I wish that guy knew how much of an butt he sounds like to me. If people like him were common in high government positions, I think the Holy Inquisition would be seriously reconsidered.

that'd be sweet, cram all of the bible belt into one tiny little state.  

no longer would you hear about students being suspended for wearing mariyln manson t-shirts, or "practising witchcraft"

Okay, adaptation of a joke time.......

A jew, a christian and a wiccan are walking along a beach. They find an old lamp washed up. The jew picks it up, gives it a rub, and the obligatory genie appears.

The genie says to the three "ok, I usually do the three wishes thing here, but since there's three of you, I'll give you one wish each.

The jew asks first, "I want enough money to buy whatever I want for the rest of my life."
The genie says "fine, that's an easy one." claps his hands and the jew dissapears off to his new life of wealth.

The christian goes next, "Well, I don't really believe in genies, but I'll just make believe your an angel of the lord here to grant my humble wishes. Right, I want all the christians of America to be able to live in our own piece of heaven on earth, our own nation on an island away from all the hethens, the sin and corruption of the rest of the world, and I want a 1500 foot wall built around this island so we'll all be safe inside, and no sinners can get in with their satanic ways."
The genie says, "done", claps his hands and the christian dissapears off to his new island paradise.

"And what about you?" the genie asks the wiccan.
The wiccan says "tell me more about this island the christian wanted."
"Well," the genie says, "It's a large island just of the coast of America, it now houses America's entire population of christians, and it has an impenetrable 1500 foot wall right around the island. Nothing can get in and nothing can get out."

The wiccan thinks for a second then says, "ok, fill it with water."

Now this is very interesting James!!!. Lets just assume that I had told the same joke about gays, I believe that there would have been an eruption of protest, but you tell it of Christians, and it only gets a laugh. Dont misunderstand me, but I do find your "joke" interesting.
Even if Christians were to leave society so to speak, and keep to themselves, there would still be people who would want their blood. Seperation is not enough ......  "ethnic" or rather religious cleansening is needed. You yourself might ofcourse claim that these are not your views, it was only a joke, but I still find it significant. How about we call the island "Waco"!!!!!

Think about it.

Take no offence Mustardseed, I still love you. [Smiley]

If jokes all had to be politically/sociologically/ethnically correct, they just wouldn't be funny! [xx(]

I have no dislike of christians. Never have. A dear friend and man I would call a soul-mate is quite devoted to his christian path. I would call him a true follower of christ. The love that shines from him is testiment to this.
I only have a dislike for narrow minded fools, and I guess it was during the time I spent in christian churches that gave occasion for me to meet a rather disturbing number of such people amidst 'employees' of the various churches I attended.

This Cory Burnell guy that Runlola spoke of, he was the one that made me think of that joke. Mind you, the version of this joke I was recently told applied to two cities here in Australia that always seem to be in competition with each other.[Smiley]

Blessings,
James

hmm... maybe the new US holochaust will be committed against fundamentalist christians succeeding from the union rather than new age government questioning hippies?

Hmm....

that's just absurd and funny, if it happens I wouldn't know whether to laugh or cry.

Hehehe....reminds me of another funny - a discussion between an angel and a demon from Terry Pratchet and Neil Gaiman's book  - Good Omens -

Aziraphale: "Asteroid strike? Quite the fashion these days, I understand. Strike into the Indian Ocean, great big cloud of dust and vapor, goodbye all higher life forms."
Crowley: "Wow."
Aziraphale: "Doesn't bear thinking about it, does it."
Crowley: "All the higher life forms scythed away, just like that."
Aziraphale: "Terrible."
Crowley: "Nothing left but dust and fundamentalists."

I agree.....kinda' [Cheesy] Long back I posted a joke about God being white cause otherwise he would have said "I is that I is" and recieved lots of flak from it and was called everything. The thing I am taking note of is that it seems to me one can make jokes about Christians and noone notices, but make one about blacks, gays  or even jews and you might get harassed ridiculed or sued or worse.

I remember!

Ahh....some people just need to learn to get rid of their persecution complexes and get a sense of humor. I geuss in a way I'm more used to living in the Australian culture that never takes anything too seriously and is good at laughing at itsself.
