Yup. Going to straight to Hell.

I'll save you room in The Handbasket!

Not. Bloody. Funny.

This is far too serious a problem to poke fun at it and belittle it like this.

Scientests have had a hard enough flaming time trying to get people to take it seriously, and get people to actually damn well do something about it... for irresponsible idiots to ruin it all for the sake of a cheap laugh!

And you darn well know that the science behind global warming is sound... just people do not want to believe it because it would mean an end to their comfortable, greedy, oil-fuelled way of life.

Just mocking us on the other side of the debate without addressing anything substantive is a low blow and childish.

That is not only hilarious, it is an interesting viewpoint on human beliefs.

Of course some will say it's OK to joke about YOUR fundamental beliefs, but certainly not MY beliefs. For my beliefs are serious and correct. Whereas yours - well, yours are just false religion.

As I see it, nothing is so serious that you can't have a little fun with it.

And God (or the Diety of YOUR choice) help us the day we stop laughing at ourselves!

That is the day we are all going to Hell in that Handbasket!

Amen. (Or insert your own belief compliant comment here).

Laughing at ourselves yes... I'd be the first in the cue there.

Having the piss taken by someone who's intent is to mock and deride us because they can't or won't argue against in coherant fashion... entirely different matter. Differance being laughing with, and laughing at.

Like I said. Not funny.

Welcome to my world! Do you have any idea how frustrating it is for a committed Christian to listen to all the blathering that comes from all the damn sides? Those twits give all the rest of us a bad name! They are the ones who make the world turn away from us yelling "Unclean! Unclean!"

I know that you understand, I really do! But I have also learned not to take those twits seriously. I have learned to ignore them and continue to live my life following as best I can in Jesus' footprints. I think you need to do the same with your belief.

You need to ignore all these fools and be a nobler, better person than they are! You need to be the one to set the example no matter how hard that is! You need to be the one to tilt against windmills and spit into the wind! You need to be the one to proclaim and live your beliefs in the hope that you will touch at least one life for the better.

That's just my opinion, of course! (-:

Under the circumstances, I'll say an Amen to that!
[it'd normally be a So mote it be].

and yeah, I know you're a true Christian, and while I don't walk your path, I can respect your choice. Because as long as your true to your way, then all paths lead to the same Universal Spirit.

As for the rest, I'm trying to walk my path the best I know how.

I'm not going to hate you, but I'm also not going to waste any more time reading the thoughts of anyone who is as far to the right as that author appears to be.

From what I did read in other articles he's posted his current philosophy seems to be "Left = Bad/Evil - Conservative = Good/Moral". That kind of thinking annoys the hell out of me.

And yes, I would feel the same way even if you turned it around and presented a pundit spouting exactly the opposite.
