Since The Rapture Didn't Happen...

... seeing as the clues culled from the Bible amounted to a hill of horse manure ...

can we please now ...

STOP ACTING LIKE THE BIBLE IS A PRIMER WHOSE EVERY WORD SHOULD BE LITERALLY APPLIED TO LIFE ON EARTH!

STOP ACTING LIKE IT'S FILLED WITH STRAIGHTFORWARD FACTS THAT CAN BE QUOTED FROM AT WILL IN ORDER TO BEAT PEOPLE DOWN!!!

I.e., cease picking out random passages that supposedly prove that homosexuality is an abomination that needs to be pitied and cured.

Using religion to oppress consenting adults -- that's an abomination!

If you somehow find solace in the bible, then fine -- I'm happy for you.

But please don't act like every word in it needs to be heeded as if it were a memo from above.

I'm not a sinner any more than the apocalypse came on Saturday.

Keep it up and you'll surely go to hell in ... um, according to my own good book, sometime in March 2024.

What? You mean I may not stone the Catfish-eaters? Killjoy.

well the good Reverend has no plans to give away his HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR fortune any time soon. He didn't give it away in May and he ain't givin' it away in October, so I guess ye will still need cash for Heaven. Yea verily honey.....

I would call him a masterful grifter, but it doesn't seem like he has to work very hard to get people to part with buckets of cash.

The Bible is very clear that no one knows the day when Christ Jesus will return...that preacher and his followers were not following God's word which is why I never believed them.

I'm Christian and gay.  :-)

I can't believe the idiots who spent all their money and got into a mountain of debt because they thought the world would end and now they are flat-ass broke. HA.

I heard Rev Camping in an NPR story saying that he miscalculated and the new date is in October. Somebody needs to kick that moron's ass up and down the street a few times. I can't believe the media is still giving him air time.Edit: Well, maybe they shouldn't kick his ass around - I just found out he's 89 years old. Has anyone considered that he might be a little bit confused?

Amen to that Mikey!  I knew an otherwise sensible (mostly) guy who shouted whenever the bible was mentioned, "It is the REVERED WORD of GOD!"  Though smart, he was brainwashed since childhood and couldn't even get this Pablovian response to not go off at the word bible.  I enjoyed showing him the self portrait of Mapplethorpe with a bull whip up his ass (in the Voice!).

We can choose a different book each month that the whole world will live by.

Once I heard it was the Great Pumpkin who was in charge of the Rapture I knew the whole thing would never happen.

I'd say that good quotes from the bible ("Turn the other cheek") should be used, but not the parts that incite people to hate.

This proves that quotes from the bible should be taken with a grain of Lot's wife!
