Quote# 15103

I've come to believe that God may be using America's massive debt as part of His end-time plan. The Bible tells us that during the tribulation, Europe will be the main actor on the world stage. An economic meltdown in the U.S. would explain our nation's absence from prophecy.

The rapture could be what triggers this collapse. America has the highest percentage of Christians than any other nation on earth. The loss of such a large portion of the population during the rapture would cause this nation to collapse into chaos.

The bible does not mention Europe, especially not in Revelations. It's a bleeding miracle it even bothers to mention the Romans in the New Testament at all, and that was only because they were occupying Judea at the time and the fact that most of the New Testament was written up to a century after the fact AND was written in what we now know to be Europe!

Would you like a clue why America was not mentioned in the bible? It's the same reason Australia wasn't - the authors pretending to write for an onmipotent being didn't have a clue they existed. Much like apes are not mentioned in the bible. Not a clue! Nice omnipotent God you've got there!

Damn you beat me to it julian.
Oh and todd you are a dumbass. This is true fundie justification. Assume something then look for ways to prove it.

\"America has the highest percentage of Christians than any other nation on earth\"

What about the Vatican, idiot?

Seriously, are human beings responsible for anything, or is it all God's plan or Satan's fault?

Translation: I've run up all my credit cards so if the Rapture doesn't come soon I'm screwed.

\"The loss of such a large portion of the population during the rapture would cause this nation to collapse into chaos\"

Um, no. The 'loss' of thousands of fundies would be the best thing to ever happen to the United States.

Well the idea that bush is going to bring about an apoclypse or that he's the anti-christ is a feasible notion if you believe in all of that, but what you're really seeing is incompetence by the govt. and insanity shown by idiots on rapture ready.

I laughed. But you forgot that they are Catholics, not Real Christians™.

Where the fuck do you get this crap?!?! Europe? The main actor on the End Time stage? Has somebody been writing in your Bible again?

Yet another reason to keep fundies out of politics.

Or America's absence from the \"prophecy\" could be because the United States had not yet been founded and the North American continent completely unknown to the scam artists who were making this shit up in the first place.

Which is more likely...? If you can't figure that out, I will introduce you to my friend Occam. Maybe he will loan you his razor.

America does not have the \"highest percentage of Christians\" in the world, you twit. Both Spain and Italy have a much higher percentage, to name just 2. There are more, can you figure them out?

If you are going to talk out of your ass, at least check your facts, first.

Wow, a conservative that actually mentions the national debt. Who would have thought.

Ireland and Vatican City certainly have America beat percentage wise, probably a good chunk of the rest of Europe too, not to mention any number of Latin American countries...

rlrr, the way you said what you said is contradictory

You're wrong on some many counts. In fact, the only thing you got right was your first sentence in which you state that you believe this nonsense. I have to believe that to be true.

Well, another alternative bizarro universe. One, America is not the most active Christian country ACCORDING TO STATISTICS and, besides, where in the Earth does the Bible mentions Europe?, where is the debt they talk about, as if it were a banana republic?. Culchiness and etnocentricism, so Southern stupidity!!!

Bad news: If the US economy collapses, the world's economy will follow shortly after.

America has the highest percentage of Christians than any other nation on earth.

You have to remember that fundie Baptists have unilaterally redefined the word \"Christian\" to mean \"Baptist\".

Or maybe George W. Fucktard and friends are busy screwing you, and the rest of us, up the asses while you beg for more and cry out that Jesus will save you, when you could be doing something about it yourself.

Apathy in the name of religion is sickening beyond belief.

Just remember, next week, the URL to that link will change, so that it point the the new weekly rant... so it'll have to be changed here, too.
