Alabama governor – Breaking News from The Birmingham News –

Well, this should be amusing. Don’t count him out. It’s looking like a crowded primary on the Republican side, and he could very easily finish first in a four- or five-way race with a core of 35 percent of the GOP made up of crazies. He’d have to win the runoff, but weird things happen in runoffs, and it would be about getting out the vote.

So sorry…
