Some Quotes From The Land of Crazy

So I'm listening to a podcast on Freemasonry called X-Oriente. He was talking a bit about fundamentalism and its dangers. He had some quotes from the nutters that claim to represent Christianity.

Pat Robertson said that feminism is a "socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians". Look, normally, I'm a libertarian about this sort of thing, but this guy says such incendiary things and so many people follow him that I sometimes wonder if a rational society really ought to think about getting this guy on meds and/or therapy and/or locked up.

The host of X-Oriente also quoted Randall Terry:

"Our goal is a Christian nation. ... We have a biblical duty, we are called by God to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism. ... Theocracy means God rules. I've got a hot flash. God rules." In that same speech, Terry also stated that "If a Christian voted for [former President Bill] Clinton, he sinned against God. It's that simple."

Creepy and funny at the same time. Replace "Christian" with "Muslim" and this guy sounds like the most radical of ayatollahs. Here we are supposedly spreading "freedom and democracy" in places such as Iraq, meanwhile, we have the religious right cuddling up to guys like this. Yeah, that makes sooooo much sense. Also, if you are Christian you have to vote Republican, but the non-Christians can vote for whoever, and not sin against God? Or are they already such a lost cause that it doesn't matter? Besides, Clinton was also a Christian!

The X-Oriente host then went on to talk about how similar some of the fundies that we are supposedly at war with and the ones right here in this country. A pretty good show; if Freemasons have a tendency to be as reasonable as this guy, I just might be interested...

I wonder if it ever dawns on these blokes that the so-called bible is "human written".

If there's one good thing about 911, it's that religion has taken a black eye as a result.
